Pakistan on the BrinkUnknown - 2009
Pakistan's greatest enemy is no longer India but rather the internal menace of the Taliban, who have reinvented themselves in a bid to take over the country. This program examines the conflict ravaging one of America's key allies in the war on terror. Traveling to Peshawar, an urban gateway to Pakistan's tribal region, the program depicts a city under regular Taliban attack and follows a local journalist deep into Taliban territory. Interviews feature figures on all sides of the conflict-including Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas of the Pakistani military, Samina Ahmed of the International Crisis Group, and Hakimullah Mehsud, a fundamentalist leader who vows to destroy the government for siding with the United States.
