Benazir Bhutto: imperfect past tense

Guambat is not at all versed enough in the life and times of Benazir Bhutto to utter more than his sincere regrets that she has been wiped from the pages of today's papers and relegated to the murky history still to be written about the clash of uncivilizations.

But, for all the talk, Guambat has had the gnawing feeling in his not insubstantial gut that there was much, much more to the story than American primetime is barking on about, or even as the likes of Al Jazeera and other closer on the ground sources are providing.

So, finding something that resonates with his prejudice, Guambat passes along this article from The Guardian, which must be read along with its comments to sort of describe Guambat's suspicions that the world is much more complex, shaded and surprising than we assume on our daily rounds.
