But attack provides further evidence of a US and UK war effort being betrayed by regional ‘allies’
We understand the operation had been formed and supported by outgoing US Commander General McChrystal.
Sources close to the region told us early today that the intelligence situation there is “increasingly complex and fraught with judgement dilemmas”. Agents and intelligence gatherers are regularly forced to give more trust than they can reasonably assign to agents of whose final loyalties (if any) they are unsure.
The raid follows the earlier, more successful attack on the Islamabad NATO base on 12th June last.
