Pakistan, a major recipient of U.S. military funding directly financed the suicide bombing that killed seven CIA employees at Camp Chapman in Khost, Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 alleges a declassified U.S. intelligence document.
It was the deadliest attack sustained by the CIA in 26 years, and according to a just-declassified U.S. intelligence cable, Pakistan’s military intelligence agency paid a notorious Islamist terror group $200,000 to carry it out.
State Department spokesman John Kirby, asked about the claim Thursday, declined to “speak about intelligence matters.”
The shock allegation – that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Directorate financed the Haqqani network’s suicide bombing that killed seven CIA employees at Camp Chapman in Khost, Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 – is contained in a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document, marked secret and dated February 6 of the following year.
It was obtained, in heavily-redacted form, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the National Security Archive, an independent non-governmental research institute at The George Washington University. CNSNews
