US Protects CIA Agents
By Sajjad ShaukatSince Pakistan became the only declared nuclear country in the Islamic World, US, Indiaand Israel started acting upon their collective agenda to destabilise it.After the shift of the Great Game from Central Asia to Pakistan, the country has becomespecial target of American CIA, Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad which have beensupporting target killings, suicide attacks, hostage-takings, sectarian and ethnic violence invarious cities, and separatist elements in Balochistan. These foreign agencies based inAfghanistan have been sending well-trained agents and militants in Pakistan who alsoattack the check posts of Pakistan’s security forces. Besides Afghanistan, US-led espionagenetwork has also been shifted to Pakistan as intensity of anti-Pakistan activities especiallyof CIA agents have proved.In this context, US has openly been protecting CIA agents by pressuring Pakistan. Without paying attention to the fact about the conviction of a Pakistani doctor, Shakeel Afridi, USSecretary of State Hillary Clinton on May 24, this year condemned his imprisonment as“unjust and unwarranted” for helping in the hunt for Osama bin Laden.Moreover, to further blackmail Islamabad for Dr. Shakeel Afridi’s release,
US Senate cuts$33m aid to Pakistan. On May 29, a US Conservative Senator Rand Paul suggested tosuspend all Pak aid until Dr. Afridi is set free.In fact, Shakeel Afridi has been sentenced 33 years imprisonment by order of the AssistantPolitical Agent, Bara due to his anti-state activities in accordance with the provision of Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) and the tribal traditions. The punishment is based on hisclose association with the banned terrorist group Lashkar-e-Islam led by Mangal Bagh. Theevidence produced by the Joint Investigation Team before the court proved Dr. Afridi’sclandestine collaboration with the CIA in connection with the May 2 US raid inAbbottabad which violated Pakistan’s sovereignty. Notably, since 2008, intermittent fighting in Tirah Valley in Kyber Agency betweenAnsur-ul-Islam, and Lashkar-e-Islam which has been supporting by CIA-led RAW andMossad,
have claimed more than 2500 lives.Particularly with the assistance of CIA, RAW has hired the services of the Indian Muslimswho are on US payroll. Posing themselves as staunch believers, they joined the ranks andfiles of the Taliban and other militant groups of Tehreek-e-Taliban, Sipah-e-Sahaba andother religious sects. The main aim behind is to continue sectarian and ethnic disturbancein Pakistan besides committing other subversive acts to destabilse Pakistan.Recently, Federal Interior Minister 
Rehman Malik disclosed that the militants of the banned outfits of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, Sipah-e-Sahaba, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi andBaloch Liberation Army are in collaboration in creating unrest in Karachi. On July 18,2011, Rehman Malik, while disclosing the involvement of foreign hands in Pakistan, had
openly stated, “Over 200 miscreants have been arrested…Israeli and American madeweapons including AK-45 rifles have been recovered from them.” Now, US is so anxious for the release of CIA agent Dr Afridi that it has set aside, Pak-USongoing negotiations on the complex issue of restoring the NATO supply routes.Last year, American top officials urged Pakistan to set free American national, RaymondDavis who killed two Pakistani nationals in Lahore on January 27, 2011. In fact, Davis wasan under-cover secret agent of CIA who entered Pakistan in guise of diplomat.In 2009, the existence of the US private security firm, Blackwater was verified. Blackwater and CIA started recruiting Pakistani nationals who were vulnerable and could work on their  payroll. As part of US espionage network, hundreds of the American CIA spies enteredPakistan under the guise of diplomats. They started supervising and guiding the anti-Pakistan activities through their affiliated militants. These spies were also trying to gather information about Pakistan’s nuclear assets.On the other side, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) started thwarting theanti-Pakistan activities of the spies of Blackwater and CIA. In this context, with the pre-information of ISI, Pakistan’s security agencies arrested a number of agents. For instance,on September 19, 2009, police raided the Inter-Risk, a private security company inIslamabad, and arrested its two employees, possessing unlicensed arms. While, USembassy spokesperson Richard Snelsire pretended, “The US contract with the Inter-Risk isto provide security at the embassy and consulates.”Besides, on many occasions, ISI helped in stopping the secret movements of the CIA spieswho were traveling in vehicles, covered with black mirrors—showing themselves asdiplomats. Sometimes weapons were also snatched from them. On the information of ISI,Pakistan’s establishment expelled several so-called diplomats, operating in the country. Onthe other side, US withheld $700 million in military aid to punish its military and ISI.To what extent America saves CIA agents, could also be judged from the famousMemogate case. On December 15, 2012, the Chief of Army Staff Gen. Ashfaq ParvezKayani, and former ISI Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha submitted their statements in theSupreme Court in the memogate case. The former Pakistani ambassador to the US, HusainHaqqani who had resigned from his post to face the investigations about the allegationsmade by Mansoor Ijaz, an American businessman of Pakistani origin in the memo, alsoattended the hearings of the Court, and joined the concerned judicial commission, but hewas allowed to leave the country after an assurance that he would appear before the courtwhenever ordered to do so.Mansoor Ijaz also submitted his reply in the Supreme Court, claiming that he sent the draftof the memo to Husain Haqqani for review. Ijaz had assured Haqqani that the memocontained an offer, backed by President Asif Zardari that the US should help
to oust thecurrent military leadership—a new national security team would disband the Army unitwhich collaborates with the Taliban and other anti-Western militant groups.
