U.S. General: We’ve known for 2 years that Pakistan aids and abets the Taliban

February 5, 2012

In a Feb. 1 interview with BBC, U.S. General Jack Keane, a former vice chief of staff of the Army, declared that the U.S. has “known for over two years” that Pakistan has provided resources, sanctuary, training, and aid to the Taliban.  This information corroborates a U.S. report on the Taliban that was disclosed earlier this week.

Gen. Keane specifically accused Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, the chief of staff of Pakistan’s military, and Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, the director of Pakistan’s ISI spy agency, of directly providing such aid to the Taliban.  Take a listen:

The Obama administration has known for over two years that our “ally” funds our enemy, and we’ve done nothing about it other than “confront” Pakistan through private, diplomatic channels?
