The new head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency has met outside Washington with senior U.S. intelligence officials after a long gap in such contacts.

Reports of the talks come as both countries look to renew cooperation on battling extremist militants.

Lieutenant General Zaheer ul-Islam is the first ISI chief to visit the United States in a year.

The Inter-Service Public Relations office said Islam was traveling to the United States to meet U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director David Petraeus.

The AFP news agency, quoting sources familiar with Islam's visit, said he went to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, late on August 1.

However, neither the CIA nor Pakistan's embassy in Washington would provide details.

The meeting comes after Islamabad recently reopened routes through Pakistani territory for NATO convoys to supply foreign troops in Afghanistan.

the agenda of the meeting between true friends and allies: CIA and ISA includes but not limited to:
1. establishing eternal friendship between Jews (represented by US government), and peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists (represented by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and similar US-supported democratic countries)
2. elimination (after mild torture) of the enemies of democracy: Christians, Alawites, Shia Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and other Assad loyalists

misread sarcasm as bigotry
label participant but offer nothing

Of course, in the modern world, as propagated by hollywood, anyone who mentions Judaism is a bigot. Not those other gentile religions. One could talk about Muslims all day and not be considered a bigot. Mention Jews though, and whooooooo!

This essential hypocrisy is so regular in our thinking that we never question it.
