US apologizes for airstrike; Pakistan supply lines reopen
Earlier this week, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologized to Pakistan for the deaths of two dozen Pakistani soldiers after a cross-border engagement near Afghanistan's Kunar province and Pakistan's Mohmand tribal agency on Nov. 26, 2011. The apology is interpreted as a factor for the recent reopening of US supply routes through Pakistan. An analyst with the Wall Street Journal NewsHub reviews the cost savings and politics surrounding the reestablishment of the supply lines prior to US withdrawal.
