    When the American SEAL team “neutralized” Osama Bin Laden and extracted his body from deep inside Pakistani territory, without “waking up” ANY intelligence agency in Pakistan, the world came to appreciate just how good the ISI is in their job!

    • utg001

      when Osama bin Laden hijacked 4 planes on the same day and at the same time, and smashed them into American soil, when American Army couldn’t find any WMD in Iraq, the world came to appreciation just how great the CIA is.
      At least ISI is not so stupid to let its enemies win, got fooled by friends.

      • Andrew Carver

        If the ISI got fooled by friends, that still makes them fools :) And you call them Number 1 ???

        • utg001

          a friend is always more dangerous than an enemy. I was merely referring to CIA being fooled by these mountain dwellers who hijacked 4 planes in a day

        And even if that were true, I wonder which self respecting country in the world would allow a foreign force to fly in for a special forces operation. Does Pakistan have ANY self respect???

  • Yousaf

    The point is, no one wants that Pakistan remain at highest rank in any field. So jealouser will jealous

  • SYed

    ok……….ISI is the best agency in the world………THen what would u all say about the bomb blasts that happen frequently despite of a promising agency. They are only planing to trouble their neighbour -India. Mumbai terrorist attack is a despicable evidence.Open assassination of Prime minister Banazem Buttu ………….is a big shame to SO called ISI. They can’t even fight threats from taliban . I Don’t think ISI desrve rank 1.

    • mattiullah

      So you say after twin tower and all the gunnings in USA, CIA must be ranked 100th????

      First get the knowledge of how agencies are ranked then bark out here!!

  • Steve Elliot

    ISI is not one agency, its a brand name of a legion of 26 independent intelligence agencies in Pakistan. This should explain why they are so effective.

  • Think about it!

    Fine, we get your point! You guys just want to prove you’ll better then us!
    Right! Lets all agree that India is a better country.
    But, I have some things I rely want to clear.
    1. How (ISI, pakistan army, infact all of pakistan) are terrorist?
    Many people die in bomb blast almost everyday is pakistan, all the time. We dont blame it on India! We find a way out to stop it. Then why are Indians blaming Pakistan on the mumbai bombing. If we want to, we would bomb the whole india, not a hotel bro! Our people are strong enough to take bombs and drones, and not cry about it. You guys are still pissing your pants man!
    2. Kashmir!
    Guys our army does not kill people who cant defend, lets say something India does.
    3. We did not do what you did!
    We did not make an international headline by a gang rape. Indians raped a women burattly, making her suffer from astonishing pain. How are you going to defend your country when your men can’t defend their womens from being raped, or maybe they are too busy trying to rape someone too. But the thing is, we respect our women, not rape them!
    4. ISI, Pakistan, army, people
    Look! You have to understand when we tell you, we got nothing to do with you guys, you all are to messed up within yourselfes to make us even think or ruining your country. I dont see people from Israel, Usa or any other country posting something. Indians started it.
    Go do something creative or nice for your people other than rape.

  • jin

    ISI what the hec they even do…crash of soviet union was also due to CIA…….where as RAW whacked Pakistan and created Bangladesh…now another whack will be a creation of Balochistan….also turning the Afghan Govn against Pakistan….where as ISI still weren’t able to do anything significant to India, looks like RAW is more efficient….

  • S

    1971, killing of thousands of poor Bangalis, siachen win of india, breaking pakistan, kargil (lost of credibility and international friends), lal masjid massacre, successful american operation to kill and captuire Usama bin ladin from the heart of pakistan…….wow….Murder of zulfiqar ali Bhutto, Murder of Benazir Bhutto, humiliation of Imran khan in punjab university, no doubt its the best intelligence agency in making its own ppl fool………and his retired chiefs works for malik riaz and the best chief “Pasha” is now a security guard for an arab sheikh…….what a dignity and pride…………

    • truthisban

  • hind

    R u pakistanis mad or what… Ok lets agree once that ISI is number one… Then prove it.. Take away so called “ur Kashmir”

    • india ki ghad mai kashmiri chili

      Kashmir is not property of either of the countries,of course we Kashmiris are tankful to Pakistan and its nationals who stood always with us shoulder to shoulder during our worst times.Day is not faraway when India has to evacuate its huge army from the densely militarized are in the world and the oldest dispute on earth.

    • FChughtai

      ha ha we will do it when time comes. dont under estimate. ISI changes histories when react. We have many other priorities then Kashmir. and Why ISI bother abt Kashmir. who says its urs?

    • Ali

      you are talking about kashmir, match out for whole of india..

  • Hamid Hemani

    Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has reasons to catch an eye of Critics yet TOP on the list, A Grade intelligence of the WORLD.

  • adnan

    indian ‘RAW’ is the most violent and fascist terrorist organization aka “intelligence” agency. it has been instrumental in spreading terrorism in almost all it’s neighbor countries including Sri Lanka, Pakistan (ex-West Pakistan), Bangladesh (ex-East Pakistan), Sikkim etc.


    East Or West …..Inter-Service-Intelligence (ISI) Is The Best.
