Relations between US and Pakistan have soured so much that the report on the NATO bombing is likely to have little effect. Instead, Pakistanis fret about rumors of a possible military coup.
NATO and US have expressed 'regret' over NATO bombing of Pakistani border post, promising investigation. But full apology seems to be some time away.
Pakistan's chief military spokesman said he didn't believe Pakistan fired on the Americans or that the border post attack could have been inadvertent.
The $800 million in cuts in US aid to Pakistan are the strongest indicator yet of the deteriorating relationship between the two countries.
Recent arrests of military officials suggest that the Pakistani Army is intensifying its hunt for key officers with possible links to outlawed militant outfits such as Hizb ut-Tahrir.
