If only we could bust Bush like this..
According to Human Rights Watch..the Pakistan Attorney General admitted in a phone conversation that the Pakistan elections…to be held this coming Monday..will be rigged.
The idiot AG was on a phone call, picked up a second phone call and didn’t disconnect the first one..which recorded the conversation they heard. Now, the convo is in Pakistan’s native language..so really we have to rely on HRW to tell us what is being said..which btw, you can listen to here, it also includes the translation.
From the HRW writeup:
In an audio recording obtained by Human Rights Watch, Pakistan’s Attorney General Malik Qayyum stated that upcoming parliamentary elections will be “massively rigged,” Human Rights Watch said today.
In the recording, Qayyum appears to be advising an unidentified person on what political party the person should approach to become a candidate in the upcoming parliamentary election, now scheduled for February 18, 2008.
Human Rights Watch said that the recording was made during a phone interview with a member of the media on November 21, 2007. Qayyum, while still on the phone interview, took a call on another telephone and his side of that conversation was recorded. The recording was made the day after Pakistan’s Election Commission announced the schedule for polls. The election was originally planned for January 8 but was postponed after the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Another former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, returned to Pakistan on November 25.
Ain’t that some shit? But it doesn’t surprise me one iota..not in Pakistan and with Musharraf at the helm. Crooked bastard takes our money and lies through his ever-lovin teeth about Al-Qaeda, and what happened to Benazir Bhutto.
