The situation is still very fluid and her supporters are already accusing Musharraf of having his hand in this. Maybe/maybe not. Could be the AQ factions are trying to steer it that way.
No matter what this bodes not well for Pakistan, India, and eventually us. Just how many nukes does Pakistan have, anyway?
Dammit, I really didn't want to wake up to this news!! I know the gal was pushing her luck, especially with that near miss just a couple of months ago. But I did admire her moxie-even if it seemed foolish. I'm just stunned and saddened.
Rest in Peace, Benazir. At least you tried to make a difference.
Shit fixing to hit the fan in 8...7...6...5........
UPDATE: AQ is now claiming the deed.“We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahadeen,”
(This just in from the part of my brain that really shouldn't even be on during these times because it generates scarey thoughts: Al Qada assassinated Massoud 3 days before 9/11 as a signal. Could this be a signal for some serious bad craziness to be unleashed for New Years?
OK, unwrapping the tin foil now...I best be shutting up for now.)
