Trio Talks Pakistani Politics
Lecturer in Law and Director of the Rule of Law Program Erik Jensen participated in a panel discussion about the current political situation in Pakistan last night at Cubberley Auditorium. He is quoted in The Stanford Daily decrying the lack of knowledge in the media about Pakistan:
“I think we will see a very quiet exit of General Musharraf over the next ten days,” Jensen said. “What we are seeing in Pakistan is something we have never seen — the judiciary standing up and saying no to a military dictator.”
When asked what steps the United States can take to mollify the political situation in Pakistan, Jensen issued a warning to the audience.
“Whatever we do,” he said, “it shouldn’t be what we did in the past.”
