Blackwater presence in Pakistan
22 December, 2009
With the very first day, Pakistan Intelligence, Pakistani media and some well known personalities of Pakistan have been asserted that Blackwater was operating in Pakistan. But the officials of Pakistan Govt. were used to deny all these reports.
On December 14, 2009, despite repeated denials, the CIA has confirmed that US security contractor Xe Services, formerly known as Blackwater, has been operating in Pakistan and CIA spokesman George Little said that agency Director Leon Panetta has now terminated a contract with Xe services that allowed the company’s employees to load bombs on CIA drones at secret airfields in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
This latest hype throws up a few questions that beg answers:
Do you think, Blackwater is operating in Pakistan just because of hidden deal between US and Pakistan’s govt.?
Why CIA has terminated its contract with Blackwater? What will be the reason?
Mr. Rehman Malik had said if Blackwater is operating in Pakistan, he would resign. Should he put his resignation?
What are the main reasons for Blackwater`s presence in Pakistan?
