A prominent writer, openly critical of the US government. While writing an expose of 9/11 when he was found dead.

Hunter S. Thompson was a US writer. He founded the idea of gonzo journalism. He doubted the US government's 9-11 official narrative about the 19 men with box cutters and was writing an alternative account when he was found dead.


America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable”
Hunter S. Thompson [1]

September 11

After the September 11 attacks, Thompson voiced skepticism regarding the official story on who was responsible for the attacks. He speculated to several interviewers that it may have been a False flag conducted by the U.S. Government or with the government's assistance, though admitting he had no way to prove his theory.[2][3]

US Deep state

In 2004, Thompson wrote: "Nixon was a professional politician, and I despised everything he stood for — but if he were running for president this year against the evil BushCheney gang, I would happily vote for him."[4]


The New York Times headlined its reports of Thompson's death Hunter S. Thompson, 67, Author, Commits Suicide and termed him a "counter cultural hero".[5] As of June 2016, Wikipedia begins its short section on his death with the claim that Thompson " died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at Owl Farm".[6] He was working on a book about 9/11 when he died. At that time, criticism of the UC government's official narrative was comparatively rare.[citation needed]
