In today’s episode of the Tribune Take, we take a look at the United States rejection of the findings of a Pakistani report into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) air strikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Gulraiz Khan, Senior Sub-editor at The Express Tribune, says such military reports are made for public consumption and jingoism. In actuality, he says Pakistan has made its point by blocking NATO supply routes for almost two months now, and asserting their sovereignty ten years into the war.
Khan says the current government, though, holds enough of a majority in the parliament to restart the flow of NATO supplies soon.
