HighOnCraic: According to conspiracy theorists, Bill Clinton was responsible for the murder of a guy named Gandy Baugh (google "The Clinton Death List").  According to conspiracy theorists, Obama somehow resurrected Mr. Baugh a few years later just so he could murder him a second time (google "The Obama Death List").

Since Obama has some kind of supernatural abilities that we can't understand, it's best to assume that any death can be reasonably attributed to his dark, magical power, even those that occurred before Obama was born.

I may be biased because I have to watch Burn Notice all the time so I dismiss 100% of what goes on on that show -- the explosions, assassinations and ridiculous spy commentary, all of it.

I know I shouldn't ask but, Why do you have to watch burn notice all the time?

BF likes the show, likes me to be with him all the time so ... I get way more Burn Notice than I would ever watch on my own.

Gyrfalcon: I can more easily believe he could have been killed for something he was GOING TO REPORT ON than he was killed for something he ALREADY REPORTED ABOUT. Nobody gets stealth murdered by covert government operatives for something they let out of the bag five years ago, no matter how embarrassing it might have been to anyone at the time.

That said, even the FBI doesn't stealth murder an obnoxious reporter by burning his car to the ground in a huge fire in the middle of Beverly Hills. That's more of a gang or drug killing, assuming it wasn't just a regular horrifying high-speed car crash.

GeneralJim: At some point, a threshold is passed, and, as Jon Stewart put it, the burden of proof shifts.  No matter what batshiat conspiracy theory anyone comes up with, now the government has to treat it as a serious claim.  So, a death that appears to be a strange coincidence needs to be investigated thoroughly.
Jon Stewart's rant.


But remember, kids. Jon Stewart is a partisan hack who never, ever, EVER criticizes the Obama administration and only makes fun of Conservatives.

Not making an accusation at you here, Jim, just using the deserved criticism in a point, debunking an oft-repeated tidbit of ultra-idiocy parroted by certain "Libertarians."

MmmmBacon: GeneralJim: MmmmBacon: The GOP will seize onto this death and turn it into Obama's "Vince Foster" moment. Whether it is true or not.
Just for my own curiosity about how to interpret your post, how do you see Vince Foster's death?

He killed himself, if memory serves, but that's not the point, is it? The GOP will use the death of this reporter to try to smear Obama, and Democrats in general, in 2014, 2016 and beyond. Why? Because it worked against the Clinton's to some degree years ago. The GOP is good at getting their base riled up with conspiracy tales, and this will be one they use, you can count on that.


In fact, it worked so well last time that one could almost think the GOP arranged.... ohmigawd.

yeah! you can't trust those cops or FBI at all!

"a law enforcement official told the Post that...."

Oh....So I guess you don't trust the cops UNLESS anunnamed one says something bad about the FBI. then, logically, you don't trust the FBI unless an unnamed FBI agent says something bad about the NSA. So basically, don't trust anyofficial government types ever...Unless they say something to want to hear.

It's definitely not how the FBI would do it. And I think the CIA would only do it that way, if it was trying to pin it on the NSA. Some people think those two are in a spat right now.
