IF this is true (one never knows in this dirty business) then its bad news for Pakistan. Some people think its mostly bad news for the Americans and feel delighted at that, but I am one of those who thinks its actually worse for Pakistanis. Because it means the old ISI paradigm is alive and well and that paradigm is going to lead to a new and much bigger Afghan war and eventually to war with India. The whole thing is based on the mistaken notion that India is a soft target and will never cross the ISI’s red lines. Unfortunately, the ISI’s own pets will cross all red lines and will force India, Iran, Russia and NATO to cooperate against Pakistan and win or lose, that will not be pleasant.
