RIP Benazir Bhutto

The assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has dealt a severe blow to U.S. efforts to restore stability and democracy in a turbulent, nuclear-armed Islamic nation .

In the Washington Post, Ahmed Rashid, a Pakistani reporter, (and long-time Musharraf critic) seriously doubts Musharraf's involvement, pointing out that the government is in utter despair over the assasination - presumably because Bhutto was their last chance to stave off disaster. Crooks and Liars has more on this particular matter which amounts to nothing more than a massive blunder on the parts of many.

Out of respect for the dead, there will be no words posted here on the speculation of who will run in Benazir's place. That will be left for another time.
