Former Pakistan President on School Attack, Handling Terrorism

According to the country's former president General Pervez Musharraf, yesterday's attack on a Pakistan school is not an abberation.

"It's a continuation off of whatever has been happening over the last 15 years in the region, in Afghanistan, and in our tribal agencies," he told New Day's Chris Cuomo.

While Musharraf agreed that something needs to be done to fight radicalism, saying, "the people of Pakistan want it," he made note of the different ways his country and the U.S. have dealt with terrorism in the past.

    Shame on the dirty politics played by ISI and supported by army leaders as Musharaf , the whole world explicitly know where the terrorism is nurtured, where the sanctuaries exist. I think Musharaf still emphasis that Osama was not in Pakistan and he does not know where he was living. Who support the Haqqani group and where the group is?. The Afghan Taliban was Pakistan's ISI gift to Afghanistan and to the world, where is Taliban Quetta Shuraa? We Afghans were always the victims of these double standard politics, we have always raised our voice that terrorism is not the solution for any nation. Those who support might cause a great danger to themselves.
