In one of the biggest terrorist attacks in Pakistan’s history, over 60 were killed today in a massive bombing at the Islamabad Marriott. I spent a lot of time at this hotel in 2006. It was the only major Western hotel in town, and they even had a sushi restaurant. Once I saw Ben Kinglsey in the lobby; he’d been in Kashmir, unleashing his inner-Ghandi after an earthquake killed 70,000. The whole place was crawling with international sketch balls—warlords and defense contractors, spies and Chinese hookers, Citi bankers and Saudi sheiks. Oh, and you could buy hash from the concierge.
