So who is Al Qaeda Protecting in South Pakistan?

"Pakistani troops and paramilitary forces using artillery and helicopter gunships launched a new assault today against al-Qaida and Taliban suspects in a tribal region near Afghanistan, two days after a fierce assault that left dozens dead.
In a report from Islamabad, CNN said Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf told them Pakistani forces had surrounded a 'high-value target' that was being protected by al-Qaida fighters. CNN said the identity of the target was not known. "

This is simply by deduction considering the level of defense brought to bear by the resistance fighters. "Some 39 people -- including 15 troops and 26 militants, died in the raid on Tuesday, the military said today in a statement. Eighteen other suspects were captured. "
