About the Program
From The Half King in New York City, Carlotta Gall and Willem Marx talk about Pakistan and the border area between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. In her book, "The Wrong Enemy," Carlotta Gall argues that following 9/11, the U.S. should have focused on Pakistan instead of Afghanistan. She says that the Afghans have paid a heavy price for Pakistan's treachery. Willem Marx talks about the border region between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran - an area called Balochistan - and the civil conflict that is happening there.
Carlotta Gall has worked for the New York Times since 1999 and has covered Pakistan and Afghanistan for over 10 years. She is currently the North Africa correspondent for the paper.
Willem Marx, a correspondent for Bloomberg TV, has reported from 40 countries around the world for such outlets as the Financial Times, ABC News, and Al Jazeera English. For more, visit: willemmarx.com.
