WASHINGTON—The U.S. military is secretly diverting aerial drones and weaponry from the Afghan battlefront to significantly expand the CIA's campaign against militants in their Pakistani havens.

The shift in strategic focus reflects the U.S. view that, with Pakistan's military unable or unwilling to do the job, more U.S. force against terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan is now needed to turn around the struggling Afghan war effort across the border.

Its a complete waste of time. The ISI is protecting the Taliban in those tribal regions.They also could be providing the Taliban with intelligence from the United States.There is some evidence that the Pakistani authority tip off the Taliban.The ISI is training the Taliban and Al Qaeda.ISI officers helped plan the 2008 Indian embassy bombing in Kabul attempt.As long as the Army intelligence in Pakistan exists will be a futile attempt by the CIA.
