Coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not. You should decide for yourself. I am unsure.
I'm not trying to make light of this....It was, for everyone involved, a tragedy. But there are those who might think it is, and have a reasonable argument that it could be, a setup, a manchurian candidate type scenario. Sadly, I cannot dismiss this as fantasy.
These incidents do happen. And they may well be random (thankfully, the sample size is low), but there is, like with the whole Fast and Furious debacle, some interesting correlations with the wants and desires of the liberal and Statist party and the people who could make this happen to further their own agenda.
The sad fact is that it is not outside the realm of possibility that there are people in our government (in both parties) who would not have issues with killing 20+ people to influence public opinion.
Power corrupts. Absolute power....
I find it sad that I think that about those we choose to run our country. And frightening that I can believe that it is possible. Even sadder that we elect people who I could suspect would make such decisions.
