The Afghan government under President Hamid Karzai controls just 30 percent of the country, the top US intelligence official said Wednesday. Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the resurgent Taliban controls 10 percent to 11 percent of the country and Karzai's government controls 30 percent to 31 percent. But more than six years after the US invasion to oust the Taliban and establish a stable central government, the majority of Afghanistan's population remains under local tribal control, he said. Lt. Gen. Michael Maples, the Defense Intelligence Agency director, told the committee at the same hearing that the Pakistan government is trying to crack down on the lawless tribal area along the Afghan border area where Taliban and al-Qaida are believed to be training, and from which they launch attacks in Afghanistan. But neither the Pakistani military nor the tribal Frontier Corps is trained or equipped to fight, he said. Maples said it would take three to five years to address those deficiencies and see a difference in their ability to fight effectively in the tribal areas.
