Please post any additional source information, suggestions or recommendations for whether the DSL should list a particular name or how...

This just in (March 8, 2004) concerning Sharlott Donovan:

On the eighth anniversary of Ann's death, I would like to set the record straight---- for her. There is no real mystery surrounding her death. She was severely depressed, in over-her-head financially and going through her second divorce---this was especially hard due to her strict biblical upbringing. I am sure Ann took her own life. Most of her friends, including myself, received a handwritten letter by U.S. mail from her a couple of days after her death saying goodbye and telling them what she planned to do; and what she wanted them to have. These letters were apparently written/mailed the day before she died. Please remove her from your list of unexplained deaths, in life, she was a person who paid attention to detail and always liked the facts straight. She does not belong on your list. An Anonymous Friend.

I will leave Sharlott’s name on the list for a few months for any further discussion before making the deletion.

WorldNetDaily.com 11/30/00 J R Nyquist "…… Not so long ago I interviewed a man employed by one of our intelligence agencies. Let us say the man's name is John. His testimony reflects the feelings of many people who defend this country. ……. The bottom line with John is this: He does not trust Clinton or Gore. In fact, within John's agency there have long been rumors about Clinton's political machine back in Arkansas. There are stories about drug running and money laundering. There are also suspicions, among many, that Clinton and possibly Gore are aligned with longstanding ideological enemies of the United States. ……John went on to discuss the defense problem under Clinton. "It's just obvious the man despises the U.S. military," he observed. "The part I don't understand is how he survived his first term." ….. John didn't explain what he meant by that. Perhaps he didn't have to. Other sources I've spoken to have alleged the existence of secret tapes smuggled out of Eastern Europe in the mid-1990s. These tapes supposedly were used to record the 1970 recruitment of a young American college student by Czech intelligence. Thirty years later the student is president of the United States. An incredible allegation, of course. Totally unbelievable. It is not something that we journalists should dare to repeat, especially since the tapes have disappeared. One is forced to regard it as an unsubstantiated rumor. But maybe that rumor explains John's inability to understand how Clinton "survived his first term." Maybe John knows something more, which he doesn't dare explain. ……. If the story of Clinton's recruitment by the Czechs is true, where are the Czech tapes now? The man who had the tapes, a former communist official, is conveniently dead. It appears that he may have been slowly, very slowly, poisoned. After an investigation into the whereabouts of his family, I learned that his wife is living more comfortably than otherwise might be expected, and a Russian "gentleman" is living directly across the hall -- keeping close watch. ……Make of it what you will. …….I asked John if his colleagues thought Clinton was a Marxist. ……John hesitated a moment, then replied, "It would be surprising to know how many people talk this way." Then he returned to the subject of strange deaths among those who get too close to the Clintons. "I've talked to some police officers involved in this," he said. ….."

WorldNetDaily.com 11/30/00 J R Nyquist "……I asked John if he thought the White House was penetrated by foreign intelligence agencies. "Anyone who thinks we're not penetrated [at the White House] is naive," he answered. Then he explained the problem that some American intelligence officers have with the present administration. Some agents feel that somebody has to be told. "It's a protective mechanism," he explained. "It's much easier to make something disappear if it has very little exposure." ……. One way to make something disappear is to kill the guy who knows too much. "Hits in broad daylight," is how John describes it. In one instance, he had dinner with a colleague and three days later the man was dead. "I don't know what he was doing," said John. "He must have stumbled across something he shouldn't have." …….John also spoke of other murders. He spoke of an agent from another government agency. "It's the same crap," he said. "If Al Gore wins the election the republic won't survive another four years." ……If you think John is exaggerating, you should read Bill Gertz's latest book, "The China Threat." Patriotic individuals like John provided Gertz with access to highly secret documents that reveal Clinton's duplicity and Gore's complete indifference to American security. …….."

 

Susan Coleman/Suzane Coleman/Suzanne Coleman

Rumors were circulating in Arkansas of an affair with Bill Clinton. She was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head at 7 1/2 months pregnant. Death was an apparent suicide. (1)


Suzanne Coleman - Had affair with Clinton when he was attorney general. Died of "suicide" with gunshot wound to the back of her head. No autopsy allowed. Was seven months pregnant at time of her death. She had told friends it was Bill Clinton's child. (2)

Suzane Coleman - reportedly had an affair with Clinton. Was seven months pregnant at the time she was found dead of a gun shot wound to the back of the head, ruled suicide. At the time of Susan Coleman's suicide, Bill Clinton was her law professor. In 1992 an overzealous supporter of George Bush hired investigators to probe this girl's 1977 suicide. They found no evidence that the two had even had an affair. It was an old rumor and a baseless one, and even a determined attempt at muckraking turned up nothing to substantiate it. (3)

Kevin Ives & Don Henry

Initial cause of death was reported to be the result of falling asleep on a railroad track in Arkansas on August 23, 1987. This ruling was reported by the State medical examiner Fahmy Malak. Later it was determined that Kevin died from a crushed skull prior to being placed on the tracks. Don had been stabbed in the back. Rumors indicate that they might have stumbled upon a Mena drug operation. (1)


Kevin Ives & Don Henry Initial cause of death was reported to be the result of falling asleep on railroad tracks in Arkansas on Aug. 23, 1987. This ruling was reported by the state medical examiner Fahmy Malak, appointed at the pleasure of Gov. Bill Clinton. Later it was determined that Kevin died from a crushed skull prior to being placed on the tracks. Don had been stabbed in the back. Rumors indicate that they might have stumbled upon part of the Mena drug operation. (2)

Kevin Ives and Don Henry - seventeen-year-old boys who apparently saw something related to drugs in Mena by accident late at night. Officially ruled an accidental death on the train tracks, but evidence shows they died before being placed on the tracks - one of a crushed skull and the other of a knife wound in the back. We're now entering an involved segment of the list wherein a number of deaths will be said to be tied to those of Ives and Henry. Ives and Henry were murdered, something a piss-poor medical examiner missed when he didn't bother to look beyond the obvious. Henry and Ives were run over by a train on 23 Aug 1987. Dr. Fahmy Malak, Arkansas' former state medical examiner, ruling the deaths accidental, said the teens fell asleep on the tracks after smoking marijuana. A 1988 Saline County grand jury determined the boys were murdered and their bodies afterwards laid on the tracks, but no other conclusions were reached and no indictments were returned. The FBI is still investigating the deaths. A number of Malak's determinations had been challenged and overturned during his career. He certainly wasn't always a conscientious medical examiner, and his Ives and Henry rulings were only two of many such botchings. Getting back to the real meat of who killed the boys, nothing ties Ives and Henry to Clinton. Though various of these lists will claim the boys accidentally stumbled onto a "protected" drug drop and were killed for it, there's no reason to believe even that. In a 25 May 1990 hearing before U.S. Magistrate Henry Jones Jr., Katherine Brightop said her ex-boyfriend Paul William Criswell told her he and three other men were involved in the teenagers' deaths. Brightop said Criswell told her the boys tried to steal cocaine from Callaway's home and they were caught and beaten to death before their bodies were placed on the tracks.

Ripping off a drug dealer will get you killed. (3)

Homicide - Don Ives (Witness to Mena, skull crushed, left to be run over by train)
Homicide - Kevin Henry (Witness to Mena, stabbed, left to be run over by train) (4) Sources:

In 1987 Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak ruled the deaths of teenagers Kevin Ives and Don Henry, found run over by a train, "accidental," saying the boys had smoked too much marijuana and fallen asleep on the tracks. A second autopsy and grand jury probe, finding evidence of a knife wound and beatings, declared it "definitely a homicide." Then in 1989 with the controversy over the train deaths case growing, a commission headed by then Arkansas Department of Health Director Joycelyn Elders cleared Dr. Malak. Nine months later, Gov. Clinton proposed a $32,000 raise for the medical examiner. A Malak ruling in a 1981 death case involving Clinton's mother, nurse-anesthetist Virginia Kelley, had helped her avoid intense legal scrutiny. In 1991, a month before Clinton announced his presidential run, Dr. Malak was promoted to a new job as a Health Department consultant to Dr. Elders."

J. Orlin Grabbe ".On Aug. 23, 1987, the bodies of two teenagers-- Don Henry, 16, and Kevin Ives, 17--were found close to Shobe Road near Alexander, Arkansas. They had been run over by a Union Pacific train. The state medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, ruled that the deaths were accidental--saying the two boys had smoked too much marijuana, and then had fallen asleep on the railroad tracks. But an Atlanta, Ga., forensic pathologist named Joe Burton said that prior to being run over by the train, Don Henry had been stabbed in the back, while Kevin Ives had been beaten in the face. A grand jury ruled the deaths a double homicide. police chief of Alexander, John Brown, acknowledges he obtained a taped confession from one of the murderers of the two boys. The Benton Courier . "U.S. Attorney Paula Casey, contacted at her Little Rock office today, was asked if she was aware of the confession to which Brown refers. " 'I think that, under the circumstances, the best thing for me to say for now is "no comment," ' Casey said. "Brown's response continues: " 'Until now I have avoided talking about this confession at the request of federal investigators. " ' Because of the magnitude and suspects named in this confession, it was impossible to pursue this case at the state level. ."

At the time of the Ives/Henry first autopsies, Arkansas State Medical Examiner, Dr. Fahmy Malak boss was the head of the State Medical Commission, Dr. Joycelyn Elders. Dr. Elders answered directly to then Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.

CBN News 7/29/98 Gary Lane "… But what caused Dr. Malak to arrive at such an outrageous determination of death? Then-Governor Bill Clinton said his state medical examiner was overworked and "stressed out." Former Clinton employee and well-known Clinton critic Larry Nichols says Mr. Clinton was an accomplice in concealing the truth.But why would Mr. Clinton defend Malak, although his rulings had been questioned in more than 20 cases? Dateline NBC and The Los Angeles Times have suggested a motive. They've documented Fahmy Malak's role in clearing Bill Clinton's mother, the late Virginia Kelley, of wrongdoing in the negligent death of a teenage girl at Ouachita Memorial Hospital in 1981. The Los Angeles Times reported that Dr. Malak's ruling helped Clinton's mother avoid scrutiny in the death of patient Susie Deer. The Times quoted the Polaski County coroner as saying there was a lot of speculation that "Malak's ruling in favor of Clinton's mother was a factor" in the governor's decision to retain him as state medical examiner. Then-Governor Clinton said he resented any implications of a connection, and the governor's office proceeded to shut down further investigation of the train deaths. Dr. Malak was eventually removed as state medical examiner, but was given a job as a $70,000 per year consultant to the Arkansas Department of Health. Regardless, a grand jury determined that Kevin Ives and Don Henry had been murdered. But why? Who would want to kill two teens who were just out "deer spotting" on that fateful August night? . "

Email 6/1/99 Jean Duffy [Ives and Henry] "... Linda Ives did not know, at the time, that my task force's investigation included the murders of Kevin and Don, and I did not know that by the time I left the state, Linda knew Harmon was part of the cover-up of the murders. It was not until 1994 that we met, shared information, and realized that the corruption and cover-up expanded beyond the county and state levels. We had each been contacted by the FBI after an eye witness came forward and passed a polygraph test placing Dan Harmon on the tracks(7) with Kevin and Don the night they were murdered. Linda and I were more encouraged than ever before. We had complete confidence in the FBI. By late 1994, we learned that Kevin and Don were murdered by law enforcement officials because they stumbled upon a drug drop from an airplane..... As soon as the Mena connection was made,(10) I knew the FBI investigation would be shut down.(11) The agent argued; "Who has the power to shut down the FBI." My response; "Who, indeed." (Bill Clinton was president by this time.) Not only was the FBI case closed, Linda and Larry Ives were told there was no evidence that a crime had even been committed...... Aside from obtaining our primary goal of exposing the murders and cover-ups, it is particularly satisfying that our non-partisan plea for justice is opening the eyes of people who once had blind-partisan-faith....* Jean Duffey: jean@idmedia.com mailto:jean@idmedia.com* Linda Ives: linda@idmedia.com mailto:linda@idmedia.com..."

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE 8/5/99 Linda Satter "...The mother of one of two boys found dead on Saline County railroad tracks nearly 10 years ago, in a case that spawned two grand jury investigations but no arrests, testified Wednesday in defense of a filmmaker who made a widely distributed video about the case.Linda Ives, whose son, Kevin Ives, 17, was killed along with his friend Don Henry, 16, testified for three hours on behalf of Patrick Matrisciana of Hemet, Calif., who produced the 60-minute program Obstruction of Justice: the Mena Connection. It has sold about 300,000 copies. Two Pulaski County sheriff's lieutenants, Jay Campbell and Kirk Lane, sued Matrisciana in 1997. They contended that he defamed them by mentioning their names at the end of the film, along with four other men, as "suspects implicated in Ives/Henry murders and coverups." Campbell and Lane, who as deputies in another jurisdiction didn't participate in the investigation of the train deaths, blame former Saline County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Harmon for drawing them into the case. Harmon, now in prison on drug and racketeering convictions arising partly from corrupt acts he performed while in his official capacity, was a private lawyer at the time of the boys' deaths. But he took a special interest in the case and was appointed a special prosecutor to present the case to a Saline County grand jury. Testimony this week has revealed that, unknown to the public, Harmon was the target at the time of at least one investigation into drug trafficking. Campbell and Lane, then narcotics deputies who were looking into the allegations about Harmon, contend that he heard about their investigation and cast them as suspects in the train deaths solely to taint their credibility and thwart their investigation...."

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE 8/5/99 Linda Satter "...Ives acknowledged Wednesday that Harmon called her the day before Campbell and Lane were to appear before a grand jury and told her that "the killers" would appear before the grand jury the next day. Ives said she trusted Harmon at the time, but she has since come to include him among the list of suspects in the boys' deaths and ensuing coverup....The video was released in 1996 before Harmon's convictions. They [plaintiffs] say the allegations have damaged their personal and professional reputations. But Matrisciana, using the First Amendment as a defense, contends that the two sources he relied on to make the film -- Linda Ives and a former Saline County deputy prosecutor, Jean Duffey -- both believed the video was accurate when they made it. Thus, Matrisciana contends, he cannot be found to have had a "reckless disregard for the truth" and thus be guilty of libel. ....."

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE 8/5/99 Linda Satter "...Among the information that has emerged is that John Brown, who reopened the investigation as an investigator under a new Saline County sheriff, Judy Pridgen, took a handwritten "confession" in May 1993 from Sharline Wilson, who once dated Harmon. Though she would later recant her statement, Wilson named Harmon and two other men, one of whom was later killed, as having had a role in beating and stabbing the boys to death before laying their bodies across the tracks. Brown testified Tuesday that he corroborated "85 percent" of what Wilson told him....."

8/6/99 Alan Fram Linda Satter Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "…At the center of allegations that two undercover officers participated in the 1987 killings of two Saline County boys is a Little Rock man who left the federal courts building in Little Rock this week with a "scared look" in his eyes and hasn't been seen since, a defense attorney said Thursday. John Wesley Hall Jr., who is representing Patrick Matrisciana of Hemet, Calif., in a federal defamation lawsuit, made those assertions Thursday in seeking permission to introduce normally unallowable "hearsay evidence" of what the missing witness, Ronnie Godwin, once said. U.S. District Judge Warren K. Urbom of Lincoln, Neb., who is presiding over the trial as a visiting judge, told Hall he would rule on the question as the defense case nears an end, if Godwin still hasn't been found by a private detective that Hall hired Tuesday. Godwin had been subpoenaed as a plaintiff's witness but left the courthouse this week after being excused without testifying. Hall said that Godwin claimed to have been "followed" from the building….."

8/6/99 Alan Fram Linda Satter Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "…Linda Ives, the mother of one of the slain boys, Kevin Ives, 17, testified earlier Thursday that Godwin claimed in 1987 to have seen two men grab Ives and his friend, Don Henry, 16, outside the Ranchette grocery store in Alexander and beat them, then forced them into a police car on the night they were killed. Godwin's description of the two assailants matched those of Jay Campbell and Kirk Lane, then undercover narcotics officers for the Pulaski County sheriff's office. However, a police report states that Godwin admitted he'd been drinking before stopping at the store where the two boys allegedly ran to a pay telephone to seek help and were grabbed. Police also quoted Godwin's mother as saying he can't be believed when he's been drinking…."

8/6/99 Alan Fram Linda Satter Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "…Ives testified that she believes Campbell and Lane killed her son and Henry, based on Godwin's remarks, corroboration from another man named "Gerry" and remarks of John Brown of Mabelvale, a former Saline County detective who looked into the boys' deaths years later under a new sheriff, Judy Pridgen. Campbell and Lane, now sheriff's office lieutenants, are suing Matrisciana for defaming them at the end of a 60-minute videotape, Obstruction of Justice: the Mena Connection, that Matrisciana produced in 1996…. Brown, while acknowledging that he had heard the "Campbell and Lane scenario," as the allegations are known, testified this week that he didn't personally investigate the claims or develop Campbell or Lane as suspects. He said the women knew that, and that he warned Matrisciana that "any such statement was uncorroborated and I did not think there was anything to it." Brown said he told the filmmaker that he "should not implicate Jay Campbell or Kirk Lane. ... If he makes such statements, he could be sued."…"

8/6/99 Alan Fram Linda Satter Arkansas Democrat-Gazette "… Campbell and Lane say Harmon tried to paint them as suspects because, unbeknownst to the public at the time, they were investigating drug-trafficking allegations against him, and he had found that out and wanted to discredit them. Harmon is now in prison on drug and racketeering charges. Brown's testimony supported that assertion. He said Harmon "sidetracked me to them, and to other people, saying, 'Have you checked them out?' " Hall asked, "Did he do anything to interfere with your investigation?" Brown replied, "Anything and everything that he could, yes sir."…"

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 8/10/99 Linda Satter "…A federal jury awarded more than half a million dollars Monday to two Pulaski County sheriff's lieutenants after finding that a California filmmaker defamed them in a film about the deaths of two Saline County boys in 1987. After three hours of deliberation Friday, followed by seven hours Monday, the seven-woman, five-man panel returned a unanimous verdict against Patrick Matrisciana of Hemet, Calif. They found that in his 1996 documentary, Obstruction of Justice: the Mena Connection, Matrisciana libeled veteran sheriff's deputies Jay Campbell, 38, and Kirk Lane, 37, in accusing them and four other law enforcement officials of murdering the boys and covering it up. The other officials, also named at the end of the film, have not sued….."

www.kark.com 8/12/99 Kim Miller "...During the last week, Sharline Wilson was referred to by investigators as an eyewitness to a 1987 Saline County murder that remains unsolved. Now, Sharline Wilson has told News4 what she knows about the mysterious deaths of Kevin Ives and Don Henry. Wilson says she cannot directly connect anyone with the murders of the boys--whose bodies were found on railroad tracks. But she says she dropped then-prosecutor Dan Harmon off near the tracks that night, and waited while he went to pick up a drug drop. She says that when Harmon returned, he had blood on his pants--as if he had wiped his hands on them. Wilson says that her later testimony about Harmon's involvement with drugs got her into trouble. "In 1992, I was arrested by Dan Harmon and the 7th Judicial District Drug Task Force on some little old drug charges that should have never ever brought me 32 years in prison," she said. Wilson claims no one believes her because she was high at the time of the incident and because she has a history of drug use. Wilson says anything else she knows about the case is hearsay. As for Dan Harmon, he chose not to comment on the murders. He is serving time in an Illinois prison on drug charges...."

James Milam - had information on the Ives and Henry deaths. He was decapitated. The coroner ruled death due to natural causes. I've a feeling this is going to be my favorite entry. Remember that Arkansas medical examiner, the one I said wasn't always the most conscientious investigator on God's green earth? Yep, we're about to see him again. Fahmy Malak listed James Milam's cause of death as a perforated ulcer, adding that Milam's small dog afterwards ate the dead man's head, accounting for Milam's headless condition. Milam's daughter-in-law insists Milam was murdered. She claims Malak showed her photographs of the headless corpse, and the neck was cut clean. The Milam family has not attempted to legally challenge the ruling because of the expense, so we'll never know which way the cat jumps, ulcer or murder. The best for last though. Ives and Henry died three months after the 72-year-old man Milam was called to glory. What are we supposed to believe here, the Clinton conspirators knocked off someone who "had information on the Ives and Henry deaths" three months before they did away with Ives and Henry?

A House Judiciary Committee report released in September said Nichols had frequent contact with Casolaro just before the journalist, who was probing a web of conspiracies ranging from the Iran-Contra affair to alleged Justice Department skulduggery, was found with his wrists slashed in a West Virginia motel room. The report, titled "The INSLAW Affair," said the Justice Department had failed to adequately investigate charges that high-level officials had stolen and misused a private firm's sophisticated computer software designed to help track criminals. The report also called for further investigation into Casolaro's death, which was declared a suicide by West Virginia officials. Nichols acknowledged to committee investigators that he had spoken to Casolaro often and served as a sounding board for him, but would not provide a sworn statement to the House committee. ……"

Victor Raiser and R Montgomery Raiser/C Victor Raiser II

The National Finance Co-Chair for "Clinton for President." He died in a airplane crash on July 30, 1992. (1) R. Montgomery Raiser Also involved in the Clinton presidential campaign. He died in the same plane crash as Victor. (1)

C. Victor Raiser II National Finance Co-Chairman, Clinton for President Campaign
Montgomery Raiser Son of C. Victor Raiser II Died July 30, 1992 Both men died in a private plane crash in Alaska, en route to a fishing expedition. No cause was ever determined. Five others not connected to Clinton died with them. DeeDee Meyers described Raiser as a "major player" in the Clinton organization. Victor raiser was also chairman of Mobile Telecomm Technologies Corp., whose subsidiary, SkyTel Corp. is an international paging company used by federal police agencies such as the FBI. Victor Raiser was a Washington lawyer and he was counsel to the Washington law firm of Jones Day Reavis & Pogue until 1991. At his death, he was the national finance co-chairman of the Clinton for President campaign. He and his wife had been friends of the Clintons for ten years. He was the past national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He served on the boards of the Democratic Business Council and the Center for National Policy and the board of advisers of the Democratic Leadership Council. On May 29, 1993, President Clinton announced that he had selected Raiser's widow, Molly Raiser, 50, former Democratic co-chair of the Women's Campaign Fund, to be his protocol chief and stated that he planned to nominate her for confirmation as an ambassador. (2)



C. Victor Raiser, II - former National Finance Co-Chairman of Clinton for President, and Montgomery Raiser, his son. Both died in a suspicious private plane crash in Alaska. No cause determined. Raiser was considered to be a major player on the Clinton team. By definition, all plane crashes are suspicious. Airplanes are supposed to stay in the air, and when they don't it's because something went terribly wrong. Pilot error and mechanical failure are by far the most common causes underlying any crash. The National Transportation Safety Board investigates every downed plane in the U.S., and though they might not always pin down the exact cause of a crash, they're generally pretty good about ruling out the use of explosives or mechanical tampering. If the NTSB doesn't find evidence of tampering or explosives, that's not what downed the plane, and we're left with pilot error and mechanical failure as our choices. Raiser, his son, and three others died in a plane crash in Alaska on 30 July 1992 during a fishing trip. The pilot and another passenger survived and were hospitalized with severe burns. While the "body count" list claims "no cause determined," the NTSB says otherwise: pilot error in a small plane flying in mountainous terrain during low visibility conditions led to the crash. Now, consider how ridiculous it is to include this accident on a list of allegedly deliberate deaths. The airplane did not crash due to mechanical failure. The airplane did not crash because it was damaged by fire or explosion. The airplane crashed because its pilot made a mistake. So how could C. Victor Raiser's death possibly have been deliberate? Do you know any pilots willing to intentionally crash their planes? Is there a registry of kamikaze flyers one can hire when one needs a few passengers to be "accidentally" bumped off? Isn't it astounding that the pilot managed to crash his plane and kill the targeted victim, yet ensure his own survival? See what the
NTSB had to say about this accident.

Note that the conspiracy buffs can't even come up with a plausible reason for Raiser's killing other than noting that he was "a major player on the Clinton team," as if that were reason enough. (What about all the other "major players" who aren't dead? How does Clinton ever get anything done if he keeps bumping off anybody with any responsibility in his organization? And isn't it a little foolish to kill off one of your chief financial chairmen three months before a major election? "Yup, I've got all the money I'll ever need for this presidential election; guess I can kill off my finance chairman now.") (3)

wordarchive.com 1999 Dan Jacobson "....On August 4, 1992, presidential candidate Bill Clinton and his running mate, Al Gore sat silently near the front of the large National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. They had postponed a bus tour of campaigning in the Midwest, and were attending the funeral services for C. Victor Raiser II, the national co-chairman of finance for Clinton's 1992 campaign. Raiser had taken a brief pause from his grueling schedule to do some fishing for salmon in Alaska with his son Montgomery, and C. Taylor Kew, Raiser's longtime friend from his home town of Buffalo, New York. A deHavilland Beaver floatplane was carrying these three men and three other passengers to a remote fishing lodge. The pilot, seeing the clouds were too low to make it over a pass, tried to turn around in a narrow valley when the engine stalled, and the plane hit the side of a mountain. Only the pilot and Kew survived the crash, both suffering serious burns. Kew made a partial recovery in an Anchorage hospital, but a month after the crash (the day after returning home to Buffalo) he collapsed and died. The report of the crash issued by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) states that the pilot was diagnosed with a diabetic condition upon admission to the hospital after the crash. The pilot had no record of any diabetic condition before the accident. The NTSB ruled the probable cause of the accident as pilot error. Mr. Raiser was an influential man; Clinton and Gore were not the only important dignitaries attending his funeral. He was a prominent fixture in the affairs of the Democratic Party. Among many important positions he held were chairman of the American Mobile Satellite Corporation, the national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and a position on the board of advisers of the Democratic Leadership Council...."

Paul Tully - DNC Political Director, was found dead in a Little Rock hotel room. No cause was ever determined and no autopsy was allowed. Tully was a key member of the damage control squad and came up with some of the Clinton strategies. Paul Tully died on 24 September 1992. Problem is, there wasn't anything the least bit unusual about his death, so whoever cooked up this list had to lie and claim that "no cause was ever determined" and "no autopsy was allowed." Au contraire! An autopsy was performed, and Tully's cause of death was determined: a massive heart attack. (Not a surprising demise, since Tully was extremely overweight, a heavy drinker, and a chain smoker.) According to Steve Nawojczyk, the Pulaski County coroner, "An autopsy by the Arkansas medical examiner's office discovered advanced coronary artery disease." He added that investigators found no evidence of external trauma to the body. Note again that the conspiracy buffs offer no putative reason for Tully's "killing" yet would have us believe that Clinton ordered his chief strategist rubbed out while the most important election of his career was still over a month away.

http://www.ntanet.net/nta/farah.html "…. Rivera also lists some deaths in a military accident on his Clinton Death List. However, a military man in position to know takes sharp issue with Rivera's sinister interpretation as cited below……. . "…. I'm an Army AH-64 instructor pilot and was stationed at Wiesbaden Army Air Base (Crash Site) at the time and arrived on scene just after the crash occured. First, the reason these men were aboard the same helicopter, was because they were the primary staff of the 5th US CORPS. Wiesbaden Army Air Base was where the Blackhawk detachment (the ones who fly VIPs) was based. Now what really happened... The cause of the accident was an imbalance between the two external, wing-mounted fuel tanks. One of them empty, the other full (nearly 230 gallons of fuel). This out-of-balance condition went unnoticed by the pilot (who survived the accident, by the way) because at that time there were no indicators for fuel flow coming out, nor showing the actual fuel level of the external tanks. A large lateral center-of-gravity shift occured at the one tank drained normally and the other did not. This went unnoticed by the crew, because at cruise speed, it was unconsiously compensated for by applying a small ammount of lateral cyclic (joystick) input. Trouble hit when they were slowing down to land, between 100 and 50 feet above the ground. As the pilot decelerated below ETL (effective translational lift--all helicopters experience this) the efficiency of the main rotor system decreased, requiring more power to maintain altitude, and larger inputs of the cyclic to maintain a level attitude. The pilot increased the lateral inputs to maintain level until he reached the limits of cyclic travel (this all happend within a few seconds). At this point, the aircraft became uncontrollable, rolled to the side with the heavier, full fuel tank and crashed. These external fuel cells are constructed from fiberglass and kevlar and are NOT CRASHWORTHY. The eggshell cracked, spilling fuel onto the ground and sending some directly into the turbine engine intake (located directly above the wingtanks). A fireball errupted, consuming the aircraft in seconds. After the preliminary investigation by the US Army Safety Center, FT. Rucker, AL, an immediate moritorium on flying UH-60 Blackhawks with external tanks was issued. This was later ammended to allow MEDIVAC blackhawks to retain the extended range tanks, due to their real-world mission profiles. Aircraft systems as well as crew and pilot procedures have since been modified to preclude this type of accident from happening again. This cautiousness spilled over into the AH-64 Apache community as well, as we fly with a similar system on our wings for deep attack and overwater missions. So... from personal , first-hand knowedge, I know, Jim, that this one needs to be forcefully retracted…."

 

 

Five Navy aviators Clinton bodyguards/escorts (names not determined)


Died March 26, 1993 All died in the crash of an E-2C Hawkeye in Italy. The crash occurred shortly after the plane was "waved off" from a landing attempt on the Carrier Roosevelt, due to a "foul deck." All five men had been Clinton's escorts during Clinton's visit to the Roosevelt two weeks prior. Three other men, who had flown Clinton to the Roosevelt for that visit also died later in a helicopter crash. (2)

wordarchive.com 1999 Dan Jacobson "....On March 12, 1993, President Clinton visited the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, at Norfolk, Virginia.....On March 25, 1993, just thirteen days after Clinton's visit, tragedy struck the Roosevelt when five naval aviators, Lt. Cmdr. Jon A. Rystrom, Lt. William R. Dyer, Lt. Robert A. Forwalder, Lt. Patrick J. Ardaiz, and Lt. John A. Messier, went down in the Ionian Sea in an E-2C Hawkeye radar plane. The plane had been monitoring nightly drops of humanitarian aid to Muslims in eastern Bosnia, and was returning to the Roosevelt. As the plane approached the carrier, it was waved off because of a fouled flight deck; the crew circled into a holding pattern, and the plane disappeared about a mile from the carrier. There was never any distress call, and the cause for the crash was never determined. Bill Clinton expressed his "deep concern over the accident," mentioned his recent trip to the Roosevelt, and complimented in a general way the sailors and marines aboard the ship. He did not mention that the particular naval aviators that had died had been part of a special squadron chosen to personally escort the President when he boarded the ship....."

Former Washington D.C. council member. Had ties to Whitewater. Died of a very suspicious hanging suicide. John Wilson was the chairman of the District of Columbia Council, and his suicide was far from "very suspicious": Wilson had a long history of depression, was wrestling with marital problems, and had tried to kill himself on at least four other occasions. He finally succeeded on 19 May 1993. Upon his death, Wilson's wife said, "[His] depression was an inherited problem; that he was able to contribute so much over the years in the face of his disability was a miracle." Police said that he did not leave a note and that there were no signs of foul play. Wilson had absolutely nothing in common with Clinton other than that they worked in the same city (i.e., Washington, D.C.). The claim that Wilson had anything to do with Whitewater is laughable (and pathetic). (3)

Vincent Foster

A White House deputy counsel and long-time personal friend of Bill and Hillary's. Found on July 20, 1993, dead of a gunshot wound to the mouth -- a death ruled suicide. Many different theories on this case! Readers are encouraged to read our report in Strange Deaths. (1)

White House Counsel Died July 21, 1993 Found dead in Fort Marcy Park in Virginia of a supposed suicide by gunshot. A suicide note was supposedly found a few days later, torn into 28 pieces, in his briefcase, after his office had been entered by White House staff and materials removed. The gun which he supposedly used to kill himself was reported to be still in his hand, but the person who first found the body reports that there was no gun at that time. Many irregularities surround the death and the investigation of it. Like Clinton, Foster was from Hope, Ark. He worked for the Rose Law firm with Hillary Clinton. London Telegraph reporter Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reports a member of the Foster family has confirmed to him that Foster and Mrs. Clinton were lovers. Foster had intimate knowledge of the Clintons' personal finances. Foster was involved in an investigation of their finances, and reportedly made a phone call to Hillary Clinton, in Los Angeles, just hours before his death. Recently, the signed report of medical examiner Dr. Donald Haut was uncovered at the National Archives. It stated that Foster had a previously unreported gunshot wound to his neck. Finally, an FBI memo has surfaced dated the day after the date of the official autopsy, in which the autopsist informs the FBI that there was no exit wound. (2)

Former White House Counsel, found dead of a gunshot wound to the head and ruled a suicide. He had significant knowledge of the Clintons' financial affairs and was a business partner with Hillary. If the Clintons are guilty of the crimes they are accused of by Larry, Vincent Foster would have detailed knowledge of those crimes. This laundry list of deaths always refers to someone taking his life as "ruled a suicide," thus implying another conclusion of equal likelihood was capriciously dismissed by someone who had the power to do so. From here on, read "ruled a suicide" as "an investigation was carried out, arriving at this as the only reasonable conclusion."

White House deputy counsel Vince Foster committed suicide on the night of 20 July 1993 by shooting himself once in the head, a day after he contacted his doctor about his depression. A note in the form of a draft resignation letter was found in the bottom of his briefcase a week after his death. (Note that this letter was not, as is often claimed, a "suicide note." It was Foster's outline for a letter of resignation.) Foster cited negative Wall Street Journal editorials about him. He was also upset about the much-criticized role of the counsel's office in the controversial firing of seven White House travel office workers. On 10 October 1997, special prosecutor Kenneth Starr released his report on the investigation into Foster's death, the third such investigation (after ones conducted by the coroner and Starr's predecessor, Robert B. Fiske) of the matter. The 114-page summary of a three-year investigation concluded that Foster shot himself with the pistol discovered in his right hand. There was no sign of a struggle, nor any evidence he'd been drugged or intoxicated or that his body had been moved. If Foster had been murdered or if unanswered questions about his death remained, Starr would have been the last person to want to conclude the investigation prematurely. Or are we to believe Starr is part of the cover up, too? And if we buy into the conspiracy theory, what are we expected to believe? That a group of professional killers capable of carrying out dozens of murders all over the world shot Vince Foster, then clumsily dumped him in a park (after he had bled out), planted a gun he didn't own in his hand (without bothering to press his fingerprints onto it), amateurishly forged a suicide note (in several different handwritings), and then seriously expected the nation would believe it was suicide? Claims too crazy to believe are never discounted when they're needed to help establish a conspiracy, of course. (3)

The misrepresentations Nussbaum made to senior Justice Department officials about his plans for the official search of Foster's office. Justice Department lawyers and FBI investigators were denied access to evidence despite Nussbaum's assurances to the contrary. The stunt prompted outrage from Deputy Attorney General Phillip Heymann, who later demanded of Nussbaum, "Bernie, are you hiding something?"

Accuracy in Media 9/21/00 Reed Irvine "….Why would a White House official be in fear of his life because he had found a missing computer? Howard Sparks, an employee of the Management and Administration Office of the White House has signed an affidavit saying, "After Vincent Foster died, I received a call from Jim MacDonald (his boss at the time), who wanted me to meet with him outside and go for a ride with him. During that ride, Mr. MacDonald informed me that he was concerned that he would be killed because of what he had found."............ James L. MacDonald, Jr. had found Vincent Foster's computer, something that his bosses at the White House didn't want those who were investigating Foster's death to find. White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum had refused to let the investigators see what was on the computer when they were watching him examine and describe the files in Foster's office………. Hiding the computer was clearly obstruction of justice. His immediate boss was Patsy Thomasson, the top aide of Clinton's friend, Dan Lasater. She ran Lasater's business while he served time for illegal distribution of cocaine. Thomasson was in Foster's office on the night of his death, searching his desk. Earlier in the evening she had a secret meeting in her office with a team of Secret Service experts in alarms and safes. She was experienced in controlling damage from scandals……….. Sheryl Hall, the former White House computer expert who exposed the misplacement of thousands of White House e-mails earlier this year, gave Sperry a significantly different account of what happened to Foster's computer. She said that it remained in Foster's office for about six months. She kept notes on the dates and times it was moved, and she provided copies of those notes to MacDonald. This suggests that it was never really lost………"

7/20/98 Michael Reagan "Around 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, 1993, White House counsel Vincent Foster told Linda Tripp, "There are some M&Ms in the candy tray if you want them. I'll be back." Then he left the office. Five hours later, he was found dead in Fort Marcy Park, a gunshot wound in the back of his mouth. That was five years ago today. Despite a mountain of evidence that shows Foster didn't die in that park, Kenneth Starr closed the books on the case in August 1997. Even though the bullet was never found. Even though no motive was established. Even though the 27-piece "suicide note" that turned up days later was not a suicide note at all. Even though Foster's body was covered with fibers (as if it had been rolled up in a carpet). Even though there was no soil from the dusty footpath on his shoes. Investigators gave conflicting versions of almost every aspect of the evidence, including whether or not the bullet produced an exit wound, whether the wound was located in the head or neck, and even whether Foster was found on the ground or in his car. If Vince Foster pressed a .38 against the back of his mouth and pulled the trigger, there should have been burns and gunpowder deposits around the wound, as well as broken teeth and blood on the gun-barrel -- but there was none. The most intriguing evidence is this: Four different people searched Foster's pockets while the body was in the park, but couldn't find his car keys. There were no keys in Foster's Honda in the parking lot. Did the keys eventually turn up? Yes, they did. Where? At the morgue where Foster's body was taken. There, a check of his pockets -- which had already been found empty at the park -- revealed two sets of keys. Could four investigators have missed two sets of keys in Foster's pockets? ..two White House officials who were alone with Foster's body in the morgue shortly before the keys were found: (1) former Rose Law partner and Travelgate figure William Kennedy III, and (2) Craig Livingstone of Filegate fame..The night Foster died, a man named Jerry Luther Parks was watching TV in his Little Rock home when a news bulletin announced Foster's death. Parks turned pale. "I'm a dead man," he whispered…."

Washington Weekly 11/30/98 Marvin Lee ".The Secret Service says it has no logs or surveillance video showing the arrival or departure of Vince Foster to the White House on his last day of work, July 20, 1993.."

Vincent Foster was found with a .38 revolver made by Colt Arms, built from parts taken from two other guns, and having two serial numbers. There are contradictions between a blue/black gun and a silver colored gun separately identified, absence of Foster's fingerprints and blood, DNA inconclusive results and a lack of matching gunpowder and bullet fragment evidence.

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...A three-judge federal panel yesterday unsealed a 511-page report, submitted by Kenneth Starr grand jury witness Patrick Knowlton in June, which -- in the view of its authors -- presents incontrovertible evidence of conspiracy and cover-up by the Justice Department and the Office of the Independent Counsel in connection with their investigations into Vincent Foster's death and counters the official conclusion that the top White House official "committed suicide by gunshot in Fort Marcy Park on July 20, 1993." At the same time, the panel -- headed by David B. Sentelle, with Richard D. Cudahy and Peter T. Fay -- denied Knowlton's request that this report be attached as an amendment to the Interim Report (the "Starr Report") on the investigation of Foster's death, which was released Oct. 10, 1997. There has been no final report. ...Knowlton's two reports are built on charges developed in a civil suit he filed Oct. 25, 1996, charging FBI agents, U.S. Park Police employees and others with obstruction of justice, witness intimidation, and personal harassment. An amended complaint was filed last October adding defendants and additional information. The civil rights suit was dismissed Sept. 9. Today Knowlton was expected to file a motion to reconsider that ruling while he prepares to appeal the ruling of John Garrett Penn to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia....."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...The White House account from the outset was met with a barrage of criticism from some very vocal, outspoken critics -- among them Western Journalism Center, the parent organization of WorldNetDaily. Another is witness Patrick Knowlton, 44, who had stopped briefly at Fort Marcy an hour and a half before the body was discovered. He insists Foster's silver-gray 1989 Honda was not in the parking lot at 4:30 p.m. when he arrived, though Foster had presumably driven it there, parked, then walked 700 feet to the earthworks of the fort where he took his own life. Knowlton did, however, see a mid-1980s model, rust-brown Honda with Arkansas plates and a blue late-model sedan. Knowlton later reported that no one was in the Honda, but the driver of the sedan stood by that car watching him "menacingly" as he walked into the woods seeking a secluded place where he could relieve himself, and he was still there when Knowlton returned a few minutes later....... Knowlton notified the U.S. Park Service as to what he had seen in the parking lot as soon as word of Foster's death was made public on July 21, but was not contacted for a statement until the following spring. FBI agents interviewed him in April and May 1994 prior to the release of the Fiske Report, but falsified his account of what he saw. Despite Knowlton's insistence that the car he saw was a 1983-84 rust-brown Honda, the agents in their report wrote that he had seen Foster's 1989 Honda. It was clearly important to establish that Foster's car was in the parking lot at 4:30 p.m. since the medical examiner and others later set the approximate time of death between 2:00 and 4:20 p.m. ...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "..."In its footnotes the Starr Report refers readers to documents that purport to prove the conclusions it makes," Knowlton's Report declares. "Of these 353 footnotes, 265, or 75 percent of them, refer the reader to documents that are unavailable." In their evaluation of the Starr Report, the three researchers focused on its inconsistencies and contradictions...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "..."Over 20 people (Park Police and paramedics) saw the body at the park and nobody reported a large exit wound at the back of the head," Clarke said emphatically. "Plus, the bullet was never found." Continuing on this theme, Clarke observed there is some testimony indicating the bullet may have exited the back of Foster's neck and did not remain in the skull, even though it was not found at the park. ...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...Asked what he considered the most significant findings in the report, Clarke drew attention to the section about the gunshot residue on Foster's hands, which the OIC maintains is proof that he fired the gun. The Knowlton Report offers an interpretation its authors believe is more in keeping with the facts. "Foster couldn't have fired the weapon with the gunshot residue the way it was left on his hands," Clarke said. "The residue was caused by Foster holding his hands consistent with a defensive posture." That is, "His hands were spread open; he wasn't touching the gun, though he seems to have been pushing the barrel away when the gunman pulled the trigger." From page 225 of the Nolton Report: "Mr. Foster held his hands with the palms facing the revolver's cylinder -- consistent with his hands being in a definsive posture." To clarify this interpretation, the Report includes an showing the likely position of Foster's hands. ...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...Clarke also characterized as "significant" the fact that the manufacturer (Remington) of the bullets that were found in the official death weapon has never used what is called ball smokeless powder. "Ball smokeless powder is what was found on Vince Foster's body and clothing,' said Clarke. "We think that's significant because it's used for reloads. But professional hit men also use it to get particular firing characteristics out of a gun. That would be consistent with there being no exit wound. They'd put a light powder charge in the gun so that it wouldn't blow the back of his head off as it would, had it been stock ammunition. That's why I think it was a professional hit." ...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...A third major finding, in Clarke's opinion, was the role played at the Fort Marcy Park crime scene by Sgt. Robert Edwards -- a role the FBI and later the OIC tried to conceal. By carefully going over the statements of the "firefighters" (emergency medical technicians), paramedics and Park Police officers, the Knowlton team was able to compile a minute-by-minute timetable of who arrived when, where they went, what they did, who and what they saw, and so on. Comparing the timetable with the witness accounts of the state of the body, "We found out that the body had been tampered with at Fort Marcy Park and by whom," said Clarke. "It was Sgt. Edwards. We have flat-out proved that." ..."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...Edwards has long been recognized by Foster-death skeptics as a mystery man. He was with the Glen Echo Station of the U.S. Park Police, but was not the shift commander that evening nor was he one of the detectives on the case. "I still don't know who he is," said Clarke. "(Investigator John) Rolla testified he had never seen him before and nobody knew who he was -- but I don't know if he (Rolla) was right on this because there was never any follow-up on the depositions. "But he (Edwards) was definitely assigned to the Glen Echo station, because I called there and learned he had been transferred to Georgia." Specifically, Edwards was transferred to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center at Glynco, Ga., to serve as an instructor, according to a statement obtained by WorldNetDaily though a Freedom of Information Act request in 1997.....Despite his somewhat ambiguous position at the Glen Echo station, at 6:28 p.m. Edwards arrived and took charge of the investigation -- only to disappear 20 minutes later as quietly as he had arrived. For over 15 minutes he was alone with Foster's body..... At 6:26 Edwards arrived at the site while Ferstl was taking pictures. He asked Ferstl to hand over the seven Polaroids and ordered him to return to the parking lot. The photos were not inventoried and Edwards never turned them in as evidence. ....."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...From 6:27 until 6:43, Edwards was alone with the body. How did he spend that time? According to the Report, "Sometime during the over 15 minutes Sergeant Edwards was alone with the body, an untraceable .38 caliber black revolver replaced the automatic pistol in Mr. Foster's hand. Edwards also moved Mr. Foster's head to the right side, causing blood to flow out of the mouth onto his right side (and leaving a stain on the right cheek from its contact with the bloody right shoulder). This made it appear that the blood already on the right side, which had in fact drained from the right side neck wound, had come from the mouth. He thus concealed the existence of the neck wound (inconsistent with suicide), and made it appear as if Mr. Foster may have been shot in the mouth (consistent with suicide). The official explanation for the contact blood stain on the right cheek is that it had appeared when an unknown fire-and-rescue worker checked the pulse." Sgt. Edwards disappeared as mysteriously as he arrived. He was observed taking Polaroids -- which he later reportedly denied. No one knows when he left, but it was some time around 6:50. For all his involvement at the scene, there is no public record of his being interviewed by the FBI or Fiske investigators...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "....Foster's missing keys: Investigator John Rolla checked Foster's pockets at the site and found no car keys, though Foster carried two rings of keys. Later that evening -- following a visit to the morgue by William Kennedy and Craig Livingstone -- Rolla checked Foster's pockets again and discovered both key rings....... "

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...The guns at the park: Only two of the witnesses who saw the gun before Edwards was there remembered what type of gun it was. Said Clarke, "One of them, (paramedic George) Gonzalez called it a revolver, and (paramedic Richard) Arthur is 100 percent sure it was a semi-automatic and even drew a picture of it while under oath. He was adamant about it...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...Lack of fingerprints: Foster's fingerprints were on neither the official gun nor its ammunition. The FBI lab explained that problem away, saying latent prints could be "destroyed" by the summer heat; however, one print was found on the pistol grip. Tests showed it did not match Foster's or the prints of any of the investigators handling the gun. "To this day, that print still has not been compared to those on file in the FBI database," the Report charges....."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...The Autopsy: "The Starr Report hides the fact that the autopsy began before the police arrived, in violation of the requirements of the Medical Examiner's Office," observes the Knowlton Report; moreover, the autopsy was begun a day ahead of schedule and without the two investigating officers being in attendance. Originally scheduled for Thursday, July 22, Fairfax County Medical Examiner Dr. James Beyer, with only an assistant whose name he refused to divulge, began the autopsy some time before 10 a.m., Wednesday. By the time investigators did arrive, Beyer had destroyed considerable evidence about the alleged gunshot in the mouth. "Prior to our arrival the victim's tongue had been removed as well as parts of the soft tissue from the pallet," Officer James Morrissette reported. The OIC carefully omitted Morrisette's sentence from its report, saying six people attended the autopsy, but neglecting to mention they weren't all present when Beyer began his work...."

WorldNetDaily.com 9/15/99 Sarah Foster "...Missing X-rays: There are "conflicting reports" explaining the lack of x-ray evidence: x-rays were taken and readable (but lost); x-rays were taken but unreadable; the x-ray machine was broken; and that it worked "sometimes, but not for Mr. Foster's autopsy." Testifying before a Senate committee in 1994, Dr. Beyer said, "the machine wasn't working -- and I saw no need to take an x-ray." ..."

NewsMax 9/23/99 ".....Patterson's suspicions about the murder of Vincent Foster are further buttressed by his knowledge of a cover-up relating to the circumstances of the death. On the day of Foster's death, Patterson said he received a phone call from fellow Arkansas state trooper Roger Perry who was working at the governor's mansion. Perry told Patterson "he had received a call from Helen Dickey, who had been working at the White Hous" According to Perry, Dickey, a social aide, had called to notify Arkansas Governor Jim Guy Tucker that "Vince Foster had been found in the parking lot of the White House and had shot himself." While Dickey's account to Perry, which Perry has corroborated in a sworn affidavit, contradicts official claims Foster killed himself at Fort Marcy Park, Dickey's call raised a more significant discrepancy. Patterson said he is certain he had just arrived home from work, no later than 5:30 PM Central time, but most likely at about 5:00 PM, when he received Perry's call about the death. Dickey's call would have been placed to Perry between 6 to 6:30 PM Eastern Time. Based on the Trooper's account, Dickey would have known about Foster's death a full two-and-half hours before Park Police claim they identified the body in Fort Marcy Park as Foster's, and a full three hours before the White House claimed they were notified of Foster's death - about 9PM that night. The fact that people knew of Foster's death, earlier, perhaps even before Foster's body was found in Fort Marcy, again raises a suspicion of murder, Patterson suggests. Patterson has been questioned about this by investigators for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. Patterson was shocked that Starr's agents, rather than seek the truth of the matter, attempted to get him to change or alter his account to fit with official claims. Patterson said the FBI agents "tried for an hour and 15 minutes to get me to change my story."..... Patterson didn't budge. And phone records that would support his claims, investigators told him, have disappeared or don't exist. Patterson and Perry's claims about the Dickey call did raise questions of Senate investigators. In 1995 the Senate Whitewater committee called Helen Dickey to testify. Dickey denied she called Perry early that evening or said that Foster died in the parking lot. During the Senate Hearing, the Democratic counsel claimed both Patterson and Perry were "former troopers" who had refused to testify. Patterson calls this a lie and said he was never told about the hearing, asked to testify, or subpoenaed to testify. Patterson said Vince Foster's death frightens him. "I'm very, very concerned," he said......."

Freeper logos 9/23/99 memo to FBI "....Memo: To honest FBI agents with integrity and courage

Subject: False Official Reports in connection with the investigation of an Unattended Death

One: The official autopsy protocol concerning the post-mortem examination of one Vincent Foster contains no reference to post-mortem lividity.

Two: As post-mortem lividity is a response of a no-longer-living body to the forces of gravity, it cannot be stopped; neither can it be faked. Nor will it be dissipated until the onset of advanced decomposition.

Three: Based on personal attendance at autopsies over the years and careful perusal of autopsy protocols from autopsies not attended, I can attest that this is the first one I have ever noted where post-mortem lividity was omitted as a finding of the subject autopsy.

Four: As post-mortem lividity is vividly obvious to the naked and untrained eye, it is impossible to accept the premise that it was "overlooked" in the case of Vincent Foster. Untrained police and ambulance attendants, for example, might have mistaken it for massive bruising rather than for what it actually was, but they would not have "missed" it. No certified pathologist, forensic or otherwise, could possibly overlook it.

Five: When are you honest FBI agents, those of you with integrity and courage, going to do your jobs, identify and interview all those who would have seen the unclothed body of Vincent Foster, asking them about any "large bruises" on the body?

Six: When are you honest FBI agents, those of you with integrity and courage, going to do your jobs, and hold to the fire the feet of the pathologist who performed the autopsy of Vincent Foster, and demand to know what he knows about post-mortem lividity in this specific case? He could not have missed it; therefore, he must have omitted any reference to it for a reason.

Purpose: If this story of the trooper is true, the presence and location of post-mortem lividity on the body of Vincent Foster would be far different than if he died where his body was found. For starters, if he died where he was found all signs of post-mortemn lividity would be found on the posterior, or down side of his body (lower back, buttocks, backs of thighs, lower backs of ankles and heels). If he died sitting up in an automobile, post-mortem lividity might also be found in those areas of the body, but they would also be found on some anterior portions of the body (lower abdomen, fronts of ankles, and tops of feet). Since post-mortem lividity "sets" fairly quickly in warm to hot weather, if any post-mortem lividity was present on any anterior location of Vincent Foster's body, that is prima facia evidence that his body was moved after death. ...."

But with a wrongful death civil suit brought by Davidian relatives, the ongoing investigation of a Waco special prosecutor and renewed interest in the massacre in several Congressional offices, Waco's Foster-Hubbell-Hillary axis could prove to be the most problematic for the White House. It's long been known that Hubbell was the Justice Department's point man on Waco. But the roles played by Foster and Mrs. Clinton have been overlooked until now.

Three months after Waco, Foster was found shot to death in a Virginia park. Investigators have ruled his death a suicide. In a note officials say Foster wrote ten days earlier, the fomer Rose lawyer complained, "the FBI lied to the AG (attorney general)."

Sculimbrene's comments are followed by an excerpt from the November 19, 1998 Congressional testimony of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr: ".....The extensive use of governmental privileges against grand jury and criminal investigations has, of course, been a pattern through this administration. Most notably, the White House cited privilege in 1993 to prevent Justice Department and Park Police officials from reviewing documents in Vincent Foster's office in the days after his tragic death." …...Sculimbrene: "The day after Vince Foster died, I got a phone call from a fella working on the case who told me that they, not explaining who they were; that they had agreed that the FBI was going to come over and do a regular crime scene search of Vince Foster's office."

Neither was ever recovered during or after the crime scene search and their whereabouts are still unknown."

Whitehurst notes that uniformed Secret Service officer Henry O' Neill testified that he saw the first lady's chief of staff Maggie Williams removing documents from Foster's office the night he died.

McNulty concludes this line of inquiry with the account of T. March Bell, who was a member of the 1995 House Waco investigation staff: "One of the interesting things that happens in an investigation is that you get anonymous phone calls.

A close friend of the Clintons who goes back with the President to their boyhood days together in Hope, Arkansas, Watkins told The American Spectator in 1996: "Ileene (Watkins' wife) was told soon after we arrived in Washington that Vince and Hillary were involved in a love affair. She was told by someone who was very close to Vince. And they said it was not idle speculation -- everyone in Vince's family knew about it." Watkins is corroborated by at least two of the Clintons' state trooper bodyguards, each of whom has spoken publicly about catching Hillary and Foster in physically compromising situations….."

Washington Weekly 1/31/2000 Marvin Lee "…..On January 19, U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton was asked by Buffalo, NY radio host Tom Bauerle whether there was any truth to the stories that she had had an affair with White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster who was found dead in Fort Marcy Park in 1993: …. Former Arkansas State Trooper L.D. Brown, who was assigned to the security detail of then-Governor Bill Clinton, disagrees. "As to the Vince Foster affair, it was real and torrid at that. I know, I saw it and Hillary and I talked about it," he tells the Washington Weekly. "I think she showed her true colors by taking up the interviewer on his offer to hate him." L.D. Brown describes the love affair between Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster, as he witnessed it, in his book Crossfire: Witness in the Clinton Investigation, where he points out that: It has amazed me that the subject has been taboo in the 'mainstream media.' Especially after he committed suicide, a serious discussion of motive could not be undertaken until that variable had been included in any hypothesis. Chapter Five, "The True Loves of Their Lives," from Crossfire is reprinted with permission in its entirety in this issue of the Washington Weekly….."

NewsMax.com 2/20/00 Carl Limbacher "….. For those familiar with the Ruddy-Scaife history there's little doubt about what most irks the First Lady. Just peruse a copy of the White House's Hillary inspired "Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce" and you'll see that Ruddy's writings questioning the so-called suicide of Vince Foster -- and Scaife's courageous support of Ruddy's investigation -- have driven the White House positively bonkers. So it's doubly odd that Hubbell should be the chosen vehicle for Clintonian vengeance. Recall, on the night of Foster's death Hubbell himself told longtime Rose Law colleague Phillip Carroll, "Don't believe a word you hear. It wasn't a suicide. It couldn't have been." ("The Death of Hope," Esquire Magazine -- Nov. 1993) While touting his 1997 book Friends in High Places on Bob Grant's nationally syndicated talk radio show, NewsMax.com caught up with Hillary's former Rose Law partner. What about his "Don't believe it's a suicide..." quote, we wanted to know? "The night that Vince died was one of the most terrible nights of my life," Hubbell told NewsMax.com. "Phil Carroll was (Vince's) closest partner back in Little Rock. He was his mentor. But he was also Catholic. And I know how strongly Phil felt about suicide and couldn't believe it." ……..Back when Hubbell was still the number three man at Justice, the First Lady actually asked him to investigate rumors that a Navy "hit team" had taken Foster out. If Hubbell's Vast Right Wing Conspiracy lawsuit against Ruddy and Scaife ever actually materializes, perhaps we'll see a courtroom examination of his and Hillary's own Foster suicide doubts......."

Newsmax.com 3/4/00 "…..The discovery of the White House's long-lost e-mails was first reported by Insight Magazine in December 1998. But along with this cache of evidence, Insight also revealed that "thousands of pages of White House telephone records," covering the period of January 1992 through December 1998, had been found. Although Insight didn't say so, this meant that evidence may exist to prove the claims of two Arkansas state troopers, who say they were told about Foster's death before police had informed even the White House -- perhaps even before his body was discovered. Troopers Roger Perry and Larry Patterson, who were assigned to the Arkansas governor's mansion the day Foster died, told investigators in 1995 that White House aide Helen Dickey called to report that Foster had shot himself in the parking lot. Dickey's call, insist the lawmen, came at least an hour before police notified the White House. Both Perry and Patterson filed sworn affidavits to back their accounts. But Ms. Dickey told Foster case probers she didn't make that call till at least 10:30pm, more than four hours after the White House lawyer's body had been found. Independent Counsel Ken Starr sided with Dickey, mainly because he was unable to find proof of the troopers' account. His report on Foster's death states simply: "Complete records for such calls are not available." …..When troopers Perry and Patterson were invited to testify before the Senate Whitewater Committee in February 1996, they urged investigators to press the White House on telephone records for July 20, 1993; records that would prove whether it was they -- or Helen Dickey -- who told the truth about the timing of her Foster phone call. When senate investigators failed to do so the troopers declined to testify, fearing that in the absence of proof they would be smeared as disgruntled Clinton-haters. ….."

World Net Daily 3/24/00 Charles Smith "……. The ghost of Vincent Foster still haunts President Clinton. Documented contradictions in a newly released medical report -- which does not match a previous, publicly available copy -- are raising renewed questions about Foster's death. Los Angeles attorney Allan Favish obtained the report from the Office of Independent Counsel through the Freedom of Information Act. Favish has additional information about the Foster death at his website. ……… Favish's interest, and the purpose of his FOIA request, was to inspect the original version of the report for alterations, to see if it had been improperly changed to conceal evidence of a neck wound, the existence of which the government denies. ……… His interest was piqued by the fact that the official record of the Foster death investigation contains unresolved contradictory information about the nature of a reported exit wound. Dr. Donald Haut, the only medical doctor to examine Foster's body where it was found, wrote a two-page "Report of Investigation by Medical Examiner," apparently signed on the day of death. Page one of Haut's report states the death shot was "mouth-head," but page two of the report states that the death shot was "mouth to neck." ……… Although Haut's report is not reproduced in any publicly available government publication, it is available from the National Archives, and it is quoted in the Senate Banking Committee's January 1995 report on the Foster death. The Senate Committee's report quotes from both pages of Haut's report and fails to note that the quoted language is contradictory, i.e., "mouth-head" and "mouth to neck." ……"

World Net Daily 3/24/00 Charles Smith "……. A "mouth to neck" description is significant because it contradicts the official autopsy conclusion of "mouth to head" and the conclusions of Independent Counsels Robert Fiske and Kenneth Starr. Starr's report on the Foster death says the autopsy report "indicates 'backward' and 'upward' as the direction of the bullet through the head". The doctor who performed the autopsy said the exit wound was "three inches from the top of the head." …….. Haut's report of a neck wound takes on even more significance in light of additional evidence: One such wound was reported to be an entrance wound on the side of the neck. Starr said that paramedic Richard Arthur, "initially said he saw what 'appeared to be a bullet wound, an entrance wound' on the neck." Not mentioned by Starr is that Arthur testified he was only two to three feet away from Foster when he observed the apparent bullet wound on the right side of Foster's neck, around the jaw line and underneath the right ear. But even Starr's expert, Dr. Brian Blackbourne, said an autopsy photo showed there was "dried blood" at the neck location, although he said the photo did not show any injury to the neck. ……….. The issue of possible alteration raises serious questions, because it is improper to alter a medical record that completely obscures words. According to a leading textbook on medical record-keeping, "Mastering Documentation," proper alteration of a medical record is done by lining out any words that need to be corrected so that all the original words can be recognized, and then initialing and dating the change. ………. In a declaration submitted in response to the Haut report FOIA lawsuit, Associate Independent Counsel Julie A. Corcoran states that the office of the independent counsel does not have the original version of the Haut report. She states, "at the time of the FOIA request" the independent counsel had "a certified copy of the report sought, not the original report." ......"

World Net Daily 3/24/00 Charles Smith "……. The copy in the National Archives and the copy from the independent counsel were both certified by the autopsy doctor, James Beyer, who was assistant chief medical examiner at the time. Beyer's certification on the National Archives copy is dated November 2, 1994. However, his certification on the independent counsel copy is dated January 30, 1995. In addition, Beyer certified both pages of the National Archives copy, but only the first page of the Independent counsel copy. Neither Fiske nor Starr addressed the inconsistency with Haut's report, except by hiding them from the public. Fiske's report failed to mention Haut's medical report. And Starr's report, released publicly in October 1997, quotes from the possibly altered language on page one of Haut's report that states "mouth-head," but does not quote the "mouth to neck" language on page two. According to Favish, the independent counsel was made aware in February 1998 that the copy of the Haut report found at the National Archives might have been improperly altered. ……."

 

Committee On Government Reform and Oversight 9/24/96 Deposition of Craig Livingstone "...

Mr. Burton. On the evening of July 20th, when you were at Vince Foster's home, did anyone speak to you about removing any documents or any other items from Vince Foster's office? The Witness. Absolutely not.
Mr. Burton. The White House Counsel's Office?
The Witness. Absolutely not.
Mr. Burton. Or anyplace else in the White House?
The Witness. Absolutely not.
Mr. Burton. Were you at the White House the morning of July 21st, 1993, the morning after the death of Vince Foster?
The Witness. I believe that I was.
Mr. Burton. At what time did you arrive at the White House that morning? And I will follow up by saying in your July 10th, 1995 deposition, with the Senate Whitewater Committee, you stated that you arrived at the White House at roughly 8:14 a.m. However, a chronology prepared by Jane Sherburne states that you arrived at the White House around 7:15 a.m.
……

Mr. Burton. You stand by that statement that you are sure you did not go into his office?
The Witness. It doesn't refresh my memory today, sir, but I think that is basically what I just told you, I did not believe that I went in the office.
Mr. Burton. Secret Service Agent Bruce Abbott has stated under oath that he observed you and another man carrying a briefcase and a box of papers out of the elevator that goes to the second floor of the White House in the vicinity of Vince Foster's office on the morning of July 21st. He reported that you both left the building through the West Executive Avenue exit. You were carrying the briefcase. The young man was carrying the box. He was very explicit about this in his description of both the box and the briefcase, quote: "I would describe it as a leather or vinyl briefcase opening from the top, much in the fashion of a litigator's bag or a lawyer's briefcase with a strap over the top. I would describe it as opening in a clam shell fashion on the top. I observed that individual carrying one or perhaps two boxes with what appeared to be loose-leaf binders stacked vertically. That is what they appeared to be."
Did you remove a box, a briefcase or any documents from the White House Counsel's Office that morning?
Mr. Turk. Congressman, what you just read was a quotation from Agent Abbott?
Mr. Burton. Yes.
Mr. Turk. And did he make that statement to this committee, or -- I am not sure what you are reading from. I see that it's a prepared document for the examination.
Mr. Burton. Yes. He was under oath, and here is his testimony right here.
Mr. Turk. This is testimony -- is this in the House? This is the Senate Banking Committee.
Mr. Burton. Right.
Mr. Turk. And the question is?
Mr. Burton. The question is: Did you remove a box, a briefcase or any documents from the White House Counsel's Office that morning?
The Witness. I don't have any recollection of doing so. I don't believe that I did so. Anything other than pursuant to my normal duties.
Mr. Burton. But you can't categorically say that you did not remove any documents, any briefcase or any box from the Counsel's Office?
The Witness. I can categorically say that I did not remove anything from Vince Foster's office. I can categorically say that --
Mr. Turk. Can you categorically say whether or not you understood that anything that you may have been carrying out of the White House at any time that day, categorically understood, you did not -- you did not understand that anything you carried out of the White House that day was containing anything from Vince Foster's office?
The Witness. I can absolutely categorically state that.
Mr. Burton. That nothing that you took out of the White House or from the second floor that day was out --
Mr. Turk. If he took something.
The Witness. If at all; and I don't believe that's the case.
Mr. Burton. Okay. Did you remove a box, a briefcase or any documents from anywhere else on the second floor of the White House that morning?
The Witness. I have no knowledge of this alleged incident. I can't account for what the officer says he saw, sir.
Mr. Burton. Okay. We will pursue that.
Mr. Turk. Part of the problem is, you may recall, Congressman, is that this allegation surfaces long after the events, and Mr. Abbott made no -- you know, didn't ever report this.
Mr. Burton. There's more than just one or two people that substantiate the statements that he made.
Mr. Turk. Who else?
Mr. Burton. I am going to go into that.
Mr. Turk. Okay.
Mr. Burton. Bruce Abbott's supervisor Secret Service Officer Dennis Martin has stated under oath that Officer Abbott told him that same morning that he witnessed you and the other man carrying this box and briefcase down from the second floor. He did not just make this up later on. These two Secret Service guys have 30 years' combined service. I am giving this for background information.
Park Police Detective Peter Markland has stated under oath that he stopped you in the White House later that morning and asked you if you had taken a box of papers out of Vince Foster's office. He stated again, under oath, that you did not deny bringing a box of papers from the second floor, but you said they came from somewhere other than Vince Foster's office. Is that true?
The Witness. I don't recall the instance.
Mr. Burton. You don't remember this instance?
The Witness. No.
Mr. Burton. Do you know Peter Markland?
The Witness. I don't know Peter Markland.
Mr. Turk. Do you know who he is?
The Witness. I know who he is.

Charles Smith WorldNetDaily.com 4/00 "……. A newly released certified copy of a Virginia medical report on Vincent Foster, whose controversial death was officially ruled a suicide, suggests that officials may have altered a copy of the report the Virginia Medical Examiner gave to Ken Starr and the Office of Independent Counsel of 1995. The most recent copy of the certified report, obtained by WorldNetDaily, is clearly different from Starr's copy. ………… According to an exclusive WorldNetDaily interview with attorney Allan Favish, there are now three known, publicly available certified copies of the original version of the report. "The first and third of the certified copies show what appears to have been a sloppy attempt to obliterate a word on the original version using correction fluid or tape," stated Favish during an interview near his Los Angeles home. "The second certified copy, obtained from the Office of the Independent Counsel, does not show any evidence of this possible alteration," said Favish. "This raises the question of whether the Virginia medical examiner gave the independent counsel altered evidence," noted Favish.........., "[As to] the cause of death -- the 'mouth-head' language on page one appears to have been altered on the original with correction fluid or tape, almost completely concealing what appears to be a four-letter word, and leaving small black marks that appear to be the remnants of four letters. That would be improper." ......"

Senate Whitewater Hearings Volume 12/13/95 Testimony of William Burton "…… Sworn Testimony of C. William Burton, Former Policy and Staff Director for The Chief of Staff to the President.
Mr. Chertoff: Mr. Burton, do you recognize the number 202-628-7087?
Mr. Burton: Yes sir.
Mr. Chertoff: How do you recognize the number?
Mr. Burton: Shortly before the hearing started, I was given some papers by one of the Committee staff members and the number is that so-called mystery number that has been in question in front of this panel, and that's where I saw the number for the first time.......
Mr. Chertoff: This is really a simply point. You don't need to struggle with it. It's just common sense. There are apparently numbers at the White House that allow people to bypass the switchboard, right?
Mr. Burton: Yes sir.
Mr. Chertoff: You know from your own experience because you knew you had one number?
Mr. Burton: Yes sir.
Mr. Chertoff: Now, somewhere in the White House someone has those numbers?
Mr. Burton: I assume that is the case, yes, sir……
Mr. Chertoff: Now, let me ask you about the night of the [July, 1993] 20th. You were in Mr. McLarty's office?
Mr. Burton: I was there most of the day. I was there shortly before the Larry King show started that the President was appearing live on that night.........................
Mr. Chertoff: You were up there when Mr. McLarty spoke to the President after the show?
Mr. Burton: Yes, sir.
Mr. Chertoff: Did you know that the President called the First Lady?
Mr. burton: I found out later that he had called the First Lady.
Mr. Chertoff: Then, at some time after 10 p.m you returned to the Chief of Staff's office?
Mr. Burton: Yes, sir. ……..
Mr. Chertoff: Now, we have received a letter from the White House indicating that you recall that at what would have been 11:41 Eastern time and what was 10:41 Little Rock time you had a conversation with the First Lady.
Mr. Burton: I recall having a conversation with the First Lady that night. I did not remember the time. The time you just described is not inconsistent with what I remember.
Mr. Chertoff: How did you come to have that conversation?
Mr. Burton: I was in Mr. McLarty's private office most of the evening, and at some point that night I received a call from the First Lady. I don't remember if I answered the phone or if Ms. Mathews answered the phone and transferred the call in to me. I don't remember who answered the phone. It was the First Lady, and we had a personal conversation about Mr. Foster's death. It lasted about 10 or 15 minutes to the best of my recollection.
Mr. Chertoff: Now, was the First Lady looking for you?
Mr. Burton: That's my recollection.
Mr. Chertoff: So you pick up the phone and the First Lady says what?
Mr. Burton: I do not remember the precise words used during the conversation. I do remember the call quite well and remember the general areas we discussed……
Mr. Chertoff: Did she say why -- and I will put this in context for you, because she made very few calls that evening, and as she described it in her affidavit, she called some of her closest friends and colleagues. She called Maggie Williams and Harry Thomasson, she spent 20 minutes on the phone with Susan Thomases and then immediately hung up and within a moment called the mystery number, had a 10 minute conversation, then called Carolyn Huber, a very old friend from Arkansas, and then called her brother. Now, in the midst of these calls to these very, very close people, there's a call to what you have now told us is to you for 10 minutes. Are you a very close friend of the First Lady?
Mr. Burton: I consider myself a friend of the First Lady. I don't know that you would go so far as to say a close personal friend. I used to work with the First Lady. I knew Governor Clinton in the mid-1970s……
Mr. Burton: That's right. This may help to put it in context. Mr. McLarty had taken me up to the residence when he was going to notify the President about the death of Mr. Foster, the suicide of Mr. Foster because I had talked to the Park Police and was the point person in the White House at that time who knew about that and who knew the details in the event the President wanted more details about the suicide.
Mr. McLarty later advised me that he had notified the First Lady. He said I told her you had talked to the Park Police. If my recollection serves me right, he may have mentioned she may call you to talk about that…..
Mr. Chertoff: Now, as of the time the First Lady called you, had you, in fact, been notified of that notification?
Mr. Burton: Yes, sir. I think I testified previously that I remember that notification because it was, I think, a particularly tender one, a particularly dear one we had to be concerned about.
Mrs. Foster had lost her husband maybe the year prior to her son's suicide and was an elderly woman living in Hope alone in the Foster home. I wanted to absolutely sure she didn't find out by radio or by television, and even -- I didn't even want her to find out by telephone.
So I called George Frazier, who is an older man, a town father figure living in Hope, who had Mrs. Foster earlier in the evening and he and his wife had gone to get the preacher, Reverend Roark in Hope and went to the Foster farm to notify her, I think, at approximately 11:30 or 11:40. I know by that point I had ascertained that Mr. Frazier and his wife had contacted the preacher and were going out there..........
Mr. Chertoff: I want to focus on this conversation. What did you tell her?
Mr. Burton: There's one thing I specifically remember about that, and I told her whatever it was I knew at the time. I happened to remember specifically talking to her about the placement of the gun in Mr. Foster's mouth. The reason I remember that is because it made me a little bit uncomfortable telling someone who was a close friend of Mr. Foster about that particular gruesome detail.
The reason I decided to tell her that was it was that fact that the Park Policeman, the major lieutenant, whichever one I had talked to had used to tell me, convince me it had in fact been a suicide, it was the fact he used to explain -- let me tell you how I know it was a suicide.......
Mr. Burton: I think what she was saying was that in a suicide, often, where you have somebody like Mr. Foster who doesn't, in his day-to-day life, appear to be somebody despondent, appear to be somebody who is distraught enough to kill himself, how, in fact, they can be depressed.
It was just more an explanation to me about it.
Mr. Chertoff: What I am having trouble with here, Mr. Burton, is you begin with her asking you or your volunteering the gruesome detail about the gun being placed in the mouth in order to make Mrs. Clinton aware of your conclusion that it is a suicide rather than a death by another cause; right? Then, immediately, she tells you that she has concluded, based upon her thinking about this, that this was caused by depression. Is this the way the conversation was?
Mr. Burton: A couple of corrections there. One was I was repeating to her the Park Police's conclusion that it had been a suicide.
Mr. Chertoff: You did this because-----
Mr. Burton: Which I accepted after hearing the details of the scene, I did accept that conclusion.
Mr. Chertoff: From there, she had concluded, based on her experiences talking to Mrs. Gore, that depression often causes suicide and he might have been depressed. I am trying to figure out how you move from telling her it is a suicide to her, as you've testified a moment ago, telling you how these things are caused by depression. It seems to me you just told her it is a suicide and now you are telling me she's come back to you and said she has been reflecting on this and has come up with a cause….."

WorldNetDaily 5/16/00 Julie Foster "…..Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from a group seeking photographs of White House lawyer Vince Foster taken at the scene of his death in 1993. Accuracy in Media, a media watchdog group, argues the public has a "substantial interest" in the photos because they might show whether the government properly investigated Foster's death. ...... A large number of inconsistencies, contradictions and even instances of apparent evidence tampering following the mysterious death have never been explained. ……. Through a federal Freedom of Information Act request, Accuracy in Media asked the National Park Service to release photos taken of Foster's body at the scene of his death and during his autopsy. But the Park Service refused, citing an exemption for cases in which releasing information would create an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. …….. AIM appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing the public has a compelling interest to learn the nature of the White House attorney's death. But the court, without comment, declined to hear the case. "It seems all government institutions are afraid of this issue," said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which represents AIM. "We will pursue this through other legal means." ………"

WorldNetDaily 6/10/00 "….. A key witness in the death of White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster charges that so-called "independent" investigations led by Robert Fiske and Kenneth Starr actually relied on FBI agents who had a vested interest in verifying the findings of their agency which, along with the U.S. Park Police, was deeply involved in the probe from the day Foster's lifeless body was discovered in Fort Marcy Park. Patrick Knowlton, who happened by the crime scene hours before Foster's body was found in the park on July 20, 1993, points out the FBI played a large role in the initial investigation, according to key depositions in the case. ………. The role of the FBI in the initial investigation has been, heretofore, little known. Press reports downplayed the extent of FBI involvement -- characterizing it as simply "monitoring" the work of the park police. Days after Foster's death, Justice Department spokesmen specifically stated that there was no investigation by the FBI. ……."

WorldNetDaily 6/10/00 "….. The breadth of the FBI's role in the initial 17-day death investigation was documented in a 20-page attachment http://fbicover-up.com/starr/addendum.htm added to Starr's Report by the three-judge panel on the Special Division of the United States Court of Appeals and released to the public Oct. 10, 1997. Knowlton submitted these 20 pages of official evidence to the court. ……… The evidence in the attachment showed that on the evening of the discovery of Foster's body, the FBI arranged to send FBI agents Scott Salter and Dennis Condon to the White House to investigate the death. They were dispatched to the White House the following morning, as agent Salter testified June 30, 1995. "(FBI Agent) John Danna called us in my car (on July 21) and told us to go to the southwest gate of the White House and meet him there and that we were ... going to be working on a death investigation involving Mr. Foster's death," Salter said in his deposition. When handed a memorandum and asked to identify it, agent Salter said: "[I]t's basically a summary of events from the 21st through the conclusion of, through August 4th or 6th or whatever it was, through the conclusion of the investigation that we did." Salter explained that the FBI's function was to interview witnesses along with the U.S. Park Police. …….. "

WorldNetDaily 6/10/00 "….. U.S. Secret Service Agent Paul Imbordino, in response to the question at his June 22, 1995, deposition, "Who conducted the interviews?" answered, "Park Police and FBI." Other FBI agents who conducted interviews during the initial investigation into Foster's death included Charles K. Dorsey and Bradley J. Garrett. …….During his July 30, 1994, deposition, U.S. Park Police Maj. Robert Hines testified that the FBI dominated much of the investigation. When asked, "Did there come a time when you determined that [the] Department of Justice was really in charge of this investigation?", Hines answered, "There came a time when I determined that they were calling a lot of shots, setting-up a lot of protocols ..." ……… The day after the death, July 21, FBI agents met with White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum, Assistant White House Counsel Steven Neuwirth and Assistant White House Counsel Clifford Sloan to discuss the search of Foster's office. In 1995, the Senate held well-publicized hearings concerning Nussbaum's refusal to let authorities see all the documents he reviewed during the office search on July 22 in the presence of the FBI and the Park Police. There were allegations that White House personnel searched the office before Nussbaum's official search. Yet, the FBI had already searched the office and removed evidence, according to a U.S. Secret Service report, written by a technical security division officer. On Aug. 3, 1993, that officer wrote that on July 31, 1993, 11 days after the death, an FBI agent told him of the FBI's involvement in the case. ......"

Just a few added notes: John Whitehead (no picture provided) is a former vice-chairman of Goldman Sachs and has also been a director fo BSI (Banca della Svitzera Italiano), at which Vince Foster was maintaining at least one "numbered" account. Foster, as I have reported, was under counter-intelligence surveillance at the time of his death……..Also, Ranger Oil today announced it will "go public" by merging with Calgary-based Renaissance Energy. Ranger is a sizeable Canadian integrated oil company controled 95% by Li Ka Shing or his Hutchison Whampoa, with the other 5% by CIBC. It is my experience that when companies seek a public listing by merging with another public company, it is a sleezy way to dodge full disclosure to securities regulators. This seems especially true in Ranger's case, since a stated goal of the merger and public listing is to raise new funds to finance Ranger's large oil and gas finds off Canada's east coast. 6/20/00 Freeper Tenega

Knowlton's account, documented in the appendix to Starr's Foster report, clearly shows that Foster could not have taken his life in the Virginia Park. ......,Skeptical at first, Ruddy took a walk with Knowlton after the witness reported the harassment. Just as Knowlton claimed, a series of individuals followed and glared at the pair in what Ruddy later reported for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review was a very unnerving attempt to send Knowlton the clear message: Truthful testimony about Vince Foster could be hazardous to one's health. .........Though Starr and the media ignored Knowlton's harassment, prosecutor Schippers told NewsMax.com that he took the account of another Starr witness extremely seriously: "I wanted to put Kathleen Willey on. Because, you talk about intimidation -- they did everything but threaten to kill her. And in fact, they did give her a threat to kill, in a veiled fashion, two days before her deposition." Schippers recounted Willey's story about the jogger who approached her, asked about her missing cat, the recent vandalism of her car and then mentioned her children by name. "Don't you get the message?" the total stranger told the frightened witness. ……."

Newsmax.com 8/7/00 Carl Limbacher "…..But the ex-Chicago prosecutor shared a chilling new aspect of Willey's ordeal -- an account that could have been lifted right from the script of an Alfred Hitchcock film: "The woman was absolutely scared to death. She got a call from the electric company. And they told her they were going to shut off her power and she'd be in total darkness for about 15 minutes. At first she thought nothing of this. But when it didn't happen she called them back to ask when they were going to do this. And they said, 'What are you talking about?' So that's the kind of thing that happened to some of these witnesses. That's how they operate." ……....."

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "…..But the one book that is unequivocal and unapologetic in its belief that Foster's death was engineered by the White House is Michael Kellett's The Murder of Vince Foster, which is dedicated to Foster. It was published in 1995. Kellett writes: This book is about more than murder. It is about arrogance and the abuse of power. It is about government officials caring more about their careers, money, and their political philosophies than for truth. …… "

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "…..To understand what happened to Vince Foster, one must understand the context in which these events took place. It seems that in July 1993, federal investigators were about to go through Foster's files and the files at the Rose Law Firm to find evidence of wrongdoing in the Whitewater affair. In fact, on the very day of Foster's death, the F.B.I. issued a subpoena and took records out of the office of Little Rock municipal judge David L. Hale, who later pleaded guilty to defrauding the government and became a key witness in the Whitewater investigation by independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr. And so, in July 1993, Vince Foster was faced with a dilemma: open his files to the federal investigators or destroy them. Kellett writes: Clinton and Foster were on the phone the evening of July 19 discussing the impending federal investigation. It was no friendly chat. Foster told Clinton in no uncertain terms that he would not destroy evidence; that he was not going to jail to protect the Bill 'n' Hill gang. ...,:

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "….. Kellett quotes Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard defense lawyer, who said: In my 30 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I have noticed one general distinction between the actions of innocent and guilty clients: The innocent save every scrap of paper in the hope and expectation that somewhere in the boxes of files, bills, phone logs, and diaries they will find some proof of their innocence; the guilty, on the other hand, destroy as much as they can, in the fear that somewhere the prosecutor will find something incriminating. …….. And that's what the Clintons have been doing all these years, destroying the evidence that would put them behind bars. And so, a showdown evidently took place between Foster and his Arkansas colleagues over what to do to thwart the federal investigators. Foster would not do what they wanted. His conscience gave him no choice. ….."

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "…..Since Foster could not be persuaded by Clinton and his gang to do what they knew had to be done to save their skins, the decision was made to get rid of him. How was it to be done? Foster's murder was to be made to look like a suicide. But his body had to be found quickly, so that they could get into his office as soon as possible. But where was he to be done in? The night before his death, Foster was visited at his home by Bruce Lindsey and another unidentified Washington lawyer. Kellett writes: Lindsey was a stock broker in Arkansas, whose firm received big contracts to sell state bonds when Clinton was governor and also contributed heavily to Clinton's campaigns. He is now Clinton's personal attorney and it was in his office that numerous Whitewater related files eventually showed up. Lindsey said the two invited Foster to see a movie, but he declined. ... Surprisingly, one would think Lindsey, who knew Foster, would have known that Foster was definitely not the type to want to go to a movie with two other middle-aged men on a Monday night. ... Reader, when was the last time you saw three middle-aged men go to a movie? Incidentally, Clinton, as part of his 20-minute chat, also invited Foster to come over and see a movie at the White House. And who was with Clinton at the time? None other than Webb Hubbell, the former number two man in the Justice Department who quit when his activities as president of Hillary's Rose Law Firm started being scrutinized. …."

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "…..Where did Foster go? His appointment book has never been found. All we know is that at about 5:30 p.m. Foster's body was discovered at Fort Marcy Park by a witness whose identity was not made public. The Park Police got there at about 6:10 p.m.. ……"

EtherZone 8/8/00 Samuel Blumenthal "…..Normally, the F.B.I. investigates murders and suicides involving government officials. But Clinton had fired F.B.I. chief William Sessions the day before Foster's death and placed the investigation in the hands of the Park Police whose main functions are chasing litterbugs and issuing parking tickets! The Clintonistas knew that the Park Police could be intimidated by the power of the White House to hand over Foster's wallet and pager and not question the ransacking of Foster's office. Someone had already stolen Foster's briefcase from his car in the park which, six days later, wound up in the White House with a forged "suicide note" torn into 27 pieces. How did the briefcase get there? Who stole it out of the car? Who forged the note and why weren't Foster's fingerprints on it? The Fiske commission never bothered to find out. ……."

9/7/00 Freeper Rayelan "……. This article appeared in the August issue of The Media Bypass magazine and is reposted here with the permission of James R. Norman. Subscriptions of Media Bypass can be obtained by calling 1-800-4-BYPASS …….. Two weeks before his death on July 20, 1993, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster went into a deep funk. The official cause of death, given by former Independent Counsel Robert Fiske Jr., was suicide drivenby depression over, among other things, several newspaper editorials. But Vince Foster had a much bigger and darker reason to be seriously burned out. He had just learned he was under investigation for espionage. ......... Outrageous? To say the least. But a lengthy investigation has located over a dozen sources with connections to the intelligence community who confirm a shocking story of money laundering and espionage connected to the highest levels of the White House. Without grants of immunity, the sources risk going to prison for violation of the National Security Act. Virtually all have demanded anonymity. ........., According to a veteran Central Intelligence Agency operative close to the Foster investigation, Foster's first indication of trouble came when he inquired about his coded bank account at Banca Della Svizzera Italiana in Chiasso, Switzerland and found the account empty. Foster was shocked to learn from the bank that someone using his secret authorization code had withdrawn all $2.73 million he had stashed there and had moved it to, of all places, the U.S. Treasury. ……. Then, according to credit card records reviewed by a private investigator who has revealed them, Foster canceled the two-day round-trip TWA and Swiss Air plane tickets to Geneva he had purchased on his American Express card through the White House travel office on July 1. ……..Discretely he began asking what was afoot, says the CIA source, confirming that someone in the White House tipped him off. It was bad news. The CIA had Foster under serious investigation for leaking high-security secrets to the State of Israel. ......"

Response from Michael Rivero "…… This story was floated back in 1993 when the suicide cover story began to collapse. The implication was that if Foster was murdered, he deserved it, and everyone should just (nudge nudge wink wink) accept the suicide lie because it was "National Security". ….. But there are several problems with the story. …… First and foremost is that Vince Foster did not commit suicide. He was murdered and the phony suicide staged to conceal the murder. The forensics on the gun alone prove that it was not the gun that was used to fire a shot into Foster's mouth, but simply planted as a prop. ......, Yet another problem is that the real Israeli spy in the White House, code named "Mega", was still being sought by the FBI long after Foster was dead and buried. The hunt for Mega was called off by Bill Clinton, supposedly because the Mossad had tapped Monica Lewinsky's phone at the Watergate and recorded some phone sex sessions. ……… Thirdly, there has never been any documentation that this mythical bank account ever existed, let alone was cleaned out without Foster's knowledge. To take another example, nobody has emptied Wen Ho Lee's bank account yet, nor were the bank accounts of the Walkers or Aldrich Ames tampered with. ……… Which brings us to the next point. Ames and the Walkers were a tremendous embarassment to the US Government. But they were not killed and dumped in a suburban park. They were sent to trial and an example made of them. ……. Fonally, this mythical fifth column never existed. That was a cover story placed on the very obvious and sudden resignation of career politicians, in one case with re-election posters already printed and on the alls, supposedly in response to blackmail information (FBI files data) delivered by an "angel of death". The online shills tried to sell the idea that this mythical "5th column" was taking it upon themselves to root out and destroy corrupt politicians, except that nobody in the Clinton White House, arguably the greatest collection of corruption to ever inhabit the place, ever received a visit from the angel. …….."

WorldNetDaily 9/13/00 Paul Sperry "…… Lending credence to complaints of a botched investigation, Former Special Counsel Robert Fiske never seized nor even tried to seize Vincent Foster's computer as evidence after the deputy White House counsel died unexpectedly in 1993, WorldNetDaily has learned. …… …… Only now are agents for the latest independent counsel, Robert Ray, trying to look at all the files, deleted and undeleted, on what appears to be Foster's hard drive. They're also trying to interview former White House officials who handled the drive, including Jim "Mack" MacDonald, the computer division chief whose story has gone untold -- until now. …… …. Not until Fiske's successor, Kenneth Starr, took over the investigation in August 1994 -- a year after Foster's death -- did authorities become interested in seizing Foster's computer, MacDonald says.. ….MacDonald, former director of the White House's Information Systems and Technology division, says FBI agents paid him a visit at his New Executive Office Building office in the summer of 1994. "It was embarrassing for them to ask (for Foster's computer)," he recalled. "I mean, they had no idea where this thing was." ……. An inventory check by MacDonald showed Foster's computer missing at the time. It was supposed to be in his old West Wing office. So agents went away empty-handed. ……. Several months later, MacDonald says he stumbled on the central-processing unit, or CPU, of Foster's computer while in a meeting in an office on the 2nd Floor of the Old Executive Office Building. He says he spotted it on the floor and asked, "Whose PC is that?" No one knew, he says, so he checked it out. "When I picked it up and looked at the serial number, I about fell over, because it was the Foster serial number we'd been looking for," MacDonald said. "I crossed Pennsylvania Avenue and carried it over to the Data Center on the 4th Floor in the NEOB." …… He says he wrapped it in plastic, affixed a label to it -- "FOSTER PC" -- and placed it in a tall, wheeled cabinet on the north wall near the VAX mainframes. He says he then locked the cabinet doors. ...... …….. A White House employee, however, has sworn that MacDonald was more than just nervous. ……. "After Vincent Foster died, I received a call from Jim MacDonald, who wanted me to meet him outside to go for a ride with him. During that ride, Mr. MacDonald informed me that he had found Vincent Foster's computer," said Howard "Chip" Sparks in a June 19 federal court affidavit. Sparks, a White House computer network specialist, worked for MacDonald. "In the wake of the mysterious circumstances surrounding Mr. Foster's death, Mr. MacDonald was extremely upset by his discovery," Sparks added. "And he told me that he was concerned that he would be killed because of what he had found." Asked about it, MacDonald downplayed Sparks' account, insisting: "I didn't think someone would shoot me." .........……. "

WorldNetDaily 9/13/00 Paul Sperry "…… Here is Hall's version of what happened. …….. Shortly after finding Foster's CPU, Hall says MacDonald asked her to tap one of her technicians, Dorothy "Dottie" Crumling, to run a software program to break into some of Foster's password-protected files. The exercise worked. She says they were able to read one file that revealed Foster and his wife had plans for the night of July 20, 1993 -- the day he was found dead. ….. Later in 1994, Hall says MacDonald had a former White House computer contractor, Mike Saunders, remove the hard drive from Foster's CPU. MacDonald kept it in his office, she says. ……."It was on Mack's desk," she said. …… When MacDonald left the White House the next year, he gave the hard drive to Jurg Hochuli, who was the Office of Administration finance director, Hall says. "Jurg had it on a bookshelf behind his desk," she said. ...... Hall came into possession of the hard drive after she says MacDonald, who hired her, called her and asked her to pick it up from Hochuli, who transferred to the State Department. He now works there under former top Clinton aide Patsy Thomasson. ……. "Mack called me from California and told me to get it," Hall said. "I've often wondered why he did it." ……. Hall took the hard drive home. A few years ago, she says, Starr's investigators interviewed her about the White House phone records. Hall at one time was in charge of the PBX system there, too. And Foster's computer got brought up. Hall says she later agreed to give senior counsel Jay Apperson half of the hard drive (her husband split up the disks). She held back half of it for "insurance," saying she didn't trust Starr. Now Ray's office has the whole drive. And Hall has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury. ......She says she was granted immunity from prosecution for taking possession of the Foster hard drive in exchange for the evidence and her testimony. She demanded her husband also be granted immunity before she'd cooperate. Don Hall, a computer contractor, took the hard drive apart. ……. "

Stanley Heard was a chiropractor from Hot Springs, Arkansas, and friend of Clinton since 1978. Clinton had sought Heard's help in running for attorney general of Arkansas, and had shared with him his dream of becoming governor of Arkansas and, eventually, President of the United States.

Heard and Steven Dickson, a legal counsel for the Kansas Chiropractic Association, were taking off from Dulles International Airport in Washington after attending a briefing on Clinton's health care plan, when a fire broke out in the engine compartment of the six-seat Piper Cherokee they were flying. They tried to make an emergency landing on a private airstrip in Virginia, but their plane clipped a tree, hit the ground and exploded into flames. The NTSB reported the cause of the crash to be problems with the exhaust system, and therefore "an inadequate annual inspection," which had been performed some three flight-hours before the fateful flight. According to the NTSB, the left intermediate and left cross-over exhaust pipes had separated, allowing hot gases to flow into the engine compartment. A clamp securing the exhaust pipes to the accessory case was missing.

Parks was the Chief of Security for Clinton's national campaign headquarters in Little Rock. Gunned down in his car on September 26, 1993 at the intersection of Chanaul Parkway and Cantrell Road, near Jacksonville, Arkansas (near Little Rock). Parks was shot through the rear window of his car. The assailant then pulled around to the driver's side of Park's car and shot him three more times with a 9mm pistol. His family reported that shortly before his death, they were being followed by unknown persons, and their home had been broken into (despite a top quality alarm system). Parks had been compiling a dossier on Clinton's illicit activities. The dossier was stolen. (1)

Jerry Parks - former security team member for Governor Clinton. Prior to his death he had compiled an extensive file on Clinton's activities. His family had reported being followed and his home broken into just before being gunned down at a deserted intersection. On 26 September 1993, Luther (Jerry) Parks was hit with ten bullets from a 9-mm semiautomatic handgun as he left a Mexican restaurant at the edge of Little Rock. His murder remains unsolved. Parks' security company guarded Clinton's campaign headquarters in 1992. Parks' son, Gary, asserts in Circle of Power and The Clinton Chronicles (both video products of Linda Thompson's American Justice Federation) that his father collected a secret file of Clinton's indiscretions, and that his father was using the file to try to blackmail the Clinton campaign. (He also claims that Vince Foster knew of the file's existence as well.) Despite these allegations, the younger Parks has failed to produce the mysterious file, and Clyde Steelman, the homicide sergeant with the Little Rock police force, dismissed Gary Parks' theories of his father's death as "unsubstantiated, nothing to grasp." A far more likely suspect in the murder is Jerry Parks' former partner, with whom Parks had quarreled bitterly. (3)

Both Foster and Parks are now dead, and we have no idea how much cash was brought in through this route, though we suspect it surpassed the amount of money that was laundered into legitimate political spending. Of all the bag men discovered so far, six are now dead, 36 have pleaded the Fifth Amendment, eleven have fled the country, and eleven are living in foreign countries and refuse to cooperate...."

Newsmax.com 11/23/98 Carl Limbacher ".Could the work of murdered Little Rock security agent Jerry "Luther" Parks have played a role in Vince Foster's death? Last week, Insight magazine recounted the claim of Parks' wife Jane, who says that just days before the deputy White House counsel turned up dead in Fort Marcy Park, he called her husband and told him that he was going to turn a dossier prepared by Parks over to Hillary Clinton. Jane and her son Gary have told reporters that Jerry Parks had been hired by Foster at the direction of Mrs. Clinton to probe the extent of then-Gov. Clinton's womanizing -- with an eye toward damage control when Clinton ran for president. When Parks learned of Foster's death he exclaimed, "I'm a dead man," according to Mrs. Parks. The same Insight report covered Linda Tripp's recent testimony before Ken Starr's Monicagate grand jury, where she compared the reactions of top White House aides when they first learned of Foster's July '93 death and then of Parks' murder just two months later.."

7/20/98 Michael Reagan "...The night Foster died, a man named Jerry Luther Parks was watching TV in his Little Rock home when a news bulletin announced Foster's death. Parks turned pale. "I'm a dead man," he whispered. For weeks after Foster's death, he lived in fear, constantly watching his back, and even taking a gun with him when he went to the mailbox. On Sunday, September 25, 1993 -- two months after the Foster death -- Jerry Luther Parks was returning home from a restaurant when a white Chevy Caprice with two men pulled up alongside his car. The passenger sprayed Parks' car with semiautomatic gunfire, then jumped out and finished Parks off with a 9 mm handgun. The killers were never apprehended. Parks had been a player in Bill Clinton's Arkansas political machine for years, and first became acquainted with Foster by doing investigative work for the Rose Law Firm in the 1980s. The London Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reports that in the late '80s, Foster -- apparently on behalf of Hillary Clinton -- hired Parks to do surveillance on Bill Clinton "to gauge exactly how vulnerable her husband would be to charges of philandering" if he ran for president. Parks accumulated thick files (with photographs) detailing the future president's pattern of womanizing. According to Parks' widow, Foster called Parks from Washington about a week before his death, saying Hillary was frantic about those files and the potential damage they could cause both Bill and Hillary. Just a day or two before his death, Foster called Parks again, heatedly demanding the files. Parks refused. A week or so after Foster's death, the Parks home was broken into -- a sophisticated burglary in which phone lines and the alarm system were disabled. The files were stolen. Two months later, Parks was murdered…."

The Secret Life of Bill Clinton 1997 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard "……..It was another three months before news of the murder of Jerry Luther Parks reached me in Washington. The U.S. national media were largely unaware of the story, which surprised me because Parks had been in charge of security at the 1992 Clinton-Gore campaign headquarters in Little Rock. (4) …….. On my next trip to the state I decided to drop by at the archives of The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette to see if they had covered the death. There were two routine homicide stories by reporter Ward Pincus, mostly focusing on disputes that Parks had had with a former partner. ……… I contacted the writer..............son of Walter Pincus, the intelligence correspondent for the Washington Post and a friend of Vincent Foster. …….. What his son told me was astounding. When he spoke to Jane Parks the day after the death, she said that her husband had been involved with Vince Foster and she seemed to think there was a political dimension to the murder. She was distraught, almost hysterical. Ward Pincus did not know what to make of it, so he consulted his editors at The Democrat-Gazette. Should he go out to visit the widow and try to find out what on earth she was talking about? No, they said, don't' bother. Soon afterward, Jane Parks withdrew into her shell and refused to give any interviews to the press. ……."

The Secret Life of Bill Clinton 1997 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard "……..Contact with Foster was rare after he moved to the White House. But he telephoned in mid-July 1993, about a week before his death. He explained that Hillary had worked herself into a state about "the files," worried that there might be something in them that could cause real damage to Bill or herself. The conversation was brief and inconclusive. Jerry told Vince Foster that there was indeed "plenty to hurt both of them. But you can't give her those files, that was the agreement." Jerry did not seem perturbed at the time. A few days later Foster called again. Jane is sure that it was either Sunday, July 18, or Monday, July 19, the night before Foster's death. Jerry was in the living room with his feet up, watching the History Channel on TV. Jane was puttering in and out of the kitchen. It was around 8:30 PM central time. "Vince was calling from a pay phone," said Jane, who overheard one side of the conversation and then learned the rest from Jerry afterward. "He kept feeding coins into the box, and then he told Jerry to hold on. He must have been near a mini-mart or something because he said he had to get more coins. (19) Then he called a second time, and they spoke for 30 minutes or more." This time it was a heated exchange. Vince said that he had made up his mind. He was going to hand over the files and wanted to be sure that he had the complete set. "You're not going to use those files!" said Jerry, angrily. Foster tried to soothe him. He said he was going to meet Hillary at "the flat" and he was going to give her the files. You can't do that," said Parks. "My name's all over this stuff. You can't give Hillary those files. You can't! Remember what she did, what you told me she did. She's capable of doing anything.!" "We can trust Hil. Don't worry," Said Foster. ……."

The Secret Life of Bill Clinton 1997 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard "…….........Whatever Foster said to Jerry Parks, he cannot possibly have met with Hillary Clinton at "the flat" or anywhere else. She was on the West Coast during the days preceding his death. On the afternoon of July 20, she was on an aircraft flying from Los Angeles to Little Rock. But that does not preclude the grim possibility that Foster thought he was going to a rendezvous with the First Lady on July 20, and met his death instead. The rambler style home of the Parks family was swarming with federal agents on the day after Jerry's assassination. Jane remembers men flashing credentials from the FBI, The Secret Service, the IRS, and she thought, the CIA. Although the CIA made no sense. Nothing made any sense. The federal government had no jurisdiction over a homicide case, and t this day the FBI denies that it ever set foot in her house. But the FBI was there, she insisted, with portable x-ray machines and other fancy devices. An IRS computer expert was flow in from Miami to go through Jerry's computers. Some of them stayed until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning..............The FBI agent in charge was a tall man of about fifth, with blue eyes. tom somebody, she thought. He never left a card. Jane was under the impression that he was from the Hot Springs office, which didn't make any sense either. When she told him that the murder might have a political dimension because of Jerry's dealings with Vince Foster and Bill Clinton, the man cut her short. "He threw up his hands and said, 'I don't want to hear anything about that.'" …… With the help of the Little Rock Police Department the FBI ransacked the place, confiscating files, records, and 130 tapes of telephone conversations-- without giving a receipt. "I've asked them to give it all back, but the police refuse to relinquish anything. They told me there's nothing they can do about the case as long as Bill Clinton is in office." ……............I do not pretend to understand why Jerry Parks was murdered. But the indictions that the Parks case is somehow intertwined with the death of Vincent Foster is surely compelling enough to warrant a proper investigation. Instead, nobody cares to learn what Mrs. Parks has to say. …….."

 

 

 

 

Ed Willey

A Clinton fundraiser. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on November 30, 1993. His death came the same day his wife, Kathleen, was sexually assaulted in the White House by Bill Clinton. (1)

Ed Willey Real Estate Attorney, Clinton Fund Raiser Died Nov. 30, 1993 Died of a shotgun blast to the head. Body found in deep woods in Virginia. Ruled a suicide, no note was found. Died on the same day his wife was allegedly sexually accosted in the White House by Bill Clinton. Intimately involved in several Clinton fund raising events. (2)

Ed Willey - Clinton fund raiser. Found in the woods in Virginia with a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide. Ed Willey was a former Virginia state senator and a lawyer; his wife Kathleen was active in Democratic state politics, worked as a volunteer (including some fund-raising efforts) on behalf of the Clinton campaign in Virginia in 1992, and later worked as a volunteer in the White House Social Office. Ed Willey's death was as clear cut a case of suicide as one is likely to find. Willey was a desperate, unstable man who (along with his wife) spent money lavishly, stole $275,000 of a client's money, and was about half a million dollars in debt to the IRS. He took his own life on 29 November 1993, leaving behind a suicide note found by his wife: "Saying I'm sorry doesn't begin to explain. I hope one day you will forgive me." At the same time as Willey was killing himself, his wife was allegedly being groped by Clinton. She'd gone to the Chief Executive looking for a job to help her family out of its financial crisis and found herself fending off Clinton's advances. Clinton admits to the meeting but denies her version of what went on during it. Kathleen Willey testified in Paula Jones' harrassment suit against Clinton, but she's never claimed that Clinton had her husband killed. Yet again, no reason is offered as to why Clinton would want to see Willey dead. (3)

Times Dispatch Mark Johnson Wednesday, December 1, 1993 "Edward E. Willey Jr., an influential real estate lawyer who moved in political circles by virtue of birth and style, was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound yesterday..King and Queen County sheriff's deputies discovered Willey's body late yesterday morning. They were called to a wooded area along state Route 14, about seven miles east of U.S. 360, after hunters noticed Willey's car parked off the road, Burchett said. The body was found several hundred feet into the woods. Jimmy E.

Herschell Friday/Hershell Friday

A member of the presidential campaign finance committee. He died in an airplane explosion on March 1, 1994. (1)

Hershell Friday Attorney and Clinton fund raiser. Died March 1, 1994 Killed when his plane exploded. Cause unknown. (2)

Hershell Friday - Clinton fund-raiser. His plane exploded. Herschel Friday, an Arkansas lawyer who had been on the Clinton campaign finance committee, died in a airplane accident on 1 March 1994. His plane did not "explode"; the elderly (73-year-old) Friday, at the controls, crashed it during an attempted landing on a poorly-lighted private airfield at dusk on a dark and drizzly day. Nothing suspicious about this one, hence the need to claim that the plane "exploded." That always sounds suspicious. See what the NTSB had to say about this accident. Again, no reason is offered why Clinton would have wanted to dispose of Friday. (3)

WorldNetDaily 9/24/98 "…. Hershell Friday Attorney and Clinton fund raiser. Died March 1, 1994 Killed when his plane exploded. Cause unknown.."

 

wordarchive.com Dan Jacobson 1/1/99 "…… Seventy-two year old Herschel Friday was a partner in the largest law firm in Arkansas. He was a much-loved man with friends in high places in both political parties, including former President Bush and President Clinton. In 1971, sources in the Nixon Administration stated that President Nixon planned to name Friday, a Democrat, to the Supreme Court, but that he decided that Senate confirmation would be unlikely, and searched for other names. Friday, like Victor Raiser, was a prominent figure in Clinton's 1992 presidential Campaign Finance Committee. On March 1, 1994, Friday was approaching his private air strip in the country near North Little Rock, Arkansas, when he temporarily lost his instrument lights. When he regained the lights, according to his son, who was waiting for him at the strip to monitor his landing, Friday began his base turn to land, when the plane nose-dived into the ground, exploding on impact. The NTSB report simply cited "pilot error" as the cause of the accident. No serious problems with the airplane were found in the investigation of the crash. President Clinton called Friday a "good man and a great citizen," and stated that he had been a friend of his for 30 years. At the end of a relatively coherent and lively press conference in which the President addressed a number of other matters, a reporter asked him whether he was going to go to Arkansas to attend his funeral. Clinton gave this odd response: "I don't know. I don't know what the facts are yet. I just heard about it this morning. I actually - right before I went to work early this morning I heard about it." He did not attend the funeral….."

Dr. Donald Rogers - dentist. Killed in a suspicious plane crash on his way to an interview with reporter Ambrose Evans-Pritchard to reveal information about Clinton. On 3 March 1994 the Cessna carrying a pilot, Donald Rogers and two other passengers crashed. The pilot had earlier radioed in that he was experiencing electrical trouble and then lost radio contact. The NTSB investigation after the crash revealed that the plane's left generator severely overheated and shut down, leaving the plane without electrical systems. The plane went down far off its planned route and the pilot was good and lost at the time of the crash. See what the
NTSB had to say about this accident. (3)

The pilot and three passengers of the Cessna 310K were all killed when the plane impacted the ground in an inverted position. The cause of this accident was apparently a complete failure (from undetermined causes) of the plane's electrical system, and subsequent disorientation of the pilot. One of the passengers aboard this plane is only possibly tied to Clinton. The then Washington bureau chief for London's Sunday Telegraph was reporting on Clinton's background, and one of his contacts had set up a meeting between him and a dentist from Arkansas. The informant was going to share with the reporter something he claimed to know about Clinton's days in his home state. But the meeting never materialized. The contact called the reporter and told him that his informant had died in a plane crash. Someone else later told the reporter that this informant was Dr. Ronald Rogers, a dentist from Hot Springs, Arkansas who was a passenger on the ill-fated plane. …."

 

 

Kathy Ferguson and Bill Shelton

Kathy Furguson A 38 year old hospital worker whose ex-husband is a co- defendant in the Paula Jones sexual harassment law suit. She had information supporting Paula Jone's allegations. She died of an apparent suicide on May 11, 1994 from a gunshot wound to the head. (1)

Bill Shelton Shelton was an Arkansas police officer and was found dead as an apparent suicide on kathy Ferguson's grave (Kathy was his girl friend), on June 12, 1994. This "suicide" was the result of a gunshot wound to the back of the head. (1)

Kathy Ferguson Ex-wife of Trooper Danny Ferguson Died May 1994 Died of a supposed gunshot suicide in her living room. There was a suicide note found by the body. However, friends were surprised at having noticed nothing wrong previously. And even more curious, found nearby were several packed suitcases, as if she expected she was going somewhere. She was the former wife of Trooper Danny Ferguson, who is the Arkansas state trooper alleged to have escorted Paula Corbin Jones to the hotel room for her alleged episode of sexual harassment by then-Governor Clinton. Ferguson's wife was reported as a possible corroborating witness for Jones. (2)






Bill Shelton Arkansas state trooper and fiancee of Kathy Ferguson Died June 1994 He allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself in the back of the head at the grave site of his fiancee. Officer Shelton was the fiancee of Kathy Ferguson, who was the ex-wife of Trooper Danny Ferguson. Kathy Ferguson also committed "suicide" a month earlier by allegedly shooting herself in the back of the head. Oddly, next to the body were her packed bags, as if she was expecting to be going somewhere. Danny Ferguson is a co-defendant along with Bill Clinton in Paula Corbin Jones' sexual harassment suit. His ex-wife was reported as a corroborating witness for Ms. Jones. (2)

Kathy Ferguson - former wife of Arkansas State Trooper Danny Ferguson, the co-defendant with Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones lawsuit. Found dead in her living room of a gunshot wound to the head. Ruled a suicide. Interestingly, her packed suitcases seemed to indicate she was about to go somewhere. Kathy Ferguson killed herself with a gunshot to the right temple on 11 May 1993 at the home of her boyfriend, Bill Shelton. Their relationship had fallen on hard times, with each accusing the other of having been unfaithful. Ferguson left behind a suicide note that read: "I can't stay here any longer. Things will never be the same for us. I can't take that." Close by was another note from Shelton questioning her relationship with another man, which Ferguson's daughter said her mother had been upset over. There was no mention of packed suitcases in any of the reports about Ferguson's death examined so far, but even if there were, it wouldn't be the least bit surprising -- is it so unusual that a woman might be thinking of moving out of the house of a boyfriend who quarreled with her and challenged her fidelity? Note how tenuous the imagined connections between Clinton and the "victims" are becoming at this point in the list. The ex-wife of an Arkansas state trooper? That's quite a stretch. Moreover, why would anyone kill Kathy Ferguson but not Danny Ferguson? (3)

Bill Shelton - Arkansas state trooper and fiance of Kathy Ferguson. Allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself at her grave. Shelton killed himself over Kathy Ferguson's grave on 12 June 1993. A suicide note was found beside his body. Just a month earlier he had quarreled with his girlfriend, accused her of cheating on him, and driven her to suicide. There's nothing mysterious about his death or his reasons for taking his life. And if the idea that the ex-wife of an Arkansas state trooper was a Clinton "connection" weren't absurd enough, we're now offered the boyfriend of an ex-wife of an Arkansas state trooper. (3)

Pittsburg Tribune Review (See Newsmax.com) 11/4/94 Christopher Ruddy "…Several co-workers of a deceased woman with apparent links to the Paula Jones case have serious doubts as to the accuracy of an official coroner's report concluding that she committed suicide…. The deceased woman, Kathy Ferguson, 38, was the ex-wife of an Arkansas state trooper, Danny Ferguson, who is a co-defendant in Jones' suit…. Last May in Sherwood, Ark., Kathy Ferguson was found dead of a gunshot wound in the apartment of her boyfriend - who himself, in a bizarre twist of an already strange case, was to die shortly thereafter. Police ruled Ferguson's death a "suicide.'' But interviews with six hospital colleagues indicate that Arkansas officials seem to have overlooked critical information relating to her wounds. … "

"…Just over a month after her death, Shelton, 31, a Sherwood police officer, was found dead of a gunshot wound behind the right ear, with his body sprawled across Ferguson's grave. The police say that he, too, committed suicide….. Three Baptist Memorial nurses and a nurse's aide who worked with Ferguson viewed her body at Huson's Funeral Home in Sherwood and their observations are in decided conflict with the official ruling: that Ferguson fired a .380 semiautomatic pistol into her right temple, with the bullet exiting her left temple….One nurse, an RN whose almost 15 years' experience includes emergency room duty, noted that, curiously, the woman's right temple "was pretty much blown away.'' "Usually exit wounds blow out and entry wounds are clean,'' she explained. The three nurses were puzzled by what looked to them to be an exit wound in the right temple, since they knew Ferguson to be right-handed. …"

"…Eventually, one of the nurses located the apparent entrance wound. Contrary to the subsequently released official report, it was directly behind her left ear about midway between the top and bottom of the ear, and was the size of a "quarter and stuffed with cotton.'' All three nurses - one the RN, the other two LPNs - also clearly saw this cotton-stuffed wound behind Ferguson's left ear. At least two other hospital colleagues subsequently visited the funeral home and made the same observation…. Still, there are five other hospital employees - three of whom are trained nurses with many years of combined experience - who examined Ferguson's wounds. All of them were interviewed on tape for this report (and all have requested anonymity, citing concerns for their safety). They agree there was a small circular wound typical of an entrance wound behind the left ear, and no exit wound in the left temple area, where the autopsy report had it…."

"…Vernon Geberth, author of an authoritative police text titled, Practical Homicide Investigations, held a similar opinion to that of Houston's. "If I have a woman with a gunshot wound to the head, that raises the hair on the back of my neck. Women will usually not blow their heads up.'' Geberth is a retired New York City Police lieutenant commander who headed up the Bronx homicide task force and has been involved in some 5,000 death investigations…."People don't commit suicide by putting a gun behind their head. People who are shot behind the ear are usually executed.''…Houston agreed. "The post-op nurses are well-trained in multiple areas: surgical, medical, trauma,'' he said, emphasizing their expertise in treating wounds of all kinds…"

"….She responded with an account - which is consistent with what other personnel at the hospital say Ferguson told them on separate occasions - of having been "blocked in the kitchen'' of the governor's mansion as the then-Gov. Clinton made unwelcome advances on her. Sherry Butler said that Ferguson, in speaking of that same incident to her, had said that Clinton "shoved her against a counter'' and wouldn't let her leave the kitchen. Butler added that Ferguson had been firm in her belief in Paula Jones' testimony. "That girl is telling the truth,'' Butler remembers her friend saying about Jones in the presence of several hospital workers sitting at a cafeteria table. "Don't put anything past'' Clinton, Ferguson said…."

NewsMax.com 3/3/99 Carl Limbacher "…Many of the Jane Does interviewed by Paula Jones investigators Rick and Beverly Lambert were reluctant to be dragged into the high-profile case and chose not to come forward. For one prospective Jane Doe, it was a physical impossibility. Kathy Ferguson was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head just five days after Jones filed suit against President Clinton. Kathy's ex-husband, Arkansas State Trooper Danny Ferguson, was named as a co-defendant. Her death was ruled a suicide by local police. With Kathy unavailable, the Lamberts interviewed her friends Sherry Butler and Sam Houston, who both worked at Little Rock's Baptist Memorial Hospital. Their names were submitted into evidence in the closing weeks of the impeachment trial as part of a supplemental witness list in the Jones case. Butler was a licensed practical nurse at Baptist Memorial. She and Houston, the hospital's urologist, were just two of several co-workers in whom Kathy had confided about her own unwanted encounter with Bill Clinton. In 1994, NewsMax.com's executive editor, Chris Ruddy, reported on the incident: "Houston had said he once asked Kathy if she had ever been harassed by Clinton when her former husband served on the governor's security detail. She responded with an account -- which is consistent with what other personnel at the hospital say Ferguson told them on separate occasions -- of having been 'blocked in the kitchen' of the governor's mansion as then-Governor Clinton made unwelcome advances on her. "Sherry Butler said that Ferguson, in speaking of that same incident to her, had said that Clinton 'shoved her against a counter' and wouldn't let her leave the kitchen. "Butler added that Ferguson had been firm in her belief in Paula Jones' testimony. 'That girl is telling the truth,' Butler remembers her friend saying about Jones." (Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Nov. 4, 1994) Rick Lambert confirmed to NewsMax.com that Kathy Ferguson was the reason Butler's and Houston's names were on the Jones witness list: …"

 

NewsMax.com 9/15/99 "....Clinton was so impressed by Kathy Ferguson, the wife of Danny Ferguson, another state trooper that guarded Clinton, that he asked Ferguson if he had naked pictures of his wife he could look at. Patterson said Ferguson told him and a fellow trooper that Clinton "wanted to know details about their sexual activity" and that Clinton clearly expressed his interest in his subordinate's wife. Clinton told Patterson that his extracurricular activities never posed a problem because as governor he could do as he pleased. "Larry, I'm the governor of the state of Arkansas. I work really hard and the laws that apply to everyone else shouldn't apply to me." ....."

Amanda 5-29-94

Dear Amanda, I feel that I have so much to say to you, but when I try to talk, I get all choked up. Your mother meant more to me than anything. I still love her so much. I never thought it was possible to love anyone this way. Even through our problems, we still shared a love for each other that is beyond words. Your mother was such a wonderful woman to all of us. She always greeted me with a smile, and if possible, a kiss and hug. I always felt so good whenever I was around her. I was so proud of her. I never could understand what she saw in me to love, but I gladly accepted it, and loved her all the more for it. Kathy was a wonderful woman both inside and out. I used to tell her that her outside was a bonus, I fell in love with the woman inside. When I asked her to marry me, she said yes right away, and I felt that I was the luckiest man in the world. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this wonderful, gorgeous woman. She was so proud of you and loved you very much. You were her pride and joy, and her friend. She would talk about you, to me, with a genuine gleam in her eyes, I see so much of her in you. I love and miss her so much. There are so many times that I feel like I can't go on without her. I'll never be able to love anyone like that, nor do I want to. I am an empty shell without her, existing from day to day, not really living. My world fell apart when she died. I wish I could trade places with her, she had so much to live for. I miss her so much and want to be with her so bad I can't stand it. I need her to hold me, and love me, and let me know everything will be ok. We shared so much together, and planned and dreamed of so much more. Amanda--I pray that you find love such as we shared. It is the best feeling in the world, but too many times, people tend to take it for granted, If you listen to the Garth Brooks song, "If Tomorrow Never Comes," It tells of this. It happened to me. Kathy left this world without me being able to tell her that I loved her more than anything. She left thinking that I didn't love her anymore. I'll never be able to forget this, and I'll never be able to forgive myself. I don't know if I can go on without her. I just want to be with her. At times, the pain is just too much. You are the only one I can talk to during this, hence this letter. If something does happen to me, I just wanted you to know my feelings. I feel like you are family to me. If anything were to happen to me, could you try to arrange for me to be buried beside your mother? That way we could still be together. I feel funny asking you this, but you are the only one that would understand. Kathy and I were both so excited about getting married. She was already signing some things as Kathy Shelton. That dream never came true for us. One thing has come from this--I am no longer afraid of dying. I don't know if I could do it myself, But I'm not so fearfull of it anymore. I am alone now, Kathy was my family, my reason to go on. I love my daughters very much, but it is not the same. I'm nothing without her and so many times, I feel like I have no reason to go on with life. The pain is just too much. Please know that your mother loved you dearly, and I have grown to love you like family.

Love Always, Bill…"

Freeper Betty from Cal "….To you, Amanda, whether you are who you say you are (and you may well be) or not: thank you for showing us two things. The first is the excerpts from the official documents that the rest of us have no access to. They have been revealing in several ways. I suspect most of us knew about the casing in the ashtray, but you have confirmed for us that it is part of the official PULASKI COUNTY CORONER'S REPORT and not the creation of a conspiracist. The hands "bagged prior to her demise" thing I'll come back to. The second major thing you've done for us is to show us personally how our spineless "leaders" in Washington get that way. To all of you who either doubt Amanda or who just think she's wrong in her conclusions: when you considered responding to her, didn't you get that prickly feeling in the pit of your stomach even though you could speak your mind in the safety of a screen name? I think most of us don't want to be confrontational with an innocent person who has already suffered a terrible loss, and those that don't believe the person innocent still don't want to look like meanies. Imagine how public people whose names and faces are linked to their statements feel when they are branded "mean-spirited" or whatever just because they told the truth as they saw it. If we, and they, can be intimidated this easily, we don't have a prayer of prevailing against the ruthless. (It doesn't matter whether the intimidation factor is intended or not.)

…..Which brings me to the next point: intended intimidation. I suspect the Medical Examiner's glaring statement "which were bagged prior to her demise" and the ridiculous casing in the ashtray were not mistakes. I suspect they are warnings to anyone else who might "have a big mouth". Difficult as it may be, put yourselves in the shoes of the scumbags. If you have one possible leak, all you have to do is turn it off. A believable suicide would be the best choice. But what if you had literally hundreds of leaks to prevent? Pretty difficult and dangerous to kill them all; better to kill a few with THE MESSAGE VERY CLEAR to the others. I thought it was interesting that when Judge Moody's son (Lisa Foster's stepson) died in an "unusual" car accident after telling two reporters he had revealing papers from Vince Foster's home, the paper made some remark about his being remembered for his loyalty. I found that a strange insertion, but I thought the point was pretty clear……"

Forty years ago- 1959 or thereabouts- would have seen the birth of the Dixie Mafia and the State-Line Mob running the roadhouses that funded the attempted hit on Pusser, and also provided the seed money for other Dixie criminal enterprises that funnelled the cash to their loose but brutal senior partners in what passed for that outfit's headquarters: Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Ron Brown

The Commerce Secretary died on April 3, 1996, in an Air Force jet carrying Brown and 34 others, including 14 business executives on a trade mission to Croatia, crashed into a mountainside. The Air Force, in a 22-volume report issued in June of 1996, confirmed its initial judgment that the crash resulted from pilot errors and faulty navigation equipment. At the time of Brown's death, Independent Counsel Daniel Pearson was seeking to determine whether Brown had engaged in several sham financial transactions with longtime business partner Nolanda Hill shortly before he became secretary of commerce. (1)

Ron Brown Former Chairman, DNC; Commerce Secretary Died May 3, 1996. Ron Brown died along with 39 other people when the T-43 (a converted 737 used by the Air Force) carrying the group on a trip to Bosnia crashed while approaching the Dubrovnik airport. On the verge of being indicted and having stated his willingness to make a deal with prosecutors, Ron Brown's death brought to an end his ability to testify. Military investigators concealed from the public the fact that a perfectly cylindrical hole, the size of a .45-caliber round, was found in the top of his head. No autopsy was performed. (2)

Ron Brown - former DNS Chairman, Commerce Secretary. Reported to have died in a plane crash, but new evidence reveals he may have been shot in the head. He was being investigated by a special investigator and was about to be indicted with 54 others. He spoke publicly of his willingness to "make a deal" with the prosecutors to save himself a few days before the fatal trip. He was not supposed to be on the flight but was asked to go at the last minute. (This count does not include the other business leaders and other passengers who died on this government-sponsored trade mission.) What new evidence? Ron Brown and 34 others were killed in a plane crash in Croatia on 3 April 1996. The plane slammed into a mountain while on landing approach. There were no survivors. See what the Air Force had to say about this crash. As for this nonsense about Brown being shot in the head, immediately after the crash pathologists on the scene said most of the bodies (Brown's among them) were so badly burned DNA testing had to be performed to identify who was who. A body has to be in really bad shape if fingerprints can't be lifted, dental charts can't be compared to remains. Had Brown been shot in the head, no one at the crash site would have known from looking at him. A lot has been made of an x-ray of Brown's skull in which what looks like a round entry wound appears. Identical perfectly round marks show up in the x-rays of other victims taken at the same time. Particles in a faulty x-ray cassette account for all of them. Closer examination of Brown's skull by military officials revealed no bullet, no bone fragments, no metal fragments and, even more telling, no exit wound. (3)

". Complimentary to our 5 pending lawsuits against the Clinton -Gore Commerce Dept, are our efforts to further a government investigation of former Commerce Secretary Ron Brown's death in a plane crash over Crotia. At the time of Ron Brown's death, he was scheduled to be deposed by Judicial Watch. He was also a target of an independent counsel's investigation where an indictment was expected. Brown's former business partner, Nolanda Hill, told Judicial Watch that days before Brown died, Brown went to see Clinton and told him that he intended to enter a plea agreement with the federal prosecutor and testify against the Administration…"

"…Clinton responded, according to Hill's sworn testimony, with a terse "that's nice" and Brown told Hill that Clinton left the room in icy silence. Judicial Watch is now representing several of the pathologists and a photographer of the Armed Forces Pathology Institute who examined Brown's body and observed a .45 caliber bullet hole in Ron Brown's head. Judicial Watch has filed Freedom of Information Act requests to obtain all the data on the Brown place crash from the military, the Clinton-Gore Commerce Dept, as well as the Justice and Transportation Departments. The responses to our requests are overdue, and we are now filing suit. Our clients are also considering filing whistleblower suits for Pentagon retaliation against them. That would give us the ability to investigate the apparent cover-up in Ron Brown's death.."

In the minutes before Brown's plane crashed, five other planes landed at Dubrovnik without difficulty, and none experienced problems with the beacons. But additional questions about the beacons and the crash will remain unanswered because, as the Air Force acknowledges, airport maintenance chief Niko Junic died by gunshot just three days after the crash and before he could be interviewed by investigators. Within a day of his death, officials determined the death was a suicide. The New York Times reported the 46-year-old Junic was "despondent over a failed romance."."

William Colby

 

Freeper archy:

27 APR 1996: Former Director of Central Intelligence [CIA director] William Colby, 76 drowned while canoeing in the Wimocico River near Colby's home in Rock Point, Md.

For the previous two years, Colby had been a contributing editor with a monthly financial newsletter, Strategic Investment, co-edited by James Dale Davidson and former Times of London editor Lord William Rees Mogg, and which had been closely covering the unfolding economic and banking aspects of the Whitewater scandal and the contemporaneous shooting death of White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster. In February Colby had begun a weekly column on geo-political matters and their effects on investments in Strategic Weekly Briefings - a facsimile newsletter tailored for high-income investors, and had developed an interest in the Waco events and their connection to the dead White House lawyer.

Biography:

William E. Colby (1920-1996) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and received a bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 1940 and a law degree from Columbia in 1947. During World War II, he worked in the Office of Strategic Services, serving behind the lines in France and Norway. After the war and a brief stint practicing law, he returned to the craft of intelligence, serving the Central Intelligence Agency in Rome, Stockholm, and Saigon, before becoming the bureau chief of the Far Eastern Division (based in Washington) from 1963 to 1968. He served in increasingly responsible positions culminating in his promotion to Director of Central Intelligence in 1973. Noted as the "gentleman spy who let the sun shine in" on the CIA, Colby was at the agency's helm at the height of public concerns over its activities. He responded to these concerns by disclosing details of many CIA operations--some of a dubious nature--earning the opprobrium of many within the agency and the admiration of its critics. In 1976, President Gerald Ford asked for his resignation and appointed a more circumspect George Bush to the directorate. Colby published his memoirs, Honorable Men, My Life in the CIA, in 1978. He returned to the business world, serving as a consultant to businesses with international interests (specializing in the Far East) and giving speeches on national security, the role of intelligence in a democracy, and current world affairs. On April 27, 1996, he disappeared while canoeing on the Wicomico River near his home in Maryland and was found several days later. His death was ruled an accident, and authorities presumed he had a stroke or heart attack before falling into the water.

the Colby Papers http://libweb.princeton.edu/libraries/firestone/rbsc/finding_aids/colby.html

Retired CIA director was found dead on May 6,1996 after his wife reported him missing on April 27,1996. Apparently, Colby decided to go on impromptu canoeing excursion and never returned. Colby who had just started writing for Strategic Investment newsletter, worried many in the intelligent community. Colby's past history of divulging CIA secrets in the past were well known. Strategic Investor had covered the Vince Foster suicide and had hired handwriting experts to review Foster's suicide note. (1)

Director of Central Intelligence (ret) Died April 27, 1996 William Colby had been the DCI from 1973 to 1976 under Nixon and Ford. At age 76, Colby had found a new career and had just started writing for Strategic Investment at the time of his death. This had worried many insiders in the intelligence community who felt that Colby had already divulged too many of the CIA's secrets in the preceding years. Indeed, his dismissal by Ford because of his over-cooperation with congressional investigations into CIA wrongdoing. It was Colby who had revealed to Congress the plans to kill Fidel Castro, the spying on American citizens (in direct violation of the CIA charter) and the conducting of biological tests by the CIA on unsuspecting citizens. He was replaced by George Bush. According to the original CNN report, Colby was reported missing by neighbors who "recovered" his canoe, by one story from under the dock at Colby's house, by another report, a quarter mile downstream. Colby was, by all reports, a methodical, tidy man, yet police found his home unlocked, his computer on, and a partly eaten dinner on the table. The official story is that Colby just put down his fork and decided to drop everything and go canoeing.

Colby at 76 was still a world-traveler and consultant to many corporations. He recently became an editor of an important financial newsletter, "Strategic Investment," which covered the Vince Foster "suicide" in detail. Its editors hired three renowned handwriting experts to investigate Foster's suicide note, which hadn't been found when his briefcase was first searched, but later materialized, torn into pieces, with no fingerprints on any of the pieces. Upon comparing this document with others of Foster's writings, these experts declared it was a forgery, and a not very good one at that. Colby had old enemies as well as new, with plenty of motives for his extermination. He was in charge of the infamous Operation Phoenix during the Vietnam War, in which more than 20,000 South Vietnamese citizens -- supposedly Viet Cong sympathizers -- were rounded up, tortured and executed. In the 1970s he opened some of the secrets of the CIA to Congress: "Colby insisted on going public about the agency's role in tapping the telephones and opening the mail of Americans; plotting the assassination of Fidel Castro, and using human guinea pigs for mind-control experiments involving LSD," the Times reports. On Monday, May 6, Colby's body was found just 20 yards from where his canoe had been recovered, in an area that had been thoroughly searched several times by helicopters and search teams. Most notable about the body was the absence of a life jacket, which according to his wife, Colby always wore on the water. (2)

NewsMax.com 3/25/99 Christopher Ruddy "…On April 29, 1996, the wires flashed with hot news: Former CIA Director William Colby had disappeared from his country home on the Wicomico River in Maryland. Authorities suspected he died in a canoeing accident, as his waterlogged canoe was found on the shore near his home. A week later, his body surfaced in the marsh near his home. After a perfunctory autopsy, local police authorities closed the case as an accident. Still, there were many reasons to suspect foul play. These suspicions began as soon as the initial press reports came out. As expected, the Associated Press ran the first wire story. Colby "was missing and presumed drowned" the AP reported. The wire story said he died as the result of "an apparent boating accident." Quoting a source close to Mrs. Colby, who was in Texas at the time her husband disappeared, the AP stated Colby had spoke via phone with his wife on the day he disappeared. He told her he was not feeling well, "but was going canoeing anyway." This would be an important clue pointing to an accidental death, had it been true. But someone fabricated this story out of whole cloth. A week later, Colby's wife rebutted the AP report, telling the Washington Times her husband was well, and made no mention of canoeing. This initial, false report that relieved obvious suspicion was, for me, a red flag of a cover-up Interesting, too, were the obituaries being written. All detailed Colby's fabled career in the World War II-era OSS, the James Bond-like spy who parachuted behind Nazi lines and became a stellar CIA agent. After heading up the Company's Phoenix program in Vietnam, Colby was tapped by President Nixon for the position of DCI -- Director of Central Intelligence. These obituaries detailed a formidable list of Colby's associations after he left the CIA. Yet, nowhere did any media report Colby's most significant occupation at the time of his death -- contributing editor for Davidson's Strategic Investment. Odd that Colby's major affiliation at the same time of his death deserved no notice…."

Colby's body was identified by his wife, Sally Shelton-Colby. Last week, she said she hoped her husband would be found, injured and awaiting rescue.

" '60 Minutes' said they wanted a second opinion, so they sent it to a firm called Infraspection, in Vermont, I seem to remember. It came back with a written report that said 'Yeah, those are gunshots, and we can see people moving around.' Then '60 Minutes' killed the story; this is back in 1996. "Afterward, Infraspection refused to publicly confirm its findings, apparently because of potential negative consequences to the firm-I think those were the words they used. At that point, the guy's comment was 'Too many people are in their graves over this already.' I believe he was referring at that point to William Colby, whom Gordon (Novel) said had given him the FLIR gunshot info, and who had been found dead just before this conversation."

Gerald Solomon, R-N.Y., asked Reno ``to ensure that Mr. Chung is forthcoming with all his meetings with Pentagon officials since January of 1993.'' ………Chung has agreed to help federal prosecutors look for campaign finance abuses. …... Justice Department spokesman Bert Brandenburg declined to comment on the letter, saying he had not seen it. Solomon wrote that he was concerned about alleged attempts by China to buy access to the highest levels of the Clinton administration in order to influence U.S. policy toward China. China ``apparently has been successful in gaining access to classified information and improperly influencing economic, defense and foreign policy initiatives,'' Solomon, chairman of the House Rules Committee, asserted. Solomon also included a copy of a March 3, 1995, letter signed by Dalton thanking Chung for photographs Chung had enlarged. ……. ``I received the photographs that you had enlarged for me, and I can´t tell you how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness,´´ the letter said. ``I look forward to seeing you when you are next in D.C.´´ Solomon also asked Reno to tell him of any communications work or consulting Chung or any of his associates performed for any White House officials or for officials of the Democratic National Committee. …….."

Freeper John Huang is a Chinese Spy 6/24/00 "….. We all know Boorda's scheduled interview with Newsweek was supposed to take place at 2:30pm on the day of his death. What wasn't so widely reported was/is this: Excerpt from John Dalton's Legacy of Deceit by Gerald L. Atkinson, Washington Times, 4 July 1998: ……....found on page 85 of The New Yorker article (' What Killed Admiral Boorda?', 16 September 1996) by Peter Boyer. On the day of ADM Boorda's suicide, '...Boorda had a full schedule that afternoon -- a meeting with the Deputy Secretary of Defense (John White) at one-fifteen, and a meeting with President Clinton at the White House at three-thirty ...' Boyer gives us these facts but leaves them unexplained in his account of Boorda's suicide. Why? What was the agenda for these two meetings? Why would a Chief of Naval Operations be summoned to the White House? In this day and age, it is extraordinarily unusual for a service chief to be called to a meeting at the White House -- one on one -- with the President. The Commander in Chief deals exclusively with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff when communicating with the service chiefs. This has been the vogue for at least the past two decades. And especially with this Commander in Chief, who even eschews daily briefings on national security issues. ……."

Lt. Col. Tom McKenney USMC (Ret.) 10/96 "……. There is something strange and profoundly important going on between Bill Clinton and the People's Republic of China (which is still called Red China by many of us military types). ……. But even more unbelievable, and more dangerous, is the export of our most advanced naval technology to Red China. …….There is in Washington, D.C., a group called the Generals' and Admirals' Mess. It is a regular gathering of officers (both active duty and retired) of flag rank. They meet regularly, have dinner together, discuss military and political affairs, and hear invited, high-level speakers. …….. Shortly before his suicide death last year, Admiral Boorda, Chief of Naval Operations, was the speaker for the flag officers' mess. In his speech, Boorda reported proudly that our advanced naval technology - highly classified secret information for which a foreign nation would pay millions, and for which any spy would kill - is being voluntarily given to Red China! …….After the CNO's speech was concluded, Major General John K. Singlaub, USA (Ret.), amazed and horrified, approached the admiral and expressed disbelief. After all, China is a sworn enemy of our nation and all that we represent, and is the only nation on Earth with the power to be an actual threat to our existence. ...... Under certain circumstances, it may be justifiable to share such secret technology with an Allied Nation such as Great Britain. But to give it to an enemy nation is suicidal madness, and an act of treason for which a member of the Armed Forces or a private citizen could be executed. ………..According to General Singlaub, when he asked Admiral Boorda how such a thing could be justified, the admiral smiled uneasily and said, "It is the President's ... the administration's policy." Nothing in the Clinton administration "just happens," and I assure you that nothing of significance happens (at least not more than once) without the knowledge and personal approval of Clinton himself. Nothing. ……."

Detroit News story: …..http://www.detnews.com/menu/stories/48325.htm ……. Rear Adm. Kendell Pease said that when he told Boorda at 12:30 p.m. what the subject of the interview was, the admiral abruptly announced he was going home for lunch instead of eating a meal brought to his Pentagon office. …….. "Admiral Boorda was obviously concerned," Pease said. …… Pease also quoted the admiral as saying, "I'll tell them (Newsweek) the truth" regarding the medals. …….. Law enforcement sources said Boorda left two notes, one to his wife and another to two friends, saying he was upset because his honor and integrity were about to be questioned. …….. Boorda's body was found about 2:05 p.m. People nearby heard the gunshot and rushed to his aid. He was declared dead at 2:30 p.m. at D.C. General Hospital. ……"

CNN story: http://www.cnn.com/US/9605/16/boorda.6p/index.html "……. CNN has learned from Pentagon sources that Boorda wrote two letters before he died, one to his family and one addressed to sailors. ……Sources said that in the typewritten note to the sailors, Boorda explained that he took his life because of the questions raised about his wearing of "V" for valor medals on his combat ribbon from Vietnam. ….A U.S. Navy official who met with Boorda in the hours preceding his death said Boorda was "obviously concerned" about a scheduled meeting Thursday with two Newsweek reporters pursuing the story. ......,, The 57-year-old chief of naval operations was rushed to D.C. General Hospital after he was found outside his quarters at the Washington Navy Yard, the Navy said. An emergency room physician said Boorda arrived with a gunshot wound to the chest. Five minutes later, at 2:30 p.m. EDT, he was pronounced dead. ……. According to Newsweek editor Maynard Parker, the news magazine was working on a story that called into question two medals Boorda received during the Vietnam war. ……. Rear Adm. Kendell Pease, who was with Boorda a little over an hour before the shooting, said that when he told Boorda, at about 12:30 p.m., what the subject of the interview was, the admiral abruptly announced he was going home for lunch instead of eating the meal that had been brought to his office. ……"

From a Knight-Ridder Newspapers story: http://archives.seattletimes.nwsource.com/cgi-bin/texis/web/vortex/display?slug=boor&date=19960517&query=boorda "…….Pease, the Navy's chief spokesman, said that at 12:30 p.m., when he told Adm. Boorda about the 2:30 p.m. interview, the admiral asked him how they should handle the questions, then without waiting for a reply, answered his own question: "We'll just tell him the truth." …….Pease said the admiral abruptly announced he was going home for lunch. ……..Adm. Boorda stormed to his car, brushed past his driver and drove himself home, a law-enforcement source said. The concerned driver apparently followed him home in a second car and arrived to find him mortally wounded, the source said. …….
Freeper John Huang is A Chinese Spy asks:
Question 1: Where did Boorda find time to type two letters if his driver followed him to his house and found his body dead on the front lawn when he got there?
Question 2: How did Pease know the subject of Newsweek's planned interview but Boorda did not?
Question 3: Why does one news report say one letter was addressed to his wife and one to Navy sailors and another news report says one was addressed to his wife and the other to two of his friends?
Question 4: Why would Boorda go back outside to commit suicide anyhow? Why did he just not kill himself in the house when he allegedly went to get the gun? ……"

Navy Admiral Jeremy "Mike" Boorda was found outside his Washington D.C. home with a bullet wound in his chest. The death was immediately ruled a suicide. It was believed he committed suicide because he was about to be outed by Newsweek magazine for wearing valor medals he did not properly earn. A June 1998 naval report proved this assumption to be false, however. Adm. Boorda's boss John Dalton served in his post from 1993 until November 1998 (he announced his decision to leave in June). Prior to joining the Pentagon, Dalton was employed by Stephens Incorporated. Stephens Inc. became joint-owner of Little Rock's Worthen Bank with Mochtar Riady's Lippo Group in 1984. Mochtar's son, James Riady, was named the bank's director. Worthen loaned $3.5 million to the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign. Mochtar Riady was the biggest individual donor in the 1992 White House run. Both the FBI and CIA have stated they believe the Riadys to be agents of China. Stephens Inc. founder Jackson Stephens is a close friend and financial supporter of former President Bush. Ohmlaw 00

BTW, there are conflicting media reports on how Boorda's body was discovered. If I get some time I will track them down. One had Boorda fleeing Pease's office in an emotional state and his driver following behind him and finding his body dead at home. Another report I read said Boorda's body was found by a neighbor... 6/20/00 John Huang Is A Chinese Spy

Another rumor floating around was that Boorda, and others, intended on arresting Clinton for treason, then they in turn would be arrested and placed on trial, and as a consequence Clinton's treason would be exposed at their trial. ... Some of those rumored to have been involved with Boorda were Retired Admiral Engen [died in a "lite"/sailplane crash] and William Colby {the supposed canoeing accident}. ……Others supposedly connected to Boorda and Colby were military honchos who went down in a crash near Alexander City, Alabama the day before the OKC bombing, and still others went down in a plane crash near Huntsville, AL; I do not have the cause of death of supposedly yet another--methinks I'm recollecting correctly in stating the name "McCloud," the commander of the military district of Alaska. 6/20/00 Freeper metalbird1

Barbara Wise

Wise a 14-year Commerce Department employee found dead and partially naked in her office following a long weekend. She worked in the same section as John Huang. Officially, she is said to have died of natural causes. (1)

Barbara Wise Commerce Department staffer Died Nov. 29, 1996 As the scandals continued to swirl around the Commerce Department, and most of all about John Huang, one of Huang's associates, Barbara Wise, was found dead in her locked office at the Department of Commerce, partially nude and covered with bruises. No cause of death has ever been announced. (2)

Barbara Wise - Commerce Department secretary. Worked with Ron Brown and John Huang and had extensive knowledge of their activities. Found dead in her locked office the day after Thanksgiving. It was ruled a suicide. Interestingly, she was found partially clothed, bruised, and in a pool of blood. There was no pool of blood, and Barbara Wise's death was never ruled a suicide by anyone. She was discovered in her Commerce Department office on 29 November 1996 after last being seen alive on 27 November 1996, the day before Thanksgiving. A thorough investigation uncovered no evidence of foul play or suicide. Wise had a history of frequent and severe health problems, including liver ailments. Her death was attributed to natural causes. (3)

Missy Kelly's Analysis "…The partially nude body of Barbara Alice Wise, 48, was found at 7:45 AM in her LOCKED fourth floor office at the Commerce Department, Friday morning, Nov. 29, 1996. Ms. Wise worked in Commerce's INTERNATIONAL TRADE ADMINISTRATION, known as ITA. The DOA showed up in the same department that Huang and Yee were both associated with when they worked at Commerce. Interesting. ….Lets look at this story as it played out in the press…

9:58 AM Friday The story breaks: A dead body, female, is found on the fourth floor of Commerce, by a colleague. Colleague, un-named. The District of Columbia Police are conducting the investigation. No name [pending notification of relatives], no details.

12:01 Friday Reuters: Body found in deceased's office, where the International Trade Administration has offices. Cause of death not yet determined. Police say the city's medical examiner would perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of her death. Case being investigated by Homicide branch. Woman last seen alive Wednesday at 4 PM. Commerce building was closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving.

1:23 PM Friday AP reports the body was found at 7:45 AM that morning. The woman, still unidentified, had worked for Commerce for 14 years, in the department's International Trade Administration. "She specialized in trade development, working in the unit that provided analysis of various industries." No details on the cause of death. "Police also would immediately release few details."

1:39 PM Friday AP reports President Clinton flew to the White House today, from Camp David where he'd spent Thanksgiving. Clinton had already returned [by 1:39 PM] to western Maryland for a round of golf. He spent less than two hours at WH, one them with Harry Thomasson. ….This story...from AP and the WH...infers that Bill came to the WH to meet with Thomasson to finalize some inauguration plans that needed to get to the "printers". We all know that the small fry GO TO THE PRESIDENT, not the other way around. Thomasson would have flown to the President. ...Notice the time that BC arrived is not stated, but we do know he was gone by the time this story was reported: 1:39 PM. He was there for 2 hours. That means he was in DC no later than 11:30 AM, possibly earlier.

2:29 PM Friday UPI Report Just in case you didn't buy the above excuses for Bill's sudden appearance at the White House, how about these from UPI excerpts: 1] a quick trip to the White House to gather data he wants to study in planning his second inauguration 2] Mrs. Clinton had the Christmas decoration of the White House to supervise as it got underway Friday and Chelsea had to attend a rehearsal for her performance in the Washington Ballet's annual Christmas performance of "The Nutcracker Suite." 3] In addition, an aide said Mrs. Clinton had to prepare for her trip to Bolivia Monday afternoon where she will attend the annual meeting of the first ladies of the Americas. Before she departs, she will host a press preview of the White House Christmas decorations….. But more importantly, contrary to the AP article above, which inferred that Bill came to the WH to MEET with Thomasson, it turns out Thomasson and Clinton had been together for days: The president returned to the Executive Mansion with his wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea, 16. Along with him was Hollywood producer Harry Thomasson, who with his wife Linda Bloodworth Thomasson, a prominent sitcom writer, spent Thanksgiving Day with the Clinton clan at the mountain top retreat….. Thomasson and Bill Did NOT HAVE to meet at the White House. They were together all along. They could have had their meeting at Camp David. If they needed info, they'd have sent a lackey. Clearly, this "meeting" was an EXCUSE for the sudden return to DC. Clearly, the real reason for Clinton's sudden trip to the White House was NOT BEING TOLD. And there is more weirdness: "The president... carried a briefcase as he strolled to the waiting helicopter to return to Camp David. He wore a leather jacket and was followed by an aide carrying a huge box of inaugural papers." Okay. Put on your thinking cap. When have you EVER seen ANY President CARRYING ANYTHING as the get into or out of the Presidential helicopter...? Seriously...WHEN HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A PRESIDENT CARRYING ANYTHING? [I believe it is against security rules for the president to be encumbered in such a fashion. That's why others carry everything.]

5:21 PM Friday [AP] This is critical! The AP STILL says: "The name of the 48-year-old woman was being withheld pending notification of relatives." In itself, this means nothing. But then you have THIS BOMBSHELL: "District of Columbia police spokesman J C Stamps said that an autopsy was being performed." The DOA's relatives have NOT been informed YET the body is already on the table being autopsied. Not only did the autopsy start BEFORE the relatives had been informed of the DOA's death, but the autopsy started less 10 HOURS after the body was found….. Just think common sense. There are a lot of DOA's in Washington DC. There is ALWAYS a back log of bodies to be autopsied. NO DOA gets autopsied in less than 10 hours unless someone decides to bump THIS DOA to the top of the list. WHO? WHY? Were the officers of the crime scene present at the autopsy, per standard procedure? Was the autopsy in progress when whoever attended got there? Was there anyone from the DC Police even present at the autopsy? Who performed the autopsy?

Continuing from the AP story: District of Columbia police spokesman J C Stamps...did not rule out foul play. "We are looking into all possibilities," he said. A local television station, WRC, quoted unidentified police sources as saying that the office where the body was found was locked and the body was partially nude. Whoa. A dead body, found partially nude, in a locked office, in the same Commerce Department where Yee and Huang once worked, where documents are being requested and subpoenaed left and right, is being autopsied less than 10 hours after it is found, and before the relatives have been notified.

1:30 AM Saturday Morning Nearly six hours has elapsed since AP's last story on the DOA…… In the wee hours of the morning AP announces the name of the Commerce DOA, one Barbara Alice Wise, 48, of Gambrills, Md. It is also noted that "the unit where she worked provided analysis for various industries designed to boost export sales." Again, from AP: Sgt. Michael Farish, a homicide investigator with District of Columbia police, said officers have found no signs of foul play and believe that she died of natural causes. But the case continued to be investigated as a homicide, he said. A preliminary autopsy was unable to determine the cause of death Friday. The Police say "no signs of foul play", yet she was found partially naked, in a locked office. And the police say she died of "natural causes" even though the autopsy was UNABLE to determine the cause of death. Humm. Interesting. What natural causes would that be, that an autopsy can't determine? No, they tell us: the autopsy didn't determine why she died, partially naked, in a locked room. But it was of natural causes, and there were "no signs of foul play." And it would continue to be investigated as a homicide.

James Hoobler 11/21/96 Wall Street Journal 8 days before Barbara Wise’s death: "… Let me make it perfectly clear that no files have been taken by the CIA or any other agency. All files remain in my custody. In addition, I took custody of the safe and its contents at the request of the SBA's Office of General Counsel, not in response to a subpoena....As for the classified documents, Executive Order 12958, Section 4.2, prohibits disclosure without the authorization of the agency that originally classified the document…."

Freeper Demidog 9/20/98 "…..Barbara Alice Wise, 48, was found dead on Thanksgiving weekend, 1996, in a locked 4th floor Department of Commerce office. Initial media reports said that the D.C. police were investigating the death as a possible homocide……. This was front page news in my mind but in fact the story was burried almost before it broke……. ……The first wire reports said that Ms. Wise was found "partialy nude" ( according to a Local TV station which sourced an unnamed policeman) in her locked commerce dept. office. Police at this time had not ruled out foul play. Neigbors were interviewed and were quoted as saying that Ms. Wise had been sick for the past 5 months. One neighbor said she had numerous health problems and was a nice woman who kept to herself……… In the second "Capitol" follow up report by reporter Jeff Nelson, Ms. Wise's health problems were upgraded to "severe and frequent including liver ailments" from the previous "been quite sick for the past 4 or 5 months". Also reported in this article was that a preliminary autopsy had been performed, in less than ten hours after the body was found and before her son or ex-husband had been notified, and had not determined a cause of death……."

Freeper Demidog 9/20/98 "…..I found a very brief mention in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution which apparently capped the story. In a column entitled "Q&A in the news", was this bit of information:
"Q: Has there been any determination of the cause of death of the woman who was found dead in her office at the Commerce dept?"
"A: Barbara Alice Wise 48, of Gambrills Md., died of natural causes, as the Journal-Constitution reported in December. An autopsy found that the cause was end-stage liver disease, with alcoholism as a contributing condition. Wise appeared to have been drinking in her office when she died the day before Thanksgiving. Her body was found by a co-worker the day after thanksgiving. The incident attracted an inordinate amount of attention because it occurred inside a federal office building. Wise was a 14-year employee of the International Trade administration, working in a section that helps U.S. companies boost exports."
…..In fact, no autopsy information has actually been reported in the press as far as I can tell. The preliminary autopsy was reported, but after that ( wish I had a Nexus/Lexis account) the story just totally dropped off the planet. And as I later found out, here has never been an official report made available to the public. Sound fishy? Read on. …."

Freeper Demidog 9/20/98 "…..…… The principles (Tuesday Sept 11th, 1997) Talked to the detective who handled the case today, Jerry Sitek. Ms. Wise was found completely nude in an adjacent locked office to her own. Her body was covered with bruises. She was found by a female co-worker on Friday, at 7:45AM when she went to sign in for work. Apparently the office where Ms. Wise was found was actually her Bosses' (he wouldn't give me the bosses name or of the co-worker who found Ms Wise). The "sign-in" book resided there. Wise was slumped over in the middle of the room on the floor. Sitek surmised that Wise had gotten up from where she was sleeping and fallen down dead shortly thereafter. ……. Sometime after 4PM on Wednesday the 27th, Wise had deficated on herself and had apparently neatly folded her soiled pantyhose along with her other clothing except for a sweater. She used the sweater as a blanket while she slept in her locked office. According to detective Sitek, co-workers said she stayed at the office often out of fear of going home, and often drank on the job. While Sitek would not go so far as saying her co-workers were correct, he led me to believe that her son beat her and that was the cause of her fear and bruises. When I asked Detective Sitek how he thought she would be able to get away with such heavy drinking on the job he responded that it happens all the time. A partially depleted 5th of Vodka was found in her purse, and an almost full glass of Vodka was found on a table next to her couch. Mr. Sitek claimed at least 2 causes of death while we talked on the phone:heart attack, and liver failure and some vagueness on other organ failure...(was she tortured?) Detective Sitek told me the bruises were too old to be any factor in the cause of death. …..Problems so far with the tale from Detective Sitek:

How does one drink so heavily that your liver fails and keep a job at Commerce? Perhaps this doesn't speak to any kind of cover-up but to the shoddy Human Resources dept at Commerce...

If one "frequently" sleeps in her office, wouldn't one make sure a blanket and pillow were available? And is sleeping at the office an accepted practice in the Commerce dept?

Wise lived alone ( her son also lived alone). Why would Ms Wise be afraid to go home to an empty house? And on a Thanksgiving weekend?

And if she was so damn sick, wouldn't she have needed a hospital months earlier? I have never seen a picture of Ms Wise but sure would love to see one.

When I asked Detective Sitek whether toxicology from the autopsy supported her heavy drinking, he said that most of the alcohol would dissipate and you wouldn't be able to tell if she was really drunk. I didn't want to argue, but This doesn't make sense to me. I realize that alcohol does in fact evaporate but once the flow of blood stops, the alcohol still in the bloodstream can no longer be carried to the skin through the capilaries. It seems to me that while it might not be totally accurate, a toxicoligy report would at least speak to the veracity of witnesses who claimed she was a drunk. The claim of alcoholism has a certain Blumenthal quality to it doesn't it?

Also, on the matter of the alleged beatings by her son. As soon as Detective Sitek mentioned this, I actually had the presence of mind to mention to him that Troy didn't live with his mother. At this point Detective Sitek just about gave himself whiplash backpeddling. He said, "now we are aware of that and I can't be 100% sure that it really happened but that's what we were told by her co-workers so that's where we assumed the bruises came from. But I'm not gonna say that's where they actually came from." DC's finest are not sure about much are they? At any rate the case according to Detective Sitek is officialy classified as a death of natural causes. It is not being persued at this time. And when I initially called to find out which detective I should be talking to, I was told by Lt. Brown that the case was no longer in the homocide binder. …….. "

Freeper Demidog 9/20/98 "…..….D.C. Coroners office I called the Coroners office on Wednesday the September 10th, 1997. The first thing I was told ( I had to talk to the PR's officer ) was that autopsies are never released to the public. I didn't know this. The relevance of this fact is apparent when you start comparing the statements of reporters who assert results of a document which has never been seen by their own eyes. You must be a member of the family to get the actual report or get permission from a family member. ……. I found out that the there were two Dr's involved in the Autopsy. The examiner was a Dr. Jaardemal. And the supervising examiner was a Dr. Germinac. I'm not sure of the spelling. I was given Dr. Jaardemal's direct phone number and told that Wise's case number was 96-1408. Any specific information would have to be handled by the Doctor. ……. Dr. Jaardemal would not give me detailed information about the results. Natural causes was the finding. Natural causes....I was about to ask her if she knew Fahmy Malak but I stopped myself. According to Dr. Jaardemal:

The bruises on her body were not caused by a beating. The Dr. was emphatic about this. She also did not die of a heart attack. (Strike two for Sitek) But for the life of me I could not get her to tell me what it really was. So perhaps it was liver failure, but as far as I know, you don't just keel over from liver failure. …..Now perhaps they're all just idiots and she really died of a kidney failure and the bruises are from the dialasis (sp?). Only thing is her co-workers would definately know about that, and the beating story wouldn't have held water from the start. She would have had to leave every three days for treatment and the bruises caused are horrendous. So she hid her dialasis treatment from her co-workers by telling them the bruises were from her son beating her? Boy would I like to make contact with her son Troy and her ex-husband. I wonder what they would have to say about this. It sure is interesting that not a single mention of any contact with them is in the press reports. Only Troy is mentioned. And I don't even know If Wise is her married name or her re-assumed maiden name..( Sue me, I'm stupid for not asking Detective Sitek but I was a bit nervous too. I don't need a tax audit :-) I did find an address and phone for a Troy Wise from Baltimore. Phone was connected to a fax. ….."

NOT ON THE DOWNSIDE LEGACY

 

 

Mary C. Mahoney and Eric Butera

25, murdered at the Georgetown Starbuck's coffee bar over the 4th of July '97 weekend. She was a former White House intern who worked with John Huang. Apparently she knew Monica Lewinsky and her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton. Although not verified, it has been said that Lewinsky told Linda Tripp that she did not want to end up like Mahoney. (1)

White House intern Died July 1997 An attractive 25-year-old woman, Mahoney was a former White House intern for Bill Clinton working as the assistant manager at a Starbuck's Coffee shop in Georgetown. Gunmen entered the Starbuck's while the crew was cleaning up after closing. Mahoney's two associates, Aaron Goodrich, 18 and Emory Evans, 25, were taken to a room and shot. Mary herself had five bullets in her, from at least two different guns, most likely with silencers. A total of 10 shots were fired; none of them heard by neighbors in the densely populated Georgetown section. Mahoney was shot in the chest, her face, and in the back of the head. Even though more than $4,000 remained in the store, the police have categorized the triple murder as a robbery, even as they acknowledge the "execution style" killings. There was no sign of forced entry. One report said the cafe was still locked when the bodies were found the next morning. George Stephanopoulos, Monica Lewinsky and Chelsea Clinton were all regulars at the Starbuck's. (2)

Eric Butera An informant who came forward offering information regarding the murder of White House intern Mary Mahoney. He was then sent into a known crack house to make an undercover buy for the police and was beaten to death. (2)

Former White House intern gunned down in a coffee shop. Nothing was taken. It was suspected that she was about to testify about sexual harassment at the White House. Former White House intern Mary Caitrin Mahoney, 25, manager of a Georgetown Starbucks, was killed along with two co-workers (Emory Allen Evans, 25 and Aaron David Goodrich, 18) on 6 July 1997 during what police continue to investigate as a robbery of the shop. In March 1999 Carl Derek Havord Cooper (29) of Washington was arrested and charged with these murders. Yes, it is unusual that three employees were shot in the course of an alleged robbery, yet nothing was taken. However, no evidence has been uncovered to indicate that Mary Mahoney herself was the target of these killings. Perhaps the robber was scared away before he had a chance to grab the loot. Maybe one of Mary's co-workers was the real target. Why Cooper committed these killings is anybody's guess at this point, but there simply is no evidence that Mary was anything but a random victim of a violent crime. And, right away, we have come to the first big lie of the "Clinton Body Count" list: Any unexplained death can automatically be attributed to President Clinton by inventing a connection between him and the victim. Mary Mahoney did once work as an intern at the White House, but so have hundreds of other people who are all still alive. There is no credible reason why, of all the interns who have served in the Clinton White House, Ms. Mahoney alone would be the target of a Clinton-directed killing. (Contrary to public perception, very few interns work in the West Wing of the White House or have any contact with the President. The closest most interns get to the chief executive is a brief handshake or a group photo.) The putative reason offered for Mahoney's slaying -- that she was about to testify about sexual harrassment in the White House -- is a lie. This absurd justification apparently sprang from a hint dropped by Mike Isikoff of Newsweek just before the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke that a "former White House staffer" with the initial "M" was about to talk about her affair with Clinton. We all know now, of course, that the "staffer" referred to was Monica Lewinsky, not Mary Mahoney. The faithful will maintain, of course, that White House hit men rushed out, willy-nilly, and gunned down the first female ex-intern whose name began with "M" they could find. (3)

Mary Caity Mahoney interned for Doris Matsui. Doris Matsui was the White House official responsible for liaison with the Asian-American community, headed the Asian Pacific American Working Group (APAWG), which coordinated the activities of the White House, the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton-Gore re- election campaign with regard to Asian-Americans. APAWG, one of whose members was John Huang, came up with the plan to raise $7 million from Asian-Americans. Mary Mahoney was killed at a Starbucks. Eric Butera who was an informant in the case was beaten to death in a sting operation.

Hoffman's claim is corroborated by the Starr Report…… Hoffman claims to have uncovered new details about Mary Mahoney's time at the White House, which, if true, suggest the White House alum could have played a key role in the Clinton sex scandal despite her own homosexuality: "For many months, Mary, an outspoken lesbian and good hearted den mother for other young White House interns, had been listening to tearful stories from them about alleged sexual passes made at them by Bill Clinton. She'd begun to tell others she planned to do something to help them."

But his police career ended abruptly last summer when a lawyer on a civil case checked Brown's background and questioned key claims made by the detective in court and on his resume. Brown had told juries that he had a degree in pharmacology from Howard University and that he was a board-certified pharmacist in the District. Both claims suggested he had a special knowledge about the chemical makeup and workings of drugs. As it turned out, he had no such degree or certification from any institution, prosecutors said. .….. Brown's troubles began last summer when attorney Peter C. Grenier quizzed him at a deposition and did some follow-up digging. Grenier represented Terry Butera, the mother of Eric Butera, a D.C. police informant who was slain in December 1997 while trying to help homicide detectives solve a triple killing at a Starbucks coffee shop. Brown was to be the District's expert witness, but Grenier doubted his claims about a pharmacology degree and made calls to Howard University. That led to Brown's removal from the case. ..."

Washington Times 2/9/00 "….The death penalty was once declared unconstitutional because it was held to be "cruel and unusual." That description is certainly debatable - indeed, it was subsequently rejected by the Supreme Court when capital punishment was reinstated more than 20 years ago. But the decision by Attorney General Janet Reno to seek the death penalty in the case of Carl Derek Cooper - the gunman charged with a triple killing at a Georgetown Starbucks coffee shop on July 6, 1997 - could certainly be described as "arbitrary and capricious." Though murders are committed in the District almost every day, many of them equally brutal, the last person executed for capital murder was Robert E. Carter - in 1957. While the Starbucks murders certainly merit the ultimate sanction against the perpetrator of those crimes, surely it's unequal justice that other killers, guilty of similar or worse offenses, face at most life in prison - often with the possibility of parole after 20 years. Those who believe in the death penalty - and there are strong arguments in favor of it - ought to be concerned about this uneven application of justice…… The disconnect between sanctions for essentially the same crime, all dependent upon whether one is charged under federal or state law, is dangerous because to any fair-minded person it does indeed seem arbitrary, capricious - even cruel and unusual, for that matter. Cold-blooded murder is cold-blooded murder - no matter how the legal system might parse it…… If proved guilty, Carl Derek Cooper deserves to die. But so do others who are found guilty of similar crimes. That is the lesson - and the warning - to be gleaned from this horrible episode….."

Unknown - Ron Miller, Pneumonia? (Witness to Campaign Finance/Lums) (4)

NewsMax 12/29/99 Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff "….Oklahoma's chief medical examiner is exploring the possibility that a key government witness in the Independent Counsel's investigation of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown may have been murdered. In 1997, Oklahoma businessman Ron Miller provided the government key evidence -- including audio tapes -- against Eugene and Nora Lum, two fund-raisers with close ties to Brown and the Clinton White House. For more than two years Miller's death has been officially classified as "natural." But, last week, legal consultant Stephen Dresch persuaded the Oklahoma state medical examiner to reclassify Miller's cause of death as "unknown," saying that the available medical evidence was also "consistent with homicide." Dresch is currently involved in a lawsuit stemming from the 1996 plane crash death of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. Evidence provided by Miller to the independent counsel then probing Secretary Brown's business dealings helped prosecutors build a case against fund-raisers Eugene and Nora Lum. The Lums had given Brown's son Michael gifts of stock in their company, Dynamic Energy Resources, made him a board member and lavished him with six-figure consulting fees…… Miller had owned Gage Corp., a company that was sold in 1993 to Dynamic Energy. Miller also audiotaped his telephone conversations with the Lums and provided federal probers with 165 cassette recordings believed to be crucial to their prosecution. Dresch told NewsMax.com on Tuesday that Miller had taken elaborate steps to document his dealing with the Lums, bugging his own office and even his briefcase. "He realized he was in the middle of something big," Dresch explained….."

NewsMax 12/29/99 Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff "….However, the Clinton Justice Department, which had taken over Independent Counsel Daniel Pearson's probe of Commerce Secretary Brown's activities after Brown's April 1996 death, brought no action against the Lums related to their ties to Brown, his son or the Commerce Department. The Oklahoma couple were instead charged only with making illegal campaign contributions to Senator Edward Kennedy and an Oklahoma Democratic House candidate. Less than four months after the Lums pled guilty, Ron Miller was rushed to a Norman, Oklahoma hospital after becoming ill at home. Doctors were never able to determine the cause of his affliction. Miller died days later. "He went from being healthy to dying in a week," J. Dell Gordon told the Associated Press at the time, explaining that Miller had just turned over "boxes of material" to congressional investigators. Integris Baptist Medical Center, where Miller died in early October, 1997, turned the case over to the state medical examiner because hospital officials said the witness' death "was not fully explainable." Dr. James Marvel, a local physician who has studied the evidence in Miller's death, told NewsMax.com on Wednesday that he suspected the Oklahoma businessman may have been poisioned. "From the outside it certainly looks that way," Marvel said, adding, "I'd have to investigate further to see if this pattern fits into anything." After examining Miller's autopsy report, Dr. Marvel noted that several of his vital organs, particularly his lungs, were much heavier than normal. "It tells me that he sustained serious physical insult to his lungs." Marvel suggested that such an injury would be consistent with someone gradually overcome by an airborne toxin. "Whatever it was that killed Ron Miller entered through his lungs," said the Oklahoma doctor.

NewsMax 12/29/99 Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff "….Revealing a new and disturbing aspect of the case, Dresch said that Miller had been the subject of death threats in the months before he died. NewsMax.com has obtained a copy of a Norman Police report that backs up this claim. Dated 1/14/97, the "Offense Report" reads in part: "....suspect told Miller, 'You hadn't been shot at yet.' Mr. Miller said that the subjects he is dealing with have made a number of references to certain people wanting Mr. Miller dead. Mr. Miller said he recorded this telephone conversation." The police report names Dallas businessman Donald Sweatman as the source of the most recent threats. Though Dresch said that local police took Miller's complaint seriously at the time, a criminal investigation was never opened. The Miller tapes, which are still in the possession of the FBI, could have far reaching consequences if they ever see the light of day. It is believed that on one recording, Sweatman even implicates First Lady Hillary Clinton in the Lums' financial scheme: "Apparently the assertion that Sweatman made (on tape) was that Hillary had been instrumental in arranging a $4.5 million loan to Dynamic Energy back in 1993, so (the Lums) could purchase Miller's Gage Corporation," Dresch told NewsMax.com….."

Jim McDougal

Bill and Hillary Clinton friend, banker, and political ally, sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions. A key whitewater witness, dies of a heart attack on March, 8 1998. As of this writing allegations that he was given an injection of the diuretic lasix has not been denied or confirmed. Died on March 8, 1998 (1)

Banker Died March 8, 1998 Jim McDougal was serving his three-year sentence for bank fraud at the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center in Texas, a facility operated by the federal Bureau of Prisons for inmates who need medical attention. Just prior to another round of testimony before Kenneth Starr's grand jury, McDougal, while in solitary confinement, suffered a heart attack that may have been brought on by diuretics forced on him. When Jim McDougal was finally taken out of solitary, instead of attempting to defibrillate his heart with equipment on hand at the facility, he was driven over to John Peter Smith Hospital. Not the closest hospital to the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center, John Peter Smith hospital is a public hospital, where (in the words of one local) ,"They let interns practice on deadbeats." The single most damning fact to come out of the McDougal death was his injection with Lasix, a diuretic, to force his giving of a urine sample for drug testing, even though McDougal was not a known drug user. Lasix is contra-indicated in cases of heart disease and can cause excessive diuresis, blood volume reduction, circulatory collapse and vascular thrombosis or blood clots. If a matching potassium supplement is not administered at the same time, Lasix can kill. McDougal may have been taking the heart medication Digitalin, which cannot be combined with Lasix. Several inmates had gone public with the claim that McDougal was given a heavy injection of Lasix right after he ate lunch, but the prison system has refused to allow those prisoners to be interviewed or to release McDougal's medical records. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram recently acquired the official report of the McDougal death via a Freedom Of Information Act request, and found that doctors ignored McDougal's signs of imminent death.

Nash M.D. ".Jim McDougal was an interesting man..Yet there are a number of loose threads in his story that most have never heard of, and many don't seem to want to know about. ..Let's start with the facts -- we do have an autopsy which shows (I quote from official records): Severe hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Cardiomegaly. Left ventricular hypertrophy. Occlusive coronary atherosclerotic disease. Scars of carotid endarterectomy. Status post aorto-femoral bypass grafts. Once in jail he was given Prozac, an antidepressant, but evidently not other drugs according to some witnesses. (There was Prozac in his blood at autopsy. There is no evidence that he received high blood pressure medicine.) He was asked to give a urine specimen, and did not, saying he could not (an effect of antidepressants). The jail people gave him Lasix ( a diuretic) to force his urine (a drug he did not require otherwise). He was placed in a cold (60-degree) cell in isolation. He complained of chest pain but he was not under observation when he collapsed and died after transfer to the hospital. Now the fascinating part is that here is a man in a nationally discussed case, under supervision in a jail, who is known to have high-blood pressure, known to have high cholesterol, and has had not one but two surgical operations directed at the effects of his cholesterol, and they are not treating his cholesterol. He gets a drug he does not need, when they simply could have given him several glasses of water or tea and waited and he would have given them their requested urine sample.."

AP 9/13/98 "... McDougal, a former business partner of President Clinton and one of the first to withdraw his allegiance from Clinton, also had no access to his heart medication after he was placed in a solitary confinement cell known as "The Hole" at the Federal Medical Center prison in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram obtained the report under the Freedom of Information Act.One of the medicines, nitroglycerin, could have bought McDougal some time after he suffered a heart attack, according to a prison official who asked not to be identified, the newspaper reported in Sunday's editions.."

"Lasix is contra-indicated in cases of heart disease... ...McDougal may have been taking the heart medication Digitalin, which cannot be combined with Lasix." - These statements are innaccurate. Lasix is not contraindicated in heart disease, and Digitalis is often combined with Lasix, although very careful monitoring of bloodwork is required. Perhaps someone with a medical background can provide more data….Here is more documentation that Lasix and Digitalis are given simultaneously in CHF (with strict monitoring of electrolyte levels). The sentence, "McDougal may have been taking the heart medication Digitalin, which cannot be combined with Lasix" is both speculative and inaccurate. Another reason to follow the Alamo Girl Rule: "Just keep to the facts."

CHF: Medications

Lasix
Congestive Heart Failure

I would stress that this does not negate the other points in the listed information, just that the two sentence excerpts I posted in Reply # 4 are inaccurate. It is my opinion that there is not enough information here to conclude definitively his cause of death. Soo-prise, soo-prise. – Nita Nuprez

NewsMax.com 5/17/00 Carl Limbachr "…….On April 27, 1998, Independent Counsel Ken Starr's chief Little Rock deputy Hickman Ewing assembled his team of prosecutors to decide whether to indict Hillary…..However, as Schmidt and Weisskopf report, Ewing's case against the first lady had a giant hole in it. "The biggest problem was the death a month earlier of Jim McDougal.... Without him, prosecutors would have a hard time describing the S&L dealings they suspected Hillary Clinton had lied about." Immediately after McDougal's death, Starr's office suggested that hours of interviews with McDougal had given investigators such a complete record that his demise would make little difference in the outcome of the case. ………But apparently that wasn't true, at least according to Schmidt and Weisskopf. So when McDougal's jailers pulled him out of his regular cell for a drug test that chilly Texas Saturday night, they inadvertently did Mrs. Clinton a huge favor. Prison records later revealed McDougal had been excused from urine drug tests; the fourteen different medications he was on, including several to treat his heart condition, left him unable to urinate on demand. But somebody apparently forgot to tell the guards on duty that night. When he couldn't comply, guards tossed the key Whitewater witness into solitary confinement - after confiscating his heart drugs. Fellow inmates told McDougal biographer Curtis Wilkie that guards ignored the dying man's cries for help as he lapsed into cardiac arrest that night…….At 10:30 a.m. guards "discovered" his body. Jim McDougal would never testify again. Two years later Mrs. Clinton, instead of planning her legal defense strategy, is strategizing on how to extend the Clinton era well into the 21st Century. ……"

Johnny Lawhon

29, died March 29, 1998- The Arkansas transmission specialist who discovered a pile of Whitewater documents in the trunk of an abandoned car on his property and turned them over to Starr, was killed in a car wreck two weeks after the McDougal death. Details of the "accident" have been sketchy -- even from the local Little Rock newspaper. (1)

Johnny Franklin Lawhon Died March 29, 1998 In the spring of 1997, a tornado ripped through some junked cars at Johnny's Transmission shop and opened up the trunk of a car that proved to have a box of Whitewater records in it, including a copy of a $27,000 cashier's check drawn on Madison and payable to Bill Clinton. Lawhon realized what he was looking at and turned the box of documents over to the FBI. According to police, Lawhon and a friend hit a telephone pole at a high rate of speed after their car had become airborne and left the road. They had driven less than a quarter mile at the time of the impact. (2)

Johnson County Commissioner R.C. McFall, who helped discover the ring when he caught Lawhon in the act of stealing a 38,000-pound county-owned back-end loader in January 1998, was equally upset. "Good God, we're in the wrong business," McFall said. "It sounds to me like the law is telling you you can get more jail time for a first-time DWI offense than stealing millions of dollars of equipment. " ……..Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Roper said anyone upset with the verdict should remember that Lawhon wasn't the only member of the theft ring. …… Without Lawhon's cooperation, defense attorney Don Carter said, authorities would not have been able to arrest William Schritter, 60, who was detained in March after returning from Costa Rica. Schritter has since entered a guilty plea to the same offense as Lawhon. ……Another individual has not been indicted and another suspected member of the ring, Lawhon's nephew, Johnny Lawhon, died last year in a car wreck. Johnny Lawhon, who lived in Arkansas, was also a witness in the Whitewater case against President Clinton. ……"

The check's existence only became public knowledge this month. …….. Henry Floyd, a former Madison Guaranty employee, has said he was expected to deliver the documents to a warehouse in 1988 but took his car to the shop to have it repaired.

McFall said the heavy loader had pushed the truck into the mud. When Lawhon tried to drive away, the truck's drive shaft broke. ……Texas officials and FBI agents from Fort Worth are continuing their investigation. At least four people are suspected to have participated in the ring. One of them has ties to Costa Rica, which has led officials to look for stolen cars there. ……. Carter said he asked Lawhon about the involvement of his nephew, Johnny Lawhon. But he said he's uncertain of Johnny Lawhon's role. "Everybody's been laughing about this Whitewater thing," McFall said. "It's crazy stuff." Johnny Lawhon found a $ 27,600 cashier's check made payable to Bill Clinton in the trunk of a 1979 or '80 Mercury Marquis at the transmission shop. ……The check was dated in 1982. It had not been endorsed by Clinton. Lawhon also found thousands of pages of rotting documents. "There was so much in the trunk that the back was weighted down," Lawhon said in November 1997. …….The Marquis had belonged to Henry Floyd, who was a clerk for Madison Guaranty, the failed savings and loan that was owned by James McDougal, a former business partner of President Clinton and his wife Hillary. McDougal was convicted of several Whitewater felonies in May 1996 along with his ex-wife, Susan, and former Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker. ……"There were cashier's checks just lying there," Lawhon said. "I come to one that has Bill Clinton's name on it.

Charles Wilbourne Miller

63, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head on November 17, 1998 in a shallow pit about 300 yards from his ranch house near Little Rock. Police found a .410 gauge shotgun near Miller's body and a Ruger .357-caliber revolver submerged in water. Investigators concluded the Ruger was the weapon used by Miller to kill himself. Yet, two rounds in the handgun's cylinder had been spent. He had long served as executive vice president and member of the board of directors for a company called Alltel and was deeply involved in his own software engineering company until the day he died. Alltel is the successor to Jackson Stephens' Systematics, the company that provided the software for the White House's "Big Brother" data base system and that was behind the administration's plan to develop the secret computer "Clipper" chip to bug every phone, fax and email transmission in America.

World Net Daily 2/10/00 Joseph Farah "….You tell me if I'm just being paranoid. An Arkansas company with ties to Mochtar Riady, the billionaire Indonesian and Chinese intelligence agent, has amassed 135 million consumer telephone numbers -- including about 20 million unlisted numbers -- to help identify and profile people who call toll-free lines to shop or make an inquiry. The company is called Acxiom Corp. of Conway, Ark. Formerly it was called Alltel, and before that Systematics. You might remember hearing about Systematics. The company was owned by Jackson Stephens, the billionaire Arkansas partner of Riady and a strong financial backer of President Clinton. Hillary Clinton, Webster Hubbell and Vincent Foster all worked on a secret National Security Agency project for Systematics while at the Rose Law Firm…… Well, darn, if the Rose Law Firm connection doesn't still exist with the company under a new name. The general counsel for Acxiom is Catherine L. Hughes, 48, a former public defender and assistant state attorney general who worked at Rose from 1983 through 1988.

World Net Daily 2/10/00 Joseph Farah "….Systematics is a name wrapped up in so many Clinton scandals it would make your head spin. The company, for instance, obtained clearance to accompany Ron Brown on foreign trade trips. In 1996, according to records from the Federal Election Commission, William Cravens, an old Clinton pal, contributed to both Republican and Democrat campaigns. In late May 1996, Cravens wrote a check to a Republican candidate for Congress using Alltel, the renamed Systematics, as his employer. Three days later, Cravens, the former CEO of Systematics, wrote a second check for a Democratic senatorial candidate, this time listing his employer as "Entergy Corp."

While On Duty - Aldo Franscoia Secret Service Agent , C-130 airplane crash, Jackson Hole WY


wordarchive.com Dan Jacobson 1/1/99 "…… On August 17, 1996, only four months after the death of Ron Brown, there was a fatal crash of yet another plane carrying associates of Bill Clinton. This time it was an Air Force C-130 transport plane that went down near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where President Clinton had been vacationing. Clinton had left by helicopter to return to the White House just hours before the crash. Besides 8 crew members, the plane was carrying a communications van, many pieces of luggage, and secret service agent Aldo Franscoia. It was on it's way to JFK international airport in New York, where Clinton was going the next morning to celebrate his 50th birthday. Only minutes after taking off, the plane flew into a mountain about nine miles east of Jackson Hole. Aldo Franscoia and all 8 crew members were killed. An Air Force investigation into the crash concluded with the statement that "crew error" was the official cause. There findings could only be a guess: "The crew failed to monitor the aircraft's position and flight path relative to high terrain ... Radar information...was not correctly interpreted." The morning after the accident, at a brief press conference at the White House before Clinton left for New York, he said that he and Hillary were "very sad and shocked" about the crash "because they worked for (him)." He also said during that brief conference that he "was told that they thought the pilot had turned around to come back to the airport." It is not known who told Clinton this, but nobody has ever been found that has thought the plane had turned around. It had not. According to the Air Force investigation, the crew never knew anything was wrong….."

Craig Roberts- from here on, as (CR)-Yeah, and the first to die of a questionable suicide afterwards. A year later he was found dead where? In a field two and a half miles west of El Reno reformatory a mile out into this field, his car was abandoned along a dirt road and there was a lot of blood in the car but hardly any blood at the scene. It turns out we found out later he was shot through the head, no gun was found, but it was a real (ruled) suicide. He also had 13 cuts and lacerations on his body on his wrists and elbows and jugular veins and they called it suicide...They wrote it off as suicide. And was he about to release a book? or... No he had gathered a lot of information and he was taking it out of town to hide it someplace in some mini- storage west of OKC that he had. We don't know if he ever managed to hide the stuff or not because he never came home. Tonia is his ex-wife at the time, she has 2 children by him and he had gone to her and asked her to be remarried because he wanted her to be covered by his insurance and his pension because he knew something might happen to him and he was real adamant about it, but we will let her tell that part and it is an obvious case of torture, murder and it was written off within minutes as suicide and it was ridiculous, but the funny thing was the Canadian County Sheriff's Office were the first ones on the scene and there she is.....Good morning, Tonia.."Well it actually started the day of the bombing, that he made some strange statement that at first, I wasn't able to put into any kind of logical order, but later on it began to make sense why he was making these comments. I got a call about 11:30 maybe 11:15 the morning of the Bombing from Presbyterian Hospital that said Terry had been injured and I needed to come down there and get him. . the strange thing was, The first statement that came out of his mouth was `Get me out of this hospital, no matter what you have to do, get me out of here.' I said OK. He was very adamant. I didn't know at the time that, I'd been told later, that he'd been threatened at the hospital. I didn't know where the source of the threatening came, but that's what I had been told later on, about a year after his death.. As soon as they loaded him into the car, he got very upset, started to cry a little bit, and said `Tonia, it's not what they're saying it is. They're not telling the truth. They're lying about what's going on down there.' I did try to press him a little bit and ask him some questions, but he didn't seem very willing to talk about it. It was just kind of a comment.

They look like any network news crew--a sound man, maybe a camerawoman and a guy toting a portable light--but they don't work for CBS or NBC. Instead they toil long hours behind the scenes, roaming from the East Room to the West Wing, waiting for Bill Clinton to arrive, shake hands and say a few words. They turn their tapes over to the White House Communications Office, which uses the videos for p.r., as favors for Administration allies, and for posterity. And now, it turns out, for investigation. Over the weekend, a government source told TIME, the White House quietly turned over dozens of videotapes made during presidential fund-raising events in 1995 and 1996 to congressional and federal investigators………. The videotapes are apparently not complete, start-to-finish records of the coffees and dinners; White House TV crews provided only partial coverage of the events. A government source said the tapes turned up only recently in the White House Communications Office in the Old Executive Office Building.

More Lies From The White House How the tapes were found and delayed
NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE
WASHINGTON -- On the afternoon of Oct. 1, Michael X. Imbroscio, 29, a lawyer in the White House counsel's office, was keystroking his way through a restricted computer database when, he says, he stumbled into an electronic cache of videotapes that he had been told did not exist…….
For months, according to interviews with central participants, administration aides had assured Senate investigators and Justice Department prosecutors that there were no videotapes of President Clinton mingling with donors at White House coffees. But here, flashing before Imbroscio's eyes was confirmation of a taped record of Clinton at a coffee with Roger Tamraz, the big Democratic contributor and international oil financier whom a national security official had warned was a shady operator……… Within days, the existence of snippets of video from 44 White House coffees escalated into a full-blown public relations disaster for two government institutions that had already suffered bad news on the campaign finance front: the White House and the Justice Department. The discovery of the tapes exposed the vulnerabilities of both institutions and set off rounds of allegations and recriminations that embarrassed Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno. ……

……On Oct. 1, Imbroscio typed into the computer database the date of the Tamraz coffee on a "photo op" index. He learned that at least a few tapes may have been recorded, and notified Breuer. Breuer said he had told Imbroscio to determine whether the tapes actually existed.
The next day, Oct. 2, Imbroscio went back to the computer, and for the first time tried the word "coffee," and came up with 49 hits.
"I was stunned," Imbroscio said.
Imbroscio then informed the White House counsel, Charles F.C. Ruff, that the tapes existed. Ruff met later that afternoon with Reno at the Justice Department for a weekly meeting but, he has acknowledged, did not tell her that tapes were found.
The timing was crucial because the next day was the deadline for Reno to decide whether there was evidence on which to base an independent counsel investigation of Clinton over the coffees……

Email to Alamo-Girl "….. The Conradi situation looks like part of the ongoing turf battle between CORONERS, who are NOT medical doctors, and MEDICAL EXAMINERS, who are. Medical examiners must complete medical school, a pathology residency (used to be 4, now 5 years), AND must complete an additional year of training in forensic pathology. A physician must pass the two-part pathology exam to be certified in pathology, and the forensic path exam in order to be board-certified in forensic pathology. Coroners, on the other hand, do not necessarily have any special training......

…... Consider this excerpt from the original FR post*: "She has caused quite a stir by trying to have all suspicious deaths investigated by medical examiners rather than coroners." THAT is as it should be -- the one with the specific training should indeed be the involved in scene investigation. It is the (well trained, honest, conscientious) medical examiner, NOT the coroner, who can better understand the scene; who knows what to look for in the autopsy; who knows what further tests to order, for example, what drug screens, what stains. It is the forensic pathologist who can correctly identify, for example, which is the exit and which is the entrance wound …….. This is not to detract from other well trained, experienced, CONSCIENTIOUS investigators. Yes, this has all the looks of a turf battle: "She has been attacked by coroners offended by her assertion that medical examiners do a better job investigating suspicious deaths. Conradi has said medical examiners are doctors trained to spot suspicious deaths while coroners only need a high school diploma to serve in their elected office."…..

Medical examiner beefs aired ARLIE PORTER; Of The Post and Courier The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC) November 13, 1997, Thursday, POST AND COURIER EDITION LEGISLATOR HEARING: Deputy medical examiners accused Charleston County Chief Medical Examiner Sandra Conradi of poor management, which they said has led to conflict with coroners across the state The office that investigates suspicious deaths in Charleston County is beset with turmoil and tension caused by Chief Medical Examiner Sandra Conradi, her deputy said Wednesday……

……. Conradi's deputy, Kim Collins, said coroners have called her directly to ask questions and lodge complaints about Conradi, whom coroners accuse of being uncooperative. "It's gotten to a point that certain counties refuse to have her do autopsies," Collins told legislators investigating complaints about Conradi. The medical examiner's office itself is tense due to disagreements between deputy medical examiners and Conradi, Collins said. These conflicts "have been going on hot and heavy for six years, but nothing has been done," former deputy medical examiner Clay Nichols said. "We have pretty much become a joke in the (medical) community." Conradi, who testified Wednesday at a trial in Colleton County, did not attend the legislators' hearing and could not be reached for comment.

…….She has been attacked by coroners offended by her assertion that medical examiners do a better job investigating suspicious deaths. Conradi has said medical examiners are doctors trained to spot suspicious deaths while coroners only need a high school diploma to serve in their elected office. Coroners have not questioned Conradi's investigative abilities, and Collins and Nichols made clear Wednesday that they highly respect Conradi's expertise. Collins said Conradi trained her and that she was embarrassed to publicly criticize her. Conradi is widely seen as the protege of Gordon Hennigar, who was instrumental in establishing the medical examiner's office in Charleston County in 1972……

……… Nichols, who was trained by Hennigar, said he too was embarrassed to criticize Conradi, and indirectly, Hennigar, due to his respect for both of them. "This is worse than fighting with my dad, but these are problems that need to be addressed," he said. Hennigar, chairman of the Medical Examiners Commission that hired Conradi, said Charleston County is fortunate to have her. Conradi is a nationally recognized expert in forensic pathology, he said. But she may have problems managing the medical examiner's office, Hennigar said. "It's difficult to be a great scientist and a great administrator at the same time."….. Hennigar emphasized the need to continue the medical examiner system, saying that investigations of suspicious deaths would otherwise be left to coroners who may be incompetent…..

……..For example, a former Charleston County coroner once ruled the cause of a man's death as "aneurysm of the semicolon," Hennigar said. At a previous meeting of legislators investigating complaints against Conradi, Charleston County Coroner Susan Chewning and Berkeley County Coroner Wade Arnette said they do not oppose the medical examiner system, but do oppose Conradi as chief medical examiner

……..Conradi and Chewning first clashed when Conradi suggested that the coroner's office serve under the medical examiner's office. Later, Charleston County Council stripped Conradi's office of its three investigators and placed them under Chewning's control. Conradi and Arnette have also clashed through the years, most notably after the 1992 death of former Santee Cooper Vice President Joe Norman. Norman died after a single gunshot wound to his chest days before his trial on bribery charges. Arnette ruled the death an accident. Conradi, who conducted the autopsy, and the investigating sheriff's deputy said it was a suicide…..Conradi has not had an opportunity to defend herself before lawmakers......."

There must be some such transcripts that may not have been turned over. Early in his first term, Clinton brought direct lines into the White House that bypassed the switchboard. There was, as I remember, a bit of a flap when people noted that could create a security problem. Some people wondered why Clinton would want to bypass the switchboard which routinely records all incoming and outgoing phone calls. The spin was that direct dialing resulted in faster connections. Now since one of the White House Communications Agency's tasks is to record all incoming and outgoing phone calls, it would seem there should have been tapes of any phone calls between Clinton, Lewinsky and Jordan. If the WHCA did not record those calls, routine sweeps to make certain no one else was tapping the lines out of the White House by the FBI and the CIA might have recorded such conversations."

I don't remember the White House announcing their installation.) I got a vivid lesson in phone security when I was a GI. I did Sigint from a listening post in Berlin, right on the East German border; a place called Rudow. This was pre-Wall, but not by much. Just on the other side of the border was a buried trunk phone line between the State HQ of East Berlin and East Germany. Iow, any and all E. German business, including Stasi stuff, went over that trunk line. In the 1950s, our guys found it and tunneled from the ops building (where I worked later) across the border only 70 yards away, and put a tap on the lines. They figured they would get two weeks of A1 intelligence. In fact, it was 18 months before the enemy trucks pulled up and started digging for the trouble. 18 months of perfect intercept! What they found was a fresh concrete wall at the tunnel entrance with good warnings to stay out. Legend has it that the tunnel is still there with a million dollars worth of equipment in it, booby-trapped so heavily that it would be batty ever to open it. One can only hope that the FBI and CIA were extremely cautious about those WH lines, as you suggest. Otherwise, you can bet the rent that the rest of the world was listening -- and probably laughing the whole while …"

After I paid the full amount ... the contractor reimbursed me the $2,000. I turned the money over to Henry to give to Clinton.'' Hamilton is dead. ``Once, after I handed Henry his latest consignment of 20 hundred-dollar bills to relay to the governor's office, he turned the bills over and over in one hand, like a magician,'' McDougal said. ``Henry grinned. `You know,' he said, `Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First had Cromwell. Clinton could profit from these examples if he crosses us.'' The alleged $2,000-a-month cash payment and other accusations ``are simply made up out of whole cloth,'' Kendall declared. McDougal wrote that Hamilton ``insisted that under-the-table payments would solidify our connections in state government.'' He said Clinton appointed his recommended candidates to state jobs, including state securities commissioner. …"

Barry Seal

Homicide - Alder Berriman (Barry) Seal (Mena, Murdered) (4)


The Wall Street Journal 4/18/96 Micah Morrison "…It's well established that self-confessed cocaine smuggler and Drug Enforcement Administration informant Barry Seal operated out of Mena, in western Arkansas. Although he was murdered 18 months before the death of the boys, reports of Mena-connected drug activities persisted for years.

Arkansas Writers' Project, Inc. 9/3/99 Mara Leveritt "...The FBI stalled, but Snyder's staff persisted. Finally, their efforts paid off -- at least partly. Two weeks ago, I received 488 pages of FBI records pertaining to Barry Seal, the cocaine smuggler who, as you know, moved his billion-dollar drug business from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to the airport at Mena, Arkansas in 1982. .....But, though he was constantly watched, Seal was never stopped. He operated from Mena, apparently unimpeded, until 1986, when he was murdered by Colombian operatives.... according to one document, the Justice Department kept tight control of the investigation into Seal's murder, "since," as an assistant attorney general explained, "this is a case with apparent national and organized crime dimensions..." But many of the pages sent were heavily blacked out. And almost 300 were missing entirely. A cover letter explained that some of these deletions had been made to protect privacy or confidentiality, or for law enforcement reasons. But this is what I found most interesting. Notes explaining several of the deletions said that they had been made under provisions of the National Security Act of 1947 and the CIA Act of 1949. So it's quite a mess, you see, these jumbled references to organized crime and national security, to Colombian drug cartels and the CIA -- all within the heavily censored file of a smuggler who found safe haven in Arkansas during the last four years of his life..."

 

Washington Weekly 2/28/00 Chapter Seven from L.D. Brown's Tell-all on Hillary and Bill "…..The Central Intelligence Agency is a different sort of people to deal with. My initial contact with them involved receiving volumes of paperwork to complete concerning everything about me and my family. When I showed Bill [Clinton] the first stack that had arrived, he seemed not at all surprised. He encouraged me to complete it as fast as I could so he could "start making some calls for me." ………. Magruder answered my house phone call and told me to come up to the room. Dan Magruder was an Ivy-league looking guy, buttoned-down, polite and articulate. He displayed his C. I. A. credentials, which I examined carefully with a sense of admiration. He already knew everything about me and said he liked my essay on 'Marxism in Central America.' We talked almost as much about him as we did about me. Magruder told me he was an 'Asia expert' and had last returned from Korea. He made sure that I knew that this job would not be a law enforcement position as I was used to. He knew Bill and referred to him casually as 'the Guv.' Magruder was most interested in my Drug Enforcement Administration schooling and law enforcement experience in the narcotics field. ……The last words Magruder would ever say to me were that I would be called by someone later on what to do and when to do it. Magruder paid me in cash and as I left he assured me, "I think you'll do fine." …..

Washington Weekly 2/28/00 Chapter Seven from L.D. Brown's Tell-all on Hillary and Bill "…..Barry Seal was crazy man. He was also everything that Dan Magruder was not. Happy-go-lucky, irreverent and loud, Seal telephoned me and told me that he was the man I was told would call me. It was time to meet and he chose a hangout that I was readily familiar with. It was the mid-1980s and with the decadence of that time and the free-flowing cocaine, Cajun's Wharf was a hangout for the bond daddies such as Lasater and company…."

Washington Weekly 2/28/00 Chapter Seven from L.D. Brown's Tell-all on Hillary and Bill "…..The first words out of Seal's mouth, "How's the Guv?" reminded me of Magruder's apparent familiarity with Bill. An overweight, jovial, almost slap-happy man as my next contact with C. I. A. was not exactly what I expected. Seal, too, knew everything about me. He focused on my D. E. A. training as Magruder had done in Dallas. He knew of my meeting with Magruder and declared, "I'm the man they told you would call."…... Mena, Arkansas is a tiny town near the Oklahoma border in far western Arkansas. I didn't know why Seal wanted to meet me in such a far away place for an out-of-the-country trip. I had expected to leave from Little Rock as Seal had led me to believe that he had flown an airplane into the Little Rock airport for our meeting. He told me to be at Mena before dawn which meant I had to leave my house in Little Rock around three-o'clock in the morning. I had told Bill only that I was being tried out on an assignment. "Don't worry about it," was his advice that I will never forget. "You can handle it," were his parting words……"

Washington Weekly 2/28/00 Chapter Seven from L.D. Brown's Tell-all on Hillary and Bill "…..Seal kept his word and telephoned me for a meeting. We actually had at least two more. One occurred at the Cajun's Wharf bar with another curiously at Charlie Trie's restaurant near the state capitol. On one of the occasions the Secretary of State in Arkansas at the time, Bill McCuen, remembered that I had introduced Seal to him at Cajun's Wharf. Seal was more forthcoming with information now and for whatever reason, increased trust or confidence in me, proceeded to share with me why we had made the flight, and that we would make another. Guns, more specifically U. S. made M-16s were in the crate covered by the pallet, according to Seal. He even asked me if I wanted one, which at the time I thought was crazy. They were going to the Contras, the rebels fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua (1). All of a sudden the essay on 'Marxism in Central America' Bill had suggested for my C. I. A. application made sense. ……"

Mara Leveritt WebSite 5/19/00 "…….….I amended my request, specifying that I wanted files on Rich Mountain Aviation and Adler Berriman Seal. In 1997, I received approximately 34 pages of files pertaining to Rich Mountain Aviation. Those pages were interesting on several counts. First, chunks of them were blacked out. Second, they revealed that RMA, in rural Arkansas, was the subject of a fraud investigation by the Department of Defense relating to aircraft maintenance contracts on islands in the South Pacific. Third, the records revealed that Seal's activities at Mena were the subject of "extensive Bureau investigation," beginning in October, 1983. In one memo, the immunity he received for his narcotics trafficking after his appearance before a Senate House Subcommittee was referred to as "Seal's 'judicial blessing.'"......,,

…….By now three years had passed since my Mena request was filed. As I approached my publisher's deadline for completing THE BOYS ON THE TRACKS, Snyder's office and I continued to press the FBI to release its files on Seal. Just as the book was going into publication, I received a box containing 488 pages of what the FBI said was a 721-page file on Seal. Over the next several weeks, other pages trickled in. In all of them, most names were blacked out, making the related information worthless. The explanation given was that the deletions were to protect the privacy of those involved. Of greater concern to me were deletions--sometimes of several pages--for reasons attributed to the needs of national security or of the CIA. As I mentioned, I am appealing for release of all information withheld for these two reasons……

…….My rationale is simple. It is summed up most succinctly in a memo sent from the FBI's New Orleans office in August 1983, on the eve of his move to Arkansas. The special agent in charge wrote: "Seal controls an international smuggling organization which is extremely well organized and extensive." A memo dated the following October described Seal as "a documented major narcotics trafficker...." In light of the remarkable "judicial blessing" this international narcotics trafficker received, it is not unreasonable for the American public to seek the release of all records relating to him. What is unreasonable is for the Department of Justice to try to withhold those records, based on claims that such information might be harmful to national security or to the CIA……"

Eric Henderson


Homicide - Eric L. Henderson (financial advisor to Ron Brown, shot while riding bicycle) (4) Source

Worldnetdaily.com 9/24/98 "…For instance, not one version of the "body count" lists that I have seen included the name of Eric L. Henderson. Yet, everything about his remarkable death cries out for examination. On Feb. 25, 1997, he was shot to death while riding his bicycle in Northeast Washington, D.C. Because he didn't have identification on him, he initially was listed as a John Doe. And because the area where he died was known as an open air drug market, those who lived near it assumed that the victim was just another loser in a random dope deal gone bad. A few weeks later, a suspect in the shooting was arrested. He was 15 years old, a chubby kid who stood 5 feet 5 and weighed 200 pounds. Because he was a juvenile, his trial, which ended in a conviction, was a confidential matter. Eric L. Henderson was 33 when he was killed. He was a highly regarded lawyer and investment banker, a graduate of Haverford College in Pennsylvania and Columbia University School of Law in New York…. He was a young man of extraordinary achievements, which included serving as -- are you ready for this? -- a financial adviser not only to the South African government under Nelson Mandela but also to the late Commerce Secretary Ron Brown….. They remember him as a certified financial genius. He'd helped put together the debt restructuring plan that saved Parks Sausage, a black-owned company in Baltimore. He had distinguished himself as a financial adviser to the United States Agency for International Development and the notorious U.S. Commerce Department. He also had worked as an investment banking associate at Smith Barney and PaineWebber. In 1995, he started the Onyx Group, an investment banking firm in Washington. He told friends that his goal in life was to create employment opportunities for struggling young black males. …..Perhaps Henderson was killed in a random drug deal on the seedy streets of Washington. Perhaps he was leading a double life, as police investigators suggest. Or maybe, just maybe, he knew too much. It should not go unnoticed that Henderson was a financial adviser to Ron Brown, the Commerce secretary who, until his still mysterious death in a plane crash in Croatia, was under investigation and about to be indicted for some of his financial creativity. It's also worth noting that a close confidante to Brown, Nolanda Hill, has reported that Brown had confronted Clinton just before his trip -- telling him, "I won't go down alone." …"

Aug 1997 Curries Brother severely beaten and hospitalized; The next day-Currie testifies in campaign finance hearing before senate.<P>

The Oreganian 1/28/98 ".Like other proceedings of the grand jury, Currie's testimony was sealed. .... Currie described her job in detail in August during a deposition taken by Senate investigators probing the campaign finance scandal. Athough White House lawyers advised her to postpone the session because her brother, Theodore Williams, had been severely beaten and hospitalized the night before [in August], Currie sat through the five-hour grilling without complaint. ..... "

Dec 15 1997 Clinton gets request from Jones team for Lewinski related documents; Currie's brother killed in auto accident.

Richmond Times Dispatch 12/17/97 "A New York motorist survived a plunge down an embankment after his vehicle hit a truck on Interstate 95 in Hanover County on Monday, but he was killed when he was struck by another truck after he climbed the embankment. Theodore R. Williams, 52, of Fort Washington was traveling south about 11 a.m. when his vehicle hit a truck and plunged down the embankment just south of state Route 674, state police said. After the crash, Williams climbed up the embankment and stepped onto the roadway where he was hit by the second truck."

Dec 17 2-3am-Clinton tells Lewinski of Currie's brother's death and tells her she is now a witness in Jones matter.

Starr Report SectionXI subsection F: On December 15, 1997, Paula Jones's lawyers served President Clinton with her second set of document requests by overnight mail. These requests asked the President to "produce documents that related to communications between the President and Monica Lewisky" [sic]. This was the first Paula Jones discovery request to refer to Monica Lewinsky by name. Ms. Lewinsky testified that in the early-morning hours of December 17, at roughly 2:00 or 2:30 a.m., she received a call from the President. The call lasted about half an hour. The President gave Ms. Lewinsky two items of news: Ms. Currie's brother had died in a car accident, and Ms. Lewinsky's name had appeared on the witness list in the Jones case. According to Ms. Lewinsky, the President said "it broke his heart" to see her name on the witness list. The President told her that she would not necessarily be subpoenaed; if she were, he "suggested she could sign an affidavit to try to satisfy [Ms. Jones's] inquiry and not be deposed." The President told Ms. Lewinsky to contact Ms. Currie in the event she were subpoenaed. He also reviewed one of their established cover stories. He told Ms. Lewinsky that she "should say she visited the [White House] to see Ms. Currie and, on occasion when working at the [White House], she brought him letters when no one else was around." The President's advice "was . . . instantly familiar to [Ms. Lewinsky]." She testified that the President's use of this "misleading" story amounted to a continuation of their pre-existing pattern. Later in the conversation, according to Ms. Lewinsky, the President said he would try to get Ms. Currie to come in over the weekend so that Ms. Lewinsky could visit and he could give her several Christmas presents. Ms. Lewinsky replied that, since Ms. Currie's brother had just died, perhaps they should "let Betty be."

9/12/96 Dornan's comments re Shelly Kelly--Congressional Record "Here is a document, a political document. Looks like a Federal document, but it is not. I do not even know the group that sent it out, but it says `Murder in the First Degree: Interim Report on the Death of commerce Secretary Ron Brown and 34 Other citizens'. And in the first paragraph, and I am going to check this, as the chairman of an Armed Services subcommittee and Committee on National Security, it says all 35 people were dead at the crash except for a stewardess. That is not the right title. They are sergeant attendants. Shelly Kelly, who was riding in the tail, sustained only minor cuts and bruises; that she was well enough to get out as sole survivor of the 35 on the plane; that she climbed on the helicopter itself, it says here. This goes on for 37 pages. And that she died on the helicopter mysteriously. I flew four times with Sergeant Shelly Kelly. Her husband is an Air Force sergeant. Two children. And in the PX, where we went to get some supplies, some toiletries for a trip into Bosnia with Shelly Kelly on this very same airplane, she was in the line ahead of me. Intelligent, strikingly professional, good looking lady sergeant. And I said why are you buying those wine bottles; is my crew partying tonight? Oh, no. I always bring home two wine bottles from everywhere I go as air mobility command member, Congressman. And she said my husband does the same. He is up at Ramstein. And when I get home, we have one bottle of wine at dinner, and then we save the other one. We have quite a collection to give to our children. Well, Shelly Kelly is in heaven now, Mr. Speaker, and her husband is left with that wine bottle collection from all around the world. These two excellent servants of the people in the Air Mobility Command. And I am going to have to find out if there is any truth that she survived that crash, less than a month after CODEL members, the gentleman from Alabama, Sonny Callahan, the gentleman from Arizona, Bob Stump, myself, and four or five other Members flew four times on that aircraft, from Aviano to Zagreb to Tuzla and other flights in that area just March of this year." …"

(April 3, 1996) - letter to Congress James W Nugent, Pres The Wall Street Underground – "…Crash site, 7:20 P.M.: Four hours and 20 minutes after the crash, the first Croatian Special Forces search party arrives on the scene and finds only Ms. Kelly surviving. They call for a helicopter to evacuate her to the hospital. When it arrives, she is able to get aboard without assistance from the medics. But Kelly never completes the short hop. She dies enroute. According to multiple reports given to journalist/editor Joe L. Jordan, an autopsy later reveals a neat three-inch incision over her main femoral artery. It also shows that the incision came at least three hours afterall her other cuts and bruises…. Further autopsies will probably not happen. At this writing, Clinton has ordered the cremation of all victims. It's hard to perform autopsies on ashes….."

Accident - Mohammed Samir Ferrat, TWA 800 Plane Crash (Brown connections, initial suspect) – see Ron Brown Plane Crash section (4) Source

5/27/98 AP Zurich The Guardian (London) pg 19 Freepers Wallaby & icwhatudo ".POLICE are investigating the possibility that insurance fraud by a Swiss resident listed among the 230 people killed in the TWA Flight 800 explosion might have been behind the disaster, Swiss television reported last night. Swiss authorities have been investigating Algerian-born Mohammmed Samir Ferrat, for 18 months, the report said. ..A Geneva lawyer, Gerald Page, alleged in an interview for the Swiss television report that Ferrat took out life insurance policies worth several million Swiss francs in the weeks before the plane crashed in July 1996, half an hour after taking off from New York…. On August 19, a month after the crash, the local medical examiner in Suffolk County - in whose jurisdiction the disaster occurred - declared that Mohammed Ferrat had been positively identified as a dead passenger from TWA Flight 800. US investigators counted him out as a suspect early.. The report showed footage of the late US commerce secretary, Ron Brown, at the Washington signing with Ferrat of a pounds 62.5 million contract between Sofin and the US construction firm Chatwick Inc, which was to build residences in the Ivory Coast. Chatwick spent pounds 2.5 million on the project before halting it, the television said.." Background from icwhatudo ".According to a CNN international report, Mohamed Samir Ferrat, an Algerian business associate of Secretary Brown, who was scheduled to accompany Brown on the Bosnian trip but withdrew at the last moment for reasons still unclear, died July 17, on the ill fated TWA Flight 800. Ferrat was initially treated by the FBI as a suspected terrorist in the TWA Flight 800 explosion because he was the sole passenger on the flight roster listed only by last name. The FBI, within hours of beginning their investigation of Ferrat, oddly withdrew, telling the New York Times that "Ferrat was not at all the kind of person to take a bomb on a plane. Nor was he a likely target of a bomb plot."

 

Jan Kopold


Accident - Jan Kopold, accidental fall in Turkey in 1970 (4) Source

World Net Daily 4/30/99 Joel A. Ruth ".... On December 19, 1969, Bill Clinton had boarded an Aeroflot flight from London for the USSR to Moscow, the center of world atheism and the capital of the Soviet-Marxist state. William Jefferson Clinton's pilgrimage to the Soviet Union was the climax of a busy fall semester as a "Rhodes Scholar" at Oxford. It should perhaps be mentioned to those impressed by such presumed status that Rhodes Scholarships are granted to individuals passing ideological muster whose sentiments during the interview process are reflective of acceptable left-wing views to the selection committees, and not because of good grades..... "

"…While Bill Clinton has never explained who paid for his trip to Moscow, he was accompanied by a friend and fellow Oxford student, Czech Jan Kopold. They were to attend a meeting of the War Moratorium Committee to be held January 2, 1970. Upon arrival, Clinton did not check into a youth hostel, but rather stayed at the Hotel National, the most exclusive and expensive one in Moscow of that time -- a ritzy place usually reserved for foreign ambassadors and high-level Communist Party apparatchiks…. Clinton has also never accounted for the 11 days spent in Moscow before the actual meeting of the War Moratorium and has never revealed who paid his expenses or what he did or who he met with during that time....."

"…Even more telling was Clinton's January 4 return trip from Moscow on another Aeroflot jet. The flight terminated in Prague, then the capital of the Czechoslovakian Soviet Socialist Republic (CSSR). There, Clinton was a guest of Jan Kopold's father, Bedrich Kopold and Jan's maternal grandmother Maria Svermova, who was the original founder of the Czech Communist Party in the 1930s...... The entire Kopold clan was a significant part of the ruling Communist party elite and was responsible for those murders and deportations either by the act or as formulators of policy.. ....Years later, when Clinton was President, he again flew to Moscow, this time on Air Force One, to meet Boris Yeltsin. Then, on his return flight he had the plane stop in Prague, where, besides playing the saxophone -- important stuff -- he went to visit the parents of his Oxford friend Jan Kopold. By then, Maria Svermova had died of old age. As for Jan Kopold, he had been killed earlier in an "accidental fall" in Turkey in 1970, becoming perhaps the first of a long string of former Clinton friends and associates to meet an untimely end. ...."

CBN News 7/29/98 Gary Lane "… But what caused Dr. Malak to arrive at such an outrageous determination of death [Henry and Ives]? … Dateline NBC and The Los Angeles Times have suggested a motive. They've documented Fahmy Malak's role in clearing Bill Clinton's mother, the late Virginia Kelley, of wrongdoing in the negligent death of a teenage girl at Ouachita Memorial Hospital in 1981. The Los Angeles Times reported that Dr. Malak's ruling helped Clinton's mother avoid scrutiny in the death of patient Susie Deer. The Times quoted the Polaski County coroner as saying there was a lot of speculation that "Malak's ruling in favor of Clinton's mother was a factor" in the governor's decision to retain him as state medical examiner. Then-Governor Clinton said he resented any implications of a connection, and the governor's office proceeded to shut down further investigation of the train deaths. Dr. Malak was eventually removed as state medical examiner, but was given a job as a $70,000 per year consultant to the Arkansas Department of Health. Regardless, a grand jury determined that Kevin Ives and Don Henry had been murdered. But why? Who would want to kill two teens who were just out "deer spotting" on that fateful August night? . "

Proposed additions:

Ricky Ray Rector

Village Voice Nat Hentoff 1998 "…And I expect history will not forget how Clinton--in trouble during the 1992 New Hampshire primary for lying about the draft and Gennifer Flowers--sped back to Little Rock to preside over the execution of Ricky Ray Rector. The prisoner was so brain damaged that he had no sense of the difference between today or tomorrow or last year. Rector was accustomed to placing his dessert in a corner of the cell to be eaten just before he went to sleep. After he had been led to his execution, guards found his dessert in its usual place, waiting to be eaten. Rector had no idea what being executed meant. But Clinton wanted him dead during the primaries, to show how tough he was on crime. It was Clinton, moreover, who signed an anticrime bill into law naming over 60 offenses as worthy of the death penalty…."

The New York Times 1998 Lexington Herald-Leader "…Bill Clinton flew back to Arkansas in the midst of his 1992 presidential campaign to approve the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a man so brain-damaged that he put aside the dessert of his last meal for later…."

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 2/20/00 "……At his press conference Wednesday, the president praised the governor of Illinois for declaring a moratorium on the death penalty. Illinois' governor "did the right thing," said Bill Clinton, after DNA tests had shown that a disturbing number of inmates on that state's Death Row shouldn't be. It was a courageous decision on the governor's part, said the president. As courageous a decision as Bill Clinton's returning to Arkansas just before the New Hampshire primary in 1992 to preside over the execution of Rickey Ray Rector? That was the name of the effectively self-lobotomized killer who had put a bullet in his own brain after murdering a couple of innocent people in Conway, including a veteran policeman. It was all part of a violent spree that doesn't make sense to this day. One story has it that the condemned man asked the guards to save his dessert for him when he went off to be executed--so he could enjoy it afterward. What a death watch that was, for Rickey Ray Rector's was a more than ordinarily difficult execution. The team assigned to carry it out had a hard time finding a suitable vein for the fatal dose, although a gentle Rickey Ray, always obliging after he had maimed his mind, did his best to help. By refusing to spare this obviously deranged, brain-damaged vestige of the killer, Governor and Candidate Clinton showed how tough on crime he could be--just in time for the vote in New Hampshire. Now, eight years and two presidential terms later, no one at this press conference asks him if, in retrospect, he would say he did the right thing. His part in that grisly episode made our flesh crawl at the time, and it still does. Now he talks about what a fine and courageous thing it is to suspend the death penalty--in Illinois……."

 

Lt Colonel Mark Cwick

NewsMax.com 8/22/99 "…Lt. Colonel Mark Cwick, a Marine Corp helicopter pilot who served President Bill Clinton, died this past week in what appears to have been a car accident. Cwick, 41, was pronounced dead Friday at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia. On Thursday night, Colonel Cwick suffered fatal injuries when driving to his home. Police told the Associated Press that "a car [Cwick] was trying to pass moved in front of him, and to avoid it, he swerved off the road into an embankment and hit some trees." Colonel Cwick was no ordinary person. As a member of the elite Marine Corps HMX-1 unit, he was responsible for ferrying the President and other high-ranking officials around the Washington area. Apparently, Colonel Cwick has also fallen victim to the Clinton Curse. It has become undeniable that an unusual number of people close to Bill Clinton have died in accidental, violent and often suspicious deaths. Within Cwick’s own elite HMX-1 Unit, two other strange deaths are known to have occurred. This past April, Major Marc Hohle, who had been a pilot for Bill Clinton during the first year of Clinton's first term, died in a helicopter crash in Okinawa. Three others also died in the crash. In March of this year, just a month before Hohle’s untimely death, another member of HMX-1 unit died. Marine Cpl. Eric S. Fox, a helicopter crewman, was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head. Police authorities said Fox's body was found near a school yard in West Virginia…."

Washington Post 8/21/99 "….A member of the elite Marine Corps helicopter unit that serves President Clinton and other Washington dignitaries died yesterday morning of massive injuries suffered during a single-car accident in Stafford County. Lt. Col. Mark Cwick, 41, was pronounced dead yesterday at 6:05 a.m. at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, state police said. Cwick was critically injured…."

 

The Village Voice 9/7/99 James Ridgeway "…There's no question an unusually high number of people around the president- according to some lists as many as 100- have died accidental, violent, and at least superficially suspicious deaths. The latest occurred the week before last when Lieutenant Colonel Mark Cwick, a Marine Corps helicopter pilot who was a member of the unit that ferried the president and other high-ranking officials around the Washington area, died when his car swerved off the road to avoid a collision with an auto that had just passed him. Cwick, 41, was pronounced dead on August 20 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Within Cwick's elite Marines unit, two other strange deaths are known to have occurred. In April, Major Marc Hohle, who had been a pilot for Clinton in the first year of his first term as president, died in a helicopter crash on Okinawa. In March, another member of the special unit, Corporal Eric S. Fox, a helicopter crewman, was found dead of a gunshot wound to his head. Fox's body was found near a West Virginia schoolyard after his auto crashed. His death was ruled a suicide, but no explanation was given. …."

wordarchive.com Dan Jacobson 1/1/99 "……The first [crash this year related to Clinton] occurred on April 24, 1999. A CH-53E U.S. Marine helicopter crashed into the Pacific off Okinawa during a training exercise. Major Marc L. Hohle was among the four crew members killed. He had flown Bill Clinton during Clinton's first term in office.

A second aviation mishap this year occurred May 8, 1999, when Jim Inhofe, a U.S. Senator from Oklahoma, made an emergency landing in his 1979 Grumman Tiger. He was flying alone on his way to meet with Bill Clinton in storm-ravaged Oklahoma City. Inhofe had been in the air about ten minutes when the propeller dropped off his plane. He glided the tail-heavy plane for eight miles and made a perilous, high-speed landing in the grass at a small municipal airport. He suffered no injury, but his plane was damaged. Inhofe, who has been one of Clinton's biggest adversaries in the Senate, said he was suspicious about the incident, and his press secretary said Inhofe's office had requested the FBI to investigate because "propellers don't just fly off airplanes every day." Nicole Lupino, the NTSB official in charge of the investigation into the incident, said that losing a propeller in flight is extremely rare. There has not yet been a final report on the mishap.

The third incident this year was the crash that killed John F. Kennedy Jr. His plane went down in July in apparently poor weather on his way to a wedding in Martha's Vineyard. After the death of JFK Jr., Bill Clinton reminisced about the tour of the White House he had given him the year before. As a law student, JFK Jr. worked in the Los Angeles office of Clinton's former adviser, Mickey Kantor. It was there Clinton said he met Kennedy. In 1995, Clinton's re-election campaign repeatedly approached him with an offer to join them, but Kennedy wasn't interested.

St. Petersburg Times 9/3/98 Pg. 11A "...RAY WALSH, 41, a longtime firefighter who briefed Vice President Al Gore and shared a stage with President Clinton when they toured fire-ravaged Volusia County this summer, died Friday in DeLand. He died in his sleep of unknown causes, said Elizabeth Glasgow, a spokeswoman for the Volusia County fire services..."

 

Steve Leung

FS Communications, Inc. 1/29/2000 Vince Ferrer "….Dr. Steve Leung, a successful and well-respected entrepreneur and founder of several Silicon Valley companies, lies near death in a Hong Kong hospital, where he was transferred after suffering a severe beating in Beijing, China. Dr. Leung, who was in Beijing at the invitation of the Chinese government to attend the opening of the ChinaEcom.com conference on January 18, left the conference at 5:30 p.m. to go shopping. When he did not appear at a meeting later in the evening, his colleagues searched for him and found him at the Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) hospital, in a coma and on a life support system. According to the doctors, he had been badly beaten on the head and body, resulting in major brain swelling and extensive brain stem damage. None of Dr. Leung's possessions were missing, including a significant amount of money, his watch and his passport....``We're very concerned that nothing seems to be getting done to solve this, and are suspicious of the circumstances surrounding it, particularly the fact that it was obviously not a robbery attempt,'' said a family spokesperson. ``Allegedly, Steve was originally found at a karaoke bar near a tourist shopping area. But Steve doesn't drink, and doesn't frequent bars, especially karaoke bars. We'd like to know what really happened and who is responsible, and have those people brought to justice. So far, though, we haven't had any satisfactory exchanges with local Chinese authorities, and don't know what, if anything, is being done. The police will not give us a copy of their report, and the PUMC refused to release Steve's medical records so we could give them to the doctors in Hong Kong, even after we had the U.S. Consulate in Beijing ask for them. ..."

 

John Arthur Paisley

http://weberman.com/htdocs/25/25-31.htm
"…John Arthur Paisley was a former CIA official who worked for the Agency on a contractual basis, who, according to Tad Szulc, was involved with Yuri Nosenko. The two men became friends, and John Arthur Paisley frequently visited Yuri Nosenko. Inquiry Magazine reported: "Mary Ann Paisley thinks her husband's death may be related to Yuri Nosenko...At the request of Senator Birch Bayh of Indiana, the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the FBI began a counter-intelligence analysis of the Paisley case...the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Stansfield Turner says Yuri Nosenko has 'no recollection of ever meeting Paisley.'" Author Jim Hougan cited a letter Mrs. Paisley wrote to Stansfield Turner, in which she mentioned that she had worked for Kathrine Hart [the wife of John L. Hart] when she was in the CIA. ANGLETON told Look Magazine, "To my knowledge Paisley was never involved in the clandestine side. I have doubts that he knew Yuri Nosenko." [cited in Inquiry 11.15.79] Joe Trento and William R. Corson reported John Arthur Paisley worked with Bruce Solie….

John Arthur Paisley was sailing on the Chesapeake Bay on September 23, 1978. In his possession was a briefcase of Secret documents that dealt with the Soviets. The next day John Arthur Paisley was found in the bay, with two diver's belts weighing a total of 38 pounds strapped to his upper abdomen. The autopsy report stated the cause of death was a "Gunshot wound, penetrating head, close contact range. Entrance in left occipital parietal region with powder deposition within wound and on skull. Crania-cerebral injury. Missile recovered, large caliber, deformed, jacketed, lead. Trajectory: left to right (cannot be further evaluated)."

….The gun was never recovered. Was the death of John Arthur Paisley a suicide or a murder? Had John Arthur Paisley put on the weight belts, leaned over the edge of the boat, shot himself, then fallen overboard with his gun? The Maryland County Coroner concluded: "John Paisley, a 55 year old white male showing advanced decomposition changes, died of a penetrating gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death is undetermined. Signed Russell S. Fisher, M.D., Chief Medical Examiner." The boat belonging to John Arthur Paisley was found by Maryland Park Rangers. The CIA was first on board and recovered the Secret documents. Why had John Arthur Paisley taken these documents with him if he intended to kill himself?....."

Lisa Pease 11-12/95 Probe Magazine "... Paisley was a high ranking CIA officer with nearly unprecedented freedom within the Agency. Officially reported at the time of his death to be "a low-level analyst," insiders report he was a high-level counterintelligence operative. Tad Szulc once reported that Paisley was one of Angleton's recruits, but Angleton vehemently and repeatedly denied ever having met Paisley. In 1976, Paisley was the executive director of "Team B". At the time of Watergate, Paisley was the liaison between the Office of Security and the infamous Nixon White House "Plumbers." According to Hougan's sources, Paisley had been approached at one point by the KGB, reported this to CIA, and was told to work with the Soviets as a double agent, feeding them disinformation and reporting back to the CIA. Paisley had extensive radio broadcasting equipment on his boat and frequently took to sea for long trips alone. What he did there we can only speculate about.

Paisley was also involved with an individual well known to students of the JFK assassination: Yuri Nosenko. Paisley's death came on the heels of CIA officer John Hart's testimony championing Nosenko and his bona fides to the House Select Committee on Assassinations. In the words of his wife, Paisley played a role in the "indescribable debriefing" of Nosenko.

The facts of Paisley's death are curious. Paisley was found floating in Chesapeake Bay a few days after he had mysteriously disappeared. He had last been seen taking his boat out to sea. His last radio call to a friend had been calm, with no hint of anything sinister to come. The County Coroner who conducted the autopsy, Dr. George Weems, found that Paisley's death had been caused by a gunshot wound to the head, behind the left ear. Paisley was right-handed, which makes suicide extremely implausible. In addition, Dr. Weems told reporters that the body had marks on the neck which seemed to indicate a rope had been around it or the neck had been squeezed in some other fashion. The body was also weighted with two straps of diving belts. As one investigator into the case pointed out, shooting oneself and putting on the diving belts is a case of serious overkill, pardon the expression. No evidence of blood, brain tissue or cartridges from a gun were found on the boat, indicating that the gun may have been shot at a different location and the body dumped from there into the sea. To make matters even more muddied, the body was four inches too short to be Paisley, was devoid of features with which he could be positively identified, and his wife was convinced that the body found was not that of her husband's. Incredibly, Dr. Russell Fisher, the Clark Panelist, ruled the death a suicide....."

Partisan Over a year ago - Fall of 1998 (Glass interviews McNulty) Freeper Ada Coddington 9/29/99 "

http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a37f23d746afd.htm

"…. GLASS: Well, what the hell is going on?
McNULTY: …… But likewise I’m sure that if a reporter from the New York Times asked the current director of the CIA was Colby involved in bringing authoritative information to us in order to expose the FBI – He’d say "I have no idea." And he might be right. But people died. Mr. Colby if indeed he died as a result of his involvement with us and not for some other reason is not the only individual who died during the process of the making of this film.
GLASS: Who else died?
McNULTY: There’s a gentleman by the name of Eddie Pack who supplied us with footage in the early stages of my investigation. He died a very mysterious death from exposure to a rather large burst of microwave energy, which dealt him a very serious blow called cancer. Microwave energy can be used to erase videotapes from long distances, which is what happened in this circumstance. It appears that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Eddie had a habit of intercepting downlink material off of satellites. He came up with some very unusual videotape that was made originally by television networks regarding the events at Waco. Never saw the light of day on the air.
GLASS: How old was Eddie when he died?
McNULTY: Oh gosh, I’m not sure. I think he was in his mid fifties, early fifties. He wound up receiving very serious radiation burns in his esophagus and his throat as a result of his exposure to this microwave energy. They ulcerated and he couldn’t eat. Over a period of time something less than 12 months the ulcers became cancerous. What really got him was the fact that he had been so irradiated that he actually developed cancer of the bone and it spread rapidly throughout his body and in a matter of days he was gone.

There were three others men also killed. Actually four but in two separate instances.
One was an "accident" that involved three of his friends that he was supposed to have been with.
He had a musical repair business back in North Carolina. He used to repair musical instruments for all of the school districts in the three-state area. He was a musician – a very accomplished musician and used to play back-up in Nashville for a number of well-known recording artists – country western. He and his friends, his fellow musicians used to go to these recording sessions as back-up studio musicians. On the evening of January 14, 1994, the four of them were supposed to go to a performance. He got a call and went to another gig. These other three gentlemen, one or two of which had been involved in surreptitious activity in support of what we were trying to do in terms of getting videotapes, went to the original performance.

They had been followed and all kinds of strange stuff. The three of them were travelling in a van on U.S. Highway 221, which ran out of gas on a causeway over a lake in North Carolina. They were hit and struck by a car – a plain vanilla sedan with two gentlemen in it. The accident was witnessed by this woman who stopped and hollered at these two men who had exited their vehicle to inspect what had happened to these men now lying on the ground after having been struck by them. She advised them that she would go to the end of the causeway over the lake they were on and call an ambulance. When she came back the plain vanilla car was gone. The two individuals in the car were gone and the three individuals that were laying on the pavement were now in several pieces strung along the highway having been run over multiple times. The local sheriff did not investigate.

GLASS: What are the names of these people?
McNULTY: Reverend Roger Howard, his 17-year-old son, Manual Howard and James Ray Dobbins.

There was another individual who was helping Eddie financially. Government agents had told the school districts that Eddie was servicing that he was some sort of crazy right wing militia nut and that they shouldn’t do business with him. They said that he was yelling and screaming and writing letters off to Mr. Clinton and Miss Reno about what he had seen and was creating quite a stir. As a result of this Eddie’s business suffered dramatically. Eddie’s son was a police officer and had his police car searched ostensibly for videotapes by federal agents. Eddie’s house had been surreptitiously visited on numerous occasions. On one of those occasions the latest series of videotapes he had made off of the downlink feed from the satellite dish had been erased. They had been reduced to nothing but white noise, stacked up in a pyramid in front of his television and the front door left open. A little calling card if you will. Eddie’s house and car had been the targets of drive-by shootings.

When things had reached rock bottom for Eddie this one man came to his aid financially. He was helping him survive. He was a truck driver who owned a trucking business and he died in a one-vehicle accident one day in clear weather in a rollover of mysterious origins. So people have died in the process of getting all of this done.

GLASS: Now that the tape is out and you’ve distributed copies numbering in the thousands, you’re probably safer now than you were before because if they killed you now – it would just sort of –
McNULTY: It wouldn’t do them any good
GLASS: Right. It would just make the tape a hotter commodity.
McNULTY: I’m not volunteering for that duty, mind you. My dad always taught me that if you are going to dance with the devil you do it in the sunshine so the boogieman can’t get you in the shadows.
GLASS: My point being that whether the death threats made against you were real or if they wanted to kill you or whatever — the point is that if they killed you now – after the fact it would only add more credibility to the message of the film.

McNULTY : And likewise it wasn’t just me. OK? Bill Gazeki and I had an interesting episode in Waco. We were standing out in front of what is called the "Magbag" which is a location where –
GLASS: It was a garage, wasn’t it?
McNULTY: It was a garage where they repaired autos in addition to the many businesses that they had. They had a gun-dealing business, they had a rock and roll band, and they had a car restoration business. And the Magbag was the place where they did the car restoration. We were standing – gosh this was a few years ago – out in front of the Magbag doing what’s called "B roll" where you just film scenery and scenes and settings for fill-in in the film. And this plain vanilla sedan of late make with two Ivy League groomed gentlemen went whizzing by us. We were standing by the side of the road with a big Beta cam camera with a big tripod, etc. and they must have been going 65 or 70 miles per hour down this country road. They got down to the end of the Y intersection and did a high speed U turn, like you see in any cop movie.

GLASS: Steve McQueen –Bullet. McNULTY: Yea. Steve McQueen Bullet kind of stuff. And came hauling back to where we were standing. They pulled up even with us so we couldn’t see the license plates front or back and stepped out of the car and proceeded to ask us if we were making a movie. They introduced themselves as a local and his friend who was a tourist. We asked the "tourist" what he did and he said that he was some sort of a biochemist who had a lot of knowledge about things like methalyne chloride, which was the carrier ingredient of the CS gas at Waco. And they began to tell us more about our movie than we ourselves knew. And they never identified themselves beyond being a tourist and a local businessman and they began getting really irritated with us and telling us that in threatening tones. They started yelling that we couldn’t make a movie on this subject because we didn’t know what we were talking about, that we didn’t really know what happened. And I’m wondering who are you to tell us that we don’t know? What do you know? Who are you?

So we decided when the one gentleman who was the biochemist – when the veins started to bulge out of his neck and his face started to turn red and he started yelling and screaming that maybe it was a good time to leave. So we packed our gear, threw it in the back of the car and pardoned ourselves with the explanation that we had other things to do and so long. As the director got into the car he yelled back over his shoulder "And don’t forget get our names right in the reports." They didn’t take that kindly. So we left.

Two days later we were at the Dallas airport 100 miles away leaving for Boston and here come these same two individuals walking down the thoroughfare just as we’re starting to board. And they make like they don’t see us and go over and stand in this food line a little further down the concourse. As we boarded our aircraft I went through the gate and peeked around the corner and I saw that they had left the food line with no food in their hands and started walking over to the gate. Who were these guys? Well, anybody that can read between the lines could say that they were probably FBI agents trying to put a little pressure on us not to do what we were doing. That kind of thing.

And so Gazeki and I had those occasions. Mr. Gifford, the executive producer had some problems last year with state taxes. I’ve had my problems with the IRS and Mr. Gazeki was told that he was being audited just a couple of weeks ago. Is the government putting pressure on us? I find it curious that all three of us could be having problems with the tax collectors right at a time when we produce and release a film critical of the government. The odds of all three of us having problems with taxes at the same time are not very likely. So I would say yeah that they’re on to us and looking for ways to pressure us but it’s a little late.
GLASS: Cat’s out of the bag….."

Craig J Spence

Washington Times 11/13/1989 Michael Hedges, and Jerry Seper "….Craig J. Spence, the once-powerful lobbyist who entertained and influenced Washington's elite, died Friday much as he had lived: dressed in a tuxedo in Boston's most expensive hotel, listening to Mozart with three dollars in his pocket…… Mr. Spence told several friends that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a possible CIA front. He told the friends that the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats…… Now, many questions may never be answered about the man who was a focus of a federal grand jury investigation for spending $20,000 a month on male prostitutes, orchestrating unauthorized late-night tours of the White House and possibly bribing a Secret Service officer and a member of the Army's Delta Force. On a mirror in Room 429 of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Mr. Spence on Friday left his final enigma in the form of a suicide note. With a black felt-tip marker he had written, "Chief, consider this my resignation, effective immediately. As you always said, you can't ask others to make a sacrifice if you are not ready to do the same. Life is duty. God bless America." As a postscript, he wrote, "To the Ritz, please forgive this inconvenience." …….. Mr. Spence was found by hotel employees Friday afternoon lying on his bed, fully clothed, with a telephone cradled in his ear and a Walkman headset containing a cassette tape of Mozart's "A Little Night Music" around his neck, police detectives and other sources said. ……. Found hidden in a false ceiling in the bathroom were seven small packets of Xanex, a prescription anti-depressant, with one pill removed, Detective Sgt. James McDonald said. Also found were Mr. Spence's will and birth certificate……. The door of the hotel had been barricaded with the room's other double bed and a chair, according to a police report. Hotel maintenance workers had to saw through the door to enter the room. The only other way into the room was through a fourth-floor window facing a busy street. Mr. Spence may have attempted to save himself after taking an intentional overdose, according to police investigators……. In an interview with The Washington Times in August, Mr. Spence made frequent allusions to his work with the Central Intelligence Agency, a connection CIA sources deny. But on the bed near him when he died, according to two Boston detectives who handled the investigation, was a newspaper clipping detailing efforts by CIA Director William Webster to initiate legislation giving protection to CIA agents called upon to testify before government bodies. ……. But, despite the subpoena, Mr. Spence apparently never appeared before a grand jury. During the past few weeks, Mr. Spence told several friends that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a possible CIA front. He told the friends that the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats. One friend quoted him as saying, "Casey's boys are out to get me," an apparent reference to former CIA Director William Casey, now deceased. Mr. Casey and Mr. Spence were friends, and the former CIA director attended parties hosted by the former lobbyist…….. During a lengthy interview at a Manhattan apartment in August, Mr. Spence frequently alluded to deep mysteries. "All this stuff you've uncovered (involving call boys, bribery and the White House tours), to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I've done. But I'm not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on." He also talked frequently of suicide, saying repeatedly, "My life is over." He reserved deep bitterness for high-powered friends he said had forsaken him. "I've had the world at my house, and now they don't know who I am," he said. "But they did come, didn't they?" ……"

 

Penthouse Pet (Judy Gibbs?)

NewsMax.Com 3/10/99 Carl Limbacher "....One rather ominous account came from former Clinton bodyguard Barry Spivey, whose name is included on the Jones case supplemental witness list. Lambert described the ex-trooper as a Clinton loyalist still, years after his retirement from the governor's security detail. Spivey had become something of a mystery man, who insisted on meeting Rick Lambert on a deserted road nestled deep in the Arkansas backwoods. The Jones investigator admitted he was none too comfortable with the situation. Spivey shared a story about a conversation he had with Clinton while on a flight over southeast Arkansas. The trooper noticed a blackened patch amidst the greenery below that, surprisingly, Clinton recognized. That patch was all that was left of an estate that had burned to the ground in the mid-80s. According to the trooper, Clinton began reminiscing about rumors of his involvement with the woman of the house, a onetime "Penthouse pet." Her husband, Spivey said, was involved in a pornography ring. Clinton explained to Spivey, "You know that mansion just burned down right on top of them." Years later, Spivey remains struck by one thing: the eerie expression that crossed Clinton's face as he spoke those words. ...."

 

 

 

Mary Beth (Pixie) Grismore

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/bluesky_exnews/19981105_xex_grizly_saga_.shtml

WorldNetDaily.com 11/5/98 H J Halterman ".....Mary Beth Grismore was strangled and found in a car trunk in Ohio, May 3, 1978. Most of the people who knew Mary Beth while she was still alive called her Pixie. ........ On Feb. 21, 1978, she drove her new husband's Ford Thunderbird from her home near Marshall, Indiana, to the nearby city of Terre Haute for a going-away party with two of her friends -- nothing fancy, just a meal at the local lobster joint, a movie and a few hours dancing at some of Terre Haute's nightspots. The trio returned to Marshall just a little before 1:30 a.m., and that was the last time that anyone will admit that Pixie Grismore was ever seen alive. ...... It ended in Whitehall, Ohio -- near the Columbus, Ohio, airport -- on May 3, 1978, when the Whitehall police opened the trunk of a Ford Thunderbird with no license plates that had been left in the parking lot of a local Holiday Inn near the airport that serves Columbus. For almost two months the car sat there until finally, suspicious police opened the trunk. They found a murdered body with a rope around its neck, but 10 weeks of decay and decomposition had so ruined the remains of the former beauty pageant contestant that investigators could not initially even determine if the remains were male or female. Dental records were consulted, and they proved that the body in the car was that of Pixie Grismore. She was 26 years old. ....."

WorldNetDaily.com 11/5/98 H J Halterman ".....Patrick Ralston admitted that he began a romantic affair with the pretty lifeguard in July of 1977...... On Feb. 16, Ralston telephoned Pixie and suggested they get together one more time for old times' sake. She agreed and they met at the bar of the Cloverdale, Indiana, Holiday Inn. Pixie rented room 215 on the hotel's south side, and while there she called her new husband in Iowa from the hotel room phone. ...... Up to that point nothing that Pat Ralston had told the FBI particularly removed him from consideration as a suspect, but then he played his ace: While he and Pixie were in the bar, Ralston told the FBI, she told him that she had done something the day before -- Feb. 15 -- that she had always wanted to do. Pixie told Ralston that P.A. Mack, Indiana Sen. Birch Bayh's chief of staff, had arranged for her to meet with the senator at the bar of an Indianapolis motel and that she partied with the senator and his entourage for a while and that she had then gone to the senator's hotel room with him and that she had "slept with him." Pixie said that she had left Bayh's hotel room early on the morning of the 16th, Ralston told the FBI agents......So the feds checked it out: A registration card for the night of Feb. 15, 1978, indicated that one B.E. Bayh of 2919 Garfield Street NW, Washington, D.C., had indeed stayed in room 579 of the Indianapolis Airport Holiday Inn while he was representing "USS" -- that is, the United States Senate. The room cost $24. ...."

WorldNetDaily.com 11/5/98 H J Halterman ".....By dragging the senator into the investigation, Ralston virtually guaranteed the end of FBI consideration of his past relationship with the murdered woman. If Ralston had ever been charged with the crime, he would only have had to point out that Sen. Bayh's brief but intimate relationship with Pixie was at least as strong a motive for murder as Ralston's own affair with the dead victim. Since Pixie had been a county coordinator for Sen. Bayh and had been seen in public with him, any such revelation could have left the senator's political future as dead as Pixie Grismore....Since there is no statute of limitation for the crime of murder, the investigation of Pixie's homicide is still officially open. Even though then-Sen. Bayh headed the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and was in charge of the oversight committee that supposedly supervises the CIA, NSA and, oh yeah, the FBI, all their investigation couldn't catch the killer -- or killers. But at least the investigators kept Pat Ralston's romantic connection to the victim, and especially her association with former Sen. Bayh, as a closely held secret -- until now. ....."

WorldNetDaily.com 11/5/98 H J Halterman ".....The secret's been kept, all these years, and the Bayh political dynasty continues -- Birch's son Evan, who was until recently Indiana's governor, and thereby the boss of any Indiana state police agencies still investigating Pixie Grismore's murder, has even been suggested as a future Democratic presidential contender, just like his Dad once was. And Evan gets to hobnob with President Clinton, who needs some good advice on how to handle embarrassing reports about affairs with former girlfriends. As governor, Bayh the Younger got to appoint men like witness P.A. Mack, his father's old fixer-upper, to important positions like trustee of Indiana University. And men like Pat Ralston as head of Indiana's Department of Natural Resources in 1989. ....... Ralston became the Democratic Party chairman of Indiana's Vigo County -- the Bayh family powerbase -- in January 1995....... On Feb. 21, 1997, 19 years after Pixie Grismore's final party with her friends in Terre Haute, Ralston was instead announced as the new governor's choice to be the director of the Indiana State Emergency Management Agency....."

The Associated Press 2/8/79 "…… Police now believe a 21-year-old United Press International reporter who was shot in the head while driving may have been hit by a stray bullet, capt, Dale Bruce of the North Little Rock police said Thursday. …….. Bruce said a bullet fragment removed from Mrs. Danielak's brain appeared to be lead, indicating it came from a pistol, not a rifle. He said the normal range of a handgun is "60-70 yards, less than 100 for sure." He said it was possible the bullet was fired from an access road that parallels the interstate, but nobody reported seeing a car on that road. Next to the access road is an open field. "It was dark and I wouldn't think somebody would be out there hunting at that time," Bruce said. "It's a very odd situation. We don't have anything to base anything on." ……. There had been reports that police were investigating the possibility that the shooting was linked to threatening mail she received after writing an article last October for her campus newspaper. In it she objected to efforts by black students to set up a separate publication and a separate beauty pageant. Mrs. Danielak is white. …..Earlier, police had said they thought the shooting was deliberate even though they had been unable to establish a motive. ….Mrs. Danielak, a journalism student at the University of Arkansas, was a temporary UPI employee assigned to the legislature. ……."

Her killer has never been caught, and there is no statute of limitations on the crime of murder in the state of Arkansas. Press reports at the time of her death stated that she had received hate mail regarding previous stories she'd written while a university student journalist in Little Rock. Following a statement by newly-seated Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, the police investigation shifted to consideration that she was a random target, though she had been struck directly in the head with a single shot from a large-caliber handgun similar to those used by the Arkansas State Police, an unusual choice of equipment for a *sniper*. Although later, possible *copycat* shootings occurred, in none of them was anyone killed and ballistic tests on recovered bullets showed that they came from weapons other than that used to kill Judy Danielak.

Admiral Donald Engen

DOD News Briefing 9/10/96 http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Sep1996/t091096_t0910asd.html "…..Today, Secretary Perry appointed retired Vice Admiral Donald Engen to head a team conducting an independent review of the Department of Defense Executive Support Air Fleet. As you know, the White House asked for such a review on Friday after two incidents involving Marine Corps helicopters. Vice Admiral Engen is also the former head of the Federal Aviation Administration and he ran the Air Force safety review that General Fogleman called for last year. ……. This review will examine all relevant practices and procedures affecting the reliability and safety of the executive air transportation by this Department. It will look at training, operations and maintenance. …… Admiral Engen was a Naval aviator and held a number of important posts including commander in chief of the U.S. Naval Forces in Europe, and this study should be done in 30 days. ……. He will be heading a team of undetermined size. The team is in the process of being put together and they will as I say review all aspects of the executive air support. ….."

DoD News Briefing Mr. Kenneth H. Bacon, ASD (PA) 12/3/96 http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Dec1996/t120396_t1203asd.html
"…..many of you have already picked up, I think, a copy of the report on executive aircraft used by the White House and other distinguished government travelers. This report was commissioned by Secretary Perry and it was led by Vice Admiral Donald Engen, who is a retired naval aviator. He became the Director of the Federal Aviation Administration, and now runs the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum. So he's Mr. Aviation. …… He reviewed the planes used to transport the President and to support other White House missions. Those are basically the planes in the Air Force 89th Air Wing from Andrews Air Force Base, and the Marine Helicopter Squadron One from Quantico, Virginia. …… His findings were that the executive air fleet operates in a very safe and reliable way, and he found that the presidential airlift provided by the Air Force and the Marines has been virtually flawless. He basically divided his review into two areas. He looked first at the aircraft both from the Air Force and the Marines that carry the President. That's Air Force One, obviously, and Marine One. Those are the ones that he found were, as he said, virtually flawless……

Then he looked at support aircraft that support White House missions. It would be either backup aircraft -- they would be aircraft to carry equipment, communications equipment, to carry staff, and other support elements of a presidential travel mission -- and also aircraft that carry Cabinet officials, sometimes Supreme Court Justices, sometimes members of Congress. It was this overall fleet that he found has been operating very safely and reliably. He did make several recommendations for both the Air Force and the Marine Corps. Secretary Perry has passed on those recommendations to both the Secretary of the Air Force and the Secretary of the Navy and asked them to report back to him in 60 days on how they plan to deal with the recommendations. So you have that package. The recommendations for the Air Force deal with the modernization of the fleet; some deal with the definition of a certain training level; one deals with command and control of the presidential pilot office. And the recommendations for the Marines also deal with buying some new helicopters and relooking at an organizational table for the way the operation is run. With those comments, I'll take your questions.

Q: I wasn't able to get through every page of it, but was there a reference to the Brown, Secretary Brown's...
A: No, that was not... That was part of a European Wing. It wasn't part of the 89th Air Wing. Basically this report was requested by the White House Chief of Staff, Leon Panetta, on September 6th of this year after two Marine Corps helicopters both had mishaps, and that followed shortly after an Air Force C- 130 crashed taking off from Wyoming. So Leon Panetta asked the Secretary of Defense to review the safety procedures of the executive airlift operation.

Q: When they talk about defining a certain level of training for the pilots, are they talking about a higher level of training beyond that which the Air Force requires?
A: First, in answering all these questions, I again want to make sure that you focus on the fundamental distinction between the planes and crews that fly and maintain the President on the one hand; and all the others, on the other. We're looking now at the others, because the training requirements and the experience requirements for those who fly the President -- either in fixed wing aircraft or helicopters -- are extremely high. They're high also in all the others. They're not as high, though. One of the findings of the report was that for some... That the Air Force considers its most difficult missions to be those that involve aerial refueling, that involve airdrops, and involve certain other air procedures. They don't regard flying people in a transport capacity or civil air type capacity to be as demanding a mission as those that require air-to-air refueling, airdrops, or other procedures. So they tend, everything else being equal, to assign the most experienced pilots to missions that require air-to-air refueling and other activities like that. It asked that they review the experience levels required for flying in the 89th Air Wing. This only applies to fixed wing aircraft -- the Air Force part of it. That's what they mean. The regulations do say that the pilots have to be highly qualified, I think is the term they use, but there's no definition of what highly qualified means. So it asks that there be some attention given to defining the level of experience and training necessary.

……Q: If I could go back to this investigation for a moment. The report, as you noted, said that VIP and civil airlift have received exceedingly low accident rates, but it also notes regardless, there's a perception among many passengers that flying is unsafe. When you have a series of high profile accidents like the helicopter one and the C-130 crash, does it create a false impression about the safety of the fleet, do you think?
A: I don't have, unfortunately, my copy of the report here. I thought it said that there was the impression on the part of some in the press that there might be a safety problem. I think every time there's a crash people worry about safety. This report is very clear and forthright in pointing out that these are human institutions, the planes are flown by humans, they're maintained by humans, and that no human institution is infallible. But the people who fly the President and maintain his planes, and the people who fly the planes for other distinguished travelers and maintain those planes, are doing the best job they can. They're operating at very high standards, and they're required to operate at very high standards. Having said that, you can always find ways to lift standards even higher. That's what the proposals and recommendations were designed to do. ….."

Press Report 7/14/99 "……MINDEN, Nevada -- …… Engen and longtime friend William Ivans of La Jolla, California, were killed Tuesday when Ivans' glider broke apart and crashed into a field several miles east of Lake Tahoe. Engen was 75, Ivans 79…….. Engen was appointed by Smithsonian Secretary I. Michael Heyman. Air and Space is the most popular of the 16 museums and galleries operated by the institution……. A much-decorated Navy pilot, Engen retired as a vice admiral in 1978. He was administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration from 1984 to 1987, and served for two years on the National Transportation Safety Board. At the FAA, Engen levied a series of fines against airlines, including a $9.5 million penalty against Eastern Airlines for alleged safety violations. Engen also revised the way the FAA kept track of near-collision reports to make it more accurate. But critics said that under Engen, the FAA continued to react to safety issues instead of being on top of them. Engen left the FAA amid reports of a stormy relationship with then-Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole, who is now seeking the Republican nomination for the 2000 presidential race. Engen later told a Senate panel that while he headed FAA, the Transportation Department sometimes added months to the time his agency needed to implement new air safety regulations. The FAA is a branch of the department. Engen, who lived in Arlington, Virginia, was married and had four children……"

7/15/99 Press Report "……MINDEN, Nevada - Investigators are probing splintered wreckage to find out why a glider broke apart and spiraled to earth at 200 mph, killing the director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum and his friend, a world-renowned pilot…… Bob Francis, vice-chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, led a federal team that arrived Wednesday from Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles to investigate the crash - the second fatal glider accident in a month here. …… "Some witnesses said they were experiencing some significant thermal turbulence" at the time, Francis said. Thunderstorms and high winds developed later. He also said Ivans' Nimbus 4DM glider was radio-equipped, but it's uncertain whether there was any transmission as the plane went down. The German-built, dual-control plane also has a type of "black box" flight recorder which will be analyzed. The two victims - Ivans in the front pilot's seat and Enged in the rear - also had parachutes. Francis declined to comment when asked whether they might have been unable to get out of the plane as it rocketed to the ground at an estimated 180-200 mph. He also said NTSB investigators will look into reports that two other gliders similar to Ivans' broke up when speed brakes were used to slow rapid ascents. "To get a break-up, you need some serious forces, whatever it was," he said. ……. Glider pilot Kenny Brieglieb, flying above Ivans' aircraft, also saw the crash. Larry Sanderson, president of the Soaring Society of America, said Brieglieb told him that the plane was "nose down with the wings flexing greatly" before breaking up seconds later. Sanderson, a friend of both victims, said one potential problem is that a wing could stall when a glider makes turns in a thermal - air rising rapidly from a sun-heated surface. Ivans was circling upward in a thermal when his plane broke up, witnesses said. "The same conditions that produce world-class gliding can challenge you as well," Sanderson said, adding that "it had to be a very unusual set of circumstances that stressed the aircraft." ……….."

9/13/99 NTSB Identification: LAX99MA251
Accident occurred JUL-13-99 at MINDEN, NV
Aircraft: Schempp-Hirth NIMBUS 4DM, registration: N807BB
Injuries: 2 Fatal.
"……. On July 13, 1999, at 1310 hours Pacific daylight time, a Schempp-Hirth Nimbus 4DM motorized glider, N807BB, experienced an in-flight breakup while maneuvering near Minden, Nevada. The commercial glider pilot and a passenger were fatally injured and the glider was destroyed. The personal flight was operated by the owner/pilot under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91. No flight plan was filed for the local flight. The glider is certificated in the United States in the experimental category for exhibition and racing. A production glider in Germany, a standard/utility category airworthiness certificate was issued by the German civil aviation authority.
The glider departed from Minden airport at 1240. A glider pilot witness stated he was soaring about 1,000 feet below the accident glider. The witness observed the glider in a high-speed spiral with a 45-degree nose down attitude. After two full rotations, the rotation stopped, the flight stabilized on a north easterly heading, and the nose pitched further down to a near vertical attitude. The glider was observed to level its attitude, with the wings bending upward and the wing tips coning higher. The outboard wing tip panels departed from the glider, the wings disintegrated, and the fuselage dove into the ground. Other witnesses have subsequently stated the glider was in a tight turn, as if climbing in a thermal, when it entered the spiral. The glider appeared to be recovering from a spin. A second witness was in another glider between 9,000 and 10,000 feet and observed portions of the accident sequence. He immediately headed for the airport to report the accident and encountered "very turbulent" conditions with a sudden 40-knot airspeed increase. He characterized the conditions as "more choppy than normal" and further stated that "controllability was not unmanageable but was rough." The glider is composite construction. Reconstruction of the glider revealed that all primary and secondary flight control surfaces, including mass balance weights, were within the wreckage distribution path. Control system continuity was established….."

 

 

 

Lee Scott Hall

Associated Press 2/16/00 "…..On Oct. 20, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory designer Lee Scott Hall was found lying face down in his bedroom, beaten and stabbed to death. Then, police discovered Hall knew about a flaw in the lab's super laser, a $1.2 billion project called the National Ignition Facility that has been plagued by projected delays and cost overruns. Four months later, police are still trying to unravel the mystery: Did Hall's job at the weapons lab somehow lead to his death? Lab officials say no…… On Tuesday, Livermore Police Chief Ron Scott said some of the information in stories about the whistle-blower theory was ``correct, some based on speculation, and some inaccurate.'' He declined to identify which was which, saying ``I don't want to feed into anything else that's going on.'' The super laser is designed to test nuclear weapons by using simulations instead of underground tests. Plans call for it to be the size of a football stadium; it will be able to fire 192 laser beams onto a target the size of BB to simulate temperatures and pressures similar to those inside a nuclear explosion or at the sun's core. It is a cornerstone of the nuclear weapons program, but it became a source of embarrassment to lab officials last September with revelations it might be five years late and $350 million over budget. ……Livermore officials said Hall, 54, had been working to fix a design flaw on the super laser. But Hall's boss, Richard Foley, said Hall was part of a team looking into a potential problem and the flaw in question was pointed out by someone else when Hall was on vacation. The problem is relatively small - not part of the major troubles forcing the delays - and could be fixed for around $1 million, Foley said……. It was Foley and another lab worker who found Hall's body, when they went to his house after he failed to show up for work. Hall lived alone and there was no sign of forced entry or robbery and little sign of a struggle. He was stabbed repeatedly. ….."

FBI Special Agent Martha Dixon Martinez

FBI Special Agent Michael John Miller

On November 22, 1994, Special Agents Martha Dixon Martinez and Michael John Miller, as well as a Washington, D.C., police detective, were shot and killed inside the District's police headquarters building. At approximately 3:30 p.m., gunman Bennie Lee Lawson entered the "cold case" squad room, to which the Agents were assigned, and opened fire with a TEC-9 assault weapon. During the exchange of fire, a third Special Agent was shot and seriously wounded, and a 15-year-old boy was shot in the leg. Lawson, who also died of gunshot wounds sustained during the incident, had left handwritten notes at his home indicating that his intended targets were the commander of the police department's homicide squad and his investigators. Lawson was a suspect in a triple homicide, which occurred a month prior, and he had been questioned by D.C. homicide detectives the previous week.

Martha Dixon Martinez

http://www.getwwwed.com/martha/ "…..FBI Special Agent Martha Dixon Martinez was killed November 22, 1994 when a gunman armed with an automatic rifle entered the Cold Case Squad Room at the Washington, D.C. Metro Police Station and opened fire. Martha was in an annexed office at the time he started shooting, but she entered the room upon hearing gunfire. She wounded him but was killed in the exchange. The gunman also killed another agent, a police sargeant and himself. One agent escaped after being wounded. Her courageous actions prevented the possibility of further injury and death…..

…..Martha's career began at the State Crime Lab in Little Rock, Arkansas, where she worked as a forensics chemist, analyzing crime scenes for evidence. Continuing education seminars at the FBI Academy in Quantico on forensic chemistry and evidence collection captured Martha's interest and the goal of analyzing evidence at the federal level prompted her to apply to the FBI Academy. The good news was her acceptance, but she also learned that at least 2 years of duty as an agent was required prior to any requests for a placement in the crime lab. Martha felt it was worth the duty and was assigned to Knoxville, Tennessee after graduation from the FBI Academy in 1987.

…..Much to her own surprise, Martha found herself loving her field work. She continued with professional training wherever she was eligible, becoming trained for high level technical surveillance and for the SWAT team. Her SWAT team was responsible for the resolution of the uprising at the Talladega Prison in August of 1991 by successfully executing a forced entry into the prison, which had undergone a hostile takeover by the prisoners. Martha was decorated for her bravery in that action.

......Following 5 years in Knoxville, Martha was transferred to Washington, D.C. Field Office of the FBI. She was eventually assigned to the Cold Case Homicide Task Force to work with the Washington, D.C. Metro Police on old unsolved cases. Since this transfer moved her closer to Headquarters, the home of the FBI Crime Lab, Martha was considering returning to forensics work. Just prior to her death Martha was chosen to pioneer a new task group on evidence collection at WFO. The unit is now functioning and called the Martha Dixon Martinez Evidence Response Team.

On May 21, 1995, FBI Director Louis Freeh presented Martha's parents and husband two posthumous awards.

The FBI Memorial Star Director Freeh's presentation and the inscription on the plaque: In honor of Special Agent Martinez who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and all of humanity while working on the Cold Case Squad at the District of Columbia's Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters. On November 22, 1994, when Agent Martinez responded to gunfire in the Cold Case Squad area, a confrontation ensued, in which she was fatally wounded. The heroic actions of Agent Martinez prevented the possibility of even greater loss of life and serious injury to other law enforcement officials and citizens within the building. This special recognition is presented in Agent Martinez's memory and in tribute to her performance which was in the highest traditions of the FBI.

The FBI Medal of Valor The Director awarded this for an exceptional act of heroism which occured in the direct line of duty in the face of a criminal adversary. This act also involved the voluntary risk of personal safety and life.

Other tributes to Martha's heroic life and death include:

AP 2/15/00 "….. A former Army recruiter who survived the 1995 federal building bombing and later testified against Timothy McVeigh committed suicide by crashing his rented plane, the medical examiner has determined. The conclusion was cited in a recently released report by the National Transportation and Safety Board. Laurence Martin's plane went down near an Oklahoma City church Oct. 11, 1998. According to the report, Martin's girlfriend, who was attending services at the church, had reportedly turned down his marriage proposal the day before. The report said Martin, 41, also ignored a request from the plane's owner, who thought Martin had taken off too fast, that he return to the airport immediately. The NTSB said the control tower relayed the message and Martin acknowledged receiving it, but he did not return. An inspection of the Cessna 172 less than a month before the crash had found no problems, and witnesses said the plane's engine was running when it plowed into the ground. ……"

Freeper GrandmaC 2/24/00 E-MAIL FROM WASHINTON TIMES REPORTER AUDREY HUDSON "….. Received this in an e-mail this evening from Audrey Hudson, herself. Please Take particular note of the footnote by Ms Hudson. It is from that my subtitle was taken. U.S. conservation grant funds anti-poaching arms training By Audrey Hudson THE WASHINGTON TIMES ……. An international animal rights group used U.S. funds to underwrite assault-weapons training for special anti-poaching "brigades" using Senegal army personnel in Africa, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times. The program hired a former Israeli security official to train troops to protect African elephants using weapons captured from Saddam Hussein's army. ……. But Mr. Clark told The Washington Times this week that training focused on safety and not Israeli defense tactics. Through his grant proposals and presentations to Fish and Wildlife and Department of Defense officials over the course of six years, Mr. Clark reported that no elephants had been poached, and in fact hunters had stopped stalking the elephants for their ivory. The greatest threat in the park was the hunting of "bushmeat," such as buffalo, waterbuck and antelope by gangs of poachers. A Fish and Wildlife Service spokeswoman said the grants were awarded on the merits of the grant proposals and that the population of the elephants is increasing in the first time in a decade. The elephant population in the park today stands at 56, Mr. Clark said, and there has been only one incident of poachers ambushing rangers since 1993. …….. (Footnote from Audrey. The documents this story was based on were obtained by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The FOIA officer in charge of collecting these documents, my sources tell me, was pressured by his colleagues to refuse the FOIA request. He did not, as it would be in violation of the law, and turned the documents over to The Washington Times Last Monday. On Thursday, I called the Fish and Wildlife Service for comment on the story.

Kenneth Trentadue

 

http://www.senate.gov/~hatch/press/press050.html 10/10/97 "…..On August 21, 1995, Kenneth Michael Trentadue was found dead in his cell while he was in custody at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center (FTC). The Bureau of Prisons initially labeled his death a suicide, but at some time thereafter, the Department of Justice opened a criminal investigation into the facts and circumstances of his death. Last night, the Department of Justice informed Trentadue's brother, Jesse Trentadue, that no federal criminal charges would be brought against anyone in connection with the death of Kenneth Trentadue.

I have been concerned for some time now that there may have been wrongdoing in connection with the death of Kenneth Trentadue. I also have sought to keep abreast of the status of this investigation. Generally speaking, I have been very troubled by what has been said about the events at the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma, and by what I have been told about how the various agencies involved have handled their investigation of this matter. A specific concern that I have had is that the agencies involved have not proceeded with due speed into their investigation. In fact, there appears to have been an apparent lack of dispatch in getting to the bottom of what happened. Certainly, no one should be ever be indicted where the law and the evidence do not exist to justify such a step. What is disheartening is that we may never know what evidence the Department had compiled given the fact that the investigation was conducted via a federal grand jury.

Nonetheless, because the Department of Justice was conducting a criminal investigation, I did not believe that it then was necessary for the Senate Judiciary Committee to conduct an oversight investigation of and hearing into this matter. While the possibility for state criminal action still exists, now that the Justice Department has announced that no federal criminal charges will be brought, the Senate Judiciary Committee can pursue its oversight responsibilities without disrupting an ongoing federal criminal investigation. Accordingly, it is my intention to hold an oversight hearing later this year to examine the facts surrounding the death of Mr. Trentadue and the Department's handling of the matter to date….."

 

http://www.usdoj.gov/oig/sa991/sa991p1.htm 10/1/98-3/1/99 Office of the Inspector General "….Kenneth Trentadue, an inmate held at the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was found dead in his cell in August 1995. The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) concluded that Trentadue committed suicide by hanging. However, allegations that Trentadue was murdered led to an investigation by the FBI and the Department's Civil Rights Division. The investigation concluded that there was insufficient evidence of any violation of federal criminal civil rights laws. Following that investigation and at the Deputy Attorney General's request, the OIG initiated a separate review focusing on whether BOP or FBI employees mishandled evidence or engaged in other misconduct in the events surrounding Trentadue's death. The team is concluding the investigative phase of the inquiry and soon will begin writing the report of investigation…."

Reuters 12/8/99 "…..The Justice Department's inspector general faulted the Bureau of Prisons and the FBI for a series of mistakes in the case of a 1995 inmate suicide in Oklahoma City, according to a summary of the investigation released yesterday. The report by acting Inspector General Robert Ashbaugh concluded that Kenneth Trentadue killed himself at the Federal Transfer Center, where he was found hanging from a grate in his cell with a bedsheet around his neck. But the report said the response by Bureau of Prison employees was "significantly flawed." "They inappropriately delayed entry into his cell, did not examine him properly and did not immediately provide medical attention to him," the report said. It said the FBI devoted insufficient attention to the case for several months, then mishandled and misplaced important evidence. The report also concluded that three Bureau of Prisons employees and one FBI employee lied about their actions to supervisors, investigators or the inspector general's office. Although the Justice Department's public integrity unit declined to bring any charges for the false statements, the inspector general called it "serious misconduct" and referred the matter to the FBI and Bureau of Prisons for "appropriate action." The full 206-page report has not been released….."

 

Freeper archy "….Another interesting case of "suicide" in Oklahoma, since the bombing, is that of Kenneth Trentadue, who as the result of violating conditions of his parole in California, was re-incarcerated and sent to a federal (transfer) facility in Oklahoma. Mr. Trentadue, the brother of a prominent Salt Lake City, Utah attorney, supposedly committed suicide by hanging himself……. Kenneth Trentadue's was committed with knotted or "braided" bedsheet, barely long enough to fit around his neck in a "suicide-proof" prison cell……THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE later reported the trustees who cleaned Mr. Trentadue's cell after his "suicide" found copious amounts of blood inside. This included bloody fingerprints up a wall, to within a few inches of a "panic button" on or near the ceiling. This certainly is not consistent with hanging.

……When his family was contacted by prison officials and informed of his "suicide", they were asked if they wanted his remains cremated. They indicated they did not, and after a very difficult time and much red-tape, the body was finally shipped back to them. Being very skeptical as to a suicide, family members removed the mortuary make-up and were shocked to find part of his skull crushed, his knuckles damaged, bruises, puncture-and-slash-wounds over a good portion of his body (including the soles of his feet) and his throat slashed. Boot heel marks were apparent around the right eye and on his chest. All evidence points to the fact Kenneth Trentadue was subdued after a fight - brutally beaten, tortured and murdered!

(Update: THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, Sat. July 11, 1998 - states M.E. says Trentadue death "suicide"!).

….Many Americans who are familiar with the Trentadue case see a chilling similarity between Officer Terry Yeakey's "suicide" and Kenneth Trentadue's. Especially when each occurred in such close proximity to the other, in and around El Reno and Oklahoma City, AFTER the bombing….. Like Terry Yeakey, Kenneth Trentadue, (although smaller) was also a powerfully-built man. He lifted weights regularly, had a 19-inch neck and was a street-fighter with street savvy. In short, he knew how to take care of himself…..And many also wonder why a man re-incarcerated for violating his parole would REQUEST solitary confinement….. http://www.myfreeoffice.com/pef/OKCa.html

Arkansas ChronicleTom Winters and A.J. Hardcastle Freeper Leper Messiah "……… [snip]"The sequence of exposure of the pictures is tracked by 'frame numbers' that appear on the edge of the film. Even after the negatives are cut into strips and placed in plastic sleeves, you can always tell which order they were shot in by looking at the frame number just beneath the actual image," said the Navy analyst. "Those frame numbers are put on the film by the manufacturer, not the camera." …….. It is this "image sequence" that creates the most problems for the Justice Department. When you take the pictures, in the sequence that the government claims they are on the roll and compare it to the testimony, and, to other pictures on the same roll, the Alice-in-Wonderland world of the government defense to a murder case becomes shockingly apparent.

……..According to the negatives, the sun had risen an hour early, just in time for prison guard Freeman to take his first picture of the cell. His camera, a Minolta with a built-in flash, failed to flash on the first shot in the cell. And through the vertical slit window at the back of the cell, you can see daylight, trees and grass. "Another picture after that one shows a clearly illuminated outdoor scene," said the expert. "Somehow, the sun set again. Additional pictures, but with higher frame numbers, show total darkness outside the very same window. There's just no way the sun was going up and down. It's the pictures that are all wrong."

…….Pressed for an explanation as to how such images could be faked, the image expert explained. He described the process whereby a computer with two "peripherals," a negative scanner and a film output printer were used to fabricate a roll of film that appears to be "original," but really isn't. "What someone obviously has done is this: they had the two rolls of film all along. And I would guess that there is surely something on one or both of those rolls they don't want anyone to see. So, they simply used a common computer tool, a 'negative scanner,' to import the negative images into a graphics program.

……..Government lawyers also produced the faked negatives for copying onto CD-ROM's. The analyst said that there are tell-tale "artifacts" on the digital imagery that further confirms the negatives are "second generation," but would not offer specific details on the methodology used to identify the fake photos. Arkansas Chronicle was able to obtain a set of the CD-ROMs and have them analyzed at the same time as the prints were analyzed.

………The analyst said that the most damning piece of evidence is that one of the pictures released earlier by government lawyers somehow does not appear on the "roll" that the FBI produced. "It's sort of an obscure shot. But the point is, the picture is not on the roll of their negatives, and without question, it was indeed shot between two frames that I can absolutely identify on the roll they released." Other evidence suggests, he said, that the roll they produced was in fact shot from two different cameras with "two different lens systems."

……."Since the case record would indicate that the FBI had custody of these negatives for several years," said the imagery expert, "that's where I would be looking in terms of identifying who manipulated this imagery. It took really expensive equipment to produce these fakes and not a lot of people have it." Contacted again shortly before press time, the expert would neither confirm nor deny that he is one of two imagery experts now examining video tape of aerial FBI infrared photography from Waco for a U.S. Congressional committee headed by Rep. Dan Burton.

…….According to court records in the Trentadue case, the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General has indeed been investigating Bureau of Prisons and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents for complicity in criminal misconduct in the Trentadue case. It was in the process of having the pictures and CD-ROM's examined that a chilling allegation surfaced about the capabilities of the FBI's lab, especially its ability to alter physical evidence such as photographs, video and audio tape. A person recently employed as an FBI lab technician, in the process of approaching a public interest group called "Judicial Watch," claims to be able to prove that the alleged audio tapes of Branch Davidians talking about setting fires in the Waco compound are as fake as the Trentadue pictures.

……..Judicial Watch does in fact represent several federal "whistleblowers" including former agents of various agencies in high-profile cases involving alleged governmental corruption. The non-profit organization, headed by Larry Klayman, has filed a series of high-profile suits against government officials claiming miscounduct, fraud, waste and abuse of office. When shown the Trentadue pictures, the former FBI worker claimed to personally know the persons responsible for faking the negatives. Arkansas Chronicle was able to confirm that one of the persons named does indeed work in the section of the FBI lab responsible for processing photographic evidence.

…….The former lab worker could not produce any documentation of claims of falsifying evidence and when pressed for details on the Waco case said, "I hope to be able to file a lawsuit that involves a lot of misconduct in the lab and I don't want to say anything at this time that might jeopardize that." The former technician expressed great fear of the FBI saying, "When you mess with them, they mess back." "The FBI can compete with the best of Hollywood special effects shops," said the former lab worker. "I wouldn't really believe anything controversial that they produce." The former worker claims to have walked in on one session in "an editing bay," where "forward looking infrared (FLIR) imagery" was being edited. "I recognized the scene as Waco." Interestingly, the interviews with the former worker occurred months prior to public information surfacing about the existence of the now controversial video tapes found in FBI possession. "The particular suite they were in has extensive special effects and electronic editing capability," said the source. "While I cannot honestly say I saw them alter evidence, I can tell you that I was present on more than one occasion where both audio and video tapes from Waco were being 'played' in editing suites where the only logical reason for anybody being there was to alter or edit original footage. If you just wanted to play the stuff there are a lot better places to do it than an editing suite." Burton's committee has already learned that some of the Waco video tapes are in fact missing part of the audio tracks where critical conversations between agents are thought to have been recorded……."

WorldnetDaily 10/13/97 Sarah Foster "……In another life, Kenneth Trentadue had been a bank robber. After serving seven years of a 20-year sentence, he was paroled in 1988 and, as ex-cons are supposed to do, tried to put his criminal past behind him. ….. But he had one problem -- a minor parole violation on his record from 1989. …... On Aug. 18 he was flown from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego to the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City, a major facility of the Justice Department's Bureau of Prisons, to await his hearing. According to family members, he wasn't worried. At most his sentence would be six months, more likely, three. He'd probably be home for Christmas. …..Like everyone who is admitted into the prison system, Kenneth underwent routine psychological tests to determine if he had suicidal tendencies. The results indicated he didn't. Nevertheless, he was placed, for some unknown reason, in a specially designed, suicide-proof cell in a special unit on the seventh floor that's segregated from the general prison population. A form bearing the signature Vance Brockway -- an lais he used in his bank robbery days -- indicates he asked to be placed in protective custody. Family members say it was a forgery. ……."

WorldnetDaily 10/13/97 Sarah Foster "……On Aug. 21, 1995, Trentadue died in that isolation cell. Officials promptly declared the death a suicide. Trentadue, who was scheduled for a parole hearing, hanged himself from an air vent using a 23-inch length of braid he fashioned from a bedsheet, according to prison officials. ……… The following day the Inspector General's Office of the Justice Department ruled that no "prosecutable federal crime had occurred." Two years later, that's still the official government line despite a staggering amount of evidence indicating Trentadue was murdered. ……"

WorldnetDaily 10/13/97 Sarah Foster "……Jesse Trentadue was as suspicious as his mother. No cremation, he said, and directed the body be sent to a funeral parlor near Kenneth's home in Westminster. ......It was five days before the casket arrived. Kenneth's face was covered with an unusually thick coating of pancake makeup. His broad, six-foot frame had been dressed in a suit. "They (Kenneth's mother, his wife Carmen, and sister Donna) scraped off the makeup and found he was bruised from the top of his head to the soles of his feet," says George Hansen, former seven-term Republican congressman from Idaho and founder of the U.S. Citizens Commission on Human Rights -- a newly-formed grass-roots organization which has been working closely with the Trentadue family. "An autopsy showed he had been garrotted -- probably with the braided sheet. His throat was cut and torn out. His head was smashed in three places. He had been burned on the face, shoulders and tailbone with an electrical stun-gun. Under his arms were deep bruises showing how he had been held while others beat up on him. There was blood all over the place, according to the guy that had to clean it up afterwards. It was a fight for his life." ...... "

WorldnetDaily 10/13/97 Sarah Foster "……The cover-up of this ghastly crime began before the victim was dead. A call to 911 was made at approximately 3:20 a.m., but when the paramedics arrived they weren't allowed in the cell to resuscitate Trentadue, though supposedly he was still alive. Minutes later -- having been sent away, then called back to confirm his death -- they were told the massive injuries they saw on the body (now removed to another room) were caused by Trentadue falling and hitting his head on the sink while trying to hang himself. They never saw the death cell itself. ......... Investigators for Dr. Fred Jordan, Oklahoma City's chief medical examiner, were also denied access to the scene -- a violation of state and federal law, according to Jesse Trentadue. This, despite the fact that Jordan's job includes investigating the deaths of prisoners at the center. ……"

WorldnetDaily 10/13/97 Sarah Foster "……Jordan performed an autopsy that morning and ruled that Kenneth Trentadue had died of asphyxiation, in a manner "unknown." Without viewing the death scene, the medical examiner refused to declare the obviously battered body a suicide. Jordan asked the FBI to investigate the death, but that agency soon turned the investigation over to the Bureau of Prisons. ….."

PAUL NERI

COLONEL COTULO

COLONEL BAKER

COLONEL ROWE

CWO PEARCE

Freeper archy 4/5/00 "……Mr. Paul Neri of the National Security Agency died on April 29, 1990. Before his death, he requested that I mail the enclosed affidavit to you. Paul Neri was concerned that he would be killed or lose his security clearance if he revealed the affidavit before he died. According tho him, these facts are true. If you investigate and interview the parties named within the affidavit, you will find the information is true. I am simply carrying out the wishes of a good friend, but do not want to get involved any further; therefore, I shall remain anonymous.

Several years ago Colonel Cutolo obligated me to bring the enclosed affidavit forward in the event of his death.

In 1980 Col. Cutolo died in an accident while on a military exercise. Just prior to his death he notified me that he was to meet with Michael Harari, an Israeli Mossad agent. It is my belief, though unsubstantiated, that Harari murdered Col. Cutolo because of the information Col. Cutolo possessed.

In the event of Col. Cutolo's death, I was told to discreetly contact Col. Baker which I did. I believe that Col. Cutolo died in his attempt to prove that Operation Watch Tower was not sanctioned by the proper authorities. (see attached affidavit)

Col. Baker enlisted the aid of Col. Nick Rowe, and between Col. Baker, Col. Rowe, and myself, we set out to prove that Harari murdered Col. Cutolo, and that Operation Watch Tower was an unsanctioned illegal operation, which netted Edwin Wilson and Frank Terpil of the CIA a large sum of tax -free dollars.

Prior to getting very far into the investigation, Col. Baker died while in command of the 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group. Col. Baker did not live long enough to see Edwin Wilson arrested for trafficking arms to Libya.

The Libyan situation has two sides to it. First Wilson claimed top CIA officials approached him to go to Libya under the "guise" of trafficking arms, while in actuality gathering intelligence. In this situation (active duty) special forces at Ft. Bragg were approached by Wilson to go to Libya to train troops. The Special Forces verified the fact that Wilson was with the CIA and went along. The second side was the prosecution's theory of the events at Wilson's trial. The prosecution contended that Wilson didn't work for the CIA and duped the Special Forces into helping him. Wilson was convicted and is currently in the Federal Prison at Marion, Illinois, as I am sure you are aware.

One of the CIA officials Wilson claims were involved in the Libyan situation was Thomas Clines. Thomas Clines is named in Col. Cutolo's affidavit by Wilson as being in charge of Operation Watch Tower. Thomas Clines was recently named in the Iran-contra affair for his failure to declare monies earned in that affair.

Col. Baker, Col. Rowe, and myself concluded after failing to verify through various intelligence contacts the existence of Operation Watch Tower, that the operation was run entirely on the authority of Thomas Clines, Edwin Wilson and Frank Terpil.

A pattern emerged from the Libyan situation in which Clines, Wilson and Terpil were involved, that was identical to Operation Watch Tower. The similarities we noted were:

1.Thomas Clines named as CIA agent in charge, but behind the scenes.

2.Wilson, as the front man, running the operations.

3.Unauthorized use of U.S. Military Personnel to implement both of the operations.

4.Large sums of money involved either relating to arms or to drug trafficking.

5.U.S. interests don't appear to have been served by either operation.

Considering these similarities and the most recent issue of Clines' involvement in withholding taxes stemming from the Iran-contra affair, the possibility of Edwin Wilson being sent to Libya, as he claimed, to gather intelligence is very possible.

Suppose Clines, Wilson and Terpil were each separately involved in Operation Watch Tower, as Col. Cutolo's affidavit sets out. Wilson would not have hesitated to go to Libya for Clines, if Wilson thought it was sanctioned by the company. At the same time, if Clines was trying to erase all ties to Operation Watch Tower and Wilson there would never have been a better opportunity for Clines to rid himself of the cnnection than by sending Wilson on an unsanctioned mission to Libya.

It's also interesting to note that Frank Terpil, who played a minor role in Operation Watch Tower and who was involved in the Libyan situation, is still at large, but sought by the U.S. authorities. It's possible that Terpil helped Clines set up Wilson.

Wilson claimed during his trial that Clines had a debt to Wilson in excess of a million dollars. Where did Wilson or Clines earn that amount of money legally? It presents a substantial motive for Clines to set Wilson up, aside from the motive of Operation Watch Tower a secret. So the story of Edwin Wilson was reviewed by us. We were left with doubts as to his guilt in the Libyan situation. We had no doubt as to the guilt of Thomas Clines, who we suspect was the master mind behind Operation Watch Tower.

After Col. Baker died, Col. Rowe and I located Hugh B. Pierce, named in Col. Cutolo's affidavit. Pearce was then assigned to the National Air Guard in Wilmington, Delaware.

Chief Warrant Officer Pearce verified that Col. Cutolo had given him a copy of the affidavit Col. Cutolo had written. Mr. Pearce verified that Col. Cutolo had openly discussed the entire affidavit with him. We never established how Mr. Pearce and Col. Cutolo became acquainted. Mr. Pearce also verified that Col. Cutolo was due to meet Michael Harari in England just prior to Col. Cutolo's death. Mr. Pearce told us that Col. Cutolo referred to Pearce as his "ace in the hole." We never established what that meant.

Mr Pearce did refer Col. Rowe to an address at Camp Shelby, Mississippi and the name of Larkin Smith. Smith turned out to be a state politician and Col. Rowe and I made plans to discreetly meet with him in the latter part of 1989, within weeks after our communication with Smith, Col. Rowe who had been assigned to the Philippines was assassinated.

It is interesting to note, that although authorities in the Philippines arrested a person with communist ties and beliefs and charged him with the murder of Col. Rowe, Michael Harari was in the Philippines for three days just prior to and after Col. Rowe's murder. Coincidence? It is my unsubstantiated belief that Harari murdered Col. Rowe or arranged it.

I believe Harari's motive for murdering Col. Rowe was due to Col. Rowe's inquiries about Harari's movements and relationships to Edwin Wilson, Thomas Clines and Manuel Noriega.

In June 1989, Mr Pearce was killed in a helicopter accident. The accident has a story of its own I was told.

Both Col. Rowe and Mr. Pearce agreed to go public, after meeting with Larkin Smith, to call for a full investigation into the events described in Col. Cutolo's affidavit. Both men died prior to the meeting with Smith.

On August 13, 1989, Larkin Smith Died in an airplane accident. Whatever he knew, I assume died with him….."

Freeper archy "…..PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE 101st CONGRESS WASHINGTON, SEPTEMBER 13, 1989

TRIBUTE TO LARKIN SMITH

Mr. COX. Mr. Speaker, I could not help but think when I was listening to the distinguished gentleman from Pennsylvania, that when he died and when a flag was draped over his coffin, there could have been no more suitable use of our American flag than to honor such a man.

If anyone who had known Larkin Smith, and I know many people watching on C-SPAN from Mississippi did know Larkin, as they worked to get him here, if these people had the opportunity to get to know Larkin Smith, he probably would have been their best friend. His office, as it turned out in our freshman class, was just down the hall from mine, and I used to drop in on him once in a while and he on me during the week. He had that infectious personality, that wry wit, genuine concern for others that is the mark of the truly likable person. As a result, he was a natural in politics. People just loved him, and so did we, all of us freshman classmates.

So the discovery, when we were on our August recess, that he had died in a plane crash, could not have come as a more hurtful shock to all Members, and we were scattered, his classmates, all over the country. Quickly, we were in telephone contact, and in the 7 1/2 months that we had been together, we had already grown close. This tragic occurrence brought Members even closer together still. For half a day, all we knew was that Larkin's single engine plane had disappeared, disappeared from radar screens about 9:25, on Sunday evening. It was not until the next morning that we found out, for certain, that he had hit a tree and he had been killed instantly in a small plane.

President Bush personally directed the personnel from Kessler Air Force Base in their ground search, and the Customs Service, with which Larkin used to work in drug interdiction. More than 500 people spread out in that effort, and each new detail and news report came as a surge of electricity to all. Of course, in the end, we found out Larkin was no longer to be here. Just 7 1/2 months after our journey started together, one of our fellows is gone, but this tragedy, I think, has brought all Members closer together than ever before.

We will all remember Larkin as someone who towered among the Members of this body. His beliefs were so strong, and his arguments in behalf of those beliefs so strong that each Member could not help but feel that we were proud to be part of Larkin's team. I think we have discussed tonight, and Members have heard about the series of 28 speeches that he began, because he was so discomfited as a member of the law enforcement community for 23 years, that up here on Capitol Hill we were setting up road blocks, getting in the way on the war on drugs and in this series of speeches he pointed out the more than 80 committees and subcommittees and task forces were hampering the efforts of our drug czar, Bill Bennett. I still remember the day he took the floor and challenged the Members, Members on both sides of the aisle, with the following words which I would like to quote verbatim.

"Mr. Speaker, with the recent introduction of the Administration's comprehensive crime bill, I would like to take this opportunity to issue a challenge to my distinguished colleagues on both sides of the aisle. It has become increasingly apparent that the war on drugs and crime cannot be fairly characterized as such. What we are currently waging is, at best, a public relations campaign. The war on drugs, in my opinion, has not even begun."

Mr. Speaker, imagine Larkin Smith, this big guy, this Mississippi county sheriff, standing out here and challenging all the Congress and saying this.

"We need to reduce the bureaucratic mire of 80-plus congressional committees overseeing the work of the drug czar into one single oversight committee. The lines of command need to be clearly drawn, and the battle plans must be laid. Congress has the opportunity to seize the offensive and to declare a sunset for the end of this war on drugs and crime.

"I urge my fellow soldiers not to grow weary, but to put on the full armor of battle. If we are serious about the scourge of drugs and crime in our nation, we would be advised to adopt General MacArthur's admonition to Congress in 1951, when he stated: In war, there is no substitute for victory."

Larkin, we are not going to grow weary. We will remember your words. We are going to fight on in your name and in your stead, all of us, the freshman Members of your class, and I hope and I know all of us here today hope and pray that we will be successful in those efforts because they meant so much to Larkin, to the people of Mississippi who sent him here and to all the people of America…."

http://www.sunherald.com/sherry/mafia/part7.htm Gene Swearington "……The election of Hobbs in 1971 had been heralded by many law officers as the beginning of a new era on the Coast. Recalling those days, a veteran state officer said recently: "When we heard on the radio that he had been elected, we cheered. " …… Hobbs' 12-year reign turned cut just as corrupt, if not more so, than those of his predecessors. Hobbs became a close associate and co-conspirator of such notorious Dixie Mafia figures as Jim Blackwell and D.J. Venus III, as well as a friend of New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello…….Before his last term was over, Hobbs would become the first Harrison County sheriff sentenced to prison……

Despite growing awareness that Hobbs was involved with the Dixie Mafia, he was re-elected twice. Even after he was indicted in 1983 on racketeering charges that included extortion, bribery, drug dealing and murder conspiracy, Hobbs won nearly 20 percent of the vote in his last election bid, the first that failed. That was two months before he pleaded guilty to racketeering. In May 1984, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Barbour sentenced Hobbs to 20 years and told the fallen officer: "You disgraced yourself and the law enforcement profession. You violated your public trust. You still want to five the high life and associate with high rollers even when facing your sentencing. You sold your soul to the devil." …….

In June 1983, six months into Hobbs' last year in office, a federal task force caught him as he waited for an airdrop of cocaine. The drugs were to be dropped from a plane onto a farm in north-central Harrison County. The farm was run by Hobbs' close friend, D.J. Venus III, a Dixie Mafia criminal and ex-bootlegger. What Hobbs and Venus and their cohorts did not know was that the airdrop was bogus. It was a sting set up by federal agents. They were so confident they were beyond the reach of the law that Hobbs' chief deputy, Craig Monroe, bragged about the deal a few hours before it was to take place……… Federal agents had been preparing Hobbs' downfall for five years. A confidential federal report on organized crime in Mississippi written in 1978 focused on Coast crime figures and officials who were doing little or nothing to curb them…..The report, which listed many associates within the Dixie Mafia and the Mafia, featured Hobbs prominently. ……. The document concluded that Hobbs would be "a vulnerable target for any 'strike force' type investigation.

The agents' observation was borne out early in 1982, when Hobbs turned but to be at the center of a plot to kill Larkin Smith, Gulfport chief of police, whom Hobbs feared would run against him in the next race for sheriff. Confidential informants close to Hobbs told federal agents that the sheriff and Salisbury were planning to assassinate Smith. One of the informants said that Hobbs told him that Smith would be "blown away" by Salisbury before July 4, 1982. ………

In 1983, a federal grand jury investigating the murder of Biloxi striptease joint owner Dewey D'Angelo heard testimony that revealed even more about Hobbs' corruption. James Edward Creamer, the contract hitman who confessed to murdering D'Angelo, testified that he was instructed to leave the body in Hobbs' jurisdiction. That way, Creamer said, Hobbs could protect the murder conspirators by controlling the investigation. The hitman's helper, Phillip Martin Hale Cryer, said that Hobbs collected $150 a week in payoffs from the striptease joint owners. Cryer worked in one of the joints, the Show Club. Cryer also told the grand jury about the Smith assassination plot. He testified that a few weeks after the D'Angelo murder, for which he was paid $5, 000 for his help, Creamer asked him if he wanted to take another contract. This one would pay between $50,000 and $60,000 because "There will be a lot of heat," Creamer said, according to Cryer. "Who was it?" a federal prosecutor asked. "Larkin Smith," Cryer replied. "Did (Creamer) ever tell you who wanted Larkin Smith killed, who had put the contract out?" the prosecutor asked. "Yeah. Leroy Hobbs, you know, because he wanted - I guess because of the election," he said '(Hobbs) can make that back in six months.' " Cryer said…….Creamer tesitifed that Salisbury was the one who ended up with the contract……..

Rapp was offered the contract on Larkin Smith at more than $100,000, Cryer testified. The men who put out the contract were the same ones who paid to have D'Angelo killed: Jim Blackwell and D.J. Venus, both Dixie Mafia members with strong ties to Hobbs. Cryer testified that Rapp was afraid to take the contract. Rapp was worried that he would be double-crossed by Hobbs, who would want to make a show of quickly finding and punishing Smith's killer. Cryer told the grand jury that Rapp said: "They're goign to find out what time I'm doing it, and the sheriff (Hobbs) will just run in right after that and blow me away."

The plot to kill Larkin Smith not only failed, it became one of the charges in a 28-count federal racketeering indictment handed down against Sheriff Hobbs in December 1983. The racketeering indictment superseded charges filed against Hobbs six months earlier for conspiring to import cocaine……."

Gene Swearingen "…..Since the 1960s, the Dixie Mafia has been exacting its own brand of swift justice and revenge, and dumping the results in ditches and woods and even in laundry sacks across the Southeast. While investigators are certain the slayings were Dixie Mafia "hits," few cases have ended in murder convictions. Few witnesses willing or able to testify have been available. These are some of those hits either identified as Dixie Mafia killings or suspected of being connected to the gang:

Pauline Pusser, 33 - Aug. 12, 1967. The wife of "Walking Tall" Sheriff Buford Pusser was killed in an ambush in McNairy County, Tenn., that blew away the bottom half of the sheriff's face. Pusser, who died in an automobile accident in 1974, was obsessed with bringing to vengeance the four ambushers and the man he learned had ordered the hit from a prison cell.

She was the wife of Dixie Mafia member Barry "Junior" Smith. At 11:50 p.m., White and Smith's wife drove up to the El-Ray Motel, on the outskirts of Corinth, Miss., and parked in front of Room 3. When White stepped out of the new green Chrysler, an assassin lying in wait on the motel roof put a bullet through White's head, killing him instantly. Junior Smith immediately confessed, saying he had killed White in self-defense. In White's hand was a gun, registered lo Shirley Smith. A jury acquitted Junior Smith. Investigators believe Smith had nothing to do with White's murder; they think it was a hit arranged by Pusser in revenge for his wife's death.

Harwell told Doyle that he wanted to meet with him to talk to him about the case and the trail and "some other things."……. Harwell died Thursday morning of a heart attack. He would have been a key witness in the wrongful death suit filed by the Branch Davidians' attorneys…."

Ralph Baker

Michael Whiteley 3/22/98 ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE "……A pickup truck and a four-wheeler were missing, but Ralph Baker had more on his mind than stolen vehicles when he set out around 6:15 on the rain-soaked Monday morning of his death. ……… He was deeply troubled by state and federal investigations of the Madison County sheriff's office he had run for more than a quarter-century and concerned by newspaper stories that flew against his reputation as a resolute and fearless lawman. He drowned before the sun was up that day, Jan. 5, apparently having misjudged the rising waters of the White River when he drove onto a low-water bridge near St. Paul. …….The death was so contrary to the nature and history of the 59-year-old sheriff that whispers of suicide or foul play colored gossip in the weeks that followed. …….. In December, the FBI had subpoenaed Baker's bank records amid questions surrounding nearly $500,000 in land purchases by the sheriff and his family. State auditors had been combing the records of the Madison County Drug Eradication Fund since November. And stories in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette had detailed allegations of corruption in the sheriff's office and flaws in the investigation of the unsolved 1994 murder of convenience store owner Billie Jean Phillips…….The investigation deals in part with the sheriff's office's handling of drug cases, and, in part, with financial deals that allowed Baker, his wife and two cousins to buy about 2,400 acres of land in Madison, Franklin and Washington counties with payments of $484,250. Nearly all the purchases were made in cash. ......And it eventually touched on Baker's relationship with the top official at an Arkansas financial institution swept up in the Whitewater investigation -- Gary W. Bunch, president of Madison Bank & Trust. …….. It was the Bank of Kingston when Jim McDougal, Jim Guy Tucker and four others bought it in 1980. One of the renamed bank's early loans was to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who needed $30,000 to build a model home at the Whitewater Development Corp., the project she and Bill Clinton co-owned with Jim and Susan McDougal along the White River in Marion County. Bunch was executive vice president at the time. ……And Bill Clinton, now the nation's chief executive, sent another letter. This one was read aloud for the 2,000 or so people who came for Baker's funeral in St. Paul High School's gymnasium. "Ralph Baker was a wonderful person ... a person who gave so much to his family and community" Clinton wrote. "I'll never forget the support he's given me since the beginning of my career." ………

http://www.ardemgaz.com/search%5Fweek/thu/edi/wopmoser8.html Last Article "… Well, Nick Wilson is going away to a cushy federal prison for 70 months. And the general public reaction is a yawn followed by a "what else is new" shrug in the face of one of the most crass and shocking displays of public official corruption this state has seen in many years. Our coarsened culture is now totally desensitized. As far as outrage goes, we're brain-dead. …….But there was still hope, until recently, that unabashed larceny by public officials against our state's poorest and unluckiest children would provoke a loud and lasting sense of horrified public outrage…….Well, you can forget about that. Moral outrage is declasse. The trendy swells and country-club liberals who personify the leadership of the Arkansas Democratic Party are already predicting that voters will not hold the party accountable for the fact that its heaviest hitters ran a scheme in which unfortunate children from broken homes were the carefully targeted victims…….Nick Wilson of Pocahontas, the cigar-chomping former state senator who once bestrode the Capitol like a colossus, was godfather of a racketeering ring in which he enlisted several of his toadies in Arkansas' upper legislative chamber, as well as various bureaucrats and political hangers-on. Two of their variations on three-card monte were schemes to defraud programs aimed at providing ad litem attorneys for children in custody cases and to siphon funds from child support enforcement efforts…….. There has been a steady stream of prosecutions for all forms of graft and malfeasance, much of it the peripheral fallout from Whitewater. The overall magnitude is, however, historic and mind-boggling. There have been only two presidents impeached in our nation's history, Clinton and Andrew Johnson. And in Clinton's case, much of the rest of his party in his home state turned out to be just as putrified as its now-departed leader……… Clinton's successor in the Governor's Mansion, Jim Guy Tucker, was promptly convicted of a felony and ridden out of office on a rail. So were Attorney General Steve Clark and Secretary of State Bill McCuen. Meanwhile, in a plea bargain announced last week, it was made known that Tommy Venters, former state Department of Education director, will be wearing a home detention "monitoring anklet" throughout the next year for his role in L'Affaire Nick……"

World Net Daily 6/12/00 "….. Tony Moser, a critic of the Arkansas Democratic Party political machine, was killed as he crossed a street in Pine Bluff 10 days after being named a columnist for the Democrat-Gazette newspaper and two days after penning a stinging indictment of political corruption in Little Rock. …… Moser, who was reportedly living in Pine Bluff, was a former editor of the Little Rock Free Press, a biweekly alternative newspaper, from which he resigned in 1995. Before that he wrote free-lance reviews for the Free Press as well as feature pieces for the Democrat-Gazette. Moser was associate editor of the now-defunct Little Rock alternative paper Spectrum from 1986 to 1988. He was a reporter and columnist at the Arkansas Democrat before that. His weekly column for the Democrat-Gazette began running June 1. His last column was published June 8. ……"

WorldNetDaily 6/13/00 Jon Dougherty "….A newspaper columnist critical of the Arkansas political machine was killed near his home in Pine Bluff after being struck by a pickup truck. ……. The accident occurred within days after his having penned a column naming names and leveling corruption charges against the state Democratic Party. ……. According to a Pine Bluff police report obtained by WorldNetDaily, Moser was walking alone along "unlit Rhinehart Road about 10:10 p.m." when he was struck by the driver of a 1995 Chevrolet pickup driven by Charles Mack Waters. By the time Waters saw Moser, the report said, it was too late to avoid hitting him. Pine Bluff police, who said they have already ruled out any "foul play," also said that the driver of the truck was neither intoxicated nor driving too fast. A blood alcohol test was performed on Waters, the police report said, but came back negative. Police have said no charges would be filed against Waters. ……… However, she did say that the local coroner told family members that it appeared as though Moser had just stepped off the curb before being hit. According to the police report and accident diagram obtained by WND, however, Moser's body came to rest in the middle of the street, with his right shoe slightly off the right side of the road about 10 feet away. Further, the police diagram shows Waters' vehicle parked across the center line upon the arrival of police officers, after hitting Moser. ...... Hill told WorldNetDaily that her mother took ill upon hearing of her son's death and is currently in critical condition at a local hospital. ….."

Pine Bluff Commercial 6/13/00 Chad Lawson "…….John Gilligan stared out into the dark, chaotic pace of Pine Bluff's Rhinehart Road late Saturday night, threw up his hands in frustration and silently wondered if all the "humanity" in the world had suspended above him in mid-air and disappeared. Gilligan, who recently located here with his family from Idaho, was the witness to the aftermath of a brutal accident that claimed the life of Anthony "Tony" Moser, 41, an established free-lance writer from Pine Bluff. Officials from the Pine Bluff Police Department report Moser was walking alone in the middle of Rhinehart Road when he was struck in the northbound lane by a pickup. ……. Police will file no charges against the driver, said Lt. Rick Pritzen, a spokesman for the Pine Bluff Police Department. "The motorist was not intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed," Pritzen said. …….. Gilligan said he and a co-worker, Mike Paulus, were pulling into a local business near the crime scene when they heard a loud "thud" while in their truck. After realizing Moser had been struck, both responded by running for help and placing calls to 9-1-1. "He was hurt pretty bad and I kept asking him if he was all right, but he didn't respond," Gilligan said. And even though the area was heavily populated at the time of the accident, Gilligan reported no one offered to help the victim. Moser reportedly died in Gilligan's arms as he and Paulus awaited an ambulance. "People didn't help," he said. "If there is a chance you can save somebody, you need to do it ... there's a humanity factor - if the same thing happened to me, that's what I'd want." ………Both Gilligan and Paulus said they relied on instinct and immediately ran to extend help to Moser. ……"

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 6/13/00 Chris Osher "……Two things pumped in the veins of Tony Moser to the bitter end: newspapering and drinking. The last week of his life he was doing both. After a long hiatus from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, he was back writing political columns. And he was drinking -- his slurred voice forcing one longtime friend to tell him to never bother telephoning drunk again. …… His sudden death was no surprise -- not to friends, not to colleagues, not even to the police…… The police had caught Moser wandering down the middle of the road many times. Police are still awaiting test results to reveal whether Moser had been drinking Saturday night. ……… Moser had talent, drive, confidence and ambition. He also could not stop drinking. …….. Moser went undercover to expose an illegal horse-racing operation in Faulkner County. He probed malfeasance at any and all levels of government. And one night, when tornado-f illed skies were so ominous no chartered plane would fly, Starr ordered Moser to drive 100 miles to cover when the FBI's most- wanted man shot it out to his death with law enforcement officers. Moser also was one of the most infuriating reporters to cross Starr's path. ......... He was sent to state prison after pleading guilty in 1984 to his fourth driving-while-intoxicated charge, the year after the law was strengthened. ……The man who could turn out a poignant tale about the death of a reporter suffering from AIDS also was the man who North Little Rock police arrested more than 20 times in the 1990s for charges related to public drunkenness. ……… Jim Scott, the North Little Rock Police Department's public information officer, had to make many of those arrests. He remembers Moser as a belligerent drunk. His 6-foot, 2-inch, 275-pound frame did not go gently to jail. …….. Moser, who once had helped Deering win awards by suggesting political cartoons, some so scathing that they had caused then-Gov. Bill Clinton to complain to the managing editor, was drunk. Again. Deering told him never to bother to call drunk again. ……… About 6:15 p.m. Saturday, Moser telephoned Linda Satter, the newspaper's federal court reporter. He told her he'd been working on his column since 6 a.m. Then, he shifted gears, quizzing Satter about whether she was taping the conversation. When she got off the telephone, he said he'd call again. That call never came. ……"

Freeper agrandis 6/15/00 "……I was in Arkansas when Clinton was in power, and I witnessed first-hand, up-front, and personal the Mafia that controls the politics of that state. Believe me, I know it is wise to question everything that happens in AR.

I was not saying we don't need more information about Moser's death, or that it isn't worth looking into. I was just pointing out that there may be a plausible explanation now as to why he was wandering down the middle of this road at night. If he had not been an alcoholic, it would be hard to explain what he was doing there in the first place.

I know this sounds weird, but I just don't "feel" this one as being a hit. I know that means nothing to you all, because you're not me, but some of these deaths I KNEW were going to look fishy, because I even predicted some of them to myself ahead of time (Ron Brown, Vince Foster, another FOB I knew in AR). I don't get that same feeling with this death. But again, I'm not saying this isn't worth investigating. If it looks like the whole thing is being shioved under the rug by the cops, then I would get suspicious.

Also, Moser not only wrote biting editorial pieces about Clinton and others, he had CONFRONTED Clinton at that basketball game and made him give him back his seat! I know King Clinton doesn't like that, and wouldn't doubt that he would kill over such a trivial insult. ……"

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 6/14/00 Paul Greenberg "…..A lot of people around the paper tried to warn me. Even if they hadn't, something told me that, when we decided to put Tony Moser back in the paper, this time as a columnist, we'd have our hearts broken. But not this way, Tony, not this way……. One always felt that way about Tony--that it was too late. Even when you were giving him another last chance. You wanted to believe that he'd stopped drinking, and so you convinced yourself it was true. Even then, you realize now, it was too late to stop. It's as if you'd been hearing those brakes squeal for years, and no matter what you did or didn't do, it would be too late. The awful thud was inevitable……."

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette 6/14/00 Paul Greenberg "…..Alcoholism is a disease, but that's not all it is. It's a slow drowning, a gradual suicide. It can take years. Wasted years. And talent is a terrible thing to waste. Last chance after last chance. We're angry with ourselves, too, Tony, for giving you all those last chances. Maybe if I'd confronted you instead, maybe this, maybe that . . . . It's all pointless speculation now, nothing but self-indulgence. And knowing that infuriates, too. …….. Nil nisi bonum is a long and honored tradition: Speak no ill of the dead. Maybe it's too much honored. May your sins, Tony, be forgiven as freely as we'd want our own wiped clean. But not to mention them seems a sin, too--a way of erasing your life, of escaping responsibility, and setting up the next victim. ….."

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE 6/14/00 Wally Hall "…..Tony Moser was the most talented and gifted writer I've ever known. He was also the most tragic figure I've ever known. With an IQ that was so far out there he could debate any subject, and usually either side. Tony, though, suffered from a terrible disease. One that destroys people and families. Tony was an alcoholic. He never met a drink he didn't like. …… "

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE MORRILTON -- Mark Cambiano, who gained a statewide reputation representing defendants in death penalty cases, asked a judge Wednesday to reinstate his law license, saying he never intended to commit a federal crime……..In 1998, Cambiano was convicted in U.S. District Court of causing a bank to file a cash transaction report lacking crucial information, and he received three years' probation. He failed to disclose that some of the money he deposited came from Willard "Frog Jumper" Burnett, a drug dealer convicted in a murder-for-hire scheme…….. Cambiano, 44, was originally indicted by a federal grand jury on 31 counts, including charges that he laundered more than $400,000 for Burnett. Cambiano agreed to a government offer that he plead guilty to one felony count, adding that he was concerned a jury might consist of people unsympathetic to attorneys……….Burnett received a 14-year sentence as a result of the investigation into his drug deals. He also received a 30-year sentence for conspiracy to commit capital murder when, in 1991, he arranged for the murder of David Cains of Pottsville. Cains was shot and killed in front of his children the day before he was to testify as a government witness in the trial of a Burnett relative……..When he deposited the $62,000, Cambiano said he chose not to disclose that some of it belonged to Burnett because Burnett owed money to another bank and was concerned the other bank would gain access to the funds. "In a small town like this, everything gets around," Cambiano said……."

JOHN I. MILLIS
Staff Director, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence

John Millis became Staff Director of HPSCI in 1997, at the beginning of the 105" Congress. He started work at HPSCI as a professional staff member in 1993 and became staff director of the Subcommittee on Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence in 1995- He served in that position until becoming full Committee staff director in 1997, excepting a six month period in late 1996 when he was asked to serve as the staff director of the Select Subcommittee on the United States Role in Iranian Arms Transfers to Croatia and Bosnia ("The Iranian Green Light Committee") of the International Relations Committee. In 1995-96, Mr. Millis also served as HPSCI staff liaison to the "Aspin-Brown" Commission reviewing the roles and capabilities of U.S. intelligence.

Prior to joining HPSCI, Mr. 'Millis served for 12 years in the CIA's Directorate of Operations. He entered the CIA in 1981 and served as an operations officer and in a variety of management functions in South Asia and North Africa from 1983 to 1991. From 1991 through 1992 Mr. Millis served as the Director of Central Intelligence's liaison officer to the leadership of the National Security Agency at Ft. Meade, Maryland. Within NSA, he also functioned as the Executive Assistant to the Deputy Director.

Mr. Millis was born in New Mexico in 1953. He graduated from Wake Forest University (magna cum laude) in 1975. He attended graduate school at the University of Chicago and Banaras Hindu University, India. He received an M.A. and Ph.D- (with distinction) from Chicago in 1978 and 1983, respectively. In 1978-79 he was a fellow of the American Institute of Indian Studies.

The late John Millis Speech, CIRA Luncheon, October 5, 1998--

"Right now, well less than half of the pictures taken by our satellites ever get looked at by human eyes or by any sort of mechanized device or computerized device detecting change. Under this new system we will increase anywhere between five and fifteen times the number of pictures that will be taken from the sky. We have fewer imagery analysts than we had five years ago; we have many fewer than we had ten years ago. And there is at present no plan to build up an imagery analytic capability to deal with this new collection. It's a mindset. People get fixated on hardware. We're trying to change that mindset.

....

In the past, technology has been the friend of NSA, but in the last four or five years technology has moved from being the friend to being the enemy of SIGINT. You know Moore's law says that computation technologies change every eighteen months; in telecommunications, the pace is more rapid than that. There are 2 couple of problems in the SIGINT collection crisis. It gets classified very quickly, but let me suggest to you a couple of ideas to think about.

....

Further, a revolution is coming in imagery. ADM Dantone, the first Director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), had a very good illustration of that revolution. He said, "Picture two large TV screens behind me. On one is an incredibly detailed picture from space showing one meter or less resolution of a desert. You can see tank tracks; you can see tanks; you can see ammo depots; you can see where communications lines have been laid down; you can see communications towers; you can see where headquarters have been set up; you can see what the direction of movement is. It's everything that you needed to know back in 1991-92, when we were going up against Saddam Hussein. The other screen is blank. That's what Saddam Hussein had."

From the Wilderness, New York Times (via Progressive Review) 6/6/00 Michael ruppert MILLIS' "UNUSUAL" ACTIVITIES COVERED BY FTW IN MARCH, 2000 ISSUE Millis, in unprecedented style for a Congressional staffer, made volatile and highly critical comments about the performance of former CIA Director John Deutch and President Bill Clinton in a February 18,2000 interview with "Washington Post" reporter Vernon Loeb. Loeb is one of the Post's primary intelligence beat reporters and regarded by FTW as being a conduit for CIA "inspired" stories. In a lengthy article covering the back story behind allegations that former CIA Director (DCI) John Deutch, a Clinton Democratic appointee, had misused CIA computers at his home, Loeb included a series of quotes from Millis that FTW noted were unusually candid. The remarks merit inclusion in their entirety.

Loeb wrote, " Over on the other side of the Capitol this week, the chief staffer of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, former CIA operations officer John Millis, proclaimed Deutch the worst CIA director ever. "Asked at a public lecture at the Smithsonian Tuesday night to rate the various directors of Central Intelligence, Millis said Deutch now takes 'first, second and third prize,' adding that he did 'major damage' to the CIA's Directorate of Operations."

Loeb included additional quotes from Millis praising current DCI George Tenet but closed his story with the following passage: "Where Tenet hasn't done as well, Millis said, is coordinating the overall affairs of the 13-agency intelligence community. But Millis blamed that shortcoming on a lack of support by President Clinton, whom Millis ranked as one of the worst presidents when it comes to support of, and regard for, the intelligence community."

From the Wilderness, New York Times (via Progressive Review) 6/6/00 Michael ruppert FTW noted in the March issue that such on-the-record quotes by a senior Congressional staffer, in an apparently pre-arranged news story, were highly unusual. Statements of strong opinion are usually reserved for elected Members of Congress. …….FTW finds the timing of Millis' death, especially in proximity to the close-out of HPSCI's investigation of CIA's drug connections, both suspicious and worthy of additional investigation before the trail grows cold and leads become hard to find or deliberately obscured. ….."

The buzz in the Washington intelligence community is that Millis was being blackmailed. Some are surprised that his death hasn't set off alarm bells. Even if the death was as claimed, a suicide, any unusual death of someone so knowledgeable about U.S. national security is typically treated with great concern. ……For example, Millis could have been a target of a foreign intelligence agency. The fact that Millis' death, considering his high position, has drawn so little attention has some spooks scratching their heads. …….The 47-year-old Millis was a veteran CIA operations officer. He left the CIA in 1993 to join the House Intelligence Committee. In 1996, Millis had investigated and uncovered the Clinton administration's role in helping Iran transfer arms to Bosnian Muslims.

CounterPunch 3/1/95 Vol 2 No 5 Ken Silverstein & Alexander Cockburn "…… Beginning in the closing years of Clinton's gubernatorial career in Little Rock and pressed by President Bill's White House adviser, Mack McLarty, the scheme is now nearing the point of no return. A cowed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already bestowed millions on the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, whose prime function will be to ferry Tyson chickens to Japan and offer a hub for Wal-Mart's vast commercial operations. "From day one, and especially since Clinton was elected president, backers have boasted that they have a commitment from the federal government to build the airport," John Lisle, a lawyer who represents some of the families who would be displaced by the project, says. "They don't disclose the nature of that commitment, but they're absolutely confident that the project will be approved." ………Planning for the airport began in mid-1990, when local powerbrokers quietly formed the Northwest Arkansas Council (NAC), a private group promoting regional development. ……..A secretive outfit, the NAC has been demure about detailing its activities or even disclosing its membership. Jim Blair, a charter member of the group - and also the lawyer for Tyson Foods, a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the man who handled the latter's commodity trades - once described the Council as a "self-appointed ad hoc committee" comprised of people "who feel they can do something for the area because the area has been good to them and they essentially want to put something back into it." Like Blair, most of the Council's founders had been long-time political supporters of Bill Clinton. …….. The Council's first order of business was to pressure local government bodies - city councils, municipal boards, quorum courts - to join the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport Authority (NARAA), a quasi-public agency established to oversee the airport program. …..Links between the Council and the Authority are intimate. ……..The Authority's original feasibility study - conducted with a grant from the Department of Transportation - showed that its own founders stood to reap windfall profits if the airport were constructed. According to the study, the biggest winners would include: ……
* Major poultry firms, including Tyson Foods, Hudson Foods, and Peterson Industries, all whom helped found the NAC. …...

If these two case studies aren't enough, there is the mysterious disappearance of Jeremy Crocker, a 61-year-old engineer and dedicated TWA 800 investigator. Crocker was last seen Dec. 9 at the downtown Los Angeles library where he did much of his research on the crash. He never returned to his Hollywood home, and police and family members have found no trace of him other than two possible sightings a couple days after he vanished. Crocker's two sons believe his disappearance may be connected to the July 17,1996 crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island, either that he could have become frightened by what he learned in his research and vanished voluntarily, or that he could have been killed to prevent him from sharing his findings. It should be noted that Crocker also believed a projectile knocked the airliner from the skies. He then created mathematical models and studied the aerodynamics of the crash. He had previously worked for private firms that held contracts with the Air Force and NASA in the late 1960s, having been flown to airline disasters to study the impact of crashes on the human body for research. In other words, Crocker can be legitimately labeled "an expert" in this field. Considering the possibility that he may have been kidnapped, you'd think the FBI would try to help finding him, but apparently they're too busy hunting down stolen fabric from airline seats.

Konformist Bits: 13 January 1998 Part II

…..Date: Saturday, January 3, 1998 5:41:13 PM From: igoddard@erols.com Subj: JEREMY CROCKER'S LAST WORDS

I just acquired a tape of Jeremy Crocker, the disappeared TWA Flight 800 researcher and missile theorist, speaking on the Peter Ford Show (12/04/96) just five days before he disappeared. Crocker's family believes that there may be a connection with his disappearance and his focused research into the crash of TWA 800. …….

Listening to Jeremy Crocker I hear a man who is calm and collected, mild mannered, objective, and intelligent. It is clear that he is a careful thinker who does not make wild off-the-cuff truth claims. He believed that TWA 800 was shot down with a missile, but never states directly whose missile he thinks it was. I get the feeling from that that he had not made up his mind exactly who fired the missile. He does say that he thinks it was not a small missile and that in the effort to discover the truth, contacts in the military are needed.

I do not type fast, so transcribing from tape is a pain- fully slow process for me. I have therefore not taken the time to transcribe everything said and the only speaker I've transcribed is Crocker. The portions of Crocker I've not transcribed had to do with the crash of KAL 007 and some minor chit-chat with a few callers. Nothing from that untranscribed discourse leads to any insights into his TWA 800 research. Some sentences may not read right, but I've transcribed them as they were spoken. ===================================================== LAST PUBLIC WORDS OF JEREMY CROCKER ================

These are some of the last publicly stated words of disappeared TWA Flight 800 researcher Jeremy Crocker speaking on the Peter Ford Show, KIEV Radio 12/4/96:

JEREMY CROCKER: I contribute to KIEV my presence here because it was questions on the Ray Bream show and others and particularly his guests such as Captain Richard Russell who brought out the questions that I've spent several months trying to answer.

PETER FORD reads from Ron Lewis's Air Forces Monthly report, citing the terrorist fax.

JEREMY CROCKER: I think I could add something on that. The London Telegraph covered some of that activity in the Middle East particularly because some terrorist camps had been established around Tehran and were seen from U.S. satellites, and it looked like the U.S. was going to have a pretext there for an attack on Iran at that time. I would guess that they did not have the evidence to show that Iran was at the root of the TWA crash is the reason for not doing it.

PETER FORD speaks about Nov 18 report of streaks of light seen by Pakistani pilots off Long Island.

JEREMY CROCKER: Yes, on that one Peter keep in mind on the Ray Bream Show earlier in the week had an expert in the field, Captain Richard Russell. And I have been privy to something that came by another airline captain, a flight going from FLL, which is probably a Florida origin, to BOS, which is Boston, was headed for Providence at 33,000 feet and was crossing over the course of the Pakistani airliner at the time it made that report, so you have two credible sources.

CALLER says he thinks TWA 800 investigation is a coverup, citing FBI and NTSB relations.

JEREMY CROCKER: Well I think particularly the 23 of the month, I forgot which month, maybe it was August, quite an analysis by Joe Sexton in the New York Times in which he analyzed the interior of the investigation and it supports your conclusion that there's something fishy there with the way the organization is constructed.

PETER FORD speaks about the shows plan.

JEREMY CROCKER: Could I speak to that and sort of sketch out the picture which we have and also the places were there are holes and invite listeners to fill those holes?

First we'll talk about the things that did not bring down the airliner, contrary to what you may have heard from the frequent press conferences at Calverton Long Island. It wasn't a bomb, it wasn't a bomb for several reasons. Not only were there no appreciable amounts of explosives recovered, and you heard from Rodney [Stich] that it takes a couple hundred pounds to take the nose off a plane that has a 20 foot diameter fuselage and has to fly at Mach .86 and all the forces that that requires. So that we can throw out.

Then secondly it wasn't the fuel tank, which had no fuel in it, it never has fuel when crossing the Atlantic, it has a center fuel tank for trans-pacific flights only.

So then we come down to a missile. It wasn't a small missile because small missiles go right through planes. And there's an Aviation Week study which shows some 25 airliners have been hit by missiles over a period between 1978 I think through '94. So we need to have people who have contacts in military, in aviation, and particularly, as we'll talk about a little later, in foreign countries; there's been some interesting things that have happened in the way of cover-ups in Italy and Korea indirectly.

……PETER FORD reads a Jerusalem Post report on French Intelligence sources who say it must have been a U.S. military missile and the U.S. will never admit it.

CROCKER: If I could interject something, you mentioned the French, and the French have been quite helpful on this, because they have quite a few people that have been victims of the TWA crash. The quote that you gave us from the Jerusalem Post originated with French sources, and we can look overseas for perhaps an investigation that is not clouded by U.S. interests.

PETER FORD talks. Presents closing question: Is there any hope to sleuthing this thing out, or where is this all this going?

CROCKER: I have great faith in thinking Americans and in thinking people of Europe in particular because these are people I've heard from [ words I can't decipher ], and people also in Britain who do understand these things probably with a subtlety we don't, that governments lie and people have to figure it out despite their lies.

== END OF CROCKER INTERVIEW ========================= ......

THE DARK SIDE

A recent airing of TV's Hard Copy discussed the mysterious disappearance of Jeremy Crocker, a "renowned engineer" who had become obsessed with the TWA explosion. Crocker, a Palm Springs resident, had become convinced, after much research, that the government was hiding the truth and he was determined to find it.

Crocker's son Jonathan said his father was "somewhat of a crusader. He wanted people to be accountable and honest and he felt that wasn't happening. He was willing to dig for evidence that might point fingers."

Crocker's work had come to the notice of Peter Ford, a Los Angeles radio host. Just five days before his disappearance, he had been a guest on Ford's program where the subject was TWA 800. Ford indicated that Jeremy Crocker was "absolutely convinced that there was a lot of foul play involved" in the downing of TWA Flight 800.

Continuing his research on December 9, 1996, Crocker traveled to Los Angeles where he put some of his current findings into an envelope and mailed them to Ford. That was the last anyone has heard from Jeremy Crocker. "The dark side theory would be that he was taken out. That someone, somewhere felt he was a threat", said Ford. The Crocker family is still searching, but police have never found a trace. They say he simply vanished. (Hard Copy, November 27,1997).

Cecil Boren

Arkansas Democrat Gazzette 1/14/00 Cathy Frye "…..VARNER Two correctional officers were fired early this week because they didn t follow policies that would have kept murderer Kenneth Williams from sneaking out of the Cummins Unit in October, prison officials said Thursday. And two other officers have been put on a year s probation because they didn t tell their supervisors that someone had called the unit at 3 p.m. on the day of Williams escape to report that the killer had been seen in Pine Bluff. His disappearance wasn t noticed until 6 p.m. during the evening head count. ……. But the neighbor who found Boren s body that Sunday morning was indignant. Kay McLemore, daughter of a former Cummins Unit officer, discovered Boren after his wife came home from church and found that her home appeared to have been broken into and her husband was missing. Boren s body was outside, near where his truck was normally parked. McLemore said Thursday that the firings were a good decision, but more people should be held accountable for Williams escape.. …… McLemore also said she finds it strange that Williams didn t bother to stop at any houses he might have passed before reaching the Borens and no motorists noticed him creeping across open farmland. She strongly implied that Boren s death result from his discussing with a reporter the problems that the Department of Correction once had with its plasma unit. Canadian hemophiliacs have long contended that they contracted hepatitis C from tainted plasma taken from Arkansas and Louisiana prisons during the mid-1980s. Boren, who once worked at the Cummins Unit as an assistant warden, referred the reporter to Correction Department Director Larry Norris in the summer of 1999, McLemore said. We re not accusing anyone of retaliation, she said. He was contacted. He referred them to Larry Norris. But McLemore also implied that Williams was let out on purpose and his selection of Boren s home was no accident. Denouncing this theory, Tyler said, The thought of this being a deliberate and planned conspiracy is not only ridiculous, it s absolutely nauseating. Absolutely nauseating. ……"

ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE 1/23/01 Cathy Frye "….. The state Claims Commission has proposed awarding $306,350 to the family of a Grady man killed last year by a prison escapee. That's about a third of what was requested by the slain man's relatives, who contended at a December hearing before the commission that $950,000 would compensate them not only for 57-year-old Cecil Boren's lost income but also for the mental anguish they have suffered over the manner of his death…….. Their recommendation now goes to lawmakers, who could approve it, suggest a new amount or decide damages shouldn't be awarded at all………Once the issue is before the Legislature, the Department of Correction is expected to appeal the Claims Commission's ruling that the prison system should be held liable for Boren's death……Williams, 21, was serving a sentence of life without parole for the murder of a university cheerleader when he sneaked out of the Cummins Unit in a hog-slop tank that fall Sunday morning. He crept through several miles of irrigation canals and bayous until he reached the Borens' isolated, rural home. Williams killed Boren after ransacking the house and stealing the change of clothes, guns and other items needed to continue his getaway……"

AP 12/16/00 "....... STAR CITY, Ark. A widow planning a wrongful death lawsuit against the state prison system is seeking a ruling on whether she can have access to state files on the escaped prisoner who allegedly killed her husband. ....... Attorneys for Floy Gene Boren, widow of Cecil Boren, asked the Lincoln County Circuit Court to determine whether the files regarding Kenneth D. Williams are exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests. Mrs. Boren plans to sue the state Department of Correction. ...... Officials say Williams escaped in a slop tank being hauled from the prison kitchen to the unit's hog farm. Once the tank was outside the gate, Williams climbed out, sneaked along a tree line and eventually made it to the Grady home of Boren, 57, officials say. Williams, who was convicted in September for capital murder and attempted capital murder, was arrested Oct. 4 in Missouri, driving Boren's truck. Williams also allegedly made telephone calls from Boren's cellular phone the day of the escape. ...... Two prison guards were fired and two others at Cummins were placed on probation Jan. 10 in connection with Williams' escape. The state police investigation also is primarily finished, according to state police Lt.

"There were no signs of foul play -- no gunshot wounds, nothing."..... McCuen's body was found face down in the bayou. Baker's body was found on the water's edge a short distance away, with his feet partially in the water.......Baker was a captain at the Cummins prison unit near Grady, operated by the state Department of Correction. McCuen was a self-employed plumber...."

EMMETT GEORGE ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE "......A 30-foot section of aluminum pipe and overhead power lines offered a clue to what killed two men who went rabbit hunting Tuesday in a wooded area east of Dumas......."I thought about it and thought about it," Desha County Sheriff Don Smith said Friday. "Then I got a call from the medical examiner's office this morning. They said they were electrocuted." The early morning call ended speculation about what caused the deaths of Keith Baker, 42, of Grady and Clodis McCuien, 62, of Pine Bluff....... "I don't know if they were trying to shake out a rabbit or what, but they got into some wires," Smith said, explaining that the wires led to a water pump in a well on a nearby farm.

The Associated Press 12/27/00 Steve LeBlanc "…..The slayings of seven people at an Internet company has prompted calls for restricted weapons access in a state that already has the toughest gun laws in the country. Michael McDermott, 42, allegedly gunned down employees at Edgewater Technology Inc. in Wakefield with a semiautomatic rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun prosecutors say he didn't have permits for. While authorities say they are not sure how McDermott obtained the weapons, some lawmakers are already pushing measures to further restrict access to guns. ….."

Freeper bvw "…… Summarized and rewritten based on a report from the Washington Post 2 Dec 2000 obit: ……. Robert G. Damus of Vienna, Virginia, was 55 when he died Nov. 29 of a heart attack. He left his office, collapsed and was pronounced dead at GWU Hospital. He was general counsel of the OMB, having joined the OMB in 1985 (Reagan's years) as assistant geneal counsel, then promoted to deputy general counsel, and in 1994 to general counsel. He was not a political appointee, a rare circmstance for a general counsel in such an imporatnt position. …….. President Clinton said he was "deeply saddened" by the death of Mr. Damus: ……."This Administration and the American people benefited greatly from his keen judgment and wise counsel, and he served my two predecessors with the same loyalty, dedication and commitment to excellence. . . . "

Freeper aristeides "…… Given Damus's age, he would have graduated from Harvard in 1968 or 1969. Presumably the list of schools in the obituary is in chronological order, and he would have gone directly from Harvard to Cambridge. He would then have gone to Harvard Law School for three years. Note that the obituary says he started his legal career in England in 1973. Very odd that he should have gone back to England if in fact he had returned to the States to study law. I wonder what the story is there. I suppose it's possible he went to Cambridge after Harvard Law, but I think that's considerably less likely. But that mention of 1973 means that he almost certainly graduated from Harvard College in 1968, not 1969. I guess, on consideration, 1967 is also possible. ……… Note here is another Vietnam-era Ivy League graduate who somehow escaped military service. And note that his time in England overlapped Clinton's by at least one year, and probably two years. ………. Since Damus was at Cambridge, not Oxford, he cannot have been a Rhodes Scholar. I wonder if he was a Marshall Scholar like myself (I got to Oxford four years after my own graduation in 1968, because I had to do military service -- otherwise I might have met these guys.) ….."

Derwin Brown

ajc.com 1/4/01 Don Plummer and Ben Smith ".......In their first formal public statements since the day after the assassination of DeKalb County's sheriff-elect last month, investigators Wednesday said Derwin Brown apparently was slain with a banned automatic pistol....... Also Wednesday, the man who replaced Derwin Brown as sheriff, interim Sheriff Thomas Brown, identified the four deputies he fired during his first hour on the job Monday. ....... The four, among 38 employees who had been targeted for firing by Derwin Brown, included a former major who once gave reserve badges to three men later accused of extortion and a sheriff's deputy who the interim sheriff said had logged excessive overtime. ........ Derwin Brown, a DeKalb police captain who spent 22 years with the department, was gunned down in his driveway Dec. 15 as he returned from a party celebrating his completion of sheriff's training. Authorities have said 16 shots were fired and that he was hit 11 times. Thomas Brown called the shooting an assassination. ...... With 34 full-time investigators on the case representing the DeKalb County Police Department, the FBI, GBI, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the State Crime Lab, the search for the killer has become the "largest commitment of resources and personnel since the 1980s case of the missing and murdered children in Atlanta," Jones said. ........ Jones said Wednesday that ballistics investigators have linked the slaying to "a 9 mm automatic machine pistol," a type of weapon now banned but considered the gun of choice for drug dealers in the 1980s and among the type of weapons used in the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado. ......The weapon authorities seek in the Derwin Brown murder is a type of machine pistol manufactured in at least five configurations and under a variety of names. The guns were made by A.A. Arms of Monroe, N.C., or Intratec of Miami. ..... They were banned by federal authorities in 1994. ..... The weapon is larger than a standard-issue police handgun, Jones said. She described the gun as having a 12-inch barrel, a 4 1/2-inch handle and a "large capacity" magazine. ....."

The mass shooting at Edgewater by McDermott and its possible relationship to PROMIS/Alltel/Stephens' Sytematics. Was McDermott involved in the military's MKULTRA psyops operations?

http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3a526d8f583e.htm

Freeper Frostire ".....The matter of where to start is tricky beause it started before Free Republic was a gleem in JimRob's eye, and long before the advent of the internet except for military use. Before that, PEOPLE were used. Used in ways that would turn your hair white if it isn't already. MKUltra was a Playskool project intentionally used to make much of what was going on seem so implausible it would never be believed.......

When it was announced merely a couple of months ago that the Mafia was hip deep in Wall Street skimming millions of dollars from pension funds and making money from bogus government contracts, including the theft of thousands of barrels of oil from OUR reserves, sold directly by bill clinton, nary a squeal of outrage from the public was detected by any of us. Sometimes it makes us wonder what in G-d's name we keep fighting for when no one seems to care.

We watch while friends of ours have either been killed, died, or simply given up. Some of us have been chased, not just from town to town, but from state to state, and country to country. We are asked over and over why we take some of the chances we take when there seems to be so few who care and so many odds to overcome. We dare to dream that there are more than just the few loud ascenting voices we hear from time to time. Our senses tell us that often the silence is confusion and fear. So a voice here, a voice there, in an ear who hears does more good than attracting the stonethrowers and screeching liars that are determined to outshout us and use their false piety by what has come to be known as deconstruction of thoughts and memes to replace the truth with a *version* of their truths. Sounds right, but it's all wrong.

Here is how it has been done. Take a deep breath because this will make some people very angry. You will either hate me, call me a bigot, or some damn thing, but believing is tough...UNLESS you examine it from every possible angle and realize that the logic is almost perfect. The script they followed is one that has already been written and moved in exactly this way before, but has NEVER come this close to becoming reality.

I have just heard that the Pentagon has announced that they can no longer protect American troops overseas because of our limited intelligence gathering resources. They say that means more attacks like the one on the USS Cole, and you all know damn well what I think of that. Anyone who believes that *announcement* is out of their mind and should be shot.

What we have going is a scripted ballet. The world is being herded like sheep straight into Biblical Armageddon. We are watching the ChiComs. We are watching the least among us being left, indeed even encouraged, to allow their own continents to die from the rot within. Africa is dying, along with most of its population, neglected and without compassion.

McDermott is a tecker, and he is a very good soldier. Do not think otherwise.

..... Bush is picking a devastating war cabinet. He plans to give the dems NOTHING. Clinton has taken a bite of the apple Bush handed him. He underestimated him and showed ALL of his cards. Now Bush is allowing him to hang. clinton will not be happy and it might be THAT weakness that allows us to tie clinton's shoe laces together. ......More tomorrow. ....."

"......Some of the rest of my post is filed for later. Sometimes, like when this thing with McDermott happened, the whole thing passes in front of my eyes like a movie. It didn't surprise me. He had found me because I had tried to get a copy of my college transcripts using my real name after dropping off the face of the earth. I thought I was pretty safe. It was before I started posting here again by about a little less than 2 years. He managed to find my unpublished telephone number and my address. He sent emails with mystic poetry he said he wrote. He called and spoke very softly, hardly ever allowing emotion into his voice. He spoke softly and very carefully.

Many of the same things that were in articles about him were exactly the things he told me at the time...i.e., he didn't have any money. He couldn't pay his bills. His car was always breaking down. But while he was tracking me, I was tracking him. He was pretty good about forging email addresses and bouncing them from remote servers, or sending emails to somewhere else and having them rerouted. He was very good with computer engineering and software, but he was too somber and he gave me the creeps. At one point, he said that if he had an enemy anywhere in the world, he would never stop until he got revenge. His analogy was that he would use a nuke to kill a mosquito. I then refused to answer my phone and he would call about every 5 minutes. He filled up my voicemail repeatedly. But he always called on a computer line and different states would show up on my caller ID, including California, Ontario, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, Texas, Nevada, New York, Delaware, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Utah, Arizona, and Massachusetts. He made tech jokes about renewing his *hack* license. Then my car was stolen. I never got it back. He kept calling leaving hints. The State Police were involved then...but could never trace the calls. This went on for weeks and finally, one day, there he was. I would not open my door and finally he left...but he left a bag of stinking dirty clothes on my porch. There was a message on my voicemail that he left the clothes for me to wear so I could smell him on my body. I reported it to the police, got my number changed, and looked for a place to move. Got as far away as I could from where I was, but the police never took it seriously since he didn't try to break in and there was no proof that he stole my car. There was also no such address as the one he said was his either.

A few months ago, he thought he got a lead on me through someone near where I used to live because of an ad placed online about a truck for sale. His schtick was always to drive an older vehicle. When he showed up at my house, he was driving an older model Chevy, pretty dirty. He had seen this ad and because it was from a town near where I used to live, and he called about it. He left his name and his location, and a return number...in MA. When J called him back, he casually inquired if J knew me. Since he did happen to be a friend of mine, and by some miracle had been at my house the day the guy showed up, the red flags went up. J told him no. Then J called me and let me listen to his answering machine.

That was right around the time I had just started posting here again. At the time it first happened, the State Police had not had training in this kind of computer stalking. They had not a clue what I was talking about that someone could make a call and if they knew their stuff, that call could come from literally anywhere including mobile phone numbers that belonged to others who weren't using their phones at the time so that the calls looked local.

Anybody who has ever read the book, *Dune*, knows what a hunter-seeker is. Those are the words that came into my head forever after that episode. His eyes reminded me of a picture I saw once of Grigori Rasputin. You can't imagine the gamout of emotions that I still haven't been able to shake. Everything he ever did was done with purpose. This is not the kind of man that would just suddenly flip out and start shooting people unless he was supposed to...and some people I had once known are no longer around to tell the tales of the world within the world. At least two of them died near or in Yosemite. One died in Ojai. One, a fighter pilot, hit the effing side of a mountain and we still don't know why. Some friends in the west have taken to the Local Reservation. These guys are not in the Downside Legacy, but they should be. I've lost one of my best friends in Columbia, 2 in Chiapas, and another, a woman, in Israel...that had nothing to do with what is happening now, and she was not Jewish. She was Palestinian and we worked together in California. She went where she thought she would be safe. After she left, before I could finalize my own plans to leave, my six year old son died for no reason they could ever find. No marks, no illness, no nothing. He went to sleep.

None of this tells you why. But it tells you part of the reason for my abject hatred and some of the reason for why I seem to be going off the edge at times. This rage started with bill clinton and hillary clinton when I worked in DC, even though I had been involved with the government for almost as long as I can remember...not by choice, but by being my father's daughter. I lived in Alexandria, had finally made my peace with a situation that I had no control over, at least physically, when hell came calling. And if you think anything you have seen me post has been a tad shaky, you should see some of the stuff I didn't post. ......"

"......It occurs to me that there are some very obvious things being missed as these threads continue. For every technology, there is anti-technology. Weapons and eyes that tech has enabled can be just as easily disabled. There will be no nuclear war. There will be no high tech war. It will be fought on your front porch. Best you remember. The mere push of a button or the destruction of one can shut off your electricity, your water, and unless you can survive without being pampered, you will die.

What you see happening in Israel is a warning to the world that when war comes, and it will, it will be on YOUR own turf. That is why the great open spaces are being closed to the public. They intend to have us in our caves, not hiding in trees. We have been systematically herded like cattle towards the coasts and densely populated areas to be contained and controlled......"
