US officials are claiming an escalation in monitoring of foreign nationals by the Pakistani government, including the restriction of movement inside the country. This has included barring US embassy officials from the city of Peshawar.
Officials have concluded that this is a backlash against the US primarily over Obama Administration policy, but aid organizations are reporting that travel difficulties are affecting their operations too.
As well they might, as the US used the guise of a “vaccination” program in their assassination of Osama bin Laden, and has used consulate employee status as cover for CIA operations, including the infamous incident surrounding Raymond Davis.
This has added suspicion of legitimate consulate employees, of course, but the fake vaccination program has also added to the general distrust of foreigners, even those engaged in humanitarian operations. Efforts to vaccinate in the country could be set back for years by the plot.

Gosh! Do you suppose?
How dare theose wogs try to curtail foreign interference in their country
We believe that all the suicide bombers were financed, trined and excuted by embassy staff as mostly are CIA operators in the embassy and even aid workers are mostly CIA operatives.
There is no doubt in my mind as americans are habitual of illegal things.
This weekend you posted two stories about a large number of insurgent deaths including 50 dead in Paktika province reported in a Washington Post story. The next day an AP report said 80 insurgents died in Paktika. Typically these large rounded number estimates are followed by reports of civilian casualties. If the media is going to report large guesstimates of insurgent casualties than at the very least they should report actual US casualties in Paktika in the same timeframe. At least four US soldiers have died in Paktika province in July including Thursday, July 21, when the 29th US combat fatality for July, 2011.
Now if you add the 45 US soldiers confirmed killed in Afghanistan in June, 2011 and add the 29 killed so far in July the total is 74. Chances are the total US dead in the last two months is far more accurate than the estimate of 50 to 80 dead insurgents reported by the Post and AP this weekend.
