Barack Obama has clearly stated in his book that Pakistan’s intelligence agency carries out conspiracies against India and Afghanistan. (File)

Former US President Barack Obama has claimed that there are many assistants of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations in Pakistan’s army and this fact is no longer hidden from anyone. Obama made this comment in his book ‘A Promised Land’. Obama has also clearly stated in the book that if the operation to kill Osama bin Laden was reported to Pakistan in 2011, this mission would have failed.

Target on ISI
According to Obama, it is an open secret that the Pakistani army has the help of al Qaeda, Taliban and other terrorist organizations. We all know how dangerous this alliance can prove to be. The intelligence agency (ISI) has direct and close ties with Al Qaeda and the Taliban. The ISI has been using these terrorist organizations against India and Afghanistan.

Biden was against the operation to kill Laden
US Seal Commandos killed Osama bin Laden on 2 May 2011 in the city of Abbottabad, Pakistan. Then it was Obama who told the world about this operation on TV in the morning. Obama made a shocking reveal. According to him, the then Vice President Joe Biden (now President Elect) and Defense Minister Robert Gates did not agree with the secret operation planned to kill Laden.

Risky operation
According to Obama, the operation to kill Laden was not easy. There was a lot of risk in that. Because, the Pakistani army had a base in Abbottabad and Laden’s base was very safe. But, we had strong intelligence and plan. I asked my team to prepare the final plan for Red.

Pakistan could not be trusted
Obama wrote – We had options, but there was also risk. Diplomatic relations were also at stake. If this plan was leaked then it could have failed. Therefore, very few people were informed about it. We only thought that Pakistan would not be included in any plan. The intelligence agency there weakens the government of Afghanistan. Conspiracies are made against India.
Obama further writes – The first option was to destroy the compound by air strike. The other option was – the commando team entered there and killed Laden. We chose the second option and decided that the Commandos would return to the hideout soon after the operation. Care will be taken that the Pakistani police or army cannot reach there.

Hillary also suspected
Obama says – Hillary Clinton was then foreign minister. He had said- The ratio of success of this operation is 51-49. Biden also felt that if the mission failed, it would have serious consequences. The defense secretary was also in favor of air strike. After the operation I spoke to many foreign leaders. However, negotiations with Asif Ali Zardari, who was then President of Pakistan, were difficult. However- He congratulated me and reminded me of how his wife Benazir was killed by the terrorists.
