This is so potentially explosive, I just had to make a separate post for it:
Also acknowledged in the meeting, as Shahzad tells it, is that "Washington's political leadership, like the Pentagon, now accepts that the Taliban-led insurgency in Afghanistan is best tackled with contact between the Pakistan armed forces and the Taliban, and not by the political governments of the region."
That statement is a tad funky. It implies that Hillary was acting in concert with the Pentagon, and that the Pentagon has thrown Gen. Stanley McChrystal's proposal to stage a full bull counterinsurgency operation on behalf of the Karzai regime under the Hummer.
Washington is ready, says Shahzad, to see Pakistan's President Zardari "sidelined." That would be a radical departure from the AfPak strategy the White House outlined in March, a major stated objective of which was "assisting efforts to enhance civilian control and stable constitutional government in Pakistan."...
... Shahzad would have us believe that our secretary of state, who is mostly known for being strident and abrasive, has, over a three-day period, managed to avert the demise of our republic by cutting the biggest dope deal ever with some of the biggest sleazebags ever.
