    Pakistan Army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani held a round of town-hall style meetings with officers during which he blamed "an insufficient formal response" for the public dismay and despondency following the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. The al qaeda leader was gunned down May 2 by crack US commandos who swooped into Abbottabad city in stealth helicopters and stormed his hideout of five years. Osama's mansion was located a short distance away from the Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul.
    Dawn reported on Tuesday that General Kayani started reaching out to his officers on Monday to put to rest growing unease among the ranks as the US commando raid appears to have dented the military establishment's little questioned image at home.

    The first round of town-hall style meetings were held in Rawalpindi, Kharian and Sialkot garrisons and the meetings focussed on the Abbottabad incident.

    The army chief blamed poor media handling following Osama's killing for the public dejection.

    "Incomplete information and lack of technical details have resulted in speculations and misreporting. Public dismay and despondency has also been aggravated due to an insufficient formal response," a statement quoted Gen Kayani as having said at Monday's meetings.

    The meetings were not open to the media.

    The media report said that the general's quote makes it clear that the army was not happy with the way the political administration had handled the matter in the media.

    It noted that for about 36 hours after the May 2 incident, there was virtually a silence in government circles barring a press release issued by the Foreign Office.

    Gen Kayani spoke of the military's efforts against militancy over the past years and he laid down his strategy to steer the military and intelligence establishment out of the controversy through involvement of the political leadership.

    Last week, the top army officer had conceded an intelligence failure in not being able to detect Osama's presence in Abbottabad. He had then ordered an investigation.

    "The strength of democracy must be put into effect to develop a consensus on important security issues, including the war on terror.

    "Articulation of a national response through parliament, under the circumstances, is the most effective way to let the world know the historic achievements of Pakistan against al qaeda and its terror affiliates," General Kayani was quoted as saying.

    During the three meetings, Gen Kayani is reported to have engaged with the officers to address questions that, a source said, "could have been agitating their minds".

    This is all drama by Kayani who probably has Musharraf style dreams of a coup de tat.

    WOW!!

    Today Kayani has proved that he as shameless as any other pakistani. Blaming GOP for the failure on media part is simply amazing when they themselves failed tp detect an intrusion by Americans.....simply smart!! I had always though the onus of such failures lies with the military and military intelligence, however here it has been proved that GOP is a "Ghanta jisko sabhi bajate hen" i.e everybody in pakistan gets to shoot their failures at GOP....this is heights, now Zardari is expected to man pakistani borders so that these shameless SURRENDERING Sold-out pakistani generals can enjoy their shamefully lavish corrupt lives. I am sure madrasa educated pakistanis would buy this notion and blame GOP for failure to detect intrusion by the SEALS.....simply amazing how pakistan army has created a brain-dead nation full of dumbF&^%$ awam!! Simply amazing!

    P.S: Somebody should ask this Dimwit Kayani who is allowing drone attacks everyday? He will simple answer GOP, and madrasa educated pakistani kids will clap and shout islamic slogans !!

    Over all its very confusing, and neither theory has sufficient backing.

    The another theory that US and pak stuck deal is also not adding up, coz recently US exposed ISI behind 26/11.

    You know what's happening in Pakistan reminds me of how a stage magician swings his hands and arms around diverting the attention of the audience while he does what he wants to create the illusion.

    This is what is happening in Pakistan where people there are using all kinds of diversionary tactics so that they can continue with what they are doing and the real work that is requires in tackling terrorism is brushed under the carpet.

    Sub Nautanki hai.

    Would it really make a difference if General Pasha and Kayani steps down? Even if both were to retire they would still be powerful in Pakistan.

    Sir, till US has use of PA, nothing will change. It will be naive to think that civilians have any power there. They are just "useful idiots" to run the facade of democracy :)
