Just two days after the gunmen’s siege in Mumbai ended, Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari went on CNN’s Larry King Live to plead his case. Even before the Indian authorities had brought the rampage to an end, they were laying blame on their neighbor to the north. And Zardari wanted the world to know they were wrong. “This is not the time to point fingers,” Zardari protested. “The state of Pakistan is in no way responsible.”
Instead, Zardari said, “I think these are stateless actors who have been operating all throughout the region. .”
