U.N. Report Claims Pakistani Military Bungled Bhutto Murder Probe

"The Commission was mystified by the efforts of certain high- ranking Pakistani government authorities to obstruct access to military and intelligence sources, as revealed in their public declarations."

President Musharraf's spokesperson has fired back at the commission and their accusations of negligence against the Pakistani government. Maj. Gen Rashid Qureshi (ret) called the report a "pack of lies." "This chief U.N. investigator was not the relative of Sherlock Homes."

"There can be no adequate security against a suicide attack. There were two suicide attacks against President Musharraf and he survived because he was inside a bullet proof car. Unfortunately Benazir Bhutto was outside the vehicle," Qureshi said.

The U.N. sanctioned group was not tasked with a criminal investigation, but instead to "carry out a fact-finding inquiry that would be helpful in shedding light on the deeply tragic and traumatizing event for Pakistan and its people," Munoz said.

As part of the report's conclusion, the UN group calls on the murder of Bhutto to be given more attention and for "Pakistani authorities to carry out a serious, credible criminal investigation that determines who conceived, ordered and executed this heinous crime of historic proportions, and brings those responsible to justice."
