Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BBC just played an interview with a former Bhutto advisor.  He said something like this:  "Rawalpindi is the most secure city in all of Pakistan.  There are intelligence operatives everywhere."  He said if Rawalpindi wasn't secure enough to hold a political rally, then "there is something very, very wrong with the way Musharraf is running Pakistan."

And this perspective will be a problem for Musharraf -- he's supposed to be the "security and stability" option, right?  But if he can guarantee neither security nor stability....  no surprise he will be blamed, either by people who think he's directly responsible or by those who hold him responsible for the overall security climate in Pakistan.

And on that, they have a point.
