Pakistan discloses CIA Station Chief's identity


publicintelligence.net


ISI Director General Lt-Gen Ahmad Shuja Pasha held a meeting with CIA station chief Mark Carlton in Islamabad on Friday, a private TV channel reported. According to sources, the ISI DG in meeting with the CIA station chief protested over not taking Pakistan into confidence on May 2 raid in Abbottabad. The intelligence officials have given a clear message to Washington that the United States will be responsible for consequences in case of repeat of such operation within Pakistani territory, sources added.

Upset over the lack of being involved in the Bin Laden raid, Pakistan officials named the CIA station chief essentially ending his career. This in my opinion is being done with the cooperation of the US government providing Pakistan the chance to save some face and out the CIA's primary personnel in the region. If not the case then Pakistan just made a huge error in judgement by doing this. the reprecussions will for sure not be in Pakistan's favor.


Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani defended his country in an address Monday, suggesting that while Pakistan is relieved bin Laden is dead, the U.S. had better not try another raid like that without first informing the government in Islamabad.

He said his country would not relent in rooting out terrorists, but warned any "overt or covert" attack against its assets would be met with a "matching response."

This thread is VERY interesting, because Pakistan's ISI and America's CIA have been working together for a very long time. Now, with this OBL dilemma, both agencies are starting to sabotage each other and deep-dark secrets might be made public (drug smuggeling, or 9/11).

Keep your ears open... This could get ugly.

Pakistani PM: Bin Laden death was 'justice done'
By MUNIR AHMED, Associated Press


news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110509/ap_on_re_as/as_pakistan_bin_laden


(...)

The Associated Press has learned that the name being reported is incorrect. Still, the publication of any alleged identity of the U.S. spy agency's top official in this country could be pushback from Pakistan's powerful military and Inter-Services Intelligence agency in retaliation for the American raid.

On Friday, the private TV channel ARY broadcast what it said was the current CIA station chief's name. The Nation, a right-wing newspaper, picked up the story Saturday.

ARY's news director, Mazhar Abbas, said the television station's reporter gleaned the name from a source. He defended the broadcast, saying it was "based on fact" and rejected suggestions the name was leaked to the television channel by an official with a motive.

The AP is not publishing the station chief's name because he is undercover and his identity is classified.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of discussing CIA personnel issues, told the AP that there are no plans to remove the station chief from Pakistan.

A spokesman for Pakistani intelligence declined to comment.

Asad Munir, a former intelligence chief with responsibility for Pakistan's militant-populated tribal areas, said very few people know the name of the CIA station chief in Islamabad. But he said that releasing it would not necessarily jeopardize the American's safety.

"Normally people in intelligence have cover names," Munir said. "Only if there is a photograph to identify him could it put his life in danger."

Nah he'd give away his position. They'd spot him from a mile away.

I'm wondering what you base that last statement on?

Very good point. That would have to get the nod from editorial before it got published so it's not accidental. Might want to hold off the drones for a while !!

This means Pakistan, a country that is half ally/ half enemy, has secrets they can use to blackmail the U.S. Can we say no more foreign entanglements?

Wasn't it Pakistan who received a transfer of $100,000 dollars from a bank in Florida, and then quickly transfered that money to Mohammed Atta who turned out to the head hyjacker on 9/11?


Pakistan is a common conduit for money going in and out of Afghanistan, home to Islamic militant Osama bin Laden, the leading suspect in the attacks. But at this point it's not known exactly where the funds may have originated.
Sources said the wire transfers from Pakistan were sent to Atta through two banks in Florida. Then, Atta allegedly would obtain money orders -- a few thousand dollars at a time -- to distribute to others involved in the plot in the months before the hijackings.

archives.cnn.com...

Wouldn't be a surprise if ISI went public with the information that could identify who sent the transfers?!?! Oh gee-golly... Sometimes these Intel agencies are there own worst enemies.. lol

They are both attempting to discredit the other, and the US/CIA are probably doing whatever they can to discredit ISI before ISI drops the huge information bomb.

Bingo, we have a winner.


But hey, they got OBL, and the US is now floating accusations that the Pakistani "government" was involved, and/or complicit in supporting him, and hiding him.

Something has to blow here, better get er done before the Iranians play their trump card.
