Were there any reservation from the so-called Defenders of our Ideological Boundaries [like in the news above] on these VISITS????it imposes strong checks on the country’s security matrix. [Army top brass to scrutinise US aid bill By Baqir Sajjad Syed Wednesday, 07 Oct, 2009 | 07:09 AM PST]
Where is CJ of Supreme Court and his suo moto notice???

Seven-year-old Saud Bugti’s father was picked up by secret police on a street corner in Karachi last November. No one has heard from him since. He has joined the ranks of Pakistan’s ‘disappeared’ – victims of the country’s brutal attempts to wage war on both al-Qaida and those who fail to support the government. But how many innocent people are being caught up in this? And what is America’s connection to the barbaric torture of suspects? Declan Walsh reports

Why are the courts silent over the missing? By Omar R. Quraishi

At least then — not sure about now — the court could see through these tactics and the fact that they were a blatant violation of one of the cardinal rights guaranteed to citizens under the constitution and by the law — the writ of habeas corpus — and kept on asking the government for answers. This eventually bore fruit — though not personally for Mrs Janjua. Several of those who had disappeared turned up at their homes, dropped off quietly by their captors while some were produced before the court. Then there is the case of Saud Memon, said to be a well-off businessman and a major financier of the militant group whose members were allegedly involved in Daniel Pearl’s murder (the house where the reporter was kept and eventually killed, police claim, was owned by this man). He was reported missing for almost four years and was eventually produced when the Supreme Court began taking interest in cases of the missing. He was brought in a wheelchair, and according to newspaper reports, he weighed a mere 80 pounds had lost his memory and could not recognize his own family members. He had earlier been released and left on some street by his captors in terrible health. He died a few days later.

Army top brass to scrutinise US aid bill By Baqir Sajjad Syed Wednesday, 07 Oct, 2009 | 07:09 AM PST


According to sources, the bill appears unpalatable, not just because of its feared impact upon the nation’s sovereignty, but primarily because it imposes strong checks on the country’s security matrix.

Its stated objectives are supporting democratic institutions; assisting efforts for expanding the rule of law and promotion of human rights;

Harvard Law School is not just an Ordinary Pakistani College e.g. Sirajud Dawla College Liaquatabad. Harvard Law School has produced numerous leaders in American law and politics, including many more U.S. Supreme Court justices and U.S. Senators than any other law school. I wonder why didn’t any of the Prominent American Member from the same Harvard Law School raise any voice against the ongoing violation of Pakistan’s Air Space by their country i.e. USA and that too because they had invited our CJ for offerring him Award of Harvard Law School Medal of Freedom. The Harvard Law School [as per my poor memory] didn’t ever lodge any protest against the Violation of International Law by the USA which they have been doing since long. So much for the respect for the Law by Harvard Law School.
I wonder, did Mr Samad Khurram or any other born again Ram Jeth Malanis in Harvard Law School even try to meet the Former Law Graduates of Harvard Law School [and believe me these Former Graduates are the backbone of American Politics and Establishment and many amongst them are in US Central Intelligence Agency as well] to lodge even a peaceful protest against US Forces’ daily violation of Pakistan’s Airspace and these violation also culminates in many innocent deaths in NWFP’s Tribal Belt.

Alberto R. Gonzales was the 80th Attorney General of the United States. Gonzales was appointed to the post in February 2005 by President George W. Bush.
Elliott Abrams is an American lawyer who has served in foreign policy positions for two Republican U.S. Presidents, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. He is widely labeled as a leading neoconservative. President George W. Bush appointed Abrams to the post of Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Democracy, Human Rights, and International Operations at the National Security Council on 25 June 2001.
Robert Bruce Zoellick was the eleventh president of the World Bank, a position he has held since July 1, 2007.[1] He was previously a managing director of Goldman Sachs,[2] United States Deputy Secretary of State (resigning on July 7, 2006) and U.S. Trade Representative, from February 7, 2001 until February 22, 2005.
President George W. Bush nominated Zoellick on May 30, 2007 to replace Paul Wolfowitz as President of the World Bank. On June 25, 2007, Zoellick was approved by the World Bank’s executive board. He is a NEOCON AND HARD CORE PRO ISRAELI ZIONIST [CJ Iftikhar Chaudhary and Samad Khurram enjoy excellent company]
