This chapter examines the groups responsible for suicide terrorism in Pakistan, including their objectives, state sponsorship, targeting patterns, local community support, and recruitment. It shows that the initiation and trajectory of the Pakistani suicide campaign are functions of the evolving political and military alliance between the United States and Pakistan since 2002. The chapter also evaluates the consequences of the recent escalation of U.S. drone attacks in the region.
