Maureen Dowd: Axis of 'sketchy' allies

RAW STORY
Published: Saturday September 23, 2006

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has slammed the Bush Administration for cozying up to Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, "a dictator who appears to be harboring terrorists, including the one we want most."

"The Pakistan president is a smooth operator, a military dictator cruising around the capital with his elegant wife and enormous security contingent, talking about how much he likes democracy, which he won't yet allow," writes Dowd.

"He may have more respect for checks and balances than Dick Cheney, but that's not saying much," adds Dowd.

"General General, as W. called him in that famous campaign pop quiz, tried to persuade Bush that the shabby truce he recently made with tribal leaders, agreeing that the Pakistani army would stay out of the wild border area next to Afghanistan -- where Osama and other al-Qaida and Taliban members are believed to be hiding -- was really "against" the militants," writes Dowd.
