FYI, in addition to Brown and Carnahan, Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, much of Lynard Skynard and Ricky Nelson were all killed in plane crashes.
Apparently GWB's misdeeds are only now coming to light.

Lets not forget a Amelia Earhart, and Glenn Miller.

What? GW wasn't born then, why you are the same corporate goon squad that is covering for him.

Seriously, I was in St. Louis the day Carnahan's plane went down about 100 miles to the south. The weather was horrible. Sort of a Foggy Freeze. You couldn't see the tops of 10 story buildings. That is how bad is was. Plus, his son was the pilot with a fairly new plane twin engine plane. So it wasn't like he was a pro pilot or something.

But what do I know I'm just a DNC plant...

Don't forget stevie ray Vaughn too..


You know there was a story about Ron Brown being killed by Bill Clinton, because he was the bag man for the DNC and was going to be indicted by the independent counsels
office over the 1996 campaign funding issues.

Anyway, the story goes that some Serb, or Bosnian wherever he was flying into was had been paid to climb up into the mountains near the airport, and disable the outer ILS beacon, then rebroadcast another one making it appear to the ILS control in the cockpit that the plane was on the glide path to the airport, when it was actually headed for a mountain. After the crash, Then the Serb showed up dead. This story was told by his widow or someone.

Then there was a story that Ron Brown was found to have a small lead bullet in his head, the x-rays were taken by the Serbs, then the official x-rays didn't have the bullet, or something. Sorry my memory is any better than it is. These conspiracy theories all sort of run together in my head.


I read this in the American spectator or something back about 4 months after it happened.

I like the one about JFK Jr., in that Hillary had him killed because he was going to run for the senate in NY. Hillary would gnaw her left arm off to further her right one, but even this seems a bit much for her.

Plus, everything I had ever heard about JFK jr. was he had no interest in politics at all. Once again, a novice pilot in bad weather, not relying on his instruments, but on his 5 senses.. It seems that gets you killed more often than not.

I think about half of these guys were getting baked with the pilots, or the pilots were getting their "peto tube" calibrated by some blonde when they should have been flying an aircraft..
