Default Militants from Afghanistan Attack Boy Scouts in Chitral

It is not only because of the Lowari Tunnel that Chitralis favor
Musharraf. Musharraf has been the only Pakistan leader willing to take
a stand and fight the militants invading from Afghanistan and taking
over places like Swat. This is the reason why the Taliban has vowed to
kill Musharraf. He would have to be crazy to show up at a kangaroo
court date under these circumstances.
On August 27, 2011, militants from Nuristan attacked Chitral Scouts
posts at Dameel Nisar, Bodebar and Mirkani and killed 40 Boy Scouts.
It is perhaps because of incidents like this that drone attacks are
justified. The Pakistan Army does not have the quick response
capability and perhaps not the will to respond to these attacks

Here is a video about this. However, I understand that this just shows
parts of a video produced by the Taliban itself that has been deleted
and we are not allowed to see:
