Here’s an excellent late 1970s/early 80s documentary on terrorism from my FaceBook friend G. Edward Griffin. the P.L.O., F.A.L.N., Weather Underground – all the bad guys are there. Now some of them are running the show.
Lawrence Patton McDonald, M.D. (April 1, 1935 – September 1, 1983) , represented the seventh congressional district of Georgia as a Democrat – back when many Democrats were still patriots. Yes he was a cousin of General George S. Patton.
McDonald was a passenger on board Korean Air Flight 007 shot down by Soviet interceptors in 1983 and presumed dead.
McDonald was one of the greatest “internal security” champions the U.S. Congress ever produced. For years he successfully campaigned to expose the activities of communist and terrorist groups operating within the United States.
If the Soviets did not know Larry McDonald was on board the plane they shot down, I would be very surprised.
McDonald was a major thorn in their side. Had he lived the U.S. would have been a much safer and greater country than it is today.
I regret never meeting the man.
