He also stood in the way of the policies of this renegade administration. Notably for opposing the invasion of Iraq.
The Assassination of Senator Paul Wellstone
(5/9/2005) Was Senator Wellstone assassinated, or was he just the victim of an unfortunate airplane accident? That is a question many people have been asking themselves for the past three years. However, a new analysis has been done by a leading educator and conspiracy theory professional, James Fetzer Ph.D., who has concluded that the evidence is overwhelming that Senator Wellstone was in fact assassinated by people who were ideologically opposed to his politics and who did benefit by Wellstone's death.
The day before Wellstone's plane went down, killing his wife, his daughter, three members of his staff, and his two pilots, Wellstone voted not to give Bush the right to attack Iraq. Wellstone was also moving ahead of his opponent, Norm Coleman, in his race for reelection to the U.S. Senate. Wellstone opposed Bush's plan to privatize Social Security, he opposed Bush's tax cuts for the rich, he opposed Bush's positions on the Middle East, and he opposed just about every other Republican proposal. In other words, Wellstone was a thorn in the GOP's side and they wanted him gone.
On October 25, 2002 the GOP got their wish when Wellstone's plane crashed and burned in a wooded field in Minnesota. News reports attributed the crash to icy weather conditions or pilot error, but both of these causes are highly unlikely and probably just excuses the media used to avoid speculating on sinister conspiracy theories involving people in the right-wing of America's political apparatus.
I have spoken with people who are experts in the art of killing people and they say that assassination by plane crash is the best method because it leaves little evidence, little possibility of survivors, and it puts the investigation into the hands of a small group of people, government employees, who's opinions are difficult to challenge.
Wellstone's plane nose-dived almost straight into the ground and burst into flames killing everyone instantly and leaving almost nothing but bits and pieces of charred wreckage. However, reports of an electronic disruption at the time of the crash indicates the possibility of EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) weapon was used to bring the plane down.
Did someone in the Bush administration, or closely connect, order Wellstone's murder? Well, just ask yourself, is Bush and his group of right-wing extremist the type of people who kill an innocent person? What if the person was standing directly in the way of their goal of majority control in Congress, and had the exact opposite ideology? If your not sure what your answers should be let me point out some facts:
1. Bush signed 152 execution death orders in Texas, a record. 2. Bush lies about WMDs and as a result over 1,580 soldiers have been killed and over 30,000 innocent Iraqis have been killed. 3. Abu Ghraib prison, murders and tortures. 4. Guantanamo Bay, U.S. citizens illegally detained and tortured. 5. Prisoners are exported to countries that allow torture. 6. Bush rolls back environmental regulation. 7. Bush cuts fund for children's health care and veterans. 8. Bush blocks all photos of dead GI's being shipped back to America while lavishing tax cuts on the rich. 9. Bush lies about almost everything.
Bush has the profile of a serial killer. And the other right-wing extremist and neo-cons in his administration are also a bunch of blood lusting fascist thugs.
I hope these few facts have helped to clarify the type of people who have taken over our government.
It is highly unlikely that the public will ever know the truth about Wellstone's death, just like they still don't know the truth about the assassination of JFK, but we as a people must never allow these men's dreams of democracy, freedom, equality, justice, and social protections for the American people be destroyed by people on the extreme ideological right who's greed is only exceeded by their ruthlessness.
"When I first met the President, he called me 'Pablo,'" Wellstone jokes. "That lasted a day or two. Then they started trying to figure out how they were going to get rid of me." - Paul Wellstone

An excerpt from this link:
"From a historical standpoint Democrats are twice as likely to die in air crashes as Republicans. Frequently, those who have died were known to have been either involved in the investigation of covert operations or to have taken highly controversial positions in opposition to vested government interests."
