In his new book “The Way of the World,” Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Ron Suskind reveals that Vice President Cheney repeatedly backed Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf over former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated in December. According to Suskind, the State Department strongly backed Bhutto’s return to Pakistan, but Cheney opposed it, considering her “complicated and unpredictable.” Bhutto regretted that Cheney refused to pressure Musharraf to “behave,” and instead kept pressing her to reconcile with him. U.S. intelligence agencies also reportedly intercepted Bhutto’s phone calls “for months,” including a call made to her son.
