The Bush Administration “condemned former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto to death” by ignoring warnings from that she would “almost certainly be assassinated” if she returned to her native country, intelligence sources tell Capitol Hill Blue.
An assessment prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency said Bhutto would not be safe if she returned to Pakistan but the Bush White House ignored the warning and dispatched Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to London to persuade Bhutto to go home and seek political office.
“If the former Prime Minister were to return to Pakistan, she would almost certainly be assassinated,” said the CIA assessment, prepared by agency operatives on the ground in that country.
“The Bush Administration murdered Benazir Bhutto by convincing her to return to Pakistan,” a former CIA operative said this week. “She was doomed the second the set foot on Pakastani soil. The White House condemned her to death by talking her into returning.”
