The CIA represents the American people

Oops! a geographic dislocation in the title, sorry!

A letter to US legislators, The News, Pakistan.
Any attacks on our intelligence agencies are seen as an attack on the state and thus the people. The ISI cannot be divorced from the people, and nor can our military. All previous efforts made to interfere in its structure by the US have been negatively viewed as an effort by US to create a wedge between the military and the civilian population. In fact, it strengthens the national resolve to protect our institutions. The past DGs of the ISI should be protected by the state, and not be presented to the world as criminals, since the latter course would go against national pride and security.
