In the wake of the prevailing security situation and tension in relations with the US (after statements issued by Mullen, Panetta and Gen Mettis) General Kiyani and the top military and political leadership unanimously rejected the allegations leveled against Pakistani security institutions by the US.The Pakistani Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar, said that Pak is not supporting Haqqani network. Misunderstandings between the US and Pakistan will give benefit to some third party who do not want peace and stability in the region. US needs to improve its intelligence and attitude. Pakistan has suffered more than any other country in War on Terror.
On other hand, Indian Foreign Minister, S M Krishna said that we are happy that US has endorsed our stance about Haqqani Network and ISI. Hina Rabbani Khar, Pakistan's young Foreign Minister carries a mature head and said in an interview to American Channel that America cannot fly alone in the region. Pakistan faced 311 attacks but America only one. it was the US that had established Haqqani network and not Pakistan. Ronald Reagan is on record.
These fireworksand volley of canon fires from Washington DC have put the readers into state of confusion. I as a writer decided to help the readers to understand the situation and form a clear opinion of theirs. A statement relased on the Taliban's website (Voice of Jihad) said "all insurgent activity is of "our own initiatives and our own actions." It said there are no ties between the Haqqani network and Pakistan's spy agency, the ISI
The statement also said attempts to link the Haqqani network's founder, Jalaluddin Haqqani, to the Pakistani government were an attempt to "give a bad name to our prominent figures" by tying them to foreign intelligence services. Has the super power learned some lesson after its statement of weapon of mass destruction in Iraq and later saying SORRY INTELLIGENCE FAILURE. The CIA Chief labeling ISI Complicent or incapable after OBL Killing in Abbottabad. I only ask does present US officials giving such starement and CIA represent the same America which is known for its uprightness , values , Human rights and LIBERTY. OR a group of out sourcers like Black Waters having no value for rule of law and TRUTH. I leave my readers with these two photographs to decide themselves.
