Paks Tell Obama Envoy Grossman To Take A Hike
January 18, 2012
The relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has been extraordinarily strained since the kill operation mounted against al-Qaeda leader bin-Laden revealed him to be living in what was essentially plain sight in the military town of Abbottabad. Matters have been additionally compounded by a series of recent and controversial Predator drone attacks which have resulted in numerous Pakistani Army casualties [allegedly 24 in the month of November] and a month long suspension of attacks.
Grossman's itinerary was to include discussing Team Obama's ongoing negotiations with the Afghan Taliban as the administration prepares to extricate itself from the country as soon as Mr. Obama deems it politically tenable.
The Pakistani parliament is currently engaged in a wholesale review of the relationship between the two countries.
