Hardball: US Wants Names of Pakistani Operatives

Pakistani officials tell The New York Times that the Obama
administration has demanded the names of top-level intelligence
operatives in order to find out whether or not they aided Osama bin
Laden. It's the latest sign of growing tensions between Pakistan and
Washington. Pakistan has always rejected demands to name operatives in
its Inter-services Intelligence Directorate, which aided the fight
against the Soviet Army in Afghanistan in the 1980s and is believed to
have maintained close ties with bin Laden since.
