Last Show Recap

The Assassination of Sonny Bono

In the first half of the program, George Knapp welcomed nuclear power expert, Arnie Gundersen, who discussed how, more than four years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima, nuclear waste inside the reactors continues to bleed into the Pacific Ocean creating low concentrations of radioactivity that have already migrated across the Pacific to the west coast of North America. Steven Starr of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation briefly joined the conversation during the second hour.

In the latter half, former Nevada consumer advocate and public utility commissioner Timothy Hay addressed the attempt by power companies to crush rooftop solar energy by throwing up roadblocks to make it harder for homeowners to install, and how electric companies hate the idea of clean, plentiful solar taking away their business.

The Assassination of Sonny Bono

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - October 4, 2008
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Bob Fletcher

Ian was joined by investigative researcher Bob Fletcher, who discussed the mysteries surrounding Sonny Bono's death and why he believes the former entertainer-turned-politician was assassinated.

Fletcher began by providing background on the toy manufacturing company he started in Marietta, GA in the early '80s. Fletcher said he merged his operations with a man he'd met at a marketing show in New York, and soon discovered that his new business partner was using the toy company as a front to supply armaments for covert NSA/CIA operations.

Fletcher left the partnership, tried to sue, and began an investigation into the activities of high ranking U.S. military and government officials, who he claims were involved not only in secret weapons dealings but in drug smuggling as well. Fletcher said he'd sent Bono his documentation and the congressman had looked it over and decided to go after the people mentioned in the report. A week and half later Bono was dead.

Fletcher went over the unusual circumstances of Bono's death, noting that the evidence surrounding the fatal ski accident does not make sense. Fletcher stated that Bono had "prominent blood stains" that had soaked through the back of his jacket and three layers of clothes, yet no wounds could be found on his back. He also pointed out that Bono had no neck trauma, no contrecoup brain injuries, nor any other sign that would have come from colliding with a tree at 30 mph.

Fletcher suggested instead that Bono was beaten in the head with a gun and placed by the tree to make it appear as though he'd been in a skiing accident. According to Bono's autopsy report, "some of the fractured bone pieces have a curved configuration" consistent with being struck by the barrel of a .45 or 9mm pistol, Fletcher explained.
