(Pak Destiny) Hussain Haqqani, former ambassador to the US, has turned out to be a traitor by drafting Trump’s anti-Pakistan policy. And former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry is responsible for that.
This Iftikhar had let Haqqani go scot-free in Memogate despite treason charges against him. Perhaps Iftikhar obliged the Americans in this case.
Haqqani has taken credit of authoring US policy President Donald Trump. Although Haqqani tweeted saying “Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja should deal with the policy instead of trying to bully an exiled Pakistani on twitter by declaring that I authored the document.”
Trump accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorists through “safe havens” in the country.
The former ambassador to the US is not new to controversy. In March this year, he admitted facilitating the stationing of American special operations and intelligence personnel on Pakistani soil and forging links that eventually allowed Washington to carry out the raid in Abbottabad to eliminate Osama bin Laden.
In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, Haqqani had also indicated that while Islamabad was ‘officially kept out of the loop’, the Pakistan People’s Party-led government was aware of both the developments.
Had Haqqani be indicted and stopped from leaving the country in Memogate today he would not have been spitting venom on Pakistan. Advocate Asam Jehangir was Haqqani’s counsel in Memogate. – Pak Destiny
