The BBC says that a leaked NATO report "fully exposes" the intimate relationship between the Taliban and Pakistan's internal security services. According to the correspondent who has seen the report, interviews with captured Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters say that Islamabad "knows everything" about the Taliban and "manipulates" senior Taliban leaders to serve their own interests.
A Pakistani ministry spokesman said the accusations are "ridiculous." NATO would not comment on the report because it's supposed to be classified.
The report also suggests that Afghan civilians are increasingly preferring the Taliban to the government in Kabul, which they see as corrupt and under the influence of Western nations. Once NATO soliders leave the country, it's expected that Afghan security forces, in league with the Taliban will take control of the country.
The report itself says it is "derived directly from insurgents it should be considered informational and not necessarily analytical," meaning a lot of it could just be talk from prisoners who say things their captors want to hear. But it also claims that senior Taliban representatives live in Islamabad, near ISI headquarters, and one fighter is quoted saying, "I can't [expletive] on a tree in Kunar without them [Pakistan] watching."
