2. You think they'd blame Obama for this?

6. CT Birthers have said that Breitbart was killed by Obama's orders.

That anyone close to exposing Obama's 'secrets' will be killed. Fits in with their paranoid fantasies. Check Prison Planet and World Net Daily, their watering holes. Oh, anything will do, they have a running litany of people who die and it's Obama's fault.

If you haven't seen Alex Jones' offerings about Obama, you haven't seen just how wild these folks are. Tsuanami after Japanese earthquake?

Obama ordered HAARP to set them off to stop them from getting cozy with China. They never gave up on the Foster case they accused Hillary and Bill of doing to cover up their crimes, and this is just perfect. Oh, it never ends with them.Do I believe they have cause to suspect Obama?

No. Just an accident that unfortunately took the lives of important people. But the CTers will believe just about anything, and guess what, these lunatics do vote. Sigh.

3. Tragic.

I hope there was no foul play, here. The country needs as much stability as it can get.

4. I doubt it

 

The government bought a bunch of Mi-14's a few years ago and doesn't properly maintain them. That is the likely cause.
