John Schmidt on Pakistan on the Brink?

Q&A with John Schmidt

Why is there such a difference in Pakistan's policy towards the Afghanistan Taliban vs. the Pakistan Taliban?

John R. Schmidt, a former senior officer in the U.S. Foreign Service who was Political Counselor at the US Embassy in Pakistan (1998-2001) and who currently teaches a graduate seminar on "Pakistan and the Islamic Threat" at the George Washington University's Elliot School of International Affairs, joined us for a discussion on the precarious state of Pakistan and the threats that emanate from within its borders.
