(Sigh) Yes, youread that right. And while I’m sure someone has addressed this topic before, let’s do so again given that Clinton-pounding is all the rage again.
Over the past eight years, a constant stream of right-wing commentators, conspiracy mongerers, and board-certified nuts have postulated that Clinton and his past co-conspirators were responsible for the deaths of some 80 persons–persons who somehow stood in the path of William Jefferson Clinton and his underhanded dealings, and therefore had to be liquidated. Some of the zanier sources claim that Clinton himself may have personally killed some of these individuals. Amazingly, untold millions of Americans, it appears, buy into this conspiracy theory.
I recently mentioned this topic to a friend–in a laughing manner–and he replied: “Hey, I wouldn’t be so sure. A lot of Clinton’s enemies have died in really mysterious ways. I wouldn’t put it past the bastard!”
Apparently, this alleged homicidal activity can be traced to when Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Frankly, the whole thing about an “Arkansas mafia” sounds assinine. Were it true, someone would squeal–a jilted lover, someone who found God, whomever.
What’s your take on this issue?
