    REF: “attacks on Lulla”:
    Is this a Fake News or a Fake (staged) Attack?

    Anyone who had the intention of trying to assassinate a few 'petistas' would have used an assault rifle, not a pea-shooter, and would have fired at window level. Investigators from PR, who appear to be making little or no progress, are trying to downplay leaks - that due to all the recent and generalized violence - seem to point to a staged “attack” (by petistas) to create sympathy for poor Lula, after being kicked out of RS and PR.
    I doubt the 'perpetrators' of the 'attack' will be discovered, because when /if they are, the whole thing will have to be hushed up...the PT will probably not persue the matter, being happy enough to have made 'their' point.

    TRUE, considering that:
    - No one had not even minor injuries
    - Their own private/personal security was absent; exactly at THAT moment
    - One of the buses was full of reporters [who practically reported NOTHING]
    - NOBODY saw/heard/knows ANYTHING of substance.

    HOLD ON, the gimmicks have JUST begun; for The Globo, Band [+ MANY Others] & Co. to THRIVE ON!!image/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/main-charges-resize_620/image.jpg

    As I said above, the investigators have not come to any conclusion with damning evidence to prove there was an 'attack' on the convoy....3 bullet holes in the lower half of one bus, from shots which no one knows when were fired, and were not noticed by any of the passengers while the buses were in movement, and 'discovered' only when the buses stopped at a gas station, and the police were not present....highly suspicious....reinforced by the PT's silence.
