Musharraf is NOT Thomas Jefferson
AFL-CIO Democratic Forum: Sparks Finally Fly – Hillary Gets Booed
Though I don’t think Obama entirely understands Musharraf (or maybe he is choosing his words a little too carefully), Dodd and Clinton’s ideas about Musharraf and his regime are hilariously off base. Don’t they know Musharraf’s government backed Al-Qaeda and the Taliban until about Septmeber 12, 2001? Or that the Taliban was created in Pakistan and comprised largely by either Pakistanis themselves or Afghans trained in Pakistan? No, Pakistan should not be unilaterally attacked but it should not be seen as some sort of saving grace who is watchful of American, Afghan, Iraqi or any other interests aside from Pakistani.
