Larry McDonald: Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do!

In the list of Conspiracies the case of Lawrence Patton “Larry” McDonald fits perfectly. Is it a conspiracy theory as many tried to ridicule his claims or is it indeed, a fact? In any case the coincidences are weird!

Lawrence PattonLarryMcDonald (April 1, 1935 – September 1, 1983) was an American politician and a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Georgia’s 7th congressional district as a Democrat from 1975 until he was killed while a passenger on board Korean Air Lines Flight 007 when it was shot down by Soviet interceptors.

Some of his quotes are peculiar and intriguing. The most famous quote is the one he stated in 1976:

The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control … Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.

Korean Air Lines Flight 007 has also been the subject of ongoing controversy and has spawned a number of conspiracy theories. Many of these are based on the suppression of evidence such as the flight data recorders, unexplained details such as the role of a USAF RC-135 surveillance aircraft, or merely Cold War disinformation and propaganda.

Some commentators also felt that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) report into the incident failed to address key points adequately, such as the reason for the aircraft’s deviation. The release of flight data recorder evidence by the Russian Federation in 1993, ten years after the event, seriously challenged many of these theories. Some alternative interpretations focus on evidential questions largely independent of political considerations.

The video inserted below is an interview with McDonald on Crossfire, May 1983, just few months before being killed. The interview is remarkable, just watch here below.
