Huge changes in Pakistan

The MSM hasn't really understood the import of this story, and has pretty much buried it, but Laer, at Cheat Seeking Missiles realized that Pakistan is cracking down on the country's main terrorist breeding grounds: the madrassas. You can read the WaPo story here (the madrassas point is buried in the last paragraphs), but it's here that you can read Laer's concise wrap-up:

To fight terror, Islam must force the closure of madrassas run by crazed jihadists, so they cannot spread their vile disease to impressionable young men. Musharraf needs to go further than simply expelling the foreign students, but this public recognition of the danger of the schools is good, particularly because Pakistan has become such a fertile breeding ground for terrorists.
