CIA will not halt operations in Pakistan: Official

The Central Intelligence Agency has no plans to suspend “operations” in Pakistan against terror suspects despite objections from leaders in Islamabad, a US official said Thursday.

Pakistan has criticised missile strikes by US drone aircraft against militants in the country but CIA Director Leon Panetta has told intelligence officials that he has a duty to prevent attacks on the United States, the senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP.

“Panetta has been clear with his Pakistani counterparts that his fundamental responsibility is to protect the American people, and he will not halt operations that support that objective,” the official said.

The CIA chief on Monday held several hours of talks at the agency’s  headquarters outside Washington with Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, the head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

US media had reported that Pasha and other officials told the United States to rein in drone strikes and slash the number of CIA agents and special forces operating in the nuclear-armed Muslim country.

Apparently reflecting the CIA chief’s stance, American drones resumed missile attacks in Pakistan on Wednesday for the first time in a month, targeting fighters from the al Qaeda-linked Haqqani network near the Afghan border.

The unmanned aircraft fired four missiles at a vehicle in the South Waziristan district, striking a route used by Taliban and al Qaeda-allied militants who cross into Afghanistan to attack Nato-led troops, Pakistani officials said.

It was the first missile strike since March 17, when Pakistan’s civilian and military leaders strongly protested over a US drone attack that killed 39 people, including civilians and police, in North Waziristan.

Pakistan’s foreign ministry and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani both sharply criticised the latest bombing raid.

But analysts and former US intelligence officers say there is little chance the CIA would abandon the drone bombing campaign despite a series of diplomatic rows, and even if Pakistani leaders, for domestic political purposes, publicly criticised the strikes.

Don’t ask CIA to cut down operations, ramp up your operations to kill Americans who are here under the CIA cover- so long as there is will on govt side, CIA, Mosad & RAW of this world can’t do anything on ground. Unless Americans know that they will be killed on ground, they will keep hunting Pakistanis on our own groundRecommend

    Kudo’s to Panetta – a straightforward answer to a country which knowingly allows terrorist sanctuary within it’s territory and has acted in a two faced manner since day one. Reading the responses on this article I find it hard to believe that it has only been a month since a two star Pakistani general went public and indicated that the drone attacks were highly successful killing. The article on this newspaper indicated “about 164 predator strikes had been carried out and over 964 terrorists killed. Of those killed, 793 were locals and 171 foreigners.” and “there are a few civilian casualties in such precision strikes, but a majority of those eliminated are terrorists”. In short – all the mass hysteria about civilian casualties is typical Pakistani xenophobia – long on anti America bias and short on facts. Recommend

    All Pakistanis here think whoever dies in the Drone attacks are Civilians and who kills them is the Satan. Well, those “Civilians” carry AK-47 with them and attack targets in Afghanistan from Pakistani soil.

    The Pakistani army is hand and glove with the Americans on this. Just see this:

    The Pakistani Army is allowing their Air Base to be used for Drone strikes. So, why is no one asking Pakistani army any questions? The Missiles which can shoot down Indian Sukhois can also shoot down a slow moving drone,why are they not being used?

    They lack attitudes not just leadership. Everything boil;s down to attitude of the people. We in India almost consider most in Pakistan to be sub standard with every bad attitude possible which also prevents them from recovering. That alone is teh cause and will remain the cause for all its problems within itsewlf and with others. India also has problem attitudes but few in comparison with Pakistan.

    Pakistan lacks basic fundamentals, basic people development that will take 2 generations to overcome. India got that, Other things are relatively much easier to do. So it is not leadership. Pakistani people also have never been united- again a product of bad attitude which everyone is only hinking about himself./herself or his own version of Islam.

    US is coming for Pakistan. After Af-Pak it is clearly going to be Pak-Af. US politicians and new Preseident hopefuls have been talking about it for last 2 years.

    Kayanis billion dollar 6 new submarines aren’t going to keep American forces off the Pakistani shores. All the submariner troops will be going to the bottom of the pcean together with the billion dollars ! Your attitude problem prevents you from seeing this.

    India shares US point of view.

    Had Pakistani corrected its attitude problems on its own 10-20-30 years ago, Pakistan could have dictated the agenda to US, China and India. But it is too late now. It has only one path- follow other people’s orders. In short those are- a)Introduce seculriasm or at lest total freedom in Pakistan b)Avoid any support to Taliban c)Concrete, demonstrated action of hunting down Taliban (not like recent action of supporting Taliban embassy in Turkey) d)Hunt down all UN/US declared terrorists e)Forget Kashmir and tone transofrm ISI

    Pakistan surrendered its sovereignty long ago when it refused to “take care of its own”. Freedom, in this case sovereignty, comes with responsibility. If you don’t behave responsibly, then you are at risk to lose your freedom.

    Pakistan chose to allow terrorists on its soil and then do little to nothing about them, though the rest of the world was SHOUTING at them to reign them in and “take control of your own territory!” This did not happen, so somebody else had to come in and clean up Pakistan’s sh!t mess spread out all over the place!

    I wish the American policy makers don’t get to read the comments above and understand the extent of hatred the educated pakistanis have in their hearts for the US. If the educated people feel so, you can imagine how much hatred the common man, influenced by Urdu press, will have for US.

    If they read these comments, they will think twice about sending their billion-dollar thankless aid to our country.

    If the Americans get to know about how we feel for them, the time is not far away when they will stop their billions of dollars. The country will come to the standstill if the US stops its donation.

    Imagine what will happen if the American taxpayers start thinking, “We have been pouring money to this country and all we get in return are hatred towards us from these ungrateful people.

    Let’s not forget that the milk we drink, the bread we eat, the salaries we get, the medicines we take…..all these come to the Land of the Pure with the charity of the evil US. Recommend
