The world's most wanted terrorist was a block away from the army garrison. This incident is not the first time the Pakistan Army has made claims that strained credulity.
Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. Two guys cost a trillion dollars. Is there a better way to spend our money?
For ten years millions of Arabs were held hostage due to the acts of a minority. During this time tens of thousands of lives were lost in senseless violence that only a megalomaniac would be able to justify.
