Countries have some National Secrets. These are to be kept secret. Pakistan is a Target of internationl foe inteligence agencies.They want to defame and destabilize Pakistan and to show to the International comunity that Nuclear Assets of Pakistan are not Safe. For this mission,different people including Journalist are being paid and used. I will request all my fellow Pakistanies,not to become traiters.Don't play in their hands. I have sympathies with Saleem Shehzad and his family. Let the commission decide,who was the killer. LONG LIVE PAKISTAN
