3. Sounded like a mix of both because he mentioned
that they (investigators) were working with the Pakistanti government too.

6. I bet not
No matter what Pakistan (or their notorious ISI department) does, no matter what any individual Pakistanis do, Pervez the Dictator is our 'Good Friend', so they won't go there.

17. Please reign in the accusation of racism. Stating country of origin
is not racist.

11. I believe one of the financiers of Atta of 9/11 fame
was the head of Pakistan's ISI. Of course, there's alot that won't be shown or revealed concerning 9/11, especially before any elections occur.

But no, we haven't been attacked by Iraqi terrorists yet except our military once it invaded.

15. These stupid bastards think that they are so much smarter than...
every other country, don't they realize that they have been watching them for years and their hypocritical policies. Don't be surprised if we find something going on with India next, isn't this the country they are helping to get nuclear weapons. They have been watching them making deals and then stabbing others in the back or making them the fall guy.

14. Pakistani officials bribed the 911 Commission..
according to Indian and Pakistan press reports,
http://www.telegraphindia.com/1060313/asp/nation/story_...

they also helped pay for 911 according to the Times of India and the WSJ
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/cms.dll/html/uncomp/...

they have a history of working with Al Qaeda in Kashmer.

But they are our "allies" in the war on terror.

19. Blame it on the Pakistani madrasses. About 10 years ago
60 Minutes did a story about them. Hotbeds of radical Wabbibism financed by Saudis.

The message was that when foreign aid is dramatically cut, dangerous forces fill in the void. It was one one the best stories they ever ran.
