Bush In Pakistan

Bush was met with much of the same sort of enthusiasm as he had been in India:

And, it seems, that Bush has brought his concept of freedom and democracy to Pakistan. Remember Bush's "Free Speech Zones*"? Apparently, in Musharraf's Pakistan, you can say whatever you want as long as you say it within the four walls of your house. After all, sparing the sensitive feelings of your visitor is much more important than, say, actual free speech:
Imran Khan, the leader of a small opposition party, was detained by Pakistani police at his Islamabad home ahead of a planned protest Saturday, his spokesman said.

Khan, a former Pakistan cricket captain, was leaving a friend's home after dinner at around 1 a.m. local time when he was served with a detention order, said Akbar S. Babar, a spokesman for Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or Movement for Justice party.

Khan was driven in a convoy of four police vehicles to his home on the banks of a lake near the Pakistani capital, he said.

An official at the local police station said at least 10 police were posted outside Khan's home but he could not confirm his house arrest. The official declined to be named as he wasn't authorized to speak to media.
America--beacon of freedom and hope for the world--as long as they say nice things about us.

*Bush and his minions are unaware that ALL OF AMERICA is a free speech zone. During Bush events, protesters are often herded into fenced enclosures, sometimes miles away, to protest. God forbid that the Boy King should have to see someone actually disagree with him!
