On the Front Lines of the Info Wars

Remember the recent story of the diplomat who shot two Pakistani "robbers" in Lahore? According to Asia News, it is escalating into something much larger:

London, Feb 20(ANI): Double murder-accused US official Raymond Davis has been found in possession of top-secret CIA documents, which point to him or the feared American Task Force 373 (TF373) operating in the region, providing Al-Qaeda terrorists with "nuclear fissile material" and "biological agents," according to a report.
Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) is warning that the situation on the sub-continent has turned "grave" as it appears that open warfare is about to break out between Pakistan and the United States, The European Union Times reports.
Update, February 25th.

Apparently the CIA has copped to Davis as being the  head of station in Pakistan, and that admission has lessened the tension between the two countries somewhat. No word on the "fissile material" and "biological agents" though. Until I hear otherwise, I will just assume those charges fall in the category of Russian haymaking.
