Suicided By The Gov’t: The D.C. Madam

After hearing of the news about the apparent suicide of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, I couldn’t help but recall reading about how Ms. Palfrey stated that she was afraid for her life, and that she suspected that she would be murdered by the government and it would be made to look like a suicide.

Apparently, the news media finds the circumstances suspicious as well:

Funny how they think that it is “odd” that she killed herself before the appeals process had run its course, and how they were suprised that not many “big names” ended up being linked to the scandal, even though from the start of this case, it was clear that high-powered officials would be implicated. I guess it’s just sad that these newscasters have to point out how “odd” things are rather than speculate about what is a rather obvious possibility.  Making it even more “odd” is the fact that it is more common for women to commit suicide by poisoning than by strangulation or shooting.

Here are some sound bytes from a radio show where Ms. Palfrey said for the record that she would not commit suicide:

Sadly, I know the U.S. Government has killed to get its way in the past, and I can’t help but think that it will continue to do so.

Update: Apparently, I’m not the only one.
