Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gilani has announced today that he has accepted the resignation of Ambassador Husain Haqqani, ending his tenure as Ambassador to the United States.
And while Haqqani initially offered the resignation late last week with the assumption that it would end the scandal over the “coup memo” he allegedly dictated on behalf of President Zardari, Gilani has insisted it will not, as says Haqqani’s resignation is just the first step toward a high-level inquiry into it.
The “memo” was given to Admiral Michael Mullen in the wake of the assassination of Osama bin Laden, and urged Mullen to use the US military in a move against the Pakistani military’s leadership. In return it promised Zardari would replace the removed leaders with more pro-US figures.
Zardari has denied any involvement in the memo, as did Haqqani, even though the courier later said Haqqani actually dictated the memo directly to him. The Pentagon maintains that it never took the memo seriously.

A US Marine was reported killed on Monday, November 21, by small arms fire in Kandahar. The eighth US soldier to die in Kandahar within the last thirteen days of November. PBS reported that 397 US soldiers have died in Afghanistan this year while AP reports at least 383 which is closer to the number reported by the Department of Defense in their daily news releases.
Slowly Musharraf era and Zardari intrigues and traitors are coming to an end. As PPP came in power always through american intrigues i.e. CIA plot and I think americans if they go out of Pakistan then pakistan will be better off as they destroyed us totally. The same story as latin america as they kicked out america are developming very fast and hope one dy they will challenge america as during my university life in Germany all the south americans hated like a virous and in real terms america is a virous for developing countries.
Haqqani is a biggest agent of america and a traitor must get life sentance.
May be Zardari too. as enough is enough.
The second Nato soldier reported at AntiWar on Tuesday, Noember 22 was identified by the US Department of Defense. A Marine died in Helmand province on November 18, one of three US soldiers to die on that day and the 14th US soldier to die in Afghanistan in November.
