Taliban in Syria

THERE are reports of the Pakistani Taliban going to Syria. Can anyone tell me how the Pakistani Taliban could leave Pakistan’s soil? Did they have valid Nadra CNICs? Who issued them passports? How could they manage to get visas?

Was there no agency to express any doubt about their identity or if they crossed the border, was there no one to check them from crossing?

How come they reached Syria (from where the breaking news is coming)?

Why are you so concerned about syria. because a ruthless dictator is killing civilians and nobody is ready to help them. If talibans are going there let them go at least you will get rid of them. Unless you are yet another bigot on the Iranian axis.

@F:

LeJ kidnaps innocent Pakistanis.Then they take ransom money and IDs/Passports and then kill the victim. * Money goes to organize further killings and kidnaps for a price as self-supported strong org. ** IDs go to central command of Talibans who in return provide them weapons and Chemicals.

SO SIMPLE
