Still not sure what to make of this. The details seem well-understood, and I wouldn’t put it past various people. But, the President of the United States?
I haven’t heard of this since it came out (here) just after the 2012 election on January 17, 2013.
However, the Washington Times picked it up (here) on March 3rd of this year, so the story’s not dead.
I guess I don’t need to remind anyone that the Washington Times is no fly-by-night operation.
The story is of a plot which, if you or I were to do it, we’d be arrested on charges of kidnapping and murder. Only, in this case, the person doing the kidnapping and the murdering is the President of the United States.
The man doing the accusing: Retired four-star admiral James Lyons.
A four-star admiral is not “high up.” He’s high-high-high-high-up. He’s ultra-high up. When he calls the President the President answers the phone.
