Pakistani authorities intercepted a congratulatory message from Baitullah Mehsud to the coordinator of the murder of Benazir Bhutto. Text from AP below:
Maulvi Sahib: Peace be on you.
Mehsud: Peace be on you, too.
Maulvi Sahib: How are you Emir Sahib?
Maulvi Sahib: Congratulations. I arrived now tonight.
Mehsud: Congratulations to you, too.
Maulvi Sahib: They were our men there.
Mehsud: Who were they?
Maulvi Sahib : There were Saeed, the second was Badarwala Bilal and Ikramullah was also there.
Mehsud: The three did it?
Maulvi Sahib: Ikramullah and Bilal did it.
Mehsud: Then congratulations to you again.
Maulvi: Where are you? I want to meet with you?
Mehsud: I am in Makin. Come I am at Anwar Shah’s home.
Maulvi Sahib: OK I will come.
Mehsud: Do not inform their family presently.
Maulvi Sahib: Right.
Mehsud: It was a spectacular job. They were very brave boys who killed her.
Maulvi Sahib: Praise be to God. I will give you more details when I come.
Mehsud: I will wait for you. Congratulation once again.
Maulvi Sahib: Congratulations to you as well.
Mehsud: Any service?
Mauvliv: Thank you very much?
Mehsud: Peace be on you.
Maulvi: Same to you.
This intercept coupled with Al Qaeda’s claim of credit for the attack shows that Baitullah Mehsud is firmly allied with Bin Laden and Zawahiri, and that my prior speculation that he perhaps was playing his own game for power was wrong. Baitullah Mehsud is owned by foreign Al Qaeda miscreants bent on the destruction of Pakistan.
Pakistanis want to disbelieve that Al Qaeda exists, that they are a real threat to their country, and that they could have turned on their creators and former hosts. They can’t believe that Pakistanis would actually turn against Pakistan. It’s like Dr. Frankenstein’s eyes widening in disbelieve right before the monster slays him.
They had better start believing because AQ and their handful ISI tag-alongs have no place else to go now. Pakistan’s creation, these death crows, are home to roost – destroying Pakistan is now do or die for Al Qaeda, and Ayman’s called for Jihad.
