Pakistani President Musharraf rumored to step down in the next 72 hours

Friday, August 15, 2008

Some are calling it the end of the Musharaf era ... reports today say Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf will step down in the next 72 hours rather than face impeachment. It's been a rapid descent for the man who once ruled a critical ally in the US's war on terror has lost political backing not only from civilian allies but more importantly from the powerful military that he led for nearly a decade. Musharraf's formerly staunch US supporters are now according to reports quietly urging him to go with dignity.
