In the days since the horrible tragedy in Newtown, Conn., investigators have been slow to release any additional information to the press, leaving considerable room for potential conspiracy theorists to fill the airwaves.
Michael Harris, a former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and GOP campaign finance chairman, blamed "Israeli revenge" for the "the terrorist attack in Connecticut" in an internationally televised interview on PressTV.com.
During the interview, Harris said the nature and prevalence of conflicting police reports and contradictory information in the wake of the shooting led him to believe that there were outside forces involved.
"The facts are now becoming obvious. This is another case where Israel has chosen violence and terrorism where their bullying in Washington has failed. Israel believes the US 'threw them under the bus,' particularly after the recent Gaza war, allowing Israel to be humiliated in the United Nations," Harris said.
"Their response was to stage a terror attack, targeting America in the most hideous and brutal way possible, in fact, an Israeli 'signature attack,' one that butchers children, one reminiscent of the attacks that killed so many children in Gaza," he added.
Adam Lanza burst into the elementary school sometime after 9 a.m. armed with four firearms and wearing a bullet-proof vest, according to police. Once he arrived at Sandy Hook Elementary School, he is said to have unloaded more than 100 rounds with his guns, killing 27, including his own mother- she was found dead in her home.
While the events of the case are still being sorted out, Harris seems certain that there were entities involved in the shooting.
"This is exactly what Israel did in Norway; the political party that voted sanctions against Israel was retaliated against by a 'lone gunman' who killed 77 children. This is what Israel always does, they go after the children … Nobody buys the 'lone gunman' story anymore," he said.
