Some of these we have seen in print and then quickly hushed up. Some of them are entirely new. The most interesting in my eyes: Nos 10. 13, 18, 24,
In any casr, west press is a hugely censored effort. As far as reporting goes, we in Pak are in clover compared to them.
"The most interesting in my eyes: Nos 10. 13, 18, 24,"
I'd add Nos 3, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 23
(But ALL worth reading as they are important in their own way and specially if you have not come across them...)
All of them merit a thread each and discussed thoroughly till known and not as hushed up news...
I agree, nota, all these are important. as well. Also agree with semirza sahib: give a separate thread to each one or jointly if it's related and let's see if we can make some sense of what the powers that be want to keep under wraps.
Willing to split up the task if you like. Roughly half half.
