Retired General Mirza Aslam Baig, a former Pakistani military commander revealed that a large CIA network exists in Pakistan and Dr.Abdul Qadir Khan, the famous nuclear scientist faces death threats by American agents based in the country and threatening the country’s self-rule and independence.Foreign powers want division of Pakistan into four parts.Pakistani media recently reported that more than 3,000 CIA agents are actively working in Pakistan and that Raymond Davis the US citizen accused of killing two Pakistanis is one of the important figures of the American intelligence network in Pakistan.Raymond Davis, a CIA contractor served as a director of operations for the CIA.The former Pakistani commander said the accused has a number of secrets and the U.S. wants his early release due the highly classified information he possesses.
There were reports that more than three thousands CIA operators are actively working in different areas of Pakistan.
The scrutiny started after Raymond Davis, a CIA contactor was captured.
Raymond Davis is a former Special Forces soldier and current private security contractor who shot two Pakistani citizens in broad daylight in Lahore on January 27th. The Obama administration has been pressuring Pakistan to release Davis on the pretext that he is a “diplomat.” This bald faced lie has been refuted by both the American and Pakistani media as well as anonymous sources within the Obama administration.
Pakistani missions abroad had issued a large number of visas to the American citizens in the recent months, according to Pakistani sources.
As a sign of a possible fall out, a planned trilateral meeting between Pakistan, Afghanistan and the U.S. was put on hold as the Afghanis and Americans met in Washington without Pakistan.
According to some reliable sources in Islamabad, these were supposed to be very important talks between US, Pakistan and Afghanistan on the region but Pakistan was excluded due to the Raymond Davis affair.
The latest developments could further deepen the already strained US-Pakistan relations, sources said.
