CSPC President David M. Abshire Quoted in AP Article on Aid to Pakistan

Yesterday, CSPC President David M. Abshire appeared in an Associated Press article (found here) by Robert Burns titled "US stresses aid to Pakistan, eyeing improved image."  Below is an excerpt from the article:

David Abshire, a retired U.S. ambassador who is president of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, said in an interview  that Obama's Afghanistan-Pakistan policy needs help.

"I don't think we have a firm anchor at the end of our policy," Abshire said, adding that Obama's decision last December to send an extra 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan has wide support, but many are uncertain what steps following the troop surge will be needed."
