The first reports arriving the day Benazir died was three gun shots to the head resulting in her death, after she was buried today the Govt of Pakistan Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema offers a complete new explanation for the cause of death, he said that she was NOT killed because of the three gun shots but in fact while collapsing into the car immediately following the explosion of the bomb ‘she collapsed and while collapsing a lever on the left side hit the right side of her head’, the left-right explanation sounds stupid enough since the gun shot came from the left. He was then quick to name Al-Qaeda as the organization behind all this.
In utter shock I feel this is yet another ploy by the government to blame the ‘terrorist organizations’, No one dares to accept that this could easily have been the outcome of Mushrraf’s eight year rule where he plunges his people in utter confusion and chaos – it is the people of Pakistan that saw Musharraf orchestrate blood shed on the streets of Karachi on May 12th killing hundreds, people seem to have forgotten the hundreds ruthlessly murdered inside Lal Masjid and their bodies were quickly buried within a matter of hours as if to hide a crime scene. Lets not also forget the annihilation being done in Swat and the northern areas.
One does not need the services of a brain surgeon to figure out that with all these incidents compounded with a poor-crushing economy contributing to the frustrations, one does not need to run to Al-Qaeda to do this dirty work. Hell you walk on the street and with a matter of minute you will easily find a person frustrated enough with life to do such dirty work, the general consensus on the street is that anyone linked to Musharraf and the US must go. Literally any one could have done it and it does not take Osama Bin Laden to send a guy with a flimsy revolver to Liaquat Bagh and miss his primary target only to hope the ‘lever’ hits her after the bomb blast. sad to say it but I feel the blame must go squarely on Musharraf and there are no two ways about it – its time for him to go.
I wish I could have yelled for a judicial inquiry following an independent autopsy, but sadly there is no judiciary, as the Supreme Court at the moment houses a few pencil pushers loyal to Musharraf’s commands.
Suspicion must be given that it took them TWENTY FOUR hours after the body left the mortuary to say that there was no bullet wound !!!. In all honesty if they had to deny the rumor they should have done it right on the spot. Lastly this press conference seems to be strategically placed after her burial so it will be difficult to demand an inquiry. Say what you may I strongly suspect foul play. Whats your take on this issue
