Paul Wellstone, along with his wife, daughter, and campaign staffers, was murdered in an induced plane crash nine years ago this Tuesday, October 25th. The obvious suspect: Dick Cheney and his neocon warmonger mafia. (Cheney had delivered a mafiosi-style ultimatum to Wellstone the week before the murder; 69% of Minnesotans correctly blamed “Republicans” as the cause of the fatal crash.) This episode of Truth Jihad Radio offers a tribute to Wellstone, featuring both co-authors of the book American Assassination: The Strange Death of Paul Wellstone.
Note: Jim Fetzer will give a lecture entitled “What Happened to Paul Wellstone?” on the ninth anniversary of the murder – Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 7 -9 pm, 3650 Humanities, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Details here.
First hour: Four Arrows. Four Arrows (Don Jacobs) teaches at Fielding Graduate University. He is the co-author with Jim Fetzer of American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone, which has just been made into a great new movie that you can watch free courtesy of Snowshoe Films.
It turns out that Four Arrows and I have something in common: We were both hounded out of academic jobs due to our support for 9/11 truth (and in his case, the truth about Wellstone’s death). In fact, the level of harassment Four Arrows experienced not only drove him out of a job at Northern Arizona University, but out of the country!
