The wilds of North Waziristan, on Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, have become a crossroads for terrorism.
With U.S.-Pakistani strategic talks set to start in Washington on Wednesday, the Obama administration is growing increasingly frustrated with Islamabad's reluctance to shut down a terrorist group that provides safe haven for al Qaeda and Taliban leaders in Pakistan.
