Mullen: Taliban hideouts can be shut down

KABUL, Afghanistan — The top US military officer said Friday that he thinks it is possible that the Pakistani military can shutdown Taliban hideouts on its soil to prevent insurgents from moving back and forth across the long, porous Afghan-Pakistan border.
A day after US President Barack Obama released a review of the US war strategy, US Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters in Kabul that fixing the problem is critical to making progress in the war. But he said he's encouraged by what Pakistan has already done to go after insurgents on its side of the border."I certainly think it is very possible that the Pakistani military will achieve the goal," he said.
