Diana Was Assassinated By British Special Forces  -  Really?

Here we go again! They have Princess Diana back in the news. We all thought that not only the chapter, but the book was closed on her and the circumstances surrounding her death. For those of us who thought that, apparently, we were wrong. Another story sprang into the headlines just the other day and looks like it will be there until, yet, another investigation is complete. I have to admit that on the surface the story is a bit intriguing. But, I am also asking myself, "why". C'mon, isn't this a bit too much? I know I am not alone in my thinking.

Motivation

Please don’t misunderstand my motivation for this article. I was a fan of the Princess. She was an attractive and classy lady. The humanitarian work she was doing was admirable. But the fact is she is dead and gone . . . for some years, now. Surely, we don’t want to forget her. But, we don’t want her to be “dragged up” again every time someone on a slow news day sees the opportunity to write a story angle about her that they know we’ll all read. Every thing that happens is not automatically some news story that the world would be interested in. But, if you can find just the right angle, it might be. So, here we go. I just wish they would be more considerated of the family and friends.

Where's the Sensitivity

Do the people who write these things have no heart, no compassion? Don’t they realize that Diana was not just a news figure, but a daughter, mother, sister, and friend to many? Don’t they care that they might open old emotional scars and hurt some feelings? And, yes, the same considerations should hold true for Dodi Al Fayed. He had family and friends, too. Unfortunately, a juicy news story trumps any of those feelings. Do our wonder if Dodi's father is interested in another story about an investigation? Or, if Diana's sons are interested, as well? When can we move on? Leave the families be.

News Reporters

Every journalist is bound to do the job of a journalist. They want to be seen as good at what they do; able to pull it all together, and report the facts in such a way that everyone wants to read their stories. But, they can’t write about just any story. They have to write stories about people and events that the public will be interested in reading. That, especially, includes those that have a great deal of emotional involvement. Reporters rarely write stories about the mudane or uninteresting stuff. Really, we wouldn't expect them to. It's the sensationalism that draws us whether we want to be drawn or not.

No Theory Just Facts

After 16 years the family and friends of Diana are not really interested in another investigation. We know that she was being driven by a drunk driver in a high speed chase and wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Unfortunately, that was the recipe for an epic tragedy. But, all of the conspiracy theories that abound afterward were just that, theories. And, the most recent theory being investigated as I write this is just as unfounded.

Yes, after the information was uncovered the investigation should have taken place. But, did it need to be turned into another worldwide media story? I think not. It’s time to let the Princess rest in peace, and let her loved ones rest in peace.
