Having not done any noticeable damage in Afghanistan, Biden moves on the Pakistan. Here’s a sample of one of the pool reports:
After meeting with the U.S. ambassador and other American officials at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Vice President Biden left the diplomatic enclave at 1:19 pm local time. Motorcade rolled through cleared streets and arrived at the presidential palace at 1:25 pm. Pool was allowed in for a photo spray of Biden and Pakistani President Zardari.
The two sat in chairs and made small talk as cameras rolled. American and Pakistani officials sat in chairs opposite one another. When the press arrived, Biden said to Zardari: “We should act like we know each other.” He added: “I’ve known the president long enough that I used to have hair.” Zardari: “Is he making fun of me?” Biden laughed and ran a hand over his thinning hair. Looking at one of the Pakistani officials, he said: “What are you laughing about?”
We were ushered out after one minute. On the wall was a picture of the slain Pakastan president, Benazir Bhutto.
