ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the approach of the U.S. on the terrorism activities in Afghanistan and Pakistan. These are two different political countries facing their own internal problems, such as the issue of al-Qaida and Taliban training camps in Pakistan's Federally Administered Areas (FATA or Tribal Areas). It describes the situation in Afghanistan, including the insurgency lead by the al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, and Pakistan, including the Taliban insurgency in FATA. It notes the regional strategy used by the U.S. President Barack Obama, which is directed at stemming the influence and lethality of al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It also mentions the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) projects and robust diplomacy presence in both countries.
