Quote:Terrified about six dead airmen from Minot Air Base? Don't be.

Minot AFB clandestine nukes 'oddities'
This is getting seriously creepy. Now SIX pilots and bomb handlers from Minot Air Force Base have been killed since the cross-country flight of the nukes has come to light. I am terrified and this is something Unknown News should report.
What Unknown News must report, Rebecca, is that you're a ninny. Usually I'm patient with people who waste my time, but time is tight, patience is short, the insane Bush-Cheney administration is poised to attack Iran and trigger international catastrophe -- and what you've sent is a mindless distraction.
The very first thing that caught my attention was that the website, Citizens for Legitimate Government, doesn't name the dead airmen. That struck me as odd, and still does. So I followed the website's six news links in order, and the names are:
Todd Blue (whose death we reported last week),
an as-yet un-named married couple who worked at Barksdale Air Base, not Minot (so the website's claim that "All six people listed below are from Minot Airforce base " is false),
Todd Blue again (a second article about the same airman's death),
Adam Barrs, who, the article states, died in early July -- almost two months before the late-August nuclear flight,
Weston Kissel, who died in late July, and thus would also seem to have diddly to do with the flight in question,
John Frueh, who'd been missing since late August -- but the article makes no mention of Minot or Barksdale Air Bases. It says he's from Florida.
So that article from Citizens for Legitimate Government is, basically, a fat load of hooey. And it took me three minutes to figure that out... and another twenty minutes to type it all up and explain it to you.
And in case you're wondering, yes, I remain somewhat curious about Airman Blue's death, and about the two deaths from Barksdale. I think it's a real story, but this item is worse than useless.
Listen up: It's within Bush and Cheney's lack of character to start bumping off airmen to cover up for some nuclear nightmare scenario. It's plausible. But plausible doesn't mean TRUE, and an article at some political website isn't grounds to be TERRIFIED until you've at least clicked a few damn links. So have a little skepticism and don't jump every time somebody says BOO.

The entire story of lost nukes and finding them on a plane?

Have you read the story?! Isn't that crystal clear? There were no murders.

So is this confirmed? That's good if so.
