A Pakistani court issued an arrest warrant for Pakistan’s former President Pervez Musharraf in connection with the 2007 assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

Benazir Bhutto was murdered in December 2007 after a rally as she was waving to supporters.

Pakistani offiicials identified the assassin as a young former madrassa student. Ron Paul blamed the US.

The AP reported:

An anti-terrorism court judge issued an arrest warrant Saturday for former Pakistani military ruler Pervez Musharraf in connection with the 2007 assassination of ex-premier Benazir Bhutto, state-run television reported.

The warrant is the latest legal trouble to face the retired general, a one-time U.S. ally who left Pakistan for Britain in 2008 after being forced out of the presidency he secured in 1999 military coup. Despite his promises to return to Pakistan and lead a new political party, court motions against the former ruler make it increasingly unlikely he will.

Along with issuing the warrant Saturday, Judge Rana Nisar Ahmad also ordered Musharraf to appear before the court on Feb. 19, Pakistan Television reported. Lawyers in the case could not immediately be reached for comment.

Bhutto was killed Dec. 27, 2007, in a gun and suicide bomb blast during a rally weeks after returning to Pakistan to campaign in new elections that Musharraf reluctantly agreed to allow after months of domestic and international pressure.

  1. Okay, I agree that we need to cut a great deal of foriegn aid, particulary to these Islamic cesspools in the Middle East, but Ron Paul needs to shut up. If I want to hear someone blame America for all the wrongs in the world, I’ll listen to Barack Obama.

    Will Ron Paul please shut up and go away?

  2. We need to be prepare for cut foriegn aid now and stop send them to the Middle East. We just don’t know what is going to happen if Egypt will turn to be like Iran.

    That sounds like just about the size of it!

  5. He’s in Britain. I’m sure he’ll be on the next flight for that kangaroo court.

  6. Musharraf may be a crook, but at least he was a fairly friendly crook of ours. Half of the rest of his country are out-right nuts. Seems to be similar to Egypt in that regard.

    oh really??

    [As he sat down with opposition leaders from authoritarian societies
    around the world, he gave voice to his exasperation. "You're not the
    only dissident,"
    Bush told Saad Eddin Ibrahim, a leader in the resistance
    to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. "I too am a dissident in Washington. Bureaucracy in the United States does not help change. It seems that Mubarak succeeded in brainwashing them."]

    more here..

    (just scroll down for more, or not, we’re still a somewhat free country)

    apologies if i read what you wrote wrong..

    point is, Mubarak was no saint, and neither was the US in support of him..

    as it resulted in repression & abuse of the people who deserve better than to be systematically cultured to be enemies of the US & Israel via corrupt authoritarian Arab Regimes (what the Freedom & Democracy movement were thankfully brave enough to take a stand against), think Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat, etc..


  9. She was awesome and super intelligent. She was a professor in an Ivy league college here in USA. I hope they have found her killer. The world lost a lovely, leader when she was murdered.
    It was motivated by sexism.
