73. And you keep drinking the Kool-Aid.
Bhutto was taken down by Islamic militants within her own country who regularly employ assassination as a tool. Her enemies were legion. In contrast here, she was somebody whom the Bush administration and the one to follow saw and would see as a good business partner for the United States and its interests.

Want an oil pipeline across Pakistan? Energy companies preferred Bhutto, who would have rooted out the extremists and kept a pipeline safe.

Want to keep Pakistani nukes in the hands of someone rational? Security experts here were optimistic about Bhutto.

Want someone with superstar status to bring democracy back to an Islamic nation? Believe it or not, our government was pulling for Bhutto.

This time, the tin-foil hat brigade has it all wrong. Pakistan and Iraq are two different matters.
