Steve Coll interviewd by Wajahat Ali

And here is another interview

Associate editor Wajahat Ali speaks to Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Steve Coll on the recent Pakistan elections, the future for President Musharraf, and life in the Northwest Frontier Province.

Pakistan's recent elections have highlighted the many facets of political and social life in that troubled country. From the urban areas of Karachi and Lahore to the tribal areas of the Northwest Frontier Provinces, Pakistan is a study in contradictions and a microcosm for the trials and tribulations of the Muslim world. But what will happen now in a post-Bhutto (and potentially post-Musharraf) country? Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001 has spent many years reporting from Pakistan, serving as the South Asia bureau chief of the Washington Post and is currently the director of the New America Foundation. Associate editor Wajahat Ali spoke to Coll on the recent Pakistan elections, the Taliban, Osama Bin Laden, and the inescapable influence of US foreign policy.
