Faiza Dawood confronts Dir General ISPR on the Bannu strike:

Focus With Faiza 19th November 2008



Comment:

Faiza was a real tigress in this one. Never seen her so angry. Really grilled Major General Athar Abbas, spokesman of the Pakistan Army!

She actually cornered him into admitting that helicopter incursions into Pakistani airspace were a different matter and not acceptable to the Military (which confirms the blog entry below), while unmanned drones strikes quite another which the Government may decide whether to allow or not.

I think that's a fair position on the part of the Army - though the public is hopping mad!

I don't know how far the Military will allow loss of its reputation and goodwill in the Pakistani people's eyes.
