The sudden outburst of former Air Force Chief, Kaleem Saadat against Pervaiz Musharraf was no doubt a shocking and the revelations he made very disturbing. But what irritates more is why now? Why didn't he had the guts to stand up and confront Musharraf back when he was the Air Force chief? When people like Kaleem Saadat are getting the benefits perks of their position, their conscience is sound asleep. It is only awakened when they go into retirement or do not get an extension or some compensatory appointment in another position. -FURQANUDDIN KHAN, Lahore, via e-mail, April 23.
