India-Pakistan: November 17, 2003


India is replacing some of it's elite Border Security Force (BSF) in Kashmir with less capable police.  The BSF is being reassigned to it's original job, guarding the borders.

While Afghanistan continues to complain about Pakistan's inability to shut down Taliban and al Qaeda camps along Pakistan's border, the US is satisfied with Pakistan's efforts in the border zone. This is probably because the US has CIA, FBI and Special Forces agents operating with the Pakistani troops in the area. The Taliban and al Qaeda support in the area won't be eliminated overnight, nor will the camps. Pakistan is also shutting down Islamic schools run by radicals and cracking down on fund raising for Islamic radicals.
