    The new appointments haven't been made public...so we may have to wait a bit longer to be sure. But he would be suitable for the job i guess.

    Wasn't Zahir-ul-Islam a DDG at ISI? Being posted out it seems since Pasha isn't going anywhere. And when was Khalid Rabbani sent to GHQ? I thought he was Commandant at Staff College. Isn't Farrukh Rashid the GOC 17 Div?
