    Hi,

    First the assasination, then the agitation and now the blame game has started. In this era of high technology and fast track information period, pakistan, Pres Musharraf and his party members are often clueless how to handle strategic issues about how to tackle this problem of different statements coming out of the ministry of information within the same day. Seems like there is no contingency plan prepared ahead of time for situation like this and even iff there is a plan in place, the implementation is not there.

    Times like these, are extremely stressful on the govt officials, but if they prepare ahead of time about these scenarios, they won't have muck on their faces. There were so many different statements coming out through the news media as to the cause of Bhutto's death, but their was no firm denial of the rumours. When the govt came out, there was one explanation at one time and then there was another afterwards. . At this time we really don't know if our media is getting ahead of itself and making up the news and create sensation.

    Once it got confirmed that she died of blunt force trauma to the skull, pakistan govt should have performed autopsy on the body. A third party physician from the european embassy or from the U S embassy should also have been involved and present at the time of autopsy and a comprehensive report released including their comments. A dead body does not lie---it will tell you if it has been the victim of a gun shot or an impact.

    The dead body of any citizen is the property of the government first and foremost. The govt has the right to perform autopsy to find out the cause of death. They donot have to ask the permission of the relatives to do that task. When national security is at stake, priorities change.

    It is a very critical time in the history of the nation and a lot of care should have been taken in releasing this information. Now, Sherry Rahman is bickering about the gun shot wound she saw, when she was bathing the dead body before burial----if the government had done its job properly, we would not be seeing this flame war started. And if the govt say that they had not anticipated this attack, then they are fools who need to be treated worse.

    I, myself have been waiting for Sherry Rahman to speak out about this incidence and she will not let go till she destroys everything.

    The govt reaction against any agitation had been very slow in sindh and other parts of the country. Right after her assasination, curfew should have been declared in all sensitive areas, rangers and millitary should have called ahead of time and shoot on sight orders given for those involved in the destruction of property. But again, the govt functionaries have been caught with their pants down.

    Now one more thing-----remember when years ago I stated that the suicide attacks against americans and other civilians in iraq are not right and to support them, it will come back to haunt us one day----and quite a few of you guys ridiculed me for that-----so tell me now---how does it feel to see your house on fire today and your brothers and sister mutilated bodies lying on that road.

    One cannot stop rumors. But the GOP spokesmen and the surgeons should not have opened their mouths. Autopsy should have been carried out. As far as I know autopsy is carried out for even those little street accidents and GOP comes up with such a pathetic excuse for avoiding postmortem ?

    It is bound to happen when things like this happen:

    followed by:

    Leading to doubts as below:


    Contradictions raises doubts of a cover up!

    Also Sherry Rehman who washed Benazir Bhutto's body, as per the ritual, before burial claims that there was a bullet wound!

    Somehow Salim (Indian) starts repeating the same... We know the changing rumours... Yet, we know how greedy the media and politicians are... Wasn't India shouting about hijacked aiplane while it was just a test? We have seen more then a few changes in the Lady Di stories and we hear lots of stories about Elvis or Kennedy...

    Hi,

    The contradictions have started due to not doing the job properly. Secondly, the news media also takes up a story and runs with it---they don't want to be second in line to release the news---. The autopsy was "REQUESTED" by the govt. Accordingly Asif Zardari refused it. Should the gvot have accepted this refusal?

    Sherry Rahman is known for starting fires---the govt failed one more time in in following the procedure---or was there any procedure there to follow.

    So what the main thing is that she is dead and those behind it should be brought to justice. But no PP wouldnt let go that easy. Instead of showing unity at this hour, they are putting blames on eachother. Damn you

    It appears the government has lied about the way BB was killed and the people responsible for her death.

    Dr. Mussadiq who operated upon BB (is my fiancee's supervisor) has been pressurized by the government to change his statement about the cause of death.

    I think in these conspiracy theories the media is responsible for them. The media should give the story like it is and not comment and give their personal views. Another negative role that the media has played is that in all the turmoil and chaos that is going on in the streets of Pakistan not once have they asked the people to excercise restraint. The media in my opinion is adding fuel to the fire and I think they should act with responsibility and always keep the national interest in mind, which I think they have failed to do.

    Ice cold,

    Musharraf has recieved bad advice from his advisors quite often---it could be another one of those snafu's.

    It was so simple---follow the procedure----do an autopsy---have neutral observers----in this day and age where video is every where, there will be numerous pictures available to the public in due time. There is no place to hide for the govt.

    You've got something to show Lahori Paa Jee behaved any different before he was bought and paid for ? That Doc Paa Jee speaks of certainly gave a different story earlier. What made him change his stance?

    Lahori paa jee is firmly in the Nawaz camp. It behooves his aspirations to put crap defaming the govt up for his and his master's purposes.

    I also know a few other things that I will not speak of in a open forum. Hence my comments.

    You're only accusing him of bias. Shoot the message.

    Why did Dr. Mussadiq change his stance?
