Missing In Pakistan

Posted by Dave (The Void) on November 28, 2007

    All my duas and well wishes go to each one of you. You have taken a bold step by making this documentary. I feel shattered just to see how things have changed within few years.

    Today Iraq is third most corrupt government.
    Cities and towns are bombed from the air.
