Obama mulls Clinton as special envoy on Kashmir-USA-World-The Times of India


Obama mulls Clinton as special envoy on Kashmir-USA-World-The Times of India

India of 2008-2009 is a more confident and assertive country from what it was for much of the 1990s when the last Democratic administration of Bill Clinton hectored New Delhi about signing the nuclear test ban treaty and questioned the Indian narrative on Kashmir’s status, even going to the extent of doubting the state’s accession to the Indian union.

All that changed with the Kargil episode, when Washington finally recognized Islamabad as the serial aggressor intent on changing the status quo. Faced with a military rout, Pakistan rushed to Washington to effect a face-saving withdrawal from its misadventure that eventually changed US outlook in the region.

Now President-elect Obama has indicated he is considering appointing Clinton as a special envoy on Kashmir.

How much is Obama his own man … who owns Obama …

Stephen Cohen, an ‘India expert’ thinks that Bill Clinton is being sent to the sub-continent because Obama wants Clinton out of the USA.
