ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's government plans to seize control of charities and financial assets linked to Islamist leader Hafiz Saeed, who Washington has designated a terrorist, according to officials and documents reviewed by Reuters.

Pakistan's civilian government detailed its plans in a secret order to various provincial and federal government departments on Dec. 19, three officials who attended one of several high-level meeting discussing the crackdown told Reuters.

In a written reply to Reuters, he also said Pakistan wasn't taking action under U.S. pressure. "We're not pleasing anyone. We're working as a responsible nation to fulfil our obligations to our people and international community.".



I have to think each day he's more and more blown away by how rapidly President Trump is undoing everything he was about. I really hope President Trump's unseals Barry's records.

obamacare- neutered and soon to die
ISIS all but dead
Dakota Access Pipeline- pumping oil
illegal mexicans- numbers falling
refugee admissions- clamped down to a trickle
economy booming, jobs up, stock market in the stratosphere
everything obama took eight years to do to this country undone in less than a year

Where’s the evidence that this has anything to do with Trump?

From your source...


Asked about a crackdown on JuD and FIF, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who co-chaired one of the meetings on the plan, responded only generally, saying he has ordered authorities "to choke the fundraising of all proscribed outfits in Pakistan". In a written reply to Reuters, he also said Pakistan wasn't taking action under U.S. pressure. "We're not pleasing anyone. We're working as a responsible nation to fulfil our obligations to our people and international community."

What does it have to do with Trump? This is the Pakistan government seizing funds held by an Islamist, on their own, with no help from any outside source.

What does it have to do with Obama? Where is the evidence the JuD and FIF or Lashkar-e-Taiba have anything to do with Obama?

What is the point of using a childish racist insult to describe President Obama as 'Obongo'?

1. Pakistan lets him walk free couple months ago.
2. Trump admin defunds Pakistan because they won't cooperate with the president’s strategy in Afghanistan.
3. Pakistan decides it better get tough on those that support terrorism and quit pissing Trump off


The White House Saturday slammed Pakistan’s release of a U.S.-wanted militant, calling it a “step in the wrong direction” that will damage America’s relations with Pakistan.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the U.S. “strongly condemns” the release of Hafiz Saeed from house arrest, and called for his “immediate re-arrest and prosecution.”

“Saeed’s release, after Pakistan’s failure to prosecute or charge him, sends a deeply troubling message about Pakistan’s commitment to combatting international terrorism and belies Pakistani claims that it will not provide sanctuary for terrorists on its soil,” she said. “If Pakistan does not take action to lawfully detain Saeed and charge him for his crimes, its inaction will have repercussions for bilateral relations and for Pakistan’s global reputation. “

Saeed is the leader of the extremist group Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, which allegedly was responsible for an attack in Mumbai, India, that killed 168 people in 2008, including six Americans. The Justice Department has designated him as a terrorist, and the U.S. has offered a $10 million reward since 2012 for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

He was released Friday after a three-judge panel in Pakistan ended his detention in the eastern city of Lahore, a move that sparked outrage in India and in the U.S.

US helicopters have evacuated Daesh leaders from several areas across the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor to the country's northeast, Syria's SANA news agency has reported, citing eyewitnesses.

SANA reported that according to residents, the jihadists were evacuated Wednesday and flown to safety in al-Hasakah province, much of which is presently under the control of Kurdish and US forces.

Earlier photographic evidence showed ISIS using US-made TOW-guided anti-tank missiles against government forces.

Their tanks, artillery, mortars and other heavy weapons come from foreign suppliers - notably from America, other NATO countries and Israel.

Without their material support, ISIS and other terrorist groups couldn’t exist.


Nothing to see here just more McCain nice moderates ? A program instigated by a prior administration and I doubt Trump is aware of what the game in Syria is actually being played.. He listens to his military advisors and I doubt they are telling him we are evacuating and arming a new group to overthrow Assad.. I doubt he wants to be JFKed either..

Mattis: US will send more diplomats, contractors to Syria
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says he is expecting to see a larger US civilian presence in Syria, where there are already 2,000 American troops without the authorization of the Syrian government.

Mattis said Friday that the US would deploy more contractors and diplomats to the war-torn country, with which Washington has suspended diplomatic relations.

"What we will be doing is shifting from what I would call an offensive, shifting from an offensive terrain-seizing approach to a stabilizing... you'll see more US diplomats on the ground," Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon.


What a load of B.S. The USA has no right to be there in the first place..

Ah right, so Pakistan let him walk free 3 months ago during the Trump administration..

They decide to defund Pakistan and that’s when they jump into action. Just a thought but it reminds me extortion or blackmail on Pakistan’s part..

Why wouldn’t they say so?

Fact is, there is no indication from the article in the OP that Trump influenced this, in fact it says the opposite.

If true or not, who knows, but why make the claim with no supporting evidence??

Amazing indeed!

I have a question out of curiosity. Judging by your recent signup and the style and form you churn out one "pro Trump" thread after the other, are you by any chance a paid shill or troll ??

Don't take me wrong, but his is a serious question.

I dont get you man.

It would be practically admitting publicly that you are under control by another state. As much as that is true or not...public appearances are everything. No one with a sane mind, currently residing in Pakistan govt would admit to it.
