Hold your horses! GOTUS is pulling a fast one on us!

 
The United States Department of State lists a set of three criteria for designating an entity as a  FTO.  Admn. Mullen, while describing the Haqqani Network as a "veritable arm" of the ISI, used the expression "violent extremism," and NOT "terrorism," as a sleight of words to provide Pakistan plausible deniability and full and complete protection from being designated a FTO. Some very smart legal eagle GOTUS brain came up with Mullen's phrase of "violent extremism." 
 
The definition of the phrase "violent extremism" does not meet the Legal Criteria no. 2 that sates "The organization must engage in terrorist activity, as defined in section 212 (a)(3)(B) of the INA (8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(3)(B)),* or terrorism, as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989 (22 U.S.C. § 2656f(d)(2)),** or retain the capability and intent to engage in terrorist activity or terrorism. "
 
Voilà , Pakistan did NOT commit "terrorism" when it helped kill American troops.  Case shut, Pakistan continues as our importan non-nato ally. Murderous Pakistani army once again goes scot free, protected and shielded by the GOTUS.  
 
CH's, Curtis's et al articles are all farce!  In  a few days time, expect a glib State Dept. spokespreson take pains to parse "violent extremism" as meaning different from to "engage in terrorist activity" as a rationale to protect Pakistan.  As I had said earlier, Pakistan is untouchable. Slap me silly!

If PA is reading this, I hope they wouldn't mind wire transferring appropriate "consultation fee" to me. 
 
Legal Criteria for Designation under Section 219 of the INA as amended

It must be a foreign organization.
The organization must engage in terrorist activity, as defined in section 212 (a)(3)(B) of the INA (8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)(3)(B)),* or terrorism, as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989 (22 U.S.C. § 2656f(d)(2)),** or retain the capability and intent to engage in terrorist activity or terrorism.
The organization's terrorist activity or terrorism must threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security (national defense, foreign relations, or the economic interests) of the United States.
