In 2007 Condi Rice, Richard Boucher and British diplomat Mark Lyall Grant created a law called NRO to whitewash the illegal wealth of Benazir Bhutto, Asif Zardari and many other Pakistanis to help them come to power. Two years later, in 2009, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has indirectly declared the NRO as valid. The excuse for this is to avoid 'rocking the system'. Musharraf is gone but his NRO will survive. In a theatrical move, he was condemned but his illegal creation - and that of Condi, Boucher and Grant - was preserved. This could prove to be the biggest deception carried out in Pakistan in the name of democracy.
