18. I'm not skeptical about the transfer of nukes.
The Pentagon has acknowledged the serious problems associated with that. In fact, heads rolled when Gates fired some very high-ranking AF officers, and that's been well documented, including news releases from the Pentagon.

My problem is with trying to connect unrelated deaths with the improper handling of the nukes. Unfortunately, I did the research quite awhile ago and don't remember all the specifics, but the deaths did not seem related, happened in different parts of the country over a period of several years (if I remember correctly), and included people who had no connection to the nukes. When I e-mailed Lori with my concerns, she said she knew and that's why she'd used quote marks, ie, "oddities", etc.

I was very disappointed that she would seemingly report something as serious as that in that manner. I found it very misleading and disingenuous, to say the least.

She did the same thing in reporting the massacre at Va. Tech. Since I'm from southwestern Va. and have good friends on faculty at VT, I knew there was no "conspiracy" there.

I have no problem with believing there are now (and have been) conspiracies. I tend to be very skeptical about taking things at face value. My first instinct is to question everything, especially if it involves the Gov't. In fact my mantra is: A. Follow the money, and B. Who benefits(imagine a question mark here-time to buy a new keyboard,lol!). Guess what I'm trying to say is that I take stuff from that site with a grain of salt until I can verify it with other sources.
