I worked with "Hank" back in 2001/2002 as a member of TF DAGGER.... not sure I agree the same strategy would work in Pakistan, but thought you (and possibly the StormBringer crowd) would enjoy the news article.
I'll work on a sanitized Advisor article for you this week. It's been a bit crazy over here during the Ashura. We've been conducting multiple operations (mainly warrants and ambushes), and unfortunately, my partner, Federal Police LTC _____ is still in critical but stable condition.
Will update later.
Take care brotha . . . .
