Finally the editorials pick up on Musharraf's falsehoods

It seems like Musharraf has been getting a free pass for a long time in the US media, in addition to the free pass he has with the administration. The guy supported terror - cross-border terror in Afghanistan and India. Heck, he nearly started a war with India with his brilliant but mis-guided plan to capture the high ground in Kashmir, across the LOC in 1999.

But, 2001 gave him a pass, as he quickly lined up behind Bush's 'War on Terror'. However, this was in words only. Nothing but unkept promises. No substantial action.

The mainstream media is finally beginning to challenge Musharraf, and the Washington Post editiorial today addresses this quite well.
