I have the feeling this is going to have a larger impact on the US than it should. At this point Al-Qaida is claiming the assasination was their doing, which a bad situation all around. But, a brief scan of her info on Wikipedia (I know not the best source, but it is a quick overview) shows that she is/was not the most stellar politician. Elected twice and removed from office twice for corruption. Her SELF-IMPOSED exile sounds more like running from the law until the charges were dropped. It may have been great that she was the first elected female official to run a muslim state, but she seemed to have helped herself more than her cause (not unlike most politicans).
