  • Because, hey, that seems reasonable. If you just took over a former Soviet Bloc country in a coup, would you let the old guy get away? That’s what interim leader Roza Otunbayeva is considering. She may charge ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in the deaths of 81 people by soldiers loyal to him. She makes it clear, however, that her country does not want to do it by force.
