Context

Pakistan’s powerful intelligence agency appears to have benefited the most from the release of a CIA contractor, by forcing the American agency to realize its significance to the US mission in Afghanistan and restricting US activities in Pakistan. CIA contractor Raymond Davis was acquitted of murder charges by a court in Pakistan on Wednesday and freed after “blood money” was paid to the families of the victims. Davis shot dead two men he claimed were trying to steal money from him in Lahore, Pakistan, on 27th January.
