---------------------------------- WASHINGTON, AUG 21: Osman bin Laden, the Saudi millionaire-turned-renegade charged with international terrorism, bears a striking similarity to the late Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. The resemblance is more than just facial. Like Bhindranwale, bin Laden was created by the very forces which are now seeking to destroy him. Experts are almost unanimous in saying that bin Laden is a creature of a US foreign policy which recklessly fed and nurtured him and his Islamic warriors with million of dollars worth of money and arms to fight the Soviet occupation in Afghanistan. The money was funnelled largely through PAKISTAN's maverick Inter-Services Intelligence. Even at that time, bin Laden and his holy warriors had made it clear that the US was as much anathema to them as the communists. The Agency is now trying to destroy the same camps it helped set up, Fisk, a British writer who covered the region and who met bin Laden at his camp recently said on Friday in an interview on National Public Radio. He said bin Laden did not appear to be such a fearsome international terrorist that the US was making him out to be.
On the contrary, he was isolated, lonely, virtually unlistened to, and was constantly trying to know what was happening in other parts of the world. US officials have made bin Laden out to be a terrorist mastermind operating out of a high-tech cave filled with satellite phones and other gizmos overseeing a worldwide network of extremist organisations. The operation was a complete disaster. Mr. Bhutto promoted General Zia-Ul-Haq in part because the Director of ISI, General Gulam Jilani Khan, was actively promoting him. General Zia, in return, retained General Jilani as head of ISI after his scheduled retirement. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto established the Federal Security Force and gave it wide-ranging powers to counter the influence of ISI, but the force was abolished when the military regime of Zia ul-Haq seized power in 1977. When the regime was unpopular with the military and the president (as was Benazir Bhutto's first government), the agency helped topple it by working with opposition political parties. The ISI became much more effective under the leadership of Hameed Gul. The 1990 elections are widely believed to be rigged. The Islami Jamhoori Ittehad [IJI] party was a conglomerate formed of nine mainly rightist parties by the ISI under Lt General Hameed Gul to ensure the defeat of Bhutto's PAKISTAN People's Party (PPP) in the polls. Gul denies this, claiming that the ISI's political cell created by Z.A. Bhutto only 'monitored' the elections. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan made PAKISTAN a country of paramount geostrategic importance. In a matter of days, the United States declared PAKISTAN a "frontline state" against Soviet aggression and offered to reopen aid and military assistance deliveries. For the remainder of Zia's tenure, the United States generally ignored PAKISTAN's developing nuclear programme. PAKISTAN's top national security agency, the Army's Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, monitored the activities of and provided advice and support to the mujahidin, and commandos from the Army's Special Services Group helped guide the operations inside Afghanistan.
The ISI trained about 83,000 Afghan Mujahideen between 1983 to 1997 and dispatched them to Afghanistan. PAKISTAN paid a price for its activities. Afghan and Soviet forces conducted raids against mujahidin bases inside PAKISTAN, and a campaign of terror bombings and sabotage in PAKISTAN's cities, guided by Afghan intelligence agents, caused hundreds of casualties. In 1987 some 90 percent of the 777 terrorist incidents recorded worldwide took place in PAKISTAN. The ISI continues to actively participate in Afghan Civil War, supporting the Talibaan in their fight against the Rabbani government. ISI is currently engaged in covertly supporting the Kashmiri Mujahideen in their fight against the Indian authorities in Kashmir. Reportedly "Operation Tupac" is the designation of the three part action plan for the liberation of Kashmir, initiated by President Zia Ul Haq in 1988 after the failure of "Operation Gibraltar." The designation is derived from Tupac Amru, the 18th century prince who led the war of liberation in Uruguay against the Spanish rule. According to a report compiled by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) of India in 1995, ISI spent about Rs 2.4 crore per month to sponsor its activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Although all groups reportedly receive arms and training from PAKISTAN, the pro-PAKISTANi groups are reputed to be favored by the Directorate of Inter-Services Intelligence. As of May 1996, at least six major militant organizations, and several smaller ones, operate in Kashmir. Their forces are variously estimated at between 5,000 and 10,000 armed men. They are roughly divided between those who support independence and those who support accession to PAKISTAN. The oldest and most widely known militant organisation, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), has spearheaded the movement for an independent Kashmir. Its student wing is the Jammu and Kashmir Students Liberation Front (JKSLF). A large number of other militant organizations have emerged since 1989, some of which also support independence, others of which support Kashmir's accession to PAKISTAN. The most powerful of the pro-PAKISTANi groups is the Hezb-ul-Mujahedin. The other major groups are Harakat-ul Ansar, a group which reportedly has a large number of non-Kashmiris in it, Al Umar, Al Barq, Muslim Janbaz Force and Lashkar-e Toiba, which is also made up largely of fighters from Afghanistan and PAKISTAN. According to press reports, several hundred fighters from Afghanistan and other Muslim countries have also joined some of the militant groups or have formed their own. The Harakat ul-Ansar group, a powerful militant organisation which first emerged in 1993, is said to be made up largely of non-Kashmiris. ISI is reported to operate training camps near the border of Bangladesh where members of separatist groups of the northeastern states, known as the "United Liberation Front Of Seven Sisters" [ULFOSS] are trained with military equipment and terrorist activities. These groups include the National Security Council of Nagaland [NSCN], People's Liberation Army [PLA], United Liberation Front of Assam [ULFA], and North East Students Organisation [NESO]. ISI is said to have intensified its activities in the southern Indian States of Hyderabad, Bangalore, Cochin, Kojhikode, Bhatkal, and Gulbarga. In Andhra Pradesh the Ittehadul Musalmeen and the Hijbul Mujahideen are claimed to be involved in subversive activities promoted by ISI. And Koyalapattinam, a village in Tamil Nadu, is said to be the common center of operations of ISI and the Liberation Tigers.

GENERAL ALMOST SENT PAKISTAN INTO NUCLEAR WAR WHILE PRIME MINISTER SHARIF WAS DEALING WITH THE USA--GENERAL GOES TO CHINA FOR INSTRUCTIONS THE SAME DAY November 29 1999 SOUTH ASIA Kashmir 'nearly led to nuclear clash' BY MEVANS, DEFENCE EDITOR PAKISTAN and India came "very close" to a nuclear exchange over Kashmir in the summer when border clashes erupted after Islamic militants infiltrated the Indian-controlled section of the mountain province, Peter Hain, the Foreign Office Minister, revealed yesterday. Kashmir, which had been the cause of two past conventional wars between India and PAKISTAN, remained a "frightening flashpoint", Mr Hain said. "We know the two countries came very close to a nuclear exchange over it," he said in an interview with The Times. The minister was not prepared to give any more details. However, there is likely to have been satellite photographic evidence that one side or both sides were preparing weapon systems known to be nuclear-capable. Both countries were proven nuclear powers after successful atomic tests in 1998, and by the time of the new clash over Kashmir, India and PAKISTAN had each developed a small number of nuclear warheads. While Britain, the US and other countries urged a rapid end to the confrontation for fear that it might turn nuclear, India and PAKISTAN launched ferocious border artillery strikes. India also launched airstrikes. The near-nuclear exchange has remained a key issue for the Foreign Office in its deliberations over how to deal with the military regime in PAKISTAN because of evidence that General Pervaiz Musharraf, who seized power in October, was personally involved in the decision to send Islamic "mercenaries" to occupy the Kargil district of Kashmir in May last year. General Musharraf is known to have been angry with Nawaz Sharif, the then PAKISTANi Prime Minister, after he ordered the withdrawal of the inflitrators from Kashmir. Despite the continuing caution in London over General Musharraf's motives for seizing power, there are now new efforts under way to help the military regime to adopt constitutional systems that will eventually lead to free elections US TESTIFIED N CONGRESS THAT PAKISTAN BEHIND TERRORISM US says PAKISTAN training militants By Shaheen Sehbai WASHINGTON, Nov 3: A senior US official responsible for counter-terrorism on Tuesday directly accused PAKISTAN of supporting training of militant groups in Afghanistan as well as providing "material support" to some of the Kashmiri militants. "There are numerous Kashmiri separatist groups and sectarian groups involved in terrorism which use PAKISTAN as a base...We have repeatedly asked Islamabad to end support of terrorist training in Afghanistan," Michael Sheehan, State Department's coordinator for counter-terrorism, told a Senate Foreign Relations sub-committee. The sub-committee hearing was called and presided over by Senator Sam Brownback and the list of experts who testified included a former Agency officer in PAKISTAN Bearden, president of Stimson Centre Krepon, John Hopkins University Central Asia Institute chairman Starr and a PAKISTANi- American businessman and columnist Ijaz. Mr Sheehan recently visited India to coordinate US-Indian responses to terrorist threats but when asked whether he would also visit PAKISTAN soon, he said: "Hopefully." "PAKISTAN has frequently acknowledged what it calls moral and diplomatic support for militants in Kashmir who employ violence and terrorism against Indian interests. We have continuing reports of PAKISTANi material support for some of these militants," Mr Sheehan said. He named several PAKISTAN-based militant Islamic groups including Lashkar Taiba, Harkatul Jehad Islami and Hizbul Mujahideen, which, he said, "operate freely in PAKISTAN and support terrorist attacks in Kashmir." Asked by Indian and PAKISTANi journalists after his hearing whether he found any change in the policy after the overthrow of the Nawaz government, Mr Sheehan said: "We are still waiting for their responses and it is too early to judge whether there is any change." When a correspondent pointed out whether it was "business as usual" with the military government, he crisply said "no" but added: "We hope to work with them on all these issues."
S E C T I O N 10.0 UNITED NATIONS, Oct 22: The UN Security Council on Friday condemned Taliban rulers for undermining efforts to end the civil war, but decided against explicitly criticizing PAKISTAN. In a statement by its president, Russian ambassador Sergei Lavrov, the United Nations Council said the Taliban had "a primary responsibility" for the continued fighting in Afghanistan. ...An earlier draft of Lavrov's statement said that these schools were "within PAKISTAN". GENERAL OCCUPIES THE POSITION WHICH IS THE FUNNEL TO Osman THROUGHOUT THE Bush ADMINISTRATION, US FUNDS WERE SECRETLY GIVEN TO Osman BIN LADEN TO ARM AND ORGANIZE THE MUJAHADDIN IN AFGHANISTAN. THE US EMBASSY BEING CLOSED IN AFGHANISTAN, ALL OF THE MONIES WERE LAUNDERED BY THE Agency AND TRANSFERRED IN A SURREPTITIOUS FASHION THROUGH THE OLD-BOY SPY NETWORK--IN THIS CASE, THE PAKISTANI INTELLIGENCE SERVICE--WHICH IS THE ARMY INTELLIGENCE. THE ARMY INTELLIGENCE IS DIRECTLY COMMANDED BY THE PAKISTANI CHIEF OF STAFF. GENERAL PERVAIZ MUSHARRAF IS THE PAKISTANI CHIEF OF STAFF. THE CONFLICT WITH INDIA IS ONE OF GENERAL MUSHARRAF'S DESIGN, AND GENERAL IS TAKING HIS ORDERS BY COMMAND OF THE CHINESE TOP BRASS IN PEKING. WHEN GENERAL OUSTED PRIME MINISTER SHARIF IN OCTOBER, 1999, PAKISTAN WAS WITHIN DAYS OF SIGNING THE COMPREHENSIVE TEST BAN TREATY. SINCE HIS ASSUMING CONTROL OF PAKISTAN, MUSHARRAF HAS STATED THAT PAKISTAN WILL NOT NOW SIGN THE CTBT, AND HE HAS BROKEN OFF ALL NEGOTIATIONS WITH INDIA. MEANWHILE, HE HAS MET, ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY, WITH AFGHANISTAN AND ITS FEW ALLIES IN THE WORLD. DESPITE HIS HEAVY SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS WITH THE ALLIES OF TERRORIST AFGHANISTAN, MUSHARRAF HAS NOT SPENT A SINGLE DAY IN THE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, DOING THE REGULAR DAY-TO-DAY BUSINESS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN. ISLAMABAD, Jan 4: Chief Executive General Pervez Musharraf has said that PAKISTAN will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if its security is threatened. To put it simply, Musharraf, who was developed by the agency similary to the way it groomed the monster we now know as Osman bin Laden (aka Tim Osman).
