Indian Times Again Highlights Goss-Hijackers Link
Goss is well-clued to issues in the Indian sub-continent, although he is said to take the conventional American view about the vital role Pakistan has in the war on terrorism without examining how and why the country became a magnet for terrorists.
Most controversially, Goss was having a breakfast meeting in Washington with the then ISI chief Mahmoud Ahmad at the exact instant the 9/11 hijackers flew their planes into the World Trade Center. Ahmad was a Taliban supporter who was subsequently removed from his job when he continued to bat for the outlaw regime post 9/11.
Some reports have suggested that Ahmad and the ISI had links
to -- or foreknowledge about -- 9/11. A money transfer from Karachi to the
hijackers in Florida has never been fully explored or explained. Ahmad was
never called to account for this or his support to the Taliban post 9/11 even
as General Musharraf moved him into the shadows.
