Now Qaedas target is Pak, not Iraq

November 27th, 2008 - 5:04 pm ICT by ANI  

Lahore, Nov 27 (ANI): A senior US military commander has said that Pakistan had now become Al Qaedas main target instead of Iraq. He also said that the terror group had stepped up its efforts to destabilise the country.

General James Conway, the head of Marine Corps and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that Iraq was now a rear-guard action on the part of Al Qaeda.

Theyve changed their strategic focus not to Afghanistan but to Pakistan, because Pakistan is the closest place where you have the nexus of terrorism and nuclear weapons, the Daily Times quoted him as saying in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. (ANI)
