Report: Pakistan Refusing to go after Haqqani Network

This can be considered validation of what Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen said in front of a Senate Armed Services Committee last week. After Mullen called out Pakistani Intelligence (ISI) for working with the Haqqani terror network, which has committed multiple attacks against US interests, including the embassy in Kabul and a truck bomb on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Pakistan's reaction would speak volumes either way. It appears that they have chose INaction when it comes to proving Mullen wrong.

Via Hindustan Times:
Pakistan's military will not take action against a militant group Washington blames for an attack against its embassy in Kabul, despite mounting American pressure to do so, a Pakistani newspaper reported on Monday.

Pakistan's army chief General Ashfaq Kayani met with his top commanders on Sunday in a "special" meeting to discuss the security situation, the military said, as the war of words with the United States escalated.

That emergency meeting came against the backdrop of sharp US allegations that the Pakistani army's powerful spy agency supported the Haqqani militant group Washington blames for the recent attack on its embassy and other targets in Kabul.

The commanders agreed to resist US demands for a Pakistani army offensive in North Waziristan, where the United States believes the Haqqani network is based, the Express Tribune reported, quoting an unnamed military official.
It would appear that Pakistan's bluff has been sufficiently called. If this report is accurate, they're not even willing to go through the motions of fighting Haqqani.
