I interviewed The Atlantic’s Robert Kaplan about the terror attack in Lahore yesterday, and his grim assessment of the ISI-Taliban ties is the title of the post. The transcript of the conversation is here.

A detailed account of yesterday’s terrorist attack in Lahore is posted at The Long War Journal.
