18 August 2010: Let us pause in our celebration of an alleged Pakistani ISI "change of heart". The Wall Street Journal reports that the ISI assesses that two-thirds of its future threats come from the terrorists it is fighting and only the one-third left over from India and elsewhere. A US professor and "counter-terrorism specialist" bravely has called the changed ISI threat assessment "earth-shattering. That's a remarkable change. It's yet another ratcheting up of the Pakistanis' recognition of not only their own internal problems but cooperation in the war on terrorism." The truth is rather more bitter and unpalatable.
