Benazir Bhutto, 1953-2007: A Martyr To Her Own Greed

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated at a political rally in Rawalpindi.

You will see media reports of shock and grief at her death, but you will not likely see anything about how thoroughly she betrayed her country for personal gain.

Her death will be painted as a blow to George Bush and his plan to make Benazir the face of Pakistani "democracy". It will also be painted as a blow to Pakistani "democracy" itself.

But if there were anything approaching democracy in Pakistan and the USA, Benazir Bhutto and George Bush would both have been in prison a long time ago.
