Bush War On Terror Takes Hit in Pakistan

When President Pervez Musharraf cracked down on PRO-DEMOCRACY citizens in Pakistan, locked up members of the Supreme Court, and slews of attorneys, the Bush administration did nothing, continued to throw their support behind iron fisted Musharraf. That fatally flawed stupidity by Bush's Diplomatic Corp (Condi Rice) is now costing America, will perhaps devastate the war on terror.

Sharif tells US envoys Pakistan will scrutinize tactics against Islamic militants

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - A key figure in Pakistan’s new government told two top U.S. envoys today that his country is "no longer a one-man show" and that President Pervez Musharraf’s strong-arm tactics against Islamic militants will be scrutinized.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s comments came as Musharraf swore in a loyalist of slain opposition leader Benazir Bhutto as the head of a new civilian government.

Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia Richard Boucher arrived in Islamabad early Tuesday, held talks with Sharif, then visited Musharraf at the presidential palace. They made no public comment on the talks. The envoys also met with army chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and the chief of the military’s powerful Inter-Services Intelligence, a U.S. Embassy spokeswoman said.
