Is Barack Obama Being Set Up for British Assassination?

APRIL 28, 2008 (LPAC)—Lyndon LaRouche expressed serious concern today, that Sen. Barack Obama may be being set up for assassination, by the very British circles that have been promoting his candidacy, in order to knock Hillary Clinton out of the race. LaRouche issued the warning, upon being briefed on the Washington, D.C. public appearance by Reverend Jeremiah Wright earlier today, in which he launched into his typical racist diatribe. Rev. Wright has been on a nationwide speaking tour, that has brought him to Detroit, Texas, and Washington, D.C. The tour was organized by a Chicago-based public relations firm, tied to Sen. Obama's presidential campaign director, David Axelrod.

LaRouche elaborated on his concerns, noting that Obama is in a free-fall, which has accelerated since his landslide defeat by Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania on April 22. "Obama is going down, just as the British planned all along," LaRouche said. He is losing, and his London controllers are not going to waste an opportunity to get further mileage out of him. How can they maximize the destabilization of the United States, which is the real London goal? LaRouche answered his own question: "In my estimation, Barack Obama's life is in danger, and the biggest contribution to that threat is coming from some of the very people who are ostensibly his closest friends." LaRouche called on Reverend Wright to stop his race-hate tirades, which are only fueling the climate, in which Obama could be murdered and martyred, thus creating a deep schism in America. "Isn't that just what the British want to accomplish? Didn't they play this before? What was the 1960s all about? Didn't they kill Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, Malcolm X to throw the United States into a social crisis, from which we are yet to fully recover?"
