Missing Civilian Deaths in Swat / South Waziristan

Posted in Uncategorized by onpakistan on June 21, 2009

More official government press briefings about casualties, both army and militant, in Swat and South Waziristan. Not a word about any civilian casualties. One would have thought the army could have at the very least made up a number and thrown it into their briefing to increase its credability…They clearly feel they don’t need to – the press does not question their numbers anymore (unlike the beginning of the conflict).
