Headline: Arrests Made Over Bhutto Assassination

Pakistani police arrested two alleged terrorists in connection with the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto. The suspects alleged involvement is unknown, but they are being held along with two previously arrested suspects — Aizaz Shah, 15, and Sher Zaman

The government in Pakistan has determined that Baitullah Mehsud orchestrated last December's assassination. Mehsud, the leader of Pakistan's Taliban, also has connections to al-Qaeda. The CIA reached the same conclusion. Bhutto's family and party are accusing President Musharraf's government of being involved in Bhutto's death. Musharraf denies any involvement.

The arrests come at the end of the 40-day mourning period — a day when thousands of people have gathered at Benazir Bhutto's tomb in southern Pakistan.

I'm not only sadden by the lost of a great woman, but to know that a 15 year old might have something to do with her assassination makes the entire situation all the more saddening.

The Pakistan government and the CIA? I don't know how much confidence I have in these two agencies working to bring Bhutto's actual killers to justice. Call me a pessimist I guess.
