Foreword by Gordon Duff

Veterans Today realized some time ago that Pakistan would be the key to US security.  Toward that end, we formed a partnership with Opinion-Maker (, one of the most influential publications in that country and one that takes courageous stands in a country new to democracy.  Jeff Gates and I traveled to Pakistan this spring at the initiation of VT co-editor Raja Mujtaba.  While in Pakistan, we were briefed by the highest levels of the military and intelligence communities in what were frank and open exchanges.  These exchanges were open to a degree where considerable trust was shared and much of the information given could never be released.    Those agreements related to the lives and safety of American and Pakistani soldiers in the field and were based on relationships of honor and trust.  Those promises will be kept.

I can still tell my grandchildren that I had dinner with former ISI Chief Hameed Gul and tea with Colonel Imam, the famed intermediary with the Mujahideen now missing and presumed held prisoner by the Taliban.  In military circles, being able to claim former Chairman of Pakistan’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Sirohey a friend or being consulted by former Head of the Army General Beg is well up the “name dropping” scale.  It isn’t who you meet, it is what is done, what is contributed that counts.  Toward that end, these individuals and those we can’t name, along with Raja Mujtaba’s associates led by military strategist and author BG Asif Haroon Raja, Jeff and I felt we had a rare privilege and a rare look into the inner workings of Pakistan’s intelligence community.

Our point was to make sure everyone could take the gloves off and let fly, say what they thought and not play journalist or whatever it is when America sends officials into Pakistan to be told what they want to hear.  Lack of status has its rewards at times and this was one of those rare times when views and doubts could be expressed and shared.  This leads us to the document below.  What is it?

It comes from Pakistan and bears the seal of approval of, well, I know where it comes from.  How it is taken and what is done is another story.  I have been assured that witnesses, recordings and such exist.  I recognize the methodologies used and attributed to American intelligence agencies.  I also see the untold hand of India and Israel, names not included for reason of, frankly, survival.

Hamid Mir, Game Is Over!

The reader can see truth if it is there or, as so often is the case, see truth but feel overwhelmed and helpless, knowing that America can be duplicitous and that nothing is as it seems.  You are going to be told that the CIA is responsible for the Time Square bombing, knows as the “Time Square Fizzler.”  Many suspected it, the CIA or the CIA with their constant companions in idiocy, the Israeli Mossad, a name that no official in Pakistan will mention to their paymasters in Washington for fear of offense.

  In Obama –Netanyahu Meeting, Who Is Who?

No mention of a 65 billion dollar per year drug trade is made either but I strongly suggest that, where appropriate, a texture, a backdrop be constructed that includes mercenary contractors, Mossad and RAW agents and a sea of drug cash.  The story itself is simple, a tale of betrayal.  Why would the US have an intelligence agency involved in such convoluted plots as seen below?  What is the role of Israel or India?  How much of what is going on is driven by so many other concerns, not just drugs but religion, jealousy and hate?

What is clear, or should be is that what is done, what has been done did not serve the security of the United States.  Another agenda was there.  Security services that Americans pay tens, even hundreds of billions of dollars per year to be protected by have, for decades, often answered to a different call, one related to power, criminalism and deceit.  Our culture is filled with such stories, none will be unfamiliar.

We can pretend it is just movie.  Keep telling yourself this.

And the story opens as follows:

BEEP: Bloody CIA agent Hamid Mir exposed (WITH TAPED AUDIO CALL)

Today at 7:51am


(audio tape, not in English)

This looks like a tale of fiction and movies. But this is a real life drama unfolding in Pakistan around us.

The secret web of betrayal and treachery – The untold story of Khalid Khawaja, Hamid Mir, Mullah Barader and Faisal Shehzad

Any links between the three?? Seems impossible! But not in this high stakes State-sponsored dirty, sinister world of covert ops, double agents, sting operations and assassinations.

Lets start the story:

Americans have been trying to play a sinister game. They had penetrated into the ranks of Afghan Taliban especially into the Popalzai tribe and had cultivated a high level Afghan Taliban leader to be pitched against Mullah Umer. Basically, CIA was creating a “coup” within Taliban. Hold your breath, sit back and prepare yourself to know who this secret “CIA asset” within the Taliban was.. It was Mullah Barader! Yes, the same one captured in Karachi by ISI and US is desperate to have him.

  Malala's Noble 'Dynamite' & Nabila's Bombing Drone

The CIA plan was that Mullah Barader would be brought to Karachi and then ISI would be tipped to arrest him. Then US were to ask the custody of the Afghan leader and Pakistan government would hand over the Afghan Talib leader to US. The result would be catastrophic for Pakistan as all pro-Taliban elements would then condemn ISI and Pakistan as CIA puppets and a serious breach of trust and confidence would appear between Pakistani security establishment and Afghan Mujahideen. This would also humiliate army and ISI in front of the nation. CIA and US administration were extremely upset when ISI refused to hand over Mullah Barader to US, despite the pressure from Zardari mafia. ISI initially did not know the CIA game. They just refused to hand over Barader to US and insisted upon their own interrogation first. Unknowingly, ISI was seriously damaging the US game plan of staging a coup against Mullah Omar as well as against ISI. During the interrogation, the entire game became exposed to the ISI.

The Zardari clan was equally desperate to hand over Barader to US. Here, enters Khalid Khawaja!

Out of his love for Taliban, unknowingly that he is entering to a global game of espionage and betrayal, KK filed a petition into the SC taking a stay order against handing over of Mullah Barader to US. Now US were furious. KK had signed his death warrant and now was marked for death.

KK (Khalid Khawaja) had been going to North Waziristan and dealing with TTP, trying his best to start a reconciliation process between Pakistan and TTP. He was also aware of the fact that a “Lashkar Jhangvi” faction of TTP was opposed to these attempts at peace talks. These include Ilyas Kashmiri gang commonly called Punjabi Taliban. When KK was returning from talks with Hakim Ullah Mehsud, he was invited by Punjabi Taliban group and taken prisoner along with Col Imam and Asad Qureshi, the journalist.

Initially, TTP was unaware of KK and his party’s being taken prisoner by the Punjabi Taliban. Later, when Hakeem Ullah Mehsud came to know of the drama, he tried to secure the release of the men. But then, enters another treacherous character from Geo TV.

Hamid Mir, makes a call to the Punjabi Taliban and ask them not to release KK and instigates them to assassinate KK as a spy! Hamid Mir, talks to Punjabi Taliban (PT) in detail and this entire conversation is recored by the PT and the tape is taken to HakimUllah Mehsud. The allegations, charges and accusations against KK which were leveled by Hamid Mir were so severe that HakimUllah Mehsud also fell for the trap and allowed the execution of KK after making him read the confessional statement which was exactly what Hamid Mir had dictated to the PT. This tape is now available and is the most direct incriminating evidence against Hamid Mir. It is clear that Hamid Mir was launched by Americans to use his influence on the TTP and PT to get KK assassinated. It was done with precision, except for one blunder – the tape is now with Pakistani secret services.

The American desire is to wage a war in North Waziristan against Haqqani / Afghan Taliban networks. Pakistan army is not willing to do that. Americans tried to use Mullah Barader to create serious mistrust and hatred between Afghan Taliban and Pakistan army. That was failed when Barader was not handed over to US and Khalid Khawaja unknowingly became a major setback for the Americans when he took a court order against Barader’s extradition. Khalid was trapped and Hamid Mir was used to mislead TTP into assassinating KK. But in the end, the US plan of waging a war in North Waziristan fizzles out.

  Was Israel Ever Legitimate?

Now a backup plan was required to create reasons to initiate a war into North Waziristan. – Here enter Faisal Shehzad – a false flag operation to implicate Pakistani Taliban and then threaten and force Pakistan to “do more” in North Waziristan! Another Pakistani is arrested in Chile in the US embassy with traces of explosives on his luggage and clothes. More Pakistanis are being arrested and a massive media disinformation war is being launched that all global terrorism is emerging from Pakistani tribal pocket of North Waziristan and ISI/army is either hands and gloves with Taliban or nor willing to do more.

So now, you understand the tone, language and demeanor of Hillary and US media over Faisal Shehzad! Despite the fact that US army Generals have confirmed that Faisal had no links with anyone in FATA.

Pakistan was being setup for a possible geopolitical disaster. Allah protected Pakistan. US and Indians through their assets in Media and in terrorist groups continue to kick dust and deceive the world and Pakistani nation. But now, this time at least, their game is exposed.
