al Qaeda assassinates Bhutto

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

No one should be surprised to hear that al Qaeda has already admitted culpability (I'm not going to use the tepid "claimed responsibility") for the assassination of former Pakistani PM Benazir Bhutto (h/t: El Supremo at DU):

A spokesperson for the al-Qaeda terrorist network has claimed responsibility for the death on Thursday of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

"We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahadeen," Al-Qaeda's commander and main spokesperson Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone call from an unknown location, speaking in faltering English.

After they scrape the murderer's remains off the pavement, they should wrap him in a bacon shroud, stuff a pork chop in his mouth and a hot dog up his ass, burn him on a lard-fueled pyre, and then scatter his ashes in the feed trough at a pig farm.

The same fate should await Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid and the other conspirators as soon as they are apprehended, tried, and convicted.

How's that for cleanliness?

update (3:04pm):
A quick perusal of the Quran--I use the Pickthall translation (700KB PDF)--will yield several verses (2:173, 5:3, 6:145, and 16:115) where Allah states that he will forgive transgressions that are "driven by necessity," but it would still be rather poetic punishment, no?

update 2 (3:13pm):
Andrew Sullivan sounds a note of skepticism:

Until we know more, it seems to me that al Qaeda's responsibility is actually the more optimistic scenario. If Islamists within the military or ISI did this, then we have the possibility that this is the beginning of something more ominous than the surface event. The collapse of Pakistan into a Jihadist nuclear power is the great nightmare. Here's hoping that however grim this news, the worst isn't yet to come.
