I am responding on behalf of Jason's comments he made a couple of days ago regarding his statement of ISI's involvment in Mumbai attacks, which I am SURPRISED to see it coming FROM JASON. While it is true of what he said about ISI's history, the fact it was created by the British, and the fact that it was used in various situations to influence politics within Pakistan (such as overthrowing regimes like done with the Benazir and her father before, and General Zia Ul Haq) and outside Pakistan, there is MOUNTAINS of evidence supporting the fact that the culprits were Hindu Zionist extremists who have infiltrated vital government places including the RAW (Research Analysis Wing), the Indian intelligence service. The only reason I have had respect for Bernas is because of the PROVEN FACTS and QUESTIONS that he brought forward in his movie Loose Change. Statements like these COMPLETELY make me lose respect of this guy. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE the ISI was involved in Mumbai attacks, but rather it was being framed to look like it was. Also, proven has been the role of Mossad in this event.
Mr. Bernas, if you are reading, I truly suggest you go over the evidence collected, ESPECIALLY with the EYE WITNESS REPORTS:

The only reason I listen to Alex Jones show and access his site, is to GET THE FACTS, either they are anti-Pakistani or Pro-Pakistani. Even though I'm a Pakistani myself, I favor THE TRUTH more than my country, culture and EVEN MY OWN SELF. Because, I know, for better or for worse, what you don't know can hurt you; and I would rather assess a situation DEVOID of culture, religion, or Patriotism (which Julius Ceaser I believe has said to be a two-edged sword).
Apart from that, I do have another question for Mr. Bernas, if he will so kindly answer (or anyone else). In his Loose Change (ALL OF THEM including Final Cut), he states how the head of the ISI was meeting top brass officials and wired $100,000. Now maybe I missed some things, but the only "evidence" provided of him wiring the money was a NEWS ARTICLE. I believe TRUE EVIDENCE is documents such as wire transfer reciepts, bank statements, taped AUDIO or VIDEO confessions (such as those done in a sting operation). We all know how much truth mainstream media outlets primarily in the US, give; especially with all the cocktail of half-truths or twisted and manipulated versions of the truths. This in no way is to state that I am blindly and/or patriotically supporting ISI. I am simply stating that besides and news article, I did not see anything else. He may, or may NOT have done this (until further evidence is brought forward). Now, as to why that US senator (whose name I've forgotten), wanted the information later "classified" of the meeting between the ISI, I believe I have an answer to that.
Besides aiding in regime changes favorable the US, it has been a source of INFORMATION and LOGISTICAL SUPPORT in that region, primarily during the time against the Soviets, but even before. As we all know the US millitary was on STANDBY shortly prior to 9/11 to invade Afghanistan. And since the ISI is their source of information, such as terrain, how much ammunition needed, culture and virtues, the strength and weaknesses of the future "enemy", etc. etc., AS WELL AS LOGISTICS, he was called there.
Another main question that I have is this. The US government gives away BILLIONS of dollars for defence, black operations, among other things such as rewards for tips to the "most wanted" captures, so $100,000 would be chum change in comparison and they could give to the proposed hijackers who they were also training and financing ANYWAYS with ABSOLUTELY no problems at all. Why would they ask a Third World country (much less and federal organization from that country), which itself relies HEAVILY in foreign aid for financing, for the wire transfer?
In either case, if the bank statements and wire transfer reciepts were obtained and covered by Loose Change and I failed to see that, then I apologize. But IF NOT, then there is still no hard evidence that Mahmoud Abbas did indeed provide financing. However, I do believe he knew of the attacks weeks before they would take place as he was to provide, in my opinion, logistical advice and information, or the proposed invasion of Afghanistan. It's just like saying the Bin Laden family was here meeting with top officials prior to 9/11 and when the event came to pass, they were given priority permission to get out of the country while the rest of the flights were grounded. Were they ALL or SOME of the involved in the attacks? MAYBE, MAYBE NOT. Unless hard evidence is produced to support that they have (like I mentioned, bank statements, reciepts, audio or video confessions, etc. etc.).
I TRULY think, Mr. Bernas should get his facts straight PARTICULARLY on the staged events of MUMBAI.
