    CORPORATE in the prescription form, eh?

    Maybe. That's one conspiracy theory. What about political rivals? What about major public figures that could influence the nation against the President?

    I do not believe the U.S. does.

    This kinda funny story about Kurt Busch and his ex girlfriend, accusing her of being a trained assassin, got me thinking. Do you guys believe that our government has assassins operating within our borders today?

    Am I watching too much Homeland??? It's a great show.
    It is quite possible that there are special situations persons, but I would tend to believe not. This is especially true for persons that would kill US citizens. The danger to the command structure would be too large, if it got news coverage. And a program of that type would certainly get noticed given the time.

    I find it interesting that some of the outlandish claims come straight from a fictional movie script I've been working on for eight years.
    she says it's fictional
    no way it could be an autobiography, right kurt

    While it is conceivable that there could be a hit against a alien criminal, though, even that seems less than likely, the assassination of domestic politicians or power brokers is very hard to believe. Keeping something like that under the covers would require more competence than seems on display in Washington. And the top people there know, what would happen, if an assassination of citizens became public. I think probably every politician in the country would like to avoid the Nixon Moment.

    Yea I don't think anyone believes Obama could pull something like that off. He's got enough trouble even admitting the incident in France was terrorism.

    Well Jason Bourne was able to swim away when he fell into the East river so my answer is yes.

    Lon Horiuchi is a well known FBI assassin.

    He is the sniper who murdered Viki Weaver while she held an infant in her arms.
