Pakistan: ISI closes political wing

Deadpan Thoughts reports that the political wing of Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI ceased its operation after three decades of spying on politicians and fixing political deals.

    When I read this claim for the first time, i didn’t believe it. I hope that this is an action in actuality and not just a “political” move to disguise the politics that have been guiding the ISI for so long.

    It is naive to think ISI would give up its power that easy.
    In fact they will eliminate anyone who comes in the way in Pakistan or overseas.
