Official: CIA-trained force targeting militants in Pakistan

The CIA created and controls a paramilitary force of 3,000 Afghans that conducts clandestine missions targeting al Qaeda and Taliban fighters in Pakistan, a U.S. official told CNN on Wednesday.

The official described the force as "well-trained" and "effective."

"You're talking about one of the finest Afghan fighting forces, which has made major contributions to security and stability," the official said.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the topic.

    And who is training the CIA????? This is the real question, who is training that inept brood of losers who can't even tell and recruit a Jordanian Bomber to put these MORONS out of their misery. I am ashamed that our supposed Secret Agents (CIA) are not even smart enough or security conscience enough to tell who has a bomb on them and kills them.
    Good Job Leon, the CIA should be called Civilians Imitating @sses!!!! Let the Marines do the ops, hell we kill everybody and let GOD sort it out.

    I love that show, that is how i got my 17 year old wife, who else would have had me i am 72 and my former name was Gerald Pigg. Try it, all you have to do is pretend to convert and the world is your oyster (except i am not allowed them anymore) still viagra takes care of that.

    None of my questions were personal. So it is not relevant what Dean means.

    The question is can you stop and be happy when you have peace or must you persecute all other religions to try to convert the whole world to taliban islam? Why insult other beleifs? No one is attacking the taliban because the taliban beleive in 360 the wars are because the taliban attack everyone else to force everyone to convert.

      In the Book "Kite Runners"(written by an Afghan) explains who these Taliban are.Anyway it is good to fight with words rather than guns and bullets. when I prayed for my country..I wanted all the children both tamil and Sinhala to be free from Terrorists. Same way I hope the war in Afghanistan will end and both parties will help these young men to live with their families. Because they did not create this war. But they are the one who pay from their lives.

    The one of thousands understand the Narrow path which is very difficult. That is where you die like a hero. Not hiding under ground and send others to do what you have to do. I am alive today because so many heroes gave their life here against terrorism so I can type right now from Sri lanka. We dont need a God who tell to kill others because of their blind faith for him.

      Just because someone is Christian does not mean they will give their country to insurgents.

      The blame is with the insurgents who try to steal by murdering. Let the good people defent themselves and keep their country.

    If someone stole everything you have ...then what do you do...in hunger...???you go to ask why you did that? Then next thing you say is send the people who stole in to the court yard. Still they dont come. Then...do you allow the first one who stole to live ????No ....you stone to death. Some times it is not a robbery even. Not a murder even. Dont you think THAT JESUS SAID " if it is your hand which committed the sin cut it. So be happy when the first one who stole get the punishment for cowardly act here . Because the punishment in hell is worse than this....

    The anger and hate of others come from belly. It is not the holy spirit. So you know the rest.....you speak what your heart says. If the heart is a holy temple of God ..that heart wont speak such hateful words.well... keep laughing over innocent deaths, you are really dangerous ..because QURAN says only Muslims believe true God. So I dont blame you . You do what QURAN HAS TOLD YOU TO DO. This war is not mine. It is the war of the lord whoever I believe. It does not matter to you what I believe. Dont worry where we go .you look after where you go .

    The only teachings of Jesus were, and you cannot seem to grasp onto it, love, forgiveness and repentance for the sinner! The only exception to this is when he taught in parables to his disciples about the Pharisees and the end times. Oh and also how we should love one another as we love ourselves and their are many more concerning love but he never taught sharia laws or punishments thereof!

      Christiane you can translate the old testament any way you wish but I see it as a history lesson and what we should learn from it is that even God's chosen people fell short of the glory of God and in Isaiah the prophet foretells the Messiah's coming and his departure. While the new testament is also a great learning tool but of Jesus the Messiah. Not only from HIS own mouth but also from the four gospels and Paul formally Saul the worst persecutor of the early Christians until Jesus showed him the light and blinded him for a while. Then he renamed himself and wrote many of the remaining books in the new testament.
