Splodey Ho™ Kills 4 Outside Of Pakistani Hospital
When children aren't available for the terrorists, females will do
"The woman, in her early 20s, blew up her explosives as she walked to the main entrance of the hospital. Authorities have found the attackers head and legs and are conducting a detailed investigation," said Sarwar, an assistant political agent in the tribal region.Her head here, legs there, defines Splodey Ho's™ - this is her body:
Officials said the bomber apparently targeted security men guarding the hospital.
Hospital officials said four other people were also injured in the bombing.
Agency health officer, Mohd Riaz, said the dead included one security personnel and two civilians, while one of the dead was a hospital worker.

Good News: Pakistani Terror Group Recruits Best and Brightest
Take a few million Indians, convince them that being Muslim makes them a different "nationality" than the rest of those around them, found an Islamic Republic, and this is what you get:
Imagine a terrorist group that recruits tens of thousands of young men from the same neighborhoods and social networks as the Pakistani military. A group whose well-educated recruits defy the idea that poverty and ignorance breed extremism. A group whose fighters include relatives of a politician, a senior Army officer and a director of Pakistan's Atomic Energy Commission.The sooner we get out of Afghanistan the sooner we can end the farce that Pakistan is our "ally".
That is the disconcerting reality of Lashkar-e-Taiba, one of the world's most dangerous militant organizations, according to a study released today by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. The report helps explain why Pakistan has resisted international pressure to crack down on Lashkar after it killed 166 people in Mumbai -- six U.S. citizens included -- and came close to sparking conflict between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India.

Sandcrawler PSA: Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and You
Read SOFREPS series on the Islamist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. As we know of many Pakistian Islamist groups no matter how you spell it, its still says Qaeda al-Jihad.
On January 10, 2013, three bombs exploded in the city of Quetta, Pakistan. The first bomb went off in the early hours in a food market. It killed 12 people and injured 47. The United Baloch Army claimed responsibility. The second and third bombs went off in a one-two punch later in the evening hours. A suicide bomber hit a snooker hall popular with Shias, and ten minutes later, after police and journalists arrived on the scene, another bomb exploded just outside the building. The evening death toll was 96 people, with over 170 injured in the blasts, the majority of victims were Shias. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the latter attacks.Part II of the series is here.
On February 22, the Punjab Police released their ‘Most Wanted Terrorists’ list, naming 109 men. The first surprise – not a single member of Lashkar-e-Taiba [LeT], the terror organization responsible for the brutal massacre in Mumbai in 2008, made the list. 109 slots – no LeT. Topping the updated Pakistan terror list is Lashkar-e-Jhangvi [LeJ], the terror outfit who, according to Interior Minister Malik, is responsible for or tied to 80 percent of terror activities in Pakistan.
On September 20, 2011 a bus full of Pakistani citizens departed Quetta for Taftan, Balochistan on pilgrimage. En route to the Iranian border, the bus was intercepted by gunmen from Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. Kushal Khan, the bus driver, says that 8-10 gunmen in jeeps came in from the opposite direction, blocking the bus. The men were armed with AK-47s and RPGs. Once the bus was stopped, the gunmen boarded the bus and ordered the passengers off the bus.Read the rest.
As firing began, people started running like headless chickens,” Rajab Ali, a survivor, told The Express Tribune, at the District Headquarters Hospital in Quetta. “One of the assailants was filming the incident.”

Looks Like Internet Anthropologist Hit a Soft Spot
Reading Gerald's post on Pakistani ISI's involvement in the hiding of Osama bin-Laden seems to have upset Altaf Hussain leader of the Muttahida Quami.
SI did have OBL house under surveillance, as part of ISI General command agreement. OBL wasn't to be directly involved in any terrorist activities.And ISI was watching the comings and goings at OBL's house.The above brought Altaf Hussain out of the woodwork to deflect the report with accusations of, you know, Juice!
The ISI surveillance team noted choppers but didn't report anything till they heard gun fire and reported in and also called the police.
But ISI did go thru channels and produced the only smoking gun, they dispatched two Pak jets to a private residence. Which revealed their knowledge
of who was living there by dispatching the jets.
The pak jets were intercepted by S jets and lit up their HUDs, withwarnings of being lit up by US jets before the US jets were even with in Pak jets radar range.
Your thoughts betray you.

Pakistan Arrests Man Tied to Daniel Pearl Kidnapping ... Again
Since this is the second time Qari Abdul Hayee, a Lashkar-e-Jhangvi leader has been arrested, we'll keep our fingers crossed that it sticks this time. The last time he was acquitted and let go. I appears that his arrest has nothing to do with his group's involvement in the Daniel Pearl kidnapping -- the group is thought to have abducted Pearl before turning him over to al Qaeda. No, the group has recently been involved in a number of sectarian murders against Shias and others they consider "apostates".
The militant, Qari Abdul Hayee, a leader of the Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, was arrested by the paramilitary Rangers force on Sunday in Karachi, the city where Mr. Pearl was held hostage and killed.We'll see if this time there's more traction.
“We were after him for the past three weeks. We had information he was in Karachi,” said a senior Rangers official, speaking by phone on the condition of anonymity.

Pakistani Terrorists Use Bombs That Resemble Toys To Target Children
NOWSHERA, Pakistan – The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has decided to educate children about the dangers of toy-like bombs after militants allegedly targeted them recently with bombs disguised as candy, toys and even a string of ball-shaped explosives tied to a cricket bat.Cowards
The February 5 discovery of the string of bombs tied to the cricket bat in Akora Khattak, Nowshera District, reminded educators and parents of the militants' desire to harm children.
"The bombs were in the shape of cricket balls and tied up to the handle of the cricket bat and placed near the school to attract children," Rajab Ali, station house officer, told Central Asia Online then. "But locals informed the police in time, and the bombs were defused."

Pakistan Arrests Muslim Leader for Murdering Muslims that Weren't the Right Kind of Muslims
I guess arresting this guy is something. Just arrest another five or six million people and Pakistan might start marking a dent in the extremist population:
Pakistani police arrested Malik Ishaq, the leader of the al Qaeda-linked Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, at his home in Rahim Yar Khan, just one week after his terror group claimed credit for a bombing in Quetta that killed at least 90 people. Ishaq has been accused of direct involvement in numerous terrorist attacks but has never been convicted in a Pakistani court....Much more background here.
Last week, the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed credit for the murder of more than 90 Pakistanis, mostly minority Shia, after detonating nearly one ton of "high-grade" explosives in the capital of Baluchistan province. The Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has claimed credit for numerous terror attacks in Pakistan, and has released videos of executions of captured Shia prisoners.

'Key Al Qaeda Paramilitary Commander' Droned Recently In Pakistan
The US killed a senior al Qaeda military commander during a recent drone strike in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan.Sweet
Sheikh Yasin Al Kuwaiti, who was killed in a US drone strike on Jan. 8, was a "key al Qaeda paramilitary commander" who was "very high up the food chain," a US intelligence official who tracks the terror group in Pakistan's tribal areas told The Long War Journal. Sheikh Yasin was a top commander and trainer for the Lashkar al Zil, or Shadow Army, al Qaeda's military cadre [for more information on the the Lashkar al Zil, see LWJ report, Al Qaeda's paramilitary 'Shadow Army'].
Sheikh Yasin was also described as a "foreign tactical trainer" by Reuters and "a senior Al Qaeda operative" by Dawn on the day that he was reported killed.

"Good" Taliban Leader Killed Despite Pakistani Support --- UPDATE: More info
But then again, F*ck Pakistan -- UTA.
Two U.S. drone strikes on northwest Pakistan killed a senior Taliban commander who fought American forces in Afghanistan but had a truce with the Pakistani military, intelligence officials said Thursday.Although this information is from a Pakistani leak, Pakistani leaks also said they had no clue where Usama bin-Laden was. I hates every iota of a Taliban so even rumors of war perk my ears up a bit.
The commander, Maulvi Nazir, was among nine people killed in a missile strike on a house in the village of Angoor Adda in the South Waziristan tribal region near the border with Afghanistan late Wednesday night.
UPDATE by Rusty: More from Bill Roggio:
Nazir has been an influential Taliban commander and had ties to numerous terrorist groups operating in the region, including al Qaeda, the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban, and the plethora of Pakistani and Central Asia jihadist groups operating in the region. He has openly supported Taliban emir Mullah Omar and al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and wages jihad in Afghanistan...Pakistan considered him a good Taliban? Well, he wasn't. But he is now.
Pakistan's military and intelligence services consider Nazir and his followers "good Taliban" as they do not openly seek the overthrow of the Pakistani state and only wage jihad in Afghanistan. The government has negotiated several peace deals with Nazir. Yet Nazir continued to provide safe have to top al Qaeda leaders and the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, despite agreeing not to do so.

Islamists Celebrate New Year in Traditional Matter: Bombing, Murdering
At least four people were killed and over 40 injured on Tuesday evening when a powerful bomb went off in Karachi’s Federal B Area, less than half a kilometre from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) [a liberal secular party] headquarters Nine-Zero.In other parts of the country, they murdered 7 aid workers for the crime of helping children.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the blast that took place soon after the conclusion of a rally organised by the MQM and Minhaj-ul-Quran International at Jinnah Ground in Azizabad. The MQM announced a day of mourning today (Wednesday).

Good News: Pakistan Frees Taliban's Justice Minister
You know, the guy the Taliban had in charge of chopping off heads and stoning women.
Pakistan has freed the Afghan Taliban's ex-justice minister, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi, and three other Taliban prisoners, officials say.The Islamists showed their appreciation by immediately murdering 21 Pakistani police.
Afghan officials have been in talks with Pakistani counterparts to try to free certain Taliban prisoners in order to push forward a peace process.
Pakistan released 13 Afghan Taliban members in November.
You give concessions, the terrorists don't and then they kill you. See how this works?

Let There Be Polio in Pakistan: Love, The Taliban
ISI Taliban still calling the shots in Pakistan?
Five female Pakistani polio vaccination workers have been shot dead in a string of co-ordinated attacks - four within 20 minutes across Karachi.Wait, are they afraid we will find **Zawahiri's location? Certainly he must be hiding in plain site like bin Laden was. Just a thought, mind you.
The fifth woman was shot and wounded in the city of Peshawar in the north-west and later died of her injuries.
A UN-backed programme to eradicate polio - which is endemic in Pakistan - has been suspended in Karachi[...]
Pakistani health officials said the latest three-day nationwide anti-polio drive - during which an estimated 5.2 million polio drops were to be administered - had been suspended in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city with a population of 18 million.
There has been opposition to such immunisation drives in parts of Pakistan, **particularly after a fake CIA hepatitis vaccination campaign helped to locate Osama Bin Laden in 2011.[More...]
However, may those who murdered those workers have their testes tied off and before they are to be cut - pour fuel on them and light a match.

Pakistan: Al Qaeda Linked Lashkar e Jhangvi's Threat Letter To All Shias
They threatened to kill them all in order to turn Pakistan into a Sunni state.
After the 2011 Hazara Town shooting Lashkar e Jhangvi exclusively talked about Hazara Town shooting in one of their night letters distributed in Quetta by LeJ Balochistan Unit. Please find the English translation of the letter as following[Read the letter]h/t @Mirza_bedil
In August of this year, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ)(aka Lashkar i Jhangvi) published a beheading video of two Pakistani Shias
In the video, two Shia men are filmed for nearly half an hour before they are brought outside and seated on the ground with their hands tied behind their backs. Standing behind them are four masked Lashkar-e-Jhangvi fighters; two are holding a red banner with crossed swords.In January of 2003, they were put on the St. Dept's list of FTO
Two of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi fighters then pull out knives, and proceed to behead the two Shia men. The victims' heads are then placed on their laps. The jihadists then wipe their knives on the clothes of the slain men.
A jihadist on the Hanein forum, who posted in Arabic, said the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi "is allied to Taliban-Pakistan and has a close relationship with it," according to SITE, which translated the message.
"Most of the operations against the Shi'ites [in Pakistan], if not all of them, are carried out by this group," the jihadist continued.
He also said the group carried out a suicide attack in Afghanistan against Shia last year, presumably a reference to the Dec. 6, 2011 attack that killed more than 50 Shia worshipers outside a mosque in the capital of Kabul. The Lashkar-e-Jhanghvi al Almi claimed credit for that attack [see LWJ report, Suicide bomber kills scores in attack at Kabul mosque]

Anjem Choudary's Shariah4Pakistan Not Welcome - In Pakistan
We were thus spared the presence of these two hate-mongers [Anjem & Omar the goat humping Bakri Mohammed..ed] at a so-called ‘Sharia for Pakistan conference’ that was announced to be held at Lal Masjid today after the Khateeb of the mosque announced he had nothing to do with the project that had the following agenda: 1) The Kufr Constitution of Pakistan; 2) Declaration of Fatwa on Malala; 3) MA Jinnah, The Traitor of Islam; 4) The Apostasy of Asif Ali Zardari; and 5) The Transformation of Pakistan under the Sharia.Maybe they could hold a conference in the tribal areas? You know, the area where drones are abundant? I think that would be a good idea...
The poster that appeared in Islamabad and on the Internet was something to behold. In the background, the Quaid’s mausoleum had a sniper’s cross-hairs on it; in the foreground the Quaid; President Zardari; and Malala[Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban..ed] were seen engulfed in flames. And Anjem Choudary says he is in the UK to ‘civilise’ people! Disgusting creature.
However, all’s well that ends well, and thank the Lord we don’t have to see the ugly spectacle of this cursed conference. Let us then end on a light note, but which holds a warning for those who leap before thinking of the consequences.

Pakistani Shia Celebrate Holiday w/ Traditional Bloody Child Abuse
Pakistani Sunni Celebrate Holiday w/ Traditional Murdering of Shia
Ashoura is a Shia holiday marking the defeat of Muhammad's grandson by those who would one day be known as Sunni Muslims who claimed that the leader of the Islamic state didn't need to be a direct descendent.
They do this in the traditional manner: abusing their children.
And how do Sunni extremists in Pakistan celebrate the holiday? Also in the traditional manner: by blowing up Muslims who aren't the right kind of Muslims.

"Love the Prophet Day" Celebrated by Killing 15 (Death Toll Rising)
I guess this is the Islamic version of Christmas. Personally, I always look forward to December when I can celebrate Jesus' birth and life by going out and killing a bunch of people who I think disrespected Him.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Protests over an anti-Muslim film turned violent Friday across Pakistan, with police firing tear gas and live ammunition at thousands of demonstrators who threw rocks and set fire to buildings. At least 15 people were killed and dozens were injured.
Muslims also marched in at least a half-dozen other countries, with some burning American flags and effigies of U.S. President Barack Obama. [...]
The Pakistani government declared Friday to be a national holiday — "Love for the Prophet Day" — and encouraged peaceful protests.

News? Pakistan Sees US as "Worst Enemy", not al Qaeda/Taliban/Haqqanis
Ok, let's be honest here: is any one really surprised by the "revelation" that the Pakistani ISI views the US as the biggest threat rather than al Qaeda, the Taliban, or the Haqqanis?
This is news in the sense that someone in Pakistan dares say it out loud. Normally, this is the kind of talk that gets people in Pakistan killed.
So, yeah, this is news in that sense.
Yet, the very fact that it is so rarely articulated makes it fascinating nonetheless:
“They said ‘The Americans are our worst enemies, worse than the Indians,’” [the Pakistani doctor jailed for helping the CIA find bin Laden, Shakil] Afridi, who spoke from inside Peshawar Central Jail, said as he recalled the brutal interrogation and torture he suffered after he was initially detained.As to the extent to which the Pakistanis are funding the terrorists in the Haqqani network? Well, I find this completely believable:
“I tried to argue that America was Pakistan’s biggest supporter – billions and billions of dollars in aid, social and military assistance -- but all they said was, ‘These are our worst enemies. You helped our enemies.’”
Afridi said that before he was moved to Peshawar in May, he met Abdul Kayyum, the nephew of a chief of the Wazir tribe, who had been apprehended by the ISI for reasons that are unclear.Not a revelation, per se, but still pretty damned annoying.
Kayyum explained to the doctor that three years earlier, his uncle, Khan Marjakee, had been instructed by the ISI to raise funds from the tribal community for the Haqqanis, which Marjakee then did.
“Without doubt, the Haqqanis are 100 percent supported by the ISI,” said Afridi.
He then goes on to say that Arabs -- presumably al Qaeda recruits -- caught by the ISI are sent packing to Afghanistan:
The militants were told by the ISI, ‘According to the Americans, we’re supposed to arrest you. We don’t want anything to do with you, but will support you by letting you go. Go back to Afghanistan and steer clear of the Americans.’ And then they would be released.”But apparently the same courtesy isn't extended to white guys caught trying to get to Afghanistan. White guys are routinely abused. I guess the ISI doesn't think it can go so far as to let them go. Or maybe they just don't like white guys. Anti-colonialism, and all that jazz.
Oh, and there's an American:
Afridi would talk to an American, referred to only as Brown, as the doctor was the only person who spoke fluent English there.This news about "Ismael Brown" is intriguing. Any speculation on who this guy is?
Brown was held for four months after he crossed illegally into Pakistan from Iran and was arrested in the southwest city of Quetta, notorious for its links with the Taliban. He had told the ISI he was on his way to Afghanistan.
“He was white skinned, had red hair and tattoos,” Afridi said. “He was a mason by profession and told me he came for jihad. He had converted to Islam five years before and had adopted the Muslim name Ismael.
“When he came back from interrogation, he told me he had been beaten very seriously. I last saw him on May 1. I have no idea what happened to him.”
Thanks to you-know-who.

Haqqani Network to be Declared Terrorist Org
Well, it's about five years too late, but it's something. State Department Press Release:
Today, I [Sec. State Hilary Clinton] have sent a report to Congress saying that the Haqqani Network meets the statutory criteria of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). This action meets the requirements of the Haqqani Network Terrorist Designation Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-168). Based on that assessment, I notified Congress of my intent to designate the Haqqani Network as an FTO [Foreign Terrorist Organization] under the INA. I also intend to designate the organization as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity under Executive Order 13224.Since we know the Pakistanis support the Haqqani network, doesn't this now make Pakistan a state sponsor of terror?
The consequences of these designations include a prohibition against knowingly providing material support or resources to, or engaging in other transactions with, the Haqqani Network, and the freezing of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States, or the control of U.S. persons. These actions follow a series of other steps that the U.S. government already has taken against the Haqqanis. The Department of State previously designated key Haqqani Network leaders under E.O. 13224, and the Department of the Treasury has designated other militants with ties to the Haqqanis under the same authority. We also continue our robust campaign of diplomatic, military, and intelligence pressure on the network, demonstrating the United States’ resolve to degrade the organization’s ability to execute violent attacks.
I take this action in the context of our overall strategy in Afghanistan, the five lines of effort that President Obama laid out when he was in Afghanistan in May: increasing the capacity of Afghan security forces to fight insurgents; transitioning to Afghan security lead; building an enduring partnership with Afghanistan; pursuing Afghan-led reconciliation; and putting together an international consensus to support peace and stability in the region. We will continue to work with both Afghanistan and Pakistan to move these efforts forward and build a more peaceful and secure future.

Children Hardest Hit by bin Laden Raid
Pakistan is accusing six foreign aid workers of helping the CIA in the lead up to the bin Laden raid. And this time, it's the children who are literally hardest hit:
Pakistani authorities have ordered six foreigners working for the aid group Save the Children to leave the country, officials said Thursday, suggesting the aid workers had been helping a foreign spy agency operating on Pakistani soil....
The Pakistani authorities have previously alleged that Save the Children was linked to the CIA's search in Pakistan for Osama bin Laden, accusations the organization has long denied. Bin Laden was killed in a U.S. Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan in May 2011.

Pakistani Imam 'Planted' Pages Of A Koran To Bag Of Christian Child Accused Of Burning A Koran
A Pakistani imam has been remanded in custody, accused of planting pages ofWhat, no angry crowds screaming for his death?
thea [fixed it for yah..ed] Koran among burnt pages in the bag of a Christian girl held for blasphemy.
The girl was detained two weeks ago near the capital Islamabad after an angry mob demanded she be punished.
Imam Khalid Chishti allegedly told a witness that this was a "way of getting rid of Christians", a prosecutor said[...]
"The imam was arrested after his deputy Maulvi Zubair and two others told a magistrate he added pages from
thea [fixed it for yah...ed] Koran to the burnt pages brought to him by a witness," an investigator Munir Hussain Jaffri said.
He said Mr Zubair and some others had told the imam not to interfere, urging him to "give the evidence to the police as he got it".
According to Mr Jaffri, Imam Chishti had told them: "You know this is the only way to expel the Christians from this area."

Pakistan: Even The Disabled Aren't Safe From Blasphemy Laws
"A furious crowd" of Shariah loving Pakistanis ordered this disabled girl be punished. Cowardly Pakistani police complied:
Pakistan's president has ordered a report into the arrest of a girl with mental disabilities, reportedly as young as 11, accused of desecrating pages of the Koran.Apparently, the girl had pages of "a" Koran in a garbage bag or something.
Police say the girl was arrested last week in a Christian area of the capital, Islamabad, after a furious crowd demanded she be punished.
Officials said the girl could not properly answer police questions.
Her parents have been taken into protective custody following threats.
Many other Christian families have fled the neighbourhood after unrest erupted. Reports say that police arrested her under pressure from the large crowd.
It is thought that the girl has Down's syndrome, which is a congenital condition that causes various degrees of learning difficulties and certain physical abnormalities.
Update: I thought this was a double post, but as it turns out it isn't. Howie's post has the original arrest report
Update II: Xariif, our resident Islamist troll said this:
Zioshi tLong-Awaited Messiah (aka Jewish King) is an Imposter, a Deceiver, and a LiarDivorce myself? Like I married myself?
This is a lie from the evil woman named Stable Hand. As a zioshit woman, her zioshit religion demands her to ride back in the bus, to shave her hair, and to make sure she can never divorce herself

Good News: Taliban Expect Windfall of Convoy Protection Money to Finance Afghan Jihad
That's not to mention the legitimate charge that Pakistan requires from each truck, some of which will go to their intelligence arm the ISI who will in turn use it to finance Jihad.
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- As the United States trumpeted its success in persuading Pakistan to end its seven-month blockade of supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, another group privately cheered its good fortune: the Taliban.Like I said, I'd truck the whole damned army up through Russia and Eastern Europe to whatever ports are available despite the cost. Because whatever that cost is it can't be more than the cost of trusting the Pakistanis.
Pakistan reopened the supply route in early July after the U.S. apologized for the deaths of the soldiers.
"Stopping these supplies caused us real trouble," a Taliban commander who leads about 60 insurgents in eastern Ghazni province told The Associated Press in an interview. "Earnings dropped down pretty badly. Therefore the rebellion was not as strong as we had planned."
A second Taliban commander who controls several dozen fighters in southern Kandahar province said the money from security companies was a key source of financing for the insurgency, which uses it to pay fighters and buy weapons, ammunition and other supplies.
"We are able to make money in bundles," the commander told the AP by telephone. "Therefore, the NATO supply is very important for us."

"Toy Bomb" Hits Intended Target: Children
The suspects in this case being the Pakistani Taliban. The grammatical errors are explained by the fact that this is a Pakistani newspaper:
At least seven children were wounded in a toy bomb blast in Dara Adam Khel, a small town near Kohat, officials said.Sick bastards.
According to local Political Agent, children were playing with toy bomb which exploded resulting in injuries to seven minors.
Local residents rushed to the scene and shifted wounded kids to Peshawar Hospital.
Medical officials in Peshawar told the media that condition of two was critical while lives of rest of victims were out of danger.
Pakistan Wants Drone Control
Our allies Pakistan.
The new chief of Pakistan's spy agency will urge the United States to end drone strikes on Pakistani soil and identify targets that the country's security forces can then attack, a senior intelligence official said.Dear Mr. Islam, We were born at night, but not last night. We all know what would happen if we did that. The targets would be forewarned by the ISI and by the time any drones arrived there would be no target. Or Pakistan would veto or demonstrate intentional incompetence in hitting said targets. I mean you couldn't even find bin-Laden in your own back yard, and yeah we all believed that was due to your incompetence.
Lt. Gen. Zahirul Islam will deliver the message during a meeting with the head of the CIA on August 2, said the Pakistani intelligence official, who did not want to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media.
"You (the U.S.) develop a target and let us hit it," Islam will tell CIA Director David Petraeus, the official said. "It would be ideal if the U.S. provides drone technology to Pakistan."

Video: It's Pretty Easy for a Terrorist to Get a Fake Pakistani Passport
One official quoted in the story calls it, "An open door to al Qaeda." You really need to watch the video to see how unbelievably easy it is for a terrorist to get a passport in Pakistan.
And to put this into perspective: 150,000 Pakistani rupees is slightly less than $1,600 US pesos.
I don't know if that's just the politician's cut of it, the cost of the fake Olympic visa, or the package deal for the whole scam, but even if that figure represents only 1/3 of the cost then you're only talking a measly $5000 or so for a member of one of Pakistan's numerous jihadi groups to get a free pass to travel the globe.
If I was Ace-of-Spades, I'd say the sh*t just got real. But I'm not and I'm not that witty. Instead I'll just leave it at we're boned. Big time.
The most important post-9/11 security program for keeping bad guys out of the country is the no-fly list. But the basic point of information on that list is the name of the passenger coming into the country. Alter that name on a passport -- and remember, these aren't fake passports, these are real passports with a fake name on them -- and we're uber boned.
This should also remind us that much of the tenuous relationship that exists between the US and our "allies" in Pakistan has to do with the failed state nature of that country. Pakistan is not now nor has ever been a modern nation state in any sense of the term. This starts with the fact that they do not control much of the territory that they claim is under their sovereignty, but stretches right into the fact that their so-called "government" is run by people with as much credibility as Nigerian e-mail scanners.
Think about that. Our national security is tied to Pakistanis not turning a blind eye to people who would do us harm.

Obama Administration Sucks Terrorist Ass in Return For Pakistani Help
You know I don't really get why the Haqqani network would not be covered by previous UN and US declarations of the Taliban as foreign terrorist organization?
But then again the Obama administration has not really enforced the designations against the Taliban, even going so far as to approve a Taliban embassy in Qatar.
And last September, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said U.S. officials were "in the final formal review" for designating the entire Haqqani network as a terrorist organization. So what is taking so long?But Pakistan is a state sponsor of terrorism, both domestically and outside Pakistan. Has been for many years. Islamists everywhere cite Pakistian's nuclear arms as a critical deterrent in providing a base of operations for the Islamization of THE WORLD!
In a word: Pakistan.
"If you designate the Haqqani network an FTO, then there would be significant pressure placed on the United States and the international community to designate Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism," Rick "Ozzie" Nelson of the Center for Strategic and International Studies told Security Clearance. "It would be hard to avoid going down that road."
I'd rather drive half the army across Russia and Europe than see America suck off Pakistan for a route to the sea. But Obama seems OK with it.
What a effing pussy or an Islamist... you decide.

Pakistan: A Man Burned a Koran, Mob Burns Man To Death
A Pakistani mob has taken a man accused of blasphemy from a police station and burnt him to death, police say.The police said they were "outnumbered" by the mob. Also, they said the "unknown" man was mentally unstable.
The man was being held for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran in public. The incident took place on the outskirts of Bahawalpur, in Punjab province.
Witnesses said hundreds of people looked on as he screamed for help.
"We were totally outnumbered. There were too many of them and they were hysterical. Eventually, they succeeded in taking him away," said one.No arrests have been made, yet.
The man was reportedly beaten and dragged to the spot where he is said to have desecrated the Koran.
The mob then poured petrol on him and set him on fire, according to witnesses.
Apologize for what?!?

Pakistani Extorts Apology from Obama Administration
Pakistan agreed Tuesday to reopen North Atlantic Treaty Organization supply routes to Afghanistan after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologized for the deaths of two dozen Pakistani troops in a November border clash, apparently ending a seven-month standoff that complicated U.S. war aims.Well f*ck me a running.
The U.S. apology was an about-face for the Obama administration, which had refused to say it was sorry for the Nov. 26 incident along the Afghanistan border.
"We are sorry for the losses suffered by the Pakistani military," Mrs. Clinton told Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, according to a statement issued by the State Department. "We are committed to working closely with Pakistan and Afghanistan to prevent this from ever happening again."
Official Jawa Report editorial position on the matter is as follows.
Dear Pakistan, Suck it!
You can quote us on that.

Pakistan Sentences Man Who Located bin-Laden to 30 Years in Prison
A Pakistani doctor accused of helping the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison, television channels and a local government official said.Note to WSJ. If you want a link, you'll have to kill the paywall.
The official said Shakil Afridi was charged with treason for running a fake vaccination campaign that helped the American intelligence agency track bin Laden in a Pakistani town, where he was killed in a US special forces raid.
Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab, reporting from Islamabad, said that Afridi was very well known as a doctor in the Khyber area.
"He was picked up about two weeks after the bin Laden operation on suspicion of assisting Americans," he said.
In addition to his jail sentence, he was fined 320,000 rupees ($3,500). The doctor had worked for years as a surgeon in lawless Khyber, part of the Taliban and al-Qaeda infested tribal belt.

New al Qaeda Chief Also Leader of Pakistani Taliban
Al Qaeda has named a new chief of Pakistani operations. They have to do this quite a bit given that each new chief is killed in a drone strike:
Al-Qaeda has named Farman Ali Shinwari, a resident of the restive Khyber tribal region and whose brothers have been associated with terrorism in Kashmir, as its new chief in Pakistan.But the real news here is buried in the story. You know how we are always being told by the wishful-thinkers on the Left that al Qaeda and the Taliban aren't the same thing? Well, read on and prepared to have your hopes for a "diplomatic solution" dashed:
He also served as the head of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and is currently said to be leading a faction of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan in Waziristan.The family that jihads together, or something.
Hazrat Ali alias Abu Mas’ab, another of Shinwari’s brothers, heads a Taliban faction called the Abdullah Azam Brigade.
Shinwari’s other brothers, Rehmat Nabi, Matiullah and Raziullah, have all fought in Kashmir with the Harkat-ul-Ansar. They later joined the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.
Oh, and for those of you who pin your hopes for defeating terror on "education" take note of this distressing factoid: He has a Master's Degree in International Relations.

Report: US in Proxy War with Pakistan
Also, US on Verge of Finding Zawahiri
Bruce Riedel, an erstwhile Central Intelligence Agency analyst and senior National Security Council official in the Clinton administration .... [says] "The United States and Pakistan effectively are fighting a proxy war in Afghanistan," he said, and noted that "it is the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) that makes it possible for the Afghan Taliban to function as it functions today."It's one of those things, though, that you wonder if saying this kind of thing out loud is useful -- because it's the truth -- or counterproductive, because there are actually some parts of the Pakistani military and ISI who are on our side?
Riedel said, "If there was no ISI support, there would still be an Afghan Taliban, but not at the level of capability that they have today."
Which brings us to the real problem: the Pakistani state itself.
The problem with Pakistan is not the number of bad apples spoiling the barrel, it's that the barrel itself was ill conceived in the first place. The country was founded on the notion that Muslims need their own country. A theory that "Indians" are different from "Pakistanis".
It substitutes religion for ethnicity or nationality. Muslims cannot be ruled by non-Muslims. How do you fight off extremism when the very foundational theory of your state is Islamic supremacism?
The only really piece of good news here is some speculation that we have a bead on Zawahiri:
Riedel also said he believed that Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri is somewhere in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, "relatively close to Rawalpindi," and that the Central Investigation Agency would find him "sometime in the foreseeable future. They are on the track. They have demonstrated, in finding Osama bin Laden, that they've cracked the code to penetrating how the Al Qaeda communicates, and they will find Ayman al-Zawahiri."I don't know how reliable that last part is, but if it's true then let's git-r-done and kill the SOB already.

Totally Unknown Terrorist Kill Four in Pakistan
Yawn.... I'm going out a limb here, tomorrow one of the half a million Bilal Ahmads in Pakistan will die or be arrested in Kashmir.
Back in the day I set a Google alert for a person named Bilal Ahmad. Over the years the one thing I learned from that is its very bad luck to be named Bilal Ahmad from Pakistan. Very bad luck indeed.
