Bhutto Assassinated

I don't have much to say about the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, beyond how courageous she was in her return to Pakistan. She had to have known her life would be in danger, and the multiple assassination attempts before this one only confirmed that fact.

The story is all over the news. And some of the talking heads are trying to figure out how to blame President Bush for this. Did he put too much pressure on Pakistan? Did he put on too little pressure?

Enough already with blaming America for the world's ills.

Sparks From the Anvil has good coverage of the story. Also weighing in are:

Michelle Malkin
Hugh Hewitt
A symposium at the National Review
Powerline here, here, here, and especially here

Only time will tell what effects this assassination will have on conditions in the radical jihadist realm and in the world as a whole. I'm not about to hazard a guess.
