The kid claims Baitullah Mehsud / Al Qaeda / the Taliban sent him to kill Bhutto, the day after the US deems Mehsud the patsy.  How convenient.
Spokesman for Mehsud: “It is just a government propaganda,” he said. “We have already clarified that we are not involved in the attack on Benazir Bhutto.”

“Ultimately to them, it’s a game of revolving chairs. As long as they get to be in one, they don’t care who’s in the other one.” Fatima Bhutto said her aunt played this “game of revolving chairs” at huge costs to the Bhutto family, shattering the clan’s unity. In 1996, Fatima Bhutto’s father, Murtaza Bhutto, was gunned down by Pakistani security forces in front of the family compound. His sister, Benazir, was prime minister at the time. His widow blames her sister-in-law for the killing, because Murtaza had become a political rival…. She said her main political goal is to empower Pakistan’s largely disenfranchised masses and end what she calls the perpetual cycle of “dynastic” cronyism.”
