On a more serious note...

.. about the LeT-IAF story. I would really hate being a newly recruited Muslim in the Indian AIr Force right now. The Times group breaking the story in such a half-baked way is a prime example of irresponsible journalism.

And I wonder how much of an "expose" it was. It was clearly a plant. It is highly likely that the BJP leaked the letter to Times. Notice how prompt they were in summoning a press conference. And even the timing of the leak was interesting. The letter was sent in November last year. It has been leaked now, at a time when people are feeling very insecure and paranoid because of the blasts.
