LIES, DAMNED LIES AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES


ARE YOUR UNREAD EMAILS PILING UP?

If you’re prone to worrying about leaving your emails to pile up rather than deal with them promptly, then hold on, you’re in good company.

The Pakistani secret service, the ISI, hasn’t answered theirs for over a year.

But wait you say, that’s no big deal, most emails are junk anyway. They’re probably only spam and letters from relatives raving about the holidays you weren’t invited to go on with thousands of pictures of people you never want to see again.

UNITED STATES’ CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

However, according to the Wall Street Journal, the emails are from the CIA laying out the targets and locations of the next month’s drone attacks.

And the ISI won’t reply so they can claim it is nothing to do with them…

And in the crazy world of counter-terrorism and international law, the US government lawyers regard this as tacit approval, because Pakistan does respond in kind.  It does this by “de-conflicting” its airspace – in normal speech – Pakistan prevents its aircraft from flying in the areas concerned.

In an April speech, White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the administration has concluded there is nothing in international law barring the U.S. from using lethal force against a threat to the U.S., despite the absence of a declared war, provided the country involved consents or is unable or unwilling to take action against the threat.

So that’s okay then.

LAUNCH THEM DRONES…
