Bresler quotes the late radio journalist Mae Brussell, who broke the Watergate story 2 months before the Woodward-Bernstein expose'. Brussell had no doubts: "It was a conspiracy. Reagan had just won the election. They knew what kind of president he was going to be. There was only one man who could bring out a million people on demonstration in protest at his policies -- and that was Lennon."
Bresler speculates that Chapman was a "Manchurian Candidate," brainwashed and pre-programmed to kill on command. When the moment had arrived, Chapman received his signal and performed his task.
Note: To get Lennon's attention, Chapman yelled "hey Mr.Lennon". The oddity? The Secret Service,FBI,
and CIA had always referred to John as "Mr.Lennon". What kind of so called fanatic would call him "Mr. Lennon"? It would either be "John" or "Lennon", not "Mr." My point? This anamolity points toward CIA brainwashing even more so.
In my opinion,both Ronald Reagan & Bush senior were behind the assassination of Lennon and in a strange turn, Bush was behind the attempted assassination of Reagan.
George HW Bush,while he was a very successful oil man and a brief employee with the CIA in the early 1960's, was an amazing political failure thru out the 1960's when he lost both attempts for a Senate seat.Nixon,who had a political affinity for Bush,appointed him as chairman of the RNC from 1973-74 after he had previously given Bush a postition as Ambassador to the UN (1970-72).
In 1976,when Bush's political career was tarnished (seemingly forever),Gerald Ford made Bush CIA director. It's then that Bush learned of the nasty workings of CIA narcotics dealings,MK-Ultra's continuation programs,etc. By the end of 1976,Jimmy Carter fired Bush as CIA director. Bush sr. became director of the CFR in 1977, but by 1979 Bush was back on the campaign trail and vying for a Presidential nomination & in 1980 he was able to go all the way to face off against Reagan for the Republican nomination,only to lose a bitter fight, as noted at the top of this article.
As continued from earlier in the article, as I reiterate here - Reagan felt sorry for the loser Bush and made him his VP. Nancy Reagan viewed Bush as a sneaky distrustful,creep & begged her husband to NOT choose him as the VP- and she said so in her biography many many years later.
When you think about the bitterness that Bush now had inside of him and his ties to all the above I mentioned, it is NOT inconvievable that Bush was behind the attempted assassination of Reagan so he himself could take over the reigns of the Presidency that he has longed for many years.Of course his dream came true in 1988/89 and to celebrate, he decided to have a war in the Gulf of Iraq. The running commonality in all these conspiracies are staggering and they usually include too many coincidences.
"Conspiracy phobists, whose minds snap shut whenever they hear what they conceive of as "conspiracy theory." I've never figured out exactly what qualifies. It appears that anything that implies nefarious behavior is "conspiracy theory." Apparently illegal or dishonest behavior is not possible in the world view of these people - at least not among prominent politicians. They cling desperately to the "Leave It To Beaver" vision of American life". - unknown blogger,2004
