Sadly mistaken?

A day after the assassination of Rabbani, America’s top soldier has accused the Pakistan secret service of formenting terrorism in Afghanistan.

Admiral Mike Mullen says he has creditable evidence for making his claim that his nation’s chief ally is exporting terror.

America’s problems in Afghanistan have nothing to do with the ISI.

Anymore than her current problems in Iraq have any thing to do with sectarianism.

They are suffering a crisis of confidence because they are seen in these lands as occupiers, not liberators.

If Pakistan is indeed using an arm in Afganistan, in the same way as Iran has been accused of backing Shia groups in side Iraq, then they are merely pursuing their nation’s own interests, in the same as America has been in this dubious war on terror.
