[Happy to report that our good friends in Central Asia have recovered from that devastating hack attack. nCa is back online, ready to kick some more investigative ass! I am glad that you are with us, Tariq.]
We were hacked in late July 2011. It was a thorough job, done by professionals. Now we are back.
Thanks to all the supporters and well wishers.
At the time of hacking we were in the process of starting an investigative-analytic series ‘Smashing Greater Central Asia.’ To provide background information for this series, we posted some of our archive material consisting of investigative reports done by us during the past ten years. It was the archive material that alarmed Uncle Sam and we are happy that our Indian friends got the opportunity to make some money.
Smashing Greater Central Asia actually started soon after hacking. For this I am grateful to my friend Peter Chamberlin, who has already written and published THREE parts of the series at his hugely popular blog http://therearenosunglasses.wordpress.com/
Peter is a complete team in himself: Sharp mind; tremendous analytical skills; ability to grasp the whole picture any time and every time; endless reserves of energy to pursue a point to its logical conclusion; unlimited memory to recall facts and incidents and the rare gift to connect the dots in the right order.
Peter will remain in the pilot seat for Greater Central Asia series. I will contribute whatever I can.
This will be an open-end series because the Evil Empire is writhing like a mortally wounded cobra and things are changing by the day.
Thanks once again to all.
