Mullen: Insurgents behind embassy attack work for Pakistan intelligence

The Haqqani network of insurgents is a "veritable arm" of Pakistan's intelligence service, the ISI, U.S. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen warned on Thursday.

Mullen, speaking to the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the ISI supported Haqqani insurgents' planning and execution of the recent attack on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul and other strikes in Afghanistan.

Mullen is chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    "Gibbs slap" to the cyber stalker. That's why I don't have a FB and limit my comments here.
    Hey banasy and all I've been reading these blogs daily just don't talk so much.

    Too little too late. Pakistan was playing a double game from day one. ISI has been behind most of terrorist acts in AFghanistan, and elsewhere targetting US citizens and interests. Now saying publicly that ISI is behind attacks serves little to improve (let alone reverse) the situation. The only thing that can reverse the situation is adopting an Israel style targetted assasination campaign, i.e. going after Pakistani ISI and military officials who are involved in aiding terrorists. Only then, Pakistan might consider changing its policy of terrorizing its neighbors (both India and Afghanistan) and the the world at large. It may sound radical, but what else can do this for you whne 10 years and 10 billions later they are still a blackmailing terrorist nation/state.

    Every time I hear about a problem like this, I know that we can't solve it because we've wasted all our money or Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Oh, we can solve it. Cheaper than not solving it. We can accept that the psychos over there want to run everything, and the sheeple over there are happy to let them. We can walk away.

    Insurgents? Is that the PC term today for freakin' MUSLIM TERRORISTS??? Islamic insurgents, militants, radicals, extremists, al-Qaida, fundamentalists, the Muslim Brotherhood, jihadists, or whatever is the PC term for today are actually "good" Muslims, not bad ones. The "insurgents" haven't corrupted Islam, hijacked their religion, nor interpreted it incorrectly, and therefore they aren't radicals, insurgents, or extremists!

    Islam isn't a peaceful religion; it is a declaration of war against all mankind. While "bad" Muslims can be moderate, peaceful or "not-Muslim-enough", these people have NO influence because even their “holy” (cough-cough) Koran tells "good" Muslims to KILL them!!

    I wish that our news organizations would answer that question instead of giving us the same 'ole terms like "radical" and "extremists" when all the evidence points that they are actually being "good" muslims...not BAD ones!!
