It is well known that Busharaf craved the media spotlight of the gora USA/UK....Which uplifted his small chamar stature and ego. So he has done it yet again.
Rather than share the TRUTH about the drone genocide against fellow, innocent, poor, helpless, Pakistani civilians since 2004, THE ISSUE of which preoccupies 95% of Pakistanis against it, our Chamar Gunga Din general INSTEAD decided to be candid and open in telling the GORA world MEDIA that it was indeed he who set the drone precedence in sovereign Pakistan territory by the CIA/JEWSA.
Now for some background.
We know the Taliban was created by the CIA in 1994 using the ISI and Gulf money for the purpose of creating a "Controlled Opposition" within a medieval Failed State which could be justifiably invaded by the JEWSA later, to 'save the world' from the perils of Islamic Fundamentalism and 9/11.
Upon invasion of that hapless strive ridden country, the CIA/Pentagon turned it into a giant 18th century plantation for the purpose of growing Opium to export around the world.
The JEWSA/CIA/Pentagon has no real reason to be in Afghanistan, and fight for 12 years. BUT if they wish to stay in the country to continue with their criminal activity, then an enemy must be invented, and that enemy is the Taliban, which is run by the ISI (WHO STRANGELY OVER 12 years have not given them any heavy weapons, WHILST/which the Syria "al-CIA-duh" rebels are receiving NOW, within 2 years)...ISI/Punjab military in turn are funded and run by the CIA/Pentagon.
That is why Chamar Chutia Busharaf has gone to gora sahib TV to speak in English to give COVER and sort of explanation for what is essentially illegal action by the CIA against largely civilian populations...95%.....and not FIRST to the Pakistani people/MEDIA WHICH IS what he should have done as a honest upright Pakistani.
In return chamar chutia Busharaf hopes to get CIA/ISI help in his presidential bit this May.
"Help elect me as the next President, and I will give you free reign in your drone genocide against my fellow Pakistanis. Remember Sahib SIR it was I who first helped you drone my country and people from 2004--2008, as PRESIDENT. Thank you sahib"
The chamar chutia is desperate....and is the reason why Pakistan is a failed state, near the bottom. Its leaders don't bat for Pakistan, but gora sahib's agenda in the region and country.
He does not care about the lives and welfare of fellow Pakistanis.........whose TAX rupees paid for his career from 1970, and turned him into a general. He does not understand gratitude and selfless service to his people.
This of course is not the first time and only time.
Think about Kargil......sending 4,000 civilian lashkars and SSG's to their death in a pointless operation which humiliated the Pakistan military, undertaken by Musharaf to scupper peace between India and Pakistan over Kashmir......the reason for which was sort of used for a coup a few months after that defeat in 1999.
Why does Pakistan tolerate this delusional liar criminal scoundrel who pretends to wrap himself around the Pakistani flag, and yet betrays the country at every turn?
The real job Busharaf is better suited for.....
Pervez Musharraf Admits Permitting 'A few' US Drone Strikes in Pakistan
Former president says strikes were discussed at military and intelligence level and cleared 'maybe two or three times'
By Jon Boone in Islamabad and Peter Beaumont at "Information Clearing House" and originally reported in the London-"The Guardian" -
Pakistan's former president Pervez Musharraf has admitted giving permission for the CIA to launch drone attacks inside his country, directly contradicting repeated claims by the Pakistani government that it has never authorised drone strikes.
His comments in a CNN interview screened on Thursday night follow US media claims this week that Pakistani officials were for years intimately involved in the US drone campaign in the country. The unexpected admission breaks Pakistan's policy of blanket denial of involvement. Last month following a visit to Islamabad Ben Emmerson QC, the UN's special rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights, said he had been given assurances that there was no "tacit consent by Pakistan to the use of drones on its territory".
For its part the Obama administration has defended the legality of its drone activities and said strikes are conducted only with consent from the states involved.
Musharraf said Pakistan gave permission "only on a few occasions, when a target was absolutely isolated and [there was] no chance of collateral damage".
He said the strikes were discussed "at the military [and] intelligence level" and cleared only if "there was no time for our own [special operations task force] and military to act. That was … maybe two or three times only".
Musharraf added: "You couldn't delay action. These ups and downs kept going … it was a very fluid situation, a vicious enemy … mountains, inaccessible areas."
Pakistani denials of involvement have been questionable since the WikiLeaks disclosure of a 2008 diplomatic cable in which the US ambassador Anne Patterson mentioned a discussion about drone strikes during a meeting with the then interior minister, Rehman Malik, and the then prime minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani.
Last year Pakistan's parliament declared all drone strikes illegal, which activists argue overrides any secret arrangements that might still exist with the US. There have been reports that the CIA sends regular faxes to Pakistan's military spy agency, notifying them of the general areas where drones will operate.
The issue of whether Pakistan has approved US drone strikes on militants is a key issue in determining the legality of the strikes under international conflict law.
On Tuesday US media firm McClatchy reported on a review of US intelligence reports that it claimed confirmed for the first time the existence of a long-term arrangement between the CIA and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI), under which US drones were used against Pakistani Taliban militants at the ISI's request in exchange for helping the US to identify and hit al-Qaida targets.
According to McClatchy: "That partnership was so extensive during the Bush administration that the Pakistani intelligence agency selected its own targets for drone strikes. Until mid-2008 the CIA had to obtain advance approval before each attack, and under both administrations the Pakistanis received briefings and videos of the strikes."
The collaboration was continuing as late as 2010, documents reportedly show, although an ISI veto on targets had by then been removed. The McClatchy claims followed a report in the New York Times last week based on a dozen interviews with US and Pakistani officials, offering a detailed depiction of the beginning of secret co-operation between the ISI and CIA over the Pakistani drone campaign.
The claims appear to have made Pakistan's policy of denial unsustainable. What is puzzling, however, is why Musharraf chose to break precedent, beset as he is by multiple court cases and a distinct lack of popular enthusiasm for his election campaign, which he kicked off last month by returning to Pakistan after more than four years of self-imposed exile.
Shahzad Akbar, a lawyer and Pakistan's most prominent anti-drones activist, said the remarks would potentially change the legal status of only a handful of strikes, and not the vast majority that occurred after Musharraf stood down in 2008.
"The only thing it changes is we have one more person to sue, one more person to bring cases against," he said.
Akbar, who is awaiting the verdict in a case at the Peshawar high court that is likely to declare drone strikes illegal and order Pakistan to pay compensation to people killed by the attacks, said he would explore whether Musharraf could be prosecuted for "waging a war against Pakistan".
"Either he is extremely stupid and doesn't realise what he's doing, or he knows that there is nothing left and it was a big mistake to come back to Pakistan," Akbar said. "He's giving the US a leeway on the legality of drone strikes, he is looking for a safe passage out."
