Tensions continue to rise between U.S. and Pakistani intelligence agencies. The CIA’s top spy was pulled out of the country last week after receiving several death threats. The CIA believes that its Pakistani counterpart, the ISI, may have deliberately blown the cover of the operative: his name was made public in a legal complaint by a family of drone attack victims. 

To shed some more light on this deliberately murky affair, we speak with Art Keller. A former case officer with the CIA, Keller served in Pakistan in 2006. Also with us is Mark Mazzetti, national security correspondent for our partner The New York Times.
