Finally the victims step out, albeit on cruches

The US bombings in Pakistan's tribal areas have killed several civilians. The number of militants killed in action is also not known with certainty. International humanitarian agencies are denied access by the nexus of American and Pakistani intelligent agencies.

The past few weeks though have seen a rapid shift in the status quo where at least two victims of American bombings have stepped forward and have filed suits against the CIA, forcing the CIA station head to leave Pakistan.

The rule of law has to prevail in Pakistan. This certainly includes the rights of all, including those who were simply bystanders in Pakistan's tribal areas and have been made victims by both the militants and the American/Pakistani war machine.
