Well, damn.

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated.

There doesn’t seem to be a quicker way to get killed in this world than to speak even a little bit of sense.

Regardless of whether or not he had anything to do with it, Musharraf is getting the blame. If this is Al Qaida’s doing, it’s an interesting move- do they anticipate Musharraf will crack down harder, or fall, setting up Nawaz Sharif to take over? If it was Musharraf’s doing, does he think this will shatter the opposition?

One thought on “Well, damn.

  1. Of course Musharraf did it! he turned pakistan into a police state didn’t he? and Bhutto was one of the only ones to stand up to him. But he’s an idiot—if anything this assasination has turned Benazir Bhutto into a martyr, and strengthened the opposition rather than destroy it.
