    I just watched your coverage of the stealth helicopter on TV, describing how the Chinese may now acquire advanced technology from our chopper's wreckage left in the Bin Laden compound. To my amazement, you made the task of reverse engineering the chopper's technology considerably easier by interviewing an expert who pointed out the design features, and why they were significant. I think this is very irresponsible. Getting a story out should never be your only concern. You need to think about the consequences of your actions.

    Actions of Al Qaeda and Taliban have little to do with religion.Western media wrongly or delibrately for propoganda puposes mixes everything with religion.Taking revenge is a deep rooted pashtun culture.There are cases where pashtuns taking revenge 100 of years after actual event.They never forgive those who mess with them.
