Bhutto was killed after giving a speech at a rally ( elections were scheduled for January). She was shot in head, neck and chest. The act was susposedly carried out by a suicide attacker, standing close to her.( This of course raises questions about her Security and was it an inside job). I waited most of the morning to see what Bush would say, but after surfing the stations, all I saw was a piece of a pissed off little speech from Bush about "muslim extremists",( that was on FOX news, yet the one on MSNBC said murderous, I wonder if there were 2 different scripts- really odd, on neither station did they show the entire three paragraph statement). I found that very odd as NO ONE has claimed responsibility. I also found it odd the whole speech was not aired, atleast on MSNBC. It is 12:44pm and now some unknown suited man is speaking in front of the Western White House Banner ( which I don't acknowledge this banner as MY White House.) I also found it odd that there has been no Public Statement from Mushareff, not that I have seen or been able to find on the internet.
Yet we are told that Bush Spoke to Musharref for TEN whole minutes. Her Death has been poorly reported, she was shot with a some sort of gun, by a man on a scooter as she stood in her SUV, leaving and she waved goodbye after her rally. She was shot in the neck,head and chest. And then the Scooter Murderer suposedly detonated himself. I do encourage you to watch the film footage on CNN 's website, it clearly shows how pisspoor her security was. More will be posted and updated during the day, and I will add details in Comments.
There also was suposedly an attack on the other Election Candidate this am as well( see Crooks& Liars).
This situation is very serious, and needs to watched and carefully monitored. Mr.Bush should be very careful of touting his "support" for Musharref, as his role or grief has yet to be determined.Little has been said by him since the Emergency Rules were lifted in recent weeks, and since he lifted her House Arrest.What this will do to the Elections in 8 days is also questionable.
As much negative press as this woman has received, this can be said, she did return to her Country to fight for Democracy, and she died attempting to bring democracy back to her country. For the millions of Pakistanis she represented Change and Hope, especially for the Impoverished, Women and Students.And once again this country is in a precarious situation with it's fragile "democracy" very much in danger.
Crooks& Liars and FDL have updates....And there are two wonderful HuffPost tributes you must read, Ariana Huffington's and also Harry Shearer, they both wrote of her as the Woman. Anderson Cooper and Keith Olbermann did amazing shows on her murder and her life tonight. Even Wolf Blitzer did a story on the Email about her death, that is on the CNN site, and he did the email about her being worried about the email to Seigal about the Problems with Musharref.Anoher Source that should be viewed is Booman Tribune by Larry Johnson, he really does an amazing job bringing up some Critical Issues about Musharref's Leadership in relation to this Murder.
As of today December28th,( go to Huff Post) there are Xrays of her susposed Skull fracture, and van photos, they are not in line with the New Fracture Story,There are TWO huge fractures, very high up on the skull, and also do look at the amount of blood in the Van photos.I know it is morbid to look at XRAYS and bloody photos, but it is no worse than a CSI show, we all need to know the truth. And to be honest , this part is now more concerning than the actual killing, for if Mushareff would order such deception over his competitors Death, then it has entered a new Criminal realm.
It is also to be noted that she has three Books that you can read ( I have only read two), but there are all good. And she had signed a Book Deal in September to write another autobiographical one ( that is interesting - we never knew that).
Her books are "Daughter of the East", "Pakistan the Gathering Storm" (1983), and also in 1978 she wrote "Foriegn Policy in Perspective". ( and as a footnote Mushareff has written a book, called "In the Line of Fire", which has gotten scathing reviews).
I encourage everyone to read her words and watch her videos on Youtube, it is important that we remember she was striving to bring Democracy back to her Country, for her Children and all the Children and Women there. For a Muslim Woman she was remarkable in all that she accomplished and all that she endured so much Peril and Pain in her life, and so much Promise she brought to Everyday People of Pakistan.May her Spirit Prevail.
