An AP photographer said he was intimidated, delayed and monitored. Was vital evidence removed or destroyed? NTSB investigators didn't show up for 10 hours. Why did FBI agents try having things both ways?
On the one hand, they declared the site a "crime scene." They also said no crime took place. How could anyone know without careful forensic examination?
Fetzer and Jacobs believe Wellstone was killed for political reasons. Coverup followed his assassination. The official story is rife with inconsistencies and willful omissions of key facts. They explained how, why, and who was responsible.
Besides eliminating a powerful progressive voice, Wellstone's enemies wanted Republican Coleman's win to help Republicans gain Senate control.
Fetzer and Jacobs explained the following:
Former CIA official Carol Carmody handled NTSB's crash investigation. She's a damage-control expert. Coverup is her game. She was also in charge of investigating Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan's suspicious aircraft crash during his senatorial race against John Ashcroft two years earlier.
NTSB is legally mandated to investigate transportation accidents. Yet it let FBI agents control things. Why it didn't explain. Mention of the FBI's involvement was excluded from their final report.
Ahead of the crash, neither Wellstone pilot signaled distress. Why not since they were going down in a remote area perhaps with no help nearby.
Some witnesses heard what sounded like the engines cutting out or stalling. Others reported odd cell phone and automatic garage door phenomena coincidental with the crash.
They included electronic interference and strange noises never before experienced. The auditory pattern appeared consistent with electromagnetic (EM) weapons use.
They were developed to knock out computer systems and harm human subjects. Most Americans know nothing about them. They can disable radio communications and warning systems.
They can alter an aircraft's flight pattern and cause pilots to lose control. They can make them lose consciousness, incapacitate them in other ways, or kill them.
Fetzer says they can "literally fry the electronic components in an aircraft" the way microwaves heat meals or lightening bolts affect objects struck.
NTSB's simulations replicated weather conditions, the flight pattern, and overall conditions at the time. Even at abnormally low speeds, they couldn't down the plane.
NTSB member Richard Healing said he had no idea what caused the crash. Yet he signed the official report giving reasons that didn't wash. They included pilot error, bad weather, and other preposterous claims. Instead of investigating responsibly, they made stuff up.
Fetzer and Jacobs established compelling prima facie and conclusive evidence to prove Wellstone's death was no accident.
