chairman of the committee, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, expressed doubt about the administration’s plan, which puts much more emphasis on working with Pakistan to help it solve its own insurgency problems and close the porous border.

The proposed law would make it illegal for women of the country’s Shia minority to deny sex to their husbands, or leave their houses without his permission.
That is a political explosion just waiting to happen.
