Just a couple observations and comments:
1. Correctly aiming a pistol is not the easiest thing to do even under ideal circumstances, and in the vid there is obviously a huge and surging crowd condition, and the gunman appears to be reaching up over his head and firing. To me this says that IF one or more of these bullets hit her, it was by sheer luck, AND there is indeed a great chance that each and every shot missed completely.
So the Pak pres should step down. While a professional group of csi and forensic team members investigate Bhutto's true cause of death that has no ties to the PPP party or the Pak government.
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistan rejected foreign help in investigating the assassination of Benazir Bhutto on Saturday, despite controversy over the circumstances of her death and three days of paralyzing turmoil.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that an international probe was vital because there was "no reason to trust the Pakistani government," while others called for a U.N. investigation.
Cheema dismissed the suggestion.
"This is not an ordinary criminal matter in which we require assistance of the international community. I think we are capable of handling it," he said. An independent judicial investigation should be completed within seven days of the appointment of its presiding judge, he said.
U.S. officials, however, said Pakistani officials have quietly begun consulting with other nations about the conduct of their investigation
"The Pakistan government is discussing with other governments as to how best the investigation can be handled," one senior U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no agreement had yet come from the discussions.
With the United States, the official said, the discussions "are about what we can offer and what the Pakistanis want. Having some help to make sure international questions are answered is definitely an option."
There was no immediate confirmation from Pakistani officials.
White House spokesman Tony Fratto said Pakistan had not asked the United States for help.
"It's a responsibility of the government of Pakistan to ensure that the investigation is thorough. If Pakistani authorities ask for assistance we would review the request," he said.

I think it's foolish of her son to carry on with her political career. I mean I already see a pattern here as with the Kennedy's, Benazir Bhutto's Father was assassinated, her brother, and now her. If I were her son I would just vanish from politics because he will more than likely follow his mother's fate.

I refuse to watch the video,
it's still happy holidays and I can not be bothered to see people being blown up because they were supporting some Western views of the free world.
World wars will not start because of events like these, America attacked Iraq and that is a lot bigger as 9/11 did not start a world war and that is just a war and that is all.
No one will use nukes either, it won't happen and even if they did they would only blow Pakistan it self up and no one else.
