Pakistani agents 'funding and training Afghan Taliban'

Pakistani agents 'funding and training Afghan Taliban' 13 Jun 2010 Pakistani intelligence gives funding, training and sanctuary to the Afghan Taliban on a scale much larger than previously thought, a report says. Taliban field commanders interviewed for the report suggested that ISI intelligence agents even attend Taliban supreme council meetings. Support for the Afghan Taliban was "official ISI policy", the London School of Economics (LSE) authors suggest. [As part of the 'Pakistan stimulus,' the US government gives Pakistan hundreds of millions in military aid. Guess what? That means the US is funding both sides of the Afghan war so the US can continue running its opium routes.]
