Musharraf Hangs On

Musharraf has apparently decided he feels safest when the Pakistan Army is run by himself.

Islamists vowed on Sunday to resist plans by Pakistan's President to stay on as head of the army, breaking his pledge to quit the post by the end of the year.
Musharraf, who took power in a bloodless coup in 1999, also promised to tell Pakistanis within days why he had changed his mind.
Is there another twist yet to come?
