Blackwater behind Pakistan bombings: Ex-intel chief

Sat, 12 Dec 2009 presstv.ir


The former head of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, ISI, Asad Durrani said in an interview with Press TV that Blackwater, a notorious US security firm, is carrying out operations in the country.

His comments came after the US Central intelligence Agency (CIA) revealed that Blackwater, which currently works under the name Xe Services, has been involved in drone attacks in Pakistan.

The CIA said the private security company has been loading bombs on US drones that target suspected militants in Pakistan. The attacks, according to Pakistani media, kill civilians as well.

General Durrani, however, said the group may be involved in actions that destabilize the country.

“My assessment is that they [Blackwater agents] — either themselves or most probably through others, through the locals — do carry out some of the explosions,” he said.

“The idea is to carry out such actions, like carrying attacks in the civilian areas to make the others look bad in the eyes of the public.”
