Quotes

“The NDMA too often has tried to ` "go it alone’ and not involve other agencies even though they have expertise and experience,” said one aid worker who asked not to be named. He said that while the NDMA said it could go it alone, when floods or other disasters hit, its “reluctance to call in international agencies” meant people suffered more than they should."
"ISI mouthpieces in the media have been quick to blame India for the attack. Clearly, the intellect and worldview of these characters (which includes fairly senior retired military officers) is based on Bollywood masala movies like Ek Tha Tiger and Agent Vinod."
>Editor's note: Peter Bergen is CNN's national security analyst, a director at the New America Foundation and the author of "Manhunt: The Ten-Year SearchSearch for bin Laden -- From 9/11 to Abbottabad. "(CNN) -- Over the weekend the United States launched drone strikes in two different locations in Yemen, killing at least 15 militants as well as three civilians. At the same time, Yemeni ground forces began what have been termed "unprecedented" operations against al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen, which may also involve additional US drone strikes, although that isn't clear right now. The US drone campaign in Yemen is very much President Obama's war."
