I can't pass on commenting on this...
October Present for Dubya?
...The New Republic has learned that Pakistani security officials have been told they must produce HVTs by the election.
HVTs are High Value Targets, which would include Osama bin Laden. Now anyone who finds this surprising is very naive, but it is still something which deserves attention.
Powell pointedly refused to criticize Musharraf for pardoning nuclear physicist A.Q. Khan--who, the previous month, had admitted exporting nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea, and Libya--declaring Khan's transgressions an "internal" Pakistani issue.
So if you give Dubya the election he will forgive damn near everything else. What a dirty fuck. Oh, we will also sell them F-16s if they give us bin Laden.
