The US is predicting "spectacular" attacks by the Taliban against US forces in the near future. They want Pakistan to do a better job containing the militants.
Analysis: This war never ended, despite the public proclamations of victory. This looks to me like the Bush Administration is trying to get ahead of the story, because it's sure going to look bad if and when we suffer a defeat that's bad enough to make it into the papers. Given that journalists have no real access to what's going on, if the citizens are being warned that something bad is going to happen, you can only imagine how bad things really are there right now.
