Terminal X (abbreviation: TX) was launched on August 14, 2010 as an emerging forum on selected intelligence, geopolitics and defence news based in Pakistan. The website started off as a news aggregate and with time, started publishing exclusive in-house analyses and reports.
Today, TX is as a recognized and registered organization based in Pakistan. Our team of analysts and news monitors provide an alternative Pakistani worldview on situations and events that have a substantive impact on geopolitical and military affairs both domestically and abroad.
With its global headquarters in Lahore (Pakistan), Terminal X offers its audience with original, timely and comprehensive news and analyses on issues of international significance.
Spotlight came to TX when it exposed the hoax attack on Abbottabad by US Navy SEALs after which the website went international with its interview to TVN Chile for their documentary on the raid and recently, an interview to Press TV.
Among the aims of the team at Terminal X is to archive selected news which are considered significant. We maintain a diverse audience which includes serving/retired military and intelligence officials, defence manufacturers, businessmen and media organizations (besides civilians); we are proud to have attracted such a dedicated readership over a short period of time.
