WikiLeaks Cables Confirm Secret U.S. War Ops in Pakistan :
http://www.wikileaks-forum.com/index.php?topic=20813.0

Extract :
"AMY GOODMAN: Let me read excerpts from the cable classified by Ambassador Anne Patterson in Islamabad, Pakistan on October 9th, 2009. Quote: "The Pakistani Army has for just the second time approved deployment of U.S. special operation elements to support Pakistani military operations. The first deployment, with [SOC-PAK elements] embedded with the Frontier Corps in [BLANK], occurred in September. Previously, the Pakistani military leadership adamantly opposed letting us embed our special operations personnel with their military forces. The developments of the past two months thus appear to represent a sea change in their thinking."

It also says, quote, "These deployments are highly politically sensitive because of widely-held concerns among the public about Pakistani sovereignty and opposition to allowing foreign military forces to operate in any fashion on Pakistani soil. Should these developments and/or related matters receive any coverage in [the Pakistani] or U.S. media, the Pakistani military will likely stop making requests for such assistance."
