147. I read this morning that the Pakistani people are mighty upset about that too...
They are angry with their government. They say had the government of Pakistan stood firm and assisted America, they would have been a hero nation in this. There is a cry for investigation their government and their military... I think the people are really embarrassed... I guess after 8 years of BushCo, we can commiserate!


The American discovery of the Abbottabad mansion from which Osama bin laden was directing his al-Qaeda operations for the past five-six years has brought Pakistan under the scanner in America's war against terror like never before. President Obama has assured an investigation to look into who was harboring Osama. The ruling politicians in Pakistan have taken it upon themselves to defend their country's role with an innocence that speaks of their total lack of knowledge about the inhabitants of the Abbottabad mansion. The idea is to reflect that they are in control but the fact is they have yet not been empowered to control the Pakistani Army and the ISI.

The Pakistani rulers are yet again looking towards America to provide them with the leash with which the Army and the ISI can be reigned in. Both these Pakistani institutions have worked in very close coordination with the US in the past and have drawn their power and influence to overrule the people's representatives from none other than America. The betrayal of the US by these two Pakistani institutions has opened a window of opportunity for the people of Pakistan to possibly reverse this power equation.

Imran Khan in a column in India Today hoped for an Egypt in Pakistan. His hopes can be answered if America gets to the root of who harbored Osama bin Laden all these years. The people of Pakistan deserve an answer more than anyone else. The rallying point can come form the shame that has been to brought to an entire nation.

The fringe elements in Pakistan that have carried Osama's portrait on their heads all these years can shout at max. Those who draw pleasure in flogging their women in public can by no means push back the silent majority if chooses to rise.
