    FBI finding forces ISI chief out

    New Delhi, October 8: Pakistani director general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt. Gen. Mahmud Ahmed has been forced into retirement after FBI investigators established credible links between him and Umer Sheikh, one of the three militants released in exchange for passengers of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999.


    The FBI team had sought adequate inputs about various terrorists including Sheikh from the intelligence agencies and was working on the links between Sheikh and former ISI Chief Gen. Mahmud.


    Informed sources said there were enough indications with US intelligence agencies that it was at Gen. Mahmud’s instruction that Sheikh had transferred a large sum into the account of Mohammed Atta, one of the lead terrorists in strikes at the World Trade Centre on September 11.


    Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee had also mentioned to British Prime Minister Tony Blair about the specific links between IC-814 hijacking and September 11 terrorist attacks.


    The Indian intelligence agencies had also shared several inputs about the linkages between the hijacker and the ISI chief with the US and other Western intelligence groups, the sources said.


    Sheikh was among the three militants released by the government after the IC-814 was hijacked to Kandahar in 1999. The other two were Maulana Masood Azhar and Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar. (PTI)

      Prime Minister Vajpayee also complained to Tony Blair about Gen Musharraf being behind the Alliance Air hijacking drama last week and showed him evidence linking the two.

              Dawn is quoting the indian paper that 'reported' this garbage. Check the originating city of the news...New Dehli. And match the text of the dawn insert, and the news above, in Tanhaa's post. They are identical. satisfied?

                Hmmmmmm lecturing on credibility of the source. Several thousand non Paki/Indo links I provided in the last few posts were shot down by his highness and suddenly Dawn rate high on your scale. very good, not bad not bad.

                FYI Dawn publishes Ayaz Amirs garb on daily basis their news is as good as Ayaz Amir himself. I once write to Dawn asking how come you know 5 muj. were killed in IOK do you have reporters based in India. After quite a few attempts their reply was basically who cares we got it from Indian sources and have to fill the space. My reply was move to India you will fit right in.

                How about striaght from the horses mouth. General has been having open pesss confrences quite frequently unlike India you are welcome to ask any question.

                  'Dawn' has not quoted any newspaper. and if originating city is delhi, the news is still given by 'Dawn' journalist or 'Dawn monitoring desk' whatever.

                  anyway, u can always disbelieve what does not suit you. so that it is.
