Lt Gen Karl W. Eikenberry, the outgoing commander of American troops in Afghanistan, has become the latest senior official to do the sceptic thing. Much more than the sceptic thing actually (via Swami Iyer):

Al-Qaeda and Taliban leadership presence inside of Pakistan remains a very significant problem,” Eikenberry testified before the House Armed Services Committee, warning of the growing threat of Talibanization” inside Pakistan.

A steady, direct attack against the command and control in Pakistan in sanctuary areas is essential for us to achieve success,” Eikenberry said, joining other U.S. officials in publicly pressuring the Islamabad government to crack down on the safe havens in its frontier regions. [WP]
