Controversy on Smolensk air crash

A couple of videos have surfaced on YouTube which have stirred some controversy on the Smolensk air crash in which the Polish president Lech Kaczynski died, amongst others. Below the fold you'll find two videos, one by Jane Bürgermeister, questioning what really happened, and the other an enhanced version of a video mentioned by Bürgermeister, which appears to show that shortly after the crash, before any emergency services arrived, survivers were being shot and killed. While some of Bürgermeisters comments seem a little far fetched, she poses a number of legitimate questions to which, to date, no answers are being given.

Allegedly, the person who shot the second video was stabbed and killed in hospital, in an incident referred to by authorities as an accident. I haven't been able to confirm this claim, and neither why this person would have been in hospital in the first place. If true, this would be a bit too coincidental for comfort.

What struck me first about the crash is the fact that apparently so many 'important' persons were on that single flight, something any security adviser worth his paycheck would have vehemently protested against. Businesses won't let strategic staff or specialists fly together, as a precaution against endangering the businesses' future by such an accident. So why would a government. Did they all deem themselves so important that they had to be on the government plane? Whatever the reason, it's bad strategy, as is so painfully proven here.

Nigel Farage in plane crash

This morning, UKIP politician Nigel Farage was involved in a plane crash, while taking off for a day of campaigning over parts of the UK. Today, the UK holds elections. The plane landed upside down, while still on the airport. Although information is limited, Nigel is reported to be only mildly injured, while his pilot is worse off, but not life-threatening.

Lets hope both recover soon, and that the cause of the accident will be not only found out, but honestly reported. Nigel has made a lot of enemies within the establishment, by freely speaking his mind and questioning authority, and one can only hope his plane was not sabotaged.

Or: How politicians really see their voters.

The fact that politicians as a rule are lying through their teeth while changing their story depending on their audience should not come as a surprise to anyone. Nor the fact that they will only openly state what they really think if they feel secure and unexposed.
