Pakistan Detainee Raymond Davis Works for CIA Contractor

Raymond Davis was a CIA contractor at the time of his arrest. But the Obama administration was not forthcoming initially and described him as a "diplomat," an implausible denial given the munitions found in his possession - what was the administration hiding? Davis was heavily armed, killed the two Pakistani agents tailing him. His camera's memory card, seized by police, stored photographs of government installations in Pakistan ...  If it was the States, the same evidence would be perceived by the FBI and talk radio nabobs as a prelude to terrorism ...

Davis is a CIA agent, no doubt: Pak intel official

The Times of India | February 22, 2011

LONDON/ISLAMABAD: US official Raymond Davis, arrested on charges of gunning down two men in Lahore, is a CIA agent, a media report said. The Guardian said based on interviews in the US and Pakistan, it can confirm that Davis, a former special forces soldier is employed by the CIA. It quoted a senior Pakistani intelligence official as saying that "it's beyond a shadow of doubt" . This may complicate US efforts to seek the release of Davis, who claims to have fired in self-defence when the two attempted to rob him. The 37-year-old Davis has been charged with murder. He shot at two men who had pulled up in front of his car at a traffic signal on January 25. In Islamabad, Pakistan PM Yousuf Raza Gilani said his government would deal with the matter without compromising national interests. "You should not be worried . There is a responsible government and it is working in the country's interest," he said when asked by reporters about Davis being a CIA operative . Davis was engaged in espionage and surveillance activities and was on a mission when the incident happened, claimed Punjab's law minister Rana Sanaullah. Davis is now lodged in a Lahore jail where additional security forces have been deployed . Obama administration has demanded the release of Davis contending that he is an "administrative and technical official" attached to its Lahore consulate and that he enjoys diplomatic immunity.

    We have no right to celebrate independence because we are still a slave and we take dictations from our lord America for every single issue in the country. As Raymond had allegations of double murdering and his act was strongly condemned by the whole nation, he was set freed. Imagine the intensity of heat and grief on the sad incident that wife of a victim committed suicide out of feelings of helplessness and despair from the justice delivering faction of the society. Religious groups and political parties pushed the families of victim to accept blood money referring it as a shariah law. At last but not least it was proven that money can buy you anything even pardon. It is shame for the whole nation that we have no dignity but compromises in life .we pardoned Raymond Davis for three lives but could not manage a pardon for Aafia for just attempt to attack on Nato officer. Shame, woe and curse many times on all of us for being sold out for dollars and humble slaves of America.
