Country Known for False Accusations to Charge Man Known to Kill Political Opponents

I can't help but always fall back into my default position which is that since corruption is so rampant in countries like Pakistan that it's equally believable that Musharraf being framed as it is that he actually did it.

So, flip a coin. Heads Musharraf is guilty, tails the ISI made the whole thing up:

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf will be charged next week with the alleged murder of ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, his lawyer said, the latest turn in a political drama that has unfolded since his return from exile in March....

Ahmed Raza Kasuri, Mr. Musharraf's lawyer, said the pending cases against Mr. Musharraf were "false, fabricated and fictitious."

Thanks to Newman.
