Benazir Bhutto Assasinated!

Benazir Bhuto 54 former Pakistani prime minister two months after returning from exile to attempt a political comeback assasinated at a campaign rally.

Proof that you cannot prevent a determined assasin from slaying their target, Bhutto was leaving the rally in her bullet proof vehicle asked that the rooftop hatch be opened so she could bid supporters farewell. What may have been a gesture of farewell turned to her ultimate farewell when she leaned her head to the latch several shots were heard and as she sank into her seat a bomb went off besides her vehicle. The explosion killed along with bhutto 20 people and scores of people hurt.

Bhutto's killing came 12 days before the national election, as of this writing no one has claimed responsibility but finger pointing on who is responsble ensues pin pointing on extremist terrorist organizations like Al Queda but supporters are blaming it on Pakistan President Musharaff. Bhutto represents progressive democracy and her election could mean trouble for authoritarian ruler like Musharaff to extremist terrorist organization..

"I have led an unusual life. I have buried a father killed at age 50 and two brothers killed in the prime of their lives," Bhutto wrote in a recent Op-Ed for The Washington Post. "I raised my children as a single mother when my husband was arrested and held for eight years without a conviction -- a hostage to my political career. I made my choice when the mantle of political leadership was thrust upon my shoulders after my father's murder. I did not shrink from responsibility then, and I will not shrink from it now."

Bhutto accused military rouge officials of conspiring with extremist terrorist organizations which they have denied. Her slaying benefits Islamic terrorist thriving in chaos and instability and the rioting has now started as soon as Bhuttos supporters learned of her assasination.

Pakistan is an ally in the war on terror what happens then with the slaying of Bhutto who wanted to work out a power sharing deal with Musharaff? A power sharing that the US is pushing, Bhutto being a more reliable ally in the ongoing war on terror is now gone.
