Malala Yousafzai, born 12 July 1997, is a Pakistani girl from the town of Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan's northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Her family are ethnic Pashtun and Sunni Muslim. On 9 October 2012, while travelling home on a school bus, she was shot in the head by one of two male attackers in an apparent murder attempt. She survived the attack. Malala has subsequently become the object of unprecedented attention and adulation from the Western political class and its CCM such that - from total obscurity and in the space of just 9 months - on her 16th birthday she delivered an address to the Youth Assembly of the United Nations at its HQ in New York and has been nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize.
The Official Narrative of these events is heartwarming in its simplicity; it relates how an innocent child was targeted by a 'wicked terrorist organisation' for daring to campaign for the right to an education for women but, with the support of a loving family and superb British medical treatment, survived to renew her campaign with increased vigour.

The article owes much to the detailed research of Scott Creighton, as evidenced on his 'American Everyman' Blog. Extended parts of it are lifted straight from a series of at least 15 of his posts under the heading "The staged Malala Yousafzai Story" 
The Corresponding Wikipedia 'Malala' article sets out the Official Narrative in commendable detail.  This article attempts to provide some balance to what has become a relentless - near mindless - panegyric, and to outline the less noble motivations and agendas that bear on Malala's elevation to 'living sainthood'. It demonstrates that a child is being unscrupulously used by both her father and the arbiters of Western policy in Afghanistan/Pakistan; the former, likely because there is VERY serious money to be made from the UN 'Universal School Movement' (he is a Charter School owner in Pakistan with national aspirations and has since become UN special envoy for global education); the latter to persuade Western publics that the fight against 'wicked international terrorists' is genuine and must be supported for the sake of living saints like Malala.

The timing of the attack
The timing of the attack on Malala was, to put it at its mildest, fortuitous for Western interests. It was especially fortuitous for the US program of Drone strikes in the Waziristan region; a program that terrorises the entire civilian population, killing and inflicting horrific injuries on vast numbers of them. In the week prior to the attack on Malala, the horrific results of US drone strikes were getting increasing coverage in the Western CCM. Following the attack, this coverage largely disappeared, to be replaced with a sustained outpouring of outrage at the fate of a poor innocent schoolgirl at the hands of the wicked Taliban. 
It is also notable that, within 24 hours of the attack, large numbers of professionally produced posters, with pictures of Malala and with English text, appeared on the streets of major Pakistani cities and were dutifully reproduced and reported on by the entire Western MSM.
Early reports of the shooting
Early reports about the number of shots and severity of the wounds varied considerably. Some stated that Malala was shot twice and suffered brain damage in the attack. Others claimed just one shot and no brain damage. 
....The surgeon who operated on her said a high-velocity bullet, shot from close-range, damaged critical areas of her brain. It is not just Malala's survival which is in question, but what kind of survival. 
Malala was shot twice — once in the head and once in the neck — but her wounds were not life-threatening, according to Tariq Mohammad, a doctor at the main hospital in Mingora. 
Reports also hailed it as a miracle that she was not killed outright in the attack, considering she was shot at such close range. .
