I do like it when enemies of the USA confess. Keep pictures of their
faces and vehicle registration numbers.

The USA is already fully aware of that particular bunch and wants a
serious word with them.

So do the Indian government.

What the article doesn't say (but the one in 'The Hindu did) is that
the former head of the ISI was marching alongside the fundies.

Certainly the Pakistani military establishment is dirty, all that we
really want to know is how high does the rot go in the political side
of the government.

Almost all the open association with known terrorists is done on
military bases and they use Pakistani army weapons and equipment but
how complicit the Pakistani political establishment is, nobody really
knows except themselves.
