Pakistan arrests 9 Al Qaeda memebers


Pakistani authorities have arrested nine people linked to al Qaeda who are believed to have been involved in recent attacks in Karachi, Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said. One of those arrested includes a close associate of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the minister said Sunday.
Pakistan has been a somewhat schizophrenic ally in the War on Terror, but by and large they have helped and hopefully even more help will be forthcoming in the future and Pakistan gets it’s own internal problems with Al Qaeda supporters and sympathizers under control.
