#5 They'll try and blame the Indians. Some of the stupider Pakis will believe them, but nobody else.

#7 Pakistan is doing everything it can to find something to blame India for, to take the pressure off them to make changes in their government. We'll continue to see things like this fairly often, I'm afraid.

#9 Yesterday’s attackers struck at 8:30 a.m. as motorcycle police and a truck of the police anti-terrorist Elite Force escorted the bus to Gaddafi Stadium for the day’s Test match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. A rocket fired at the bus missed and the team escaped as the gunmen and security forces exchanged fire. All 12 attackers escaped, according to police.

“The gunmen were very cool, firing and then moving and then firing again,” said eyewitness Habib Akram, the bureau chief of Pakistan’s Samaa television news channel. Akram’s office overlooks the Liberty Chowk traffic circle. “There was hardly any return fire from the police.”

Chris Broad, the former England batsman and referee for the match who came under fire in the attack, said the “presidential style” security promised by the Pakistani authorities had not lived up to its billing. The driver of his minibus was killed and another passenger seriously wounded.

“I’m extremely angry that we were offered high-level security and in our hour of need that security vanished,” Broad said in a televised press conference on his return to the U.K.

“Questions need to be asked of the Pakistan security forces,” he said. “They left the scene and left us to be sitting ducks.”

#11  the "presidential style" security promised by the Pakistani authorities had not lived up to its billing.

India protected the English cricket team in Calcutta with 5000 policemen, snipers all along the route and at the stadium and a bodyguard of 300 commandos from Delhi.

Pakistani security for the Lankan team was a bus with Police?
