  • Princess Diana 'was killed after plan to frighten her went wrong'

    Princess Diana died after attempts to frighten her into dumping Dodi al Fayed and ending her anti-establishment activities went horribly wrong, a leading lawyer has claimed. Michael Mansfield claimed he was sure Diana's 'killers' had no intention of ending her life in a Paris tunnel in August 1997 and simply wanted to scare her. But he claimed the operation to torpedo her relationship with Dodi, and silence her planned criticism of the British government over foreign arms sales, backfired spectacularly.

    The latest version of the story of Princess Diana’s tragic death goes something like this: 23 minutes past midnight on the evening of Aug. 31, 1997—just after the black Mercedes that was carrying Diana and her lover, Dodi Fayed, entered Paris’s winding Place de l’Alma tunnel—a black motorbike and two cars (one dark and one white) entered the underpass in a tight formation. The white car approached and quickly brushed the side of the Mercedes, nudging it off kilter and allowing the motorbike to surge ahead. Then a great flash of light (likely a strobe light)—followed by a thunderous slam,...

    LONDON – British police say they are examining newly received information relating to the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, and that officers are assessing the information's "relevance and credibility."

The force stressed that it was not reopening the investigation into the 1997 deaths of Diana and Fayed, who were killed in a car crash in Paris. Sky News reported that an unnamed source said the new information...

    When Diana, the 'People's Princess' died, Tony Blair felt a duty to 'protect the monarchy from itself'. Diana, Princess of Wales was down to earth, charming and intelligent, but also stubborn and prone to be over-emotional, says Mr Blair. He recalls meeting the Princess at Chequers in July 1997, the month before she died, saying he felt an uneasiness about her relationship with Dodi Fayed but could not put his finger on why. He says she did not appreciate him broaching the subject with her. “We were both, in our own way, manipulators” — good at grasping the feelings of...

    The Princess Diana Memorial Fund has given almost £2million to the Bill Clinton Foundation - even though the former US President betrayed a promise he made to Diana to ban landmines. The news has shocked the Princess’s many supporters who still remember how, despite his pledge, Mr Clinton ultimately bowed to Pentagon pressure and refused to sign a treaty forbidding use of the weapons. The US still uses landmines in hotspots such as the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea. Under the Clinton administration, American agents also bugged Diana’s phone calls when she stayed with her friend Lucia Fletcher...

    Mohamed Fayed has accused the Duke of Edinburgh of being a "racist Nazi" who ordered MI6 to assassinate Diana, Princess of Wales, because she was pregnant with a Muslim baby. In a series of extraordinary allegations at the inquest into Diana’s death, Mr Fayed also accused her former husband the Prince of Wales of plotting her "murder" so he could marry his new "crocodile wife" Camilla Parker Bowles. Mr Fayed told the princess’s High Court inquest that he had fought a 10 year battle against a vast, international conspiracy encompassing both the British and French Establishments as he tried to...

Richard Tomlinson, who worked for MI6 in the early 1990s, told the High Court he had seen a two page document, drawn up in 1992, detailing three plans to kill Mr Milosevic. Mr Tomlinson said the plan was shown to him by a senior MI6 officer referred to as "A" who argued that a crash in a tunnel would mean fewer...

At a coroner's inquest into Diana's death, Paul Burrell testified that Diana's mother, the late Frances Shand-Kydd, had destroyed much of Diana's private papers.

The report also said Diana was not pregnant, that she was not engaged to marry Dodi Fayed, and that their chauffeur was drunk and driving at more than 60 mph — twice the local speed limit — when their car crashed while being chased by photographers. The inquiry, which largely confirmed previous findings by French investigators, also said there was no reason to suspect the involvement of...

    Because We Don't Know, Jack ... * Volume 1 Issue 10 August 15, 2006 Today's NBC "First Read" questioned the viability of Jack Murtha's 41-campaign "Cut and Run" Tour. Here's what NBC had to say: As of today, Democratic Rep. John Murtha's supposed 41-candidate tour seems to be more myth than reality. Murtha communications director Megan Grote says of the previously reported number of 41 candidates or districts, "We don't know where that number came from." Per Grote, Murtha is planning to campaign for Democratic candidates, but the office doesn't yet know for whom or when. It could be around...

    AN Italian magazine today sparked uproar in the UK by publishing a picture of the late Princess Diana in the wreckage of the car crash that killed her. Harrods owner Mohammed Al Fayed, whose son Dodi also died in the car crash said he was "sad and angry" over the photo. "This heartless pursuit of money brings shame on those responsible for producing such a vile production," he said. "It makes me sad and angry that a magazine would reproduce an image of the princess as she clung desperately to life." A photo of the princess being given oxygen at...
  • Anyone else ever wonder this about Dodi and Diana?

    Does anyone or has anyone else ever wondered if the muslim terrorists had anything to do with the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed? If Diana and Dodi had married she would not have converted to Islam he would have had to convert to the anglican church. Dodi and his father were heavy money people in the muslim world. The terrorists did not want the son of Al Fayed to marry a christian. Not that the wedding would ever have happened. He was her summer fling. She was not pregnant and they were not getting married. Of course if...

    Ian's got the video of Murtha on Meet The Press. Transcript here. After criticizing Karl Rove's "fat backside," Murtha put forth his fat-headed Okinawa plan: MR. RUSSERT: You say redeploy. Again, Mr. Rove challenges that comment. Let’s listen and give you again a chance to respond to the White House. (Videotape, Monday): MR. ROVE: Congressman Murtha said, “Let’s redeploy them immediately to another country in the Middle East. Let’s get out of Iraq and go to another country.” My question is, what country would take us? What country would say after the United States cut and run from Iraq, what...

      Murtha speech gets cheers and jeers By Richard Robbins TRIBUNE-REVIEW Sunday, May 14, 2006 U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha -- one of the most vocal critics of President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq -- drew cheers and boos during his commencement speech at Seton Hill University on Saturday when he once again called for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops. "We don't care. This isn't about graduation," Leonard Pierce, of North Huntingdon, the parent of a graduate, called out several times from the audience. The catcalls prompted shouts from other audience members that Murtha should be allowed...

    Irey files to challenge Murtha Barbara S. Miller Wednesday, March 08, 2006 Washington County Commissioner Diana L. Irey, an all-but-announced Republican congressional candidate, has taken the first formal step toward a bid to unseat veteran Democratic U.S. Rep. John Murtha. Neither Irey nor her media consultant, John Brabender, returned phone calls for comment Tuesday after Irey's name was listed among those having filed as candidates in Harrisburg, and her secretary said she would not be in the Washington County commissioners' office, where she took few questions last week on her pending decision. "Petitions are being circulated. If I'm going to...

    A British official conducting a coroner's inquiry into Princess Diana's death reportedly thinks American and French intelligence agencies may be able to shed new light on what happened that night in August 1997 as Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, fled paparazzi. The allegations read like something out of a James Bond novel — that U.S. secret agents had bugged Diana's cellular phone and that her driver that night in Paris was a French spy. Lord Stevens, the British official investigating Diana's death, has reportedly subpoenaed more than 1,000 pages of transcripts from U.S. authorities, who were monitoring Diana's calls...

    The crisis engulfing the White House has forced the Prince of Wales to alter his plans to visit hurricane-ravaged New Orleans over the next week. A visit to the city was planned by Clarence House and Downing Street to display the compassionate side of the Duchess of Cornwall. However, the trip has been put on hold by the White House, which is anxious that it may draw attention back to President George Bush's much-criticised response to the Katrina victims. The New Orleans visit has been left off the itinerary and, if it happens at all, will be little more than...

    LONDON (AFP) - Britain's royal family forced the late Princess Diana to blood test her younger son, Prince Harry, to prove he was not the offspring of an affair with an army officer, according to a newspaper report. Diana, who died in 1997, did not tell Harry why his blood was being taken, the Sun newspaper said in extracts from a book by Simone Simmons, an "energy healer" billed as a former close friend and confidante of the princess. Senior royals, notably Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, feared that their son, Prince Charles, who was married to Diana, might not...

    Diana, Princess of Wales, took cocaine and was worried it would kill her, according to new claims today. Friend and confidante Simone Simmons makes the claim in her controversial book Diana: The Last Word, in which she also alleges the Princess had a relationship with John F Kennedy Jr. In the book, serialised in The Sun, Ms Simmons insists that Diana told her a boyfriend, who was a habitual user, once urged her to try the drug. She said the experience was so frightening for the Princess that she vowed not to use it again and help addicts. The 49-year-old...

She refused but agreed to meet him in his luxury suite in the Manhattan hotel overlooking Central Park, according to Simmons, described by the paper as a "friend and confidante" of the late Princess of...
