I have been watching these programs in which Brig(r) Imtiaz has been lambasting the politicians adnauseium. Some politicians have reciprocated in kind and come back with some truths about the Brigadier himself, as have some army personnel. I don't want to be judgmental on what is being thrown up. But the facts revealed are really very disgusting. It is a shame how some of our so-called leaders and army people have behaved. In the struggle for power, they seem to have gone to the extent of doing anything and everything, including selling us across the border to the enemies of Pakistan. As a poor Pakistani, I can only feel sorry that all this was being swept under the carpet while we remained ignorant. They say, "ignorance is a bliss". I wish we were never told about the extent of their nefarious activities. -AMJAD HABIB MIRZA, Lahore, via e-mail, August 29.
