US close to adding Haqqani network to terror list

By Jill Dougherty and Elise Labott

The United States will soon designate the Haqqani network, the al Qaeda-linked group considered to be a major threat against U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, as a foreign terrorist organization, U.S. officials tell CNN.

The anticipated move by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which would freeze assets, comes after several high-profile attacks on U.S. and NATO troops, as well as Afghan government and civilian targets, and public warnings from U.S. military officials that the Pakistan government refuses to stop the group from operating.

One official said action will be taken "fairly soon."

Under an executive order the State Department targeted what it calls the "kingpins" of the Haqqani network, including financiers, leadership and some of its most dangerous operatives. In 2008 it targeted Siraj Haqqani, in 2011 Badruddin Haqqani and Sangeen Zadran. The Treasury Department designated Nasiruddin Haqqani in 2010, and Khalil Haqqani, Ahmed Jan Zadran and Fazl Rabi in 2011.

Members of Congress, however, have been pressing for the entire organization to be named. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said he'd asked for the designation.

"I've repeatedly written to Secretary Clinton to press to have the Haqqani group added to the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations to make more tools available to our government agencies to sanction that organization," Levin said at a committee hearing last week. "This step is long overdue."

"I think everyone's just trying to think through what the potential repercussions are and make sure that we keep open our options and our own national security interests," one senior administration official told CNN.

That official said the move could be more symbolic than anything.

"There is a question about how much this would actually do because it freezes Haqqani assets in U.S. banks," the official said. The group does not have a lot of money in U.S. banks, according to another official.

The administration has had high-level discussions in the past about designating the Haqqani network as a foreign terrorist organization. Some in the military felt it was warranted and pushed for the designation, according to two senior U.S. officials.

But the Obama administration had resisted listing the group out of concern that it would drive the Haqqanis away from a possible peace deal. The group, with its links to other Taliban entities, was considered integral to the political reconciliation the U.S. was hoping to move forward, according to two senior U.S. officials.

Matthew Levitt of The Washington Institute told CNN, "To the extent one believes you can reconcile, you would want to not antagonize them in a moment when they are coming in from the cold."

He says, however, that "every indication is that the Haqqani network is getting more extreme and is affiliated with whichever radical element is active at the time." Recent attacks by the group, he says, have shown that "they have not responded to reconciliation."

Ultimately the administration took a smaller step of designating some leaders in the group on an executive order

"Once we fingered the Haqqanis for the deaths of Americans I don't see how we don't designate them but there have been valid reasons why we haven't done it to date," a third U.S. official said.

But the official disputed that this was done in reaction to Adm. Mike Mullen's comments last week. Mullen, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, accused Pakistan's top intelligence agency of supporting the Haqqani network and its attacks against U.S. targets in Afghanistan.

"The decision to list would have been made anyway, I don't think Mullen's statements drove this ... it might have accelerated the decision a little bit. But the real issue is relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan," the official said.

Once a final decision is made, the process takes approximately two to three weeks to enact. When Clinton decides to designate the group, the decision goes to the Treasury and Justice departments to get their sign-off. After that Congress is notified.

    Posted on Its just wonderful to see how three best frdiens wind up in a storythats just so complicated and poetic. I was amazed by the outcome ofevery situation and I think there should be more movies like this one.Even the music was perfect for the movie. I also really like it whenthe makers put something useful to know in the movie and in this one,they certainly did, but what I liked most is that the piece that themouse (or rat) played in the story, without it, the movie would havebeen less meaningful and I think its really great that people can comeup with these things to put in their movie which completes it without it, the film wouldnt have been the same. great piece ofwork

    Asalam aleyekum and Ya Ali madad, Ok i am ismaili boy from pakistan and this person who is calling her/him self an ismaili Girl is 100% not an ismaili. She is lying. I am ismaili and proud to be pakistani. All Ismailis love Pakistan thats a fact. We are happy with pakistani government and majority of people in pakistan are the best in the world. There are Ismailis who are ministers and governor , who are in Army, government and who own big businesses all our rights are fully protected in Pakistan. This so called ismaili girl is lying about her parents being kicked out of pakistan coz they were ismaili thats a lie. The user is an internet troll who is trying to divide Muslims. Founder of Muslim league was an Ismaili Imam, Jinnah himself was an ismaili and also nishane-e-haide holder havaldar lalak Jan was an ismaili. As an Ismaili i love Pakistan as much as i love my religion.

    India had always supported the Soviets but Pakistan sided with the Americans against the Soviets. Indians still hate Americans and they would still switch sides if they will again get a chance but America supporting these Indians against Pakistan is bit surprising? Pakistan and America always had good relations even before the 9/11 attacks. Why India is so important for United States than Pakistan? only because Pakistan has nuclear weapons which is only there so these Indians wont attack us? Why America speaking the language of these Indians and calling the most powerful establishments of Pakistan a terrorist? Pakistanis are still surprised the way America is reacting now.

    Historians had told these illiterate Americans that nobody in this history could ever defeat these Pashtuns or Haqqanis or Talibans or whatever name you can use for them. These people cannot be ever defeated. Robert Gates even called Rumsfeld a brainless moron for sending American troops in Afghanistan. Ask the Soviets or the British or Moguls who lost against these Talibans. These are the facts. Nobody can ever defeat these people and nobody will. Only you can negotiate with them otherwise just pack your bags.

      Here is your homework. Why is that Pashtoon who have defeated and destroyed all the great empires of the world cannot defeat the Pakistanis? If you can answer it, then the State Department would love to talk to you and you can quit your job right away too.

        Pakistan have never attacked Afghanistan but Pakistan had helped these Afghans to fight against the Soviets. Talibans were never called terrorists. They had never attacked anyone before. America had attacked them first and they are fighting back to take their country back just the way they did against the Soviets. Talibans were never involved in the 9/11 attacks or any other terror networks. It was a complete setup that was used against them so now they are teaching Americans what they already taught the Soviets. Watch movie "Avatar". These people can be potrayed as "navi's"

        Do you f***** know how the taliban came to power in Afghanistan? Do you know the history of Pashtoon manipulation by the Pakis? Did you know what the Taliban did in Afghanistan during their short stay in power? Did you know that the Taliban did not represent the majority of people in Afghanistan. Did you know once the Pakis stop helping the taliban in Afghanistan, life will come back to normalcy in Afghanistan?

        One thing is needed is that Paki pashtoon should rise against Pakistan and get their independence.

      You're so absolutely right. We could never possibly defeat the Talibs. We should have seen that that whole having little to no infrastructure, widespread tribal mentality, rabid close-minded religious fanaticism, and allowing us to attempt to fight a "humane" war against opponents who have no compunction whatsoever about killing their own neighbors; that all these factors were merely part of their impregnable "national defense." Bravo! You really suckered us illiterate Americans in there, Talibs. The Brits should have told us!

      Furthermore, you know how easy it is to keep a rolling guerrilla campaign such as the one the Talibs conduct going and call it not being defeated? If months were to pass where none of those ignorant, close-minded fools managed to kill someone then successfully bombed another school bus, would that count as further evidence of the "invincible" Taliban? You know that guerrilla warfare and terrorism are the go-to tactics for anyone, anywhere, and any time they find themselves hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned?

      Ever stop to wonder why they're always outnumbered? Could it be that(gasp!) the majority of the human populace aren't self-deluded, kill-crazy fanatics who think that the best system of government in the world is built around religious laws laid down a millennium and a half ago by a guy who quite obviously viewed religion as a tool to control the masses?

      P.S. Can any nation capable of turning another nation into one big, radioactive parking lot, if only they so chose, ever truly be said to have "lost" a war? Conversely, do you think that anyone ever wins one? The Taliban's "courageous perseverance" relies on the humanity of their enemies. Remember that.

      America is the steal wealth from 192 countries thatswhy the citizen of the countries was in usa to claim their part.
      America is build on blood of innocent Native Indians. this is not past, racism is present in usa,some year back a picture of a black man holding some food in his hand and the newspaper report that Black man steal food during flood and when a white man had in same position the same news paper reported that a man suriving the flood. this is racism ITS IN UR BLOOD.

    The US should also classify several members of the Pakistani ISI as terrorists, if for nothing else other than the fact that Adm. Mullen specifically stating the top members of the ISI were involved.

    My guess is that Paksitanis in this forum like their government will not believe anything the US says, and will keep feeding us the same malarkey they fed us when Bin Laden was hiding right under their noses.

    Welll, the Pakistanis may think the US government is dumb, but it's the same story once bitten, twice shy.

Is Pakistan helping them? They are of course on their own. They have been fighting from the times of British so they know how to fight. They beat the Soviets too.

    You guys fail to remember that the U.S. is the most powerful country in the world. Plus with nato and israel and potentially even russia on our side then we get to blow up the world if we want. If pakistan went to war with us china would join pakistan, and the us would introduce their latest weapon(s) of doom.

      America is not a super power anymore and NATO also cannot afford to go to more wars because they are also broke now. Wars don't run economies. Osama Bin Laden had worn America out. America wasted trillions of dollars to catch him but he now America has no money left to even pay it's small bills.

        Posted on Nonetheless, others have folwoled this narrative for far longer. Take a look at Frankenstein by Mary Shelly in 1817. I chose this piece because its kind of the anti-Pixar narrative but conveys a similar sentiment in that sentient beings have a personhood. If I were much more literate I could list works so long as my arm. In my brain Im trying to cross reference Ratatouille with Literature, and I maintain coming up with that part in George Orwells 1984 exactly where the rat almost gnaws his face off.

    Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for "horse sex" since 2004, "donkey sex" since 2007, "rape pictures" between 2004 and 2009, "rape sex" since 2004, "child sex" between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, "animal sex" since 2004 and "dog sex" since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms.

    I hope the US finds and kills whoever attacked our building in Afghanistan recently just like we ambushed Bin Ladin. Unlike a lot people commenting I actually support bringing some sense into the heads of ridiculous primitive religious outlaws via a Predator Drone missile. Why are people talking down on American influence all the time? At least we live in the future where we are almost all Gods of our own lives with technology and nice things instead of believing in some Allah given rules that don't really exist. There is no reason not to completely bring Pakistan to it's knees for their continued incompetence and double-dealing tactics. We have the power but we are too nice to use it. I don't care at all what the Muslim world thinks. All of your backward mindless holy garbage is really the root of all our problems anyway isn't it? Besides "No war for oil" is just Muslim-sympathizers excuse to oppose war they know we will win. You don't understand the reality: Iraq was the lowest loss for a modern industrialized country in a war ever. Our influence is everywhere. We cannot lose because you cannot stop our products or our culture from eating away at your small-minded worldview. Our Economy loses entire nations GDP's in a economic downturn. Then we get it back again plus even more a few months later. You cannot stop us, so-called people of book,in your mosques, we are stronger than you. One day when America is Atheist we wont hesitate to care about your God or our version of THE LIE anymore and you will wish you had realized God doesn't exist. Maybe we NUKE both Palestine and Israel and then will you let Americans live in their own country without your pathetic excuse for false hope in an weak invisible nothing called Allah? ATHEIST FRONT

    I am from India and India has been fighting the terrorists for the last 30+ years. It is the only vibrant and successful secular democracy in the whole region.

    It is very natural that India (the largest democracy) and the USA (oldest democracy) share common interests and resolve to fight terriorism.

    It is time for people in this country to understand how and why India was partitioned into India and Pakistan. India chose to be a peace loving and secular democarcy inspite of being predominantly Hindu country and Pakistan choose to be an islamic country. There are huge idealogical differences. Both countries got their independece together but today India is respected for its spiritual, progressive and peace loving nature, on the contrary Pakistan stands isolated. Inspite of being the 4th biggest militart power, India choses the path of peace and universal brotherhood as per Mahatma Gandhi's teachings.

      September 6 commemorates the defense of the country against an Indian attack in 1965. According to our textbooks, it was India which attacked Lahore in the middle of the night, without any provocation, but our army won this war. The reality is that Pakistan started the 1965 war on August 5 by sending soldiers into Kashmir and India retaliated the following day.

      Instead of the soul searching and accountability undertaken by nations like Japan and Germany after devastating wars, our history textbooks explained the separation of East Pakistan in 1971 as an evil design by India which created the guerrilla group Mukhti Bahini in order to seize Pakistani territory. Although we lost half of Pakistan, there was no mention of the gross inequalities which led to the grievances of the Bengalis. Tens of thousands died, millions were displaced, atrocities were committed and the country was rent asunder. But the guilty were never punished.

      The seeds of the distortion of history and the preponderance of religious dogma which were sown decades ago are bearing fruit today. Examples from the curriculum designed by the Federal Ministry of Education abound. The Social Studies textbook for Class 7 says: “European nations have been working during the past three centuries, through conspiracies on naked aggression to subjugate the countries of the Muslim world.”

      Muslim world.”

      14-year-old students of Pakistan Studies are being taught that: “one of the reasons of the downfall of the Muslims in the sub-continent was the lack of the spirit of jihad.”

      13-year-olds are instructed: “In Islam jihad is very important…..The person who offers his life never dies….All the prayers nurture one’s passion of jihad.”

      Thus, a primary and secondary school environment is being created which is nurturing prejudice and extremism. “College and university come much too late; change must begin at the primary and secondary school level,” sums up physicist and lecturer Dr Pervez Hoodbhoy.
      Although religious schools or madrassas in Pakistan are often blamed for breeding extremism, only 6 per cent of children are educated in these schools. Furthermore, research does not confirm the link between madrassa education and terrorism. The cause for the intolerance experienced by Ahmadis, Hindus and Christians lies in public education, structured as it has been to defend Pakistan against some phantom enemy. Non-Muslims are forced to read the same textbooks which contain derogatory remarks against Hindus, e.g being eternal enemies of Muslims. Our myopic educational system discourages questioning and causes ethnic and religious minorities to be viewed with suspicion.

        Oooooooo Jihad now I am scared. Jihad only means struggle in Islam and this struggle can be non violent like between the persons good or bad qualities or armed like the one that has becoming synonymous with it. And the downfall of Muslims in subcontinent in Pakistan is attributed to the lavish life style of Mughals and their lack of unity.

        Thanks. I'm just mad that no one seems to remember history. Going all the way back to Alexander the Great, the lesson we should have learned was, you don't f**k with Afghans on their home soil. Not with conventional military, anyway. They just go and hide out until you leave, and then keep doing the same things they've always done. Greece found that out, Persia found that out, the Mongols found that out, the Turks found that out, the English found that out, the Soviets found that out, all the hard way, and now it's our turn.

So we are supposed to just deem it as a "mystery" and move on???!??? NO! Bombs could have only logically brought down WTC 7, and WTC 1 and WTC 2 came down the exact same way. Jets could not have brought down those buildings alone, the architects of the World Trade Center buildings are on record, interviewed stating the buidings were made to withstand being hit by Boeing 747's. Look it up. Look up buildingwhat .org.....Our government will just declare new enemies when they tire of the old ones, they will claim they killed Bin Laden when and where convenient despite having ZERO PROOF.

      Posted on Some people, acualtly more and more, take care of themselves naturally, and by that I mean by watching what they eat and drink and by using more natural methods like herbs, adjustments, meditation, breathing and exercise. They usually eat less meat or no meat and no fried foods and definitely less processed foods. They also favor alternative therapy methods which unfortunately are usually not covered by our traditional insurance companies. Some people use energy medicine. All of these people are healthier and their costs for maintaining health are much less than the people who follow the mainstream diet of processed foods, sugar drink, allopathic drugs, expensive tests, surgery and eventually chemo and radiation.

I can gurantee you that if the military had been given free reign the war would have been over after about 2-3 years and would have included getting the Pakistani government to surrender and re-organize their thinking too.

    This whole terrorist scare tactic is really getting old.
    When are we going to accept that the so called "terrorists" we label them as are just resistance fighters that are sick of the big guys coming in and messing up their home?
    Sure, all the muslims are terrorists, just like all the Vietnamese were communists.
    Even this page design is laughable. Security Clearance? Give me a break! Can't anyone see this is melodramatic media hogwash!?

    So this means more money will be spent on war. Our economy will suffer. And now we got someone else to blame for all the worlds troubles. This is great, what an entertaining and refreshing article. Thank you for enlightening us. But shouldn't we take break, fix our internal problems, bring home the troops that are being maimed, mentally and physically. This needs to end. America needs to stop looking for excuses to continue a failed war. We chased a man , one man Osama Bin Laden. In exchange for thousands of our troops dying and thousands more becoming injured. Not only were our people hurt by this but even more foreigners died because of our interaction in the middle east. Hundreds of thousands of people there have died, and who knows how many injured. We like to live in ignorance of these facts, in order to stand for a illusion of justice and freedom. Look at our politics. Look at the poor and the rich. This your democracy. Is this something to be proud of. We are nothing more than broken people.

    Pakistan is a bad country, hands down. They are not deserving of trust and never have been. Like all other Muslim countries, they refuse to be responsible for themselves. There is no point in adding any group to a terror list, rather Pakistan itself should be added, and it should be removed from existence. They want money, not peace.

        I wouldn't talk about incompetent military given a country that didn't even see the terrorist leader living in a mansion in one of Pakistan's most affluent cities. Or worse, was harboring him.

        Or a country who screams "sovereignty, sovereignty, sovereignty!" at anyone who tries to help them even while the merciless grip of Sharia law creeps ever closer to Islamabad with each passing day.

        Anything that happens to Pakistan at this point, whether it be from the US or the Taliban or Al Qaeda, they deserve. Their cities will be torn with suicide explosions until there is nothing left, while they still scream of maintaining their "sovereignty" until the very end.

    Clearly, being smarter and quicker than any potential terrorists isn't going be part of the plan. Look forward to repression, loss of privacy and civil rights, arbitrary detention and torture to become more common.

    Here’s an ABSOLUTELY GREAT “MUST WATCH” video from a well known Astrologist PREDICTING way back in 2009 the INEVITABLE GREAT CLASH between AMERICA & PAKISTAN in 2012 leading to the DESTRUCTION OF THE PAKISTANI STATE!!!

    Even though I am myself deeply skeptical about astrological predictions, it’s ASTOUNDING to see how this ASTROLOGIST FORESEES the sequence of events based exclusively on the PAKISTANI PSYCHE of DECIET & GREED, and correlating that with the astrological line up for the Pakistani state using various calendars including the Mayan calendar.. If we look at the EVENTS UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW we can only wonder JUST HOW ACCURATE THE PREDICTIONS SEEM!!

    WATCH MY WORDS...END GAME FOR PAKISTAN..What will happen next on the US-Pak hostilities?

    a) US will designate The Haqqanis as a Terror NW & increase Drone strikes many fold. (I said this before we saw any such news on this!)

    b) Pak will continue torching more US/NATO (coalition) trucks, attacking coalition & Afghan govt. targets in Afghanistan, and killing coalition soldiers through their proxies, causing large scale destruction of coalition property/disrupting supplies/ and causing bodily harm to coalition soldiers & Afghan troops & police.

    c) US will suspend/minimize all coalition supplies through Pak, relying more on alternate routes through Central Asia.

    d) US will cut all military aid to Pakistan and stop all cooperation with Pakistan’s intelligence agencies.

    e) US will expand the battle into Pak by pursuing the terrorists, attacking them through aerial bombardment/artillery strikes.

    f) Public anger in Pakistan against US will explode, causing escalation in attacks on western interests in Pakistan – incl. embassies/5-star hotels frequented by westerners, kidnappings often times covertly by Pak Security agencies to terrorize Americans, even as Pakistani govt. turns a BLIND EYE or pretend they are doing everything in their power to prevent such acts/trace the culprits!.

    g) US will warn Pakistan repeatedly to control the anger in Pak.

    h) Pakistan will demand US to stop all hostilities against Pak first.

    i) Pakistan will see large-scale anarchy with terrorists (Pakistani Taliban) and others joining hands and attacking the Pakistani state causing wide spread destruction/loss of lives, to further their own jihadist goal of capturing the Pakistani state and its WMDs.

    j) Pakistan govt. & army will host an all-party conference & joint session of their legislatures where an unanimous, vociferous demand will be made to initiate all necessary retaliatory action against coalition attacks.

    k) Pakistan will respond by attacking/shooting down our drones/helicopters/artillery barrage into NATO positions in Afghanistan.

    l) Finally leading to a possible escalation into DIRECT US-Pak conflict.

    m) Pak will continue its attacks by sponsoring more devastating terror strikes in US/Europe.

    n) If that continues further US will rope in Israel & India, & DIVIDE PAK, & SEIZE their ISLAMIC BOMB which constitutes the single greatest EXISTENTIAL THREAT to America, Europe, Israel & India (in that order!)!

    o) As a revenge Pakistan will gift away some Low Yield Theater Nuclear bombs that are easier to conceal (in a suit case etc.) to the Jihadists to attack the west.

    p) While most Nuclear material & bombs, will be intercepted by US, European security agencies, some may make their way into the west.

    q) May result in a dirty bomb or even a large scale WMD attack in the US/Europe aided by the local disgruntled Pakistani/ Arab Diaspora.

    r) Add to this events unfolding in the ME, Palestinians not succeeding in having a state of their own due to US veto, Palestinians never giving up their right to destroy Israel, Israeli actions to safeguard their populace & the Jewish character of their nation through actions seen as detrimental to Palestinian interests, Egypt and Jordan abrogating their peace treaties with Israel in response to increasing ant-Semitism in their countries as a result of overthrow of US supported moderate regimes and their take over by radicals such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas; Turkey joining the anti-western and anti-Israeli camp; Iran developing Nuclear weapons and threatening to wipe Israel off the map, and the Saudis downgrading their special relationship with the US in protest against US indifference to Palestinian statehood (with in 1967 borders) and US pressure on the Saudi Royal Family for greater freedoms political, religious, women’s rights etc. in the Kingdom.

    s) Compounded by increasing unrest among Muslim Diaspora in the west, aided by outwardly moderates like CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA finding cause with Islamists world-over by holding US policies responsible for the anger against America all over the Muslim world, incl. Muslims in America & Europe, and fighting for undue Muslim rights at the cost of other Americans in the garb of religious freedoms.

    t) May signal the beginning of large scale organized profiling of Muslims in the west, curbing their immigration.

    u) Potentially the beginning of the real of CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS with as foreseen in several prophecies, and as depicted in the Hollywood movie “THE SEIGE” starring Denzel Washington!!!!

At the moment US is looking how to exit with respect. with all the economic issues US can not continue this war. so India has to fund these Pakistani Taliban by herself.
