    Tonight, Michael Savage briefly mentioned that the story of Jack Wheeler's demise, which occurred late in December 2010, had completely disappeared from the news. Savage said we should Google so I did. Despite the o'er suspicious death of this West Point man who served three US Presidents, the questions about his death mostly dried up by February. I did find one USA Today article from May. But I also found this! O = Zero By Jack Wheeler Thursday, 05 June 2008 The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit.

    Wheeler: Super Bloodshot Eyes Eric ShawnJanuary 6, 2011 John Wheeler walked into a Wilmington, Delaware sandwich shop less than 24 hours before he was killed and had “super bloodshot eyes,” according to the person who sold him coffee.

"His eyes were the most bloodshot I have ever seen,” he told Fox News, saying that it appeared he had been wearing the same clothes for a long time, because the cuffs on his white shirt were filthy. But the clerk...

    An unfitting end to an illustrious career. That's how several West Point classmates viewed the New Year's Eve discovery of a prominent defense expert's body in a Wilmington landfill. Two weeks after Newark, Del., police identified John "Jack" P. Wheeler 3d, 66, of New Castle, as a homicide victim, investigators still have released few particulars about the case, allowing conspiracy theorists of all kinds to draw pictures of their own. Although the case was deemed a homicide, police have declined to list a cause, raising questions about whether Wheeler was drugged, shot, beaten, or stabbed. New information from police sources...

    APROMINENT Philadelphia crime sleuth is speculating that the region's high-profile murder mystery - the shocking discovery of ex-Pentagon official John "Jack" Wheeler III in a Wilmington landfill - might not be a murder at all. William Fleisher, an ex-cop who co-founded Philadelphia's murder-solving Vidocq Society, said that the discovery of eyewitnesses and surveillance video of a disoriented Wheeler before he died suggests that the 66-year-old man had suffered a head or brain injury. And that apparent disorientation, Fleisher speculated, could have caused Wheeler to voluntarily crawl into a trash Dumpster - either seeking shelter, as happens sometimes among the homeless,...
