The WP: Musharraf is a Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

It is not often that newspapers call a spade a ‘bloody shovel’, but the Washington Post just did that today. In an editorial titled ‘Gen. Musharraf 's Lies’ it boldly called Musharraf a barefaced liar.

Our Commando-in Chief can only grit his teeth in the face of damning proof of his mendacity. After making his infamous Neanderthalic comments, during a
Washington Post interview, insinuating that some Pakistani women are in search of getting raped to make money and obtain Canadian visas, he was daft enough to subsequently deny it.

The Commando-in Chief actually went on
record to say:

"Let me say with total sincerity that I never said that, and it has been misquoted”
"These are not my words, and I would go to the extent of saying I am not so silly and stupid to make comments of this sort."
He was soon damned by his own words. The Washington Post not only stood by its interview but also put a recording of
Musharraf’s own words on its Web pages. By his very own verbiage Musharraf had torn his own credibility to smithereens and condemned himself to being not only a liar but ‘silly and stupid’ to boot.

Thanks to the Washington Post’s online recording, I am told, downloaded audio CDs of Musharraf’s idiocy are already in circulation in Pakistan for those unable to access the internet.

The Post’s latest editorial has not only accused Musharraf of lying about his 'rape' interview but also about his:

  • ‘Promises to retire from the army or restore democracy’.
  • 'Not [carrying] out the reform of Islamic religious schools that he promised in 2001'.
  • ‘[allowing] the extremist Afghan Taliban movement to base itself in Pakistan's western provinces with virtual impunity'.
  • 'Repeatedly [insisting], almost certainly falsely, that Osama bin Laden is not in Pakistan. All the while he has gone on collecting hundreds of millions of dollars in aid each year from the Bush administration, which accepts his words and ignores most of his actions'.
  • 'Claims to champion a "moderate Islam" that respects the rights of women'.

Musharraf’s problem is that like all dictators he has become used to lying and getting away with it. This time he got his long overdue comeuppance.
