Now ISI wants to talk to India

As per Chindu journos, Nirupama Subramanian and Siddharth Varadarajan as reported in the Chindu article,
ISI chief to India: talk to us, we make policy too ISI wants to hold discussions.
Lt. Gen. Shuja Pasha made the out-of-the-box overture during a meeting earlier this month with the three Indian defence advisers representing the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force attached to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, The Hindu has learnt.

Nice to see Chindu breaking some news for a change. The best quote came from an Indian official,
The Research & Analysis Wing operates within the law and is subordinate to the government.
There, the government is subordinate to the ISI, which is a law unto itself.

LOL!!

"…Lt. Gen. Pasha came clean in stating that the ISI and the Pakistan Army were involved in framing Pakistan's India policy, along with the Foreign Office. He made the oblique suggestion that India deal directly with these three institutions if it had a similar three-way mechanism."

Again, LOL! Someone should tell this Pasha dude that it is precisely because we don't have such a "similar three way mechanism" that our country is much more stable that he can ever imagine his to be! No wonder that country is in chaos, eternally. Well, with three power centres (reports are also suggesting that there is a rift between Gilani and Zardari. If true that makes it four power centres!) operating parallelly, what else can we expect!!
