US report brings out Pakistan’s complicity in propping up Al-Qaeda
http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_375555,00050001....

It’s more or less official now. Declassified portions of US intelligence documents bring out what has always been known: Pakistan’s complicity in propping up not only the Taliban, but also Osama Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. Islamabad, it is now revealed, had directed the Taliban to facilitate Al-Qaeda’s expansion.

“Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda network was able to expand under the safe sanctuary extended by Taliban following Pakistan directives,” say the declassified portions of documents collated by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA). The agency, however, describes the material as raw intelligence information report, not finally evaluated intelligence.

The National Security Archive, a Washington DC-based research body which obtained a censored version of the documents under the Freedom of Information Act, has put out a collection of 32 documents under the title, ‘The Taliban File’.

“If there is any doubt on that issue (Pak nexus with Bin Laden), consider the location of Bin Laden’s camp targeted by US Cruise missiles, Zahawa (CNA). Positioned on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, it was built by Pakistan contractors funded by the Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI),” says a secret dispatch.

1. and they have nukes...
though I'm sure they would never let any of that material get out of the country... after all, they are pro-democracy, pro-freedom, pro-Bush, Murika-loving Southern Baptists over there, right?

about the countries that harbor terrorists?

The National Security Archive, a Washington DC-based research body which obtained a censored version of the documents under the Freedom of Information Act, has put out a collection of 32 documents under the title, ‘The Taliban File’.

“If there is any doubt on that issue (Pak nexus with Bin Laden), consider the location of Bin Laden’s camp targeted by US Cruise missiles, Zahawa (CNA). Positioned on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, it was built by Pakistan contractors funded by the Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI),” says a secret dispatch.


And then there is ISI giving Mohammed Atta $100,000.

The Saudis, Pakistanis and BFEE are all in cohoots using terror for political ends and killing anybody that gets in the way, IMHO.
