Battle for Mohmand Agency and Militancy - Operation Braikhna-2 or Thunder - Part 3

Pakistan's premier spy agency ISI has been accused of supporting attack on the US embassy in Kabul by the senior US military officer - Mike Mullen. For the last two to three days there were feelers flying around regarding these accusations. Earlier Pakistan Government was accused of supporting Haqqani group which is blamed for the attacks on the US Embassy and the killing of former President of Afghanistan Burhan ud Din Rabbani.

Mike Mullen was straight forward in his remarks accusing Pakistan. He said "With ISI support, Haqqani operatives planned and conducted a truck bomb attack [on 11 September], as well as the assault on our embassy," we also have credible intelligence that they were behind the 28 June attack against the Inter-Continental Hotel in Kabul and a host of other smaller but effective operations."

Earlier today US Senate Committee linked the aid to Pakistan on cutting of all ties with the Haqqani group. However Pakistan has always denied any link with the Haqqani group.

The Interior Minister of Pakistan Mr. rehman Malik reacting to the remarks of Admiral Mullen told the BBC correspondent, that Pakistan has no link with any ilitants group. Whenever and whereever we got the information we acted against them.
