The war on terror” made me do it. That’s the excuse that works for George W. Bush to rationalize his assaults on the rule of law, from arbitrary arrest to torture. So why not try some war-on-terror obfuscation to bail out his president-dictator buddy over in Pakistan?

That’s the card Bush played at his Saturday press conference when he once again celebrated Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf as a strong ally in the war on terrorism: “If you’re the chief operating officer of al-Qaida, you haven’t had a good experience. There has been four or five No. 3s that have been brought to justice one way or the other, and many of those folks thought they had found safe haven in Pakistan. And that would not have happened without President Musharraf honoring his word.”

It appears the United States align themselves with crooked Military Generals of "other" countries. We did that with Fidel Castro, and learned a hard lesson. However., Little Poison Ivy Bush never read any history books on such. So, when GWB went looking for a friend (none here in the USA) to swap stories how to run a country into the ground, he finds one worse.. A Pakistani rebel general.
