Alleged former DoD veteran claims conspiracy behind pop star’s death

In what appears to be the Internet’s latest and greatest hoax, a whistleblower who claims he worked for the Department of Defense purports to have leaked Michael Jackson’s final phone call before his death, during which the pop star voices his fear of a government conspiracy to murder him.
Robert Connors, about which no information can be found online, claims he worked with the DoD for 20 years after serving in “active duty campaigns” in Iran and Vietnam.
The whistleblower goes on to claim he was involved in Operation Sedgwick, an offshoot of MK-Ultra, which revolved around “the control of the African-American population and the urban youth through music.”
During Michael Jackson’s alleged final phone call before his death, the pop star warns of a plot by powerful forces to murder him via a staged drugs overdose.
“It’s not the government, it’s more than the government,” the voice on the clip states, during an alleged conversation with Jackson’s former manager Dieter Wiesner.
Connors threatens to release more audio and video tapes concerning “Operation Sedgwick” unless authorities come clean about the program by September 23rd.
The whistleblower’s body language in the clip does not lend itself to authenticity, and although the voice on the audio recording does sound like Michael Jackson, the scene feels scripted and acted out.
Like all good Internet hoaxes, the story plays into viral conspiracies about the gang shooting of hip-hip icon Tupac Shakur and the use of rap music as a form of mind control.
Speculation that Jackson was killed because he was about to expose the Illuminati’s control of the music industry, and that this was the reason behind the child abuse allegations leveled against him, has also raged on fringe conspiracy forums for years. In 2002, Jackson gave an anti-music industry speech  during which he held up a sign which read, “$ony Kills Music.”
The whole cultural phenomenon of the Internet hoax is fascinating. There are so many verifiable, documented cover-ups that we can manifestly prove and yet somehow people aren’t that interested in the tangible. They seem to be more interested in the mysterious, the theatrical, and are even willing to suspend their own disbelief simply to revel in the allure of the murky conspiracy.
