Does Hillary Clinton know what this means? She’s accusing Obama of politicizing Bhutto’s death. Now, I get that Hillary’s original vote on the Iraq war should not be directly linked to Bhutto’s death. But there’s no freaking way not to politicize her death.
1. to bring a political character or flavor to; make political: to politicize a private dispute.
2. to engage in or discuss politics.
For anyone who hasn’t realized this, Bhutto’s death is BAD BAD BAD! Not discussing the political implications would be asinine.
So is anyone else frustrated by the changing cause of death? First shrapnel, then bullets, and now a sun roof lever. Did it occur to anyone else that Bhutto said she would blame Musharraf if she was killed and as the president of the country, HE is the one controlling the dissemination of this information? Now, I realize that Bhutto was mostly referring to his lack of providing protection for her. She was a marked lady the minute she returned to Pakistan. But still, the implications of bullets to the head versus a sun roof lever are different. As my friend Linda said, it’s still murder regardless. Tis true. But a sharp shooter taking her out is still very different than a bomb that could have been intended more for her followers and as a dissuasion to her running.
It’s also interesting that earlier reports said al Queda claimed responsibility, but now they are saying no one has. However, read this article with a transcription of a conversation between the official identified Taliban leader and one of his cronies.
That’s all I have on this for now, but I’m following it closely.
