Links found between Pakistani government and terrorist attack on Kabul embassy

How can  we justify giving these terrorist supporters $7 billion over the next 4 years - much if it in military aid?

The US government has announced that it has discovered links between Pakistan's government and the terrorist network Haqqani. This Taliban network is responsible for several high profile attacks and assassinations over the last few years.

Haqqani is suspected in the attack on our embassy in Kabul last week.

The United States says there is evidence linking the Pakistani government to the militant group that carried out last week's attack on the US embassy in Kabul.

The US ambassador to Pakistan, Cameron Munter, claims there are links between the Pakistani government and high-profile terrorist group the Haqqani network.

In blunt comments broadcast by state-run Radio Pakistan, Mr Munter said: "Let me tell you that the attack that took place in Kabul a few days ago that was the work of the Haqqani network," he said, referring to a deadly miltant attack in on Tuesday.

"There is evidence linking the Haqqani network to the Pakistan government. This is something that must stop.

"We have to make sure that we work together to fight terrorism."

Asked to provide evidence of the link with the Pakistani government, Mr Munter said only "we believe that to be the case".

The Haqqani network, which is closely allied to the Taliban, has been blamed for several high-profile attacks against Western, Indian and government targets in Afghanistan.

There comes a point where you have to admit error in supporting the civilian government in Pakistan. They simply can't stand up to the military or the ISI who give safe haven to several terrorist groups and directly support others. And the civilian government is no paragon of virtue either; incredibly corrupt, anti-American in outlook, and quasi-authoritarian.

We can't leave Afghanistan soon enough. Once out, we can cut ties with these terrorist supporters once and for all.
