Pakistan not allies

Reader comment on item: U.S.-Pakistan Relations in Decline

Submitted by Lorenz Gude (Australia), May 4, 2011 at 23:10

I have been thinking that Pakistan's hiding of OBL outs them as a state sponsor of terrorism as did the Mumbai shootings in a different way. Pretending that Pakistan or Saudi Arabia are friends as both this administration and the previous one have continuously done or that we can meaningfully engage Iran or Syria seems to me delusional. The word 'enemies' comes to mind. So your proposal to treat Pakistan accordingly helps me see alternatives our current bipartisan pretense. Should you become Secretary of State I wish you good luck dealing with the Mandarins of Foggy Bottom.
