And yes, the Bush Administration intends to keep using your money to pay for Musharraf’s tyranny. GWB seems to have his enthusiasm for spreading democracy under firm control; not only hasn’t he issued a public statement, he didn’t even bother to pick up the phone.
Meanwhile, guess who benefits from Musharraf’s being Our Man in Islamabad?
A poll in September by Terror Free Tomorrow, a Washington-based nonprofit group, showed that Osama bin Laden was more popular in Pakistan than General Musharraf, with 46 percent of respondents giving him a “favorable” rating against 38 percent for the president. Ms. Bhutto got a “favorable” rating from 63 percent. The nationwide poll surveyed 1,044 adults and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
