An Introduction to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari

Time magazine has a profile of Benazir Bhutto's son, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, a 19-year old student at Oxford who along with his father, Asif Ali Zardari, will now lead the Pakistan People's Party (PPP). The profile provides more details of how the turnover was orchestrated.

Per one of his friends at Oxford, his Facebook status on the day his mother was killed read:

"Well behaved women rarely make history."

I know a few women who would agree with that. He later posted this:

"You can imprison a man but not an idea. You can exile a man but not an idea. You can kill a man but not an idea. — Benazir Bhutto."

Good luck, Bilawal.

And on a related note, Rawstory did a summary of a BBC 4 newscast about how Benazir was actually killed and included video from BBC 4. It's worth watching and listening to the entire newstory. It seems very likely that she was killed by the gunman, contrary to the government's protestations which appear to be motivated by a desire to cover up their security failure.
