Nato contractors 'bombing own vehicles' in Pakistan

As CLG has asserted from the get-go: Nato contractors 'bombing own vehicles' in Pakistan --'The deputy later told the police that he had been told to plant the bomb by the contractor.' 06 Oct 2010 The owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to Nato in Afghanistan say some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious. They say there is evidence to suggest that bombs have been planted in many of vehicles by the Nato contractors... Dost Mohammad, an oil tanker owner from Nowshera district, said a Nato contractor had recently been caught trying to plant a bomb in an oil tanker. "This happened in the area of Paiyee, when he was putting the bomb under the vehicle." "At that time, a few men also opened fire on the tankers. The deputy later told the police that he had been told to plant the bomb by the contractor." Dost Mohammad said the contractor had apparently sold off the fuel first. "Only 2,000 litres from the original 50,000 litres had been left in the tanker to cover up the crime," he said. Dost Mohammad said it is a win-win situation for the contractors. [But not the US taxpayers. It is manifest to me that the actual *terrorists* comprise the US government and its sub-contractors. --LRP]
