The reality? They aren't that committed.
A top Central Intelligence Agency official traveled secretly to Islamabad this month to confront Pakistan’s most senior officials with new information about ties between the country’s powerful spy service and militants operating in Pakistan’s tribal areas, according to American military and intelligence officials.Maybe we need to give them more jets. Same story, we say we want them to do more, they say they are committed, they do nothing and possibly hinder our efforts in the border region, we say we understand their difficulties, we send money, we're worse off, repeat. Expect a few meaningless raids on border groups, no arrests, more statements about 'commitment', requests for cash in non-sequential bills, and further reports that the situation in Afghanistan is getting worse.
The C.I.A. emissary presented evidence showing that members of the spy service had deepened their ties with some militant groups that were responsible for a surge of violence in Afghanistan, possibly including the suicide bombing this month of the Indian Embassy in Kabul, the officials said.
The C.I.A. assessment specifically points to links between members of the spy service, the Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI, and the militant network led by Maulavi Jalaluddin Haqqani, which American officials believe maintains close ties to senior figures of Al Qaeda in Pakistan’s tribal areas.
