The west has been willing to overlook his drawbacks. For instance, Musharraf's military record reveals him as a close ally of the Taliban. Early in his career, he acted as military mentor to Pakistan's home-grown jihadi groups. He rose to power in a coup d'état, deposing prime minister Nawaz Sharif in 1999, and has refused to restore democracy. And no one reproaches him about the terrorist plotters at large in the tribal areas of Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province - most likely Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar among them.
