HILLARY FLUBS on Bhutto— Media Ignores
“She wrote a very moving autobiography which begins with the assassination of her father who had been the leader of Pakistan and was killed as well. I grieve for her family particularly her two children.”
Senator Hillary Clinton
On the Assassination of Benazir Bhutto
December 27, 2007
Clearly, Senator Clinton did not know Benazir Bhutto as well as she would like you to think…
Hillary spoke of her very, very close relationship with Benazir Bhutto yesterday after Bhutto’s assassination while campaigning in Denison, Iowa:
“I also want to start on a very serious note if I could with the assassination of Benazir Bhutto today. The world once again is reminded of the dangers facing those who seek democracy and free elections in Pakistan and elsewhere in areas that are rife with conflict and violence and extremism and anti-democratic forces.
I have known Benazir Bhutto for a dozen years and I knew her as a leader. I knew her as someone who’s willing to take risks, to pursue democracy on behalf of the people of Pakistan.
She wrote a very moving autobiography which begins with the assassination of her father who had been the leader of Pakistan and was killed as well. I grieve for her family particularly her two children.”
The full amusing video is HERE.
The New York Post reported yesterday on the very, very close bond between the two women and mothers:
“We stayed in touch throughout the years,” Clinton told a crowd at the Denison, Iowa, Volunteer Fire Department. “We always talked about her commitment to bringing democracy back to Pakistan and we talked about our children.”
But, obviously, they only talked about 2 of her children.
Sweetness and Light notes that Hillary met Benazir Bhutto exactly once- in 1995.

UPDATE: Powerline has more confusion from Hillary on Pakistan.
