The military top brass is holding intense consultations within its own ranks as well as with some important civilian personalities to craft a response to outside pressure resulting from Osama bin Laden’s killing in a US operation.
Top military officials have been holding marathon meetings in the GHQ discussing the situation. A meeting of corps commanders is also likely to take place in a day or two to deliberate on the event’s fallout.
Lt-Gen Shuja Pasha, the ISI chief, would brief the commanders on the details of the incident and his interaction with the US officials.
Pasha had visited the US a few days before the Abbotabad operation where he had held important meetings with top officials.
It is learnt that Army Chief General Parvez Kayani is regularly holding meetings not only with his military officials including heads of intelligence agencies but also with some civilian foreign policy experts these days.
