He is going to die eventually, we all do. Tell me at that point will his death 100% prove he is telling the truth about area 51? At what age and in what manor can he die and the government not be blamed?
The simple fact is he is not a threat because his story is not true, no one will ever back it up.
He doesn't have access to any topsecret stuff anymore.
He also doesn't have any physical evidence, if he did -- he would of presented it already.
This makes his claim 100% unverifiable.
And yes, if he died under non-suspicious circumstances, it would just be another death.
If he was shot/poisoned/murdered without motive, all it does is circumstantially strengthen his case. Then there is always risk that if assassinated, that the plot of his assassination could be uncovered and traced back to those who ordered the hit, which would absolutely 100% prove his claim.
So yeah... if you are sitting here saying that leaving him alive is a risk, you haven't thought it through very carefully, because killing him is a bigger risk given the circumstances.
If they had no other choice, they would take that risk, but alas -- they do have other choices. It's quite a stretch of imagination to fathom that he would be able to prove it now. The more time that passes, the more unlikely it becomes that he'll ever be able to substantiate his claims.
Hence the reason assassination is unwarranted, since it bodes a bigger risk than the possibility of Lazar being able to prove it empirically.
