Human Rights Abuses in Pakistan: Is it Really War On Terror?

Here's a video that captures the roots of the widespread anger that led to the current crisis in Pakistan. It documents violations of basic human rights being committed in the name of security that are fueling more resentment and possibly terror. I wonder what has happened to the battle for the hearts and minds of the mainstream Muslim majority to beat the extremists? Is it time acknowledge the current tactics are ill-conceived? Is it time for Musharraf and his US backers to rethink the whole strategy?
