WASHINGTON - CIA will resume its normal operations in Pakistan in return for the US spy agency sharing with the Pakistanis more information "in theory, at least" about what its operatives are doing in the country under new rules agreed by the intelligence chiefs of the two countries, according to The Washington Post. In an article published on Monday, the newspaper, citing US and Pakistani oficials, gave out some more details of the outcome of the recent meeting in Washington between ISI chief Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha and CIA's acting director Michael Morell, saying there was now renewed cooperation between the feuding odd couple of intelligence. David Ignatius, the noted Post columnist and author, wrote, "The token of renewed cooperation: The Pakistanis have approved 87 visas for CIA officers working in the country ... That will bring the agency back toward normal operations in Pakistan, after what both sides say was a low point after the January arrest of CIA contractor Raymond Davis. He was seized in Lahore after killing two Pakistani surveillants; he was released after the CIA agreed to pay more than $2 million in 'blood money' to compensate the families of the two victims. "Under new rules of the road, the CIA in theory, at least will share with the Pakistanis more information about what its operatives are doing in the country. Sources say, for example, that joint CIA-ISI counter-terrorism operations have resumed. "A tricky issue is the fate of Shakil Afridi, a Pakistani doctor who was arrested by the ISI in May for allegedly helping the CIA try to identify DNA of Osama bin Ladens family by running a private vaccination campaign in Abbottabad before the May 2 raid on Bin Ladens compound. U.S. officials are said to have pressed for Afridis release. The Pakistani countered that, because Afridi is a Pashtun who works in Khyber Agency in the tribal areas, certain tribal customs for compensation of victims must first be satisfied. "Another explosive issue is the ISIs alleged role in the torture and death of Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad, whose body was found in May after he had reported critically about the Pakistani militarys failure in preventing al-Qaeda supporters from seizing a naval base in Karachi on May 22. A Pakistani judicial commission, headed by a supreme court judge, is looking into the journalists murder which shocked Pakistanis and Americans alike. "The double-game pattern for the CIA and ISI seems clear enough by now: Work together as if you are allies, but at the same time pursue independent operations as if you are enemies; protest loudly in public when the other side does something you dont like, but keep working together in private because you have no choice and because thats what intelligence agencies do."
