Pakistan: This Government Is Committing Treason

We have information that both Mr. Husain Haqqani and Mr. Husain Haroon, our ambassadors to the U.S. and U.N. respectively, were instructed by the Zardari-Gilani government to coordinate with the British and the American ambassadors to ensure that the name of former ISI chief Hameed Gul, in addition to other Pakistani citizens and organizations, are included in a Security Council resolution. We have a government with shady characters in key places, strongly backed by the Bush administration, acting and behaving as if they were representing a U.S. occupation government in Pakistan.

Mr Zardari, Do these look like Terrorists?

KARACHI – Hundreds of school children have turned out to protest the decision by United Nations to ban a charity accused by India over the Mumbai attacks.

Outside the Karachi Press Club, students of Jama’at-ud-Dawa run schools in the city of Karachi complained that Jama’at-ud-Dawa was not a terrorist organisation and should not be banned.

“Thousands of children all over the country have been affected by this unjust ban”, said one of the teachers. “This is a total farce, we are not terrorists.”

The children carried placards and posters demanding the government overturn the ban.

Mumbai ­Murky Piece Of A Tangled Web

Terrell E. Arnold

Beginning on the evening of November 26, Mumbai, India, a city of 13 million people, was disrupted by a terrorist attack that was worse than anything it had ever before experienced in a long history of exposure to violence. Ten determined terrorists, equipped only with rifles, handguns and grenades, took the lives of nearly 200 people, defaced and nearly destroyed famous Mumbai landmark hotels, and wounded over 300 more people before they were stopped. It was a well-planned and executed piece of carnage that took Indian police and counterterrorism forces nearly sixty hours to bring to an end.

Why it took so long to contain this attack of only ten shooters will remain a serious question, but the terrorists, only one of whom was taken alive, were obviously well prepared. They separated, attacked at least five separate sites, knew their way around the places they assaulted, and in some degree were aided by the early unwillingness of police to shoot back. Moreover, the terrorists apparently came prepared for the long haul with ample supplies of ammunition and bags of sliced almonds to stave off hunger. In that respect they did not behave like martyrs, although they certainly had reason to expect death. But the puzzles they left behind are certainly much larger than life.
