Wellstone Was Murdered
In "American Assassination," two professors explain how.
Senator Paul Wellstone was, ''the first 1960s radical elected to the
U.S. Senate.'' In Senate Race 2002, the White House made defeating
Wellstone priority #1. Karl Rove hand-picked arch Republican Norm
Coleman to run against him. Despite massive funding, Coleman was
trailing the popular Wellstone two weeks before election day.
Then, tragedy struck. On the morning of October 25th, 2002, Wellstone
was killed after a mysterious communication cut-out and crash of his
small aircraft. He died alongside his wife Sheila, their daughter
Marcia, three staff members, and two pilots, while trying to land at
Minnesota's Eveleth airfield. CNN's Wolf Blitzer insisted to his
reporter at the scene that foul weather was the lethal factor in the
crash, despite the statements to the contrary from the CNN
correspondent. To this day, the public tends to blame the weather.
Ph.D. Professors James Fetzer and Don "Four Arrows" Jacobs present the
harrowing truth. The weather didn't bring down Senator Wellstone. Nor
were the two pilots incompetent, as the ridiculous report of the
National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) eventually claimed.
The facts point elsewhere: the FBI happened to arrive at the remote
rural crash scene a startling two hours after the crash. Did they know
about it in advance? The FBI forbade the ambulance and fire teams to
take photos. Even the AP photographer on hand was intimidated, delayed
and then highly monitored. For some reason, a member of the U.S.
Capitol Police Dignitary Protection Division was also present.
Why did these representatives of law enforcement illegally remove
evidence before the NTSB arrived to investigate, seven hours later?
Why did the FBI state that they were treating the site as a "crime
scene" although there were "no indications of any criminal activity?"
How could the FBI swiftly conclude and state publicly, before NTSB
arrived, that there was "no evidence of terrorism" involved? How could
American Assassination confirms the worst fears of a nation. Senator
Paul Wellstone was murdered.
Both authors are decorated university professors. A Native American,
Four Arrows (a.k.a. Dr. Don Jacobs) teaches educational leadership and
is a staunch critic of US foreign policy. Dr. Jim Fetzer is a
published expert on U.S. political assassinations and the logic of
science. Although no one can prove exactly what happened in the events
leading to Wellstone's death, these two Ph.D.s point out the official
story's inconsistencies and deliberate omissions. With a methodical
argument, they present evidence of an official cover-up, a compelling
motive for Wellstone's assassination, and a more probable explanation
for how Senator Wellstone was downed. Their facts point to a new
# There was never any distress call from the pilots. Communication was
somehow cut off shortly before the crash.
# NTSB's Carol Carmody handled the Wellstone case. A former CIA
official, Carmody is a damage-control expert who handled the NTSB's
investigation of the suspicious aircraft crash of Democratic
Senatorial candidate Mel Carnahan, exactly two years earlier.
# NTSB is legally mandated to take jurisdiction over a crash scene,
yet they let the FBI tamper with evidence. The NTSB failed to mention
the FBI's presence in their report.
The NTSB did not consider all of the available evidence!
# Some witnesses heard the engines cutting out, a phenomenon not
consistent with a stall.
# Others reported odd cell-phone and garage-door phenomena that were
taking place about the same time the plane lost both communications
# The NTSB's own simulations, which replicated properties like those
of King Air A-100s under similar conditions, were unable to bring the
plane down—even when conducted under abnormally slow speeds!
# One of the members who actually signed the report, Richard Healing,
admitted that they really had no idea what had caused the plane to crash.
Since becoming active in this issue, normal citizens contacted
Professor Fetzer and related strange electronic communications
interference in the area at the time of the crash. The automatic
garage doors in entire neighborhoods mysteriously opened. Cell phones
experienced never-before-heard kinds of static. These auditory
patterns eerily match those created by "electro-magnetic pulse" (EMP)
weapons recently developed by the Pentagon to jam the
computer-assisted controls of an enemy aircraft. Radar images from the
time of the crashes of both Senators Carnahan and Wellstone match the
profile for EMP fingerprints. EMPs not only jam an airplane's
electronics, they disable the radio communication of the plane.
In the wake of the crash, 69% of Minnesoteans blamed "A GOP
Conspiracy" for Wellstone's death. In appendices to American
Assassination, Wellstone's courageous stands against the rich and
powerful continue to inspire us. Our epilogue presents highlights from
Wellstone's agenda, and his speech "On Iraq." His opposition to the
oligarchy helps the reader understand why Wellstone was assassinated.
When the reader meets Wellstone in his own words, his vision is kept
alive and lives on in each of us, despite the desires of the plutocrats.
