BENAZIR BHUTTO TO DATE

To date (Sunday, January 06, 2008):

So, she was the daughter of a former Prime Minister of Pakistan who made reportedly many promises he broke. He was accused of corruption, removed in a coup, and executed.

Benazir went to both Harvard and Oxford universities.

In 1988, she became Prime Minister and made deals with the military and supported the Taliban to some degree (it was the inevitable result of U.S. policy that used the Taliban to fight the Soviets — to give them their own Vietnam).

She was Prime Minister when Pakistan was pursuing nuclear weapons.

She was suspected in her own brother's assassination.

Benazir and her husband were accused of corruption and left the country in 1998.

She was accused, along with her husband, of personal enrichment by upwards of 1.5 billion U.S. dollars via kickbacks and other means.

She was tried in Switzerland and found guilty there of several charges which she continued to deny to her death.

In the months leading to Bhutto's return to Pakistan, President Musharraf faced growing pressure by the U.S. to hound the fundamentalist Muslims, who are militantly pro-sharia. Musharraf engaged in more fighting that resulted in a flare up and much civil unrest and many deaths including of women and children (a hallmark of so-called modern warfare — in WWI only 5% of the casualties were civilians, now it's some 75% — so much for pinpoint accuracy of smart, humane weapons).

Bhutto cut a deal with the U.S. President, George W. Bush, to go back to Pakistan where President Musharraf was supposedly to share power with her. She was granted amnesty and all of the old corruption charges against her were dropped.

Apparently, she agreed to Bush's terms, whatever those were. They would have included blaming terrorists and extremists and agreeing to fight them in whatever way the U.S. Empire would want at the time. Of course, fighting whomever the U.S. were to designate would really be about diversions for the sake of getting at more oil and creating more pipelines and transit ports, etc. It would also be about fracturing nations to keep them weak relative to the U.S. and Israel to a lesser degree. (The worldly imperial Anglo-Saxons in England and the United States have no intention of ceding ultimate power to the Jews as a secular or religious nation-state, ever.)

On October 18, 2007, she returned and underwent an attempted assassination in which some 103+ are killed in the bombing.

She was about to turn over to U.S. legislators {Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI)} proof, it is said, of planned vote rigging by the Pakistani government concerning upcoming elections.

On December 27, 2007, she was assassinated along with some twenty other people who died and with the police charged with guarding her backing away before the attack.

Her body didn't undergo an autopsy.

The Pakistani government said she was not shot even though doctors said she had holes in her body.

The scene of her death was reportedly high-pressure washed within hours after the shootings and bombing.

The Pakistani and U.S. government blame "terrorists" and "extremists" (al Qaeda and the Taliban). Well, they have that part of it right only the terrorists and extremists are in the Pakistani and U.S. government who still have connections with both al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Now, all that's needed are witnesses coming forward only to start mysteriously dying and we'll be looking at a classic JFK-style assassination. Where's the "magic bullet"?

It is ironic that Bhutto was going to give her "proof" of vote rigging to Senator Arlen Specter, who came up with the ridiculous magic-bullet theory in the JFK-assassination investigation which theory actually stuck. It is incredibly lame as an excuse or cover-up device. They were advertising that they committed a coup. Also, it was Arlen Specter who helped Senators Schumer and Feinstein squeak Attorney General Mukasey through his nomination hearing in the Senate, who refused to say torture in the form of waterboarding is torture. (Inflicting severe physical or mental pain as a means of punishment or coercion is torture.)

Throughout all of this, it must never be forgotten that one Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh was ordered by Lt. General Mahmood Ahmed, chief of the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) [Pakistan's CIA] to wire $100,000 USD into Mohammed Atta's bank account. Atta was allegedly one of the nineteen suicide attackers on 9/11.

October 7, 2001: ISI Director Replaced at US Urging; Role in Funding 9/11 Plot Is One Explanation

ISI Director Lt. Gen. Mahmood Ahmed is replaced in the face of US pressure after links are discovered between him, Saeed Sheikh, and the funding of the 9/11 attacks. Mahmood instructed Saeed to transfer $100,000 into hijacker Mohamed Atta's bank account prior to 9/11. This is according to Indian intelligence, which claims the FBI has privately confirmed the story. [Press Trust of India, 10/8/2001; Times of India, 10/9/2001; India Today, 10/15/2001; Daily Excelsior (Jammu), 10/18/2001] The story is not widely reported in Western countries, though it makes the Wall Street Journal. [Australian, 10/10/2001; Agence France-Presse, 10/10/2001; Wall Street Journal, 10/10/2001] It is reported in Pakistan as well. [Dawn (Karachi), 10/8/2001] The Northern Alliance also repeats the claim in late October. [Federal News Service, 10/31/2001] In Western countries, the usual explanation is that Mahmood is fired for being too close to the Taliban. [London Times, 10/9/2001; Guardian, 10/9/2001] The Times of India reports that Indian intelligence helped the FBI discover the link, and says, "A direct link between the ISI and the WTC attack could have enormous repercussions.
