Greeting all , i hope u are all well .
" Do you remember when you heard the news?" ( lyrics from the beatles )
The assassination of John Lennon comes next only to the shooting of JFK and has the similer sort of government conspiracy feeling as that of 9/11 .
I would imagine that if you were alive when the killing of John Lennon took place on the December 8 , 1980 , there is a very high possibiility that
you will no doubt remember it .
As the horryfiing news broke out around the globe about this unfortunate event everyone was in a state of shock and disbelief. Noone could understand
why someone would want to kill a member of the most beloved band of all time , The Beatles .
An Ex Beatle , Musical Genius and a very influential campaigner for peace , why would someone do this? I ask you people what would drive someone to
something this foul and distastefull??
The medias answer to this was that Mark David Chapman - was convinced that Lennon was in league with the devil along with being both a obssessed man
over lennon and a disturbed loner finally snapped and killed John Lennon.
After a sixty say turned into a year and sixty day psych evalutation of absolute silence Mark Chapman pleaded guilty to the said crime just hours
before his trial was to start .
Soon after conspiracy theorists were supplementing the presses version of events with there own interpretations of what happens the night the world
was robbed of this cultural giant . Some people believe that this ghastly work was not only that of a mad man but part of a huge pollitical plot.
This is the bbc newsflash of that tragic day . news.bbc.co.uk...
Could the FBI be responsible for this ?
It is known that the late FBI director J Edgar Hoover had a pathologiocal hate for John Lennon and had tried to get President Nixons chief of staff to
bust the musician and have him thrown out of the country. The
FBI is said to have kept Lennon under close survelience ans scrutiny throughout the 70s and tried to mangle his attempts to get US citizenship.
The FBI files on John Lennon to this day remain classified apparently due to the fact that they are linked to british intel info on lennon .
Conclusion is if there was a plot to kill the singer it is not unreasonable to think that the FBI was responsible. This page is an interesting one i
found on Google.
There are also odd things that have to do with the CIA , such as Chapman had worked for several deffence companies with close ties to the CIA .
Apparently it is said that he had some symptoms of those whom have been hynotised . MK ULTRA perhaps??
This could possibly be the answer to the reason Chapman murdered his former hero.
I also found this webpage on Google.
The strange part of all this is that one of the reasons people kill celebs is for a certain degree of media popularity in turn to become famous
themselves HOWEVER in all the time jailed Chapman turned down more then 60 interviews and only spoke to someone once to ask for his release after he
failed to get parolll in October 2003.
It is said that his calmness was very odd after his arrest (could this possibly be a sighn of MKULTRA??)
HOWEVER it is odd that he mnaged to evade matal detectors and searches when transporting the weapn from Hawai to New York.
It is also strange that given the strength of the public to gain the FBIs files on lennon using the freedom of infomation act . The FBI would not let
these files out......How odd.that the FBI answer to this was that relesing the files would cripple national security......Hmmmmm.?
IT is also strage the in the beatles record Majical mystery tour there is a picture of Lennon near a sighn that sais "THE BEST WAY TO GO IS BY
Could he have known???? or was he sighposting the conspiracy???
This is all very interesting to me and i would like to hear your thoughts on the matter.
Here are some more interesting links to things about lennon .
I found these on Google but there are many more out there.
Let me know what u think guys and gals.
