I am find it frustrating that it is so difficult to find reliable information about what actually is happening in Pakistan. In American news media (which is not much to speak of) there is the sense that the entire country is about to fall victim to malevolent forces at any minute and that the entire world will implode the instant it does. Maybe this is true. I cannot ignore the facts that there are some pretty terrible things happening over there, but I have to think that in a country of 169 million people – the 6th most populous in the world – there have got to be some different perspectives that aren’t being heard.
