Pakistan weekly spills 9/11 beans

Summary of the article


New Delhi, March 12, 2006

US lobbyists have received tens of thousands of dollars from Pakistan to omit anti-Pakistan references from the 9/11 inquiry commission report. They have also been bribed to prevent them from including other damaging information about Pakistan.

The Public Accounts Committee grilled officials in the presence of foreign secretary Riaz Mohammad Khan and special secretary Sher Afghan on the money paid to lobbyists.

"The disclosure sheds doubt on the integrity and honesty of the members of the 9/11 inquiry commission and, above all, the authenticity of the information in their final report," it said.

The commission told the lobbyists about the damaging revelations on Pakistan's role in 9/11, and helped Pakistan win the sympathy of 75 US Congressmen as part of its strategy to guard Islamabad's interests in Washington.
