Story localizes Pakistani political issue

I thought this story in the New York Times was an interesting attempt to localize the issues in Pakistan's Swat region to New York.

It tells the story of Pakistani immigrants living in the U.S. who are finding that their families back in Pakistan are facing increased scrutiny and sometimes violence from Taliban sources who are convinced that the immigrants are U.S. sympathizers and the family members are spies.
