The BBC says:

Washington has pinpointed the frontier areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan as the most pressing central point in which to win the war on terror.

Michael Chertoff, the US secretary for homeland security, told the BBC that successes against al-Qaeda should not lead to a weakening of resolve.

He warned that militants in Pakistan were training recruits who could mix inconspicuously in Western society.

Who would have thought it, eh. Needless to say, the "frontier areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan" have been the "central point" in the "war on terror" for some time. And if Bush hadn't decided for party political reasons five years ago to pretty much forget about this real war, and instead launch an illegal and ill-judged attack on Iraq, then the world would be in a lot better shape right now.
