ISLAMABAD - The armed forces would not interfere with the unfolding scenario of selective intelligence leaks by former operatives of the intelligence agencies and would let the sequence run its natural course. This had transpired during an iftar dinner thrown by the army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani for retired four-star generals of the Pakistan Army. Although the ISPR spokesperson was not available despite efforts to seek his comments, sources said the issue was discussed yesterday at Iftar dinner thrown for the old boys club. The guest list, according to sources, included two former Chiefs of Army Staff General (retd) Abdul Waheed Kakar, General (retd) Jehangir Karamat, former Vice Chief of Army Staff Gen KM Arif, former Vice Chief of Army Staff Gen (retd) Yousuf, former Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee and former DG ISI Gen (retd) Ehsan and former VCOAS Gen (retd) Ahsen Saleem Hayat etc. Sources said that the meeting was of the view that Pakistan Army should not get involved in the political debate and decided to let the process of selected leaks by some former intelligence officers past runs their full course. The allegations by several key former intelligence officials, which have been reverberating on the airwaves and print media for the last week and stunning various political leaders, had also prompted the armed forces whether to respond to these selected leaks or not to get involved. The meeting, sources said, also discussed and decided not to give in to the US pressure to expand the arena of the terror war into Pakistan. The generals were of the view that the recent victory in the Malakand Division should be consolidated instead of spreading the forces thin by going into the tribal agencies that border Afghanistan. Analysts say that the high command of our armed forces believe the government needs to review its role in the new US AfPak policy framework. The government is currently continuing a policy of giving amnesty to those erstwhile militants who lay down their arms and pledge that they will not challenge the writ of the state in the future.
