An interesting tidbit on the FP website a Cheat Sheet (http://www.foreignpolicy.com/story/cms.php?story_id=4782&print=1)by Nicholas Schmidle on Pakistan. Link courtesy of Abu Muqawama.

The laws unique to FATA I think (?) are referred to by the locals over there as the Black Laws. I also think (?) the Black Laws were suspended earlier this year by the new national government of Pakistan, which in my view, if my memory is correct, created and left today a basic vacuum in terms of a standard for law and order.

Your comments and corrections to my thinking appreciated here.
