The spark in the powder keg

Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated.

Here Sir David Frost interviews Benazir Bhutto about a prior attempt on her life.  She was killed today by a suicide attacker who shot her and then blew himself up, killing at least another 14 of her supporters in the process.

The NYTimes has some updated information, as they can get it at the moment.

Condi Rice and the US State Department have been working behind-the-scenes with the former prime minister to work on a potential power-sharing arrangement with the increasingly weakened Musharrif government.  This is a spark in a powder keg that was already hot and ready to blow.

What a freakin' mess.
