I have no idea what's going on with the investigation into the Las Vegas shooting last year. However, the deafening silence from official sources is inevitably giving rise to all sorts of conspiracy theories. Two that I've come across recently - which may or may not be more or less accurate; we have no way of telling - are:
- WAYNE ALLYN ROOT=> The Vegas Massacre Exposé: What Really Happened
- FBI Insiders Blow Whistle on Massive Las Vegas Cover Up; Agents Told Not to Investigate Key Evidence Including ISIS Terror Link to Mandalay Bay Massacre
I think the official silence has now become counterproductive. We, the people, are entitled to answers. The authorities can't simply decide to keep this quiet. We have a right to know. Who committed this crime? Why? Who or what was behind it? Did the shooter(s) have associates, and if so, who? What about the shooter's girlfriend, and all the unanswered questions surrounding her actions before, during, and after the incident?
I think it's time we began demanding answers from our elected representatives. If we don't get them there, many people will take - and believe - whatever they can get from anywhere else. What's more, our news media is complicit in the official silence. The Washington Post proudly proclaims that "Democracy dies in darkness". Well, so does truth - so why are the Post, and its peers in the news media, not doing everything possible to uncover the truth of the Vegas massacre, and tell us about it?
Something in Las Vegas stinks - and it's official.
