I wonder how many Americans are there in Pakistan.

WASHINGTON: The US has warned its citizens to defer non-essential travel to Pakistan due to a threat posed by foreign and local militants throughout the country.

The US continues to provide consular services for all its citizens in Pakistan, Geo news reported a statement from the state department.

"The US consulate general in Peshawar no longer offers consular services and the US consulate general in Lahore remains temporarily closed for public services," added the statement.

Travel warnings have also been issued for Americans in Saudi Arabia and Algeria.

And yet, according to John Kerry today, the world is the safest it has ever been in human history.

Kind of a given, isn't it? Does anyone with a brain think it's safe for an American citizen to go to Afghanistan or any other country in the M.E. (with the possible exception of Isreal)?

And even that is questionable. A friend of mine went there late last year and left just before all hell broke loose.
