Otherwise government would not tolerate any act against the security to people’s lives and property at any cost.

    Many Americans appreciate very much the sacrifices your fighting men are making, especially going after Baitullah Mehsud.

    What is troubling to me, though, is why some Pakistanis continue to blame Israel Mossad or CIA or India for being behind these atrocities.

    I'm not suggesting this is your position. But we watch the YouTubes some of your people are putting up, and some are disappointing.

    Is it just that you have some crazies there as we do here?

    Or is this mindset prevalent?

    Thanks for your time.
