The main question is will they follow thru with it. What happens when you keep terrorists on the pay roll is they come back to bite you.

Chairing a meeting of civil bureaucrats in Islamabad, President Zardari said the government would convert the challenge facing the country into an opportunity with efficient delivery of services for the benefit of the people.The president urged the parliamentarians to play their role in the rehabilitation of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) of Swat.
