I was the first member of my family to cross into Pakistan and find his ancestral village.
Pakistan is an old ally of the United States.
Pakistan is both an ally in the war on terror, and in some sense, a battleground of the war on terror.
Pakistan's being an ally and helping the United States, we ought to show Pakistan that we are appreciative for the help that's been extended.
The Pakistani government and its allies must overhaul their policies in Pakistan.
The U.S. might have diminished al-Qaeda's capabilities in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it has not diminished the threat from radical Islamist terrorists as a whole.
There's no question that the main location of Al Qaida is in tribal areas of Pakistan.
Pakistan is riddled with problems that are rooted in the disproportionate power of the state. Aid has only boosted that power.
Nobody will be allowed to use Pakistan soil for any form of aggression toward any friend or foe.
There is still a severe and scary amount of extreme poverty in rural parts of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Burma and sub-Saharan Africa.
Any talk of me engaging in a conspiracy against Pakistan is completely baseless.
As recently as the 1970s, some Pashtun leaders in Afghanistan were pushing to create a new state, Pashtunistan, by joining with Pashtuns in Pakistan.
I have a pretty amazing life. Even back-to-back deployments - Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Turkey - it's still pretty rewarding.
As far as Afghanistan is concerned, I'm not sure whether the United States and Pakistan have the same objectives. Pakistan would like Afghanistan to be under its control.
Sadly, Indians are not very easily accepted in Pakistan, and that has a lot to do with the governments.
