...As a good-faith gesture to make up for the bin Laden debacle, arresting his long-time deputy and al Qaeda's likely new leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and the Taliban's Mullah Omar would also be more than welcome.

...stop resisting a key administrative measure it beat back three years ago—to bring the ISI under civilian rather than military control. Pakistan's civilian rulers may be incompetents, but they lack the ISI's signature traits of over-ambitiousness and willful disregard for civilian lives.

Really? "Good faith gesture" from the Pakistani military??
