What Didn't Kill Benazir Bhutto

I happened to glance at cnn.com today and couldn't help but notice all of the contradictory headlines about Benazir Bhutto's death.

The Interior Ministry of Pakistan has so far given the following causes for Bhutto's death:

  • a fractured skull from hitting her head on her car's sunroof lever
  • a fractured skill from hitting her head on her car's sunfroof lever due to the explosion of a bomb
  • a bullet
  • a bomb
  • schrapnel
  • shot by a suicide bomber (why would the suicide bomber shoot her rather than blow her up? I'm just sayin')

Then in the upper right corner (see green arrow) is the headline: "Outstretched gun fires 3 times at Bhutto". The video that comes up when you click on that link is so blurry and dark it's impossible to tell if that video was even taken on the day and at the location where Bhutto died.

Then under the story about the confusion surrounding Bhutto's death is yet another video where a doctor describes Bhutto's wound as "a big wound that usually occurs when something big with a lot of speed hits that area."

Well, that really clears things up. And to think that Bhutto had been critical of Pakistan's current President Musharraf's government for not doing enough to protect her. What a paranoid...oh, wait...

Update


About four hours after I posted this, CNN.com changed it's headline:

When they don't have muslims to attack, they'll attack each other...vicious people...and these are their highest members.

BETHLEHEM, West Bank — Robed Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests went at each other with brooms and stones inside the Church of the Nativity on Thursday as long-standing rivalries erupted in violence during holiday cleaning.

The basilica, built over the grotto in Bethlehem where Christians believe Jesus was born, is administered jointly by Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic authorities. Any perceived encroachment on one group's turf can set off vicious feuds.

On Thursday, dozens of priests and cleaners came to the fortress-like church to scrub and sweep the floors, walls and rafters ahead of the Armenian and Orthodox Christmas, celebrated in the first week of January. Thousands of tourists visited the church this week for Christmas celebrations.

But the cleanup turned ugly after some of the Orthodox faithful stepped inside the Armenian church's section, touching off a scuffle between about 50 Greek Orthodox and 30 Armenians.

Palestinian police, armed with batons and shields, quickly formed a human cordon to separate the two sides so the cleaning could continue, then ordered an Associated Press photographer out of the church.

Four people, some with blood running from their faces, were slightly wounded.
