BLITZER’S BLOG: Musharraf on why he’s returning to Pakistan

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) - I spoke with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who made it clear that he’s going back to Pakistan at the end of this month, despite authorities’ threat of arrest.

“Yes, indeed,” he told me from Dubai. “I am blessed to go back.”

The conversation reminded me of one I had Benazir Bhutto on September 27, 2007. At the time, she, too, told me she was going back to Pakistan to run for office. There were numerous threats against her life. Her own father had been assassinated.
