Another day another famous American suddenly found dead.
Perhaps I have read too many spy novels, but any time a former Secretary of Defense dies suddenly … while the United States is in the middle of a war with a nuclear power, it brings a lot of questions to people’s minds.
Now, I’m not saying that there was fowl play involved here, however, deaths like these certainly deserve investigations. And, of course, prayers for the victims and his loved ones …
