巴基斯坦非军方领导人利用美国军队上周击毙奥萨马•本•拉登(Osama bin Laden)维护自己对军方的权威。巴基斯坦建国以来的大部分时间里，一直是军队在掌控统治权。
Pakistan’s civilian leadership has used last week’s killing of Osama bin Laden by US forces to assert its authority over the military, which has ruled the country for most of its history.
周一，巴基斯坦总理优素福•拉扎•吉拉尼(Yousuf Raza Gillani)要求军方高层向议会解释美军突袭本•拉登在阿伯塔巴德藏身地的行动体现出的情报及军事失误。阿伯塔巴德是一座要塞城镇，距离首都伊斯兰堡仅50公里。
Yusuf Raza Gilani, Pakistan’s prime minister, on Monday called on the country’s army chiefs to explain to parliament the intelligence and military failures surrounding the US raid on bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, a garrison town located just 50km from Islamabad, the capital.
Pakistan’s military, its pride wounded by the US operation launched from Afghanistan, has denied that its intelligence services knew bin Laden had taken refuge in a compound close to the country’s most prestigious officers’ training college.
在向议会发表的讲话中，吉拉尼表示，他已要求三军情报局(ISI)局长艾哈迈德•舒亚•帕夏(Ahmed Shuja Pasha)将军和其它军方领导人向议会上下两院简要汇报情况。但这次会议不会向媒体或公众开放。
In an address to parliament, Mr Gilani said he had ordered General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, head of the Inter Services Intelligence agency, and other military leaders to brief both houses of parliament. The session, however, will not be open to the press or public.
Pakistan’s civilian leadership has struggled to bring the army, widely viewed as the country’s most powerful institution, under its authority.
“让军方领导人向议会简要汇报情况是一个极其罕见的举措，”军事历史学家哈桑•阿斯卡里•里兹维(Hasan Askari Rizvi)表示。
“This is a highly rare step to have military leaders come to brief the parliament,” said Hasan Askari Rizvi, a military historian.
“This is the first time that there will be a [military] briefing on a matter directly related to relations between Pakistan and the United States.”
While increasing the pressure on Pakistan’s military, Mr Gilani was also critical of the US . He blamed the US for sponsoring Jihadists during the Cold War, leading to the creation of bin Laden’s al-Qaeda, and also for failing to track bin Laden over the past decade.
“We will not allow our detractors to succeed in offloading their own shortcomings and errors of omission and commission in a blame game that stigmatises Pakistan,” Mr Gilani said, adding that suggestion of army complicity in sheltering bin Laden was “absurd”.
US-Pakistani relations have deteriorated since the attack. In what is viewed as a retaliatory step, Pakistani media revealed the identity of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Islamabad station chief.
