Pakistan Outs CIA Chief In Islamabad

Pakistani news agencies have reported what they claim is the name of the CIA station chief in Islamabad, which is the second major outing of a CIA member in the region within six months.  This comes at a time that the diplomatic relationship between Pakistan and the US is quite strained, as it also appears that Pakistan was aware of the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden for quite a while without informing the US.

The Associated Press has confirmed that the name the Pakistani press has released is in fact wrong, but that only slightly lessens the effect of what has occurred, given that the release was given without the press being aware that it was incorrect.  This is likely the result of the military and intelligence agencies attempting to push against the humiliation of the surprise raid that killed Bin Laden, and is expected to further strain the relationship between Washington and Islamabad.

More news as it happens...
