Yesterday we published a letter from the Chief Justice of Pakistan who wrote to many global leaders defending the accusations made by the President of Pakistan General (RETD) Pervaiz Musharraf. I have today obtained a copy of the initial letter written by the President of Pakistan to the American Bar Association trying to defend his actions against the CJP since March 9th. It seems more like a rant in a futile attempt to salvage his tarnished image in front of the American lawyers.
I highly recommend reading both the letters as it then shows how weak of an argument Musharraf actually continues to have in regards to the suicidal steps he took back in March. Word for word, the charge sheet is based on the original Naeem Bukhari letter, but some how no one takes his name let alone give him credit for leading Musharraf down this path of destruction [ironic]. Sadly the evidence starts and ends on the letter, the remaining arguments are just an attempt by Musharraf to vindicate himself. All said its funny to watch him stumble across the 15 pages just trying to defend his actions – quite literally pleading innocence but failing miserably in the process
To better comprehend the entire fiasco, read all the documents attached here including the response by the CJP Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry which was published a day earlier

I feel its an important juncture to set a few facts straight. In the past few days a few events surrounding Musharraf’s misadventures into Europe, actually transpired into an interesting debate online, specially the incident where a Pakistani reporter asked the President a few tough questions in the UK, in response we were treated to a stand-up comedian Mush’ism comment ‘or mayray khayal mein us ko dou teen tikka b dain tou acha hai‘. We reacted vehemently against this incident, but a few handful of Musharraf supporters blamed instead the reporter for tarnishing the National Interest accusing him of washing Pakistan’s dirty laundry in front of the entire world.
This recent set of letters to the President of ABA by our President should leave us in no doubt that this state representative cares sh*t about National Interest, its his own personal vendetta being fought out under the Pakistani flag, and nothing else. So a friendly word of advise to the remaining proponents of Musharraf, lets not fool ourselves any longer about who is the valiant up-holder of Pakistan’s National Interest, its most definitely not Musharraf, he has been known to stab many in the back for the sake of his own personal agenda and we have ourselves a prime example here as it took him barely a week to stab you all as well in your valiant debate to defend him. I suspect we shall see many more in the future, so choose your horses (arguments) carefully, lest you be left ‘hangin’ next time around.
