The Threatening Storm

No, not that one...the real one, along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. This NPR piece (audio) discusses the growing threat of the "pro-Taliban" militants who've come to rule the border regions and their leader Baitullah Mehsud, a man who commands an army of some twenty thousand fighters, who is a prime suspect in the murder of Benazir Bhutto, who has threatened to attack the United States and Europe in our home countries, and who is presently negotiating a cease-fire with the Pakistan government.
