WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is expressing alarm over reports that thousands of political separatists and captured Taliban insurgents have disappeared into the hands of Pakistan’s police and security forces, and that some may have been tortured or killed.

The issue came up in a State Department report to Congress last month that urged Pakistan to address this and other human rights abuses. It threatens to become the latest source of friction in the often tense relationship between the wartime allies.

The concern is over a steady stream of accounts from human rights groups that Pakistan’s security services have rounded up thousands of people over the past decade, mainly in Baluchistan, a vast and restive province far from the fight with the Taliban, and are holding them incommunicado without charges.



I suspect it may be the opposite,, the Pakistanis have released all the Taliban & Al Qaeda prisoners to fight again..

I regrettably would have to agree with your assessment as the isi wants a backup if all hell breaks loose. You'd think they'd have figured it out when the tali's almost overran their country not too long ago...its possible (not likely) they did.
