image The New York Times reports this morning after Wikileaks leaked 91,000 Afghan war documents some of them revealed that the aid that the United States gave to Pakistan was, shall we say, counterproductive:

Americans fighting the war in Afghanistan have long harbored strong suspicions that Pakistan’s military spy service has guided the Afghan insurgency with a hidden hand, even as Pakistan receives more than $1 billion a year from Washington for its help combating the militants, according to a trove of secret military field reports made public Sunday.

The documents, made available by an organization called WikiLeaks, suggest that Pakistan, an ostensible ally of the United States, allows representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders.

Taken together, the reports indicate that American soldiers on the ground are inundated with accounts of a network of Pakistani assets and collaborators that runs from the Pakistani tribal belt along the Afghan border, through southern Afghanistan, and all the way to the capital, Kabul.

What a deal!  $1 Billion dollars for Pakistan’s ISI to help Taliban kill our soldiers.  This doesn’t surprise me however.  I’ve always been suspicious of Pakistan’s ally status.  I understand on one hand why the aid has been given, but on the other it’s obvious that it hasn’t achieved the expected outcome.

Maybe it’s time to stop giving countries who want to kill us money.  Just saying.

  1. This is an example of why the government does not like having journalists reporting on anything and everything. Reports like this, without fully understanding the context of the situation, can be misunderstood and somewhat misleading. That leads to a whole other bunch of problems that the government can never explain and simply doesn’t want to explain.
