On July 20, 1993, Foster was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head in Fort Marcy Park, McLean, Virginia. His passing was the highest ranking government official’s death since President John Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
Foster’s mysterious death sparked a firestorm of controversy that engulfed the nation. Was it murder or suicide? The charges leveled against Hillary and Bill Clinton were serious: Foster knew too much. They had killed him. Clinton staffers removed evidence from his office. Must be a cover-up. Investigators never found the fatal bullet. It’s a conspiracy. On and on it went. But who was right?
Inspired by Love & Death, The Murder of Kurt Cobain, by Max Wallace and Ian Halperin, Peschmann, using new information exclusively obtained from the last person who officially saw Foster alive in the White House, and supported by five official investigations comes to a terrible conclusion. Both sides were wrong.
American politics is corrupted. After reading Following Orders, no longer will Americans wonder how Washington became so broken when they see how those in power thwart the rule of law, obstruct justice, and are never held to account.
The Foster murder conspiracies are arguably one of the original Internet murder conspiracies that took on a life of its own. It spawned what has become a steady and dangerous flow of new conspiracies that are echo-chambered, in cult-like formation as if "real" news. Left unchecked, with warnings ignored, these conspiracies metastasized into a cancer with real world consequences.
While there were legitimate issues and abuses of power to be concerned with regarding the Clintons, murdering their friend(s) was not one of them.
Following Orders, is the sequel to The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power.
