The Godfather, Part IV: Don Clintoni
Date Added: Mar. 13, 2001
Controversy surrounded Bill Clinton while he was in the White House, but he always managed to survive the hits. This chain letter, which surfaced just weeks after he left the oval office suggests some mafia-style conspiracy may have made him untouchable. It's not surprising that it has re-surfaced as Mrs. Clinton becomes the clear front-runner for the Democratic presidential candidate.

THE FOLLOWING PERSONS HAD INFORMATION ON THE IVES/HENRY CASE:
THE FOLLOWING CLINTON BODYGUARDS ARE DEAD:
Quite an impressive list! Pass this on. Let the public become aware of what happens to friends of the Clinton's!
This list, also known as the "Clinton Body Count," was plastered on several Web sites critical of the former President in the days after his departure from the White House. Conspiracy theorists and reputable press members alike have explored the possibility that these deaths are not merely coincidences and that these people may have been killed for what they knew. At the height of this chain's popularity, I traced it to etherzone.com, a site that called itself "THE INTELLIGENT ALTERNATIVE NEWS AND OPINION SOURCE." The site has since shut down.
Body counts supposedly linked the former President date back to 1993 and a list started by Linda Thompson, the leader of a for-profit conservative advocacy group that supports pro-gun causes and a variety of what the mainstream media dubs "conspiracy theories." It gained notoriety when former Rep. William Dannemeyer sent the list in a letter to other congressmen.
The e-mail only provides sufficient details about each case to support the conclusion that something foul is afoot. I looked into some of the details, like Jim McDougal and Mary Mahoney, and found both objective reports of the cases and conspiracy-laden "investigations." Few of the claims in the e-mail can be proven true or false because they rely too heavily on conjecture and inference. The Snopes.com article listed in the references below goes into more detail about the individual claims.
Could thes deaths actually have been be mob-style hits to hide the truth about Clinton Scandals? It's possible, but not provable from the information given in this chain. It is equally probable that they were all just unfortunate coincidences. But, if I ever meet Mr. Clinton, I'll be sure to kiss his pinky ring, just to be safe. Break this Chain!
