Obama has announced the partition of Pakistan - Webster Tarpley

A former NATO officer claims US Special Forces have conducted secret raids inside Pakistan's border regions. The operations were conducted between 2003 and 2008, but only one was ever made public.

According to reports, troops were looking for high value targets among both the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The one that became widely known in September 2008 was condemned as a provocation by the Pakistani government.

Ethnic groups from Pakistan’s Belugistan province where most of the raids occurred blame the government in Islamabad for allowing these things to happen, said RT LIVE investigative journalist Webster Tarpley.

He pointed out that “President Obama’s West point speech of December 2 is a thinly veiled declaration of war against Pakistan in the sense that it announces the intent of the US to promote the dismemberment, the partition of Pakistan along ethnic lines and in order to do that you have to create trouble on the ground.”

“Ambassador Richard Holbrook, who is the US tsar for the region, was asked ‘Do you have troops in Pakistan?’ and he said ‘The US has intelligence personnel in Pakistan but not troops’. And I would ask – “What about the contractors, Mr Ambassador?” asked Tarpley.

Webster Tarpley disclosed information published in The Nation and Vanity Fair magazines about Blackwater Select and Total Intelligence Solutions having massive snatch and grab and even assassination operations run out of Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, under the command of the US Joint Special Operations Command and CIA.

The Taliban refused to take responsibility for some explosions in public places in Pakistan and blamed the CIA for destabilizing the situation in the country through terror.

“I guess from some points of view the golden age of Blackwater was perhaps not under Bush/ Cheney but it is now under Obama,” Tarpley said, “and they are running wild in ways they trample the sovereignty of Pakistan as a country.”
