South Asia Times is reporting that a spokesperson for a top al-Quaeda commander, Mustafa Abu al-Yadid, said Benizir Bhutto was assassinated because she was “the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat mujahideen.”
These beasts actually have spokesmen, just like US senators and presidents.
Had Mustafa Abu al-Yadid been caught by American troops in Iraq, America’s most precious assets, Chris Dodd among them, would have festooned him with Constitutional rights, supplied him with a lawyer – probably ex-US Attorney General Ramsay Clark – and no one would have laid him on a water board to extract actionable data from him.
Benizar was not long for this world; she was a courageous woman, like Hersi Ali, who also has a price on her head. The jihadists hate women, booze and democracy.
It may also be worth pointing out that Bhutto was assassinated because she was conducting diplomacy with the Bush administration. In an age swarming with jihadists, diplomacy has once again become a dangerous pursuit.
