Author and Intelligence Contract Pilot Accused in Murder Suicide
February 5, 2013
If we believe Boing Boing and local California news, Philip Marshall was a “conspiracy theorist” who killed his teenage son and daughter, the family dog, and then himself.
“The alleged assailant was the teens’ father, Philip Marshall, 54, a commercial pilot and author, according to the Calaveras County Sheriff’s office,” The Union Democrat reported on Monday. “Philip Marshall appeared to be well-respected in the community” and people interviewed by the Murphys, California, newspaper found it difficult to believe Marshall would murder his family and the commit suicide.
Xeni Jardin, writing for Boing Boing, dwells on Marshall’s books, The Big Bamboozle and False Flag 911: How Bush, Cheney and the Saudis Created the Post-911 World, and attempts to leave the impression Marshall’s alleged murder-suicide rampage had something to do with 9/11 conspiracy theories, an area of research increasingly viewed by establishment health authorities as a form of mental illness.
Marshall’s bio, however, provides another possible explanation:
Beginning with his role in the 1980s as a Learjet captain first as part of a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sting on Pablo Escobar, and later in the covert arming of the Nicaraguan Contras, Marshall has studied and written 30-years worth of covert government special activities and the revolving door of Wall Street tricksters, media moguls, and their well funded politicians.
