BBC: Is Pakistan spy agency aiding the Taliban?

BBC NEWS | South Asia | Nato to press Pakistan on Taleban: "Nato's commander in Afghanistan is due in Pakistan amid accusations by Afghan politicians that the Pakistani spy agency, ISI, is helping the Taleban.

Gen David Richards, a British officer, is expected to meet President Pervez Musharraf during his visit.

Gen Musharraf has denied claims the ISI is indirectly aiding the Taleban.

Gen Richards has warned that the majority of Afghan people may start to support the Taleban unless their lives improve in the next six months.

He assumed responsibility for the whole of Afghanistan from the US coalition last week.

Nato forces in the south are facing mounting casualties as they engage in fighting with a resurgent Taleban."
