PESHAWAR: The attack outside Islamabad on a convoy of trucks carrying supplies for Nato troops clearly points to a serious intelligence lapse.

Surely someone in the police or other law-enforcement agencies would have detected their movement given that these organisations have no problem keeping track of ordinary Pakistanis.
