    “It certainly seems like a scattered strategy,”

    You’re going to break your brain looking for coherence in the incoherent.

    I’ve seen reports that President Obama was absolutely furious at the recently retired Adm. Mullen’s testimony where he openly stated that the ISI was working with the Haqqani network. Well, more than working; the group was a “veritable arm” of the ISI.

    The question is why the anger? That it complicated US-Pakistani relations? or that it complicated this attempt to hand things off to Islamabad?

    Just how much is electoral politics driving things with this Administration?

    And for those keeping track of things: Army General Martin Dempsey is the current (new) chairman of the JCS.

    For those who’ve been paying any attention at all, you don’t even need to read Meade’s article to answer that question. 😉
