At around 2009-2010, When Asif Ali Zardari was President of Pakistan, he had told the Americans the Mumbai attack was an opportunity for him to "seize control" over the ISI. Yes, our head of state was discussing #thread

his internal squabbles with his own state institutions with agents of a foreign government that was subverting the country with terrorists based in Afghanistan. Just two years later, he would go on to pull Memogate with them right after the Raymond Davis incident.
This is why calls for democracy and civilian supremacy ring so hollow with most Pakistanis.

While Generals Kayani and Pasha pressed Hamid Karzai to put an end to the RAW-NDS nexus in Afghanistan,
Zardari would mock the ISI in front of the Americans and discuss New York's real estate with them, which gave them a clue to how corrupt he was.
Much to the dismay of the Americans, Indians and Pakistani desi liberals and ethnic supremacists, the people of Pakistan have no desire for any democracy and civilian supremacy that puts the likes of Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif at the helm of the country.
Now with the benefit of hindsight in 2020, the ISI should create a "lessons learned" database and never let the Sharif and Bhutto-Zardari families alone, and without question never let them anywhere near power in Pakistan again. Source: Steve Coll's book Directorate S

How can we support such traitors?
Are we so gullible or ignorant?
