        Several senior U.S. officials have warned that Washington may cut financial aid and security assistance to Pakistan if it continues to offer safe havens to terrorist elements. However, critics would argue that if the U.S. reduces aid to Pakistan, they would barely notice. Islamabad’s dependence on American aid has declined in recent years.   The label itself is somewhat misleading, since the U.S. is not formally obliged to defend all of its “major non-NATO allies.” Giving these countries this status won’t mean that the U.S.
