    Pakistan claims victory in militant stronghold

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan's army claimed Monday to have routed Taliban militants in a stronghold near the Afghan border but turned up no sign of Osama bin Laden or al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri.

    The government ordered a halt to the operation to allow some of the 300,000 families who fled airstrikes and combat in the Bajur region to return home for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    Combat is only one part of COIN. Pakistan does not seem to have a strong grasp of fish-water separation nor economic development that is required to put down and keep insurgencies down.
