[F]ormer Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee suggested that after the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the United States should, “have an immediate, very clear monitoring of our border, and particularly to make sure, if there’s any unusual activity of Pakistanis coming into the country. We just need to be very very thorough in looking at every aspect of our own security internally.”Good lord, is there any brown-skinned person these people aren’t scared to death of. Or more precisely, is there any brown-skinned person these people don’t want us to be scared of? Odd how the rest of the world didn’t become wary of Americans and go on lockdown after Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, James Earl Ray, Timothy McVeigh, and Eric Rudolf committed their various acts of assassination and domestic terrorism.
Huckabee also apparently thinks Afghanistan is to the east of Pakistan. Maybe he also thinks the U.S. is on Pakistan’s western border and hence the need to be on the lookout for Pakistanis.
