Mansoor Ijaz, star witness in memogate case, said on Friday that President Asif Ali Zardari had asked Army Chief General Asfhaq Pervez Kayani on May 2 night to not send F-16 aircraft to bring down US choppers carrying Navy SEALS commandos who killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.

Ijaz to ask memo panel to summon Zardari
As the Presidency and the ISPR have dismissed media reports regarding conversation between President Zardari and Army Chief Gen Kayani Mansoor Ijaz on the night between May 1 and May 2 last year, Mansoor Ijaz is thinking of requesting the Memo Commission to summon the president, record his statement about what had happened on the night when Osama bin Laden was killed, and let him be cross-examined by lawyers.
A section of the press reported a couple of days ago that it was the president who had allowed the Americans to carry out the operation to kill the Al-Qaeda chief in Abbottabad, ordering the country’s defence forces not to react as everything was being done on permission. The F-16s which flew to shoot down the intruding helicopters were called back.(TheNation)
