Another incident to prove that #ISI knew the 9/11 was popular "Money Man " story of then #ISI DG #MahmudAhmed.

It's important to understand little history before going to this curious case of #ISI funding the 9/11 attacker .
In 1999 #Musharraf unconstitutionally snatched power #Nawaz convenienced his bullies that #Nawaz may cooperate with US to counter Taliban which is against the interest and policy of Pakistan ( He too did same later ).
The other fact was after #kargil loss #NawazSharif had  terminated the commission of Gen #Musharraf and promoted then DG #ISI Gen #Ziauddin as an army chief.
Soon after Gen #Musharraf took over the office , he took back the decision of promoting Gen #Zia and ordered an enquiry.

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n
