A Matter Of Opinion

Trudy Rubin: The Pakistan report

Doug Floyd waited all day yesterday Philadelphia Inquirer’s Trudy Rubin’s dispatch from Pakistan. It was worth the wait. She’s in Pakistan, was scheduled to interview Benazir Bhutto on Thursday evening. If you read little else about the assassination, read Rubin’s report here.


One of Pakistan’s top experts on militant Islam, journalist Ahmed Rashid, told me: “I think (the killing) has all the hallmarks of al-Qaida. It was well planned, well trained. The country is now in a state of chaos. The country is an al-Qaida target now.”
Benazir Bhutto foresaw this danger. And now she is gone.
