Drinking the blood of the People?

In the days after Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, it will be tempting to reach two hasty conclusions: that she was Pakistan’s last great hope and that her geopolitically crucial country has revealed itself to be inherently hopeless.

So begins a blog post commentary by Irshad Manji.

Richard Engel wrote in November of this year about BB’s ‘darker’ side.


This was one of the first reports I watched about BB’s assassination. My first thought: She’ll be memorialized regardless of her legacy. It’s from John Moore – Getty Images senior staff photographer. He describes the carnage as, “people were scattered all about….people were in different stages of medical crisis. Some could still walk; others were blown to bits. Others were maimed and were just crying out for help……..It was just a horrible scene. The carnage was just everywhere.”

Also found something interesting at Pakistan Think Tank.org.

Still trying to sort out who she ‘was.’ Looseheadprop at firedoglake had a memory post up about Bennie Bhutto, as did Arianna Huffington.
