US South Asia Policy - An Inside Look
Editorial Team
Another comment by Ambassador Platt revealed the bankruptcy of US policy in South Asia. He proudly proclaimed that "the United States was right in the middle between India and Pakistan, which is where it should be". Perhaps he missed the irony that the world's champion of democracy was equating the world's largest democracy with the world's worst terrorist sponsor and nuclear proliferator.....More...

Footprints of Terror
Ajai Sahni

On March 1, 2003, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, one of the prime planners of the 9/11 attacks on the US, was arrested in Rawalpindi. The US authorities had been pursuing him at least since his 1995 involvement in the abortive 'Operation Bojinka' conspiracy to simultaneously blow up 12 American civilian airliners over the Pacific, in which he collaborated with his relative, Ramzi Yousef, who is currently serving a life sentence in America for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Centre.........More...

APHC: The Nexus with Terror
Praveen Swami

It has been evident, for years, that the jihad in Jammu and Kashmir is an instrument of Pakistan's state policy. Just how well structured the links between the institutions of the Pakistani state and terrorism in India are, however, is only just beginning to become clear.....More...
