However, there is increasing likelihood that the findings, rather than explain what happened, will become a weapon in the regional struggle between Syria, Iran and their Lebanese allies on the one hand.

Letting go of Musharraf Despite an election drubbing, Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf is adamant he will participate in the next administration. That's fine by Washington - beefing up Musharraf's regime to defeat terrorists has been a cornerstone of America's post-September 11 foreign policy. But the dramatic rise in terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan has shown the failure of this approach and Washington may now be better off putting its weight behind the new parliament and the Pakistani people. - Najum Mushtaq

Uncertainty on terror's 'central front' Washington appears unsure whether Pakistan's election results are a setback to US strategic interests or an advance. Embattled President Pervez Musharraf is looking much less "indispensable" as an ally in the US's "war on terror". At the same time, close cooperation with the Pakistani military - which retired general Musharraf commanded until last fall - remains essential. - Jim Lobe
