Obama should learn lessons from Holbrooke: Baloch


LAHORE: Barack Obama needs to learn a lesson from Richard Holbrooke’s last words and should pull out forces from Afghanistan, Secretary General Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Liaquat Baloch said while talking to party workers on Thursday. The JI leader also urged Pak army chief General Kiyani to review the present policy of making the army a sacrificial goat to serve US’ interests.
Holbrooke would have witnessed American defeat in Afghanistan had he lived for a few more months, Baloch said, adding that US would have fled from Afghanistan had Pakistan not helped. The present government would lose its public support if it continues to support US, he said, adding that the killing of innocent Pakistanis in drone attacks needs to stop.
