Asking Pakistan's powerful spy agency ISI to severe ties with terrorist organisations, in particular the "Haqqani network", top US military commander Admiral Mike Mullen has said America was prepared to take all appropriate measures to protect its people in the region. "The ISI has been
doing this -- working for -- supporting proxies for an extended period of time. It is a strategy in the country and I think that strategic approach has to shift in the future," Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in response to a question at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington-based think tank.
"It's my own view, it's going in the wrong direction in addition to those that they they're proxy issues associated with Haqqani and others. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that Haqqani was behind the attack on the American embassy the other day. Haqqani was behind the truck bomb attack which injured 77 US soldiers, killed five Afghans.
