Jim Sensenbrenner, who is member of the House Judiciary Committee and member of the Crime, Terror and Homeland Security Sub-Commitee, called on the Pakistan government to “cease its authoritarian operations” in Balochistan. He said, “Americans empathize with Balochistan’s call for self-determination.”

Rep. Sessenbrenner said in his statement, “I support … freedom and liberty for the Baloch people. It is their right to determine their future and how best to protect the rights of Balochistan’s citizens.”

Others who spoke at the event included MEP from Poland Ryszard Czarnecki, Canadian MP Russ Hiebert, Mehran Marri the Balochistan representative at the UNHRC and the EU, and Tarek Fatah, executive director of the newly formed think tank, ‘Balochistan House’.

    I smell a rat here. All this hype on Baluchistan appears to be the handiwork of Indians and Americans combined. I have been to Afghanistan and seen how the Indian consulates there are hard at work to prepare these guys for launching them into Baluchistan and destabilizing Pakistan. “Enemies of the US may survive, its “Friends” stand little chance”.
