The in-camera briefing in the parliament, the slide shows, and the cosmetics briefings by the Sherry Rehman have gone nowhere and the nation is wondering as what to make of them. They were utterly useless and pretty much disappointing without yielding anything concrete.
Talking of national security and Pakistan’s strategic goals, the political leadership’s of the country at both national and the regional level is still very murky and based on vested interests .Their top priority was restoration of their rule, so that they could enjoy pelf and power. Therefore, the major two political parties and their leadership in exile focused on riddance from the rule of Musharraf. This goal was achieved as a result of the February elections and then Musharraf’s resignation in August.
After it’s all a downward slide, and there seems to be no end to this.
It’s very sad that both military and civilian leaders, including many important institutions of the state, could not formulate a well-coordinated national plan to curb the terrorism. Nation is still wondering.
