Obama and Hawaiian DoH Director Fuddy’s Convenient Death
That danger to them is why the witness protection program was created. There are plenty of people who will kill other people for reasons of hate or profit. They have to be kept away from their would-be targets or they will end up dead.
But people in the public eye cannot just enter the witness protection program and disappear into a new identity in a new unknown location. They have to continue living their lives in the public eye and hope that secrets that they know, -which it would be better to not know, won’t eventually cause wheels to be put in motion that will figuratively drop a meteor on their head. The sword of Damocles hangs over their head, which they have to live under everyday. Until it drops.
Sometimes it drops in very suspicious ways, like a “suicide” by shooting oneself in the back or some such unbelievable circumstances. But more often it drops in very, very subtle and believable ways. Bullets are no longer a credible way to eliminate the cognoscenti; they raise too many eyebrows. So other methods must be employed.
