Conspiracy Site du Jour

Oh, my, this is a textbook example of manipulators leading the disaffected, so unbelievable it warrants establishing a new "du jour" category for conspiracy sites.

Iraq link to campus killer Cho 19 Apr 2007 The sister of the gunman responsible for the deadliest shooting rampage in modern US history works as a contractor for a State Department office that oversees billions of dollars in American aid for Iraq. Sun-kyung is employed by the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office, according to US officials and a State Department staff directory that says she works from an annex near the department's headquarters in Washington.

Cho's sister works for McNeil Technologies: Admistration official 17 Apr 2007 Seung-Hui Cho, the student who killed 32 people and then himself yesterday, left a long and "disturbing" note in his dorm room at Virginia Tech, say law enforcement sources... His older sister, Sun-Kyung, graduated from Princeton University in 2004. A source, who asked to be identified as a senior Administration official, said she works for McNeil Technologies, a firm contracted by the State Department to manage reconstruction efforts in Iraq. [From the McNeil Technologies website: 'Since 1985, McNeil Technologies has been a premier provider of critical professional services and reliable business solutions to the US Federal Government. We help government agencies meet some of their most complex service needs...' [Oh, I'm sure you do!] Overview of McNeil Technologies Intelligence Services: Our services and capabilities include: Intelligence Architecture Operations in support of the US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) which supports the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and other government agencies. HUMINT (Human Intel) operations in support of DIA, or with federal counter Intel outsourcing effort...]

Apparently these deceivers have no problem with overlooking logical fallacies in order to suggest the Bush Administration had something to do with Cho's rampage.

Appropriately so, Gonzales' testimony was delayed because of the horrific mass murder which had taken place at Virginia Tech the previous day.

Senate Delays Gonzales Testimony on Firings

After Slayings at College, Judiciary Panel Moves Session on Prosecutors to Thursday

The Senate Judiciary Committee canceled testimony scheduled for today from Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales after concluding that the hearing would be inappropriate in the wake of yesterday's mass slayings at Virginia Tech.

Committee Chairman Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) said he postponed the hearing, which will focus on the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys, until Thursday after conferring with Gonzales and the committee's ranking Republican, Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.).

"I'm sure that he will want to be dealing with the matters of the shooting," Leahy said of Gonzales.

Justice Department spokeswoman Tasia Scolinos said: "The attorney general would like to testify as soon as possible. But out of respect for the family members impacted by this horrific tragedy he will defer to the chairman's judgment on when to hold the hearing."

Still, there are probably a few self-anointed "investigative journalists" out there in the blogosphere so driven by their all-consuming and debilitating hatred for Bush they will try to suggest Cho's sister "made him do it" as part of an Administration conspiracy to delay Gonzales' testimony.
