“The Pakistanis must be held accountable for delaying U.S. personnel who are working to protect American troops and contribute to stability in the region,” Casey said in a statement. “This is unacceptable and certainly deserves closer scrutiny. Roadside bombs have killed far too many Pennsylvania troops and no efforts to counter these deadly devices should be spared.”

The report goes on to point out that Pakistan developed a National Counter-IED Strategy in June 2011 but has yet to finalize an implementation plan for carrying out the strategy.
