RAW OPERATIONS AGAINST USA EXPOSED…PAKISTAN ALSO?

Filed under: india,ISI,memogate,Mossad,RAW,USA — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 11:19 am

Taj Mahal

RAW agents have obtained US government passwords and are conducting spy operations against American officials, according to US media reports.

The Indian hacker group that released Symantec anti-virus source code earlier this month now says it has more proof that Indian intelligence agencies are spying on the U.S. government.

Infosec Island’s Anthony M. Freed posted an article saying one of the Indian hackers, who calls himself “YamaTough,” gave him 68 sets of usernames and passwords for U.S. government network accounts.

YamaTough told Freed the account data is just a sample of the information the hacker group, the “Lords of Dharmaraja,” copied from Indian government servers.

“In the best interest of the federal, state and local municipalities and their constituents, Infosec Island will not publish the compromised account data,” Freed wrote. “We have provided the information to the proper authorities and are fully cooperating with law enforcement.”

This news of RAW spying on their supposed ally America comes just days after it was revealed that Mossad carried out false flag operations against the US which adds to the evidence supporting the fact that RAW and Mossad are working together to destabilise the Pak-American security relationship.

But that is not the only interesting piece of information in this latest report.

Later in the same article, the reporters reveal the existence of a series of memos which prove that RAW has ‘backdoors’ to RIM Blackberry devices.

Last week, the Lords of Dharmaraja publicly posted purported internal Indian military intelligence memos that said Apple, Nokia and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) had given India “backdoors” — secret keys to unlock encrypted communications sent and received by users of their handsets.

As a possible demonstration of the viability of those backdoors, the memos also included transcripts of emails between members of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), a congressional commission that analyzes and reports on bilateral American-Chinese relations. The memos said information revealed in the emails had resulted in Indian naval-intelligence operatives being sent to China.

Reuters said it got hold of a larger set of USCC emails, which it showed to two Indian security experts with ties to India’s government and two unnamed Americans “close to” the USCC. All four dismissed the memos as hoaxes possibly concocted by China or India’s arch-rival Pakistan.

Other Washington insiders told Reuters the memos seemed genuine.

Mansoor Ijaz RAW agent?This is important evidence of another scheme to destabilise Pakistan. Remember that the current crisis was started by the claims of the anti-Pakistan neo-con Mansoor Ijaz. It was later revealed that Mansoor Ijaz has offered to be an agent of RAW. What evidence has Mansoor Ijaz provided to support his claims? Blackberry transcripts. And now we learn that RAW has ‘backdoors’ to Blackberry devices.

What more ingenious way to destabilise Pakistan than to create suspicion and mistrust between Army and the government. And what more perfect way to carry out this scheme than to use hacked Blackberry devices, knowing that they can never be proven but will always cast a doubt between the Army and the government, keeping Pakistan divided against itself and weakened to Indian machinations?

ISRAEL’S FALSE FLAG ARROGANCE IS OPPORTUNITY FOR PAKISTAN

Israel false flag

A report in the American website Foreign Policy exposes for the first time the activities of Mossad conducting false flag operations to support terrorists in Balochistan. But the story may not be what you think, and it actually could provide an opportunity for Pakistan to set the record straight with a key ally.

According to the report published on Friday, former CIA officers have confirmed that Mossad has conducted false flag operations..AGAINST AMERICA.

Buried deep in the archives of America’s intelligence services are a series of memos, written during the last years of President George W. Bush’s administration, that describe how Israeli Mossad officers recruited operatives belonging to the terrorist group Jundallah by passing themselves off as American agents. According to two U.S. intelligence officials, the Israelis, flush with American dollars and toting U.S. passports, posed as CIA officers in recruiting Jundallah operatives — what is commonly referred to as a “false flag” operation.

On discovering this betrayal, American CIA officers and even President George W Bush “went ballistic”.

“It’s amazing what the Israelis thought they could get away with,” the intelligence officer said. “Their recruitment activities were nearly in the open. They apparently didn’t give a damn what we thought.”

America has been suspected for years of recruiting, training and arming Jundullah militants in Balochistan to carry out attacks against Iran and to destabilise Pakistan. The US has always denied these claims, but circumstantial evidence including sources claiming to have dealt with CIA agents themselves always kept suspicions alive. Now, we know the truth. Israel had turned on their supposed ally America and was conducting false flag operations against them.

This knowledge raises to important points for Pakistan security interests. The first is to ask why Mossad would choose to so arrogantly betray their ally America, not even giving a damn what they thought. Obviously, Mossad is trying to stop Iran from achieving a nuclear asset. According to the report in Foreign Policy, they have been frustrated by the Americans unwillingness to allow attacks against Iranian targets.

Israel regularly proposes conducting covert operations targeting Iranians, but is just as regularly shut down, according to retired and current intelligence officers. “They come into the room and spread out their plans, and we just shake our heads,” one highly placed intelligence source said, “and we say to them — ‘Don’t even go there. The answer is no.’”

America also continues to work closely with Pakistan Army and ISI in the war on terror. Pakistan being the only Muslim nuclear state, this must also be a source of anger the Mossad who believe that no Muslim nation should possess a nuclear weapon. For this reason, Mossad would want to destabilise Pakistan and the Pakistan-American security cooperation also. By conducting false flag operations meant to make the Americans look like the ones responsible for recruiting and arming Jundallah militants in Balochistan, Mossad has created suspicion between Pakistan and American officers.

Military and intelligence officers should take this report immediately to their American counterparts and show them that Pakistan, not Israel, is America’s true ally in the war on terrorism. At the same time they should hand the CIA proofs of RAW’s same activities. America continues to say that a stable and secure Pakistan is their goal, and now they can help stop the killings and violence in Balochistan by marching to their contacts in RAW and Mossad and telling them that the game is up!

Removing RAW and Mossad’s source of destabilizing both Balochistan and the Pakistan-American military cooperation will help quickly end the war on terror which is hurting the interests of both Pakistan and America and only benefits Israel and India. Now that Mossad’s nefarious schemes stand exposed, it is time to end them for good.

MANSOOR IJAZ TRUE AIM REVEALED

Filed under: ISI,RAW — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 12:31 pm

According to a report, Mansoor Ijaz is now accusing DG ISI of plotting a coup against the civilian government.

Mansoor Ijaz RAW agent?About a quarter of the way down the purported BBM exchange between Ijaz and Husain Haqqani, the American businessman proffers an eyebrow-elevating tip. Some hours after the memo was delivered, Ijaz tells his alleged co-conspirator that he has learned of a clandestine effort to evict Asif Ali Zardari from Islamabad’s presidential palace.

“I was just informed by senior US intel,” Ijaz writes in a message on May 10, “that GD-SII Mr P asked for, and received permission, from senior Arab leaders a few days ago to sack Z. For what its worth.” It’s worth a great deal, if only because it carries the same weight as what else appears in the apparently incriminating exchange. In his hasty typing, where he manages to turn “DG-ISI” into an anagram, Ijaz was saying that top American spooks have told him that Lieut. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha secured a green light from Gulf potentates to overthrow the government.

It is already reported that Mansoor Ijaz offered to be India’s agent in the past and was a special guest of NDA also. Many have suspected that this clever schemer has been up to something since he has always been terming Pakistani military as terrorists. Now the cat is out of the bag and it is revealed his true target is the military leadership who he wishes to slander as treasonous coup makers. Obviously there is no evidence to support accusations of coup plotting against the military leadership other than the word of one disgraced foreigner who is possibly on the payroll of multiple foreign agencies. Certainly this is why Gen Pasha visited Ijaz in his hotel and sized him up to be the schemer that he is and then returned to Pakistan to report on his plot. Not wishing to create a reaction from the public who will always stand by their forces, Gen Pasha must have told the leadership ‘in-camera’ about Ijaz’s scheming so that it is not allowed to affect the sensitivities of the masses.

Now that Mansoor Ijaz plot has been revealed Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar should kindly request the US intelligence to arrest their citizen for plotting against a sovereign nation and a supposed ally and a message should be delivered to India that such cheap attempts will never succeed against a united Pakistan.

ISPR: PAK-US COOPERATION NABS 3 AL QAEDA TERRORIST

Senior Al Qaeda leader Younis Al Mauritani arrested in Quetta by Inter Services Intelligence

Senior Al Qaeda leader Younis Al Mauritani arrested in Quetta by Inter Services Intelligence working with US intelligence.

In an intelligence driven operation by Inter Services Intelligence in coordination with Frontier Corps Balochistan, a senior Al Qaeda leader, Younis Al Mauritani mainly responsible for planning and conduct of international operations, was nabbed alongwith two other senior Al Qaeda operatives, Abdul Ghaffar Al Shami (Bachar Chama) and Messara Al Shami (Mujahid Amino) from suburbs of Quetta. Al Mauritani was tasked personally by Osama Bin Ladan to focus on hitting targets of economical importance in United States of America, Europe and Australia. He was planning to target United States economic interests including gas/oil pipelines, power generating dams and strike ships/oil tankers through explosive laden speed boats in International waters.

Through this critical arrest yet another fatal blow has been delivered to Al Qaeda. This operation was planned and conducted with technical assistance of United State Intelligence Agencies with whom Inter Services Intelligence has a strong, historic intelligence relationship. Both Pakistan and United States intelligence agencies continue to work closely together to enhance security of their respective nations.The intimate cooperation between Pakistan and United States Intelligence agencies has resulted into prevention of number of high profile terrorist acts not only inside Pakistan/United States but elsewhere also in world.

Chaudhry Nisar Should Stop Anti-Agency Conspiracy Theories

Filed under: india,ISI,PML-N,politics — Tags: , , — admin @ 7:30 am

Chaudhry NisarChaudhry Nisar has opposed DG ISI at every turn. When he was up for extension, PML-N leader opposed the consideration for Gen Pasha. After the extension was granted, Chaudhry Nisar complained when DG ISI visited America for discussions with his counterpart of that country even though this is a routine practice for high level officers to visit just as Director CIA Leon Panetta has visited Islamabad also. Now, as political parties are working together, PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar is sounding like he is making audition for India TV by saying agencies are a hidden hand behind every move of the political parties.

Rather than parroting anti-Pakistan conspiracy theories about ISI scheming, Chaudhry Nisar should be focusing his energy and the attention of PML-N on the problems of inflation and security in the country. If Chaudhry Nisar thinks blaming DG ISI at every turn is a good strategy for PML-N he is quite incorrect. Political parties alliance should be welcomed by the people as it presents opportunity to reach agreement in the National Assembly on important legislation.

DEATH OF COLONEL IMAM PROVES JIHADI TREACHERY

Filed under: Taliban,terrorism — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 8:34 am
TREACHEROUS KILLERS OF COL IMAM

TREACHEROUS KILLERS OF COL IMAM

If it was not already apparent from the murder of Khalid Khawaja last year the death of Col Imam clearly proves that the jihadi militants are not allies or assets of Pakistan but operating with no regards to loyalty or nation.

It would be proper to note here that Col Imam was outspoken against the American strategies in Afghanistan rather he was proponent of dialogue with Taliban leaders to determine an acceptable political solution to the fighting. For his efforts, the jihadi militants murdered him.

He warned that American attempts to divide the Taliban by bribing commanders was doomed to failure. “Their strategy will not work,” he said. “This carrot-and-stick strategy is going to backfire badly.”

But the manner of the death of the “godfather of the Taliban” suggests that there were some thing he could not foresee – and that even the powerful spy agency has very limited influence over the militants within their own borders.

This should be a grave warning to those who continue to believe the lies of jihadi militants that they want a peace while they are at the same time killing our soldiers and our citizens. Even those who have raised them from the beginning and stood by their cause are being murdered.

Kamran Shafi Speaking SENSE!

Source: Dawn, “Silence is not an option”

Relatives and policemen carry the flag-draped coffin of Sifwat Ghuyur, a senior police officer, to a burial site during his funeral in Peshawar

Relatives and policemen carry the flag-draped coffin of Sifwat Ghuyur, a senior police officer, to a burial site during his funeral in Peshawar

Enough is bloody enough! Enough of deafening silence as our people, women, men and children, are mercilessly killed and maimed and widowed and orphaned by cold-blooded murderers and their handlers and motivators.

How many more Safwat Ghayyurs and Mushtaq Baigs and Faisal Alvis and Malik Saads and Abid Alis and Khan Raziqs will have to die before those who are equipped and paid to prevent, or at the very least anticipate attacks such as those that killed these fine men, will begin to do their jobs? Whilst I have started this piece with the mention of officers in the service of Pakistan, I am by no means making light of the deaths of thousands of nameless innocents such as the women and children in Meena Bazaar, Peshawar, or the hungry poor at Data Darbar, Lahore.

It is time that all of us Pakistanis stood up and loudly asked the establishment a raft of hard, even unpalatable to it, questions and demand answers. We must ask why it is that not a single suicide-jacket maker has been apprehended and prosecuted in all the years that these beasts have been going about their ghastly business. We must ask why not even one explosives supplier has been caught and brought before a court of law. We must ask why not one, just one, motivator has been exposed and locked up so that he may not spread his poison any more.

We must ask why not even one facilitator, people who move these mindless creatures with explosives strapped to their bodies from one place to another, has been arrested and put away. Or why even one suicide attack or car bombing has not been prevented by our much-praised ‘agencies’. We must ask why high-profile officers such as young Safwat Ghayyur were not provided such intelligence cover as would have uncovered the surely elaborate plan hatched by the terrorists to get this officer.

We must ask how it was that the man who apparently fit the profile of a suicide bomber almost perfectly: young, hanging about outside a sensitive agency (the Frontier Constabulary headquarters) waiting for his quarry; probably wild-eyed, entered Peshawar cantonment in the first place. I went to Peshawar a few weeks ago and it took my wife and I and our driver a full three minutes of questioning, checking of our ID cards, opening the hood and the dickey of the car, having a soldier peer into the car and so on, before we were let through just one barricade. There were three within the cantonment before we got to where we were going and the procedure was repeated at each one, albeit in abbreviated fashion. So how did that misguided, mindless youth stroll into the secure area to do his dreadful deed?

We must ask too, what is the very first duty of any agency of any state. Surely it is the protection of its own people first and foremost, and as the end result of that the protection of the country as a whole. We must ask if our much-talked-about agencies are succeeding in these primary duties. We must ask if the attacks that have robbed so many of our people of their very lives are the direct result of a massive and ongoing intelligence failure. The frank answer is that the ‘agencies’ have failed and are failing all ends up in doing their primary duty: witness the audacious attacks by terrorists at any target of their choosing anywhere in the country, including that holy of holies, the GHQ. Including, indeed, on installations, and the transport, of the ISI itself.

Which reminds me. There is an email doing the rounds that tells us that our ISI is the best intelligence agency in the whole wide world. The ranking of the world’s intelligence agencies according to this email is as follows: our very own ISI (and more strength to it, I say), Mossad (Israel), MI-6 (UK), the CIA (US), MSS (China), BND (Germany), FSB (Russia), DGSE (France), RAW (India) and ASIS (Australia). Two immediate questions come to mind. If the ISI is really as good as it is made out to be, how come our country is in the state it is in? Second, if RAW is as bad as to be the 9th worst intelligence agency in the world, how come it can pull off actions as diverse as bombing Data Darbar and R.A. Bazaar in Lahore and Lahore cantonment respectively; arming and provisioning Baloch separatists; and attacking our Ahmadi brothers in their mosques in Lahore? Could it be that RAW is not as bad as the list would have us believe, and the ISI not that good?

Jokes aside, however, we must ask the hard questions and also make demands of our agencies, paid as they are from our taxes and revenue. The very first is to say to them to please secure our own country first and then attempt to project Pakistani power across our borders, say in Afghanistan. It is to say, please use all the significant resources at your command — the list referred to also tells us that the ISI has up to 10,0000 (I kid you not) operatives worldwide — to at the very least open the Thal-Parachinar road so that the poor people who live in Parachinar do not have to get to their homes via Kabul, Afghanistan.

May I say please, sirs, sort out the criminal terrorists in your own country before you attempt to broker peace between Karzai and (some of) the Taliban. May I say please, sirs, if you cannot secure your own country how can you possibly have the gall to boss the neighbourhood around? Look inwards, sirs, at the veritable mess this poor country is in and do something about it. Surely you know that the last time the Parachinar road was opened, 10 men and six women were killed and eight men (all of them our Shia brothers and sisters, please note) were taken as hostages. At least find out where these poor hostages are, and have them released. Surely being number one you can do it.

U.S., Pakistan reap benefits of cooperation against Taliban

Filed under: Taliban — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 1:02 pm

Mullah Abdul Baradar is the most senior member of the Afghan Taliban captured in the eight-year war against the movement.

The joint raid conducted by U.S. and Pakistani special forces suggests a change in tactics by Pakistan’s ISI military intelligence service. For years ISI was reluctant to target the Taliban, a movement initially cultivated by Pakistan to counter Indian influence in Afghanistan.

For more, Daljit Dhaliwal interviews Dr. Hassan Abbas, a former Pakistani government official who is now with the Asia Society and the Quaid-i-Azam Chair Professor at Columbia University’s South Asian Institute.

Attack on Ashura an Attack on Pakistan

 

Taliban bombs Ashura procession in Karachi

Taliban bombs Ashura procession in Karachi

Cowardly Taliban bombers have attacked the Ashura procession in Karachi, killing 20 people and injuring at least 40 more. This is an act of war on Pakistan by Taliban militants coming only days after these same try to say they want to have ‘talks.’ How can there be talks with such butchers of innocent Pakistanis? How can these animals commit the murder of innocent Muslims on one day and then expect us to believe them when they say they are not against us?

Do not misunderstand. This is no sectarian war. This has nothing to do with Sunni or Shia or any other religious sect. Only it is meant to sow hatred and violence. Taliban and its associated militant groups like Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi are trying to turn Pakistan into a land of sectarian violence like what erupted in Iraq after Saddam Hussein.

But Pakistan is stronger than this. Pakistan was born as a land where Muslims could practice their religion. Actually, Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was Shia. So this attack on an Ashura procession in Karachi is not only an attack on those innocents, it is a direct attack on Quaid-i-Azam. It is a direct attack on the essence of Pakistan.

For Taliban or any other group to murder innocent Muslims for doing exactly this has no excuse. This is an act of war on Pakistan and must be met with full military retaliation against these groups. National security agencies like ISI and and MI should be rooting out not only the leaders of these groups but the mindless foot soldiers that are taking their orders and committing such acts of barbarity.

US-Pakistan Partnership Vital to Pakistan Security

US Gen. David Petraus and Pakistan Army Chief Ashfaq Kayani Meet

US Gen. David Petraus and Pakistan Army Chief Ashfaq Kayani Meet

US. Gen David Petraus met with Army Chief Gen. Kayani yesterday and discussed the current security crisis, and two important points of information came out of the meetings: First, the military is committed to supporting the civilian government. Second, a long-term US-Pakistan partnership is vital to Pakistan’s national security.

On the first point, an article in Dawn today quotes the American General saying he discussed the possibility of a coup with Gen. Kayani and was told that the military has no plans for a coup and is committed to supporting the democratically-elected civilian government.

In a briefing with Pakistani journalists during a visit to Islamabad, Petraeus said Pakistan’s military had told him it was not interested in destabilizing the elected civilian government.

‘I have seen no indication that (army chief) General Ashfaq Kayani is entertaining such a notion,’ local newspapers on Tuesday quoted Petraeus as telling reporters at the US ambassador’s residence when asked about his meeting with Kayani.

‘Whenever we have talked to them they say they are committed to democratically elected civilian government.’

This should put to rest predictions such as those made by Shaheen Sehbai in yesterday’s The News that the US “has almost categorically declared that they are no longer interested in saving President Asif Ali Zardari if he falls in his current battle for survival.”

The second point was described in The New York Times yesterday in an article about the meeting between the American and Pakistani Generals. This article details discussions between the two military leaders about cooperation in the fight against Taliban and jihadis in both Afghanistan and Pakistan both.

The article notes that the Pakistani military has been trying to make a delicate balance as it relates to Siraj Haqqani. The difficulty in attacking the Haqqani network of jihadis comes from a skepticism about the American dedication to the region. After all is said and done, if the Americans abandon the region, Pakistan must choose the best course of action to secure its border with Afghanistan and build its strength and influence in the region.

The core reason for Pakistan’s imperviousness is its scant faith in the Obama troop surge, and what Pakistan sees as the need to position itself for a regional realignment in Afghanistan once American forces begin to leave.

It considers Mr. Haqqani and his control of large areas of Afghan territory vital to Pakistan in the jostling for influence that will pit Pakistan, India, Russia, China and Iran against one another in the post-American Afghan arena, the Pakistani officials said.

Pakistan is particularly eager to counter the growing influence of its archenemy, India, which is pouring $1.2 billion in aid into Afghanistan. “If America walks away, Pakistan is very worried that it will have India on its eastern border and India on its western border in Afghanistan,” said Tariq Fatemi, a former Pakistani ambassador to the United States who is pro-American in his views.

For that reason, Mr. Fatemi said, the Pakistani Army is “very reluctant” to jettison Mr. Haqqani, Pakistan’s strong card in Afghanistan. Moreover, the Pakistanis do not want to alienate Mr. Haqqani because they consider him an important player in reconciliation efforts that they would like to see get under way in Afghanistan immediately, the officials said.

Because Mr. Haqqani shelters Qaeda leaders and operatives in North Waziristan, Washington is opposed to including Mr. Haqqani among the possible reconcilable Taliban, at least for the moment, a Western diplomat said.

But this is a dangerous game of strategy that has already resulted in the current security crisis. For decades, the military used jihadis as a force of defense against Indian meddling in Kashmir and Afghanistan and it has allowed the build up of those groups to become a real threat to Pakistan.

Pakistan currently has its hands full fighting the Pakistani Taliban in South Waziristan and other places, and it is beyond its capacity to open another front against the Afghan Taliban, the officials said of General Kayani’s response. The offensive has had the secondary effect of constraining the Haqqani network in North Waziristan and driving some of its commanders and fighters across the border to Afghanistan, senior American military officials in Afghanistan said.

But implicit in General Kayani’s reply was the fact that the homegrown Pakistani Taliban represent the real threat to Pakistan. General Kayani argued that they are the ones carrying out attacks against security installations and civilian markets in Pakistan’s cities and must be the army’s top priority, the officials said.

Pakistan has its own problems to deal with in the TTP and LeT groups that are now daily committing bombings and attacks inside Pakistan. As the Haqqani network is primarily operating in Pakistan which should give the Americans the opportunity to eliminate him themselves. This is the position of Pakistani security officials.

But making a separate peace with Haqqani is not a sustainable strategy, and risks increased and prolonged attacks inside Paksitan.

For his part, Mr. Haqqani fights in Afghanistan, and is considered more of an asset than a threat by the Pakistanis. But he is the most potent force fighting the United States, American and Pakistani officials agree.

He has subcommanders threaded throughout eastern and southern Afghanistan. His fighters control Paktika, Paktia and Khost Provinces in Afghanistan, which lie close to North Waziristan. His men are also strong in Ghazni, Logar and Wardak Provinces, the officials said.

Looking back, it was a mistaken strategy by both the Americans and our own military to make deals with jihadis to be security assets. Whether the countries were using the mujahedeen to fight against the Soviets or the Indians, once those battles were finished, it was impossible to put the monster back in its cage.

How the Taliban repays deals. Destoryed school in Pakistan.

How the Taliban repays deals. Destoryed school in Pakistan.

This time, we must not repeat past mistakes. While making deals with the likes of Siraj Haqqani or TTP or any other jihadi network will only bring possible short-term gains, those deals will surely result in long term setbacks. The best strategy for maintaining Pakistan’s security long-term is to build the trust with the Americans so that Gen. Petraeus does not abandon us. Already there are good signs that he will not leave us.

But also we should work together to root out the jihadi forces so that they can be defeated once and for all, leaving Pakistan stronger and more influential in the region. Partnering with jihadis will not provide this strength. Only partnering with Gen. Petraeus will.
