Yeah, This Can't Be Good...

The more or less pro-American military dictator of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf has fired the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, suspended the Constitution, and "pre-emptively arrested" thousands. This is the same Pakistan whose support (aside from the whole "hiding bin Laden" business) is absolutely essential to the War on Terror. So how's that working out for you there, Mr. President? Or should I say, Mr. Vice President, since he's the one who seems to be calling the shots?

And see if this rings chillingly familiar:

His emergency order accused some judges of "working at cross purposes with the executive" and "weakening the government's resolve" to fight terrorism.
