More evidence regarding what everyone is increasingly becoming familiar with: Pakistan’s perfidious nature. Friend-and-Ally Update.
“Pakistan’s spies ‘support terrorism,'” by Tamim Hamid for Quqnoos, October 4:
A LEAKED report from Spain’s intelligence service has accused Pakistan’s spy agency, the ISI, of supporting terrorism.
Broadcast on Spanish radio, the report said the ISI provides terrorists in Pakistan with explosive material and hand picks governmental targets for the terrorists to eliminate.
The leaked report comes at a time when the government is trying to shake-up the leadership of the country’s army and security services, replacing the head of the ISI in a bid to clean up its image.
How about to simply clean up its act?
Some experts are pessimistic about the changes, which they say will not impact on the wave of violence that has spread through Pakistan in recent weeks.
NATO, the US and Afghan officials accuse Pakistan of failing to clamp down on terrorists hiding in tribal regions along the border with Afghanistan, which has seen a sharp rise in militant attacks this year.
This week, the head of Afghanistan’s secret service, Amrullah Saleh, said Pakistan knew who masterminded the deadly attack on the Indian embassy in July and where he was currently hiding, but had failed to arrest him.
