Bhutto did die of gunshots

Doug Ross has the photos; Ed Morrissey has the video:

As Ed explains

Musharraf has a huge credibility problem, and this video makes it crystal clear. Until now, Musharraf has resisted calls for an international investigation into the assassination. Today, CNN reports that the Pakistani government could reconsider that decision. If they do, the family of Bhutto could then agree to an exhumation and an autopsy by an independent coroner which will confirm the cause of death.

That will open up a lot of questions about the official government story and what prompted it. With so many eyewitnesses to the murder, why float such a ridiculous theory about a sunroof handle? What were they trying to cover up? The video also shows the vehicle surrounded by people; where was a security cordon? How could the police, seen standing around the vehicle, allow a gunman to get within a few feet of Bhutto?

I certainly hope the FBI stays away from any kind of investigation.

Bhutto’s son named as successor in what amounts to a feudal succession.

Tariq Ali says that Pakistan deserves better than this grotesque feudal charade. Unfortunately he can’t think of anyone.

Meanwhile here in the USA, since the front-page spotlight’s not shining on her, Hillary’s saying she risked her life on White House trips in yet another lie, after claiming she was pals with Benezir Bhutto. Siggy, however, has better memory than Hillaray and asks

One has to wonder why Senator Clinton would be so close to someone who referred to her supporters as ‘chumps and loonies.’

Your guess is as good as mine.

    The Clintons, nouveau-pedigreed Ivy Leaguers and assiduously focused on emerging from hard-scrabble origins (from which HRC was but one generation removed, and WJC none), have long cultivated practical ties to the historically affluent and influential. The psychological imprints and public traces of this are strewn everywhere, as you’ve noticed. (Whitewater is where HRC first egg on her face trying to make a quick buck; the “gifts” she and WJC received and the White House theft they engineered upon moving to NY in 2001 are a more recent example.)

    The Clintons have done it the mainstream American way, which happens to be the opposite of the criminal American way. Think Scarface, cara Fausta: First you get the money, then you get the power. With the Clintons, they got the power first then the money.
