Mullen's spokesman confirms existence of secret Zardari 'coup fear' memo
Washington, Nov 17(ANI): Former US Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen's spokesman has confirmed that Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari had sent a secret memo.
A Pakistani businessman had earlier alleged that a senior Pakistani diplomat asked for assistance in getting a message from Zardari to Mullen.
The businessman, Mansoor Ijaz, alleged that Zardari feared a military takeover following the US raid that killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan's Abbottabad city in May and brought unprecedented public scrutiny on Pakistani leaders.
Captain John Kirby, who was Mullen's spokesman until the admiral stepped down earlier this year, said that Mullen initially had no recollection of such a memo, but was later able to track it down.
"Neither the contents of the memo nor the proof of its existence altered or affected in any way the manner in which Admiral Mullen conducted himself in his relationship with Kayani and the Pakistani government," the Dawn quoted Kirby, as saying.
"He did not find it at all credible and took no note of it," he added. (ANI)
