Document leak: Afghanistan questions US' 'contradictory' silence over Pak role

By Abdul Nisar

Kabul, July 27 (ANI): Afghanistan on Tuesday charged the United States with pursuing a contradictory policy with regard to the Afghan war.

Kabul said Washington has been ignoring Islamabad's role in the insurgency, following the leak of US military documents on the website WikiLeaks.org.

The classified documents show current and former members of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) actively collaborating with the Taliban in plotting attacks in Afghanistan.

According to the Dawn, Afghanistan's National Security Council said in a statement: "With regret ... our allies (read the US) did not show necessary attention about the external support for the international terrorists ... for the regional stability and global security."

The National Security Council, however, did not name Pakistan, but said the use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy was a dangerous gamble and had to be stopped.

"Having a contradictory and vague policy against the forces who use terrorism as a tool for interference and sabotage against others, have had devastating results," it said.

The White House has condemned the disclosures, saying it could threaten national security.

Pakistan said leaking unprocessed reports from the battlefield was irresponsible.

The documents numbering about 91,000 also said that coalition troops had killed hundreds of Afghan civilians in unreported incidents. (ANI)
