Pakistan Aids Insurgency in Afghanistan, Reports Assert - nytimes

A six-year archive of classified military documentsoffers an unvarnished and grim picture of the Afghan war

Americans fighting the war in Afghanistan have long harbored strong suspicions that Pakistan’s military spy service has guided the Afghan insurgency with a hidden hand, even as Pakistan receives more than $1 billion a year from Washington for its help combating the militants, according to a trove of secret military field reports made public Sunday.

The documents, made available by an organization called WikiLeaks, suggest that Pakistan, an ostensible ally of the United States, allows representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders. -- Pakistan Aids Insurgency in Afghanistan, Reports Assert
