Economic lifeline to Pakistan, pipeline puts U.S. in a bind

LAHORE, Pakistan -- Looms whir and rattle as Aamir Fayyaz Sheikh shows off the intricately woven fabrics that his textile mill, one of Pakistan's largest, produces. The weaving and drying and bleaching, the washing, the winding and the chemical treating at Kohinoor Mills -- all of it needs energy. Lots of it. But in a country where daily blackouts are the norm, Fayyaz said he can't depend on his government to ensure he has a reliable supply of electricity to keep 1,500 people employed and get his clothing to places like Gap and Old Navy.
