Children of the Taliban

Technorati tags: , , , , ,

On Saturday April 18, author, fellow blogger, and friend, Syed Akbar Ali, posted a story by journalist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, about the Taliban and their expanding influence into Pakistan. The story is based on a 36-minute PBS Frontline episode entitled Pakistan: Children of the Taliban.

This brilliant journalistic piece exposes the extent to which the Taliban will go in order to expand their influence into Pakistan. Walski realizes that there are some folks out there in the Malaysian bloggerhood who actually think what the Taliban are, and what they’re doing, are good and righteous. He hopes that this 4-part program will at least make you reconsider your position.

The following is the PBS program in its entirety, via Metacafe, in four parts.
