President George Bush received a list of terrorists that were suspected of hiding in Pakistan. According to Schmidle President Bush expressed confusion when he received the list. Pakistan has been considered by some an American ally for years, thus discovering that most of the terrorists were hiding out in a so-called an American ally was surprising. Former President Bush asked Former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, to look into the situation. After this request Pakistan’s military intelligence agency ,the Inter-Services Intelligence, quickly arrested one of the top terrorist on the list.

Pakistan has been “in many ways” America’s best counterterrorism partner, an official told Schmidle, “nobody had taken more bad guys off the battlefield than the Pakistanis.”* add more examples to how the helped like the surveillance drowns blah blah * However, without disregarding Pakistan’s help at most times, the main issue is that Pakistan has not yet to go against all terrorists. Pakistan has chooses to go against terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban yet continue and support the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqanis, and anti-India jihadis.(Schmidle 2018)  Although Pakistan’s careful selection of terror groups to support was not an unfamiliar notion to the the C.I.A, the loyalty of the Inter-Services Intelligence to groups which the C.IA would find as a breach of trust is the starting foundation to the difficulties in the relationship with Pakistan and the C.

I.A. *add what and where pakistan stopped cooperating a little with the USA* Henceforth, Schmidle and many intelligence officials are demanding a decision to be made from Pakistani agency “It’s frustrating. Our talking points have been identical for the last fifteen years: ‘You need to get tough on terrorism, and you need to close the sanctuaries,’ “(Schmidle 2018).

Seeing that the Pakistani agency is not siding with any side, the Trump administration decided to cut the financial aid given to Pakistan “Donald Trump became the third President to echo that frustration. “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years,” he tweeted. “They have given us nothing but lies & deceit.” …the State Department announced that it was suspending military-equipment deliveries and financial assistance to Pakistan until the country took, in the words of a senior Administration official, “decisive action” against the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network, and other groups that “threaten U.S. interests and U.S.

personnel” in Afghanistan.” (Schmidle 2018)
