American Arrogance

By Javed Hussain

Hillary Clinton's outburst is reminiscent of the arrogant 'stone age' call after 9/11. On reflection she just might have discovered that Pakistan has lost more soldiers than the combined losses suffered by foreign forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, and five times more civilians than those lost in the 9/11 strikes, which eminently reflect on Pakistan's commitment to the war on terror.

US still using private spies, despite doubts



Top military officials have continued to rely on a secret network of private spies who have produced hundreds of reports from deep inside Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to American officials and businessmen, despite concerns among some in the military about the legality of the operation. Earlier this year, government officials admitted that the military had sent a group of former Central Intelligence Agency officers and retired Special Operations troops into the region to collect information — some of which was used to track and kill people suspected of being militants...

Obama’s Gulf of Tonkin

by Justin Raimondo

This war, covert up until a few months ago, first reared its head when Hillary Clinton paid a tempestuous visit to Pakistan and directly accused her hosts of sheltering Osama bin Laden. The resulting firestorm marked a new low in US-Pakistani relations, and one has trouble believing it was merely a random temper tantrum on Hillary’s part. You’ll recall that during the presidential campaign, Obama openly declared his intention to go into Pakistan, given the chance to do so, and it’s entirely unsurprising he’s doing just that. First, however, his administration must come up with a rationale, and apparently they’ve settled on the pathetic act of a demented ‘lone wolf’ — as Gen. David Petraeus characterized Shahzad — as being good enough for government work. In short, the Shahzad case is Obama’s Gulf of Tonkin incident...
