Pak does a back flip for Saudi Arabia

It was really funny reading this news in the Dawn.

Pakistan had captured, interrogated and sent packing to Saudi Arabia, suspected Al-Qaeda operatives responsible for the failed attack on their deputy Interior Minister Prince Nayef in Jeddah last month.

The Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik had visited Saudi Arabia end of last month where he was presented with evidence of this linkage between the failed attack and the sons of a Yemeni Al-Qaeda leader. And exactly ONE month later Pakistan not only captures, not only interrogates but also packs these guys to Saudi Arabia. This, even though Pakistan and Saudi Arabia don't have an extradition treaty.

While on the other side, the Pakistani government leaves no stone unturned, giving excuses on why the Mumbai attack masterminds need to be subject to the lengthy process of Pakistan's judicial system. What a whole bunch of BS!

And the Interior Minister and the Foreign Minster of Pakistan have the audacity to shamelessly stand in front of the press complaining of India's impatience and disregard for the rule of law and judicial trial.

I am amazed how these guys can sleep at night. The rate at which the Pakistani leadership bends for Saudi Arabia and China and the United States and the Taliban and whatever else, it will soon become a Pakistani Circus of sorts.
