11:00 Analysis of Pakistan Papers from home news outlet, Dawn Media. "If there is a theme as such in the 4,000-plus cables read by Dawn, it is the unparalleled access Americans enjoy in Pakistan. Hardly surprising, though it is something else to see it in black and white, over and over again, in cable after cable. The political class is seen perennially knocking on the doors of American officials to share information and vie for support.
"And American officials appear to have open-door access at the highest echelons of political and military power in the country."
