I Call B*llshit on the Bhutto Assassination

It has scarcely been 24 hours since Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in Pakistan and already my bullshit meter is off the charts. Here is a quick rundown of the conflicting narratives currently fighting for the place of the "Official Conspiracy Theory" (OCT) of the Bhutto assassination.

Earlier today news outlets were running a news story similar to this one:

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/12/27/pakistan.bhutto/index.html

in which the Bhutto assassination was described thusly: "Bhutto died of a gunshot wound to the neck, the Pakistani Interior Ministry said. The attacker then blew himself up. The bomb attack killed at least 22 others, doctors said."

In other words, the gunman and the suicide bomber were the same person, and he blew himself up after the attack to avoid being captured, and also possibly in the hopes of becoming a martyr.

However, currently the big story on the Indian news wires is the eyewitness reports of Bhutto actually being assassinated by two separate snipers firing from a nearby building. As two snipers would tend to indicate some level of coordination and planning, as well as training for how to shoot someone with a sniper rifle from long range, it suggests military involvement, possibly even the involvement of the Pakistani clandestine operations agency, the ISI, which has long and demonstrable ties to both the CIA and the 9/11 attacks (for a quick refresher Mahmoud Ahmed, the head of the ISI, wired $100,000 dollars to Mohammed Atta, the supposed lead hijacker on 9/11, shortly before the attacks.) The sniper reports are spreading throughout the media now:

"Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, 54, was shot at and killed by at least two snipers before a suicide bomb attack on the periphery of her carcade."
http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/south-asia/benazir-bhutto-killed-in-a-sniper-attack-five-bullets-were-fired-on-her-upd...

From the International Herald Tribune: "But witnesses described a sniper firing from a nearby building, raising questions about how well the government had protected her in a usually well-guarded garrison town and fueling speculation that government sympathizers had played a part."
http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/12/28/asia/28pakistan.php

And the Philadelphia Inquirer reports: "Rumors are swirling that the bullet that killed her came from a sniper, and that the suicide bomber was meant to cover his tracks."
http://www.philly.com/inquirer/front_page/20071228_Grief_and_anger_mix_after_a_voice_is_stilled.html

Eager to establish the OCT as quickly as possible, Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan has supposedly claimed responsibility for the attack. Reuters UK is reporting:

"Al Qaeda is the chief suspect in the murder of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto."
http://uk.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUKN

Newsweek already has an article entitled "Almost Certainly Al Qaeda." Sound familiar?
http://www.newsweek.com/id/82153

And CNN is reporting: "The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin Thursday citing an alleged claim of responsibility by al Qaeda for former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination, a DHS official told CNN."
http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/12/27/bhutto.dhs.alqaeda/

However, CNN even admits "The source of the claim was apparently Italian news agency, Adnkronos International (AKI), which said that al Qaeda Afghanistan commander and spokesman Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid had telephoned the agency to make the claim."

Every news outlet reporting on this draws as its source this one supposed claim made to this Italian news agency. But, CNN says, "such a claim has not appeared on radical Islamist Web sites that regularly post such messages from al Qaeda and other militant groups."

So what is happening here? What was the intent of this assassination? Was this meant as the spark that ignites WWIII, much like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand which ignited WWI?

There are rumors swirling that the suicide bomber was meant as a distraction, to provide a reason for Bhutto to get out of the car in order to give the snipers a clear shot, but when she stuck her head out to greet onlookers the snipers took their shot and the suicide bomber was no longer necessary but it was too late.

I don't know what how this assassination was supposed to take place nor do I know what this assassination was meant to cause. I do know that my bullshit meter is now off the charts. In closing, consider this:

When googling the news for bhutto and sniper, on the first page one gets a link to a Washington Post excerpt that reads: "The classic use of a sniper to cut her down as at least one suicide bomber blew up her vehicle bore the hallmarks of a Pakistani suicide squad expertly ..." However, when you click the link to the article, you find that that sentence has been heavily edited to now read: "The attack -- a gunman cut her down before a suicide-bomb explosion blew up her vehicle, early reports suggest -- bore the hallmarks of training by the al-Qaeda terrorists ensconced in northwest Pakistan." Notice how the word sniper has been removed entirely, the key words at least one suicide bomber were changed to the more vague suicide-bomb explosion, and the attacks now bear the hallmarks of al-Qaeda terrorists and not a Pakistani suicide squad.

"If all records told the same tale, then the lie passed into history and became truth."
- George Orwell, 1984

update

Unsurprisingly, it now appears that many police "guarding" Bhutto abandoned their posts just prior to her assassination. Furthermore, no autopsy has been performed, but the doctor who was with her says that she wasn't struck by either bullets or shrapnel but died from a single blunt force trauma to the skull.

Believe

I personally don't believe that many of the allegid suicide bombers are as they are reported. When was the last time that they targeted American forces?

A bomb goes off.... someone was closer than anyone else..... "Suicide Bomber"...

reeeeaaaalllly?

Who's to say otherwise.....

Sure makes Muslims look crazy and driven at all costs to destroy their enemies. All part of the grand theater. We know who truly benefits from an event like this.

Just read between the lines

Words of wisdom

It is gratifying to see others voicing these skepticisms. Destabilizing Pakistan is something the globalists seem to benefit from. One speculation I came across is that we will now hear arguments calling for the conquest of Pakistan in order to seize control of their nukes because the situation is "too unstable". I'm hoping we can get some alternative sources of information out of Pakistan. I believe what the MSM is telling us as much as I believe that Oswald acted along.

Elections canceled.

I just heard on CBC radio that Bhutto supporters are rioting and directing their anger at Musharraf. Pakistani people are claiming that Musharaf's people planned the assassination in order to derail the elections that were scheduled in 12 days. Coincidentally the elections have since been canceled.
The Pakistanis must not watch CNN or any of the other of the corporate controlled media outlets or they would realize that Al Qaeda was actually responsible and that Musharraf just happened to be a fortuitous beneficiary.
Does anybody really believe anything they hear from the MSM anymore?
That's a rhetorical question. You don't need to answer. I know the answer. And it is not very encouraging.
Here's a frightening thought that is not as far fetched as it sounds.
This could be a test run for America in less than a year.

Confused now:}

No sooner do I finish the above statement and Wolf Blitzer drops the bombshell about a letter from Benazir Bhutto blaming Musharraf if she should be assassinated.
What he said makes perfect sense. It's just that it doesn't make sense that HE said it.
Isn't he one of the main supporters of the White House propaganda rhetoric?
Does this mean he has to change his story or be out of a job?
Or has the Al Qaeda bogey man run out of steam?

US strategy

US strategy always has been to use leaders and allies as pawns. Expandable pawns. Once their use is up, they are thrown into the fire.

Look at the history behind Saddam Hussein, a staunch US ally in the 1980s.

How about Marcos from the Phillipines, the Shah of Iran, Pinochet etc. etc.

Regarding Mushrarraf-
Isn't he one of the main supporters of the White House propaganda rhetoric?

Yes he is and his use and time is up. They are all just cannon fodder and pawns just like Bhutto- herself a Washington ally was.

It is about expandability and how much use a puppet leader is. Once the puppet is no longer of value, he or she is thrown into the fire.

The PNAC-Neo-Con boys and girls have a bigger plan for Pakistan and the Escalation of the War on Terror. With Iran on hold, war over Pakistan's nuclear arsenal may be on the table.

We will have to wait and see but let us never underestimate what the global military industrial complex is capable of. Blitzer is a Mossad asset and has long standing ties with AIPAC.

Still waters run deep and we are seeing another phase on the War on Terror unfolding.

The worst thing in the world it seems is to be an American ally. Iraq (a 1980s ally), Iran(a 1950s-70s) ally would agree.

Musharraf is probably going to learn the high price alliance with treacherous forces in Washington.

More BS: How did Pakistan's Bhutto die?

3 causes of death in 36 hours- CNN

Benazir Bhutto hit her head on the sunroof, and the blow killed her. That's the latest explanation of how Pakistan's former prime minister died. Earlier, officials said gunfire and then shrapnel killed her. Stories are changing, and a former U.S. intelligence worker says that's because her enemies want "to deny her a martyr's death

http://edition.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/12/28/bhutto.death/index.html

...... An Interior Ministry spokesman, Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema, said Bhutto "fell down or perhaps ducked" and apparently hit her head on a lever connected to the car's sunroof. Cheema added that the lever was stained with blood.

Cheema's version of events conflicts with that of the government-run news agency Associated Press of Pakistan, which at first quoted the Interior Ministry as saying shrapnel from the bomb blast killed Bhutto. The suicide bomb killed more than 20 others, and at least 100 were wounded.

On Thursday, an initial report from the Interior Ministry said Bhutto died of a gunshot wound to the neck.

Bhutto's death did not result from a bullet or shrapnel, Cheema said, and nothing entered her head........

Updates: Clinton demands Bhutto probe, slams Musharraf

http://sg.news.yahoo.com/afp/20071228/twl-us-vote-2008-pakistan-attacks-...

Clinton demands Bhutto probe, slams Musharraf

STORY CITY, Iowa (AFP) - - Hillary Clinton Friday called for an independent, international probe into Benazir Bhutto's murder, as the turmoil wracking US anti-terror ally Pakistan reshaped debate in the White House race.ADVERTISEMENT

The Democratic front-runner weighed in on the crisis just six days before first 2008 party nominating contests, as fellow candidates also brandished their national security credentials and experience on the global stage.

"We need an international, independent investigation into the death of Benazir Bhutto," Clinton said, drawing applause from an audience in a packed school gymnasium as she campaigned in ice-bound Iowa.

Clinton paid a personal tribute to the former Pakistani prime minister, and also turned on President Pervez Musharraf, saying he had failed both to usher Pakistan towards democracy, and to crush Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

"It is also clear the Bush policy of giving Musharraf a blank check has failed," Clinton said, adding a Bhutto death probe could mirror the UN inquiry into the killing of Lebanese ex-prime minister Rafiq Hariri in 2005.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is amazing how quick Clinton is to call for a international investigation over Bhutto but is silent on any calls for independent international investigations on 911.

What a contrast.

It also amazing to see how the opposing sides, Republicans and Democrats can play tag team over the coverup of 911 and global issues on terrorism, maintaining the illusion of a democracy and fooling the American sheeple.

Nancy Pelosi pulled a fast one in 2006's elections and the Democrats promising an Iraqi pullot took the House, only to betray their voters and have signed every practically every war bill Bush sent to Congress.

It is amazing to see the depth of hypocrisy and treachery on the Hill. The Democrats could be worse than the Republicans.

How many 911s would it take before the American people realize they have been had.
No longer the Land of the Brave and Free.
Only pockets of resistance and stll the masses applaud the Clintons,the Bushes, the Romney's, the Huckabees.

At what point do a people with a heritage for freedom and democracy, realize they are living in a military dictatorship capable of killing its own innocent citizens in broad daylight.

Almost 3000 Americans on 911 slaughtered for a PNAC agenda.

What will it take for people to wake up? What is it going to be the next time?

30 Thousand? 30 Million? How about those 70 thousand neglected and dying 1st Responders?

Is it possible for Americans to be fooled and manipulated this easily.

When I see the crowds cheerleading the two politcal parties, the applause the Clintons receive and even Bush after all these lies with Iraq, I wonder if the American people want to live in a lie and want to be herded like sheep in a military dictatorship.

Perhaps being treated like a suspected criminal before boarding a plane is the next American Dream.

Or Nightmare.

What would the Founding Fathers say? How could this happen in the United States?

You are too generous with Hillary

I do not believe Hillary Clinton (CFR) is interested in finding the Truth regarding the assassination of Bhutto. My intuition is telling me that it's probable that her death has its origins outside of Pakistan, and that destabilizing Pakistan was the primary objective. Notice the oblique insinuation that Musharraf was somehow responsible. Senator Clinton even evoked the specter of the mythical "al Qaeda". It seems probably that Clinton's real objective is to fan the flames of unrest in Pakistan, and to engender in the American people a mistrust of the political institutions of Pakistan with the objective of increasing coercive US involvement in the region.

I always had a good feeling about Bhutto. I'm truly sorry to learn that she was killed. I do not know who is ultimately responsible. I wish I had a way to tell all the people of Pakistan to step back for a minute and consider the possibility that she was killed by someone other than her political opponents. I would tell them that division and strife was likely the objective of the assassination. To take out their anger on their neighbors is likely playing right into the hands of the assassins.

It's ironic that the "state run" Pakistani media was mentioned. In Pakistan there is a media outlet run by the state. In the US there is a state run by a cartel of media outlets. Who are we going to believe?
