In that post you were introduced to or refreshed your memory of the TTP and their western intelligence ties. Not limited to Raymond Davis, of course. And, not limited to the US.
First, I wanted to expand a bit on the topic of protests in Pakistan, protests that have sprung up because of the murders carried out by Raymond Davis.
I posted a picture in the previous post of a protest in Lahore.Take a look at it.
I now want to share an additional photo with you.
Ordinary looking people.
Yesterday I happened to catch a glimpse of a photo of a Tehrik e Taliban of Pakistan protester, a woman, head to toe in a burka, holding an English language sign calling for Davis's death. I cannot find that today, so I am hopeful you will take my word for it.
When I saw that photo, I noted the impact of the image and I wondered who was the intended audience?
Does anyone recall the case of the Times Square bomber? I did a post on that story, way back. If you wish to click back feel free.
Why am I mentioning the Times Square bomber in relation to Raymond Davis and the TTP?
You might think it is unrelated, but, it is directly related.
The Times Square bombing was the first time that existence of the Tehrik i Taliban of Pakistan touched the western consciousness.
Pakistani militants, known as the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), have claimed responsibility for the abortive terrorist attack in Times Square earlier this month. The alleged conspirator, Faisal Shehzad, has reportedly admitted to attending training camps in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) where the TTP have asserted control in recent years. Yet despite the obvious threat posed by the group to both Pakistan and the West, relatively little is known about them.
The TTP hangs out in the Tribal areas of Pakistan. You know the same "lawless" tribal areas that are always the excuse for US/NATO intervention??
Another interesting twist concerning the TTP and Davis?
The TTP has demanded that the Pakistani government either kill Davis or hand him over to them!
“We demand that the Pakistani government hang Raymond Davis or otherwise hand him over to us. We will decide his fate,” the Daily Times quoted TTP spokesman Azam Tariq, as saying.Would they kill their bread and butter provider? No.
If the Pakistani government hands him over to the TTP, they will just deliver him back safely to their western paymasters.
As of today, Pakistan news is reporting that Raymond Davis will be tried for two murders.
Only after the courts determine if he has diplomatic immunity.
A Pakistani court adjourned on Friday the trial of a CIA contractor charged with killing two Pakistanis until March 3, dismissing U.S. demands for his release.
The contractor, Raymond Davis, shot dead two men in the eastern city of Lahore last month. He said he acted in self-defence and the United States says he has diplomatic immunity and should be repatriated.
The case has inflamed anti-American sentiment in Pakistan and is straining relations between the allies. Pakistani efforts against Islamist militants on its border with Afghanistan are seen as crucial to ending the war in neighbouring Afghanistan.
"He (Davis) said that he should be given immunity ... a discussion will be held on this at the next hearing," said Asad Manzoor Butt, a lawyer for the families of the two men Davis killed.
Davis, a former U.S. special forces officer, has been charged with double-murder and faces possible execution.
I am rather amazed that Pakistan has not not released him as of yet.
Getting a bit further.
Before I end this post today. I am going to link to an interesting article.
Is Israel running the TTP?
If they are not running the TTP, they are surely involved.
Because where the US is, Israel is. Or vice versa.
This article makes mention of the gamut of intelligence backed terrorist groups. Names you should know if you have been paying attention.. The PKK, TTP and of course Jundallah.
To name a few. You can throw in the KLA and of course Al Qaeda.
But, I digress so back to the article.
43 Pakistanis were killed in a terror attack, killed for supporting Palestinians in Gaza.
This attack was vicious and clearly the work of Israel. This was a terror attack meant as a message to the people of the world telling them that if they rally in support of those imprisoned in Gaza, they will be murdered.
This is far from the first time Israel has been caught. The PKK, the Kurdish terrorist group, communists, who have been attacking Turkey from their mountain “caves” in Iraq for over 40 years have long been trained, funded and even recruited by Israel’s Mossad. Now the partnership between India and Israel, helped along, not only by the CIA, the Karzai brothers “corporation” and MI -6 is becoming difficult to ignore.
Pakistan is important. For years, the “CIA” and other intelligence organizations have been in Baluchistan sneaking in and out of Iran blowing things up. How much of that is CIA and how much is Mossad, nobody knows for sure. This is another terrorist organization, called the “Jundallah.” Like the PKK in Turkey and the Tehrik-i-Taliban, the terrorist group making life in Pakistan a living hell, the Jundallah get all the money, weapons, training, transportation and maybe more, much more, they need to fight covert wars against the targets of Tel Aviv.
Make no mistake, Pakistan is a target of Tel Aviv.
