|The A-List: Ahmed Rashid - Obama has failed the youth of the Arab Spring|
| Recently an American friend asked me how let down I must feel as a Pakistani at the tail-end of the first Obama administration.|
It is true that Pakistan started out as a strategic ally of the US and ended up as a pariah. But if I were a Tunisian, Egyptian or Libyan who had overthrown decades of dictatorship, a Syrian fighting the bloodiest war ever in the Middle East against the foulest of dictators, or a Bahraini whose rulers have stopped injured demonstrators from going to hospital without a peep from Washington, I would feel equally let down by US foreign policy over the past four years.
