Mushy on Osama, Tough on Benazir

Protester torches car near Bhutto's residence
Doncha just love Pakistani President Pervez Musharref, President Bush's favorite strongman?

Taking the prez's suggestion that a head of state can't also be a head of military, Mushy (as Mo Dowd has taken to calling him) has announced that he'll relinquish his gold braided epaulettes and call elections in February . . . or sometime or other, presumably when his security police are finished beating up on lawyers.
While no one was looking, Mushy has been cutting deals left and right with the Taliban, including releasing several Taliban bigs from prison and basically giving the extremist Islamic group carte blanche in the mountainous tribal regions along the Afghan border when Osama bin Laden and other Al Qaeda operatives hang out.
And speaking of security police, some 4,000 of them are hanging around opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's pad making sure she doesn't do anything democratic.

Although shopping or going to the theater is out, Benazir still can talk on the phone, and you know how mouthy gals can be. In an interview with National Public Radio she said the naughtiest thing:
"I was just telling one of the policemen, 'Should you be here after us? Shouldn't you be looking for Osama bin Laden?

"He said, 'We're just doing what we've been told.' "

Pakistan: Bribery in Limbo
Salman Rushdie's take on Pakistan is that you either get a dictatorship and rolling promises of elections or massive corruption with the Bhuttos.
Then it dawned on me that this explained the oddity of continuously seeing hordes of demonstrators dressed in suits, mostly lawyers.
