Unreel, you’re referring to a long string of political assassinations which have helped to keep the more violently corrupt faction of our government in power for all these years.
The string started with the shooting of President John F. Kennedy. Much of the evidence points to a Louisiana mobster organizing the killing, and of organizing the make-up murder of the patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, when the police couldn’t kill the patsy outright in a shootout on the day of the murder.
A jury declared that Dr. Martin Luther King’s murderers are probably still at large.
Bobby Kennedy was murdered the night that everyone knew that he’d get the Presidency.
Paul Wellstone, possibly the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate and a possible presidential candidate, died in a plane crash.
John Kennedy Jr., the President’s son, possibly a man with a bright political future, died in a plane crash.
Numbers of foreign democratically elected presidents have been killed by the CIA.
Roman Catholic Archbishop Oscar Romero was gunned down on his church altar by friends of the CIA.
Former priest and wildly popular Haitian President Jean-Paul Aristide was kidnapped by the CIA and dropped off halfway around the world in an African country. My guess is that the CIA didn’t want to gun down yet another holy man.
A number of us share your fear that the jackals of this world, the people who only like a democracy when they’re looting it, would commit political murder once again. I still don’t like your comment.
