Acknowledging the obvious: that some Pakistani officials are sympathetic to the jihad. By Isambard Wilkinson in the Telegraph, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Pakistan’s president, Pervez Musharraf, admitted yesterday that border guards had turned a “blind eye” towards Taliban militants crossing into Afghanistan to launch attacks on coalition forces.
The admission came after senior American officials publicly urged Pakistan to do more to curb infiltration.
“We had some incidents I know of that in some posts, a blind eye was being turned,” Gen Musharraf told a press conference when asked to comment on criticism of Pakistan’s co-operation in the US-led war on terror. “So similarly I imagine that others may be doing the same.”
