Taliban Points Finger at Xe/Blackwater

CNN reports that Blackwater denies having any contracts in Pakistan.

"We have no contracts in Pakistan," Xe spokeswoman Stacey DeLuke told CNN. "Our competitor holds that WPPS (worldwide personal protection services) contract. ... We've been blamed for all that has gone wrong in Peshawar, none of which is true, since we have absolutely no presence there."

But the Christian Science Monitor reported on Monday that the company "now provides security for a US-backed aid project" in the city of Peshawar.

Peshawar was the site of a deadly market bombing late last month that left 117 people dead. That attack was one of several in which the Taliban explicitly denied involvement. The group also disavowed an attack last Friday on the offices of the ISI, Pakistan's spy agency, which left at least 10 people dead.

The notion that some of Pakistan's terror attacks were "inside jobs" by the Pakistani government and American agencies designed to shore up support for the US-led war on terror has been gaining popularity in Pakistan, not least because some of the attacks in recent years have suggested collusion between the attackers and security forces.
