US Congressional hearing on Balochistan/dismemberment of Pakistan

The subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs held a hearing on Wednesday (2/8/2012) to discuss the target killings and human rights situation in Balochistan and termed it a matter requiring urgent attention.
The hearing was chaired by Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher who recently co-authored an article with Congressman Louie Gohmert expressing support for an independent Balochistan. "Perhaps we should even consider support for a Balochistan carved out of Pakistan to diminish radical power there (in Pakistan)," Rohrabacher wrote in his piece.
