NOT QUITE:

U.S. forces pursue Taliban into Pakistan (LOLITA C. BALDOR, 3/01/07, The Associated Press)

American forces on Afghanistan's eastern border routinely fire upon and pursue Taliban enemies into Pakistan, defense officials told Congress on Thursday, offering the most detailed description to date of U.S. action in that region.

Actually, by their admitted inability to assert authority there the Pakistanis have ceded sovereignty and it can in no wise be considered their territory.

OTOH if the tribal elders would accept Iranian money to blow up Americans and vow to kill all the jews there'd probably be calls to accept their independence and give them loads of development funds. Perhaps they can take some media training from Hezbollah.
