Please see “Will my Books in Swat Survive?” by Ambassador Ahmed in the Huffington Post. This is a terrific piece and a personal one on the Taliban’s recent movements in the Swat region of Pakistan.
Also, Ambassador Ahmed was a guest today on ‘Talk of the Nation’ with host Neal Conan. It was an excellent show that allowed time for an analysis of what is happening and why. I recommend listening if you are interested in the region. Here is the direct link to the audio.
