RAWALPINDI, Pakistan -- A Pakistani intelligence official says eight troops were killed in a militant attack on the army's headquarters outside the capital of Islamabad.

The attack Saturday also left four of the assailants dead, the military said.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Troops were searching for two militants believed to still be inside the compound.

    My son is in the Army. He believes they need to stay. I will believe him over any liberal CNN junkie who are gullable and believe the liberal rhetoric put on the news. Try changing your channel and getting ACCURATE reports of what is going on there. Unless you like being terrorized in your own back yard your thinking is scary. How many terrorists attacks have happened since 911 in America? Yeah. Thats right. Bring them home and its starts all over in my backyard and yours. No thanks. I say, keep up the good fight and come home when someone (NOT OBAMA) says its time.
