WASHINGTON - With Pakistan struggling to stop the advancing Taliban in their tracks, the Obama administration has revised its planned Afghanistan-Pakistan strategy, according to a media report. What was planned as a step-by-step process of greater military and economic engagement with Pakistan - as immediate attention focused on Afghanistan - has been rapidly overtaken by the worsening situation on the ground, The Washington Post said in a dispatch on Wednesday. Discussions over the past two days included a White House meeting Monday between Obama and senior national security officials and a full National Security Council session on Pakistan on Tuesday. A tripartite summit, Obama will host here next week with President Asif Zardari and his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai, will centre heavily on the Pakistan problem rather than the balance originally intended, officials said. New consideration is being given to a long-dormant proposal to allow US counterinsurgency training for Pakistani troops somewhere outside the country, circumventing Pakistans refusal to allow American boots on the ground there. On Capitol Hill, anxious lawmakers proposed breaking $400 million out of the administrations pending $83 billion supplemental spending request in order to fund immediate counterinsurgency and economic assistance to Pakistan. We could pass it really quickly, in just a matter of days, said Republican Senator Jon Kyl. Waiting for debate and approval of the entire supplemental, Kyl said, could be too little, too late. Certainly, we are discussing with the administration what is needed, and I think that all of us are very concerned about whats happening in Pakistan, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer told reporters. The administration shares that concern, even as it is struggling to retain control of its own policy and its full spending request, including money for the Iraq and Afghan wars and other issues. Our position is that if, in fact, some money would be able to be fast-tracked so that we could get started earlier [in Pakistan], given the urgency of the situation, thats a good idea, senior administration official said. But we wouldnt want to do anything to jeopardise the rest of the supplemental. We do not support anything that derails that, he added. The administration officials said they were hopeful that some provision could be agreed on to make funds more quickly available for Pakistan.
