Vast Majority' of Improvised Explosives in Afghanistan Come From Pakistan

The single biggest threat to our soldiers.

More bad news from the war in Afghanistan.

This summer saw the highest number of Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs) detected or detonated against U.S. soldiers of any three month period in the ten-year-long Afghan war at 5,088. The homemade explosives killed 63 U.S. soldiers and wounded 1,234.

And a 'vast majority'-- 80%-- of those explosives originated in neighboring Pakistan, according to U.S. military commanders quoted by USA Today.

The revelation comes on the heels of former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs,  Admiral Mike Mullen, telling the world that Pakistani intelligence agencies directly supports the infamous Haqqani network.

In addition, the Afghan government has reportedly broken off direct negotiations with the Taliban, and instead Karzai is meeting with Pakistani leadership to discuss Afghan security.

With no end in sight to the war in Afghanistan, all eyes appear to be turning to Pakistan.
