As clean as a whistle buried in mud

Vir Sanghvi writes in the Hindistan Times:
It has long been an article of faith among Western politicians that while there may be the odd extremist organisation in Pakistan, the government is clean as a whistle and that General Musharraf himself is a kindly, philanthropic figure, fighting the good fight on behalf of his Western mentors.

In fact, as India has been warning for nearly two decades, this view of the Pakistani establishment is not only dangerously naïve, it can also have fatal consequences for helpless civilians in the West and in India.
Sanghvi's article deals with the double standards of the West when it comes to terrorism; a common subject, but he makes the case especially well. Read the full piece.
