Pakistan Apologizes For Lying About Bhutto's Cause of Death

On New Years Eve I was having dinner with my friend Dr. Ted James (among many distinguished others). As the evening developed the conversation turned to the Bhutto assassination. Dr. James said flatly that the official version of her death made no sense and that humans simply cannot get the kind of fatal skull fracture Bhutto is supposed to have had, at least under those circumstances.

I was polite but I demurred. Surely if your head hits something hard enough it will fracture in all sorts of interesting ways.

Score one for Dr. James.
