Musharraf Dumps Hundreds of al Qaeda Operatives Back in Afghanistan

The biggest refugee repatriation operation in the world is underway. It is the cover for Pakistan’s mass-export of al Qaeda operatives back to where they came from – Afghanistan.

The UN refugee agency reports that from 2002, nearly 2.4 million Afghan refugees returned home from Pakistan. This week, General Pervez Musharraf gave the remaining estimated 400,000 until June 30 to leave the country or face expulsion.

Most live along Pakistan’s northwestern border. Islamabad explains its action on the grounds that the tribal belts of North and South Waziristan have been sanctuaries for hundreds of al-Qaeda linked terrorists and the Taliban. The presence of the refugees complicates the hunt for them and adds to Pakistan’s security problems.

There are not enough US troops in Afghanistan to cope with al Qaeda-Taliban returnees from Pakistan Pakistani and authorities claim terrorists are buried among these Afghan refugees and the expulsion order will deport them too.
