Default Re: Worldwise: Live From Lahore (Robert Wright & Issam Ahmed)

I have always thought that the US policy towards Afghanistan was really a policy towards Pakistan. Hurlburt said as much a long time ago; Obama implied as much in his big speech about Afghanistan a long time ago. Bob acted as if the two things were distinct. But that's about the only thing I think I understand about this mess, except that the US military blackmailed Obama into the Afghan surge, which seems to be a miserable failure. Why, exactly, the military did that is beyond me.
