In the first sentence I used the word almost because Mr. Riedel has yet to cross a key milestone. In another article he used the word "contain" in reference to Pakistan. The day he uses "defeat," in reference to Pakistan, that would be the day of his redemption. Likewise for all American legislators/GOTUS who are currently embedded with Pakistan and are enablers of terrorist attacks on Americans. Recall how Powell until last December (2010) was making a case for more, more, more, more military hardware for the Pakistan military while PakMil was directing more, more, more attacks on Americans. BTW, why is Powell not advocating "past is past" policy to his successor Hillary Clinton/CIA/GOUTS when she is reading the riot act to Kiyani.
