The Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf’s avowed goal to reach the Waziristan area in Pakistan to protest against US drone attacks was never fulfilled, even as the political party announced it had achieved its goal. What were the goals that the PTI set out to achieve and what role did US peace activists play in it? In this radio report listen to two perspectives: Robert Naiman, travelling with the US peace delegation in D.I. Khan told John Grebe of Greater Boston’s WZBC radio that the peace rally was the way through which real change could begin. The author offered her perspective on a more complex situation in Pakistan. She is also interviewed about her book, Aboard the Democracy Train.
