The former head of our Secret Service, CSIS, stated publically a year or so ago that Indian intelligene was absolutely everywhere in Afghanistan, that they were the largest, best equiped, and most trusted foreign secret service in the field, and that they had money pouring into all sides and that they were the go-to contacts for Afghani government officials looking for business prospects... and that NATO partners were in total denial about it.

If the world made sense he would havebeen listened to, but he was completely ignored and even I don't remember his name.

I'm curious what you mean by the US "let" India play a larger role. I don't think they consulted anyone for permission.

The quote is from the article, not freecell. It was said by "analyst Lalit Mansingh, a former Indian foreign secretary and ambassador to Washington."


Weird sentence - can't tell if they mean former ambassador. Think so.

Thoughts?

The U.S. is now willing to let India play a larger role in Afghanistan, and certainly Afghanistan wants it," said analyst Lalit Mansingh, a former Indian foreign secretary and ambassador to Washington. "After years of being sidelined, India is now regarded very much as part of the solution."

Sadly we do now, Obama is weak. Cheney NEVER would have allowed this to happen on his watch.
