Amazing Incompetence In Pakistan

This frankly stuns me. One of the country’s leaders is assassinated…and the doctors don’t perform an autopsy?

New Delhi: Mystery shrouds the death of former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto. In an explosive revelation, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz on Friday said that Bhutto did not die of bullet wounds.
Nawaz said that Bhutto died from a head injury. At least seven doctors from the Rawalpindi General Hospital – where the leader was rushed immediately after the attack – say there were no bullet marks on Bhutto’s body.
The doctors have submitted a report to the Pakistan government in which they say that no post-mortem was performed on Bhutto’s body and they had not received any instructions to perform one.
“The report says she had head injuries – an irregular patch – and the X-ray doesn’t show any bullet in the head. So it was probably the shrapnel or any other thing has struck her in her said. That damaged her brain, causing it to ooze and her death. The report categorically ssyas there’s no wound other than that,” Nawaz told a Pakistani news channel.

Are you kidding me? “Gee, no one told us to do an autopsy”? How could this possibly happen, given the huge political ramifications of her murder? How will the government possibly defend itself against the conspiracy theories that this will spawn is beyond me.
Is there some RoP prohibition against cutting open dead bodies? Mind you, that would be odd since there seems to be no such prohibition against blowing living bodies into little bits.

  1. Well, it IS a FEMALE dead body. If they’re not allowed to examine them alive, why bother afterward?

    The Religion of Pieces™ requires burial within a day of death, so I believe that autopsies are not routine in Islamic nations. But, yeah, you’d think that a prominent murder victim would get one, just to be sure of the facts, regardless of local custom.
    But then, I ain’t no multiculturist.

  3. This would seem to suggest that the actual cause of death is of no concern whatsoever to Musharrif and Co., me thinks… perhaps an indicator that the official government view is that of results superceding methods. Musharrif is between a rock and an Al Qaeda place. Obamawhammah has since recommended that we cut off all aid and incentives to Mushy to bring him around to our way of thinking… Boy, I’ll bet that will work… NOT!
    Pakistan is utter lawlessness at its purest. We screwed up bigtime by encouraging Bhutto to return and not making serious, probably best done covertly, efforts at keeping her alive long enough to maybe beat Mushy in the once so close elections. But covert doesn’t seem to be in our vocabulary any longer, does it? All an evaporated memory now.
    While I believe it very likely that Mushy was complicit in Benazir’s murder, that will not keep him alive an instant past his usefulness to AQ… and that should be of huge concern to us given the 70 odd nukers that the Pakies possess. When he gets hit, the gates are open. Very, very bad situation.
    Meanwhile, Jorge is heading over to Pally World to be “defended” by the Al Aqsa Brigades. These people must be consuming an entire bowl full of hallucinogenics for breakfast daily! Where are we going to be… socially, economically and militarily… when OUR President gets whacked???
    It is as if we have abandoned any efforts to make any correct moves and are instead trying to select the worst.
