Maj. Gen. Jeffrey J. Schloesser quote
Maj. Gen. Jeffrey J. Schloesser, commander, Combined Joint Task Force 101 and 101st Airborne Division

The insurgents are trying to get between us and our Pakistani army colleagues and trying to not only just cause absolute confrontation, but real firing between the two of us. We are trying to build on lines of communication between ourselves and our Pakistani Army colleagues. I think both sides understand that the relative sanctuary that is achieved along that border area is damaging to both Afghanistan, as well as to Pakistan. And I think both sides understand that that cannot continue.
