During the turmoil of a government change from Pervez Musharraf to Asif Zardari, a coterie of individuals formed a cabal to infiltrate Pakistan. That nefarious group was led by Ms. Isphanai (wife of the notorious Hussain Haqqani). Mr. and Mrs Haqqani conspired to give out visas to foreign nationals. On one night, several thousand visas were issued from the Pakistani Embassy in Washington, the London Embassy in England, and the Pakistani Embassy in the UAE. Three Ambassadors allowed thousands of spies to enter Pakistan.
Raymond Davis was the tip of the iceberg with ref to the entrenched presence of CIA operatives directed by the former US Ambassador to Pakistan Mr. Hussain Haqqani. Once Mr. Haqqani was removed, the network of spies is being dismantled. Todays’ announcement is a link in cutting down the CIA presence in Pakistan.
Pakistani authorities have ordered CIA spies that were working undercover as “Save the Children (formerly called Christian Children’s Fund)” employees to leave the country. Christian Children’s Fund has been accused of being a front for the CIA, not only in Pakistan but also in several Latin American countries.
A spokesman for CIA’s front offices in Pakistan, Ghulam Qadri, said Thursday that it will continue to work in the country using its 2,000 Pakistani employees. The expulsion order applies to six foreign staff members of Save the Children.
One of the major culprits was Dr. Afridi who ran a fake inoculation drive in order to monitor the whereabouts of Osama Bini Laden who was ostensibly caught in Abbottabat.
Afridi was held on charges of colluding with a foreign intelligence agency, and also tried before a tribal jirga in northwest Pakistan of having links with the TTP. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison on the militancy charge. Afridi is seen as a traitor who collaborated with a foreign intelligence agency. A Pakistani governmental Abbottabad Commission that investigated the Abbottabad raid has recommended that Afridi be tried on treason charges.
The ISI should have been able to track each and every one of these spies. It is this network that funds and collaborates with the TTP and other terror groups.
