CIA TO TOPPLE MUSHARRAF OF PAKISTAN?


On 4 September 2007, at least 25 people were killed and 68 injured in two bombings aimed at military intelligence targets in Pakistan's garrison city of Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad. Blasts hit Pakistan garrison town
There are a number of world leaders who, reportedly, were (1) put into power by the CIA and then (2) toppled by the CIA.
Think of Noriega, Suharto, Saddam Hussein, Marcos...

Pakistan's Musharraf may be about to be toppled.
In 2006, Musharraf wrote a book in which he claimed that Omar Sheikh, one of the primary financers of the 9/11 attacks, may have worked for British intelligence during the 1990s.

“It is believed in some quarters that while Omar Sheikh was at the LSE (London School of Economics) he was recruited by the British intelligence agency MI6,” Musharraf writes in his book, In the Line of Fire: A Memoir.

From US turns against Musharraf, Asia Times Online, January 12, 2006:

"According to a contact who spoke to Asia Times Online, a person close to the US Central Intelligence Agency paid a low-profile visit to New Delhi in the third week of December and briefed strategic planners on Washington's plan to try to curtail the role of the Pakistani army."

On 25 march 2007, the UK's Sunday Telegraph, reportedly close to MI6, stated:
"Two exiled former prime ministers of Pakistan will launch a joint attempt this week to drive the current president, Pervez Musharraf, from power. Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif agreed to join forces during a meeting in London after weeks of political crisis in Pakistan have left its military strongman with a tenuous grip on power."

According to http://www.dnaindia.com/ the CIA is in the process of trying to find a replacement for Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf. Reportedly, the CIA hopes to replace Musharraf with a military officer.

DailyNewsAnalysis India's source is 'a well placed diplomat'.


The US sent head-of-state hunters from the Central Intelligence Agency to scour the Pakistani military apparatus to identify a suitable replacement for General Pervez Musharraf.

The extraordinary recruitment mission — reflecting the seriousness of purpose and urgency with which the Bush administration wants to oust its ‘most valuable ally’ — was disclosed recently by a well-placed diplomatic source...

A team of CIA operatives was subsequently sent to the country to sort out pro-US army officers, one of whom could be considered Musharraf’s successor as the commander-in-chief.

Our government is getting ready to exit Musharraf of Pakistan. He is just the latest ally we have overthrown. These friendly allied leaders stood in the way of communist goals, and were all undercut by our State Dept. and CIA.
President Chang Ki-Chek, cut supplies off, led to defeat
President Rhee, US State tried to overthrow
President Diem, killed with US approval.
Shaw of Iran, overthrown
President Musharraf about to be overthrown . . . and possibly killed.

Grim.
