Al Jazeera reports on the visit of Lt. Gen. Zahir ul-Islam, the head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence directorate, to the United States.

The New York Times profiles the Pakistani spy chief, and includes speculation about his meeting with CIA Director David H. Petraeus:

Relations between Pakistani and American spies reached a low point in the past year after a series of contentious episodes, including the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the shooting of two Pakistanis by a C.I.A. contractor, Raymond A. Davis, and continuing accusations that the ISI is shielding Islamist militants.From Wednesday, Mr. Petraeus and General Islam will seek to rebuild a counterterrorism relationship that has severely frayed, Pakistani and American officials said.

“Petraeus will try to forge a relationship with him,” one senior Obama administration official said. “We’ve got business to do. Let’s get on with it.”
