Pakistan’s ISI supported Kabul attacks: US admiral

Mike Mullen says Pakistan’s intelligence service supports Afghan insurgent network


 

The senior-most military officer in the United States has accused Pakistan’s intelligence agency of supporting last week’s attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. Adm. Mike Mullen, speaking to a panel of American senators, said the Haqqani network that carried out the attack is “a veritable arm of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Agency.” Pakistan has firmly denied the alleged connection, saying that Mullen’s statement was “irresponsible.” At least 25 people died during the Sept. 22 attack, including 11 civilians. The ordeal lasted 20 hours, as insurgents attacked NATO headquarters and the U.S. embassy in Kabul. Mullen also told the Senate panel that there is “credible intelligence” suggesting the Haqqani network was also behind the high profile attack on Kabul’s Intercontinental hotel in June. The Haqqani network has close ties to the Taliban in Afghanistan, but is thought to have roots inside Pakistani territory.

Pakistan’s ISI supported Kabul attacks: US admiral

  1. What a surprise!  Pakistan’s ISI underhandedly supporting global Jihad!  I wonder what role the ISI and similar organizations are playing in promoting mass immigration to Canada?  It’s no secret that Radical Islamists dream of global domination and beefing up their numbers in the West is another way of helping to achieve this.  CSIS has warned us repeatedly of Canadian politicians being too close to foreign gov’ts.  One can only speculate as to how many of them are being bribed by organizations like the ISI to keep supporting open immigration.

    • Its easy to blame the ISI for US military failures – after all, no evidence is ever tabled.
      Has anyone raised the question of what 100,000 NATO troops do in Afghanistan? Twiddle thumbs? Shouldn’t it be their responsibility to prevent illegals from crossing the Eastern border?
