- It's time to put this 'story' into factual context, if
not lay it to rest completely. This is exactly why the net cannot be trusted
without thorough research. This trash has been running around for a couple
weeks now. What is NOT shown below in the story about the 'mysterious deaths'
are the DATES of two deaths, and the exact circumstances of others.
- Mystery Surrounds Deaths Of Minot Airmen
- Six members of the US Air Force who were involved in
the Minot AFB incident, have died mysteriously, an anti-Bush activist group
- ** 'Mystery'?? ...'an anti-Bush activist group'? Who
are they and where is their proof of involvement of all of the deceased
in the Tomahawk missile loading and flight of the B-52 on August 30, 2007?
- The incident happened when a B-52 bomber was "mistakenly"
loaded with six nuclear warheads and flown for more than three hours across
several states, prompting an Air Force investigation and the firing of
- The plane was carrying Advanced Cruise Missiles from
Minot Air Force Base, N.D, to Barksdale Air Force Base on August 30.
- The Air Combat Command has ordered a command-wide stand
down on September 14 to review procedures, officials said.
- ** The stand-down was a wise administrative decision...obviously
intended to find out how this event happened.
- The missiles, which are being decommissioned, were mounted
onto pylons on the bomber's wings and it is unclear why the warheads had
not been removed beforehand.
- In addition to the munitions squadron commander who was
relieved of his duties, crews involved in the incident, including ground
crew workers had been temporarily decertified for handling munitions.
- ** Where is the documentation?
- The activist group Citizens for Legitimate Government
said the six members of the US Air Force who were directly involved as
loaders or as pilots, were died within 7 days in 'accidents'.
- ** This is a complete lie. "...were died (sic)
within 7 days (of the event)..." Look at the DATES of their deaths
- The victims include Airman First Class Todd Blue, 20,
who died while on leave in Virginia. A statement by the military confirmed
his death but did not say how he died.
- ** This man's passing *is* unusual in that his obit did
not mention the cause of death which is often omitted when suicide is involved.
However, he could have been suicided to shut him up. That is a possibility.
- In another accident, a married couple from Barksdale
Air Force Base were killed in the 5100 block of Shreveport-Blanchard Highway.
The two were riding a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, with the husband
driving and the wife the passenger, police said.
- "They were traveling behind a northbound Pontiac
Aztec driven by Erica Jerry, 35, of Shreveport," the county sheriff
said. "Jerry initiated a left turn into a business parking lot at
the same time the man driving the motorcycle attempted to pass her van
on the left in a no passing zone. They collided."
- ** Accidents happen. The guy was driving the bike, his
wife was on the back. He STUPIDLY tried to pass on the LEFT side of a small
van which turned left at the same time. The woman driver was distraught
and no charges were filed.
- Adam Barrs, a 20-year-old airman from Minot Air Force
Base was killed in a crash on the outskirts of the city.
- ** This airman was killed on JULY 5 in a car crash...almost
TWO MONTHS before the August 30 B-52 event.
- First Lt. Weston Kissel, 28, a Minot Air Force Base bomber
pilot, was killed in a motorcycle crash in Tennessee, the military officials
- ** This airman was killed JULY 20, SIX WEEKS BEFORE the
August 30 B-52 event.
- Police found the body of a missing Air Force captain
John Frueh near Badger Peak in northeast Skamania County, Washington.
- ** This one is, like Airman Blue's death, suspicious.
He was found in a remote area 'near his rental car'...but authorities say
'no foul play was suspected.' Another suicide?
- The Activist group says the mysterious deaths of the
air force members could indicate to a conspiracy to cover up the truth
about the Minot Air Base incident.
- Whoever wrote this drivel picked it up from other stories
being circulated on the net claiming that 'six airmen have been murdered'
to shut them up over the B-52 August 30 flight.
- Unfortunately for these idiots, four of the six deaths
are not 'mysterious'... accidents happen and 45,000 people a year die on
American highways and roads every year.
- The deaths of only two of the six are somewhat unusual:
those of Blue and Frueh.
- This is the original, full story claiming the deaths
are all tied together:
