TO THE FLUMMOXED:

Sara Jane Moore's Interview Fallout (Geri Spieler, 5/29/09, Huffington Post)

Her story against the backdrop of 1970s San Francisco is critical to our understanding dangers we don't even see.

Many are flummoxed at her release, shocked at what some see as a lack of remorse, and a few say that her appearance is an "irrelevant" issue.

Is the act to attempt to assassinate a President irrelevant especially when the threat comes packaged in the guise of a nice, middle-class housewife and mother?

If you were standing on that sidewalk next to Sara Jane Moore when she was 45 years old, would you have expected her to pull a gun from her purse, aim and pull the trigger at the head of the U.S. President?

The fact that she missed does not diminish the act. She still meant to kill him. Gerald Ford would tell you the same thing he told me in 2003: "There is no difference in the act of assassination whether the person succeeded not. The intent to kill is the same."

There was nothing irrelevant about San Francisco in 1975 -- and Sara Jane Moore was in the middle of it all

So many unanswered questions: Huffington Post readers wondered what Sara Jane meant when she when she said the radical leftist groups pushed her to the edge?


Our interview with Ms Spieler.
