The NY Times blames Pakistan again….

With a series of half-baked half truths.

As I try to do, I wrote the NYT trying to get them to print our side of the story. As usual, I wont be holding my breath.

Your August 1, 2008 article “Pakistanis Aided Attack in Kabul, U.S. Officials Say” is disappointing because it omits some crucial details. One, that the Pakistani military and intelligence services have themselves been the targets of numerous murderous attacks – indeed, no country has lost more people, military and civilian, to Al Qaeda than Pakistan.

Second, the Pakistani consulate in Herat was attacked at approximately the same time as the Indian Embassy in Kabul.

Finally, India routinely blames Pakistan for every act of violence against its interests; in this case, the charges were levied virtually moments after the attack. Such charges should be seen as they are: a reflexive response on a traditional scapegoat, and no more.
