trust the atlanticist nytimes to give this prominence.
fyi, munir akram is the pakistani ambassador to the UN who gained fame briefly last year for beating up his mistress, some eastern european white woman, so badly she had to be rescued by the police. of course, he has diplomatic immunity so he got away with it.
would you buy a used car from this man?
after creating the taliban and staffing it with pakistani army officers, the pakistanis are now crying loudly about the taliban. this is an excellent example of al-taqiyah in action. pakistanis are pretending to be upset about the taliban and the yanks are pretending to accept that stance.
much like in india the kaangress does anti-people things and their supporters the communists pretend to object and the public pretends to accept this charade.
we live in a world of diplomatic and political theater: the willing suspension of disbelief.
