A senior official in Pakistan’s civilian government told ABC News, “Elements of Pakistan intelligence — probably rogue or retired — were involved in aiding, abetting and sheltering the leader of al Qaeda,” the strongest public statement yet from the Pakistani government after the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. This is based on the government’s judgment that the number of years bin Laden spent in Abbottabad — and it now appears in a village outside the city of Haripur — would have been impossible without help, possibly from someone in the middle tier of ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence agency, who grew up fighting alongside the mujahidin against the Soviets, said the official.
There will always be elements of the Pakistani military that are willing to betray American interests while at the same time holding their hands out for aid. It’s time for the US government to face the hard cold facts and end all aid and cooperation. It’s like cooperating with Iran and believing they have no ulterior motive. It’s, to put it bluntly, a pact with the devil.
