David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, joins Kerry Nolan to discuss Sen. John Kerry's visit to Pakistan and the arrest of the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Senator Kerry arrived in Islamabad Sunday night with a list of "specific demands" from the Obama administration. The United States is calling on Pakistan to address whether and to what extent it has been harboring Islamic militants. Meanwhile, in New York City, prominent French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested over the weekend for an alleged sexual assault on a hotel maid.

In this week's Washington report, Sanger weighs in on what message Kerry is delivering to Pakistani officials and what Strauss-Kahn's arrest means for Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and other countries that are currently being helped by the IMF.
