Haqqani network receives protection from ISI, says Frank J Cilluffo, Director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute in the US

WASHINGTON: The Haqqani network, which is blamed for the recent attack on American embassy in Kabul, receives protection and support from the Pakistani spy agency ISI, an influential think-tank has told US lawmakers.
"They receive protection and support from facets of Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI, which continues to drag its feet on taking action against the Haqqanis because they see the network as a useful proxy to expand their influence and establish footholds in Afghanistan," said Frank J Cilluffo, Director of theHomeland Security Policy Institute at the George Washington University.
