To the Editor:
     When he was head of Pakistan's ISI, general Ashfaq Kayani cultivated ties to elements of the Taliban both for gathering intelligence and as proxies against India.  When he became head of Pakistan's armed forces, he maintained these ties both for the old reasons and additionally to keep his own head of ISI in check. Now, general Kayani is running Pakistan while mr. Zardari has been relegated to a purely ceremonial role of head of state, and his pet jackals are spreading domestic mayhem.  Does he still hold the leash? Do they need him to feed them anymore?
  Pakistanis have tolerated military meddling in their democracy again and again because the military promised order. Now that the military's pets are amok spreading chaos, the Pakistani people will have to judge again where their allegiances lie.
