The article describes how Pakistani officials have continuously declared the Taliban as "terrorist elements that must be dealt with a strong hand," how the operations against the Talibans "have been very successful" and how the armed forces have the Taliban "on the run." The author says that while it is true that Americans need Pakistan on their side in the war on terror, they have the right to press Pakistanis and take a hard and long look at what they are actually doing and not at what they are saying.
