Musharraf and his Facebook friends
President George W Bush may have given his interview in a cramped room that could have passed for a police interrogation cell, but former Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf opted for the library backdrop of the Council on Foreign Relations studio in New York, when I spoke to him today.
He wasn't in the best of moods when I asked him why his country wanted, let alone needed, him back, as he claimed it did - given that he had left just a couple of years ago under a monsoon-sized cloud.
"My countrymen are clamouring for my return," Mr Musharraf told me.
"How do you know?" I asked.
"It's on Facebook... more than 300,000 friends on my page."
The general who came to power with a coup is now contemplating a return to the presidency via Facebook. The marriage of new media and old power. LOL. OMG.
