Welcome to Waziristan

A fascinating journey to the rugged area of Pakistan known as Waziristan. Journalist Declan Walsh discovers the search for Osama Bin Laden, wild predications of capturing the al-Qaeda leader and growing resentment at the behaviour of the American forces.

“Everyone is angry with the Americans,” says Niaz Muhammad, a timber merchant whose house was blasted by five rockets. “When they fight, they say it is for peace. When we fight, we are terrorists.”
