#2 Besoeker, I agree there had to be involvement by some part of the Pakistan military, which must have spread some kind of cover story. It had to be a limited part of the military or other ISI/military elements would have interfered and turned the mission into a worse disaster than the Iranian hostage rescue attempt. There actually must be someone 'trustworthy' in Pakistan - look for the one with a big deposit in their Swiss account at about that time.
