Headline: Benazir Bhutto Assassinated

Just 12 days before the already troubled elections in Pakistan, minority leader Benazir Bhutto, recently returned from exile, has been killed in a combination of gunfire and suicide bombing at a rally.

Bhutto had recently voiced concern over her safety, and this tragic realization of her fears will be felt internationally. The United States' strategic relationship with Pakistan was tested in November, when leader Pervez Musharraf imposed a six-week period of emergency rule that threatened to impede the upcoming election.

While sifting through the breaking information on the assassination, I found this chilling tidbit from Wonkette:

"We would normally probably snark, but we also recall that Al-Qaeda assassinated Northern Alliance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud as sort of a favor/thank-you gesture to the Taliban on September 9, 2001 to ensure their continued protection, so we’re sorta just going to hide under the covers for a couple of days."

Not meant to scare, but it does go to show that even events halfway around the world can't possibly get far enough away anymore. Stay tuned for more information as it breaks.

So sad. RIP. My fiance and I were pretty broken up when we heard she was killed. I hope her son does well with the party.
