Rehman Malik's Day of Glory

The first time I have heard Col Raymond a.k.a. Rehman Malik say something intelligent AND witty.

This from Dawn reporting on an interview given by Pakistan's interior minister to the BBC:

Answering a question, Malik said the so-called unity in the extremists which began as the government increased its activities against Baitullah Mehsud was something the government had already anticipated. ‘Be it Gul Bahadur or Commander Nazeer, be it Qari Hussain or Baitullah or Hakimullah — they are all branches of the same tree. They all are hardcore terrorists who should be called Zaliman and not Taliban,’ Malik said.

Hear, hear!
