In this Friday, April 25, 2014 photo, banners supporting the army and its Inter-Services Intelligence wing are on display in the streets of Islamabad, Pakistan. The mystery signs arrived in Pakistan as its powerful military faces off with the country’s largest private television station over allegations that its forces were behind a shooting that seriously wounded Hamid Mir, one of its top anchors. But behind the chanting demonstrations and garish loyalty posters lies the deep challenge confronting Pakistan: Where does power lie in this country that’s undergone three military coups since independence, with its army or its nascent civilian government? Banners read, top, "anything negative against army is not acceptable, and bottom, "every voice rising against Pakistan army should be silent." (AP Photo/B.K. Bangash)

This handout photo provided by the US Army, taken in Jan. 2010, shows retired Army Col. Bert Vergez, center, receiving his charter to manage the Project Office for Non-Standard Rotary Wing Aircraft (NSRWA), established in January 2010, from the Program Executive Officer for Aviation, now Maj. Gen. William Crosby, right, and Randy Harkins, former deputy project manager NSRWA. The Justice Department is building a corruption case against a flamboyant Wall Street financier who won millions of dollars in military contracts and then hired the Army officer who steered the money her way. Interviews and documents obtained by The Associated Press portray entrepreneur Lynn Tilton and Col. Bert Vergez as being in unusually close contact for more than a year before Vergez retired from the Army in late 2012. Among the allegations is that Vergez provided Tilton with details about upcoming contracts to give her company, MD Helicopters of Mesa, Ariz., an advantage over the competition. (AP Photo/US Army)
