Excerpts from CNN’s ( Fareed Zakaria on GPS ) interview of the former military dictator of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf.

The former military dictator claims that the Quetta Shura and news of the presence of Mullah Omar in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan are lie’s invented by India and supported by the Indian influenced Afghan intelligence:

FAREED ZAKARIA GPS

Assessment of Obama's First Year in Office; Interview With Pervez Musharraf

Aired November 8, 2009 - 13:20 ET ……………………

ZAKARIA: OK, let me ask you about Waziristan, since we've now gotten into the details of this area in Pakistan.

As you said, in South Waziristan, there is what is often called the Pakistani Taliban, headed by Baitullah Mehsud, who was just assassinated by a drone attack.

There are some people, Ahmed Rashid, a Pakistani journalist, who says this is a moment of truth for the Pakistani army, because they are mounting an attack against -- in South Waziristan -- against the forces of Baitullah Mehsud, who are the Pakistani Taliban, the Taliban that attack the Pakistani state.

But in North Waziristan you have the other elements of extremist groups, radical groups, the so-called Haqqani faction of the Taliban, the Afghan Taliban -- the people who tend to launch attacks against Afghanistan, against India, against places outside Pakistan.

This is the Pakistan army's moment of truth. Will it take on both the Talibans? Or will it only take on the extremist groups that threaten Pakistan?

MUSHARRAF: Yes, you are absolutely right, that there are various elements, as you said, in South Waziristan and in North Waziristan.

I have been telling since long, since three or four years, please give me drones. I want to look at this Baitullah Mehsud, because he's the one who assassinated Benazir Bhutto. And he is the one who is carrying out these suicide attacks, indoctrinating people. Dozens of suicide attackers we know have been indoctrinated. They are going to carry out bomb attacks.

ZAKARIA: The argument is that, you know, the Pakistani army somehow never seems to get around to attacking, in North Waziristan, those groups who attack either Afghanistan or Western targets or India. And the reason is that these groups, who were often supported in the past -- not now, but in the past -- by the Pakistani military. And that, therefore, somehow in this planning process, you never get around to North Waziristan.

MUSHARRAF: They will not support it. They will not support it. That was not the government policy. That was not the military policy.

However, there was ingress -- always, in every group -- there is an ingress of the ISI. And that is the efficiency, the effectiveness of the ISI. You must have ingress, so that you can influence all organizations. And it is this ingress of theirs -- which doesn't mean that they are supporting them, but they have ingress. They have some contacts, which can be used for their own advantage. ………………


ZAKARIA: But you know, just look. American intelligence, the Afghan government, Afghan intelligence all say, Mullah Omar is in Pakistan.

MUSHARRAF: Afghan intelligence, Afghan president, Afghan government. Don't talk of them. I know what they do. They are, by design, they mislead the world. They talk against Pakistan, because they are under the influence of Indian intelligence -- all of them.

The Afghan intelligence entirely under the influence of Indian intelligence. We know that.

ZAKARIA: But General Musharraf...

MUSHARRAF: Let me come back to Quetta Shura. I must (ph)...

ZAKARIA: ... but you've -- this is important, because you are revealing why people, many, many people feel that Pakistan has a very antagonistic attitude towards Afghanistan.

You view Afghanistan as a client state of India. And therefore, you do not -- you are not willing to really help Afghanistan succeed.

MUSHARRAF: No, not at all. That is not the case.

Whatever I am saying, I am not saying it here. I have given documentary evidence of all this to everyone. There is the documentary evidence. And we know the involvement of Indian intelligence, in India, with their intelligence.

I have given documentary evidence to everyone from top to bottom. Everyone knows it. And we have the documentary evidence. ………………..

Gen.Bandicoot is having a field day,safe in his British lair swilling whisky,guarded by MI5 wallahs,occupying himself by giving interviews where he rants and raves at the current crop of rulers of Pak.He must be gloating over their discomfort-to put it mildly,as bombs go off all over Jinnah's moth-eaten state,now being blasted into fragments.The untreatable disease of Pak is that its rulers never blame themselves for the flaws in the system or the truth of their instability,but blame India,the US,the entire globe except themselves,the elite who are in charge of the country.If they cannot face the truth,Pak is doomed.The billion dollar Q that excites the globe is,since the collapse of Pak is inevitable,who will inherit or steal the nukes?

Meanwhile a most interesting obit of a well known veteran of WW2,with links to Pak in its early days.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituar ... wgill.html

Excerpt:
Anthony Cowgill was born on November 7 1915, the son of a Yorkshire mill manager. Educated at Bradford and Manchester Grammar Schools, he went on to graduate in Mining Engineering at Birmingham University. Shortly before the start of the Second World War he signed up for the regular Army, joining the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers after Sandhurst. He spent a year in Canada helping to develop the waterproofing of tanks, a secret weapon key to the success of the Normandy invasion in 1944. Landing in France shortly after D Day, he served on Montgomery's 2nd Army headquarters' staff until the end of the war, and was present at Luneberg Heath in May 1945 when Montgomery took the surrender of the German forces in northern Europe. Shortly afterwards Cowgill was awarded a military MBE.

He was then, as India prepared for Independence in 1947, seconded to the Partition Commission, organising the separation of the country's armed forces between India and Pakistan, after which he was assigned to the new Pakistani army. This led to what he described as the most worrying moment of his life. Returning to his Lahore headquarters one day he found himself, in British Army uniform, the only white man on a train overrun by thousands of armed Pathan tribesmen bent on seizing Kashmir. Sure his last hour had come, he was highly relieved when, addressing him as "sahib", they treated him instead with friendly respect.

All of you BRFites have it all wrong about Pukistan. It's a religiously tolerant secular nation of people (in line with djinnahs preachings - pbuh) that loves (nay, adores) its minorities. For example, see here how it's machinery went out of its way to help and support its Hindu brothers and sisters in the most important phase of their lives. Luckily, there was a press photographer present to document it all.

The first right of refusal lies of course with India and India alone. After all, those parts that constitute Pakistan were part of India for millennia until they were yanked off India. Anything to do with the lands, resources of present day Pakistan therefore has to be determined by India first and anything that India refuses to accept should then be determined through an UN decision perhaps.

Cool. So, per Mush, A'stan is an Indian client state.

Now only if India can replicate that in other states in the 'hood starting with Myanmar.

Can we then make a disticntion between the "movable and immovable" properties of the Paki state which will be apportioned as spoils to the victors? Who will get what? Baluchistan,Sindh and the Punjab have their claimants,so too does the NWFP.POK of course is India's.Will there be a "garage sale" of "plant and machinery" before BIFR ? What about the "workers" and "militant unions"? Will they all be sacked? Where will they go to? I don't think that the west will welcome them as refugees with open arms,nor wil the Shiite Persians.As for the Chinese,they would want nothing to do with a lazy lot of S.Asian "weegers" what?!

That is why I said very carefully
Anything to do with the lands, resources of present day Pakistan therefore has to be determined by India first and anything that India refuses to accept should then be determined through an UN decision perhaps.

Firstly, 'resources' mean anything useful and obviously that will naturally exclude Pakistanis but include their mineral and fossil resources, water, antiquities, and other items such as nuclear weapons and missiles. We need to get the last two so that they don't fall into undesirable hands. Secondly, India's decision will be final and India would leave the population question to be handled by the UN without recourse to India. With their identity linked to the Lands of Sands, and with enormous space available in Rab-al-Khali, there should not be too much problem.

Well, he never disguised his ambitions. He has tossed with the idea of forming a new political outfit. In the pecking order of the PA, he will come first followed by Nawaz and then trailing by a huge margin Zardari. The PA did indeed give him a ceremonial send-off when he left TSP to colder climates.

Today's count so far
Seventeen people, including six soldiers and a policeman, were killed on Monday when Taliban militants targeted security personnel with a suicide bombing, rocket attack and a roadside blast in restive north-western region, the officials said.

A suicide bomber blew himself up near a police post in Pakistan’s north-western city of Peshawar, killing at least three people.

Four soldiers died and one was injured when the Islamist insurgents targeted a security post with rockets in Makeen.

Separately, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded near an Army vehicle in another tribal district of Bajaur, killing two troops.

One troop was also injured in the explosion that took place in Salarzai area of the district.

Once India can afford couple of billion$ budget for the "hood" our capacity to manage them will increase manyfold. The combination of hard and soft power will be too hard to resist and then the real game will start , rolling back the last 200 years unnatural imbalance.

OT, but it isn't as if India cannot 'invest' a few billions in its 'hood. The real issue is a weak central leadership. If only we can have a nationalist dispensation in N.Delhi, things will fall into place, be it our lovely neighbourhood or even the giant lizard.

i haven't seen the interview but fareed zakaria is several orders of magnitude more intelligent than musharraff... normally, you give mushy enough rope, he hangs himself. i hope some of that took place. other interviews i have seen by zakaria were pretty on the ball

mushy lives near edgware road in london (not too far from hyde park), the heart of the arab quarter and not too far from high end neighbours like tony blair and a few celebs. his outer security provided by the met police costs ~£25k/day. i hope to bump into him eating donner kebabs and smoking sheesha in Beirut Express one of these days with his ex TSPA goons

personally i think he's made a tactically brilliant error, any tailb assassin will find it easier to blend into that 'hood than other parts of town

Bolded part may be true, but he knows which side his bread is buttered too.

At one point Farid did put the onus of instability in the region to 60 years of rivalry between India and Pukestan, instead of being upfront about the social engineering experiment gone bad by the sahibs.

Here is Madam hitting back. (Recall she is Editor of Nation these days)

Pakistani daily passes 'death sentence' on US journalist

hard-line Pakistani daily, Nation, widely seen to be a mouthpiece of the Pakistani military-security establishment. Citing ''an official of law enforcement agency who requested anonymity,'' the paper said ''Matthew was working as chief operative of CIA and Blackwater in Peshawar,'' and ''law enforcement agencies...had also traced Matthew’s links with Israel’s intelligence agency Mosad as well.'' { He is not linked to RAW ? :( }

The charges against Wall Street Journal’s Matthew Rosenberg....are also considered life-threatening given the fate that befell Rosenberg’s predecessor Daniel Pearl,

In an angry Nov 6 letter to the Nation’s Editor Shireen Mazari, WSJ Managing Editor Robert Thomson conveyed ''in the strongest possible terms our dismay and disgust over the slanderous and dangerous falsehoods” published against Rosenberg.

Welcome to Pashtunistan
But the Pentagon, make no mistake, knows exactly how to play its New Great Game in Eurasia. Balkanization of AfPak - the break-up of both Afghanistan and Pakistan - will engineer, among other states, an independent Pashtunistan and an independent Balochistan. Empire of Chaos logic is still British imperial divide-and-rule, remixed; and, at least in theory, yields territories much easier to control

The Pentagon as well as NATO will never be cheerleaders for a strong, stable and really independent Pakistan. Washington pressure over Islamabad will never be less than relentless. And then there's the return of the repressed: the chilling Pentagon fear that Islamabad might one day become a full Chinese client state.

Think-tankers in their comfy leather chairs do entertain the dream of the Pakistani state unraveling for good - victim of a clash within the military of Punjabis against Pashtuns. So what's in it for the US in terms of balkanization of AfPak? Quite some juicy prospects - chief of all neutralizing the also relentless Chinese drive for direct land access, from Xinjiang and across Pakistan, to the Arabian Sea (via the port of Gwadar, in Balochistan province).

I have a quick observation to make here.
The COAS is going to Israel, The Defense Minister in in Japan. Most of India's top 5 influential people are on foreign visits.
And BRF has started discussing post war spoils.
Looks like something's afoot.

Hmm it ain't looking for Pakistan :P

Lahori logic. 8) ---- DT edit. :rotfl:
On a separate note, the double standards of the US vis-à-vis Pakistan’s nuclear programme are glaring when it comes to India. A country that is known to have diverted its civilian nuclear programme to develop nuclear weapons, thereby sparking off a nuclear arms race in the Subcontinent, was ‘rewarded’ by the Americans in the shape of an Indo-US civilian nuclear agreement that leaves at least eight reactors outside the purview of IAEA inspections. India and Pakistan are both not signatories of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but only India is still allowed to carry on nuclear commerce with the rest of the world. Pakistan, on the other hand, has taken steps to stop the nuclear proliferation network headed by Dr A Q Khan in its tracks.

onlee in bakistan.

It will be interesting to see if the Wall Street Journal is going to be allow itself to be intimidated to relative quiescence as in the aftermath of the case of their journalist Daniel Pearl getting his throat slit in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for being Jewish or if they are going to use their clout with the US financial community to make Pakistan a no-go area for investments.

Dr. Shirin Mazari, since her appointment as editor, is certainly taking the IEDology of Pakistan obsessed “The Nation” to plumbing new lows in journalism :eek: .

the Lahore museum has a lot of harappan, ashokan, kushana and gandhara artifacts. for the purpose of safekeeping, its best the curators understand the tide and send them to delhi for safe keeping. would be shame to see all these targeted as un-islamic.

WSJ has been strangely silent for so long. The investigations into Daniel Pearl's killing was hugely bogus, OSS is still in jail, yet to be hanged. The prosecution successfully denied the defence's questioning of OSS as it was not in "national interest". Evidences dont corroborate. OSS denies KSM did the killing. KSM confesses he did the killing, then why is OSS in jail ? Why hasnt he been hanged, or the appeals heard or the case moved forward ?

OSS was happily sipping chai in a jernail's house when whole of Pakistan was supposedly looking for him. No questions were ever asked in WSJ, or articles written questioning the way in which the investigation and prosecution vis-a-vis Daniel Pearl's killing was conducted.

What will cause WSJ to wake up now ?

Small confusion of tense there. I would say that OSS is still happily sipping zam zam cola in his mansion in LaHore.

Pakistani daily passes 'death sentence' on US journalist

hard-line Pakistani daily, Nation, widely seen to be a mouthpiece of the Pakistani military-security establishment. Citing ''an official of law enforcement agency who requested anonymity,'' the paper said ''Matthew was working as chief operative of CIA and Blackwater in Peshawar,'' and ''law enforcement agencies...had also traced Matthew’s links with Israel’s intelligence agency Mosad as well.'' { He is not linked to RAW ? :( }

The charges against Wall Street Journal’s Matthew Rosenberg....are also considered life-threatening given the fate that befell Rosenberg’s predecessor Daniel Pearl,

In an angry Nov 6 letter to the Nation’s Editor Shireen Mazari, WSJ Managing Editor Robert Thomson conveyed ''in the strongest possible terms our dismay and disgust over the slanderous and dangerous falsehoods” published against Rosenberg.


I don't know how many Matthew Rosenbergs are there but the one who used to be a reporter for Associated Press was a real malignant a-hole. A total sympathizer for Islamic terrorists after any terrorist strike against India. If it is the same clown then I truly wish he is showered with the Jehadi love that he seemed to like so much.

And he still managed to get a renegade Jernail who was about to spill the beans killed off (or atleast take the rap for that).
Man this guy has rendered yeoman services to the pak fauj via his ISI handlers.
Everything from wiring money to Mohd Atta to killing DP to killing renegade Jernails is done by him.
The only feather in his cap that's missing is BB's killing. :oops:
