UPDATE: Pervez reconsiders the house arrest. Still, this is some scary shit.
Our pal Pervez Musharraf is determined to silence dissent in Pakistan, so he’s created a “free speech” zone for opposition leader Benazir Bhutto. Police surrounded her house with barbed wire, refused to let her leave, and arrested thousands of her supporters in order to stop a huge protest against martial law.
Meanwhile, back in the US, Bush is saying to himself, “Damn. I wish I’d thought of that.” Not really.
