The Obligatory Odd Couple

Because reading this kind of news sure beats going there.


In NYT today, the first nonchalant references I’ve seen to CIA on the ground in Pakistan. It’s what every interested person imagines, CIA working with ISI, however tenuous that working relationship would be.

The piece is an excellent round up of recent history, maneuvers and motivation. There is mention of UAV action in Pakistan, reference to its covert application, and some notes on the otherwise unacknowledged tactical cooperation on the ground. But the “well, obviously” treatment of actual tactical cooperation, on the ground, is intriguing.

This might be a precursor to further import information about what is actually happening in this important war inside the war.

C.I.A. and Pakistan Work Together, but Do So Warily
