On March 5, Esquire published an interview with William Fallon, who at that time was in charge of U.S. Central Command. In the interview, Esquire asked him if the return of Benazir Bhutto to Pakistan would improve the situation there. In response, Fallon shook his head and said, “Better forget that.”
Less than two months later, Bhutto was assassinated. Based on Fallon’s response, it appears that America knew Bhutto would be assassinated.
