Benazir Bhutto

In a particularly astonishing bit of news, we've learned that no autopsy was performed on Ms. Bhutto's remains.

In a world of conspiracy theories, I would have thought that the investigation of any assasination would learn from America's experience with President Kennedy, and be painstakingly thorough, with thousands of photographs and peer reveiws by the world's best pathologists.

Instead, no autopsy. Weird, shocking, astonishing. In an area of the world where grudges are kept for centuries, this sets up 500 years of mistrust, suspicion, martrydom, coups, and revenge.
