Derogatory information about Pakistan to the New York Times in his steady drumbeat.
To kind of what they call what they say create a narrative Arafat an anti Pakistani narrative that is resulting in not only threats that actual cuts -- -- to the Pakistan military and the pakistanis.
Are now -- -- me all along the Obama administration.
Former leaking out this kind of information.
To the New York Times and of course New York Times is not going to -- And reveal its sources but out of this one I simply must defend -- -- -- -- -- The New York Times.
His one of the few papers left in the United States that has -- full time a full time person which -- a veteran a very accomplished that person there.
-- they have local stringers they have devoted enormous amount of energy and resources to this story and they had just continued to breaking news in this area now of course the White House that wants to talk.
About diplomatic options to newspaper is going to think of the New York Times because it is among.
If not being most influential.
Paper in America.
And so at what -- It was a lot of very good reporting on the ground about how ISI which is the Pakistani intelligence service.
-- is actually working against.
-- war on terrorism.
And is helping the very people who are paying down to from high heat and and that's an excellent reporting -- Coupled with the administration.
And it has been trying to get the pakistanis attention and if they don't want get I would say that that's too bad.
Nvidia -- I don't look better ordered it unite our -- your mother to go.

I reporters killed in Pakistan so it.
Head Ani Pakistan and -- and the areas surrounding this war so deep depth of one correct and what -- correspondent.
Who was holding them accountable very brave and very courageous correspondent which this is his C.
Perhaps the proverbial straw.
And the camel's back because this is what -- Marlins -- to complain about in his farewell.
And just one kind of one last thing -- on that is just rankled.
The administration but of course the problems have simply been building jam and and I I take that America -- media.
-- are really focused on Pakistan because that is where.
A lot of the problem is now on the pakistanis have always had a million excuses for why they're doing what they're doing bash it's clear that relations has now reached a true crisis stage between our two countries.
I agree with that and I created -- way that -- -- the Obama administration seems to be signaling its intentions through the media.
Com meanwhile it next toreros.
Secretary of defense Panetta.
Went to Afghanistan appeared to sort of I think later predicate for the US leaving our -- that -- -- succeeded in destroying strategically and -- that means that as we said.
Al-Qaeda capacity attacked the United States.
Right and that's what supposedly does.
I -- venture in Afghanistan was all about and we fall for a forgotten now that nation building and little girls going to school in the horrors of the Talabani.
And America's exhausted it's tired it's broke.
You can feel it in the reporting you can feel it in the a lot of reporting remember -- lap relatively -- remember people who are covering an ongoing more cash and the administration wants out and and the death of Osama bin Laden has even and he administration in the excuse that it -- looking for.
It'll be a lot of the American people want because most people don't see the investment in Afghanistan is one that really don't -- American entries at a time of such extraordinary.

Their Iraqi insurgents or who who -- there.
With new high tech weapons that can penetrate and all of our.
Armored vehicles -- in terms.
That -- that also got Joseph little attention.
I yes I would imagine I would send an Iraq last year an Al Anbar Province where there aren't remainder is is the insurgency who whenever it was quite sure who was using these things that these are.
Copper plates DN SI isn't it a frozen chicken pot pie better able to penetrate.
-- the toughest.
And -- you know and he is heavily armored convoy is such as vehicles that the Americans go around the end and they only at that point the only two.
On milling plants that we're had been identified were both an Iranian territory so this is killing Americans it's it's -- for the very high -- three Americans in June and even -- that story has gotten much less attention than it would have because as you know we are on our way out of Iraq.
And so it's very hard to get people focused on and I Iraq.
I don't war we are has declared over and finally ends -- finally victorious and it's -- -- the ongoing war in Afghanistan when you have you know Derek Jeter and adding to the deficit -- at home.
-- -- -- We saw those are quite desperate time is a -- but the deficit deal an ardent -- -- tomorrow.
Ominous doesn't -- -- it's important that the media out and they had a -- -- -- treasure those kind of combining to sort of say.
It's it's over in Iraq it is ending in Afghanistan.
