ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistan has “intelligence intercepts” indicating that al Qaeda was behind the killing of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, the Interior Ministry said on Friday.
“We have intelligence intercepts indicating that al Qaeda leader Baitullah Mehsud is behind her assassination,” ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema told a news conference.
Mehsud is one of Pakistan’s most wanted militant leaders and is based in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border.
LIKE, the Taliban AND the ISI??? Come clean…Wait, you CAN’T come clean. The blood on your hands will not wash off.

But DO YOU know the truth about what was said? And, what happened?
Are we not as responsible for the same offenses– if we just leap to grab an answer that suits our beliefs?
Can NSA tell us what was picked-up out there?

Main suspects are warlords and security forces
,i>The main suspects in the assassination are the foreign and Pakistani Islamist militants who saw Ms Bhutto as a Westernised heretic and an American stooge, and had repeatedly threatened to kill her.
But fingers will also be pointed at the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, (ISI) which has had close ties to the Islamists since the 1970s and has been used by successive Pakistani leaders to suppress political opposition. Ms Bhutto narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in October, when a suicide bomber struck at a rally in Karachi to welcome her back from exile.

There are so many obvious choices to pick from, it is hard to take anything said as gospel. It could just as easily be one as the other–and I suspect that the choice isn’t made via the facts, but who most conveniently fits the political mold, so to speak.
Hell, so far, her death has been ascribed to one deadly injury after another. Who knows what will come next?
