Command Post Episode Five: "The Challenge of Pakistan"

When it comes to fingering trouble spots in the arc of crisis that springs from the Middle East and ranges west to Libya and east to India, No. 1 -- with a bullet -- is invariably Pakistan. It's a vexing stew of tribal rivalries, economic stresses, religious hatreds and a perpetual war alert -- perhaps including nuclear war -- against neighboring India. So we wrap up up the first week of Command Post with a deeper look into the challenge it poses. Thanks for watching!
