ISLAMABAD, Pakistan--Pakistan's army is "fighting bravely" against terrorism, the top-ranking U.S. military officer said after a visit to the country to discuss joint efforts against the Taliban and al-Qaida. The statement yesterday from Adm. Mike Mullen came despite concern voiced by U.S. government officials that Pakistan's cease-fire and peace talks with militants in its tribal regions will give hard-liners time and space to plan more attacks. The outgoing U.S. commander of NATO troops in Afghanistan this week urged Pakistan to confront militants or risk seeing the insurgency spread like a "brush fire." But Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the Pakistan army remained committed to combating terrorism.
