Haqqani Terrorist Group ‘Veritable Arm’ of Pakistan Intelligence

The Haqqani terrorist network, which the U.S. blames for attacks on Americans and others in Afghanistan, acts as a “veritable arm” of Pakistan’s intelligence service, the U.S.’s top uniformed official said today.

Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee today that Haqqani network operatives, with support from Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency, “planned and conducted” the Sept. 14 assault on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.
