Let me pick at this because agreeing is too easy.
Conspiracy Theory is defined as:
A belief that some covert, but influential, organization is responsible for an unexplained event. Moreover Conspiracy Theories are built on a Lack of
I don't agree. A theory has data to go along with it. There are facts, and then there are factoids which look factly but they might not be
supportive. Otherwise, wouldn't it be a conspiracy hypothesis? It doesn't have to be covert or influential or even an organization. It could be two
dudes who decide to do something.
About the car hacking, Richard Clarke can say what he wants. I know for certain the CIA has done car sabotage before; former CIA operatives admitted
to doing so, in a way that even inspired a Hollywood movie that recreated a scene, using their advice. They hotwired a car, made in the 70s-90s, to
hijack it like a radio controlled vehicle so when the driver was on a busy street; they made an accident. It's not stupid, just evil. I wish I had
the name of the action movie that had their admitting that tactic but it escapes me now. It worked on older cars; it can work on the newer ones as
The gov't wouldn't do OBD these days; they would replace the radio in a moment when the driver wasn't watching the vehicle (true story last year I
was being investigate-chased on the fly ((hi AP BoD, trying to act invisible, running off in the parking garage)) for God knows what on a holiday
weekend, and before the investigation, old radio code on my clunker, and after, new radio code, hmm -- well what can you do with sneaky intel people
with loud walkie talkies talking about gift card in my glove box in the wall behind the hotel room bathroom? Can I even take a poop in peace when I'm
on a vacation from the investigators? And the Rand people with the coat signals and the FBI undercover agent who was posing as the sushi restaurant
waiter, asking me if I've ever left the country, and the freaking snipers in DC waiting to peg the tourist with the bottle of water in the bag, you
guys are paranoid, overpaid and underworked. Aaaarugh. I want my old radio back
I swear they're after the conspiracy theorists online first) .
Within the radio could be all sorts of interesting things, and it takes about 10 seconds to switch. You say they would have an odor, but maybe they
smell like auto fluids or burnt leather seats, because everything in that vehicle was burning. How many stories about organized crime involve an
exploding vehicle? I've only read one but it's more than enough.
I don't think anybody on the planet would think, hey let's pull the fuses to stop the vehicle. That's fantasizing, so rare that it's easier to
emergency brake and hit other cars, swerve to flip the vehicle.
Okay so it's said he was a drinker and a drug addict. Someone could have put something in his drink or he got some bad whatever stuff. Toxicology
reports can be faked too.

investigation is loaded with hundreds of silent workers?
