John Kerry, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is the first American emissary to visit Pakistan since the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. He is known to be a friend of Pakistan, and what he is told by Pakistani army and civilian leaders could be key to American policy going forward. Kerry arrived late Sunday and went quickly to see army chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, handing him the list of U.S. demands.
