WASHINGTON - The Haqqani militant network is a "veritable arm" of Pakistan's powerful intelligence service ISI, which supported the group as it launched a startling attack last week on the US Embassy in Kabul, the top US military officer said on Thursday.

"The Haqqani Network ... acts as a veritable arm of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Agency," Admiral Mike Mullen, who steps down this month as chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a US Senate panel.

"With ISI support, Haqqani operatives planned and conducted (a Sept. 11) truck bomb attack, as well as the assault on our embassy. We also have credible intelligence that they were behind the June 28 attack against the Inter-Continental Hotel in Kabul and a host of other smaller but effective operations."
