Former Ambassador Explores Fraught Relationship Between U.S., Pakistan By Charles Stam

Introduction • Charles Maurice Stam studied history and political science at Columbia University. Currently an analyst in New York, Charles M. Stam received a fellowship with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress.

About "Magnificent Delusions: Pakistan, the United States, and an Epic History of Misunderstanding." • In late 2013, Husain Haqqani released a 432-page book entitled "Magnificent Delusions: Pakistan, the United States, and an Epic History of Misunderstanding." Pakistan's ambassador to the United States from 2008 to 2011, Haqqani now directs the Center of International Relations at Boston University. In "Magnificent Delusions," he draws upon his experience as ambassador to shed light on the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan, arguing that each country has continually believed that it can play the other.

Conclusion • Taking a historical approach, he outlines the shifting tensions between the two countries that have persisted since before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. He argues that perhaps the greatest delusion that both countries fall prey to is that they can truly consider each other allies.
