display_description Pakistan's tribal region has always been only loosely under government control. But since 2001 it has become a hornet's nest of violent extremists, many of who have turned against their own state. Gul chronicles his country's alarming slide into militancy uses accounts by high level Pakistani intelligence and military operatives and extensive firsthand reporting in villages where no American would be safe.
