CIA Pulls Its Chief From Pakistan
Radio Free Europe - Radio Liberty ^ | December 18, 2010 | Claire Bigg

Posted on 12/18/2010 4:05:59 AM PST by deks

The CIA has recalled it top officer from Pakistan after his cover was blown and his life threatened.

The alleged name of the CIA's station chief in Islamabad was revealed by a Pakistani man, Kareem Khan, who has threatened to sue the intelligence agency over the death of his son and brother in a U.S. missile strike.

Khan and his lawyers told a news conference in November that they would seek a $500 million payment for his family members' deaths and warned they may sue CIA director Leon Panetta, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and the man they identified as a CIA officer.

Last week, Khan formally asked the Pakistani police to investigate the CIA station chief's responsibility in the deaths.

"I named the CIA's station head in Islamabad in case he was responsible for the killing of my brother and my son," Khan told RFE/RL. "If I get proof of the involvement of the Pakistani government and officials in the drone strikes, then I will definitely also file a case against them."

Supporters of Khan have staged protests in Islamabad in which they demanded the CIA officer leave the country and brandished placards bearing his name as listed in the lawsuit.

Khan, who claims to be a journalist, has refused to clarify how he obtained the name of the officer.

Pakistan's top spy agency rejected speculation that it had leaked the information in retaliation for a U.S. lawsuit accusing the head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence of being linked to the deadly terror attacks on the Indian city of Mumbai in 2008.

It has been a record year for drone strikes in Pakistan, with 113 so far, up from 53 last year and 34 in 2008, according to the New America Foundation. On Friday, U.S. missiles struck compounds in Pakistan’s Khyber district, killing 54 alleged militants, according to news reports citing Pakistani officials.

I have met, know and have worked with pakistanis... and IMHO... every one of them is a latent radical... they all blame America for every ill and every single one of them has told me that we deserved 9/11. They don't like me because I gave them better than they gave me. If it were up to me... I would outlaw islam and deport every last evil muzzie from this land.

Kareem Khan is suing the U.S. for 500 million?
His whole family isn’t worth 500 pennies.

The new agreement with Muslim countries: they build an iron curtain - keep their people in - they don't come here - we don't go there.

A divided world - Muslim and non-Muslim... they stone women and bugger little boys - we outlaw such activities. They murder cartoonists - we laugh at their thin skinned freakishness.

After a few hundred years we open the gates, pull aside the curtain and see if knowing them is worth another try.

Have a cup of coffee on me. It was sarcasm.

How can you tell if it's about the money? It's when they say it's not about the money.

Jeez, this isn't hard. As for a "meeting" with them at a certain time and place, and cue the drone.

Islam is a vile, barbaric, gutter religion for a vile, barbaric, gutter people. It should be wiped off the face of the earth, starting in America.

When they're not blaming America, they're blaming India.

It's not a society that encourages clear thinking and self-reliance.
