BBC Standard of Excellence
Very important story to preserve for history and document fully. I’m listening in 2021, and have no concern that it was released in 2018 and thankful that I found it. The assassination was unconscionable and should be solved and prosecuted fully. Nevertheless, I do believe that Bhutto and her father are portrayed in a light more favorable than all relevant facts would dictate, which isn’t relevant to the underlying attack. Time and again this country supports terrorism and is a danger to the world with nuclear weapons
Incredible Background behind the assassination attempts
