NEW YORK-Former ISI chief Lt. Gen (Retd) Hamid Gul has denounced allegations in the leaked US military reports of having links to al Qaeda or Taliban insurgents, saying he is willing to go to US to face any charges. 'Report of my physical involvement with al Qaeda or Taliban in planning attacks on American forces is completely baseless, he was quoted as saying in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. 'I am not against America, but I am opposed to what the American forces are doing in Afghanistan. The ISI denied that Hamid Gul had continued to operate on behalf of the spy agency after officially leaving the organisation two decades ago. 'He hasnt worked for the ISI in any capacity since he left the organisation, Zafar Iqbal, a spokesman for the ISI, was quoted as saying. 'He doesnt have any sanction from the ISI, he added. Hamid Gul, a strong critic of US who served as Director General of ISI from 1986 to 1989, had worked closely with the Central Intelligence Agency in organising a covert war against the former Soviet Union in Afghanistan, the Journal said. 'I am their favourite whipping boy and it is not the first time that such a allegations are made against me, he added. 'It is almost two decades since I am retired from the ISI, but they keep accusing me for everything. Gul said he was prepared to appear before an open American court to defend himself against the allegations. 'I am not afraid of them, but the Americans are afraid of me. He said the US officials were trying to make him a scapegoat to hide their own mistakes. 'The US cannot escape defeat in Afghanistan and it is about time that American officials realise their mistake and pull out from there. He said the leaked US intelligence reports have targeted the Pakistani Army and the ISI, which he said were aligned with the United States.
