As Pakistani leaders stand united against U.S. strikes in the tribal areas, Senior Bush administration official Stephan Hadly said Pakistan is not yet equipped to combat its militant threat. National security adviser to President Stephen Hadley declined to comment on American counterterrorism efforts in Pakistan but said Washington was trying to help Pakistan's government address the threat. Speaking to the media, he insisted the problem could only be overcome when Pakistan's writ was firmly established in the tribal areas, and that the United States works very closely with Pakistan authorities.  President Zardari is scheduled to meet with U.S. President Bush on the 23rd, and the issue of cross-border strikes is sure to be very high on the agenda.
