Evidence indicates that Wellstone crash was no accident
From an op-ed in the Duluth News Tribune by Jim Fetzer, via Cyndy at MouseMusings.

For nearly a year now, evidence has been accumulating about the event that ended the life of this magnificent human being. Whatever caused the crash was not the plane, the pilots or the weather. In spite of what you may have heard, the plane was exceptional, the pilots well-qualified and the weather posed no significant problems. Even the National Transportation Safety Board's own simulations of the plane, the pilots and the weather were unable to bring the plane down.

This means we have to consider other, less palatable, alternatives, such as small bombs, gas canisters or electromagnetic pulse, radio frequency or High Energy Radio Frequency weapons designed to overwhelm electrical circuitry with an intense electromagnetic field
The politics of the situation were astonishing. The senator was pulling away from the hand-picked candidate of the Bush machine. Its opportunity to seize control of the U.S. Senate was slipping from its grasp. Its vaunted "invincibility" was being challenged by an outspoken critic of its most basic values. Targeted for elimination, he was going to survive. Here's one man's opinion: Under such conditions, the temptation to take him out may have been irresistible.

I had my suspicions immediately after the crash, and what I've learned about the government investigation hasn't allayed them in the least. For the second time in two years, a Democratic senatorial candidate, ahead in the polls, died in a mysterious plane crash shortly before the election. Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush have shown again and again that they have no scruples whatsoever; why would they stop short of murder?
