Kayani takes McChrystal to task: Why ISAF abandoned from border posts

By: RupeeNews | Moin Ansari

Bang in the middle of the operation in South Waziristan, it was expected that Indian and Afghan and other terrorists would run to Afghanistan. In a tightly coordinated operation, it was imperative that the US continued to seal the Afghan border so that the terrorists would be trapped in South Waziristain. However when the Pakistani Army was conducting its operation the ISAF forces abandoned their positions which allowed some of the terrorists to escape into safe havens in Afghanistan (where the Taliban control 80% of the territory).

Central Asia Tajikistan Pakistan: RAW trail of terror from Tajik bases to Indian Consulates in Afghanistan to targets in Pakistan. “They (the Indians) have to justify their interest. They do not share a border with Afghanistan, whereas we do. So the level of engagement has to be commensurate with that,” Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said in an extensive interview with The Los Angeles Times, when asked about India’s building up its commercial and political presence in Afghanistan.

A source privy to the meeting said the two officials exchanged views on the law and order situation in Afghanistan and the recent military offensive in South Waziristan. General Kayani briefed McChrystal on the operation. According to an Inter-Services Public Relations statement, the US general remained with General Kayani for some time and discussed matters of mutual interest.

Separately, Britain’s Chief of General Staff David Richard visited Gen Kayani at the military’s General Headquarters in Rawalpindi and discussed professional, bilateral and regional issues. General Richard also laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada. A Pakistan Army contingent presented a guard of honour.
