Sad to say, but I knew this would happen when she returned to Pakistan. The Taliban would never allow a strong woman in that country to live long.

To paraphrase a couple lines from a very lovely song by Don McLean:

"But I could have told you, BENAZIR,
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you"
