John Kerry and his protocol in Pakistan
February 17, 2011 25 Comments
Mr Kerry who got popularity in media via Kerry Lugar Bill related to Pakistan aid package was immediately sent to Pakistan for some under cover deals with Pakistan establishment on Raymond case. Surely he is the senior Senator from US and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He became the senior Senator from Massachusetts after the 2009 death of Senator Edward Kennedy.In US he is considered as most senior and richest senator who once run for President position .
The meeting of a senator to high protocols of Pakistan is just indicating the lower profile of Pakistani government in front of their master like allies where our COAS,PM,President are all time spared and available to US officials belonging to foreign secretory and a senator who is trying to bully the Pakistan and Pakistani nation on day light murders of Pakistani civilians in their home ground.
These were same Americans who were least bothered about US ambassador and his colleagues killed in mysterious air crash with Zia but for the last days the 24 hrs follow-up of senior US officials and even comments of Obama in his favor is serious indication of his importance for CIA and US officials.
Why US is putting unreasonable pressure in front of international world and media for favoring this killer.?
If our Ambassador Haqqani would kill two US citizens through his vehicle or in frustration that he is facing for last months on many issues then US would give me same immunity??
These are worth questions one should think and there is no harm if we request to our all ambassadors to try to use this blanket immunity which is surely equivalent to license to kill to their respective deputed countries under diplomatic power through Vienna convention.
Upon arriving in Pakistan late Tuesday, Kerry, a Democrat from political background,he reached out to Pakistan’s government and people. He expressed regret over the loss of Pakistani lives and promised that the U.S. will conduct a criminal investigation into the shooting if Davis is released.
Interestingly he reiterated this stance after meeting with Kerry — an indication that the American politician may have a hard time convincing Pakistan to free the free killer Davis..The Pakistani government is also under intense public pressure; crowds of protesters have urged the government in recent weeks to try Davis.
The US administration insists obstinately that Davis was part of the embassy’s “administrative and technical staff,” which means he might have been involved with security, but conversely Pakistani media with aid of” intelligence agencies leaks ” have focused on him being a former Special Forces soldier who runs an American “protective services” company with his wife.
Although the U.S. says he’s an embassy employee, he apparently had been attached for a while to the consulate in Lahore, further adding to the confusion about his status since consulate employees do not always get the same level of diplomatic protection as embassy staffers.
But Kerry’s upbeat attitude contrasted with a sense of internal divisions within Pakistan’s government over how to handle the case.
The obtained photocopy of an ID and a salary document that Davis apparently gave Pakistani authorities, showing that he was scheduled to be paid $200,000 from Sept. 21, 2010, until Sept. 20, 2011, for “overseas protective secret services.,” training, administration work and insurance and travel expenses.
Davis is identified as a contractor of Defence department on his ID card.
On the other side religious groups who are the main targets as a part of elimination process under theme of War on terror have got an opportunity to further instigate the frustration of Pakistanis increasing day by day owing to worst managerial and economic conditions of state actors.Photos of protesters hoisting banners that read “Hang Raymond Davis!” appear every few days in Pakistani newspapers. Islamic parties capable of mobilizing thousands of demonstrators have vowed to rally against the government if Davis is freed.
There are bright chances that Raymond would get freedom after deals between US and victims of shooting who might accept heavy blood money under the Law of Qisas and court will have no option left except to sign his liberty cheque. But on overall basis the credits of this misadventure would be cashed by Shairf brothers, Punjab govt strong stance and judiciary.All situation is controlled by their seemingly strict stance and PPP ex foreign minister also joined them against his party wishes .
Unlucky Zardari group is on his routine remedy of 100 onions and 100 shoes by the grace of intelligence agencies who had put them in such high offices they also think “Democracy is best revenge for People of Pakistan.”
