So I finally caught the flu. And have a deadline. And am about to leave for an assignment in a week. So expect light posting. Some Monday reading:
“Reading Swat.” Mana “Chapati Mystery” Ahmed’s take on Swat.
“Secret U.S. Unit Trains Commandos in Pakistan.” NYT’s Eric Schmitt and Jane Perlez report on a secret American task force working in FATA.
“Pakistan Lends Support for U.S. Military Strikes.” “Pakistan’s leaders have publicly denounced U.S. missile strikes as an attack on the country’s sovereignty, but privately Pakistani military and intelligence officers are aiding these attacks and have given significant support to recent U.S. missions,” WSJ reports.
