So the Big Bad Wolf (you have to forgive me my fairytale names here, I cannot help myself, the scenario is such) is gone, buried at sea or blown into smithereens or vaporized or transformed or made invisible- who knows. We shall never really know. Was it a covert US operation and they didn’t actually know? We dont know that either. Was it a Pak led find and the US takes the credit? Hmm. Your guess is as good as mine. Despite having some 100 channels and numerous dedicated news sites and blogs, nobody knows anything and everyone knows everything. That is how it stands right now. We have to believe what is fed to us but what is fed to us has more holes than Swiss cheese, especially if you have more than an ounce of working grey matter.
Perhaps its singularly the fault of the Voldermortian governement at the helm of our ship right now. Or perhaps the story started many years ago with the likes of Gen Zia and his best friend Charlie Wilson making it worse. Don’t know. Don’t care. But thanks to them and many more, I have zero faith in anything and everything that has them connected to it. It can be as simple as a promise of a road being built to as grand and symbolic as peace or catching OBL. But if it reeks of them, it reeks of lies.
Dark times ahead before we see the light. Can’t believe I just said that.
