    Report came after the probe into November 25 U.S. Air Force strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers
    Taliban insurgents may be receiving weapons, ammunition and combat equipment from elements in the Pakistan army, a report by the United States military has suggested.Early-morning patrols on November 26 by Afghan and U.S. troops at Maya village in KhasKonar district, east of Kabul, led to the recovery of an estimated 3,000 rounds of Pakistan military-issue rifle rounds packed into bandoleers, two Pakistan military-issue binoculars, and multiple sets of salwar-kameez clothing made from Pakistan military uniforms, the report states.The report, authored by Brigadier-General Stephen Clark, was produced after an investigation into the November 25 U.S. Air Force (USAF) strike, which led to the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers and plunged the troubled relationship between the two countries to an all-time low.The report, the full text of which was released by December-end, focuses mainly on the circumstances that led to the air strike.It also casts light, though, on the deep suspicions the Afghan and U.S. troops harbour on the intentions and affiliations of their ostensible allies across the border in Pakistan.

    Late on the night of November 25, the report says, ground forces sent to comb the area around Maya came under intense fire from a position on the ridgeline running along the border.The USAF flew an F-15E at low altitude, dispensing flares — a move intended, among other things, to signal to the attackers, if they were Pakistani troops, that their target were western forces.

    That Pakistan is full of falsehood is an international acceptance.

    But then these weapons were supplied to ISI by the Amirkhans themselves. There are huge amount of surplus left with ISI. It is unfortunate the weapons and ammunition are unintelligent not to discriminate between the Amirkhans and others.

    Dumb weapons !
