Has Pakistani 'cooperation' outlived its usefulness?
It seems the tide is turning against Pakistan in the global disinformation game. The country is fast turning from being portrayed as a friendly dictatorship dutifully bombing mullahs in the North West Frontier Province to one that is portrayed as actually collaborating with the Taliban to attack Western forces. The recent killing of Pakistani troops by missile from US predator aircraft did not go down well with the new government in Islamabad. It seems that if the obedient dictator is sidelined by a democratic vote then that is unacceptable and the Pakistani government must take note that attitudes in Washington are hardening against it. No doubt the previous links of the ISI as Taliban sponsors will now be trotted out for a fresh airing despite the former being virtually a branch of the CIA in Pakistan.
