What Are Friends For?

An offer he couldn't refuse. Reuters (09.21.06):
"President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan said that after the September 11 attacks the United States threatened to bomb his country if it did not cooperate with America's war campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Musharraf, in an interview with CBS news magazine show '60 Minutes' that will air Sunday, said the threat came from Assistant Secretary of State Richard Armitage and was given to Musharraf's intelligence director."

Musharraf: US threatened to bomb Pakistan after 9/11

"'The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,' Musharraf said."

Pervez gives us our understatment of the week: "'I think it was a very rude remark.'"

Yeah, no wonder Pervez is just falling all over himself to help George catch Osama.
