Pakistan: Al-Qaeda claims Bhutto's death

spokesperson for the al-Qaeda terrorist network has claimed responsibility for the death on Thursday of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
“We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahadeen,” Al-Qaeda’s commander and main spokesperson Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone call from an unknown location, speaking in faltering English. Al-Yazid is the main al-Qaeda commander in Afghanistan.
It is believed that the decision to kill Bhutto, who is the leader of the opposition Pakistan People's Party (PPP), was made by al-Qaeda No. 2, the Egyptian doctor, Ayman al-Zawahiri in October.
But there are other candidates for the one who pulled the trigger.

Let's think about this report. This throws a damper on our Iran Adventure plans - no al-Qaeda in Iran. Now we may have to focus our attention on Afghanistan and Pakistan.

This clearly plays into the hands of Mussharraf - a great reason to re-institute martial law. Also plays into the hands of our politicos who love to play the "islamo-fascist". fear. "they will be here if we don't kill them there" crowd.
