Wellstone's Murder -- Connecting the Dots?

we mourn by seeking truth
ONE>> On Friday, October 25, 2002 the airplane that was carrying Democratic Senator Paul Wellstone crashed, killing him and others.

TWO>> On Friday, October 25, 2002, Daniel Grebler posted an article on the Reuters newswire entitled: "Short-Term Bonds Up on Wellstone Death". The article stated: "Short-dated U.S. Treasuries rose on Friday on news that Sen. Paul Wellstone, a liberal Democrat from Minnesota running for re-election next month, was killed in a plane crash. Analysts said his death raised the odds that the Republicans could take control of the Senate, which would strengthen President Bush's militant stance against Iraq."

THREE>> The airplane that Wellstone was flying in was a privately owned 11-seat King Air A-100 twin-engine turboprop that was manufactured by Raytheon Aircraft.

FOUR>> One of Raytheon's main customers is the US Government/Military.

FIVE>> Senator Paul Wellstone recently voted against a resolution authorizing the use of force in Iraq. In fact, he was the only Senator facing a tough re-election challenge to vote no, defying the wishes of President Bush.

SIX>> Was Wellstone's airplane sabotaged by the US Government/Military (which is ran by Republicans who want to go to war with Iraq)? What about Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, which are major military airplane manufacturers? Did one of the three companies mentioned above sabotage Wellstone's plane in order to kill Wellstone to insure a war with Iraq? Did one of the three companies mentioned above wish to neutralize Raytheon by having one of its airplanes crash in a high-profile situation?

parttimeskeptic

disinformation about Raytheon:

the particular aircraft that Wellstone crashed in--

Beech King Air 100

was manufactured in 1979. This was long *before* the Beech Aircraft Company had been absorbed by Raytheon Corporation.

so, even though Raytheon IS a warmongering bloodthirsty US Government/military contractor--allusions that this particular airplane could have been somehow sabotaged at the factory are unfounded (although, it was probably monkeywrenched in another manner).

the rest of this posting smacks of classic COINTELPRO-style semi-coherent disinformation "One of Raytheon's main customers is the US Government/Military."--so are virtually every major company that manufactures commercial transport aircraft . . . etc blah blah blah

. . . when I heard the news the first image in my mind was John Ashcroft telling someone "this time, make sure you get the wife."

While I sincerely doubt anything like that is really going on, the parrallels between Sen. Welstones and (Missouri) Gov. Mel Carnahans deaths should be looked into.
