Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said Tuesday the state is reopening talks with a Pakistani fertilizer producer after U.S. defense officials attested that the company has taken steps to ensure its product will not help Taliban bombmakers in Afghanistan kill Americans.
The Army general who commanded the war against homemade bombs that have killed and maimed thousands of Americans in Afghanistan has left the Pentagon knowing he scored a major victory.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has suspended a deal to finance an in-state fertilizer plant to be built by a Pakistani conglomerate that the Pentagon has criticized for refusing to take steps to stop the flow of materials to makers of bombs that kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
The Pakistani corporation that has refused the Pentagon's urgent appeals to control the flow of explosive materials to bomb-makers who kill U.S. troops is expanding its fertilizer manufacturing into the United States.
The July 8 roadside explosion that killed six Army soldiers in Afghanistan has analysts worried that the Taliban are turning to bigger homemade bombs to take down the best armored U.S. vehicles.
In Afghanistan, a soldier's best friend is no longer a bomb-sniffing dog, but an electronic sensor.
“My assessment is, A.) they are sincere, and, B.) they have taken some actual steps to try to put some control on the free flow of this material,” said Gen. Barbero, who led the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) for more than two years.
retired Gen. Barbero told The Times that Fatima had begun to take action.
