Germany, Jul 26: The New York Times said on Sunday, Jul 25, that the Pakistan has been double-crossing the United States by secretly supporting the Taliban while taking massive US aid.

The New York Times reported the 91,000 documents, collected from across the US military in Afghanistan, that showed Pakistan actively collaborating with the Afghan insurgency.

"The documents 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," the Times said.

The documents were also made available to Britain's The Guardian newspaper and German weekly Der Spiegel.

The White House responded with a strong condemnation of the leak, saying it could threaten national security and endanger the lives of Americans and those of its allies.
