Asma Jehangir’s Pathetic Attempt To Get Haqqani Off The Hook

She filed a “concise statement” pleading “the court to dismiss Sharif’s plea with costs being beyond the scope of Article 184(3) of the Constitution, which mandates the apex court to only take up matters of public importance requiring enforcement of fundamental rights.” Goes on to add crap like “matters relating to the working of ISI might come up for discussion in the US or the UK courts” so asks the court to not proceed in the case “purely out of national interest”. Did I smell a threat in there? She continues with it telling the SC that if  you proceed, we will get foreign courts to proceed with defamation hearings which will expose the workings of the ISI, there by attacking national interest and gain for it “adverse (foreign) media attention which would tarnish the image of the country.”

That this is a trick to try and save his skin was admitted by Haqqani himself who reportedly said “he would use every legal tool available to him to defend himself”. 😉

‘Uloo Ki Pathee!!!’ 🙂

A Quickie: Kiyani Gets His Contract Renewed

From US renews bonds with Pak Army this about says it all:

“Partly that’s because the military in Pakistan is a can-do institution, much more so than the civilians,” she said. “This is partly theatrics, but we as a people are magnetically drawn to an institution and a leader who says, ‘Yeah, I can help you with what you really want to get done,’” she said.

What sort of a “LEADER” says “I will follow any order you give me”?

Kiyani: "Boss, Don't I look good in that shiny uniform? I polished it myself!"

US understates civilian casualties in Pakistan, makes no amends
Kiyani: “Hey, they apologized for the three dead soldiers. What more do you want, you bloody civies! >:-$ “

Pakistani victims of U.S. drone strikes speak out in a new report on increasing civilian casualties in the region

Kiyani: “Oh, hogwash! Here’s a study that proves Majority of Pakistanis see US drone attacks “as their liberator”

And speaking of the $2 Billion AIDS infection:
This is less than what Pakistan has already spent: Gilani
Kiyani: “Well the generals and me and not getting short-changed and our Swiss accounts payments are never delayed so who cares? (And why would we care who pays us as long as we get paid in full and in $$$…”

Price of old F-16s, Cobra raised, says Mukhtar
Kiyani: “But if they charged us the right price it would cut into our commissions. We work these contracts on fixed percentages, not fixed amounts.”

P.S. This is not directly related but isn’t this an admission that politically appointed ambassadors (the timing certainly points to Haqqani) are not working for our interests?
No more political ambassadors: PM
AND why not add ‘political ambassadors to be removed with immediate effect’?? If the appointments so far are mistakes, why not correct it??
