Saba Imtiaz (The Express Tribune) Speaks To Jeremy Scahill (The Nation)

The author of Erase and Rewind, spoke to the author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army. The worlds meet.

One thing I regret; is never going on Band Baja when it was active.

A personal lesson for readers of this blog: journalism by those raised in Karachi* does get a person places. Now if it could only change the world.

Kudos Saba, and thank you Jeremy Scahill.

Postscript: Along with this and a reference to Mr Ayaz Amir's column (Behold the Molten Rage of the Honour Armies), this is the first and last time this blog will talk about the annoying meme that is Raymond Davis.

*I changed the the phrase "raised around Clifton" to "raised in Karachi" as Saba Imtiaz contacted me and clarified that she never lived in Clifton. Clifton here is a reference to an area of Karachi where I spent a lot of time, and where a great number of educational institutes of Karachi are located.
