I just sat down with the Pakistani Ambassador the United Nations, Abdullah Hussain Haroon.  I asked Amb. Haroon to respond to Obama’s Cairo speech and to the news that Hafiz Saeed, the leader of a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda, was released from house arrest in Pakistan today.  We later discuss the humanitarian crisis in the Swat valley and the expansion of the Afghanistan conflict to Pakistan. 

Note: The audio and video are slightly out of sync.  We are working to get this corrected. However, in the interest of expediency and the fact that the Ambassador is responding to breaking news we wanted to post this raw video as soon as possible.
