This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.
Gen Musharraf’s book is climbing up the bestseller list, thanks to a book promotion tour funded by taxpayers (American ones, for few Pakistanis pay taxes).
It contains accounts of one high-ranking Pakistani general who concluded that 9/11 was an American conspiracy, another who believed that Pakistan actually won the Kargil war, and was ghostwritten by a person who insinuated on television that the July 7th 2005 bus bombings in London were a Jewish conspiracy.
Those who seek to set the record straight have begun to dispute claims Musharraf makes in his book. The Acorn has a simpler suggestion: bookstores should shelve it under FICTION/FANTASY.
