Following the Terrorists Home

Condi hasn’t asked me, but in case she actually wants to do something about these murder academies, here’s a tip: Next time you’re in the area drop in on President Musharraf and tell him we’re cutting off our military assistance to Pakistan so we can shift it to India.

FRANKFURT, Sept. 9 — The accused conspirators in a bombing plot disrupted last week in Germany were part of what the authorities say is a small, but growing, flow of militants from Germany and other Western countries who are receiving terrorism training at camps in Pakistan.

Beginning early last year, at least five of the suspects traveled to the tribal regions of Waziristan, where they learned to prepare chemical explosives and military-grade detonators that they intended to use to build three car bombs, according to German officials and a confidential German intelligence document that details the allegations.

Are those cheerfully decorated, overloaded logging trucks I see in the background?

Either that or they're really big cigars.

Thank you, Jerome.I think you've just suggested a cottage industry I might enter.

Why should Pakistan get all that filthy lucre? Little cabins, fireside chats, scary stories (which should be easy to come by) and s'mores*.

Did I mention the canoe competition and volleyball?

*S'mores: A s'more is a traditional campfire treat popular in the United States, consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a slab of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.
