In Northwest Pakistan, there are seven "agencies" that make up the Federally Administered Tribal Areas. You've heard about this volatile area in the news recently, after the Bush Administration used unmanned predator drones to bomb suspected Taliban hideouts – without the permission of the Pakistani government. There are many cultural and political complexities in this region, many of which are difficult to cover in a hard news story. So, today, we bring you a first hand account: a Reporter's Notebook, to provide some personal context and to help us better understand this region and this issue. Afridai Afridi is from the Khyber Agency of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.
