Pakistan plans to unleash a new anti-terrorist strategy within two weeks in the violent commercial capital Karachi, said a senior advisor to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif hours after Sharif met President Obama at the White House Wednesday.
As President Obama and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif meet in Washington today, American officials have struck a positive tone ahead of their talks.
Thirteen years after world leaders committed to providing access to education to all primary-school-aged children by 2015, there are more than 57 million boys and girls out of school. Immediate action is needed, or there could be irreparable consequences.
The reality is that when it comes to the science of flying death robots, the United States is the world leader. Our drone systems may not be 100 percent perfect, but they rarely fail. When it comes to killing people remotely from the air, nobody does it better. Technologically, that is. Morally, it's a different story.
By the grace of God, Malala survived, where many others have not. And she has emerged even more powerful, with a commitment to help girls worldwide to receive an education through MalalaFund.org.
I admire and respect Malala's journey. But this level of Western applause, this tendency to over-celebrate anybody from the East is all too familiar. It makes it clearer than ever that Yousufzai polarizes her global audience.

Sixteen-year-old Malala has inspired not only children in her own country, but adults all around the world. It would be hard for her to return to Pakistan -- where there's current controversy even surrounding naming a school after her.
Rather, is it not time to stop victimizing ourselves further and take her story to stand for something that is larger than our self-pitying mentalities?
What's needed is an inclusive, political settlement -- with all stakeholders included -- that ends the fighting and stops the region from meddling, something we missed the mark on years ago. Until we do that, any Afghan security deal will remain elusive.
More than your story or Jeremy's story, Dirty Wars is the story of thousands of nameless and voiceless men, women and children.
Oliver Stone, Cenk Uygur, Tom Morello, Henry Rollins, and Shepard Fairey -- all progressive heroes and leading forces in their field -- have lent their voices in praising our upcoming investigative documentary Unmanned: America's Drone Wars.
It has been rare, certainly in recent times, that someone from my home country, Pakistan, has become a household name for courage, dignity and passion for a worthy cause. Yet Malala Yousafzai has done exactly that.
What seemed inconceivable a decade ago -- the integration of the Taliban into Afghanistan's post-9/11 political process -- appears not only possible today, but probable.
Great story, right? And what could be wrong about the alleged 'overexposure' of a young girl expressing words of peace and fighting for girls' education against a religious patriarchy? Apparently a lot.
In Malala's recent interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, she discussed how she would respond to a Taliban assassin. Her answer left Stewart speechless.
