While Yousuf Raza Gilani, the Prime Minister of Pakistan shakes hands with the Bush, and promises is full cooperation with them in any regard, the following report is published in the US media:
A top CIA official traveled to Islamabad this month with new information about ties between Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency and militants operating in Pakistan’s tribal areas, the newspaper said on its Web site late Tuesday. Its sources were American military and intelligence officials it did not identify. The Times said the CIA assessment pointed to links between the ISI and the militant network led by Jalaluddin Haqqani, which American officials believe maintains close ties to senior figures of al-Qaida in Pakistan’s tribal areas. The CIA has depended heavily on the ISI for information about militants in Pakistan despite long-standing concerns about divided loyalties within the Pakistani spy service, which had close relations with the Taliban in Afghanistan before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
ISI has just recovered from the failed blow of Asif Ali Zardari, in which Zardari tried to take over the ISI through Rehman Malik, and now such report has surfaced. These things have become now part of routine, and at one side US claims cooperation with Pakistan’s premier agency, and on the other hand such reports appear.
This tells the story of US’s friendship with Pakistan and their regard towards us.
