Musharraf Heads to… New Mexico? « The Washington Independent
Over at our New Mexico affiliate, David Alire Garcia has a weeeeeeeird catch. Apparently Pervez Musharraf, fresh from ignominy-filled resignation in Pakistan, is checking out the sunnier climes of New Mexico.
According to Shuja Nawaz, a former Pakistani journalist and International Development Agency official, that’s precisely the plan.
“He’s likely… to leave the country and that a possible immediate destination may be Dubai, and then eventually may be New Mexico in the United States,” Nawaz told Margret Warner of PBS’ Newshour, also on Monday.” But this is unconfirmed,” he added.
Warner immediately interjected “New Mexico?” somewhat incredulously, but quickly moved on to other subjects surrounding Musharraf’s exit.
Musharraf is friends with Bill Richardson, right?
