The State of Pakistan is equally responsible for the mess it allowed to be created within its region. Unlike Washington that has always had a flexible, well though narrative to shape the environment, Islamabad has never cared or bothered to evolve a proper cohesive plan. The entire operation in the past 10 years has been reactive and the sole domain of the army. The establishment ever evaluated alarm bells being raised by both the Pakistani and foreign analysts. It seems that having remained in constant touch with the USA through military diplomacy and Foreign Office, the ability to think clearly was eclipsed by being an insider and exclusivity syndrome. Sermons by the American Ambassadors, visiting dignitaries and the façade of aid also played its part in lowering the guard. Hence, step by step, the Pakistani leadership allowed the entire backwash of US operations to be pushed into the country under a misperceived strategic concept and false assurances.
