Mike Connell's death

David Cogswell makes the following point:

Suspicious Circumstances -- Whenever a person who is a key figure in political events is killed, there is a great hush, a blanket of discouragement upon any speculation or attempt to find a political significance in the circumstances of the death. All such deaths in plane crashes of significant politicial figures whose existence was a threat to certain interests, are just assumed to be random happenings. But this death of Mike Connell, the Rove-Bush computer handyman, only a month and a half after he testified in Ohio about allegations of voting maching rigging is certainly very worthy of close scrutiny.
A July 24 story in
Brad Blog said that Connell's lawyer sent a letter to Attorney General Mukasey requesting protection for Connell because Rove was threatening him if he did not take the fall for the vote fraud case in Ohio. This is very serious, very hot stuff and very close to Rove, which means close to Bush, and you don't mess with these guys unless you are very well protected. Even the Libby prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald stopped short when his investigation reached Cheney. There is so much hanging on this case that it looks like if Connell had not died in a plane crash they would have had to murder him or risk the collapse of the Bush crime empire.

It's from Headblast and it's the posting entitled Winter Solstice, December 21, 2008.

Look, we would have no difficulty suspecting political foul play if it happened in any other country. Do we really so believe in American exceptionalism that we consider our own politicians to be too virtuous to engage in offing those whom they consider a genuine threat?

    I don't believe the politicians in the current administration are too virtuous for ANYthing!
