Thought you might be interested in the latest on Pakistan from AEI's Ahmad Majidyar.
In "Hiding in Plain Sight" on ForeignPolicy.com, Majidyar explains how combating terrorists in Pakistan's borderlands has been hard enough, but an even greater threat would be if they are able to take over the country’s most populous province, Punjab.

More on the growth of terrorist activity in Pakistan's Punjab province is available in the latest AEI Middle Eastern Outlook "Could the Taliban Take Over Pakistan's Punjab Province?" also by Majidyar. In this Outlook, he describes how under increasing pressure from U.S. drone attacks and the Pakistani Army's continuing offensives in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), the Taliban and al Qaeda are looking to Punjab, Pakistan’s political and military heartland, for refuge, revenge, and new alliances.
