CLINTON, Iowa - Hillary Rodham Clinton waded into Pakistan's volatile internal political situation yesterday, raising the possibility the country's military might have assassinated Benazir Bhutto because the killing took place in the garrison city of Rawalpindi. Clinton's remarks came as Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's government seemed to reject a call for an independent international investigation of the murder that Clinton and John Edwards proposed on Friday. During a question-and-answer session at an elementary school here, Clinton offered a detailed prescription for the troubled country, suggesting that the U.S divert aid away from its military to social welfare programs. And for the second time in as many days, she cast doubt on Musharraf's contention that the suicide bombing that led to the death of the country's most popular opposition leader was masterminded by al-Qaida. "There are those saying that al-Qaida did it. Others are saying it looked like it was an inside job - remember Rawalpindi is a garrison city," she said. --Hillary: Pakistan troops might have killed BhuttoIsn't it interesting that it was Secretary of State Condoleezsa Rice who brokered Bhutto's return to Pakistan when even Bhutto knew that her life would be endangered? I smell the work of an axis of evil: neocons, Bush, and his puppet: Musharraf. Bhutto herself has exposed the fraudulent nature of the Bush/Blair "war on terrorism". If Bin Laden is dead, as has been reported, then the various tapes that he is alleged to have made are all phony. The war on terrorism itself is a callous, calculated fraud perpetrated by a murderous Bush regime, a murderous Blair regime, a murderous puppet regime of Musharraf. That's why Bhutto was murdered. She was the woman who knew too much. Bhutto exposed the fact that US policies cause terrorism and she stated the various ways in which groups inside the US and Britain benefited politically and materially from the phony war on phony terrorism, the failed war in Afghanistan, the war crime that is still perpetrated against the people of Iraq. Bhutto posed a threat to the culprits in the Bush regime to include Bush himself. She posed a threat to the kiss ups in Musharraf's regime to include Musharraf and the liars who tried to float the incredible "lone lever" theory. She was murdered. And the BBC has been caught censoring the most important piece of the puzzle. If Osama is dead, the war on terror is a bloody fraud! Related developments from Information Clearing House:

Anglo-American Ambitions behind the Assassination of Benazir Bhutto and the Destabilization of Pakistan By Larry Chin 12/29/07 "Global Research" -- -- It has been known for months that the Bush-Cheney administration and its allies have been maneuvering to strengthen their political control over Pakistan, paving the way for the expansion and deepening of the "war on terrorism" across the region. The assassination of Benazir Bhutto does not change this agenda. In fact, it simplifies Bush-Cheney's options. Seeding chaos with a pretext "Delivering democracy to the Muslim world" has been the Orwellian rhetoric used to mask Bush-Cheney's application of pressure and force, its dramatic attempt at reshaping of the Pakistani government (into a joint Bhutto/Sharif-Musharraf) coalition, and backdoor plans for a military intervention. Various American destabilization plans, known for months by officials and analysts, proposed the toppling of Pakistan's military. The assassination of Bhutto appears to have been anticipated. There were even reports of "chatter" among US officials about the possible assassinations of either Pervez Musharraf or Benazir Bhutto, well before the actual attempts took place. As succinctly summarized in Jeremy Page's article, "Who Killed Benazir Bhutto? The Main Suspects", the main suspects are 1) "Pakistani and foreign Islamist militants who saw her as a heretic and an American stooge", and 2) the Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI, a virtual branch of the CIA. Bhutto's husband Asif Ali Zardari directly accused the ISI of being involved in the October attack. The assassination of Bhutto has predictably been blamed on "Al-Qaeda", without mention of fact that Al-Qaeda itself is an Anglo-American military-intelligence operation. ---
A related note about "conspiracy theories", specifically attempts to discredit a proposition by simply labeling it --"conspiracy theory". Such "labeling" is a crude and fallacious meat clever attempt to avoid the issue. In fact, very little of significance --legal or illegal-- is ever accomplished by one person working alone. If "what gets done" is legal, it's usually called "free enterprise" or some such. If whatever "gets done" is not legal it's called a "criminal conspiracy". Anyone who thinks that conspiracies do not exist has never bothered to read law of any type. If as few as two people agree to commit a crime, you've got a conspiracy. Conspiracies are not rare. They are, in fact, the general rule. Check the Cornell Law Library, Findlaw, or any other reputable source for law, Supreme Court decisions, et al. Do a quick search of Findlaw for SCOTUS decisions having to do with "conspiracies". You will get hundreds if not thousands of returns, thousands of SCOTUS decisions having to do with conspiracies of one sort or another. There are certainly more SCOTUS decisions having to do with "conspiracies" than I care to waste my time counting. Now --why would the Supreme Court waste so much time and paper deliberating something that does not exist? Why can't this stupid issue, this stupid tactic be put to rest? If conspiracies do not exist, then please tell the justices of the Supreme Court of the US to stop wasting their time and taxpayer money deciding cases about issues which do not even exist.
