‘Intelligence fusion’ cells, some that help us in Afghanistan, have been ordered shut down by Pakistan, with a demand that U.S. reduce troops in that country as well. From the LA Times:
In a clear sign of Pakistan’s deepening mistrust of the United States, Islamabad has told the Obama administration to reduce the number of U.S. troops in the country and has moved to close three military intelligence liaison centers, setting back American efforts to eliminate insurgent sanctuaries in largely lawless areas bordering Afghanistan, U.S. officials said.
The liaison centers, also known as intelligence fusion cells, in Quetta and Peshawar are the main conduits for the United States to share satellite imagery, target data and other intelligence with Pakistani ground forces conducting operations against militants, including Taliban fighters who slip into Afghanistan to attack U.S. and allied forces.
Raymond Davis, the CIA contractor who was only freed through “blood money,” had the Pakistanis upset anyone, but Seal Team 6 invading Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden has really set things off.
