Questions Surround Increased US-Pakistan Cooperation

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Senior Pakistani officials, led by Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, are in Washington today for talks with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But there are some questions around who is really running the show.

Arif Rafiq, who writes the Pakistan Policy Blog, says Pakistan's army chief, General Ashfaq Kayani, will be taking the lead in these meetings. In recent weeks U.S. and Pakistani intelligence officials appear to have moved to a new level of cooperation, beginning with the capture of the Taliban's number-two, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, in Karachi. What's making this further cooperation possible? We speak to AmbPeter Galbraith, former United Nations deputy special representative to Afghanistan.

Guests:

Peter Galbraith and Arif Rafiq

Hey there. The podcasts are definitely still going. We recently changed the format of our podcast offerings, so that may have been the problem. We now offer every story on one main podcast, complete with detailed description -- we even added two original offerings! - all of which can be accessed on our podcast page (click "Podcasts" above, or paste this into your browser: www.thetakeaway.org/podcasts).

Thanks for the feedback and apologies for any difficulties you've had with our the format transition!

Your podcasts have not been updating since last Friday (3/19). All my other subscribed podcasts are working fine; it appears to be a problem with your distribution channel.

BTW: No graphic seems associated with your podcast, not even your zippy logo, making your podcasts appear rather bland next to all the others I have on my iTouch & Mac.

Podcasts? Have you stopped doing podcasts for those of us who cannot listen live?
