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 they badger him about his new role as Chairman of the John Birch Society. He easily handles them and answers questions concerning the Elite's Conspiracy for a One World Government.
About Larry McDonald's Death from Wiki: Larry McDonald missed his Sunday Korean Air Flight 007 flight because thunderstorms in New York City delayed McDonald's connecting flight from Atlanta. McDonald could have boarded a Pan American World Airways flight to Seoul, but he preferred the lower fares of Korean Air Lines and chose to wait for the next KAL flight. Carroll Hubbard, a Kentucky Congressman, planned to join McDonald on the flight. At the last minute Hubbard canceled his reservations to accept a Kentucky speaking engagement.
On September 1, 1983, Larry McDonald died when Soviet fighters shot down Flight 007 after the plane entered Soviet airspace. McDonald was the only U.S. congressman ever killed by the Soviets during the Cold War. North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms and Idaho Senator Steve Symms, both Republicans, were scheduled to fly to Seoul on KAL 007, but instead flew on KAL 015 which, with KAL 007, stopped at Anchorage airport for refueling before the next leg of the trip to Seoul (Shootdown, R.W. Johnson, Viking Penguin, New York, N.Y. 1986, pg. 3-4). The trip was on the invitation of the President of South Korea for the 30th year celebration U.S.-South Korean Mutual Defense Treaty. A few hours after the shootdown, Media reported that KAL 007 had landed safely on Sakhalin Island. Larry McDonald's press aid, Tommy Toles, was informed by the U.S. Embassy in Korea, relaying the report from the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, that "the plane had landed safely in Korea". In addition, the Washington based Federal Aviation Administration informed McDonald's press aid that their Japanese counterpart organization , the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau had informed them that KAL 007 had made a safe landing on Sakhalin and "it is confirmed by the Manifest that Congressman McDonald is on board". Within a few short hours, this had been broadcast by the media, only to have, within another few short hours, the media broadcasting that all passengers and crew had perished in an explosion over the waters off Sakhalin and subsequent crash in the sea. After McDonald's death, a special election was held to fill his seat in Congress. McDonald's widow, Kathy, was a candidate, but she lost to George "Buddy" Darden. Much of the congressional district McDonald represented would later be represented by Newt Gingrich.
