    The Pakistan government is under tremendous pressure from the Obama administration to sack the director general of the Pakistani Inter Services Intelligence, accusing him of playing a double game with the American CIA by providing shelter to Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.

    According to the Pakistani media reports here on Monday, the May 2 Abbottabad fiasco has given an already furious CIA chief Leon Panetta, an ideal opportunity to pin down ISI chief Lt general Shuja Pasha and get him replaced by a more “friendlyâ€￾ ISI chief who would tow Washington’s line.

    To the misfortune of Pasha and the ISI, the Abbottabad fiasco has hit Pakistan at a time when Leon Panetta-led CIA and Gen Pasha-led ISI were already at daggers drawn following Pasha’s insistence to curtail and bring into regular check all CIA operations in Pakistan.

    Meanwhile, Pakistani media have reported what they say is the name of the CIA station chief in Islamabad — the second such potential outing of a sensitive covert operative in six months, and one that comes with tensions running high over the US raid in Pakistan that killed al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

    The name being reported is reportedly incorrect. Still, the publication of any alleged identity of the US spy agency’s top official in this country could be detrimental for Pakistan’s powerful military and intelligence establishment, which was humiliated over the surprise raid on its soil, and could further sour relations between Washington and Islamabad.

    rather you'll see denial coming from Pakistan instead of US. just like drone strike agreement. it's an open secret that Musharraf had an agreement with US administration for these strikes. But still they deny in public that they had any such agreement!! typical!!

    Well.....I do think it will seve any purpose. Leave India aside, evern there is no benefits for USA as well. The twisted ideology is sill there. Merely changing people will not do anything.

    Lastly it might even be helpful to Pakistan. The Pakistanis can now tell atleast one so-called action regarding this whole incidet.
