Bhutto’s Assassination Was Caught On Tape

From Reuters, via YouTube:

Bhutto’s last moments caught on tape

This is more than just morbid curiosity, now that there are claims that she did not die from a bullet or shrapnel wound.

From the UK’s Sky News:

Bhutto Assassin ‘Captured On Film’

Saturday December 29, 2007

The latest video footage from Benazir Bhutto’s assassination in Pakistan appears to show the moment her killer attacked.

The images capture a man aiming a pistol and firing at least two shots, just yards from the opposition leader. An explosion can then be seen.

Al Qaeda-linked militant commander Baitullah Mehsud has denied government claims that he was involved in the attack.

Meanwhile, a row has erupted over exactly how Ms Bhutto died, while emergency talks into whether a January election should be go ahead loom.

Ms Bhutto was killed on Thursday after an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi. The gunman opened fire before an explosive was detonated.

Security officials initially said Ms Bhutto had been shot in the neck and head. But the government then announced she died when the force of the blast smashed her head on a sunroof lever.

Dismissing the government’s “ludicrous” theory, a close aide who prepared Ms Bhutto’s body for burial insisted she was shot in the head.

Sherry Rehman said: “She has a bullet wound at the back of her head on the left side. It came out the other. That was a very large wound, and she bled profusely through that.”

She accused the government of not providing enough security for Ms Bhutto and attempting a “cover up”. …

Needless to say, we will be hearing conspiracy theories about this for the rest of time.

Though, hopefully, Ms. Bhutto’s close personal friend Mrs. Clinton will have her way and an international tribunal will be commissioned to investigate this.

With all the suspects afforded all the rights and privileges of US citizens under our Constitution, of course.
