Pentagon and defense operations must zero in on a problem and bypass the red herrings when seeking solutions; Law enforcement has to do the same thing in a murder investigation like that of John P, Wheeler III. Red herrings in the John Wheeler case include too much of a focus on his alleged erratic behavior and more.

It keeps on going back to his house and the neighbor's house. The "smoke bombs", cell phone, boot prints, pried up floor boards, loud TV, etc. Strange indeed.
Lt Gen Mackinary (sp?) on Michael Savage in about 15 mins.
...or the fairy tale told by ALL of why Sandy Berger all of a sudden took a liking to paper in his groin......we never did find out what papers and why
Vince Foster was HOMICIDE victim, beyond reasonable doubt. No need for the qualifier "perhaps" with respect to the Foster cover up, since there is no way the evidence fits the official "suicide" verdict.
As to the Wheeler case, today on another FR thread, a retired Philadelphia detective turned PI states that it might not be a homicide. Could he be running interference - inadvertently - for the killers?
Coming up momentarily on Savage - USAF General & Friend of Wheeler’s
You are right
What does that mean?
correcting my typo. It was Lt Gen McInerney
Maybe you or anyone who listens to the interview on Savage could post some salient points? I’d really like to hear what he says but radio reception where I live is very bad.
I read an article today that suggested that he crawled into the dumpster to look for shelter like homeless people do. It also stated ‘he suggested he was mugged’.
Only makes me more suspicious that this is being swept under the rug. The man was obviously attacked as he said he was and I personally do not believe he voluntarily crawled into a dumpster, for crying out loud.
Too many unknowns for the moment. I think everyone is spoiled by the CSI way of solving crimes.
I don’t believe “he crawled into the dumpster to look for shelter” either. It makes no sense at all.
He’s seen on video and by witnesses in Wilmington numerous times on Dec. 29th and 30th. Why would he go 13 miles to Newark just to crawl into a dumpster on Dec. 31st?
There must have been plenty of dumpsters in Wilmington he could have crawled into.
You are exactly right.
Police have said it is a homicide, so you can definitely throw the suicide option off the table. John P. "Jack" Wheeler was a victim of foul play on 12/30th or early 12/31st.
Given the body was battered during the disposal process, perhaps even a compactor, etc., we can speculate he suffered a bullet wound, was knifed or was administered a mind-altering toxic substance that the ME quickly identified.
The author, Radell Smith, seems on top of the facts but her arguing that red herrings are a distraction is a disservice.
One often does not know what is a red herring until they have constructed a well supported theory. Even then it can be dangerous to ignore anything one knows about a matter. For instance, a single seemingly unrelated document out of 50 banker boxes can be a smoking gun.
Savage comes on my local news station at 9 est, in 45 minutes and they do stream live! 8^)
If anyone wants to hear the Savage interview with the Col re Wheeler’s death it will stream live at wokv.com at 9 est.
Now I hate to admit it...But when someone grabbed my 75 YEAR OLD mom's purse, she went after him...It was an hour before she reported it to the police. (She was lucky).
I think Wheeler was doing the same thing. He didn't want the police because he knew he could find the perp faster...and that LE "stinks" when it comes to robberies like this.
I'll bet he was carrying....
He knows people in these areas...
I am a techtard. You mean I could listen online? Would I have to listen at that time?
Techtard? LOL I never heard that one. Yes go to the website now and click the listen live button at the top left. It will play a 30 sec ad before going to the program. It started and is in 1st commercial break right now.
