Department of Oops

I guess we can classify the news from Pakistan as another diplomatic triumph for Condi, even though she has called it 'regrettable'.

Lucky that Bhutto went to visit her family in Dubai the other day, it saves Musharraf the trouble of booting her out.

I would expect this will mean the end of the 'all out war' in the northern tribal areas, Musharraf is going to need his army in the cities. This is not good news for the US/NATO in Afghanistan.

UPDATE: Benazir Bhutto has returned to Pakistan. Aides say they expect her to be placed under house arrest. Blog Simple admires her courage, we would have stayed in Dubai.
