Conspiracy Corner – John McAfee – Super-spy!

So, have you heard the tale of John McAfee? Maybe you know him as the guy whose anti-virus software you run (although he claims to not use it himself). Maybe you heard about him making drugs in Belize, or heard that he claimed he was making drugs just to pull a prank on drug users? Perhaps you know of his being sought for questioning about the murder of a fellow ex-pat in Belize and, rather than going to the police station, fled to Guatemala.

Or, just maybe, you know of him as a super-spy who preys on Central American countries.

Whatever you think (and maybe you think like these people), these are my thoughts (and you can borrow them if you like):
