Musharraf Blames Bhutto

Musharraf: Bhutto bears responsibility for death

I guess when all else fails, blame the victim.

In an interview to be aired Sunday on "60 Minutes," Musharraf said that Benazir Bhutto was in part to blame for her own death because she chose to waive to a crowd of her supporters though the open sunroof of her car. Musharraf also claimed that his government did everything possible to provide security for her. "She was given more security than any other person," Musharraf claimed.

Really? If you look at the video of her assassination, at the crowds of people swarming around her vehicle, and compare it to video of a the security around, say, President Bush's motorcades the differences are clear. Musharraf himself travels in a highly secure, multi-vehicle entourage. Bhutto had an SUV and no uniformed security in sight. Where then was the security Musharraf claimed his government provided.

Bhutto's widower, Asif Ali Zardari, has called for the UN to lead an investigation into her assassination.
