WHEELS WITHIN WHEELS, MAN...
Coincidence? World Net Daily's Jerome Corsi thinks not:
A private investigator has been unable to find the only eyewitness to the sudden death of media innovator and conservative activist Andrew Breitbart.
The apparent disappearance of Christopher Lasseter, who says he saw Breitbart drop to the sidewalk in front of a restaurant, adds to the mystery surrounding Breitbart’s March 1 death....
After recruiting the assistance of private investigators, WND found that Lasseter, the 26-year-old witness who saw Breitbart drop dead, is no longer residing at his last known address in California....
After determining that Lasseter lived with his parents, Thornton, age 64, and Elaine, age 56, at a Los Angeles address, the investigator visited the residence in-person to see if he could make contact.
During the visit, the investigator reported, no one picked up the phone when he dialed the Lasseter apartment number outside the building....
Omigod -- a 26-year-old guy who lived with his parents has moved out and left no forwarding address! How often does that happen?
The investigator concluded Christopher Lasseter had "hunkered down" in what seemed to be an attempt to avoid further questioning.
Gee, ya think?
Imagine it: You're a young guy, possibly carefree and without a lot of attachments and obligations, and suddenly you happen to witness the death of the Wingnut Messiah. Now, in all likelihood, you've got thousands of crazy cultists tracking your every move, probably picking through your garbage, and in all likelihood doing pseudo-scholarly exegeses on message-board posts you wrote years ago about Mexican wrestling or Motorhead. Who the hell knows -- I don't know a damn thing about this guy, and I don't want to, but I bet a lot of Breitbart cultists either want to touch the hem of his garment or assassinate him. Or both.
Yeah, yeah, I know -- the L.A. coroner died suddenly just as Breitbart's autopsy results were announced. Except that (as the LA Weekly notes) Michael Cormier was actually just a forensic technician, not a doctor, and thus did not work on Breitbart's autopsy. And, yes, he did die suddenly of what possibly could have been arsenic poisoning -- but he ran his own autopsy business on the side, so he surely had access to chemicals that could kill him, and may well have ingested them accidentally, or deliberately, for totally non-Breitbart-related reasons.
Oh, and, as Jerome Corsi acknowledges, even Steve Bannon, now the "executive chairman of the Breitbart News Network," thinks Breitbart died exactly the way the authorities said he did -- from an enlarged heart. (We will pass over in silence the possible causes of that particular condition.)
Corsi's story closes with a curious aside:
On Feb 5, Breitbart had dinner cooked by Ayers at the home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn after Daily Caller publisher Tucker Carlson won a "Super Bowl Dinner" auctioned off by Ayers for $2,500.
This is true -- Breitbart and Carlson did actually dine with Ayers and Dohrn. (Breitbart called Ayers a "sociopath" but loved the food.)
So, um, is that WND's theory? Ayers and Dohrn poisoned Andrew Breitbart?
And let Tucker Carlson live?
