"Musharraf wanted to diffuse the multi-parties conference in London [a meeting of dozens of Pakistani politicians]. Before that he was using Lal Mosque to distract [from] the judicial crisis."
More from the article: The deceased Ghazi could be evil, so to say, but at the very least he would not lie to three TV channels "just moments before his death." He said it repeatedly that he wanted the government to allow media to come in to see for itself if what the regime was claiming had any connection with the reality.
If the government were true in its claims to foreign fighters and a cache of weapons in the mosque, it should have let the media in. What was it afraid of? It is not a blunder on the part of government. It was part of the strategic planning. With media's access, the regime's case would have fallen apart and it's lies about foreign fighters and weapons would have been exposed leaving it with no justification to launch the bloody assault and score points with its foreign masters. The negotiating ulema have also refuted the regimes claim that Ghazi has asked for safe passage for foreigners.
According to "Ishtiaq Ali Mehkri", news editor at Geo TV, the Lal Masjid standoff was a "masterpiece of intelligence agencies" and an "eyewash" to deflect attention from issues of national importance, especially the Supreme Court hearing of the petition of Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, whom Musharraf summarily suspended as chief justice.
Mekhri's views were endorsed by Hamid Mir, senior political analyst at the same TV channel. "Musharraf wanted to diffuse the multi-parties conference in London [a meeting of dozens of Pakistani politicians]. Before that he was using Lal Mosque to distract [from] the judicial crisis."
According to Mir, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, head of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League, who was sent to negotiate with the mosque administration, and who was about to resolve the issue in April, was "asked by someone very important to delay it".
Comment: Don't forget that it was Pakistan's security head who ordered the wire transfer to Atta right before the 9/11 false-flag operation. This operation was just more of that same imperialism. Also, don't forget that Pakistan's military was deep within Afghanistan along side the Taliban and al Qaeda when the U.S. Military was ordered to let them all leave Afghanistan to Pakistan and even help them to do it by flying many of them out on huge transport planes.
This is why Ron Paul and Cindy Sheehan have said there could be another false-flag operation in the U.S.
