Lady Diana was killed in a highly suspicious car crash, after successfully leading efforts to ban production of land mines.

1997 was the start of Operation Gladio/B, according to whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. The name of "Al Qaeda" and "Ossama Bin Laden" were more or less unknown in the US population at this point, but a campaign was started to try to raise awareness and fear of them.

Dianas note to burrell.jpg

On 31 August 1997, Diana Princess of Wales was killed along with two other people after injuries sustained in a suspicious car crash. A 2007/2008 inquest determined that she had been "unlawfully killed". Her husband, Prince Charles was not called to testify, although two copies of the Mishcon note had surface, in which she wrote of her fear that she would be killed in a staged car crash.[1][2]
