A three-member judicial panel in Pakistan found that former Pakistani ambassador to the U.S. Husain Haqqani was behind a memo sent to U.S. officials that sought their help in averting a military coup in Islamabad, according to reports out of Pakistan. Haqqani, who the panel said was "not loyal," could face treason charges as a result of the panel's findings. Haqqani has denied any involvement in what is known as "Memogate," and he tweeted that the panel's findings were "political, not legal." A Pakistani-American businessman, Mansoor Ijaz, claims he delivered the memo from Haqqani to U.S. Adm. Mike Mullen in May 2011, days after Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan.
