this is not at all surprising. Musharraf's "investigators" made the members of the Warren Commission seem like Sherlock Holmes.
What an unconscionably absurd thing to say. She was wildly popular at the time of her assasination, which if you studied the report, would have been prevented by following the simplest of security procedures. Can you imagine if Barack Obama or (George W. Bush for that matter) had no security detail, no secret service or intelligence network to protect them? Do you think the U.S. government would allow such a egregious breech of their basic security, or that they would emerge from such situations unscathed? I suspect not. However, That was precisely what the Pakistani Government did (deliberately apparently), even though they had the full capability to protect Ms. Bhutto. In essence her death was a wholly preventable tragedy engineered by the deliberate neglect of the Musharraf Regime. If they had followed standard procedures, there is no doubt that Ms. Bhutto would be President of Pakistan today.
Don't be so quick to stereotype Pakistan or Muslims for that matter. Bhutto's gender didn't stop her from having a high-profile political career that spanned 27 years, In which she served as both Prime Minister and Defence Minister. To refer to Pakistan As "The Land of Honor Killings", is like Calling the U.S. the land of the KKK. It isn't very useful to smear a whole country based on the behaviours of a few extremists. If "someone" would've killed her they had 27 years of opportuninities to do it.
Well the United States used to be the land of Jim Crow and the Klan, but thankfully that is gone now. But look at Pakistan now, the Taliban and other terrorist groups control large sectors of the nation imposing Sharia law. She was challenging the power of the extremist. She someone was going to kill her and the lack of Gov't security made it easier for them. But I will not be surprised that the Gov't had something to do with her with death either. --KDP3 (talk) 23:58, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
