CARLSON: I beg your pardon?

MCDERMOTT: ... Pakistanis.

CARLSON: You're breaking news here, Congressman. I don't think this has ever been reported before in the United States.

MCDERMOTT: Oh, yes, it has been. We funded the Taliban through the Pakistanis, and all that money -- we could have cut off that money and stopped what was going on. We knew what was going on there.

Pakistan And The Taliban's Relationship Spans Decades. Here's What It Looks Like Now

National Public Radio

AILSA CHANG, HOST: When Taliban fighters were sweeping across Afghanistan, the hashtag #SanctionPakistan lit up the Twittersphere. Pakistan has long been seen as backing the militant group in defiance of the rest of the world. But now that the Taliban have seized control of Afghanistan, that relationship could change. NPR's Jackie Northam reports from Islamabad.

JACKIE NORTHAM, BYLINE: The Taliban's stunning victory in Afghanistan was met with horror throughout much of the Western world. It was a slightly different story in some quarters of Pakistan. A few days after militants seized Kabul, a white-and-black Taliban flag was flying from the roof of a radical mosque here in Islamabad. Social media showed government officials celebrating, and Prime Minister Imran Khan said the Taliban had broken the shackles of slavery. The jubilation signaled the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan was as much a win for Pakistan's government as it was for the militants.

AFRASIAB KHATTAK: Taliban is a project of security institution of Pakistan. It's not really an Indigenous Afghan movement or something....

NORTHAM: Khattak says Pakistan's relationship with the Taliban goes back decades to when the mujahideen were based in the northwest city of Peshawar. ... Mehmood Jan Babar, a local journalist, returned from Kabul a day before he spoke to NPR. He says many Afghans see the Taliban as proxies of Pakistan, an image the Taliban is trying to shake.

Probe reveals Omar ‘dealt with Pearl at ISI bidding’

London, April 21
A new investigation has revealed detailed links between Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Omar Sheikh, prime suspect in Wall Street Journal Daniel Pearl’s kidnapping and murder case.

India helped FBI trace ISI-terrorist links

NEW DELHI: While the Pakistani Inter Services Public Relations claimed that former ISI director-general Lt-Gen Mahmud Ahmad sought retirement after being superseded on Monday, the truth is more shocking.

Top sources confirmed here on Tuesday, that the general lost his job because of the "evidence" India produced to show his links to one of the suicide bombers that wrecked the World Trade Centre. The US authorities sought his removal after confirming the fact that $100,000 were wired to WTC hijacker Mohammed Atta from Pakistan by Ahmad Umar Sheikh at the instance of Gen Mahumd.

Did Pearl die because Pakistan deceived CIA?

But there is also a tragedy of disbelief. There are many in Musharraf's government who believe that Saeed Sheikh's power comes not from the ISI, but from his connections with our own CIA.

Musharraf Denies Pakistan Is Harboring Taliban
by Renée Montagne

Morning Edition, September 27, 2006 • President Pervez Musharraf rejects claims that Pakistan is a safe haven for Taliban and al-Qaida leaders. Gen. Musharraf, in Washington, D.C., to meet with President Bush and Afghan President Hamid Karzai, recently signed a controversial truce with tribal leaders along the Afghanistan border.

Montagne: A study by the RAND Corporation which has not been released finds that it is the Pakistan spy agency, ISI, that is feeding the Taliban with intelligence about US forces; that its directly or indirectly providing training to Taliban forces at various locations inside Pakistan; and this report finds along with General James Jones, the NATO commander, that Pakistan is where the Taliban is headquartered, in Quetta.

Musharraf: I want to give a brief answer; this is humbug, and it is all wrong. Quetta is our capital of Baluchistan. There is a provincial government functioning there. There is a army corp headquartered there. And there is an intelligence set up jointly by CIA and Pakistan intelligence. If they are all fools that they don't know there is a headquarters of Taliban there, its a pity.

"The CIA helped convert ISI into the huge organization that it is now ... with all the power it enjoys," he said.

The spy agency not only helped the Taliban, Rasheed said, but also trained Muslim militants fighting in Indian Kashmir.

Terrorism Suspicion Hangs Over Pakistan's ISI
by Mary Louise Kelly

Morning Edition, November 17, 2006 • India has accused Pakistan's powerful intelligence agency, the ISI, of planning the Mumbai train bombings that killed almost 200 people this past summer. Meanwhile, a leaked British defense ministry memo alleges that the ISI has been indirectly helping al-Qaida.

Mary Louise Kelly: "Back at ISI headquarters, a senior official presented with this view shrugs, then his eyes turn steely. 'If we were secretly helping the Taliban and Al Qaeda,' he asks, 'do you think we would get all the support we do from your CIA?' "
