Pakistani troops are still patrolling their side of the border, but are no longer pressuring the pro-Taliban Pushtun tribes in Pakistan to surrender al Qaeda members and Afghan Taliban leaders. Afghans fear that the Pakistanis have made a deal with the tribes, the Taliban and al Qaeda, in which attacks on Pakistani targets would cease, and all al Qaeda and Taliban efforts would be directed at Afghanistan and the coming elections in September. Pakistan is at war with al Qaeda because of suicide bomb attacks inside Pakistan, and al Qaeda support for Islamic radical groups in Pakistan. In reality, the Pakistani government would like to have more control over their border tribes. But many of the Pushtun tribesmen in the army, and the border police, are hostile to an aggressive policy against their fellow tribesmen.
