Last week (May 3, 2008), "Geraldo At Large" on Fox News had a segment that dealt with the "suicide" of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, a.k.a. The DC Madam. Among his guests were Alex Jones and Kimberly Guilfoyle:
We have had a week to mull it over. I think that many would say that she didn't commit suicide:
This case MAY be still ongoing. There COULD be an investigation going on that of course would not be public knowledge. And then again, maybe there is NO investigation beyond the almost immediate conclusion that Ms. Palfrey's death was by suicide. She allegedly hung herself, not the normal way women take their lives. I haven't heard of an investigation being that conclusive in such a short time since they announced who the 19 perps were in the 9/11 attacks.
In this case, the perp was announced within hours; it was Deborah Jeane Palfrey herself. And now, unless they are keeping it classified, there is no further investigation going on that could not only determine her death as a homicide, but to at least give us a clue who could be involved. It's Vince Foster all over again. The only investigation that will ever be done will be by private individuals.
At this point, accusing any one individual or group in particular would be foolish. Even if some private investigator or journalist should come across a major lead, it may not ever appear in the press. Not to mention the investigator(s)'s life could be at stake.
But if you had ever read "The Brotherhood of Darkness", you'll know what I mean by mentioning the "Orient Express" method of homicide. There are so many plausible suspects that it may never be solved, much like the John F. Kennedy assassination. So, is it even worth it for us to think about? Well, while the case may never be solved, at least some of us will be able to shed light on the enormous political power that can erase everything from Chappaquiddick to Chaundra Levy to Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
And that is what it really comes down to. We currently enjoy the freedom to write web logs about these things, or get on to nationally syndicated talk radio shows. However, if one of us were able to get too close to the truth, would we survive without moving to somewhere near the Amazon? Would even Woodward and Bernstein be able to get by with it?
