Around Pakistan

In Swat, it looks like Maulana Fazalullah is hearing footsteps: Close aides of Fazalullah nabbed.

The security forces early Monday morning during a search operation at Chuprial area in Matta Tehsil apprehended 35 militants including a close aide of rebellious cleric Mulvi Fazallullah.

According to a press release of Mingora Media Centre, Moulvi Habib was a close companion of Maulana Fazalullah and an active supporter of the decree issued by his leader for beheading the government officials and suicide attacks.

You're next Maulana boy. (Maybe the newly reopened Geo TV will film your takedown., MF.)

Islamabad is the next stop for Bhutto's 15yo would-be assassin (he was next in line if this attack had failed) and his handler. BTW - Their next target? The US Consulate General in Karachi. Her name? Kay L. Anske. Hey, wait a minute! I thought that Moslems didn't kill women? Lucky for Kay, it was determined that her security was too tight and the Peace Loving bombers went onto the next, next target and that was an Ashura procession in Dera Ismail Khan.

Speaking of Islamabad, I wonder why a San Francisco public relations firm would travel there, don't you? Ogilvy, Public Relations Firm worldwide-San Francisco meets Election Commission Secretary.

A three-member delegation from Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, San Francisco CA, USA called on Secretary Election Commission of Pakistan, Kanwar Dilshad here on Saturday and discussed matters relating to the conduct of General Elections, 2007-08.


In Waziristan, Chaghlamai has been purged of miscreants. Including some "key commanders".
Speaking of key commanders - US CENTCOM chief William Fallon will be in Islamabad for "one day only" to discuss PAK-US relations, Pakistan's role in the war on terror and the situation along the Afghan-Pak border will be discussed. Which is a good thing because gunships are pounding a terrorist stronghold in Wana and the natives are in a huff about an alleged UK Koran desecration right along that border. He will meet with Musharraf's over at Army: Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani.

And where in the world is Pervez Musharraf? President Musharraf takes off on 4-nation visit. And why yes, Davos IS on the schedule.

President Pervez Musharraf left here Sunday for an eight-day visit to Belgium, France, Switzerland and the United Kingdom to improve Pakistan’s image in the European countries as well as in the world and clear certain misperceptions.“I am going to meet the foreign relations committee of the European Union, which is an important international player. We want to clear certain misperceptions of all the happenings in Pakistan and the region”, the President told the mediapersons here at Chaklala Airbase, as he left for Brussels on the first leg of his four-nation visit.
