News is hitting throughout the morning. The Pakistani government is saying Benazir Bhutto died from hitting her head on the back of the sunroof as the result of the shots and explosion yesterday. They are saying she was not shot. Her vehicle apparently accelerated at the sign of violence and that forced her against the back of the roof and she suffered a fatal head injury. Who is to know how it happened? Pakistan also released a statement blaming Al Qaeda for the assassination.
In the other piece of news President Bush says he will now veto the Defense Authorization Act. This will be his newest attempt to cut funding for his war in Iraq. Now, at this late hour, he is objecting to a provision in the bill allowing Americans to sue for damages suffered under Saddam Hussein's regime. The current Iraqi government is objecting and George W. Bush, at this late hour, is folding to their demands.
