Some 'Blackwater-type US security contractors are in NWFP for protection of some buildings says senior NWFP minister, Bashir Bilour (as reported on February 7). He appears to be yet another of our ministers who is more loyal to US than our people. The important thing in communication is to hear what is not being said. He did not mention, of course, that operatives of this same Blackwater had opened fire in Nisour Square, a crowded Baghdad intersection on September 16, 2007. Seventeen peoples were killed including women and children. -Z. A. KAZMI, Karachi, February 7.
