The audio leaks show @ImranKhanPTI enjoys creative imagination. But @husainhaqqani as the architect of political power in #Pakistan is both a testament to former Amb's political genius and a sign that a desperate Khan is running out of people to bash to stay relevant in the news.
Latest #ImranKhan fake-news story after #QamarBajwa Card has expired. Looks fake since no US citizen can lobby in DC without registration. Amazing now Khan can get away with so many brazen lies and fake news in such a short time in Pakistani politics./2

Husain Haqqani replaces #ImranKhan's Qamar Bajwa Card, which has become too hot to handle for Khan esp after Ch Pervaiz Elahi's warning. Recently, Khan launched #HaqqaniBajwaFiles trend. Normally, such disinfo is produced by Shireen Mazari & media cell.

#Pakistan's former Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI builds up ex-Amb @husainhaqqani as the most powerful political operator in Islamabad who can change Pak govts from DC!

Special adviser Shireen Mazari leading Khan to more dead ends.


Good response from ex-Amb Husain Haqqani to ousted ex-PM Imran Khan and his #fakenews-peddling team who recently alleged Haqqani caused Khan's ailing govt in #Pakistan to fall back in April in a 'super conspiracy' while sitting inside a think tank in DC/5

15 yrs after her assassination, today, 27 Dec 2007, I want to come clean on the organized smear campaign that intensified in the lead up to #BenazirBhutto's murder, a campaign in which I inadvertently joined. Which is why she was going to see me at 10 pm that night. /1
I received a call from Dr Asif Khan, #BenazirBhutto's quiet operator in #Islamabad and a friend to ex-PM @RPAPPP around 4 pm to reconfirm a meeting with her at Bilawal House. I was at state-run PTV, in a suit, making cuts to my weekly show, ready to leave for the meet at 10 pm./2
I was in the editing room at around 6:30 pm when a media liaison offcr frm Pres #Musharraf's office dropped by, opened door, & said, 'Did you hear? My info from a source at hospital confirms she's dead.' There was silence. He left. I checked the time, thought about my meeting. /3

Second major blow dealt today to #ProjectImranKhan 2011-2022. First was Khan's failure to secure Parliament support in April. Today, the worst infowar against #Pakistan Armed Forces, meant to divide country's strongest institution from within, waged by Khan's party, fell flat. /1
The failure of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan in influencing top appointments within #Pakistan Army through blackmail, and the failure of the sophisticated and vicious disinformation campaign by Khan's #PTI Media Cell, is a win for the institution an for 🇵🇰. /2

President @ArifAlvi has united #Pakistan by putting nation's stability above politics. He flew in PM @CMShehbaz's jet to Lahore to consult with @ImranKhanPTI.

Country before party. Duty before politics.

@PresOfPakistan largely overruled #PTI's petty politics. /3

Embarrassing moment for #Iran's embattled Govt when members of its national team at #Qatar stadium boycotted the anthem of the Khomeinist Republic, which is different from Iranian national anthem pre-1979. /1

Some Iranian fans at #Qatar stadium for #EnglandVIran booed the national anthem of post-1979 Khomeinist #Iran, and took to social media to explain difference btwn the Khomeinist anthem and national anthem pre-1979. /2

Iranian woman at #Qatar stadium for #EnglandVIran unfurled a lion and sun flag, #Iran's 🇮🇷 before the 1979 Khomeinist Republic. She was cheered by the crowd but stopped later by security for politicizing a sporting event. /3

The colorful ousted premier @ImranKhanPTI is now ready to make the #US a friend again after leading one of the most intense campaigns of anti-Americanism in modern #Pakistan history. The biggest U-turn so far in the decade-long 2011-2022 #ImranKhan Project. /1
📋@Wabbasi007 Image
The latest U-turn by @ImranKhanPTI in an interview with @FT effectively rolls back a yearlong #PTI anti-#US campaign, and will shock party stalwarts like @ShireenMazari1 who played a key role in pushing Khan's anti-Americanism agenda. /2

#ImranKhan's decision to abandon his @PTIofficial's signature anti-Americanism, in interview with @FT, was part of a triangular political messaging technique Khan used to increase support. Anti-#US feelings came in handy with corruption & #antisemitism. /3

#Pakistan Army responds to #ImranKhan's allegations on its alleged involvement in an alleged assassination attempt that Khan blames on the military and the premier intelligence agency #ISI.

Text of the Military Statement released by @OfficialDGISPR:
