    Musharraf reveals near court-martial in 1965

    The newly revealed website of Pakistan's President is inaccessible right now. My guess is some well-meaning attacker brought it down since its down to ping currently.
    $ ping presidentofpakistan.gov.pk
    PING presidentofpakistan.gov.pk ( 56 data bytes

    In any case, the current incumbent reveals that he was nearly court-martialled in 1965 on disciplinary grounds. However outbreak of the 1965 India-Pakistan war meant that he was called up to the battlefield where he apparently did quite fine, won himself a few medals and saved himself from dishonour. While it is not completely clear about what he was accused of, it may have been because he went awol.

    Musharraf prides himself on surviving so many assassination attempts but is oblivious to the fact that another General has survived a few more, and that old chap doesnt even have the support of the US!
