A paranoid progressive fails to point his finger at the far more plausible culprit:
In 1968, when [Robert] Kennedy was gaining momentum and piling up primary victories it looked as though he would win the presidential nomination. But before he could be safely ensconced inside “the bubble” of 24-hour federal protection he was assassinated. And his progressive challenge to the war in Vietnam and to poverty at home was stopped in its tracks.
In 2008, Obama is gaining momentum, and hopefully people inside his organization are cognizant of the fact that he constitutes a very real threat to the likes of Blackwater, Dyncorps, Halliburton, and the hundreds of other private companies currently profiteering from the Iraq occupation.
There are two major flaws with this theory. First, Obama not only supports the various wars and occupations, but has openly advocated expanding them to Pakistan. Blackwater and company arguably have more to gain than fear from an Obama victory. Second, as much as I despise it, it’s not the second Bush administration that was known for the many mysterious deaths surrounding it. That would be the administration of a certain individual who just happens to be married to Obama’s chief rival….
