U.S. officials to visit Pakistan in Times Square probe

CIA Director Leon Panetta and National Security Adviser James Jones are traveling to Pakistan to meet with officials there about the status of the Times Square bombing investigation, a U.S. official said Tuesday.

Panetta and Jones departed Monday night, the official said. They also plan to discuss efforts to prevent future terrorist attacks in their meetings there, the official added.

The U.S. government wants to see continued Pakistani cooperation in determining what role the Pakistani Taliban may have played in assisting Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the botched Times Square car bombing in New York City. Shahzad is a naturalized U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent.

Washington also wants an aggressive push by Pakistani authorities to take action against al Qaeda-linked groups in the tribal areas.

    Muslims are a bunch of morons. I guess if u read the this crap quran u become one. Millions have died in Iraq , afghanistan not bcoz of US but bcoz of Alqaeda & Taliban(Holy Islamic terrorists) suicide attacks. But Pakistanis & Arabs sympathise with these terrorists, so they only see how many were killed by the US. The USA is justified in attacking any Muslim country for the crime of 9/11. US could easily have nuked any of these countries but has to invent high tech weapons like drones to reduce civilian casaulties. Can the Taliban or Al Qaeda claim to have done anything to reduce civilian casaualties , in fact it is the exact opposite they glorify these bombings and think civilians deaths are justified. Taliban killed 180 people watching a volleyball game and the Pakis are saying the drones which kill about terrorists is the problem. Every suicide attack kills hundered times more innocent civilians than any US attack. Muslims have been killing each other for centuries, long before US even existed. Y is that Allah so angry
