Pakistan's ISI still backs Taliban: US[Sunday, April 11, 2010,10:47 [IST]

Pakistan's ISI still backs Taliban: USUS officials have alleged that Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) has freed at least two top Afghan Taliban leaders, whom it had captured some time back.
US military and intelligence officials said the releases are evidence that parts of Pakistan's security establishment continue to support the Afghan Taliban.

The officials refused to divulge many details of the freed Taliban commanders, but said that they were 'high-ranking Taliban members'.The ISI wants to be able to resort to the hard-power option of supporting groups that can take Kabul, if the United States suddenly leaves," said a US military adviser briefed on the matter.
