Afghan authorities accuse Pakistan of killing CIA operatives

Afghan spy officials say the suicide bombing that killed seven CIA agents in Afghanistan just over a week ago may be linked to Pakistan.

The attack was carried out by a Jordanian double agent who had strong ties with Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Investigative journalist Gerald Posner claims that Afghanistan officials have no doubts about the link.

“I had senior [Afghanistan] official say that they were familiar with an American analysis of the bomb,” Posner told RT. “They did a chemical signature after the bombing, they tied it to elements used by ISI, Pakistan’s version of the CIA, and that’s the signature that ties to the Pakistani intelligence. Now the question that confronts the United States is: What do they do with this information, or at least with Afghanistan pointing the finger at Pakistan, one of the US’s allies in the region?”
