After two convoys were attacked the Pakistan Army says this is what happened followed by the Taliban response

The Pakistani military claimed 40 Taliban fighters and eight soldiers were killed during the operation, and another 40 Taliban were captured. Maulvi Omar, the spokesman for Baitullah Mehsud, the commander of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, disputed the claim. Omar said 25 Pakistani soldiers and seven Taliban fighters were killed in the battles.
"It seems that armed forces are conquering India," Omar said, mocking the Pakistani military's account of the fighting in South Waziristan. "But [Taliban] loyal to Baitullah Mehsud are bravely resisting the military across South Waziristan Agency."
Omar also stated the Pakistani military will have a difficult time establishing control in South Waziristan. "Entrance to Waziristan is easy but maintaining writ there could be a very difficult task for them," Omar said.

I wonder who to believe. I also wonder when we will start training up the Pak army.
