The New York Times made an incredibly moving videoabout what it’s like to live in Swat under the rule of the Taliban. The barbarism on display is repugnant: dead bodies in the streets as a warning against dissent; radios barking orders prohibiting girl’s education; storekeepers intimidated from selling products to women. Please watch the entire 14-minute video.
