Pakistan’s President Asif Al Zardari is meeting with Obama at the WH today to discuss his efforts to root out extremism inside Pakistan.  If you’re looking for more background on  Zardari, read “Can Pakistan Be Governed?”  It ran in the NYT Magazine a little over a month ago and provides a good history on the volatile nature of the Pakistani government and how little support Zardari has there.
