ISI faction sending Taliban to attack US troops: Mullen


Recently retired US Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Admiral Mike Mullen, whose remarks on the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)’s links to the Haqqani network have kicked up a storm in Pakistan, said on Sunday that a faction within the ISI was sending Taliban across the border into Afghanistan to attack American troops. “In Haqqani is the most virulent insurgent group, terrorist group in Pakistan and a great supporter of al Qaeda. We’re losing Afghan civilians, Afghan soldiers, and we’re losing American soldiers because of the Haqqani network,” Mullen told CNN in an interview.
