So We're All Safe Now in Pakistan?

The state of emergency has been lifted and the constitution restored in Pakistan. (Well that's at least one development they've got on us to this point - we don't have the state of emergency).

Musharraf's Minister of Information Nisar Memon (side note here, I wish the US had a "Minister of Information" position - so much more fun to say than "Press Secretary.") said "The caretaker government is under oath to hold free, fair, transparent and impartial elections to put the country back on track." Good news indeed. Although remember those dismissals of judges during the emergency order? Well apparently those decisions get to stand. So close, Memon & Musharraf, so close.

Amazingly enough, even after Musharraf took back his state of emergency decree - people in Pakistan are concerned that the elections might not be free and open.

Wherever on earth do they get such silly ideas?!

It would not surprise me at all if Bush and the GOP have shipped thousands of Diebold employees to Pakistan, at US taxpayer expense, to ensure a Musharraf win.
