Perhaps one problem with Pakistan is that, when it comes to recruiting the country's best and brightest, it competes with terrorist organizations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (based on a 56-page study by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point). And no wonder LeT is doing well. They exist with ISI's blessing and, according to this report, nearly 100% of young Pakistanis believe their country is going in the wrong direction. One of its potential leaders is adopting an Obama-style campaign strategy, but none have served with distinction (that I could see) since the nation's inception. Despite claims to the contrary, there have been no Mandelas in their history. Past and current leadership both tacitly and cynically allow drone strikes, and their constitution games the electoral system to favor the more radical elements. What could go wrong?
