    • April 13, 2010

    Coalition strategy in Afghanistan has reached an impasse: tactical successes will not defeat the Taliban while Pakistan offers sanctuary, nor can security be “Afghanized” by a government that lacks legitimacy and is irreparably unpopular.

    Expert: Recent arrests represent only tactical changes in Pakistan’s counterterrorism policy

    • March 24, 2010

    • March 23, 2010

    A military campaign against Yemen’s secessionist Southern Movement would only further inflame its supporters and increase support for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
