Musharraf Finally Admits to Pakistan's Well-Known Border Issues

According to a recent BBC article titled Musharraf Admits Border Problems, "Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has conceded that some border security forces have been letting Taleban fighters cross into Afghanistan." This article gives an in-depth analysis of the situation and related issues.

The existence of Pakistan's border problem has been a well-known and documented issue for some time now, so there is little to be learned from Musharraf's comments. However, Musharraf's admission of this problem's existence is, in and of itself, a significant indicator for how much the situation has deteriorated.
