Every Politician Of Pakistan Thanks USA For Election Win Even Zardari
PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari thanked the US delegation for his election win, Wikileaks revealed.
A diplomatic cable sent by the then US ambassador Anne Patterson to Washington on 30 May, 2008 spoke of a meeting between US Representatives Shiff and Schwarts and Asif Ali Zardari along with his foreign policy team.
Zardari thanked the US for its support of credible parliamentary elections which brought his party to power. “We are here because of you” he said.
Zardari said that the war against terrorism was Pakistan’s war and blamed President Pervez Musharraf for not taking enough responsibility for the war on terror in Pakistan. Zardari said the public, instead, believed Pakistanis were dying for the US.
