Special Envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke praised Pakistan and their progress against the Taliban.  The flashpoint of the equation being when the Taliban took over the Northern Swat Valley an alpine enclave that had Pakistan’s only ski resort.  The ski resort had become a symbol of Taliban dominance and that was the straw that broke the Taliban’s back.

Now the government is stepping in much bigger and gaining praise from the US.
