The US has put Pakistan “on a clock” and Islamabad has only weeks to show real progress in a crackdown against the Pakistani Taliban, a report by AP claimed.


Quoting official sources, AP claims White House National Security  Adviser James Jones and CIA Director Leon Panetta delivered the deadline during their visit to Islamabad last week.


The US also provided evidence to Pakistani officials. The evidence showed that two TTP members escorted Times Square botched attack suspect Faisal Shahzad to a training base in Waziristan, where he received some instruction in how to build explosives.
