A document was recently made public by a nonprofit group. This document was market secret and was heavily redacted however, it did make a startling claim. According to the document, the Pakistani government helped fund the 2009 CIA suicide attack. This document described an elaborate plot where Pakistan’s intelligence agencies conveniently put up close to $200,000 for the 2009 CIA suicide attack. It is widely believed that the claims made in the document are unsubstantiated.
The internal investigation on the 2009 CIA suicide attack concluded that the plot was cooked up by al Qaeda and its allies in Pakistan, Pakistani Taliban. U.S. Officials maintain that there is no credible evidence linking Pakistani State actors to the attack. He stated,
The document clearly states that it contains unevaluated information… The Haqqanis are brutal terrorists who continue to target innocent people, including Americans. Nonetheless, the general consensus is that the 30 December attack was primarily an al Qaeda plot and did not involve the Haqqani network.

Pakistan is determined to eradicate the scourge of terrorism and has taken action against all terrorist elements, without discrimination.
