Pakistan PM reverses earlier criticism of military

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan's premier on Wednesday reversed his earlier criticism that the country's military had acted unconstitutionally in calling for an investigation of a controversial memo.

"I want to dispel the impression that the military leadership acted unconstitutionally or violated rules," said Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, according to state television.
