ISI is an evildoer in the world?

By Habib R. Sulemani

On July 25, 2010 the WikiLeaks released a set of documents – the Afghan War Diary, containing over 91,000 classified reports from 2004 to 2010 – written by soldiers and intelligence officers.

The documents reveal that Pakistan’s main secret agency the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is clandestinely collaborating with the Taliban in Afghanistan despite the US aid to our government to end terrorism in the region.

The documents say that the ISI supports the militants and its officers meet directly with the Taliban in “secret strategy sessions to organize militant networks fighting US soldiers”. Former ISI chief Lt-Gen. Hamid Gul met Al Qaeda guys in South Waziristan to plain a suicide attack on US forces.

The leaks link the ISI to a plot to assassinate Afghan President Hamid Karzai, attacks on NATO warplanes, a plot to poison the beer supply of Western troops and the 2008 Indian embassy bombing.

Earlier media reports had also claimed that the ISI allegedly sent 1,000 motorbikes – the heavenly-ride of the militants in the rocky terrain – to the chief of the Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani network to carry out suicide attacks in Afghanistan.

I wonder is the ISI really an evildoer in the world or some rogue officers have disgraced the national security organization to the level that even common citizens are horrified by its name!
