Center for a New American Security’s Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel C. Fick testified July 7, 2009, at a congressional hearing on U.S.-Pakistan relations. The hearing has been called by Sen. Tom Carper, D-DE, chairman of a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
At the hearing, Fick – along with other expert witnesses – will assess the challenges and opportunities to implementing the Obama Administration’s strategy toward Pakistan. Fick is the co-author of the recently-released CNAS report Triage: The Next 12 Months in Afghanistan and Pakistan, which argues for increased U.S. efforts to strengthen Pakistani government institutions and security forces in order to prevent further deterioration of security in the country.
