There is mourning in Pakistan over Mr. Holbrooke, the man who groomed Washington’s stooges in Islamabad and Kabul. Mr. Zardari beat them all by awarding the deceased Pakistan’s highest civilian honor. In Pakistani history, Mr. Holbrooke is definitely not a hero.
This story shows how India is a large country with the mindset of a mouse. It demonstrates how Indian spy agents spend hours dissecting a public website of the Pakistan Army. In this case, an Indian intelligence officer analyzing the names of Pakistani martyrs posted on Pakistan Army’s official website thought he ‘discovered’ something. He shared it with Indian Army chief. Now all major Indian newspapers are celebrating this discovery. Amazingly, one of the official websites of President Zardari’s PPPP is also joining Indian celebrations. Here, a Pakistani website, Brasstacks.pk, shows how the Indian military might have been taken for a ride by incompetent intelligence officers.
All of them deserve 21 gun salutes for being in their late 60s and 70s with hardly any level of energy left in them but still obsessed with the self-exaggerated notion that they are the only ones who can lead this brave nation out of crises. What happened to us? Can’t we produce new faces?
If Pakistani politicians fail to build consensus, will they agree then on the need to step aside, spare us their chaotic politics, and let the rest of us force changes into the system to allow new thinking and new faces?
NRO And Musharraf’s Apology
With Mr. Musharraf’s apology to the nation for issuing the black law known as NRO, which primarily legalized the illegal wealth of President Zardari and his late wife, everyone in Pakistani politics should come clean on this law, starting with the members of the ruling PPPP themselves. It is unethical to hide behind the law of immunity.
The paranoid elected government of President Asif Zardari has been out battling shadows and ghosts, whipping up anti-military sentiment when the military never planned a coup of any sort against him. His problems are with the Supreme Court on legal grounds. To calm frayed nerves, it appears Gen. Kayani agreed to let Zardari and Gilani issue a statement on the three’s commitment to ‘defending’ democracy. Pakistani military could also be bound by ’sovereign guarantees’ given as back as 2007 stating that Pakistani military won’t destabilize a government created through the US-sponsored NRO deal.
Former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney confirms Ambassador Husain Haqqani denied her visa to come to Islambabad where she wanted to share important information regarding Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s case with the Pakistani government. This strengthens British journalist Evonne Ridley’s accusations that Amb. Haqqani has been scuttling Dr. Siddiqui’s case behind the scenes.
He came. He chose to escape. He can’t be trusted again.
While Mr. Altaf Hussain weeps over Dr. Imran Farooq and MQM officials throng the house of the murdered man’s parents in Karachi, no one is asking why MQM is keeping Farooq’s family under what looks like a house arrest in Karachi? Why Imran Farooq’s parents, brothers, sisters are not allowed to come on TV and give a statement? Welcome to another chapter in Karachi’s unfortunate political gang war.
[In Urdu] All major Pakistani political parties have militant wings armed with banned weapons. The present elected govt has issued close to 40,000 banned weapon permits in less than two years. AQ talks to party workers to show Pakistanis one more hidden aspect of Pakistans failed political system: an armed democracy monopolized by a few [...]
A Smart Coup: Why One Last Military Intervention In Pakistan Remains A Possibility
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—If it comes to a military-led intervention, both military officers and politicians will have to stay out of actual power. The army chief may not become a chief executive. The military might have to look into a new concept called the ‘Smart Coup’, where the military can bring capable Pakistanis to power with a firm executable plan of reform over five years, or more, fully backed by the military. There may not be time to put the plan to vote. It will have to be implemented. This would be the absolute last option. But we are nowhere near that right now. Gen. Kayani certainly has no such thing in mind according to people who have met him.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
CIA Supporting Terror Inside Pakistan
The proof about instances of covert US support to some hardened militant outfits and terrorist activities they carried out over the past few weeks and months, was presented to Panetta. It was indeed a startling revelation for the top US spy and a bold maneuver of Pakistan Army. General Pasha’s move surprised Panetta as the evidence presented was categorical in proving that the CIA officials provide assistance to perpetrators of some of the most serious and deadly attacks on offices and key persons in Pakistan’s security services. Here are the details of what transpired between ISI’s Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha and CIA’s Leon Panetta.
