Pakistan is still recuperating from the disastrous floods last month that ravaged towns along the Indus River. The United States has played a major role in recovery efforts, sending billions of dollars in aid. Anti-American feelings that have run high in Pakistan for several years are starting to see signs of being reset. 

It's day three for the BBC's Aleem Maqbool as he travels down the Indus River in Pakistan, reporting on the aftermath of the floods. What he sees, particularly in Swat Valley, is that that feelings towards the Americans have changed for the better.

Joining us is America's Deputy Speical Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Dan Feldman.
