Khalid Hasan on Pakistani NeoCons

Veteran journalist Khalid Hasan calls Shireen Mazari and Ahmad Quraishi Pakistani neocons.

One cybercon who answers to the name Ahmed Quraishi writes on December 24, “We have a government with shady characters in key places, strongly backed by the Bush administration, acting and behaving as if they were representing a US occupation government in Pakistan.” Under “recommendation”, he proposes, “We need to start a witch-hunt in Pakistan to cleanse our academia and public life of such self-haters and defeatists who poison the minds of young Pakistanis about their homeland. Such academics and human rights activists should not be allowed to hide behind the freedom of expression.” The two “traitors” he refers to are Pervaiz Hoodbhoy and Asma Jehangir.

The other one he singles out is Shireen Mazari:

It is pointless to inform her that the envoys’ conference had been scheduled for some time and was not summoned because of Mumbai. Mazari also wrote that “in the Mumbai aftermath, we chose to prevent our allies from rallying around us in the UN Security Council.”

Ann Coulter, I should explain, is a neocon American figure who urged the bombing of Mecca and who wrote, “Liberals are always against America. They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America’s self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant.”

Baithak will wait with eager anticipation when Khalid Hasan would come out and declare ambassador Hussain Haqqani our NeoCon in DC.
