from the New York Times, 2/26/07, p. A7:
Headline: Pakistan Police Detain Opposition Members Ahead of Protests
The police detained hundreds of political opposition members in an attempt to thwart nationwide protests planned for Monday to denounce Gen. Pervez Musharraf’s suspension of the chief justice.
Perhaps this is what the NYPD (and the Bush/Cheney regime, buddies of Musharraf) had in mind in 2003. Or even now.
