Next attack on US will come from PAK
Next terror attack on US will originate in Pak:
Pakistan is the weakest link in world security and the next terror attack in the US will originate in that country, said a high-powered bipartisan US Congressional commision, adding it is the "intersection of nuclear weapons and terrorism."
"Were one to map terrorism and weapons of mass destruction today, all roads would intersect in Pakistan," the report "World at Risk" said while devoting a whole chapter on the Islamic country.
"Although Pakistan is an ally(of US) there is a grave danger it could also be an unwitting source of a terrorist attack on the United States, possibly with weapons of mass destruction," the report said.
The Commission was chaired by former US Senator Bob Graham and included Wendy Sherman, a former senior Clinton Administation official, who is now the chair of the foreign policy transition team of the incoming Obama Administration.
Speaking on CNN television, Graham called Pakistan the "intersection of the perfect storm."
In remarks suggesting that Pakistan could be emerging as a most lethal tinderbox, the report noted that "Pakistan has nuclear weapons and a history of unstable governments and parts of its territory are currently a safe haven for Al-Qaida and other terrorists."
The authors of the report said they had "singled out Pakistan for special attention in the report, as we believe it poses a serious challenge to America's short-term and medium-term national security interests. Indeed many government officials and outside experts believe that the next terrorist attack against the US is likely to originate from within the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan."
