Is Zardari History?

Remember the FRAUD Nawaz pulled to appear to not be a part of the rotten Raymond Davis affair? See:

and the followup discussion for all the details. That it was a fraud and that these fools cannot keep the story straight is obvious:

Shahbaz makes up a story…

And Nawaz admits it”s all b.s.:

It now appears their brother Zardari has taken a page from their playbook.

UPDATE: On second thought, I remember Zardari used the ‘bad heart’ excuse many times before to not come back to the country and to get away from his legal troubles:

In June 2005, he suffered a heart attack and was treated in the United Arab Emirates.[52][53] A PPP spokesman stated he underwent angioplasty in the United States.[53] In September 2005, he did not show up for a Rawalpindi hearing on corruption charges; the court issued an arrest warrant.[53] His lawyers stated he could not come because he was recovering from his treatment.[53] Following a request by the Rawalpindi court, Interpol issued a red notice in January 2006 against the couple which called on member nations to decide on the couple’s extradition.[54][55]

First it was reported that Zardari had a checkup done at the army hospital and was given an “all clear” certificate. Curious thing was, his spokesperson Farhatullah Babar and his bitch babar Awan strongly denied that any such check-up took place and that “Zardari had been busy in his office all day long.” Now why would you deny such a “good” thing? Probably because showing Zardari in good health goes against the plan.

So it is very interesting that the very next day, the healthy Zardari suddenly leaves for Dubai “for medical checkup”. That this too is a fraud is obvious from all the stories making the rounds. Here is how it is playing out so far:

Interesting, eh?

Another VERY CURIOUS fact is the person accompanying him:

Farahnaz Ispahani, wife of Husain Haqqani, who was a journalist and had worked at the State Department-run Voice of America before joining Pakistan’s murky politics, is said to be accompanying Zardari.

Remember that although no one has picked up on this fact, Haqqani’s wife Farahnaz was as much a party to Memogate as Hussain Haqqani and Zardari (see the transcript of the Mansoor Ijaz’s BBMs). Why would she be picked, of all the people? This to me is confirmation that the guilty ones are being allowed to take the money and run. So once again, all TRAITORS/thieves are allowed to get away with it. And you and I both know Haqqani will be allowed to follow his wife back to U.S. and back to his old job at Boston University to write the book he promised (“HH: You get to write the book on how you changed US-Pak dynamic and won the war in A’tan (w/ some help from a Paki nerd) 😀 …. HH: We’ll make things happen and if we can’t, we’ll write a book about it“).
Isn’t that treason itself at the hands of EVERYONE involved in letting this happen (including Kayani & Co. and Judiciary)?

The Last BBM:

While on the subject, here is a bit that worries me. Read the very last BBM released by Mansoor Ijaz:
MI: It’s interesting (and heartening) to see that many of the proposals made in the memo are now being implemented in the bilateral relationship. Very good. 
Now what do you make of it? Is he right that despite Memogate having been outed (remember this one is from from first week of November after news of Memogate broke), “proposals in the memo” were STILL “being implemented in the bilateral relationship”? Question is who’s implementing them and why no one, not even Kayani stopping them?
Here let me also put on my CT hat and ask was the “non-sensicle” NATO strike really all that non-sensicle? Remember what has been the “reaction” to it? That “all accords with Nato and U.S. will be reviewed“.  So I must ask:

Was the real purpose of the NATO strike to hurry along the implementation of the proposals made in Memogate? Was there a method to this madness???? IS THE REAL TREASON HAPPENING RIGHT NOW????

[BTW: Where is Mansoor ijaz? Could this trip be another of those secret meetings between Ijaz and Zardari to work out a deal between the two, you know, just like NRO between BB and Mush? Let’s see what follows. If Zardari comes back and Mansoor Ijaz throws him a fig leaf in the days to come, you’ll know!  If not then those stories about powers that be having decided to ditch Zardari were true. ;-)]

OMG! Ayaz Amir Must Be Doing Atiqa Odho…

How low can an old Fauji go? I was surprised to find top PPP apologist, former journalist, PML-N MNA Ayaz Amir on fire in the National Assembly, suddenly realizing “Ziaul Haq’s invasion on the social and cultural fabric of this vibrant society,” demanding “the Supreme judiciary to move on instead of browbeating an issue which stinks of Ziaul Haq’s tainted laws”.

But what was curious was his focusing in on the laws against consuming alcohol (Historical Note: Though Zia did in fact introduce some twisted “Islamic rules”, it was Z A Bhutto who banned alcohol; Note also that the party Mr. Ayaz Amir belongs to WAS created by Zia himself):

But what remained the highlight of today’s performance was the unique suggestion of the chairman of Senate’s standing committee on Finance and Revenue, Senator Ahmed Ali of MQM. Though till the very last moment it remained unclear whether he was supportive of Attiqa Odho or criticizing the judiciary for taking suo-motto notice of her carrying merely two bottles of banned beverages, yet he flabbergasted not only the committee members but also the chairman of FBR Salman Siddique by asking him that how much taxes state would be able to earn if ban on these hard beverages is lifted? Upon finding Salman shying away by just blushing and staring at his own files, Senator asked in more definitive and substantive terms that would it be over Rs 70 billion? Then Salman had to hesitatingly and in his inaudible tone say that may be more than that. (source)

 Yes friends, the sleeping lion (who slept through corruption and injustice of every possible kind for three years, in fact supporting those with the excuse used by every scoundrel that ‘Democracy must be protected at every cost”) jumped out of his slumber howling because Mushy’s chick and central-office bearer of his (Mushy’s) party Atiqa Odho got caught at the airport with two bottles of the good stuff and was let go which did not sit well with SC that demanded to investigate how she slipped away.

That can ONLY MEAN ONE THING: Ayaz Amir is banging the old hag. Simply, there can be no other explanation for it and everyone can see through this (see suggestion of Senator Ahmed Ali abouve).

That Ayaz himself realized that he had dropped his pants in public is clear from his backtracking (“what I meant was….”)

Too late, Ayaz! The cat is out of the bag 😉

Follow-Up: Debbie Does Dallas But Arif Nizami Does Sheikh, Tarin, WB, IMF, and ALL Bankers

Remember Debbie Does Dallas But Arif Nizami Does Sheikh, Tarin, WB, IMF, and ALL Bankers?

Well, that filthy act has paid big dividends for Arif Nizami and his masters — surprised it’s a banker? — have given him a new porno rag to spread his filth. The paper is named Pakistan Today which launched recently and is financed by “Mian Muhammad Mansha of MCB, Izzat Majid and a few others”. The group is, curiously, named Nawa Media (same folks as Nawa-i-Waqt group from which he got fired? Remember that too is a very pro-Nawaz group and Mian Mansha did get to steal Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB) courtesy of Nawaz Sharif. Dont know who this Izzat majid fella is but found this short description: “Izzat Majeed, Lahore’s London-based millionaire, philanthropist and patron of the arts.” Hmmm, gotta be a crook 😉 And this article about him certainly tells a lot. Will look him up, time permitting).

False Flag: Data Darbar Suicide Bombing

You decide…

Timeline:

June 19: Pak lets Saeed rail again; upset India protests

June 25: Pakistan To “Satisfy” India Over Hafiz Saeed Issue

Islamabad, Pakistan (AHN) – Just hours before meeting his Indian counterpart on Friday, Pakistan’s Interior Minister said he would seek to “satisfy” India’s home minister about his government’s intentions regarding Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks in 2008.

Talking of his scheduled meeting with P. Chidambaram on the sidelines of an international meeting of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), Rehman Malik said that “instead of exchanging dossiers,” the traditional rivals should “exchange hearts.”

June 26: Pak should act against Saeed: Chidambaram

June 27: Chidambaram very intelligent, Pakistani minister tweets (‘Look! Rehman Malik Is Kissing Our Hindu @ss’)

Surprise! Surprise:

July 02: Suicide attack on Data Darbar

July 02: Nawaz links terrorism with foreign policy

July 03: Gilani, Nawaz agree to convene APC on Terrorism

July 05: (Useless) Ulema unite to assail Data Darbar attack

July 05: JuD a terror outfit, admits Pakistan

Update:

July 07: US wants military action in NWA

Meanwhile, using this as cover, guess what Nawaz/Sharifs are up to:

Speaking of PML-N, here is a (another) recent example of their dual-faced role:

Foxes Guarding The Henhouse

Two scams exposed by today’s papers:
I.

Govt loses Rs30 billion: Rehman Malik reaps ‘grey’ calls windfall

"Reach out and touch someone!"

ISLAMABAD, June 14: The government is facing an estimated annual revenue loss of over Rs 30 billion on account of ‘grey telephony’ under which international calls are re-routed through local — often illegal — exchanges to avoid local taxes, mainly because of policies designed apparently to favour a sitting powerful minister.

One of the leading beneficiaries of the grey traffic is Rodcom Europe, now being renamed as Hollywell Solutions. Rehman Malik, the sitting interior minister, is the chairman of London-based Rodcom Europe — a specialised VOIP (voice-over internet protocol) company established in 2001 “offering a limited number of high quality routes to a limited number of high quality customers”, according to the company website.

It says its early destinations were mainly to Europe and “Pakistan soon joined them when VOIP licences were first issued in 2003”. Rodcom’s activities in Pakistan, the website claimed, “have grown to a level where we are now one of the top five senders of Pakistan calls in Europe
[So RM got this favor from Musharraf]

Regardless of whether or not Rodcom is operating legally, Rehman Malik’s ownership of the company raises moral and ethical questions. “That a federal minister who oversees law enforcement agencies which are required to curb such illegal telephone calls, should own a company involved in this business is clearly a conflict of interest,” an observer said.
[Another example of fox guarding the hen house]

What makes the conflict of interest issue more serious is the fact that the current government has not made a concerted effort to eliminate the grey traffic; instead circumstantial evidence suggests that official policies have encouraged such activity.

HOW GREY TRAFFIC RUNS: Grey traffic is defined as the use of illegal exchanges for making international calls, bypassing the legal routes and exchanges. These illegal exchanges include VOIP (Voice-Over Internet Protocol) that uses a computer; GSM (Global System for Mobile) gateways; WLL (wireless local loop) phones or mobile SIMs. This traffic may then be distributed onwards using WLL and mobile numbers.

Why is PAC chief sitting on NLC scam report?
[Who is he protecting? Is his brother’s name in it? Or other Generals??]
Billions lost in adventure by uniformed men

Now you know WHY he is often caught secretly meeting Generals in the dead of night

ISLAMABAD: The Public Accounts Committee was told on Monday that the office of Chairman PAC Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan was sitting on the inquiry report into the multibillion rupees scam in the National Logistic Cell (NLC) for the last several months.

The report contains documentary evidence to confirm involvement of four generals of the Pakistan Army in the biggest scam in the history of the NLC. But, in the absence of Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan from the PAC meeting for a short period of time, some members wondered why only one copy of this explosive report was given to Chaudhry Nisar.

Three Lieutenant Generals and one Major General, who were named in the report, had served at top positions in the NLC in the past and have since retired from service. The inquiry was held to determine the role of these three generals, who despite orders of the then Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz not to put the NLC money into the volatile stock market, invested billions of rupees in the stock exchange and subsequently lost the taxpayers money.

A large number of powerful brokers of Karachi were given huge money from the NLC funds to make investment in the volatile exchange market and subsequently billions were lost. Even these generals had taken a commercial loan to make investment in these stocks.

Earlier, during the course of the PAC proceedings it emerged that Secretary Planning Division Ashraf Hayat had deliberately given only one copy of the report to PAC Chairman Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for “His Eyes Only”.

Ashraf Hayat, who appeared before the PAC, on Monday was asked why the report was not shared with other PAC members. He said the report had already been sent to the office of PAC Chairman Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. But this did not satisfy the members as usually 20 copies of any report are sent to the PAC members. But what surprised them most was that the report was never put on the PAC agenda. The PAC members asked the secretary to dispatch the inquiry report to all of them.

Somewhat related: Here s a curious case involving NLC:
Wapda likely to lose Rs 3.2bn to Japanese company

ISLAMABAD: The financially crippled Wapda would soon be poorer by another Rs3.2 billion as it is set to lose a legal battle in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and would have to pay the amount to the Japan Power Generation Limited (JPGL), the Public Accounts Committee was informed on Monday.

The PAC was further informed that foreign loans worth billions of rupees, including half a billion rupees loan for access to justice, remained unspent thanks to the lethargy of government organisations.

What to talk of others, even Wapda did not use Rs6 billion foreign loan given by a foreign lending agency and the amount was returned to the Economic Affairs Division. Managing Director, National Logistic Cell, Major General Junaid, who appeared before the PAC to defend the report of the Auditor General of Pakistan, spoke of a strong possibility of the Wapda losing its legal battle against the JPGL. He provided these details in a bid to satisfy the PAC members about pending recovery of Rs75 million payable by the same company to the NLC. He said the Japanese company had committed to repay NLC Rs75 million after winning the legal battle, which it is quite confident of winning.

Earlier, the Auditor General of Pakistan told the PAC that NLC had given a loan of Rs75 million to the JPGL. The NLC entered into a loan agreement with the JPGL on July 2, 2007 for the purpose of meeting existing liabilities. The loan was repayable by December 31, 2008 at 14 per cent mark-up rate. The company had already paid Rs13 million as interest to the NLC up to September 2008 in two installments. But, the AGP said, the JPGL had shown a net loss of Rs206 million in its accounts and in view of the poor financial position, the company might not repay the NLC the loan. The loan was sanctioned by former DG NLC, although he did not have any power to give loan to any foreign company. Interestingly, the NLC gave this loan to the Japanese company despite the fact that it itself had to make payment of Rs4.7billion to different banks and financial institutions….

NOTES:
1. What is interesting is “Japan Power Generation Limited (JPGL)” is NOT a “Japanese” company but a “Pakistani” one based in Lahore Cantt (HOW COULD RAUF KLASSRA MIS THAT??):

The Company’s activities include owning, operating and maintaining an oil-fired power station with a net contracted capacity of 120.5 megawatts (gross capacity of 135 megawatts). The Company is engaged in generating and supplying electric power to Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA)

WHAT does that mean? It is MOST CERTAINLY another company owned by the guy running the LPG scam and the Rental Power Scam — the one-time Mush crony and today Zardari’s — Iqbal Z. Ahmad

P.S. Iqbal Z. Ahmed and his scams were also the topic of last night’s Islamabad Tonight. Guest was Khawaja Asif

2. Please DO note that the the government’s inability to utilize loans does NOT mean the loans don’t acquire interest. So the money is just sitting there racking up interest which we have to pay back. And if you thought our defense budget was high, consider this: The amount paid in interest payment on these loans is alone 150% of our defense budget!!!

3. So basically what NLC has done is to loan money to JPGL so they can sue WAPDA for billions. Of course WAPDA WILL lose as ICJ is desined that way (as is the WTO that you are so proud to belong to). More on that someday later as it is a HUGE can of worms…But I would like to give you an example of how WTO/ICJ works:

A few years back, an Italian company won a contract from the Government of Pakistan (GoP) for some development contract. They NEVER started work using the excuse that the “security situation in Pakistan was not good, leaving them unable to perform the said works”. AND they headed straight for ICJ suing GoP for the “profits they would have made had they done the work”. Again the argument was “Hey we want to do the work but we can’t but we are entitled to the profits we would have made from the project had we done it. And since it is  GoP that is unable to provide us a safe environment to work in, it is GoP that is liable and must pay us the moneys we could have made.”

Of course the ICJ ruled in favor of the Italians and against the GoP which had to pay up (probably by taking another loan).

A Quickie: Shahbaz Calls Current Rulers (Including Himself) ‘Incompetent’ ‘Dictators’

Shahbaz “said no project for energy generation was initiated during the 10 years dictatorial rule and the country was plunged into darkness and future generations would never forgive Pervez Musharraf for the criminal negligence.”

If I remember correctly, Musharraf took over 12 October 1999. Elections were held 18 February 2008.  By March 24, 2008, they were voting for a new PM (Mush stayed president 18 August 2008). Effectively his rule was over 2007.

At any stretch his rule was less than 9 years.

What Shahbaz is trying to do is blame Musharraf for the incompetence of his own and Zardari’s rule. though I do agree we are in the eleventh year of dictatorship (Now if we can add Sharif’s last stint to that… 😉  )
