I have been trying since long to convey a message to the Americans that the direct contacts with the people of tribal areas are a must for winning the war on terrorism. It never was my desire to become a leader, but now I have no other option except to jump into the politics. If the US vice president is saying that Osama bin Laden and some other dreaded terrorists have been hiding in tribal areas, then the US administration must hold direct talks with the people of tribal areas. This is the only solution to the problem of terrorism.

It is astonishing to note that the US administration has been giving huge amounts to the corrupt Pakistani rulers for killing the people of tribal areas. If that amount is allocated for the welfare of the poor people of tribal areas, they will be praying for the peace and prosperity of Americans. Why Americans are allowing their government to use their money for killing innocent people? According to my observation, the security forces have been killing only innocent people while terrorists have still been enjoying their lives in their hideouts.

Now I think someone will convey a message to US President Barack Obama to hold direct talk with me if he is interested in arresting or killing dreaded terrorists. Now the people of tribal areas are ready to hand over dreaded terrorists to the US if they have really been living in their areas. I also want to play a role, a positive role. I think the US adminstration can tell the Pakistani government to leave the tribal areas, as they have failed in evolving a system of goverance for the areas. If the US administration does this job then the tribesmen will certainly hand over Osama bin Laden to them if he is really in tribal areas.

Most of the time the US officials enjoy their dinners and lunches with their corrupt friends in Islamabad and Lahore. I think there is no logic for holding talks on tribal areas in Islamabad or Lahore. I think Barack Obama is a honest man and he will hold talks with honest people in Pakistan and tribal areas.

Now I am offering myself for the job. Just give me a few months for clearing tribal areas from terrorists. Some five years ago during a meeting with CIA officials in the US Embassy in Islamabad, I asked them to give me just one month for clearing tribal areas from terrorists. That was the time when the terrorists were being shifted to tribal areas. I have told them that Pakistani officials have been deceiving them. The US administration has wasted over $10 billion during eight years without any result. Now the US administration must change its attitude. I am hopeful someone among you will convey my message to the US administration headed by Barack Obama.
