Benazir returns to Pakistan

Both of Pakistan's ex-PMs Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif seem to be returning to Pakistan. Bhutto seems to be returning with support from the US State department, and Nawaz Sharif is returning because Bhutto is returning. I guess State wants to replace the Pentagon's guy, Musharraf, with their own.

Benazir Bhutto's last two rules in Pakistan were marked by the utmost venality and corruption. Her return will not help the country, and will be worse than having Musharaf in power (not that I'm a great fan of his either). However, her Harvard degree means she knows how to sweet talk the boys the State department, and the fact that they bought her story reflects on them very poorly.
