The Taliban Resurgnece in Pakistan

VIEW EVENT DETAILS

The Government of Pakistan has come under heavy criticism for failing to adequately address the resurgence of Taliban and Al Qaeda forces along the border areas with Afghanistan. Many argue that the recent truce with the Taliban in Swat Valley is a flawed strategy that would further embolden the insurgents. The brazen attack on the visiting Sri Lankan National Cricket Team seems to reaffirm this viewpoint. Please join us for a breakfast briefing with noted Pakistani journalist, Hamid Mir to discuss Pakistan's current political landscape and the implications of a resurgent Taliban for Pakistan's ability to defeat the insurgents within its territory and along the border areas with Afghanistan.
