WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) issued the following statement after learning of the death of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Bhutto was killed in Rawalpindi, Pakistan in a suicide attack following a campaign rally.
“This is a very dangerous moment for the world,” Kucinich said. “Benazir Bhutto represented a courageous effort to bring principles of liberty to Pakistan. She was truly dedicated to the people of Pakistan. “The United States must change its policy direction in the region. It must stop adding fuel to the fire.” Kucinich met with Bhutto several times over the years in both Washington, D.C. and New York City.
