Pakistan Elections: Hamid Gul Also Challenges Gen. Kiani

Hamid Gul, former Lt. Gen, former head of ISI, former mentor of Imran Khan, who created IJI (Islami Jamhoori Ittehad) a coalition that brought down Benazir's government and ushered in Sharif, reveals himself as a Mullah Omar/Khomeini clone finally.

Only last week he wrote to Irshad Ahmed Haqqani the senior columnist of Jang denying he was an instrument of Gen Zina ul Haq in creating IJI. When confronted, he was still in denial, saying he was only following orders. All this while he was playing democracy. Now he reveals his sly approach, cleverly couching it as hypotheses.

His interview with Carol Off of CBS can be seen here:

Former chief of Pakistan's powerful Inter-Services Intelligence has said, "an Iran-like revolution" is possible in the country if President Pervez Musharraf does not step down immediately.

"We don't want the army and people to be clashing on the streets. That would be a disaster -- a civil war or if we are lucky a revolution, something like the Iranian revolution (against the Shah in 1979)," he said.
