Did Cheney order Wellstone assassinated ?

Shortly before he died in a mysterious airplane crash 11 days prior to the 2002 elections, Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone met with Vice President Dick Cheney, probably the Bush administration's most evil public face.

Cheney was rounding up Senate support for the October 2002 vote on giving the administration carte blanche to invade Iraq, with or without blessing from the United Nations. Cheney strong-armed opposing politicians like the most vindictive of mafioso leaders, and opponents usually gave in.

But not Wellstone. Whatever you thought of his progressive brand of politics, he wasn't a wimp. And that's what made him more than dangerous in the eyes of people like Cheney.

At a meeting full of war veterans in Willmar, Minn., days before his death, Wellstone told attendees that Cheney told him, "If you vote against the war in Iraq, the Bush administration will do whatever is necessary to get you. There will be severe ramifications for you and the state of Minnesota."

Wellstone cast his vote for his conscience and against the Iraq measure, the lone Democrat involved in a tough 2002 election campaign to do so. And a few weeks later on Oct. 25, as he appeared to be winning his re-election bid, Wellstone, his wife, Sheila, his daughter, Marcia Markuson, three campaign staffers, and two pilots died in a plane crash in Minnesota.

You may know if the official NTSB report is public? That agency is damn accurate and in general those agencies in all countries make terrific reports(very very detailed).

If it is true that the report says nothing more like "Pilots to blame" and even that is vague it is very strange. That's the important point, the NTSB report. If this one is fishy, he probably got assassinated.

Nothing would surprize me regarding what Cheney would do to achieve his agenda.
To say that the NTSB report was "fishy" would be a gross understatment, within two hours of the crash the first of many unorthodox events took place.

Somethinh about his death has always stuck out to me. It was when his friend, another Senator or Congressman, was giving a press conference and before he could get a few words out he began sobbing. This wasn't a John Boehner/Celine Dion sniff sniff watery eyes cry, this man was overcome. But I remember thinking, this man isn't just sad about his friends death, he knows something more. I have looked for that footage and have never been able to find it. If the perceptive members of ATS saw it, Im sure alot of them would say the same. There was just something about his grief that set off the Shenanigans alert. He knew the incredulous truth, and his helplessness, despair, and rage came through at that moment.
RIP Mr Wellstone.
