Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence ISI is the most powerful spy agency in the world: Ex RAW Chief

NEW DELHI: Former Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief, India’s premier spy agency, has said Pakistan’s spy agency, Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), is the most powerful in the world, a media report said. According to times of India, AS Dulat said: “The most powerful intelligence agency is either KGB which no more exists or ISI, because they are very anonymous. Dulat was addressing a session at the Times Lit Fest in New Delhi. It’s Pakistan’s ISI that’s the most powerful intelligence in the world, says Dulat. “He would have loved to be ISI chief! The autonomy it enjoys is unparalleled,” the report said. When asked to rate RAW against the spy agencies of the rest of the world, the former spy master said, “I believe we’re as good as anybody else. We don’t have technical abilities but are fast catching up.” He added the rider that too much emphasis on IT can make everyone lazy. “There’s no substitute for so to say boots on the ground. With terrorism being really the biggest problem facing the world, the fact remains that it isn’t easy to infiltrate ISIS, he said. Source: Times of India
