Pakistan President Believed 'US Behind Taliban Attacks
« on: October 14, 2010, 10:55:03 AM »
The elites sic their suklings, pac mans, on whosoever may be of assistance, we must face the facts.

Source ICH,article 26583.
Portion:
Woodward's account goes like this: "One evening during the trilateral summit (in Washington, between Obama, Karzai and Zardari) Zardari had dinner with Zalmay Khalilzad, the 58-year-old former US ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq and the UN, during the Bush presidency.

"Zardari dropped his diplomatic guard. He suggested that one of the two countries was arranging the attacks by the Pakistani Taliban inside his country: India or the US. Zardari didn't think India could be that clever, but the US could. Karzai had told him the US was behind the attacks, confirming the claims made by the Pakistani ISI."

"Mr President," Khalilzad said, "what would we gain from doing this? You explain the logic to me."

"This was a plot to destabilize Pakistan, Zardari hypothesized, so that the US could invade and seize its nuclear weapons. He could not explain the rapid expansion in violence otherwise. And the CIA had not pursued the leaders of the Pakistani Taliban, a group known as Tehrik-e-Taliban-e-Pakistan or TTP that had attacked the government. TTP was also blamed for the assassination of Zardari's wife, Benazir Bhutto."

  The elites are insane to try and invade Pakistan.  They have a pattern don't they? First Iraq, then Afghanistan and now Pakistan and Iran.  If they weren't insane they would bring the troops home and start creating jobs.  BUT THEY ARE INSANE.
I'M A DEPLORABLE KNUCKLEHEAD THAT SUPPORTS PRESIDENT TRUMP.  MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE.

Wow, Zardari is actually saying that.  That is pretty strong confirmation of the realistic nature of this threat.

Good find, Chris.

We know the ISI which was half-funded by the CIA was involved in setting up the Taliban, too, BUT it looks like once again the U.S. gov't and CIA are going to double deal on one of their former allies -- like Noriega and Hussein.

This is their typical fu%#-your-buddy M.O.

I think they played too much "Diplomacy" when they were kids.

They just never got it out of their system.  That is the way they think.

All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Police: Plot to kill Pakistan PM uncovered

By Frederik Pleitgen, CNN
October 14, 2010 -- Updated 1629 GMT (0029 HKT)
 
Several suspects were arrested over an alleged plot to attack Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani's compound.
STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Several people have been arrested in Punjabi city
A North Waziristan militant orchestrated the plot, suspects say
The plot was in its "final planning stages"

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Several people have been seized in a plot to kill Pakistan's prime minister, and the suspects claim they were getting orders from a militant in the country's volatile tribal region, police said.

Police official Babar Bakhat Qureshi told CNN that officers arrested several suspects who were plotting to attack the compound of Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.

Shabir Anwar, Gilani's press secretary, had no comment on the alleged plot because it is a security matter.

The plot to strike the compound, located in the Punjab provincial city of Multan, was in its "final planning stages," Qureshi said. The location is about 395 kilometers, or 245 miles, southeast of the nation's capital, Islamabad.

3. A more stringent policy vis--vis countries who in one form or another help terrorist groups, including countries, such as Pakistan, which do not have an openly hostile attitude towards the United States.

And yet a "more stringent" policy may be an excellent way to make an enemy of an old friend.

Completely asinine, unless that is eactly what you want to do.
