Pakistan's former spy chief terms Obama's speech 'disappointing'

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Islamabad, March 29, IRNA -- The speech by US President Barack Obama has not only disappointed many in Pakistan but proved that he is not different from his predecessors, a former Pakistani military spy chief said on Saturday.

"The speech of American president indicates that he is suffering from inferiority complex and leading towards imperial arrogance. The system has overshadowed him," said Lt. Gen. (retd) Hamid Gul.

The former director general of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) told reporters that increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan will only add to the problems of America and predicted a defeat for foreign forces within two years.

He said that no super power could change the destiny.

He said that the US interferes in affairs of other countries and even it opposes the restoration of judges sacked by former president Pervez Musharraf.

"But the US had to submit to the will of Pakistanis," Gul said.
