Freedom's just another word for something we're not quite ready for

Nicholas Kristof at the NY Times makes a fine point: if we're so committed to democracy in the Middle East, why are we not all over Pakinstan's shit for abducting a women's-rights advocate. (You might remember her -- she was the one sentenced by a tribal council to be gang-raped because of something her brother was supposed to have done?) Oh, but Pakistan is our friend. Right. Gotcha.
