‘Kayani has learnt his lesson from Musharraf’


LAHORE: In another disclosure, WikiLeaks has quoted the head of the French Interagency on Afghanistan-Pakistan cell, Jasmine Zerinini, as saying that Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani has learnt his lesson from former president Pervez Musharraf and is staying behind the scenes in Pakistan.
Zernini also told a US diplomat that General Kayani was manipulating the government and parliament into preventing change on Pakistan’s policy in the tribal belt. She added that Kayani also had a role in stirring up controversy regarding the Kerry-Lugar law – that ties continued US aid to increased civilian control of the military.
Jasmine Zerinini also argued that the West had missed its opportunity to push the Pakistani military to crush the Afghan Taliban taking refuge in tribal areas.
