As is always the case with the death of a strategically-placed individual at a time of controversy, one must ask: was this tragedy as it seems on the surface–an unfortunate accident?
Given that the sabotaging of small aircraft is child’s play for a skilled assassination organization, it is important to consider what the late, unfortunate Mr. Black might have learned or known that may have placed him in danger. Had he learned something inconvenient for the political far right?
In this context, one should remember BP is a major center of power politics, in both the United States and the United Kingdom, with close connections to the Bush political milieu.
Excerpt: An executive helping to guide BP’s recovery from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, a top Texas lawyer and his mother-in-law were killed in a small plane crash in waters off northern Florida, officials said Wednesday.
James Patrick Black, 58, died about a mile from the Destin airport in the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday night, said BP spokeswoman Hejdi Feick. Those who knew them said the three were bound for a Thanksgiving holiday gathering in Florida.
Black was director of operations for BP’s Gulf Coast Restoration Organization and had a key role guiding the business unit created after April’s Deepwater Horizon rig fire and explosion and monthslong spill that spewed at least 200 millions of crude oil from a blown-out BP well. . . .
