Former president of Pakistan Ret: General Pervez Musharraf Monday clarified that he never said that security of Ms. Benazir Bhutto was dependent on her relations with him.
?I never told Ms. Benazir Bhutto that her security was dependent on her relations with me,? he clarified while talking to media here. I can never utter such cheap words, he added.
He responding to a book authored by ?David E Sanger? and said: ? I don?t know what the writer was trying to prove but what he has written is far from the fact and completely distorted?. ?May be he was trying to create sensation.? He in?strong tone said he the writer should have shown some character and its all Rubbish.
?The allegations being leveled against the armed forces and intelligence agencies of the country will lead to the defeat in war on terror,? he feared.
He came hard on the agreement reached between NWFP government and Tehreek Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi, saying it was totally unjustified in the backdrop of what the terrorists have been doing against the law enforcing agencies and unarmed civilians of the country.
The former president said attempts are being made to malign the armed forces.
Pakistani Media is slaming Ret: General Musharraf like as if he is a street boy, who just committed a crime. The same people who used to bow before him and used to say poems and write endless articles of praises are abusing him. TV channels like GEO are talking to so called experts journalists and trying to prove thing they DON’T even have any idea of.
General Musharraf too in his capacity as president of Pakistan did not show this kind of anger when Newsweek called Pakistan the most dangerous nationa in the world however when it came over to him he was quick to respond and was angry.
Who is David Sangar
David E. Sanger was born July 5, 1960 in White Plains, New York ?is White House correspondent for The New York Times. A 1982 graduate of Harvard College, Sanger has been writing for Times for over 24 years covering New York, Tokyo and most recently, Washington, DC. He has reported on such issues as foreign policy, globalization, nuclear proliferation, Asian affairs, and the revitalization of Boston’s Parker House Hotel.
Before coming to the White House, Sanger was a correspondent and then chief of The New York Times bureau in Tokyo. There, he developed a specialization in writing on the influence of economics and foreign policy, and the relationships between the United States and its major allies, a subject he continues to pursue in Washington. Although he was never able to actually learn the Japanese language, Sanger immersed himself in the culture, history and politics of Japan. Sanger embraced the Japanese economic model while it continued to fail in many Southeast Asian countries.
He left Asia in 1994 to become the chief Washington economic correspondent, later being named senior writer and, in 1999, joined the ranks of Elisabeth Bumiller as White House correspondent. Former president George W. Bush, who commonly nicknames those with whom he has close contact, has nicknamed Sanger “that guy from Gerald M. Boyd’s (managing editor of The Times) paper.”
