#1 Let's say I push someone off of a 10 story building. Can I argue that my pushing them off did not kill them, since they were alive when they went over the edge? It was the sudden stop on the pavement that killed them! NOT MY FAULT!

The suicide bomber did not detonate to avoid capture, but to have a second opportunity to kill Benazir if the gunshots missed. Suppose he dove under the vehicle, detonated, flipped the car, and she had been crushed under it. Still dead. Wouldn't be if the bomber hadn't gone off.

Her book recounted an earlier assassination attempt that relied exclusively on a bomb planted in a baby. If it had succeeded, that would NOT have been an assassination?

PPP's not too familiar with cause and effect, are they?

#3 > apparently the Paki Govt has already formally rejected the findings of Scotland Yard that Benazir died via a bomb blast.

#4 How in the deuce did you deduce that, Stones?

Hey, Al Q, the ISI, or a JV took her out. Let's keep focused on the big picture, folks. Add Pak Nukes, and you have the bigger pictures. Jeeze Louise......
