    Back during President Clinton's more tenuous time, his Secretary of Agriculture was killed in a plane crash under mysterious conditions. Ron Brown's wife afterward revealed her husband had told her, "He fears "going down" with Clinton".

    Yesterday, the Health Department official in Hawaii who had publically presented Obama's "birth certificate" as proof of presidential acceptability was killed in a plane crash.

    Billions of passenger-miles are flown annually to result in a casualty of flying.

    Coincidence? jocular

    There does appear to be a higher chance of dying in a plane crash if you're politically connected. Paul Wellstone, JFK junior, etc. The two Kennedys listed on this page:

    But you always have to take into account the higher odds of hearing about it if they were politicians.

    An inexperienced flight crew trying to approach in poor visibility under instruments into an airport with inadequate direction finding/guiding and traffic control equipment slamming into a mountainside is anything BUT suspicious.

    There's zero credible evidence for anything other than what the formal investigations revealed a series of poor decisions complicated by a bad situation.

    And yes politicians fly a heck of a lot...sometimes into developing countries with primitive airport equipment and rough terrain--sometimes made even worse because they are in war zones.

    Why has no one pointed out that in every instance of death by assassination, an assassin has been found to be responsible? Coincidence? Surely not!

    I will then. Deaths "engineered" clandestinely of necessity cannot involve the revealing of an "assassin". joc

    Hmmm? Thousands of politicians have not been killed in plane crashes. Should we list them?

    Anyone who understands aviation is not going to compare small private planes to large commercial aircraft. They are apples and oranges. If more politicians and celebrities drove motorcycles there would also be a disproportionate number of deaths.

    You entirely miss the point. People die in plane crashes. People who fly a lot are more likely to die. People who fly in private aircraft are more likely to die. Politicians are people who fit these two categories. You stated the blinking obvious and tried to draw an unwarranted conclusion.

    Perhaps if there was some clear evidence to suggest this was something more than an accident, but so far other than the fact that the person who died was involved with the issue of the Presidents birth certificate there doesn't seem anything particularly suspicious. Obama has been re-elected, the whole birth & country issue is long since over and done with, what would the motivation be for any 'engineering' of this womens death?,

    Short of giving reporters something to discuss there doesn't really seem any motivation here, and the fact that as yet they haven't determined how or why the engines failed in of itself is not particularly suprising or striking as this is often the case after plane crashs.

    Unless or until more detailed information comes to light that is suggestive that this is something more than a mere accident accident then I can't really see how any of us are in a position to have a reason to read more into this accident.

    Is that because politicians fly more than other people?
