Cutting off Aid to Pakistan

January 5, 2018

Episode Notes:

Stephen Tankel, assistant professor at American University and adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, talks with Jason about the announcement this week that the United States is going to cut back on its security aid to Pakistan. The move is a protest against the Pakistani Inter-Service's Intelligence support of the Taliban and Haqqani network. Stephen discusses that support, U.S. aid and assistance, and the implications of cutting back on this aid.
