Reader comment on item: Princess Diana and Arab Conspiracy

Your excellent documentation throughout your site and organization is so helpful. I haven't even finished your book (about hidden hand); here is high profile example of theme in your article of 1997 that will help me understand your book. Between readings, one can process and react to new events unfolding, as well as percolate some past experiences. Thus, the more I read, the better I can do so, thanks in part to the good documentation and organization of info on your part.

P.S. Quite oddly, I had brushes with conspiracy theorists myself some years back and in one case the "hook" that the people were using against me happened to be the name Adnan Khashoggi, and it was done in mainstream Western press. There was even an Eastern thread among those doing that (Greek, pro-Arab, and pro-Iran) that might have unearthed such a "hook" for the purpose. Although my comments here today don't "contribute to the literature" as I guess the majority of folks do, I thought perhaps you'd find them of interest -- at least for confirming that when someone's education expands through new readings as mine is doing, it helps in understanding the "hidden hand" in one's own personal life, which in turn fortifies one to continue the explorations that help illuminate bigger events.
