WASHINGTON: The United States is dusting off a long-discarded proposal to declare Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism. But with the Bush administration now in its final six weeks in office, a decision in this regard is being left to the incoming Obama government, sources said, contingent on corrective actions taken in the meantime by Islamabad to the satisfaction of India, US and other countries affected by Pakistan's toxic export of death.
US intelligence circles are now re-evaluating Pakistan's contribution to the war on terror, and the ISI's dominant role in the country and its ties with jihadi outfits, at the behest of the Bush administration . The White House itself lost faith in the Pakistan Army's bonafides several months ago which led to Washington's decision to withdraw support to military ruler Pervez Musharraf and back a new civilian government, officials and congressional aides who spoke on background explained. The decision to dump Musharraf was taken at vice-president Dick Cheney recommendation, they added, because of evidence that Pakistan was continuing to help Taliban elements attacking Nato forces.
Now the Bush administration is even more convinced that the Pakistani Army and its intelligence arm ISI, who still calls the shots in Islamabad, are continuing their toxic policies. But firm action against them is constrained by both the transition phase in Washington and the US dependence on Pakistan to maintain supply lines to its troops in land-locked Afghanistan. Officials are now re-examining options in this regard, particularly US leverage against Islamabad if Pakistan considers interdiction strategies.

The Omamunist went to Pakistan for several weeks between schools; his roommates at Occidental were Pakis and they apparently arranged to have him go over. The Obamunist has Paki connections. Don’t expect The Obamunist to give India any support if India decides to take care of business vis-a-vis Paki.

No different than here in the West. Many of the Indians I know hate the news media.
If I were GWB, I would...
1. Make Mecca the modern day Hiroshima.
2. Resign, and let Cheney take over.
It's kind of like when you read European takes on American politics. You wonder how they can get so much so wrong. I find it's usually not a matter of bias either. They're just somewhat clueless.
