ISI inimical to Pakistan, US interests

world Updated: Jul 10, 2011 00:06 IST

Charging ISI with being inimical to the interests of the US and Pakistan, a leading daily in Kathmandu has asked Washington to seek the removal of its chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha and slap sanctions against its officials involved in terror activities.

“The United States needs to use its influence to hasten Pasha’s departure,” The New York Times said in an editorial, as American officials blamed the military-run Pakistani intelligence agency for the killing of investigative journalist Syed Saleem Shahzad.

“It (the US) should tell Pakistan’s security leadership that if Washington identifies anyone in ISI or the army as abetting terrorists, those individuals will face sanctions like travel bans or other measures.” The influential US daily added that the “ISI has become inimical to Pakistani and American interests.”

The Times in a lead story early this week had said that the Obama administration now has evidence implicating the ISI in this brutal killing.
