Here’s some wonderful news: Poll: Bin Laden tops Musharraf in Pakistan
“We have conducted 23 polls all over the Muslim world, and this is the most disturbing one we have conducted,” said Ken Ballen, the group’s head. “Pakistan is the one Muslim nation that has nuclear weapons, and the people who want to use them against us — like the Taliban and al Qaeda — are more popular there than our allies like Musharraf.”
Fantastic. We’re bogged down in the Iraq quagmire while bin Laden releases taunting tapes and continues on pace to becoming a folk hero. How in the hell did we get to this point?
