U.S. envoy gets an earful from Pakistan conservatives

America’s special representative to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke, has been holding a series of meetings in Pakistan — and not just with top government officials.

Anita McNaught of Worldfocus partner Al Jazeera English reports from Islamabad that Holbrooke reached out to conservative Muslim leaders — and got an earful once he did.

I hope Richard Holbrooke was listening very closely to Fazul-Ur Rehman because the mess that was created by the United States is correct.
Operation Cyclone was the code name for the CIA program to arm Afghan Mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan; 3-$20 Billion dollars in US funds were funneled into the Country to train and equip troops with weapons. By 1987 65,000 tons of US-made weapons and ammunition a year were entering the war estimates of 35,000 Foreign Muslims from 43 Islamic Countries including Bin Laden participated in the War.
Fazul-Ur Rehman should not forget also that Pakistan’s interservice agency went so far as assisting the process of gathering radical Muslims from around the World to fight against the Soviets.
