The most salient news is the confirmation that our supposed allies in Pakistan -- who just received $7.5 billion in fresh aid from the US last week -- have been covertly working with the Taliban. Well, at least the Pakistani spy service has been doing that. But then, this is only news in the modest sense that there had never been confirmation of this. But it's been presumed that our friends in Pakistan weren't always necessarily on our side.
But this is actually a huge deal, as David P. Goldman, writing under his pseudonym Spengler, notes in his latest column at Asia Times Online. The fact is, everyone wants to maintain the Pakistani lie, rather than acknowledge the scary alternative.http://www.businessinsider.com/wikileaks-pakistan-2010-7?utm_source=Triggermail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=BI_Select_072310_Personal#ixzz0up7KlQTW
