The Attack on the Haqqanis

Moon of Alabama

September 10, 2008

On Sunday the New York times published a report by Dexter Filkins on the Taliban in Pakistan. I excerpted the gist here.

That report included some information on the Haqqani clan:

In 2006, a senior ISI official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told a New York Times reporter that he regarded Serajuddin Haqqani as one of the ISIĺs intelligence assets. "We are not apologetic about this," the ISI official said. For a presumed ally of the United States, that was a stunning admission: Haqqani, an Afghan, is currently one of the Talibanĺs most senior commanders battling the Americans in eastern Afghanistan. His father, Jalaluddin, is a longtime associate of bin Ladenĺs. The Haqqanis are believed to be overseeing operations from a hiding place in the Pakistani tribal agency of North Waziristan.

Two days later the U.S. attacked the residence of the Haqqani clan:

The drones were apparently targeting the house or the madrassa established by former Taliban commander Jalaluddin Haqqani during the 1978-88 Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, residents said.

At least 23 people died in that attack. The Haqqani men are said to be in Afghanistan at the time of the attack and were not hit.

For the Pakistani security forces the Haqqanis are the good guys. The father was helpful in kicking out the Soviets from Afghanistan. It is said that Hamid Karzai offered him the job of the prime minister. The son fights the current occupation in Afghanistan. They do not make trouble in Pakistan.

So one wonders about this attack:

  • Is timing of the attack related to the Filkins piece that noted Haqqani's role?
  • Is this a message to the Pakistani security service ISI on the day the Pakistan parliaments voted for a new president?

I do not believe that this hit and its timing was random. There is a story behind this.

  • Who gave the order for the attack for what reason?
  • Did someone high up read the NYT on Sunday and picked up the phone?
  • Did someone decide that the ISI itself is the next target and sent a warning?

Let me know what you suspect.
