After the publication of an interactive website visualizing drone strikes in Pakistan, Asia Society Senior Advisor Hassan Abbas analyzes the difficulty of assessing whether drone strikes are actually an effective terror-fighting tool.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar told an audience at Asia Society that despite tough talk from India this week, Pakistan remains committed to dialogue with the country to find "peacefully coexist."
"Having served on Pakistan’s police force and having lived in Abbottabad," writes Hassan Abbas, "I can confidently argue that a more resourceful and skilled police force there could have nabbed Bin Laden much earlier."
