Bush waives law to help Pakistan

Al Jazeera:
Pakistan is set to receive millions of dollars from the US to fight terrorism this year, the White House has said, soon after a new government took power in Islamabad.
George Bush, US president, has exempted Pakistan from a law that restricts funding countries where the legitimate head of state was deposed by a military coup, as in Pakistan.
The White House said on Tuesday that Bush had asked the US congress for about $300m for security assistance in Pakistan.
Bush has granted Pakistan, a major US ally, a waiver on the law since 2003 despite Pervez Musharraf, the country’s president, taking power by force in 1999. (article)
A military dictator, Musharraf, who holds the blessing of Bush and co. The “war on terror” is very unpopular with the Pakistani people, and Musharraf is extrememly unpopular for helping the U.S. out with it. A poll was taken in Pakistan in 2006, I believe, that cracked me up; the people gave Osama Bin Laden a higher approval rating than George W. Bush. LOL. Now you know why the U.S. needs a stooge to lead Pakistan.
