Asif Ali Zardari - The Man Without The Mask. Yet!

Pakistan's President has backtracked. He denies his statements made in the interview given in the Wall Street Journal and the standard "out of context" applies.

Here is the interview on the WSJ.

Some time ago he was again in the thick of controversy over his alleged remark ("Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you") when he met Sarah Palin.

Zardari is not a seasoned politician. He has not yet learnt the tricks of the trade. The mask is not yet in its place. And so what he says comes straight from his heart. These few initial days we can get the glimpse of how an ordinary citizen of Pakistan thinks. Not very different from how an ordinary Indian thinks.

Watch him closely for some more days. For shortly he will learn how to come across as dignified political person. It will be Yes Prime Minister all over again. Except that it would be a ruthless Pakistan establishment house training the President.
