Default A sorry tale

A new book by the Chilean UN official who headed an investigative commission in Ms Bhutto's death is out. In a Foreign Policy article, based on the book, the author ends with:
Quote:
...most Pakistani political actors would rather turn the page than continue investigating who was behind her assassination. Probably no government or court of law will be able or willing to fully disentangle the whole truth from that web. It may well be that Bhutto’s assassination will be another unsolved case in the long history of impunity in Pakistan, and that the controversy surrounding her assassination will endure as much as her memory.

Now of course there are the headlines 'Musharraf indicted for murder of Benazir Bhutto':http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-23763895

Default Ten years later: who did kill Benazir Bhutto

Yes today marks the tenth anniversary of her murder and Owen Bennett-Jones, a veteran BBC reporter, for a long time in Pakistan, returns to the story with an excellent explanation IMHO:
Quote:
Benazir Bhutto was the first woman to lead a Muslim country. The decade since an assassin killed her has revealed more about how Pakistan works than it has about who actually ordered her death.
