Just before her death, Ms. Bhutto warned that she could see al Qaeda “marching on Islamabad in two or four years.”
In the meantime, Bhutto is worried about another kind of fallout from the phony vaccination program led by the Pakistani doctor.

Ms. Bhutto was a flawed leader but she may have been the last really good chance at keeping a moderate Pakistan alive.
Bhutto was born in Kabul in 1982, while her father, Murtaza Bhutto, was in exile from Pakistan.

“We may very well be the last country on earth with polio now as a result,” says Bhutto.
For them, being a woman with a Western education was enough reason to hate Bhutto with a passion.
