Two senior Taliban leaders arrested

Taliban leaderAs U.S. and Pakistani intelligence agents press their offensive, two senior Taliban leaders have been arrested in Pakistan.  International relations Prof. Charles Dunbar, who once headed the U.S. embassy in Kabul during his four-decade diplomatic career, says the arrests indicate that the Pakistan government may be inclined to help the U.S. more on the war in Afghanistan — but only if the cooperation is genuine.

“The main take-away: Is the seeming Pakistani shift in attitude for real or just more of the same good-bedside-manner diplomacy vis a vis the U.S.?”
