FIZAGAT, PAKISTAN - NOVEMBER 20:  A paramilitary soldier from Pakistan's Frontier Corps searches a motorist for weapons at a checkpoint November 20, 2007 at Fizagat in the troubled Swat Valley of northwestern Pakistan. The Pentagon announced that the U.S. government plans to help train and equip the paramilitary troops in counterinsurgency tactics to fight Taliban and Al Qaida in Pakistan. Most members of the Frontier Corps are drawn from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), in the west of the country. The paramilitary troops are currently battling pro-Taliban militants in Pakistan's Swat Valley, which has been virtually overwhelmed by heavily armed Islamic extremists.
