Andrew McCarthy nails it

The title says it all: Benazir Bhutto killed by the real Pakistan

I do have a couple of minor qualms, though. McCarthy should have posted other data from the poll he quotes. Such as:

- that 80% of Pakistanis do not want al Qaeda pursuited and
- that 60% want a larger role for sharia law

Another thing is that the article should have been much more general and should have gone more in depth. With the former, it should have explained where does such attitude among the Pakistani population come from and with the latter would come a natural primcipled criticism of the whole fantasy about promoting democracy around the world.

Still, when it comes to establishment politicians, Bush is actually the sane one. Some want the US forcibly deposing Musharaf altogehter.
