Gilani and the genie

The story of the two wishes

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

The farce continues to remain with Yusuf Raza Gilani. The hapless Pakistani prime minister told his surprise guest from Washington DC that he was surprised at the recent raids by US forces into Pakistani territory.

Gilani said he had reminded the visiting US admiral on Wednesday that in his closed-door meeting during his recent trip to the US, President Bush had asked him to make two wishes which Bush was ready to accept in front of the media to please his guest from Islamabad.

I had told him that the first wish was to respect Pakistan’s sovereignty and the other was to respect Pakistan’s democracy,” Gilani told The News. [The News]
