Benazir Bhutto Assassinated- Bush Too Close to Pervez Musharraf

Posted on 12/28/2007. Filed under: Benazir Bhutto, george w bush, Pervez Musharraf |

Did George Bush’s administration give to much power to Pervez Musharraf and end up causing the death of Benazir Bhutto after talking her into returning to Pakistan? This like many other questions about the Bush regime’s foreign policy will probably never be answered and Shrub will once again not be held accountable for his many mistakes.

Bhutto Assassination Ignites Disarray

RAWALPINDI, PakistanBenazir Bhutto, the Pakistani opposition leader and twice-serving prime minister, was assassinated Thursday evening as she left a political rally here, a scene of fiery carnage that plunged Pakistan deeper into political turmoil and ignited widespread violence by her enraged supporters.

Ms. Bhutto, 54, was shot in the neck or head, according to differing accounts, as she stood in the open sunroof of a car and waved to crowds. Seconds later a suicide attacker detonated his bomb, damaging one of the cars in her motorcade, killing more than 20 people and wounding 50, the Interior Ministry said.

News of her death sent angry protesters swarming the emergency ward of the nearby hospital, where doctors declared Ms. Bhutto dead at 6:16 p.m. Supporters later jostled to carry her bare wooden coffin as it began its journey to her hometown, Larkana, in southern Pakistan, for burial.
