Talkhaba interviews Robert Anderson, an ex-undercover CIA operative, who opines that “the release of Davis in my opinion is just a green light for more killings and assassinations by the US government and the CIA in your country.”
My big problem is that neither the US nor the Pakistani media report on the real (strategic) reasons for the expansion of the US war on terror into Pakistan – or about the CIA training and funding of Baloch separatists in the tribal areas. In fact, many Pakistani analysts see Pakistan – not Afghanistan – as the real target.
The Pentagon/CIA make no secret of their desire to see energy and mineral rich Balochistan secede from Pakistan to become a US client state – just like energy and mineral rich Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and the other former Soviet republics. Moreover it’s virtually impossible to distinguish terrorist acts by the Baloch Liberation Army from those committed by the Taliban or Al Qaeda -especially around the Chinese-built Gwadar Port in Gwadar, Balochistan (the energy transit route for Iranian oil and natural gas destined for China). Given that both China and Iran are both major political/economic rivals, it’s a pity the US media doesn’t report on any of this.
I blog about this at “Our CIA freedom fighters in Pakistan”
