The letter was also shared by prominent journalist and SAMAA TV anchor Nadeem Malik on his Twitter handle.

Haqqani, who was then serving as Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, was also granted powers to bypass concerned authorities in this regard. Haqqani could only provide information to the Prime Minister’s Office.

Hussain Haqani recently admitted in an article that he had facilitated CIA operatives who had killed globally wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.
