Around May of 1983, approximately 4 months before being shot down in KAL007, Congressman Larry McDonald takes on Pat Buchanan and Tom Braden on Crossfire as ...
I was going on 12 years old. It was a Sunday. Sunday tv was boring. A funeral. I had gone over to my friend Alan's house to hang out with him. His father always had it on PBS. Alan was busy doing something in his room and I was waiting for him. I had never been interested in ANYTHING on PBS or politics before. But I heard the talk coming from the tv and found myself drawn to it. This interview burned itself into my mind and NEVER left. It was relegated to the back of my mind for many years however.
In 2007 when I began to listen to dead men and what they had said before being killed (William Cooper, Phil Schneider, etc), immediately my mind brought this interview back to me and I searched it out on YouTube. I had no idea he was shot out of the air 4 months later, though it didn't suprise me one bit. This interview 'set' me as a watchman from 83 on.
