NATO plays down attacks on supplies

NATO played down on Tuesday a recent spate of attacks on depots and convoys on a key Pakistan route, saying supplies were still getting through to its force in strife-torn Afghanistan.

“The Pakistani route is still open, is still safe,” Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola, the head of NATO’s military committee, told reporters.

His remarks came after haulage companies in Pakistan said they had stopped delivering to foreign troops in Afghanistan after a major deterioration in security along the supply route to the Khyber Pass.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola; sir, making this statement, after the destruction of so much NATO property in Pakistan, is like standing there with your hair on fire, and claiming you can't smell the smoke!
