It is still a question as what is Al-Qaeda and who has formed this organisation, but one thing is certain this dreaded organisation is responsible for wide-spread deaths and destruction in the whole world. But now this will be happy news that now Al-Qaeda-related terrorists are winding up their activities both in Afghanistan and Pakistan. There was a time when Osama bin Laden and some other dreaded terrorists were being presented as heroes of the Muslim world, but now the situation has changed. Now these terrorists whether they are Taliban or belong to some other groups are the most hated people both in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

There will be no denying the fact Barack Obama has used diplomacy as an effective weapon for hitting this dreaded organisation. The time is not far away when Obama and his team will succeed in restoration of order and peace both in Pakistan and Afghanistan. But corruption is still the main problem of both Pakistan and Afghanistan. This is a fact that corruption is the main reason of terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

A long anticipated review of President Barack Obama's war strategy concludes that it has eroded the power of the al-Qaida terrorists who attacked America in 2001 and the resurgent Taliban militants who gave them cover.

The findings cement Obama's plan to stay the course in the joint war theater of Afghanistan and Pakistan. U.S. troops are expected to remain in a combat role in Afghanistan through 2014, when it is anticipated that Afghan forces will take the lead.

In at least a modest way, U.S. troops will begin to leave Afghanistan in July, according to the review. That is the same timeline that Obama promised one year ago when he ordered 30,000 more forces into Afghanistan to take on the Taliban.

Obama will discuss the new findings Thursday.

"In Afghanistan, the momentum achieved by the Taliban in recent years has been arrested in much of the country and reversed in some key areas, although these gains remain fragile and reversible," an unclassified summary of the review found.

"Most important, al-Qaida's senior leadership in Pakistan is weaker and under more sustained pressure than at any other point since it fled Afghanistan in 2001," it said.

Despite the cautious optimism from the White House a year after Obama ordered an extra 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, the president must overcome skepticism on Capitol Hill and among Americans tired of the long, expensive conflict.
