The most interesting aspect is the killing of a journalist. Fine line
between an investigative journalist and spy. When you rattle around
topics nobody wants aired, you pay the price. Truth tellers always get
shot. Its much easier to lie or make up stories.

i don't think we're going anywhere with this SSS thing, though it is
interesting.

The poor ******* went down the rabbit hole and was neutralized.

ISI is fully infiltrated by sympathizers and operatives. So, he was
killed by ISI. Will we find a smoking gun? No. Will anybody care
about this dude? Not really. The Agency lost an asset. Life goes
on. There is a reason the CIA set up unilateral operations in
Pakistan.


Suggest everyone read David Ignatius new book on CIA NOC and front
company operations in Pakistan. Once again, he has gotten dead
right.

the question, though, is still who did it.

It means very different things if it is the ISI, the traditional
military, or the jihadists.
Then a question of who within those
groups can also mean different things. Not saying we can answer that
very easily, but who specifically killed who (with the support of
who) would explain if there is an issue or not. Operating between
the intelligence services and jihadists is a very, very dangerous
place- so it's not all that surprising that these deaths occur. And
as tensions go up, so will those deaths. But we would have to know
the same people were involved in the deaths to really know what 'the
issue' actually is.

The issue is not the man himself (though I am personally spooked
out because I knew him and we met not too long ago and he wrote on
my fb wall a day before he went missing). Instead the issue is the
growing number of deaths of people who have been supportive of
jihadists. Recall KK and Col Imam and now Triple-S. The other
thing is that each of these 3 people were with the ISI at one
point. A former army chief confirmed to me that SSS was at one
point on the payroll. Each of these guys had a falling out with
the official ISI but maintained links deep within the service.
These guys have also had ties to jihadists of one type while
pissing off other more radical types.

Note his May 20 book release.

He was living on borrowed time operating in the belly of the
beast. His last interview is telling. Regardless, he's dead.
Life on the edge.

These three stories are pretty good on his death and what was

Just throwing ideas out here. This is such a clusterfuck I
don't know what to think.

His next was to be "Next: Recruitment and training of militants
" So who was doing the recruitment and training, huh?
If it's anything like the first half, it sounds like he's going
to accuse someone in the Pakistani military. Maybe they wanted
to stop that?

Excerpt of new book on AQ and friends. Says the Mumbai plan was
ISI's and a dude under Kashmiri at LeT carried it out:
http://www.syedsaleemshahzad.com/2011/05/who-masterminded-mumbai-attack/

It seems just as likely jihadists could go after him for
exposing their location (or that they thought he exposed it).
The reports I've read through of 'torture' were really just that
he had been hit in the face. That's probably pretty typical of
any militant or criminal outfit, and while the other reports of
his ISI meetings were more peaceful, it wouldn't be that
difficult for them to go that far either.

Here's his email to the HRW:
http://asiancorrespondent.com/56321/saleem-shahzad-dead-another-one-bites-the-dust/

For future reference:

Meeting details as on October 17, 2010 at the ISI headquarters
Islamabad between DG Media Wing ISI, Rear Admiral Adnan Nazir
and Syed Saleem Shahzad, the Bureau Chief Pakistan for Asia
Times Online (Hong Kong). Commodore Khalid Pervaiz, the Deputy
Director General of Media Wing ISI was also present during the
conversation.

Agenda of the meeting: discussion on Asia Times Online story
published on October 15, 2010, titled Pakistan frees Taliban
commander (see
http://atimes.com/atimes/South_Asia/LJ16Df02.html).

The meeting discussed the following issues.

1-Syed Saleem Shahzad told Rear Admiral Adnan that an
intelligence channel leaked the story. However, he added that
story was published only after a confirmation from the most
credible Taliban source. Syed also explained that DG ISPR was
sent a text message about the story, but he did not respond.

2- Rear Admiral Adnan Nazir had the view that story caused a lot
of embracement for the country but observed that issuing a
denial from the government side is no solution. He suggested
Syed Saleem Shahzad should write a denial of the story.

3- Syed Shahzad refused to comply with demand and termed it
impractical.

4-Rear Admiral Adnan was curious to know the source of the story
as it is a shame that information would leak from the office of
a high profile intelligence service.

5- Syed Shahzad called it an intelligence leak but did not
specify the source.

6-The conversation was held in an extremely polite and friendly
atmosphere and there was no mince word in the room at any stage.
Rear Admiral Adnan Nazir also offered Syed Saleem Shahzad a
favor in following words.

"I must give you a favor. We have recently arrested a terrorist
and have recovered a lot of data, dairies and other material
during the interrogation. The terrorist had a hit list with him.
If I find your name in the list, I will certainly let you know,"

Pretty big one. Domestic and int'l media ****-storm about how
ISI brutally killed a journalist who uncovered ties between
navy and aQ. The big thing now is aQ penetration of ISI.

Fears are growing for the safety of a well-known Pakistani journalist
who has been missing for 39 hours now and, according to an international
advocacy group, is believed to be in the custody of Pakistan's
controversial Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Human
Rights Watch declared that Syed Saleem Shahzad, a reporter working for
the Hong Kong-based Asia Times Online and Adnkronos International, the
Italian news agency, could be subject to mistreatment and even torture
while in custody.

UPDATE: Pakistan's main news channels are reporting that Shahzad's dead
body has been found. One news channel broadcast what appeared to be a
black and white image of Shahzad's face. There were visible signs of
torture..

Hahahaha.........ISI who released the murderer of 2 of its agents and a third pakistani citizen(Raymond Davis)!
ISI who was a silent spectator when 40,000+ pakistani citizens succumbed to death!
ISI who was asleep when US chucked away OBL from Abbottabad!
ISI who was videotaping and wiretapping judges and politicians when terrorists stormed GHQ and Mehran naval base!

And after such marvelous endeavors finally ISI succeeded in killing one of its own unarmed citizen; Bravo:).

Well, seeing ur comment about Iran and Syria in a totally unrelated thread made me believe for a moment that may be u r in love with iranian and syrian mullahs. That`s why i asked u. It is better to ask than assume.

Nope, if SSS would have been a CIA agent, ISI would definitely give him a red carpet departure to airport and send SSS to states as ISI did with Raymond Davis(Killer of 2 ISI agents).

As far as Meer Jaffar and Meer Sadiq are concerned, u should ask Mr Pasha who was sending minute by minute detail of Raymond Davis court hearing to Camron Munter(US Ambassador).

No claim. Raymond Davis, a CIA agent murdered 2 ISI agents, was sent to states with love from ISI & Pasha. That`s how CIA agents are entertained by ISI. Whole world saw that CIA~ISI love saga:). May be u had fantasized some different end for CIA agents but who cares about ur wish; ISI?.... certainly not. That incident is a mirror and u will see the same face no matter how many times u see into it!

And u did not tell me about Iranian and Syrian mullahs, believe me i m still intrigued:).

isi was not silent spectator in Osama operation!they were leading the operation .remember that.dont trust ur media whose iman is jhoot and more jhoot. as for GHQ and naval base attacks.the attacks most probably took place from inside the base.the trouble with hiring muslims in pak army is that some don't like Pakistani armys collaboration with America.perhaps that's why nowdays in army recruitment and promotions if you are religious you are rejected at once

the truth is,that without ISI help America,s death and destruction in Afghanistan would have been ten times more (even now America has lost an arm and leg in Afghanistan lol,so imagine what wud have happened without isi help...and America also rewards its naukars very well.so there is reason why they work for America.in working for islam there is no monetary benefit ,)
