re: "Did The US Betray Bhutto?"
"After sending Benazir Bhutto back to Pakistan to shore up Musharraf's transition to democracy, the State Department did little to address the security deficiencies of which Bhutto complained on several occasions. They insisted that Musharraf would ensure her protection and then failed to press Musharraf to do so"
"We helped broker that deal to send Bhutto back to Pakistan, and we had at least a moral obligation to help address the obvious and serious security issues. Relying on Musharraf exclusively under those circumstances would have been foolish and naive. While Musharraf himself had little to gain from her death and a lot more to lose, that may not be true for all those in his administration, and especially for elements of the ISI.
The US had even more to lose. She was our best option, and one might think that State would have kept that in mind. Her death has made the situation much worse than before her arrival, and if a little pressure from us could have prevented it, then the failure to provide it doesn't border on incompetence, it invades it with gusto."
