Al Qaida Claim Bhutto Assasination

"We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat the mujahadeen," Al-Qaeda's commander and main spokesperson Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone call from an unknown location, speaking in faltering English. Al-Yazid is the main al-Qaeda commander in Afghanistan.
Bhutto had just addressed a rally on Thursday in Rawalpindi when a lone attacker shot her in the head and detonated a bomb. 20 other Bhutto supporters were killed in the attack and severals injured.

Bhutto was leading a US offensive against al Qaida in Pakistan and Afghanistan which was to be greatly boulstered early next year.

These plans are now uncertain as Pakistan has become unstable. Analysts are wondering what al Qaida has planned to deal with the political fall out of the assasination. As we saw in Madrid, al Qaida always uses it's attacks to maximise the political effect and seldom carries out it's operations without a total policy.

Once again al Qaida has severly disrupted US Imperial plans for the region.

stay tuned for two minutes of hate at 11, then cute puppies

Critical thinkers have long wondered whether "al Qaeda" even exists, outside the constructed realities of the terror state and the media spectacle. As official enemies go it's not especially convincing.

This Above Smells Strong of Disinformation 28.Dec.2007 08:22

United States C.I.A. Killed Bhutto...an Educated Guess

This one above smells strongly of the U.S. C.I.A. The U.S. C.I.A. is very tight with the Pakistan C.I.A.

Ask who stands to gain? The U.S. puppet in Pakistan and the puppetmasters.

I wrote a radio commentary about this very thing.

Follow the money. Analyze who gains from this. What might be the end goal these terrorists have in mind? What kind of terrorists have the power to relax or call off state-funded security? Things are getting complicated, but I couldn't help but notice that the U.S./Pakistani ambassador didn't seem sad at all that Bhutto was dead. He could barely cover his elation.
