NEWS: Pentagon advisor concerned about Pakistan's nuclear arsenal in wake of Bhutto assassination
A Pentagon advisor and retired Army officer believes that the assassination of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto will destabilize that country and put it at a greater risk for "Talibanization."

Retired Army Lt. Colonel Bob Maginnis also believes that the United States shares some of the responsibility for the current mess in Pakistan because the U.S. brokered the deal that brought Bhutto home. The U.S. objective was to keep Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in power, says Maginnis, because according to President Bush, Pervez has been a "good ally" in the war on terror.

However, in mid-2007 the U.S. pushed for a deal that would keep Musharraf as president, but require him to step down as military head. Bhutto would then be able to come home with a chance to become Prime Minister. But the Pentagon advisor says now the country could move in the wrong direction. "The Taliban is starting to take seed all over Pakistan and you have an effort that could reverse what we'd hoped would be trends toward democracy," says a concerned Maginnis.

Maginnis is also worried about Pakistan's nuclear arsenal. "The last thing the region needs is Pakistan with its eighty nuclear weapons and a phalanx of ballistic missiles falling into the hands of Islamic radicals. That could happen," he warns.

The Pentagon advisor says while Bhutto had at one time supported the Taliban, she recently distanced herself from them and condemned their terrorist acts. He says that her switch may have played a role in her death.
