      U.S., Pakistan held different views of Nazir

      On Thursday, a U.S. drone strike in the South Waziristan region of Pakistan killed a top Taliban commander. U.S. officials say Maulvi Nazir sent money and fighters to battle coalition forces in Afghanistan.

      The Pentagon says -- if true -- Nazir's death would be a significant blow to extremism in Pakistan.

      Retired Navy Commander J.D. Gordon discussed that and other defense issues on Capital Insider.
