Bhutto 'Blocked from Hiring US Bodyguards'

Now why would the government of Pakistan refuse to allow Bhutto to hire top notch bodyguards? The answer is obvious. It's the same reason they wouldn't allow foreigners from helping in the investigation of Bhutto's assassination. And the same reason they didn't allow an autopsy and keep changing the cause of her death:
Benazir Bhutto was so fearful for her life that she tried to hire British and American security experts to protect her, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

But the plans collapsed because President Pervez Musharraf refused to allow the foreign contractors to operate in Pakistan, according to senior aides.

"She asked to bring in trained security personnel from abroad," said Mark Siegel, her US representative. "In fact she and her husband repeatedly tried to get visas for such protection, but they were denied by the government of Pakistan."
