Weighty Matters

Elders of the Wazir tribe gather in a farmhouse in southern Afghanistan to discuss how to press a grievance with the U.S. military. American troops searching for Osama bin Laden and other al Qaeda fighters had arrested a young Wazir male for allegedly attacking U.S. troops. Since then the elders, who claim the young man is innocent, have heard nothing about the case. As both American and Pakistani troops comb the rugged Afghan-Pakistani border for Islamic militants, the Wazir and other tribes of the famously independent Pashtun peoples in the area can expect no end to conflict. Whose side are they on? The elders must decide as the military continues its manhunt.
