"Dishonorable Alliance In The War On Terror?" is the title of the article published on MSNBC.com.

Judging by the report, investigation turned up 175 objects connected with Akayev's organization. Investigation of Akayev's activities led the FBI to the territory of the United States where the Akayevs maintained contacts with "a certain US citizen known as founder of more than 6,000 American companies used by the underworld for the purposes of clandestine arms deals, traffic, and computer fraud."

The attention of the Uzbek media remained glued to two major issues last week - the forthcoming parliamentary election and cotton harvesting campaign. Most articles in newspapers were centered around them. "The situation with the media in Uzbekistan is absolutely different from that In Russia. So far as I know, some international organizations specialize in criticism of the Uzbek media, viewing local newspapers and TV networks as conduits of the policy of the president and government he controls. Uzbek newspapers, TV networks, and radios may be somewhat restricted in the range of subjects they bring up but, thank God, they are not spoiled by elements of lopsided democracy - democracy of distorting mirrors when everything is permitted even when it collides with common sense and harms interests of society and the state."
