Charged with the task of fixing the United States’ frayed relationship with Pakistan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Islamabad early Sunday morning as part of a trip through Asia that will also include stops in Afghanistan, South Korea, and Vietnam. The U.S. is deeply unpopular in Pakistan, where American drone operations serve as a constant reminder of their adversarial relationship. "There was a huge trust gap," said Vali Nasr, a senior adviser to Richard Holbrooke, the special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. "We are not going to be able to change their foreign policy on a dime.” Outside of military concerns, Clinton will also discuss American plans to spend billions of dollars on a series of social and economic improvements in Pakistan’s notoriously fraught tribal region.
