I would venture to guess the bomber was sent to take out the shooter.
No shooter, no link back to the government. snip.
In October 1990, Nawaz Sharif is running for election to replace Benazir Bhutto as the prime minister of Pakistan. According to a senior Pakistani intelligence source, bin Laden passes a considerable amount of money to Sharif and his party, since Sharif promises to introduce a hard-line Islamic government. Bin Laden has been supporting Sharif for several years. There is said to be a photograph of Sharif chatting with bin Laden.
On December 27, in a CNN interview just hours after the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Sharif said: "This is not a sad day. This is the darkest and gloomiest day in the history of our country." Amidst the shock of the death of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto Sharif had announced that he would boycott the January 8, Pakistani general elections. Sharif called for President Pervez Musharraf to resign due to the lack of security leading up to Benazir Bhutto's death. Sharif rushed to the hospital where Bhutto was transported, sitting beside her body and comforting her supporters. Sharif called Bhutto his sister and vowed to avenge her death
(CNN) -- An audio message from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden released Thursday called on Muslims to "carry out jihad" against Pakistan's president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

I think they should exhume her body, I wonder why her family and party don't request that?]

At the morgue and during the funeral preperations, photos were taken by a medical examiner and thus a cause of death was determined as well as documented in the usual C.S.I. fashion.

No need for an investigation
New details of Benazir Bhutto’s final moments, including indications that her doctors felt pressured to conform to government accounts of her death
...the doctors believed that an autopsy was needed to provide the answers to how she actually died. Their request for one last Thursday was denied by the local police chief.
...Mohammad Mussadiq Khan, the principal professor of surgery at the Rawalpindi General Hospital, told him on the night of Ms. Bhutto’s death that she had died of a bullet wound.
At a news conference Sunday, Ms. Bhutto’s husband, Asif Ali Zardari, said he had declined a request for a post-mortem examination. “It was an insult to my wife, an insult to the sister of the nation, an insult to the mother of the nation,” he said. “I know their forensic reports are useless. I refuse to give them her last remains.”
He said he refused because he did not trust the government investigation to prove the cause of her death
Lawyer: Police prevented Bhutto autopsy
Rawalpindi's police chief stopped doctors at the hospital where Benazir Bhutto died from conducting an autopsy, according to a lawyer on the hospital's board.
It was a violation of Pakistani criminal law and prevented a medical conclusion about what killed the former prime minister, said Athar Minallah, a lawyer who serves on the board that manages Rawalpindi General Hospital.

The theory that the gunman could have been one of Bhutto's own security people has some merit.
