Bhutto's assassination: the ugly truth



The above photo is currently fronting the New York Times's web site, where it accompanies a story on Benazir Bhutto's assassination earlier today. But you'll find far more compelling--and disturbing--images over at Wonkette.com.

As Wonkette's Megan Carpentier notes, media images of atrocities like today's suicide bombing tend, more often than not, to obscure the ugly reality of what actually happened. If your stomach is feeling strong, take a look at the photo gallery that accompanies her post. I guarantee you'll end up thinking differently about today's events.

Incidentally, it's not just incidents of terrorism that tend to get visually sugarcoated. US-led invasions do, too.
