Is this intentional misdirection and confusion or are they just not cross checking their stories before they are published?

My first instinct is to disregard the first story as it was quoted from Mr. Bush but you never know.

I personally think Pakistan has more to answer for international terrorism than Iran,

they seem to be a hot bed of anger

If a nuclear weapon is ever unleashed, my money is on it being a paki-nuke..

Pakistan itself is a ''extremist''

One look at how they threat their none-islamic minorities says enough.
