Taliban Bomb ISI HQ in Peshawar

AfPak continued to generate headlines and concerns on Friday morning.

In Peshawar, insurgents set off a huge bomb near the regional HQ of Inter-Services Intelligence. Early reports say that the death toll was above 15, and that dozens were wounded.

In Afghanistan itself, Aljazeera English reports on corruption in that country:

Retired four-star general and former army chief of staff Jack Keane frankly calls the brother of Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai, Ahmad Wali, a “thug” and says that the US is “on to him.”
