Update: Pakistan's National Security Adviser sacked for admitting about Kasab

Pakistan’s National Security Adviser, Mahmud Ali Durrani has been fired and not given any reason [1]. Earlier in the day, he had admitted that Kasab, the lone terrorist caught for Mumbai Attacks was a Pakistani.. in no uncertain terms!

“I think it probably would be true now that for example [Mohammed Ajmal Kasab] had Pakistani connections,” said Durrani. “So one cannot deny there was zero link with Pakistan. How much, who all was involved, that we have to investigate.”


It seems he was fired for revealing the alleged Pakistani connections to the media without privately consulting the prime minister although the Government has given no reason for his firing!

    Desh, thanks a ton for the great posts. I had wrote once earlier about the spirituality related posts (which probably was a factor why you to wrote the post “Why I am NOT an Atheist” :). And I have been sharing your recent posts (about and since 26/11) with my friends, thanks to Google Reader (which allows me to mail the post).

    I am a heavy user of Google Reader (hope you too are). Any chance of providing full text RSS feeds, which can have ads in them (like that of TechCrunch, for example)? I think most users who use a feed aggregator would prefer full text feeds.

    Some links I came across that seems to suggest full text feeds are better:

    http://www.micropersuasion.com

    I know you would have thought long and hard about this (whether to provide full text feeds or not), but just thought will place my request.

    Irrespective of whether you provide full text feeds or not, I will read your posts. Just that it will be that much more easier for me if full text feed was available.

    PS: Writing this as a comment instead of a mail since I couldn’t easily locate your mail id. My mail id is provided above (please don’t publish it :).
