I don’t pretend to know exactly what to do about it, but we have plenty of evidence of acts of war committed against America by our “ally” Pakistan, now brought into the open by retiring Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen. Defending Americans is Job One for a Commander in Chief, and I don’t know what other Presidents would have or could do here, nor do I know what this one has done so far, but it’s not nearly enough. We have already embarrassed the Pakistani military with our successful raid on Bin Laden and I know we are in a difficult spot with the current dynamics in Afghanistan, India, the United Nations, etc., but embarrassment is mild compared to the tougher stance we need to take with the Pakistanis right away. To paraphrase Jefferson: millions for defense, but not a penny for tribute.
