Does anybody remember Danny Casolaro?
Advertisements [?]
Danny Casolaro was the journalist who died under mysterious circumstances (apparently faked suicide) back in 1991 after telling various friends and colleagues that he had uncovered a "giant octopus" swimming in sea of conspiracy whose tentacles reached everywhere. Some of the elements of Casolaro's octopus include the BFEE, Iran-Contra, BCCI, and even Saddam Hussein.

Seeing a few MIHOP threads popping up on DU tonight gave me cause to wonder if perhaps all that we're seeing now with PNAC and a new Pearl Harbor, the lies and deception concerning WMDs in Iraq, all of it might have been part of the truth that Danny Casolaro got too close to. A truth whose knowledge of he paid for with his life.

Please note: I'm not arguing for or against MIHOP or LIHOP. It just struck me as odd that while Danny Casolaro's story sounded like a Tom Clancy spy thriller back in the early 1990s, now it just all seems so eerily familiar.

Some background on the Casolaro story. I do not vouch for the credibility of either of these sources. It's just background for what I'm talking about for those who might not know.

So DU. Danny Casolaro. Early witness to the evils of the BFEE or tinfoil hat material? Does anyone remember?
