Invading Pakistan, Redux

Who, exactly, wants to move through Pakistan if necessary?

From AFP (February 2008)

McCain zeroed in on a speech by Obama in August in which he said he would be prepared to strike Al-Qaeda on Pakistani territory if Islamabad would not respond to actionable intelligence.

The issue McCain raised was "telegraphing" possible military moves.

Palin, yesterday, in reference to Pakistan:

I believe that America has to exercise all options in order to stop the terrorists who are hell-bent on destroying America, and our allies. We have got to have all options out there on the table

Well, she didn't say explicitly that we'd be in Pakistan.

But of course, GWB issued orders several months ago which allowed US ops in Pakistan.
