As per my sources, there's intense fighting going on between Taliban and ANDSF in Spin Boldak, Kandahar tonight. Taliban earlier captured nearby areas. Chances are Taliban could be soon in control of Spin Boldak, which would put them in control of Afghan-Pakistan border area.

The only 2 claims about rocket attacks came from #Khurasan But #IEA reported on several occasions #USA drone strikes and participation in ground ops with #ANDSF (which Col. Sonny denied), so its possible that some response ensued. Image
But @nytimes mentioned #Helmand as a main place where missile attacks happened. Looks like Americans didn't leave bases there afterall
Also its worth to know that Pentagon actively undermines Doha deal and its actors trough affiliated media and political structures. General McChrystal is actively involved in #USA internal political strife against Trump

Demands by Richard Armitage were clear he wanted Gen Mahmud to agree it and gave no options.

The Demands were

1) #Pakistan must stop #AlQaeda and laden to use its soil.

2) To provide permission for US planes to fly and land in #Pakistan.

3) Access to all Air and Naval bases.
4) #ISI must share all confidential information on #Osama and #AlQaeda.

5) #Pakistan Govt must never allow protest by it's citizens against #US and it's allies.

6) To stop fuel supply to #Taliban and to stop sending people to join them.

7) To cut diplomatic ties with #Taliban.
Lt.Gen #Mahmud agreed to all conditions and conveyed the same to #Musharraf and he was ok with it ( I repeat it ).

As soon as he came back from US Lt.Gen headed towards Afghanistan to meet #MullahOmar and convince him to handover #Osama.

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.
