Mr. Musharraf and his supporters in the Bush administration, meanwhile, were coming under increasing pressure, inside and outside Pakistan, to open up the inquiry. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat of New York, said Friday that the United States should call for an independent investigation.
Wow. And I'll bet that Pakistan is just shaking in its boots out of fear that the United States may "investigate."
This is the same United States that has been investigating and pursuing Osama bin Forgotten for more than 6 years. What have they found? Nothing.
This is the same United States that has been investigating and purusing the persons involved in mailing anthrax to Capitol Hill. What have they found? Nothing.
This is the same United States, in the form of the Congress, that has been holding hearings and investigating all manner of illegal activity on the part of the Bush Administration for nearly a year. What have they turned up? Nothing.
There used to be a time when the threat or even the thought of the threat of the United States getting involved in things was enough to snap errant countries and individuals back in line. Now the thought of a United States investigation of anything brings a collective yawn.
I hope those who murdered Bhutto are hiding out in a mansion in Khrachi right now saying "bring em on" to this foolish suggestion.
