Remarks
Richard Holbrooke
Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan
Islamabad, Pakistan
July 22, 2009



Because we understand the point you made and we want to be sure that we share with your government and your military the military plans so you can be prepared and coordinate. Because a lot of different things can happen here. The Taliban could move east into Baluchistan and cause additional problems. They could move west towards Herat. They could be trapped and we have to be prepared--that's what military planning is about and that's what allies should do.
