Finally, a solid report on the discussions in Pakistan

The News International deserves credit for a clear explanation of the current state of play (including actual bill language!) concerning the proposal to revive Pakistan's military courts' power to try civilians. One party -- the PPP -- seems to be holding out for the moment; others are on board mostly out of a sense of bowing to the inevitable and with, at least in some cases, heartburn. But heartburn that is not serious enough to impel them to vote No.

Sure looks like we're seeing tail-lights. The George III award stands.
