Conspiracy theory, you want conspiracy theory? This is what a friend of mine thinks happened. He says he has proof!
Conspiracy Theory -
The oil rig was actually bombed by an illegal Mexican immigrant with lighter
pine underwear and other bad health. He was hired by Al Gore, and posed as an
Iranian officer on board a Syrian-Israeli supplied nuclear submarine. The
intent is to drive down the value of Halliburton (well cementer) stock so as to
upset Wall Street, causing investors to sell all oil stocks and invest in a
caved in coal mine in West Virginia owned by guess who - Al Gore. With the added
coal mine bucks Al can continue to fund his secret time machine project (housed
in an Iceland Volcano so spy planes can't fly over) until he wins the 2000
presidential election. He will then immediately appoint enough Supreme Court
Justices to overturn Roe vs. Wade, thus giving him the son that he always wanted
and at the same time prove that Clinton did indeed have sexual relations with
that woman. He will then have two Nobel prizes (including the one that Vice Prez
Obama never wins), making him the first double Nobel, bow twice at, president of
the global warmed world.
But seriously, I know they will eventually find the cause and I hope they put that knowledge towards preventing future tragedies, and loss of life.
