Musharraf has to deal with a radical and extremely dangerous group in his own country. When he has a foreign president this group hates 10 times more then him of course he is going to have to take extraordinary security precautions.
Even freedom of speech does not give you the right to say incite a cite or become a security threat.

Still defending Bush and his friends, looks to me that Mr. Bush is not welcome anywhere in the word.
Musharraf is nothing more than a poppet government in Pakistan thanks to the support of the US.
Yes you are right there we can see it here in the US, the line between protest and security threat has become indistinguishable since Bush is in power.

Also, people are denouncing Musharraf because he took security measures to protect the President of the US in a country with a radical Islamic base?
He was elected in Pakistan
In an attempt to legitimize his presidency and assure its continuance after the approaching restoration of democracy, he held a referendum on April 30, 2002 to extend his presidential term to five years after the October elections. However, the referendum was boycotted by the majority of Pakistani political groupings, which later complained that the elections were heavily rigged, and voter turnout was 30% or below by most estimates.
The hypocrisy is breath taking
