CIA Places Blame for Bhutto Assassination


www.washingtonpost.com

The CIA has concluded that members of al-Qaeda and allies of Pakistani tribal leader Baitullah Mehsud were responsible for last month's assassination of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto, and that they also stand behind a new wave of violence threatening that country's stability, the agency's director, Michael V. Hayden, said in an interview.

Offering the most definitive public assessment by a U.S. intelligence official, Hayden said Bhutto was killed by fighters allied with Mehsud, a tribal leader in northwestern Pakistan, with support from al-Qaeda's terrorist network. That view mirrors the Pakistani government's assertions.

This is not a surprise but there are some interesting statements in the article concerning Pakistan, terrorists, possibility of special forces in Pakistan (already there IMO), discusses CIA's involvement in the region.

Some have said that Bhutto's assassination would be an event used to increase US prescence in the country, could this interview be subtly laying the groundwork for the future?

You're right, this is about as surprising as the sun rising in the east.

This prior thread signaled the NY Times reporting that the administration was weighing a serious move into the northern tribal region of Pakistan with CIA and special forces, and now we see a CIA assessment once again rubber-stamping prior political deliberations.

The CIA has concluded that members of al-Qaeda

oh well now that the cia has said its Al-Qaeda we can all rest easy. never mind the fact that the shoorter appeared to be a western man in a suit. nevermind they said it was the sunroof that killed her even though the video shows her being shot. never mind who stood to gain from the act and deffinitly never mind the medicle examiner was silenced and the original reports confiscated. oh those tricky Al-Qaeda.

I guess some members of congress aren't quick to buy the CIA version of the assasination:


Speaker Pelosi calls for international probe

WASHINGTON, Jan 17: Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi has demanded an international probe into the murder of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and observed that the slain Pakistani leader had made tremendous contributions to the cause of democracy.

In a full-house debate on Pakistan, Ms Pelosi also urged the Bush administration to ensure that the forthcoming elections are fair and free.


Bhutto's party has sent a letter to the UN asking them to investigate and I think Scotland Yard is still investigating the assasination at the request of the Pakistani government.

How many versions can we expect to keep us from the truth?

This is really heating up . I have been wondering what happened for a while .

Didn't she say in a video who was out to get her and that she had papers to prove something that would get released if she dies (I may be a little off here )

I seem to remember it brought up in a different context somewhere.

You certainly couldn't expect the organization that assassinated JFK, MLK and RFK to do any thing but deny the obvious. They and their lackey's have just eliminated the opposition leader. Remember Vietnam, we selected Diem and later lost faith in him so he became expendible. The same with Bhutto our former ally. You would think people would learn but hope springs eternal.

I mean come on really! who did you think it was? of course it was the despot president in charge of pakistan, she wasnt back in the country two hours before somebody tried to kill her, she is a danger( or rather was a danger) to the establised system, they wont even let her pary run in the postponed elections either, and this nuclear armed state fanatical muslim state is one of americas allies!

It's all alphabet soup...even Bhutto knew the ISI was out to get her. The ISI is a proxy for the CIA, and I'd doubt they'd implicate themselves.

cui bono

who cares she was a murderer just like musharaaf. She had a choice between exocution and excile.

she chose excile. and then came back 10 yrs later.

she deserved it. it was probally musharaaf.

and guess what he is 100% correct to excersize the courts decision.

OK, just to play devils advocate, here's what the other side are saying;


Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party (PPP) says the US and Pakistani spy agencies are the number one suspects behind the assassination of the opposition leader.

"Her assassination is calculated. Her killing is a fascist act. US Central Intelligence agency (CIA) and Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) should shoulder responsibility for her assassination," Amanullah Khan, a Britain-based leader of the PPP said in a memorial service.

He added Bhutto was longing to go back to Pakistan in her effort to restore democracy there but was 'deceived and stabbed in the back by the CIA and ISI'.

I don't really believe this, but then I don't really believe the CIA either - they haven't got the best of records when it comes to spin and lies.

This is just more back and forth trying to justify the chubby that bush has for war.

It's like the kid who farts in class and immediately points the finger to a common troublemaker. That doesn't make it true though.

Yes, and the poison spike on the side that was installed by reptillians who were trying to deflect from the princess di inquest, because that might lead to questions about holographic cars, and holographic planes.



Joke

we could make a game show out of it first you spin a wheel and land on a disaster or act of violence and then you spin a diffrent wheel for who to blame it on and as the bonus round you spin a wheel of consequences like sanctions, torture, maiming, hummiliation and war . we could even call it the blaim game hey it practicly wrights its self. and people could bet on it so you get the casinos involved and have the president as the host .

NOW SPIN THAT WHEEL!!!!

Yep, that's about when I grew disgusted with the article.


"With ties to Al Qaeda." What exactly is this with the CIA? Anyone they want to say bad has ties with Al Qaeda. Is there an Al Qaeda Myspace where they can check and see who is in Osama Bin Laden's extended network?

You know, if they knew that, and didn't say it, I would have given them a little more credibility. But raising the flag of fear consistently is becoming a disgusting joke.

The business of grief.
