The Real News Network's Senior News Analyst, Aijaz Ahmad explores Pervez Musharraf's rise to power after he ousted Nawaz Sharif through a military coup d'etat in 1999. Musharraf nominally continues to be the President of Pakistan; however, pressure is mounting for him to resign with some beginning to discuss impeachment. His listed crimes include taking power unconstitutionally, imposition of martial law, detention of judges of the Supreme Court, and his participation in the US-sponsored "war on terror."
