[UPDATE] Before reading this, please read the official police report, which came out after a lot of the speculation about the case. It quite clearly explains how it was a suicide, based on considerable evidence from the site.

Unfortunately the suggestions that he was killed were inevitable. Pretty much anyone with any alternative appeal dies nowadays, and it seems like they were whacked.

Well until I read more about the book and events I will reserve judgment . . . he is most likely a person of passion, maybe unstable but maybe this is totally out of character . . . if it is out of character . . . then what does one suspect . . .?

Suicide? Out of character? That probably describes a lot of them.

I don't want to belittle the tragedy. But I don't think it should automatically be viewed as suspicious even if it is out of the blue. There's plenty of truthers out there. If they were going to spill the beans then by far the safest thing to do would be to spill them, not say they were, and wait for the MIB to show up.

Suicide, especially murder-suicide, is one of those thing that is very difficult to comprehend, so unfortunately it is is easy to slip in creating alternative narratives.

And of course fo many people, a "shill" like myself saying that is just more "evidence".

The fact that the family dog was shot in a bedroom, makes it more likely to me that it was a murder/suicide. The others were found in the front of the house. The dog would have either come out and barked or something at any intruder, or the dog would have cowed in a back room in fear. If that had happened, the dog would not have come to an attacker's notice.

I don't necessarily agree . . . it depends on the dog's nature . . . what if Mr M put the dog in the bedroom when a visitor showed up at the door . . . I have done that myself. . . there was a Mrs M. the shooter could have been looking for her . . .

Lee, what is your reaction to this bit of news????

I only know what I've read here, so far, but, well G - a man with a wife and kids and dog and home. A man with a book just about to come out (is that right?) on a subject he felt passionate enough about to put it together and get it published - what the hell did he have to live for? First impressions? A clear case of 'suicide', by the look of it.

There's plenty of truthers out there.

That's an appalling thing to say.

Plenty of truthers out there? When it comes to committing suicide? But you're usually saying how few their dwindling numbers are!

Aaaah! Just got it - the dwindling numbers are because they're all killing themselves! Simple equation that one, now I see it.

If one were into conspiracies . . . of course that would not be either of us . . . this could look like a warning to others to stop snooping . . . not that he might know anything . . . but others might . . . so move along and keep coloring or this could happen to you and yours . . . or he just went crazy and did himself, his dog and two children in while his wife was away . . . or could she have had them all done in . . . ??? Yes . . . seems the book is real . . .http://www.amazon.com/The-Big-Bamboozle-War-Terror/dp/1468094580

No, that's not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying that if he had any information, then he, or the legions of other truthers (dwindling numbers, but still at least in the thousands), would have released it by now. I see no benefit to a supposed conspiracy in killing him.

I'm sure you could concoct a scenario though.

I don't agree it could be very useful . . .as I said above . . . this could look like a warning to others to stop snooping . . . not that he might know anything . . . but others might . . . so move along and keep coloring or this could happen to you and yours . . .

Hadn't he already written two tell-all books? Seems a little late.

I suspect the dog as an al ciada mind-controlled suicide assassin. What sort of dog was it exactly? With some dogs, all you have to do is wave a filthy piece of meat bound for the garbage in their face and they'll do whatever you want. Easy meat for the old mk ultra mob. I think it's the most likely scenario. Look at the science.

Exactly. It's not like it isn't a well-worn tactic of 'Mafias' (and that includes all 'governments') generally, is it? I think it's called intimidation. It's as old as we are.

In the article - the wife says that his claim to have been a CIA contract pilot in the Iran-Contra deal was a fantasy. But she also said this:

Immediately following that in the article:

Oh, right. That's that cleared up then.

Intimidating people AFTER they have written "tell all" books, and AFTER 12 years of "truther" efforts seems like closing the door on an empty stable.

If truthers haven't managed to reveal "the secret yet", despite a sustained and intensive efforts at doing so, then their inability seems to me to be more evidence of absence - they cannot find anything because there is nothing to find.

Do you live in a bubble? Thousands?! Tens of millions, more like! You must move in very particular circles.
That might make an interesting discussion. How many truthers are there? Of course it kind of depends how you define a truther - made it happen vs. let it happen vs. glad it happend.

Worldwide there's certainly a lot, particularly in anti-american muslim countries, but how many in the US? Let's look at some facebook groups:

9/11 Was an Inside Job - 15.5K
AE911 Truth - 120K
We Are Change - 114K
We Are Change Los Angeles - 154 (No K, just 154)

So out of 1 billion active users, only about 120K of them liked a truther page. That's 0.012%. And I suspect that not all of them are really that hard core.

Of course that's still a lot of people, but it's really not very much of the total population.

Anecdotally I have about 200 friends and acquaintances on FB. Other than a few I friended because of my visit to the chemtrail conference, there's only one that thinks the WTC was a controlled demolition.

Don't think that is a scientific survey . . . I am not a member of any organization except AARP . . . many of my acquaintances are highly suspect of 911 including a few PhDs, MDs and engineers . . .

So what? I set up a FB account in the name and character and photos of my dog. Who was off to better places, ie dead. I got that many 'friends' in no time! My surrealist experiment was a great success, even if I say so myself! It's almost less than meaningless.

Not all countries that are 'anti-american' are Muslim, most of them aren't. Nice bit of the old zeitgeist there, though, well done for getting that in there - 'blame the ragheads', good racist undertones of the general establishment view faithfully repeated....Most people in this world recognize the US as the aggressor, the tyrant, the murderer, the imperialist, the 'not so good at humility', the greatest abuser of great power (military power, that is).

Your censorship is an outrage to free speech. Your grounds for 'politeness' are completely arbitrary, it appears. But then, addiction has its price.

Don't know but rule of thumb for congressional staffers is for each constituent that writes a letter of concern there are at least 25 others who have similar concerns . . .

This is a bit like the death of conspiracy theorist Bill Cooper, who was shot in the head sometime in November 2001. He was for a long time victim of tax evasion and he was tagged as a major fugitive in 2000. On November 2001, the Apache County's sheriff's deputies attempted to arrest Bill at his house after charges were made against him by his neighbors of " aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and endangerment stemming from earlier disputes with local residents"

As the cops arrived at his house, Bill pulled out a gun on them and started shooting at them, leading to a gun fight between him and the cops. Bill ended up shooting one of them in the head and Cooper was eventually fatally wounded. Despite this, his fans say that the government wanted to get him for "revealing the truth".

[...] Killing someone doesn't count as intimidation any more, well spotted - you can't intimidate a dead person too well - what have they got to lose? But others, who may have been having similar ideas to the dead 'un - now, they're still alive!

You left out "the largest supplier of humanitarian aid in the world", "birthplace of the Internet", and some other little things like being at the forefront of innovation in science & engineering for the better party of a century.


I think you are largely mistaken about the world's perception of the US. There are few non-Muslim countries that as part of their doctrine are "anti-American"(in addition to there being few Muslim countries that are). I'm curious if you can show me a video of people rioting and burning American flags in a non-Muslim country.
