US troops to participate in operations in tribal areas, says ex-spy master

Interesting slant on this article, against the Blackwater guys. The retired general hates the US for its failure to help Afghanistan after the CIA failed to help more after the Soviets were chased out. Of course, the Left refused to allow funds for rebuilding and helping the Afghanistanis, because some of them were religious zealots. So the zealots ended up taking over the region because they had help from the rich Muslims around the world.

Allowing Blackwater to train the Pakistani military is great. Those boys are fantastic at doing that job, just like they have a perfect record while protecting High Value Targets in Iraq. I would trust them to make the Pakistani commandos into deadly fighting machines. Go get 'em, boys!


AKI - Adnkronos international Pakistan: US troops to participate in operations in tribal areas, says ex-spy master: "Hundreds of US troops will be involved in military operations in Pakistan's restive tribal areas, according to a former head of the country's powerful intelligence agency, ISI.

“Seven hundred and fifty American commandoes will participate in upcoming military operations in the Pakistani tribal areas,' retired General Hamid Gul, former ISI director-general, told Adnkronos International (AKI).

“I confirm this to you on the basis of my information that those American commandoes will be sent [to Pakistan] through private [security] contracting firms like Blackwater and they will supervise the whole operation,' said Gul referring to Blackwater, a private security firm that has been at the centre of a controversy over private contractors in Iraq."
