Good Riddance to Musharraf
Despite the rhetoric -- from him as well as the U.S. -- Musharraf was never an ally in the war on al Qaida. Worse, he pretended to be, and stood in the way. A false friend is far worse than an open enemy. We should be glad to be rid of him, as whoever replaces him is much more likely to be open about their opposition to the U.S. -- or offer true support. Finally, he won't be around to undermine our war against al Qaida anymore. If Bush was ever actually fooled by Musharraf, he was a fool indeed.
