Islamabad, Jan 31: The country deserves to know the truth on the Kargil "fiasco" that led to the deaths of hundreds of Pakistani soldiers and damaged ties with India, said a leading Pakistani daily.




An editorial in the Dawn Wednesday said "...we have understood how Kargil came to be what it really was: a poorly planned and badly executed operation that put hundreds of our soldiers at risk, and not the mujahideen-led jihad initially sold to the nation".

New revelations paint an even bleaker picture of this gamble that Gen Musharraf took as army chief.

"When the head of the ISI's analysis wing at the time (Lt Gen (retd) Shahid Aziz) says he only found out about the operation after it had been launched - and that the same was true for most of the corps commanders and senior army staff, including the head of military operations - his words should prompt yet another look at the Kargil fiasco," said the daily.
