Watch New Video That Appears To Show Bhutto Being Shot

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and the attempt by the Pakistani government to cloud the cause of death, is maddening.  Now there is more proof that shots were fired, and that the shots killed the former Prime Minister.

CNN Reports (video on CNN Site) that dramatic new videotape of the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto emerged Sunday, showing her slumping just after gunshots ring out.  The tape provides the clearest view yet of the attack and appears to show that Bhutto was shot. That would contradict the Pakistan government’s account.

President Musharraf needs to allow a fair and objective investigation into the murder to proceed without government involvement at once.  The Bush Administration needs to demand that the facts be gathered, and the evidence not tampered with.  American foreign policy should focus on the needs of Pakistan, not the failed man now at the helm due to a coup.

The murder was horrible.  The attempt to whitewash the murder is embarrassing.
