Al Qaida Linkked to Bloody Assassination Attempt

IslamoFascism at its best. If the opposition doesn't agree with you, kill it. And fret not about the hundreds of innocent lives you destroy along the way. Kill them all, let Allah sort them out...

These Islamic terrorists don't care what the people of Pakistan want. They don't care about human rights and they have no respect for the lives of anyone. Their death cult has taught them all just rewards - and punishments - will be doled out by Allah in the afterlife.

KARACHI, Pakistan - The midnight suicide attack that killed at least 136 people and shattered the homecoming of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto may be the work of al-Qaida and the Taliban, authorities said Friday, as forensic experts studied the severed head of the alleged bomber to try to determine his identity.

The attack — one of the deadliest in Pakistan's history — bore the hallmarks of militants allied with pro-Taliban warlord Baitullah Mehsud and al-Qaida, according to Ghulam Muhammad Mohtarem, the top security official in Sindh province, where the attack took place. He suggested that Bhutto's camp had not seriously considered the need for security for her return after eight years in exile.

"We were already fearing a strike from Mehsud and his local affiliates and this was conveyed to (Bhutto's Pakistan's) People's Party but they got carried away by political exigencies instead of taking our concern seriously," Mohtarem said.

Bhutto's procession had been creeping toward the center of Karachi for 10 hours with supporters thronging her armored truck when a small explosion erupted near the front of the vehicle. That was quickly followed by a larger blast, destroying two police vans escorting the procession. Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao said the vehicles on the left side of Bhutto's truck had borne the brunt of the blast.
