Bush: “The United States Strongly Condemns This Cowardly Act By Murderous Extremists”
Today President Bush extended condolences to the family and friends of all those who were killed today by Islamic fundamentalists in Pakistan. The intended target of the cowardly suicide bombing was once again Benazir Bhutto, who was one of the dead.
MSNBC reports that Bhutto was shot twice, once in the neck and once in the chest, as she was leaving a rally. The shooter then blew himself up in tradition with the standard Islamic extremist M.O. While some of Bhutto’s supporters are blaming the Pakistani government, especially Musharaff. Bhutto’s actual party is not officially blaming the government, but they are pointing out Bhutto’s previous statements regarding jihadists, such as al-Qaida, who have influence in Pakistan’s military.
