Pak. uses terror as a tool against India: ex-CIA official

Former CIA acting director Michael Morell, in a podcast discussion with Kurt Campbell and Rich Verma on Thursday, alleged that Pakistan is one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Pakistan, obsessed with India as a perceived existential threat, has “created terrorist groups to be a tool” in its struggle against its neighbour, a former top American spymaster has said.

Former CIA acting Director Michael Morell, in a podcast discussion with former Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and former U.S. Ambassador to India Richard Verma on Thursday, alleged that Pakistan is one of the most dangerous countries in the world. “What they don’t realise is that it’s impossible to keep those terrorist groups under control. And that eventually comes back to bite you... I believe that Pakistan... maybe the most dangerous country in the world,” said Mr. Morell, who played a key role in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
