U.S.-Pakistan Relations

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Much of the reporting around the “Afghan War Logs” that were released earlier this week by the Website Wikileaks has highlighted accusations of double dealing by Pakistan’s intelligence service, the ISI. Blake Hounshell, managing editor at Foreign Policy and contributor to the magazine’s Passport blog talks about the accusations and what the "Afghan War Logs" publication means for U.S.-Pakistani relations.

Does Blake Hounshell have in mind retaliation of the kind the US engages in? Something like the retaliation against Bradley Manning? Or perhaps the retaliation the US engages in when it tortures prisoners at Bagram air base in Afghanistan? Or the retaliation Obama promises when he threatens assassination of _American_ citizens?

What is the US spending money on? Sheesh! The US outspends most of the rest of the world combined.... on what? Weapons.

It would be refreshing to hear someone who actually thinks, who dares to challenge US dogma — somebody outside of the Blake Hounshell, eastern academic Boston to DC corridor of narrow-mindedness.

Outside the US, there has been a great deal more discussion of evidence of US war crimes. Not surprisingly, there has been little — if any — discussion of this via NPR, The New York Times, CNN, etc.
