Sure, but what about the groups operating in Punjab? Or the networks in Karachi? Why were these provinces spared from drone strikes despite numerous attacks on civilians & military? Shehbaz Sharif on record asked TTP to spare Punjab from attacks, as if the rest of the country meant nothing to him?But if Zardari believed most of the terrorists are foreigners and therefore have to be taken out, it is hard to blame him. I think every Pakistani government has used military assets against suspected terrorists, even when they did not think they are foreigners. The raid on the mosque comes to mind.
