You shouldn't keep souvenirs of a killing. You shouldn't have been that sentimental.

Dday over at Digby's place provides a good run-down of U.S. involvement in Pakistani politics and what the Bhutto assassination means to those efforts.

I refer again to my observation made last year that the United States would be much better off if Bush and company did absolutely nothing during their remaining time in office. Absolutely everything they touch turns to shit.

The U.S. should have never pushed Bhutto back into Pakistan if they weren't absolutely certain she would have adequate security while campaigning. While the Pakistani Foreign Minister points his finger at al-qaeda today it's more likely that Musharraf's directly involved.

I can't help but wonder if this is the result the U.S., at least our Vice President, was looking for.
