(CNN) – A court in Pakistan issued an arrest warrant Saturday for former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in connection with the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, a public prosecutor told CNN.

Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali said on the Anti Terrorist Court in Rawalpindi issued the warrant.

Prosecutors claim that an investigation shows Musharraf was responsible for not providing adequate protection for Bhutto and has not responded to a prosecutor’s request to answer questions — hence the court-ordered arrest warrant.

Bhutto, who spent many years in exile, was assassinated in 2007 as she campaigned against Musharraf for the presidency.

Some have accused Musharraf of being involved in the assassination, but Musharraf denies any involvement. Late last year, Pakistani authorities arrested two police officials in the case.

My Commentary: Indeed, We are all Khaled Said… in spite of the fact that most don’t even know his name. The Egyptian Revolution started long before Jan. 25, but this date will forever mark the beginning of the end for Mubarak’s corrupt, brutal, murderous regime! Let us pray that it is also the end for US-puppet dictators in Egypt, as well!

(Yahoo News)  The Swiss government on Friday froze any assets belonging to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak or his family in Switzerland.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lars Knuchel said the order took effect immediately but gave no details on what bank accounts or other assets Mubarak or his family might have in Switzerland.

He spoke as pro-democracy demonstrators in Cairo were jubilantly celebrating the announcement that Mubarak has resigned after nearly three decades of authoritarian rule and handed power over to the military.

“(The government) wants to avoid any risk of misappropriation of state-owned Egyptian assets,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It also forbid the sale of any assets, especially real estate holdings.

My Commentary: According to Switzerland’s Foreign Ministry, “(The government) wants to avoid any risk of misappropriation of state-owned Egyptian assets.”

It’s too bad that the criminal Mubarak has already swindled and amassed a fortune far greater than the contents of just Switzerland’s banks! Just last week, his family quietly slinked off to the UK with an undisclosed amount of Egypt’s riches!

(Al Jazeera) Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has resigned from his post, handing over power to the armed forces.

Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address that the president was “waiving” his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the armed forces.

Suleiman’s short statement was received with a roar of approval and by celebratory chanting and flag-waving from a crowd of hundreds of thousands in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, as well by pro-democracy campaigners who attended protests across the country on Friday.

The crowd in Tahrir chanted “We have brought down the regime”,  while many were seen crying, cheering and embracing one another.

Ron Paul Supporters Crash War Reunion of War Criminals Cheney and Rumsfeld

‘War Criminal!’: Ron Paul Backers Crash Cheney-Rumsfeld Reunion:

(Raw Story) Supporters of libertarian Republican Ron Paul shouted down former Vice President Dick Cheney at a conservative conference Thursday, in a sign of a growing foreign policy rift on the American right.

Cheney had appeared on the first day of the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference to introduce Donald Rumsfeld, the former Bush-era defense secretary who was scheduled to receive this year’s “Defender of the Constitution Award.”

That didn’t sit well with “Team Paul,” supporters of Rep. Ron Paul who have long called for an end to the US’s foreign wars.

“Where’s bin Laden?” one heckler shouted as Cheney stood at the podium to introduce Rumsfeld.

“War criminal!” another shouted out, prompting a heated reaction from the crowd.

The specter of a Republican vice president being called a “war criminal” at a conservative conference was so unexpected that it prompted TalkingPointsMemo’s Evan McMorris-Santoro to describe it as “what a Cheney-Rumsfeld hug at the Netroots Nation convention might look like.”
