`Pakistan could be unwitting source of terror attack on US`

If the continued bold terror attacks in Pak remains unchecked, the nuke-armed nation could be an unwitting source of a major terrorist attack on the US with weapons of mass destruction, a report by Cong Comm warned.



Washington: If the continued bold terror
attacks in Pakistan remains unchecked, the nuclear-armed
nation could be an unwitting source of a major terrorist
attack on the US with weapons of mass destruction, a report by
a bi-partisan Congressional Commission warned today.

Noting that Pakistan remains the geographic crossroads
for terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, the report said
that the "increasingly bold attacks on well guarded military,
police and UN targets indicate that the Taliban, al-Qaeda and
other militant groups within Pakistan are a growing threat."

"The current trends, if left unchecked, will increase
the odds that al-Qaeda will successfully develop and use a
biological weapon or a nuclear device against the United
States or its allies," the report by the Commission on the
Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and
Terrorism said.

"Fear of continued turmoil in Pakistan reinforces the
Commission`s concerns that the country could be an unwitting
source of a terrorist attack on the United States—possibly
with weapons of mass destruction," the Commission headed by
former Senator Bob Graham said in its interim report today.

The Commission is a legacy of the Joint Inquiry into
Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the
Terrorist Attacks of 9/11 and the National Commission on
Terrorist Attacks Upon the US (the 9/11 Commission).

It was established by the US Congress to address the
grave threat that the proliferation of weapons of mass
destruction poses to the United States.
