When Pakistan's prime minister, Nawaz Sharif
, visits the White House tomorrow, he may find President Barack Obama
on the defensive. A new report from Amnesty International alleges that some U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan may amount to war crimes.
But Obama could respond to Sharif by citing another report, this one in the form a soon-to-be-released book by Pakistan's former ambassador to the U.S., Husain Haqqani
, who states plainly that his government sponsors the terrorist groups whose members are often the targets of American drones.
