A very good point made by the author. This is the point that Indian politicians must make to US, either fight terrorism or support PA. US cant do both. US is effectively funding the terrorism against India and our interests abroad. Why does GOI never raise this issue with US(even though its an open secret)? Instead, our PM issues ridiculous statements like 'India and Pakistan are both victims of terrorism', effectively rubbishing the Indian case that Pakistan State is sponsoring terrorism against India.America's Favorite Rogue State

Is it time to cut off aid to Pakistan?
..............in any event, it's time we stop funding terrorism against India. The United States, through its assistance programs, effectively enabled Pakistan's ISI to mastermind the Indian embassy bombing last July, and it's almost certain our money was used for the attack this week. At some point, we have to accept responsibility for the consequences of our decisions.
We can fight terrorism or we can support the Pakistani military. History says we cannot do both.
