Pakistan Government Claims Bhutto Died From Self-Inflicted Bump on Head

CNN on the Pakistan government’s cockamamie explanation of her death:

CNN national security analyst Ken Robinson, who worked in U.S. intelligence in Pakistan during the Clinton administration, said he suspects Bhutto’s enemies are attempting to control her legacy by minimizing the attack’s role in her demise.

“They’re trying to deny her a martyr’s death, and in Islam, that’s pretty important,” Robinson said.
