President Zardari has said that Osama is history now and Pakistan is looking for a new chapter of relationship with USA. Such dismissive remarks can be passed only for a person who had been our enemy and had done us great harm. When did Osama ever do anything against Pakistan. He helped the Taliban to push the Russians out of Afghanistan to the great delight of the Americans. His differences with the Americans started only when he objected to US troops being based permanently in Saudi Arabia. Osama was not responsible for 9/11 but America used that as an excuse to invade and occupy Afghanistan with the covert help of Pakistan. That is when the hitherto friendly Taliban started attacking targets in Pakistan. But Osama was not even in Afghanistan then. The president is obviously saying things, as per his norm, which will please the Americans. People who do not learn from history, or even try to distort it, are destined to go on making blunders.
