    You want me to go into business with the Israelis?

    Just for this one purpose, yes, Mr. President.

    The Israelis have the largest stockpile of Soviet-made weapons in friendly hands.

    I know that.

    I need to trust that this arrangement will remain secret.

    Pakistan and Israel would have to appear to be enemies in the public eye.

    Yeah, I don't think that's a tough sell.

    You have authority to do this?

    None whatsoever. In fact, I'm pretty close to violating the Logan Act.

    Well, I don't know what that is.

    But, Charlie. Yes, sir.

    If I see one fucking Star of David on a crate...

    You won't. I promise.

    Hey. Excuse me.

    You want me to take a look at those remarks?

    Why? Just... Well, your introduction,

    want me to look it over? It's an introduction, Charlie. I'll be fine.

    Today we honor President Zia ul-Haq of Pakistan.

    Before we go any further, I would like you all to know this,

    President Zia did not kill Bhutto.

    In the time that he's been President,

    the fortunes of Pakistan have changed radically.

    I've asked you all here today...

    You disappeared.

    Well, they weren't selling alcohol in there.

    It's a traditional Pakistani gathering.

    You think they might be a lot happier over there

    if they could just get women and booze in the same room at the same time?

    I think they'd be a whole lot happier over there

    if the Communists got out.

    "Zia did not kill Bhutto. "

    That's not something you usually hear in introductory remarks.
