Albright, Former U.S. Secretary of State

conversations with John Keating, Gro, and De Klerk. Also very
interesting that Musharraf told you when speaking about outside protection
for Bhutto and how it would be an insult to Pakistan. "this is
Pakistan, which is 170 million people. It has got 600,000 military. It has
second line forces, the rangers. There is no question, why should
anyone from outside come in?" Very interesting in light of Bin Laden's capture, etc.
Also contains great insight into why Australia is weathering thefinancial crisis so well.
