Aryn Baker joined me again today on WLS/Chicago. She’s the Time magazine correspondent who’s been writing about the advance of the Taliban in Pakistan.

I asked her why the government was so impotent in fighting the Taliban, whether this is about fundamentalism or simply a power grab, and how the Taliban is taking over the country one town at a time. Since Pakistan is a nuclear nation with a fragile government, we also discussed the threat to the world of a country that’s falling apart, and what the US and other western countries can do about it.
