“საქართველოს უსაფრთხოების სამსახურს
საქართველოში რომ იარაღით ვაჭრობის მთელი პოლიგონია გამართული მე მგონი თქვენ ეს ჩემზე კარგად იცით. მე ინგლისურადაც და ქართულადაც პირდაპირ ეთერში გასვლას კი არ უნდა მიშლიდეთ, თქვე კაი ხალხო, ეს კი არ არის ქვეყნისთვის სახიფათო – არამედ უნდა გამოიძიოთ კარგად ის საშიშროება, რომელიც საქართველოსათვის და მთელი მსოფლიოსათვის არსებობს. არალეგალური იარაღის ვაჭრობა რომ იყო გაჩაღებული საქართველოში – ეს ჯერ კიდევ 2009 წელს ამერიკის შეერთებული შტატების სახელმწიფო მდივანმა, ჰილარი კლინტონმა დაწერა თავის წერილში. სამწუხაროა რომ ჩვენი არც წინა, არც ახლანდელი ხელისუფლების მხრიდან ამ წერილს ოფიციალური რეაქცია არ მოჰყვა – და იარაღის მოვაჭრეებს პასუხი ვერ აგებინეს. საქმეს ჩემი გაჩუმება და დაცენზორება კი არ შველის – არამედ აი, ამ ჰილარის კითხვებზე პასუხის გაცემა, რომელიც ჯერ კიდევ სააკაშვილის რეჟიმის დროს დაისვა. ამ კითხვებს უნდა უპასუხოთ აუცილებლად – რატომ არის ის, რომ კეზერას და უდესიანს ვიღაცეები დღევანელ მთავრობაში ხელს აფარებენ?
აი, წაიკითხეთ ჰილარი კლინტონის წერილი კიდევ ერთელ და მერე დავით ანდღულაძის წერილიც. და იმასაც უნდა მიხვდეთ, რომ მარტო ჩემი და ჩემი მეგობრების გაჩუმებით ეს პრობლემა ვერ მოგვარდება. იარაღით უკანონო მოვაჭრეების მაფიამ პასუხი უნდა აგოს. და ამას რომ არ აკეთებთ – ეგ არის პრობლემა, ჩემო ბატონებო.
