Bhutto Assassination update

I have spent these days since the lamentable assassination of
Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan in a state of mournful sorrow, yet
with a twist of amusement, but not in the funny, ha ha sort of
way. No, I have been 'amused' by the Pakistani government's
(ie. murderers) explanation of the events on that tragic day.
Apparently, according to the government spokesman, Bhutto
did not die from gunshots or the bomb explosion. No, the
sunroof killed her! Yes, you read correctly. Bhutto, as you all
know by now, was waving and saluting her adoring public 
as she stood in the open sunroof of her vehicle. When the
deadly commotion started, she quickly tried to re-enter her
vehicle (according to the government version), and in doing
so, hit the lever of the sunroof with the back of her head,
fracturing it and causing the fatal injuries. That's right,
death by sunroof is the version they are trying to sell. I just
want to know when the entire world became blonde, or
were born yesterday. It is just an insult to even offer up 
such a pathetic fantasy; who in their right mind would even
for a moment consider such an excuse? A harried videotape 
taken during the dreadful episode has surfaced, and despite
it not being of the best quality, it is still very clear that 
Bhutto was shot first, as you see her buckle and begin to
collapse, then the light of the explosion from the suicide
bomb follows almost immediately after. So now the red-
faced Pakistani government, trying to present some
semblance of propriety, has invited Scotland Yard investi-
gators into Pakistan to assist in discovering exactly how 
Bhutto was killed and who was responsible (again insulting
our intelligence, as if we didn't know....sheesh). Further-
more, a few days ago, the government announced they 
would delay the elections until February, due to the exces-
sive protests and violence after Bhutto's death. It would 
not surprise me in the least if the elections were delayed 
again, or not even held. And if they do ever take place, it 
will be ridiculously rigged, so it will all be moot. But 
nothing, not Scotland Yard, not any mournful protest by 
Pakistani citizens, will bring Benazir Bhutto back. Sad.
