Here's my educated guess...

More than 2.





To be more specific...

How many were involved in removing Mossadegh in Iran? Arbenz in Guatemala? Allende in Chile?

Or even the Operation to hunt down Che Guevara in Bolivia?

So somewhere between 2 and X (X = other similar coups).

Oh wait.. I forgot. There's no such thing as conspiracies. So those other examples never happened.

Yes. Also the newly released "Destiny Betrayed"...

enumerates the many obstacles placed in the way of all the subsequent investigations.

Troy man, 18, sues over arrest for carrying rifle in Birmingham

Detroit — An 18-year-old Troy man has sued Birmingham and its police department in U.S. District Court, alleging his civil rights were violated when he was arrested in April while walking in the city's business district with a vintage rifle slung over his back.

Sean Combs was arrested when he failed to give police identification as officers requested, drawing a crowd of teenagers. He was tried and acquitted on charges of brandishing a firearm and disturbing the peace in July; a judge dismissed a charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer.

Police explained at a subsequent district court hearing that they were concerned about him carrying a weapon in a public place, that Combs appeared young for his age, and officers wanted to verify whether it was legal for him to be carrying the weapon.

Combs, who was accompanied by his girlfriend, responded he was exercising his Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Despite seeing his driver's license and confirming his age, police arrested Combs...

The lawsuit, which seeks in excess of $75,000 in damages, claims false arrest, false imprisonment and several violations of his civil rights in openly carrying the rifle. The lawsuit alleges Combs has been traumatized by the incident, and that it has damaged his reputation.

BTW 'Koch d'état™' is a term I just coined. So dibs on the term Koch d'état™. That is all.

Agreed, and that effort will be aided by a strong candidate...

at the top of the ticket.

Especially in a midterm election.
