Bhutto Assassination Coverage

At 6:15 in this video, Bhutto refers matter-of-factly to “the man who killed Usama bin Laden“.  If this was a mis-statement, she did not correct it, and the interviewer did not call attention to it.

Changes in cause of death, no autopsy, crime scene sprayed with high powered hose, rumors that police abandoned their posts before the shooting and explosion, and more

EXCERPTS: “We in effect helped — helped — precipitate this dynamic that led to her tragic assassination”… “What we have now is a prescription for chaos” … [Musharraf is] “the person to put our money on”

Dec 14: The Other Bhutto (with video PBS FrontLine)
EXCERPT: “There are deep divisions within the Bhutto family. In 1996, Mir Murtaza Bhutto, Benazir’s younger brother and her political opponent, was brutally gunned down just steps from his house in Karachi, while his sister was the prime minister.  The authorities claimed he died in a police shootout with his body guards, but the public — depending on whom you talk to — point fingers at Benazir and her husband Asif ali Zardari.  Benazir Bhutto has publicly denied any involvement in the death of her brother.  Fatima is Murtaza’s eldest daughter. A graduate of Columbia University, the 25-year-old spends her days writing and campaigning against her aunt, who, she says, is “one of the most corrupt leaders the world has seen.”… “Benazir needs to be tried in court for the crimes that she has committed. We do not see eye to eye on anything and we do not subscribe to her distorted version of democracy.”
