DC Sniper: Evidence of Conspiracyposted 11/14/2009, 11:30 PM (The Center for an Informed America)
[Category: Commentary] Two unlikely suspects have been selected to play the roles of the feared ‘DC Snipers’: John Allen Muhammad, usually described as a 41-year-old ‘drifter,’ although until fairly recently he had spent his entire adult life in the military; and a 17-year-old Jamaican immigrant named Lee Boyd Malvo (also identified as Lee Byron Malvo and John Lee Malvo), who entered the country illegally several years ago.The pair allegedly conducted their killing spree by utilizing what police have described as a car specially modified to create a mobile sniper’s nest. There are, alas, numerous problems with the official scenario. And there is certainly no shortage of weirdness surrounding the alleged exploits of the pair.
Consider the following:
Muhammad’s ex-wife, with whom he has had a stormy relationship marked by bitter custody battles, recently relocated to the DC area to take a job at, of all places, John Ashcroft’s Justice Department. This peculiar fact, reported by the British press, has been curiously absent in the blanket coverage of the case by the American media. (http://www.observer.co.uk/focus/story/0,6903,820087,00.html)
Two years ago, Muhammad reportedly kidnapped his own children, in direct violation of a court order, and took them out of the country for an extended period of time. There is no indication that he was charged with any crime in connection with those actions, nor for repeatedly threatening his former wife.
