With our economy in shambles, unemployment growing, AIG taking more in bonuses than already announced, automakers going bankrupt, troops going into Afghanistan, so much debate about torture in the last administration, there seems to be little focus in Congress on a true national security crisis: the growing relationship between the Taliban and the government of Pakistan. An odd relationship, one where I imagine each side wants to be rid of the other, but where each is equally co-dependently dysfunctionally relient on the other, like a cancer to its host. To learn more, just read this excellent article in this week’s Newsweek by Fareed Zakaria, which can be found here: http://www.newsweek.com/id/173014. Until we can understand the problem, we’re just helping the cancer spread, and ironically, it may affect us. Congress needs to immediately stop all military assistance to Pakistan, and then pass the Biden-Lugar bill. — Jeff
