There is failure on the part of the Intelligence Agencies and ‘a total collapse of the Government’ in the words of the Commission of Enquiry appointed by Pakistan to look into this fiasco.

The commission has submitted a 365 page report.
This report  also explains how the US kept the Pakistani Government in the dark.


Despite the remark by the Commission’s remark ‘that the report may be buried’

It was and never made Public.

Al Jazeera obtained the Report and has published it.

“It is official or unofficial defence policy not to attempt to defend the country if threatened, or even attacked by a military superpower like the US?” the Commission asks of several top military officers.

“From a Pakistani strategic doctrine point of view,” the report notes, while issuing findings on how the military had wholly focused its “peacetime deployment” of defence capabilities on the border with India, “the world stood still for almost a decade.”

Finally, through testimony from Bin Laden’s family and intelligence officials, it provides a fascinating, and richly detailed, account of Bin Laden’s time in Pakistan: his movements, his habits and his pattern of life.

In concluding its report, the Commission finds that the country’s “political, military intelligence and bureaucratic leadership cannot be absolved of their responsibility for the state of governance, policy planning and policy implementation that eventually rendered this national failure almost inevitable”, and calls on the country’s leadership to formally apologise to the people of Pakistan for “their dereliction of duty”.

Perhaps aware of the implications of its findings, the Commission notes that it had “apprehensions that the Commission’s report would be ignored, or even suppressed”, and urged the government to release it to the public.

It did not do so. The report was buried by the government and never made public.

Until now.

Al Jazeera has obtained a copy of the Commission’s report, and presents it here, in full, along with accompanying coverage to help unpick the details, and implications of its findings.


Page 197 of the report, which contains part of the testimony of Lt-Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, then director of the ISI, was missing from all copies of the report that Al Jazeera obtained from multiple sources. It is unclear what was contained on that page, but the contextual implication is that, among other things, it contains a list of seven demands made by the United States of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

The incoming Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) government will hold the trial of former president Pervez Musharraf over charges of treason, reportedPress Trust of India on Tuesday.

The report quoted PML-N parliamentarian Tariq Azeem as saying that the party has decided to try Musharraf for treason in the Supreme Court.

“General Musharraf had violated the Constitution and he should face the music,” he was quoted as saying.

Azeem added that prime minister-elect Nawaz Sharif has made it clear that he has no personal issue with Musharraf but “he should be tried for breaking the law and violating the Constitution”.

The retired general has been detained in his farmhouse in Islamabad since April 19 on charges of conspiracy to murder former premier Benazir Bhutto, sacking of judges when he imposed emergency rule in 2007, and the 2006 death of Akbar Bugti.

The caretaker government had refused to hold Musharraf’s trial, saying that it wanted to focus on conducting free and fair elections.

Now we know why The Pakistani ISI Chief and The Military are demanding that General Musharraf  be treated respectfully in confinement.

Missing Children for Baluchistan, Pakistan.

“LONDON Former President Pervez Musharraf has said that most of the `missing persons` went `missing` on their own.

`They had joined various factions of jihadi outfits including Taliban without informing their families. Many had gone into Indian Kashmir to participate in Jihad and many went to Afghanistan to fight on the side of Taliban. Most were brainwashed.`

The former chief of the Pakistani Army, General Musharraf while participating in Aljazeera`s David Frost Show on Friday night rejected the perception that the Army and the ISI were somehow involved in making people disappear and said that Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry would finally come up with nothing in the case.

Answering a question on how he felt about the current situation in Pakistan he said he felt sad, despondent at whatever is happening in Pakistan today, `Pakistan is suffering.`

He, however, said Pakistan had the potential to fight back and all that is needed is for the government to win the confidence of the people in its ability to face terrorism and extremism and also in its ability to put the economy back on the rails.

In reply to another question he said he did not think there were more than 300-400 al Qaeda fighters holed up in the mountains of Pakistan`s tribal areas.

He said between the Taliban and al Qaeda he considered the former to be a more serious threat to Pakistan `because they are from among the population while the latter are foreigners and the local people are known to have supported the government in fighting them.`

He, however, said the Taliban could never overthrow the government in Islamabad, `Unless we commit a blunder. They should not be given any political space. If we keep giving them space they would keep gaining ground.`

“The judicial commission constituted for the recovery of the missing persons on Wednesday submitted it report in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, stating it has traced 378 missing persons cases while 633 are pending.

An apex court bench headed by the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry continued the hearing of missing persons’ case.

In report submitted by before the bench, the commission said that 24 cases were completed in Sindh while 100 are still pending.”


Musharraf ‘Life In Danger ,Have Come Back’ Why Ran Away

General Musharraf, former Pakistani President returned to Pakistan yesterday to participate in the Elections.

Addressing his supporters he said,


Musharraf Vows to save Pakistan

“I have put my life in serious danger and come back to save Pakistan,” he said in his 10-minute talk with journalists in front of his supporters who could not hear what he was saying because of faulty sound system.

“I have come back home today. Where are those who used to say I would never come back?”

He said this was his first day of launching active politics in Pakistan but from this “day one” he had started facing conspiracies.“The conspirators have sabotaged my first rally at the Quaid’s Mausoleum, but I am overwhelmed to see how many people from all parts of the country have come to receive me. I am really very happy to have come back to my motherland,” he said, adding: “I am not scared of anyone, except Allah the Almighty.”

He said he was a soldier who had learned not to hesitate to sacrifice life for the sake of the country. “I have come back under the same oath and have put my life in danger.”

“Those who are giving me life threats, I want to tell them that I am a Syed, a soldier and a staunch Muslim. I don’t fear death. I am a more devoted Muslim than those who are threatening me.

“I want to tell all those who are making such threats that I have been blessed by Allah.”

He said the state of affairs the country was passing through now saddened him.

“Poverty and unemployment have broken the back of my people. I promise to you, I am here to get back for you the same Pakistan I had left behind four years ago.”

He criticised the government on the rise of militancy in Karachi and said the city belonged to the Baloch, Sindhis, Mohajirs, Bengalis, Biharis and everyone who lived there and had a stake there. He appealed to all the people and political parties to make Karachi a bastion of peace and prosperity.

Gen Musharraf said he would soon start his political campaign and hold rallies across the country.

“We will save Pakistan at any cost,” he chanted before going back into the VVIP lounge whose door had remained open throughout his talk.

His supporters who waited for hours but could not hear a word of what Gen Musharraf told reporters were visibly disappointed.

Before his arrival, till 11.40am, there were dozens of personnel of the Airport Security Force, police and Rangers in the open space outside the terminal, and only about half-a-dozen party leaders who were largely seen busy on their mobile phones apparently getting directions from their superiors. And then, the first group of supporters emerged, dancing and chanting slogans in favour of the retired general.

The information secretary of Gen Musharraf’s APML, Aasia Ishaq, claimed: “Tens of thousands of people are coming from across the country. They are getting late because of severe traffic jams on highways.

Righteous words indeed!

Then why did you run away from Pakistan when the situation was worse/(well,on Pakistan, you can never say which is worse)!

Did you not leave Pakistan because of a Saudi deal assuring you of safe passage?

Again are you not returning because of a Saudi back door deal, though they initially advised against returning to Pakistan?

As Indian Home Minister said, ‘People will forget all these shortly’

Contribute to the confusion in Pakistan.

‘Talking to The Express Tribune, a close aide to Musharraf – who is due to arrive at Karachi airport around 12:45pm today – revealed that following closed-door meetings with the Saudi royals, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has agreed to refrain from creating any trouble for the former dictator upon his return. He added that in light of the threats issued against Musharraf by the Taliban, the country’s security agencies would provide security to the former president.

According to the aide, both PML-N head Nawaz Sharif and army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani paid visits to the kingdom recently to discuss issues pertaining to Musharraf’s return and the upcoming elections in Pakistan. Musharraf himself met the Saudi rulers as well on separate occasions, he added.

PML-N’s top leadership has remained tight-lipped on the alleged deal over Musharraf’s return. Both Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Khawaja Saad Rafique refused to comment on the issue when contacted.

PML-N spokesperson Ahsan Iqbal, however, denied any deal with Musharraf and maintained his party’s stance remained unchanged. He claimed the former dictator had tried to use diplomatic pressure to meet Nawaz Sharif, but his request was turned down by the latter.

“For his crimes against the nation and the Constitution, Musharraf must face charges in the court of law,” he said, adding that his party would have no objection if the former president was cleared by the courts.

‘We Can take India Out in Eight Seconds’ Pakistan

Yes,You took out India and formed Bangladesh.

You took out Osama Bin Laden.

You are an integrated unified and strong Country.

Ayyo paavam!

Pakistan could launch a nuclear strike on India within eight seconds, claimed an army general in Islamabad whose warning is described in the latest volume of Alastair Campbell‘s diaries.

The general asked Tony Blair’s former communications director to remind India of Pakistan‘s nuclear capability amid fears in Islamabad that Delhi was “determined to take them out”.

Britain became so concerned about Pakistan’s threat that Blair’s senior foreign policy adviser, Sir David Manning, later warned in a paper that Pakistan was prepared to “go nuclear”.

The warnings are relayed by Campbell in a section in his latest diaries, The Burden of Power, which are being serialised in the Guardian on Saturday and Monday. The diaries start on the day of the 9/11 attacks and end with Campbell’s decision to stand down in August 2003 after the Iraq war.

The nuclear warnings came during a visit by Blair to the Indian subcontinent after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. Campbell was told about the eight-second threat over a dinner in Islamabad on 5 October 2001 hosted by Pervez Musharraf, then Pakistan’s president.

Campbell writes: “At dinner I was between two five-star generals who spent most of the time listing atrocities for which they held the Indians responsible, killing their own people and trying to blame ‘freedom fighters’. They were pretty convinced that one day there would be a nuclear war because India, despite its vast population and despite being seven times bigger, was unstable and determined to take them out.

“When the time came to leave, the livelier of the two generals asked me to remind the Indians: ‘It takes us eight seconds to get the missiles over,’ then flashed a huge toothy grin.”

Blair visited Pakistan less than a month after the 9/11 attacks as Britain and the US attempted to shore up support in Islamabad before the bombing of Afghanistan, which started on 7 October 2001. Campbell writes that the Pakistani leadership seemed to be keen for Britain and the US to capture Osama bin Laden, though he added it was difficult to be sure.”

Militants Free 384 Prisoners in Pakistan

Stateless state of affairs in Pakistan,

If the Government is busy in confabulating with Terrorists, this is the price it has pay.

Stateless state of affairs in Pakistan,

If the Government is busy in confabulating with Terrorists, this is the price it has to pay.

Nearly 400 prisoners escaped from a jail in northwest Pakistan early on Sunday after it was attacked by Islamist militants armed with guns and rocket propelled grenades, a senior police official said.

Some who fled the jail in the town of Bannu, near unruly ethnic Pashtun tribal areas close to the Afghan border, were militants, an intelligence official said.

One inmate who escaped was on death row for involvement in an attempt to assassinate former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, a second police official said.

Pakistan’s al Qaeda-linked Taliban movement, which has close links to al Qaeda, said its fighters mounted the assault, which triggered clashes. Several people were wounded.

“We have freed hundreds of our comrades in Bannu in this attack. Several of our people have reached their destinations, others are on their way,” a Taliban spokesman said.

The claim could not be immediately verified.

If the al Qaeda-linked Taliban freed the prisoners, it could deal a psychological blow to Pakistani security forces following government assertions that security crackdowns have weakened the group.”

Is Imran Khan The Leader Pakistan Desperately Needs?

Imran Kahn has been in the Pakistan National scene for quite some time now.

His views on Terrorism, Religious Extremism,US,ISI,Army and India are often contradictory.

However, he seems to have a view at least for Pakistan more than for himself unlike others in the Government or the Military.

They seem to be more occupied with their problem of either retaining/consolidating their position or trying to destabilize the other.

May be Imran Khan might turn out to be so when and if he comes to power.

It  is one thing to talk fervently against Corruption,but it a different ball game when you come to power and have to manage and administer.

It is equally a tough task to decide on partners to capture power, especially so in Pakistan where the power centres are too many- Extremist parties,Pseudo Secularists,Army,ISI and the present Civilian Government.

Add to this the confusion of General Pervez Musharaff threatening to enter Pakistan, paving the way for a fresh confrontation between the Judiciary and the Executive and you have Nawaz Sherif and Zardari to think of.

Much to the discomfort of these power centre, out there is the People of Pakistan about whom no body thinks of.

Of vital importance, is his approach to India-none ignore the India factor in Pakistan.

He has to balance it with the sentiments in Pakistan and international pressure in normalizing relations with India.

The advantage Imran has is that he is known internationally and the people of Pakistan seem to think of him as an alternative.

He is known to  have been dictatorial and imperial when he was the Captain of the Pakistani Cricket team, had more enemies ,on /off the field.

Though he is yet to prove his policy on various issues and  Political management, Imran seems to be the only available option in Pakistan,Insha Allah.

Picture of Imran Khan.

“I’ll start by highlighting points made recently by two Pakistani writers. In a long and excellent profile in the magazine The Caravan, Madiha Tahir writes: “The political worldview of the middle and upper classes — whether it’s the politics of personal expression and individual rights, moral outrage against corruption, or the outspoken embrace of tradition and piety — has almost no point of overlap with the needs and desires of millions of  of Pakistanis who are too poor to exercise meaningful choice in such matters.”

This cuts close to something Westerners and some Pakistani liberals willfully fail to understand about Pakistan: that it’s not really feasible to promote both Western-style or Western-leaning secular liberalism and the interests and aspirations of the much larger numbers of the Pakistani rural and urban poor. Which gets in turn to a very interesting contradiction in Imran’s own character and position: he is an elitist populist. He is “at his strongest,” writes Madiha Tahir, “delivering a trenchant critique of the often self-satisfied assumptions that underpin secular liberalism.”

On, Akbar Ahmed, professor at American University in Washington, DC and former Pakistani High Commissioner to the UK, begins with an obvious but crucial point: “There is a direct correlation between the depths of the gloom in Pakistan and the high expectations of salvation from Imran Khan. It is clear that the greater the despair in the country, the more fervent the hopes in one man as saviour.”

And he cautions: “There are already danger-signs as some old faces who have done the rounds with different parties have now jumped onto Imran’s bandwagon. The balance between making deals in order to chip away at the power base of the ruling Zardari-Bhutto dynasty and the Sharif one, and maintaining his integrity will be crucial.”
