Pak: PTI claims exposing CIA agent
Islamabad, Nov 28: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI), lead by former cricketer Imran Khan has claimed that it has blown the cover of CIA's senior officer in Pakistan.

In a letter to the police, the party has named a man; it claimed was the head of the CIA in Islamabad. The party demanded that the CIA agent be nominated as one of the people responsible for the Nov 21 drone strike.

The US Embassy however refused to comment on the issue but said that they will look into the matter. If the PTI's claims are indeed true, this will be the second time that anti-drone campaigners have revealed a top US spy in Pakistan.

In 2010, Jonathan Banks another CIA Chief was named in criminal proceedings initiated after a drone strike and was later forced to leave the country.

Khan has always been against the drone strikes in Pakistan and has said that these drone strikes were mostly responsible for the home grown terrorism in Pakistan. The drone strikes have become a matter of debate in the country again since in the past few years the strikes have increased.
