And, for reference...

CTV.ca News Staff

A controversial article in the July 19th issue of The New Republic suggests that the Bush administration is ramping up pressure on Pakistan to capture Osama bin Laden in time before the U.S. election.
...
"It would be best if the arrest or killing of (any) HVT were announced on 26, 27, or 28 July" -- the first three days of the Democratic National Convention in Boston -- the magazine says is what a White House aide told Pakistan's intelligence chief, Lieutenant General Ehsan ul-Haq.

2. To counter mounting evidence of ISI terror support
Pakistan is one of the world's major supporters and promoters of terrorism and WMD proliferation.

Their connections to 911, bin Laden, the evacuation of terrorists in Afghanistan when they were surrounded and doomed, their connection to the murder of Daniel Perle, their nuclear proliferation (illegally obtaining nuclear weapons technology and transferring it to N. Korea), support of terrorism and nuclear brinkmanship with India, all need to covered up by the neo con supporting corporate establishment.
