 The Scarlet A:  Links between the Anthrax Attacks and 9/11 
by Barbara Honegger 
The author is a Senior Military Affairs Journalist, and former White House Policy Analyst and Special Assistant to the Assistant to the President in the first Reagan Administration. Ms. Honegger is the author of the 9/11 expose “The Pentagon Attack Papers” http://physics911.net/pdf/honegger.pdf and October Surprise (Tudor, 1989), the first book to reveal the true origins of the Iran side of the Iran/Contra scandal.

By insisting that Bruce Ivins, a biowarfare scientist then with the Army’s Ft. Detrick laboratory, was behind the anthrax attacks, the Bush Administration has officially acknowledged that those attacks were perpetrated by a U.S. Government insider -- and not by bin Laden or by Iraq. 
Likewise, compelling evidence (1) has demonstrated that the mass murders of 9/11 themselves were perpetrated or enabled by U.S. Government insiders. And while it is well known that President Bush has admitted Iraq was not behind Sept. 11, it is less widely known that bin Laden has never been wanted by the FBI for 9/11 on the agency’s ‘Most Wanted Terrorists’ web page. FBI Director Mueller and his chief investigative spokesman, Rex Tomb, have publicly stated that the reason bin Laden isn’t officially wanted for 9/11 is because there is “no hard evidence” linking him to the Sept. 11 plot. (2) 
Because the Administration has thus admitted the anthrax attacks were perpetrated by a U.S. government insider -- and Sheila Casey and Barry Kissin have shown in the Sept. 2008 issue of The Rock Creek Free Press that they were a true inside job by the CIA (and DIA) and its contractor Battelle Memorial Institute, not a ‘lone nut’ rogue (3) -- if significant evidence links the insider anthrax attacks to 9/11, we can reasonably infer that the same government/military insiders were behind both mass crimes. 
So what is the evidence linking anthrax to Sept. 11? 
1) Whatever insiders wrote the letters mailed with the anthrax wanted you to believe they were linked to 9/11. As is well known, the date hand written on the anthrax letters is Sept. 11, 2001. Though the official story -- that the first letter, to Florida photo journalist Bob Stevens, wasn’t mailed until after 9/11 and so anthrax wasn’t part of the actual 9/11 plot -- it’s clear that whoever wrote and dated the letters and added the super-weaponized (3) U.S. military anthrax wanted you to believe there is a direct connection, and that Islamic foreigners were responsible for both. 
2) Superweaponizing anthrax was one of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld’s top priorities. Two days before  9/11, on Sept. 9, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) held a rare press conference in which it revealed that on his first day as Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld ordered the DIA to take Project Jefferson, a secret and illegal anthrax weaponization program (probably using the Ames strain contained in the anthrax letters) to the next level of lethality and that it had achieved ‘success’ earlier that month in a classified field test. The mainstream press reported this event on Sept. 10, the day before 9/11.

3) Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's Office of Emergency Management (OEM) preplanned a bio/chem-terrorism exercise likely involving an anthrax scenario for which personnel were in New York City on 9/11, and Giuliani's just-recent OEM director urged White House staff to go on anti-anthrax Cipro on Sept. 11. Giuliani testified to the 9/11 Commission that his Office of Emergency Management (OEM) had scheduled a bio/chem-terrorism response exercise, called TRIPOD II, to begin the day after 9/11, Sept. 12. But personnel who were to take part in the exercise were already in New York City on Sept. 10th and OEM personnel were cleared out of their WTC7 offices on Sept. 11 and moved to the exercise command center on a New York pier and thus conveniently out of the building when it was brought down by military-grade thermate explosives on 9/11 -- controlled demolition charges that required weeks to pre-place, the very weeks the exercise was being planned. New Jersey’s Ft. Monmouth, an Army base just across the water from the Twin Towers, also held a ‘II’ exercise, called TIMELY ALERT II, on 9/11 (4), almost certainly coordinated with Giuliani’s TRIPOD II, further evidence that the latter was also scheduled to begin on Sept. 11. 
   The then recent director of Mayor Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management, Jerome “Jerry” Hauer -- a bio-warfare expert and one of the signers of the pre-9/11 Project for a New American Century manifesto calling for “a new Pearl Harbor” (such as 9/11) who had been a central player in scripting the TRIPOD II bio-chem attack scenario exercise -- was an expert in the response to building collapses (5) and managing director of Kroll Associates before and on 9/11, the company that managed the WTC7 OEM ‘bunker’ and provided ‘security’ for the World Trade Center, including all three buildings brought down by controlled demolition that morning. He thus oversaw personnel with the complete access needed to pre-place explosive charges. It was Hauer who had advocated, despite the 1993 terrorist attack on WTC1, that Giuliani locate his OEM, from which a response to an expected follow up attack on the WTC would need to be orchestrated, next door in WTC7 (6). The new OEM opened on the 23rd floor of WTC7 in June 1999, where Hauer, its director, had his office. Hauer became a National Security Adviser to the National Institutes of Health on Sept. 10, the very day TRIPOD II personnel arrived in New York City, from which new NIH post he managed the Bush Administration’s ‘response’ to the imminent anthrax attacks, which falsely pointed the finger at Iraq and diverted attention from the true insider anthrax killers. Indeed, it was Hauer who zealously pushed the ‘bin Laden did it and just planes-and-fires brought down the Towers’ official story on CBS News on 9/11 in the immediate aftermath of the attacks before anyone not on the inside could have possibly determined the actual cause of the collapses, taking pains to insist that explosives were not involved, when they were. And according to mainstream press reports and a lawsuit by the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch, it was Hauer who personally advised the White House to take anti-anthrax Cipro antibiotics on 9/11 (7). [Other reports state White House personnel were put on Cipro nearly a month before the attacks (8). Did Hauer recommend that White House personnel be put on an anti-anthrax antibiotics on 9/11 because he had reason to believe the 9/11 attacks would also involve anthrax and/or because he had advance knowledge there would be subsequent imminent anthrax attacks? 
4) The FBI had been told the 9/11 attacks would involve anthrax. On Sept. 11, Janette MacKinlay lived in a fourth floor apartment overlooking what was soon to become ‘the pit’ of the World Trade Center. Her neighbor and close friend Bruno told her later that day or early the next morning that he had been pulled off the street into a bank lobby next to the WTC towers by an FBI agent on the morning of Sept. 11 to protect them from the dust cloud from the collapsing tower, and was told by the agent that “We were told this was going to happen and that it would involve anthrax.” Another FBI agent told a woman about to enter the NBC Bldg. that she should leave immediately because “there are explosives in the building as well as in the WTC.”  Clearly, the FBI had been pre-alerted because their own offices were in the WTC -- in WTC7 -- which, like WTC1 and WTC2, was pre-wired for a controlled demolition take down that day. MacKinlay had the presence of mind to collect the dust from the cloud that poured into her apartment overlooking the ‘pit’, and it is this dust that physicist Prof. Steven Jones has analyzed and in which he found military-grade thermate as well as other high explosives, proving the presence of pre-placed charges throughout the towers to which ‘Al Qaeda’ could not have had access to set. 
  Though no anthrax has been reported in the dust -- though it may not have yet been tested for -- if TRIPOD II were at least in part on an anthrax attack scenario, it wouldn’t have used actual anthrax, but an anthrax simulant -- an anthrax-like powder that would disperse through the air in a way similar to the real thing. Experts should be consulted for the chemical composition of anthrax simulants and the dust from the WTC collapses tested for these simulants. 
5) In the minds of the insider scriptwriters for the Sept. 2001 New York City TRIPOD II emergency response exercise, an attack on the World Trade Center was already associated with bio/chem terrorism. According to respected New York Times science writer William Broad, the plan for the 1993 attack on WTC1, for which alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheihk Mohammed’s nephew Ramzi Yousef is in prison for life, involved a plot to push cyanide into New York City. This is reported in Germs, Broad’s book co-authored with Judith Miller. Though the latter’s credibility has been compromised, Broad remains a respected journalist. 
6) Rudolph Giuliani bought the Florida-building crime scene of the first anthrax attack. Anthrax was found throughout the American Media, Inc. (AMI) building in Boca Raton, Florida where the first anthrax letter victim, Robert Stevens, worked -- as confirmed by AMI employees whose desks were near Stevens’ whom I have interviewed. A ‘don’t cross’ line was put around the building by the FBI, which had been “told 9/11 was coming and that it would involve anthrax.” AMI was forced to move to another location and put the building up for sale. According to The New York Times, this first anthrax attack crime scene with evidence still in place was then bought (at an anthrax sale price) by former NYC Mayor Giuliani, overseer of the Sept. 11/12 TRIPOD II bio/chem-terrorism probable-anthrax-scenario exercise, who formed a partnership with a decontamination expert qualified to decontaminate the building. Giuliani thus controlled and oversaw the destruction of evidence at both the New York crime scene of the 9/11 attacks, the WTC, ordering the steel containing traces of controlled demolition explosives to be removed, and the crime scene of the first anthrax attack, America Media, Inc, in Florida. 
   The FBI had already joined the conspiracy to obstruct its own investigation of the anthrax attacks by “agreeing to the request” of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ames, Iowa to destroy its ‘library’ of over 100 vials of the Ames strain gathered since 1928 necessary for a definitive match against the anthrax in the mailed letters, which library was destroyed on Oct. 12, 2001, one week after Bob Stevens became the first victim. (9)  
   This Florida anthrax is critical because, according to press reports on Ivins’ alleged involvement, the anthrax in the mailed letters -- but not the ‘first’ anthrax sent to Stevens (the FBI claims no letter was found in connection with the anthrax recovered from Stevens’ computer keyboard but assumes a ‘missing’ letter) was traced back to a flask in Ivins’ laboratory. The Stevens anthrax is thus key to proving that Ivins, if he was involved at all, did not act alone, as it does not trace back to his flask, and because it’s the closest in time to 9/11 and so most likely to be directly linked to Sept. 11. 
   Based on the above, a reasonable case can be made that Giuliani’s Sept. 11/12 TRIPOD II bio/chem. terrorism response exercise was at least in part on an anthrax scenario, using an anthrax simulant; that the letters mailed slightly later with real anthrax may have been written or the text drafted for that exercise; and that Giuliani’s former Office of Emergency Management director and close friend Jerome Hauer advised White House staff to take anti-anthrax Cipro on 9/11 because he was afraid the anthrax attack exercise scenario might be about to ‘go live’ just as both the NORAD hijacked-plane ‘exercise’ and the NRO plane-crashing-into-tower ‘exercise’ had already just ‘gone live’ earlier the morning of Sept. 11 as parts of their 'game' scenarios suddenly turned horribly real. 
   If the Florida anthrax doesn’t link back to Ivins’ Ft. Detrick flask and Ivins, who worked on vaccines (bio-defense) and not its weaponization (bio-offense) wasn’t behind the attacks -- and neither, the government now claims, was Steven Hatfill whom the Bush Administration just agreed to pay millions of dollars to settle his case -- then who was?  As detailed in the September issue by Casey and Kissin, the key suspects are CIA/DIA contractor Battelle Memorial Institute (BMI); and, individually, William Patrick and Ken Alibek. 
   Battelle, a bio-defense contractor located in West Jefferson, Ohio, has exclusive control of the Ames strain contained in the mailed anthrax letters (10) and, in partnership with the CIA and Defense Intelligence Agency, ran Project Jefferson, the government’s covert bio-weapons program whose goal was to develop hyper-weaponized anthrax like that contained in the mailed letters (11) and which Rumsfeld ordered developed to the next level of lethality on his first day as Secretary of Defense. 
   William Patrick, a former top bio-scientist at Ft. Detrick and close colleague of former Giuliani OEM Director Jerry Hauer, was the mentor of initial FBI ‘person of interest’ in the anthrax attacks Steven Hatfill. Patrick holds five classified patents and trade secrets, including on how to hyper-weaponize anthrax to the 1 trillion spores per gram contained in the letters mailed to Democratic Congressional leaders Senators Daschle and Leahy (12). After leaving Ft. Detrick, he was contracted by Battelle to research and write a report on how mailed letters could be used as the vector for dispersing weaponized anthrax. (13)  On Sept. 9, two days before 9/11, Battelle contractor DIA announced the ‘success’ of Project Jefferson’s anthrax hyper-weaponization program. Following the Sept./Oct. 2001 letter mailings, some of which were reported to contain anthrax at 1 trillion spores per gram, a footnote in Patrick’s report stating that “We have now arrived at the point where we can purify [anthrax] to the extent of 1 trillion spores in a gram” was removed from publicly available copies. (13)  
   William Patrick worked with his close colleague and friend, former Soviet bio-weapons expert Ken Alibek, at Battelle, which also ran Project Clear Vision, a secret CIA program to reverse engineer dry-powder anthrax bombs produced by the former Soviet Union. Patrick and Alibek were the FBI’s first suspects in the anthrax attacks, but the initial FBI investigative team was taken off that focus and replaced by a new team that diverted attention to Hatfill. Director Mueller himself assured a Senator that the FBI “was not investigating, nor intending to investigate, anyone with, or formerly with, BMI [Battelle]." (14)  Battelle is also a contractual partner with BioPort and Scientific Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and directs the anthrax production and experimentation program at the Army’s Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, the second ‘home’ in addition to Ft. Detrick of the Ames strain contained in the letters. Hauer and Hatfill worked together at SAIC. (15
The inside job anthrax attacks were then used as a pretext for the illegal secret domestic wiretap program and assault on the Constitution.
   Given the timing, it is now almost certain that the U.S. government insider anthrax attacks were used as the pretext for President Bush’s illegal warrantless domestic wiretap program for which he signed the first ‘authorization’ on Oct. 23, 2001 – right in the middle of the anthrax terror (16).  Senator John McCain had just gone on ABC TV, on Oct. 18, to push the disinformation that a nonexistent bentonite additive, purportedly marking the anthrax as coming from Iraq, meant that Saddam Hussein was behind the attacks. To this day, the White House still refuses to provide Congress with this Oct. 23, 2001 presidential authorization for its warrantless inside-the-U.S. surveillance program, and for obvious reason. This is the alleged authorization that we now know, from a footnote referring to it in another now-released document, contains Bush’s shocking claim that the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures do not apply to U.S. military operations conducted inside the
United States
   The fact that the Administration continued its secret and illegal domestic spying program long after its was publicly known that the anthrax attacks were the work of one of its own inside military facilities is strong evidence the perpetrators were the same high level officials who used the attacks to justify their illegal surveillance program – the White House itself. Exposing the inside job anthrax mailings as the false pretext for the illegal warrantless domestic wiretap program is thus critical to bringing President Bush and his administration to account for its Reichtag Fire-like attack on Congressional Democratic leaders Daschle and Leahy then pushing for an investigation of the 9/11 attacks and resisting the president’s railroading of the Patriot Act -- the analog to Hitler’s Enabling Act passed in the wake of the Reichtag Fire -- through Congress, as well as for the mass murders of Sept. 11.
We have seen the Terrorists, and They are U.S.  It’s time for under oath pre-impeachment hearings -- and pre-court martial hearings -- to interrogate these suspects, and all others who worked with them, to expose who wears The Scarlet

Did FBI Target Wrong Man as Anthrax Killer?
Investigative report by Greg Gordon finds important evidence not conclusively pursued by FBI   

see link for video

Greg Gordon, an investigative reporter, has spent 33 years uncovering waste, fraud, abuse and misconduct in Washington. Since joining McClatchy’s national staff in 2006, he has helped expose Wall Street’s role in the 2008 financial crisis, partisanship in the Justice Department and gaps in U.S. homeland security. In 2010, he and colleagues Kevin Hall and Chris Adams were honored as finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for their financial reporting, which included Gordon’s four-part series detailing Goldman Sachs’ selloff of tens of billions of dollars in securities backed by risky home mortgages while it secretly bet that a housing downturn would send the value of those securities plummeting.

PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome to The Real News Network. I'm Paul Jay in Washington. Shortly after 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, envelopes started showing up in Congress, and sent to certain journalists, filled with anthrax. Eventually, five people died and 17 people became sick, and a massive manhunt began, looking for the perpetrator. Well, the Justice Department decided it was Army microbiologist Bruce Ivins. And in 2008, Bruce Ivins committed suicide. But did the Justice Department target the right man? Well, a recent piece of investigative journalism by Greg Gordon of McClatchy Newspapers suggests maybe they didn't. Now joining us is Greg Gordon. Thanks for joining us.


JAY: So just so people know, over your shoulder here is one of the envelopes that was sent to Tom Brokaw. So tell us the story. Why do you think that Ivins may not have been the person?

GORDON: Well, this is an investigation that's been filled with mysteries. And part of the reason is part of the investigation was classified for a long time. This was a major national security investigation. And only recently a large cache of documents related to the investigation was released after a review of the science in the investigation by the National Academy of Sciences. And there is some new information that's really intriguing in these documents. My story revolves around a possible clue that the FBI may not have followed all the way to the point of determining whether it was going to really crack the case.

JAY: There was a contaminant, and in the--that they didn't follow all the way. So explain what was it. I mean, in your article you call it a fingerprint--we're talking, like, a scientific fingerprint.

GORDON: It's a scientific fingerprint. Exactly. And this particular contaminant is a bacteria that resembles anthrax so much that microbiologists at bioweapons facilities around the United States and in other countries typically use this substance to see how anthrax would behave, for example, if it were sprayed in the air like somebody might try to do if they were trying to kill a lot of people. So what happened is that the--as this investigation progressed, it was actually escalating the development of a brand-new field of microbial forensics. And this field involves tracing, you know, looking at the genomes of the substances under the glass and--.

JAY: And you point out in your report that Justice Department or FBI spent, like, $1 million just on this piece of the investigation.

GORDON: Well, no, they spent a lot more than that. They spent $1 million at the beginning on one sample, on looking at breaking down the genetic material in one sample. And then it got--that very same test today would cost $10. That's how far this field has come. But what happened is that two of the letters, including the one addressed to Tom Brokaw at NBC, contained a contaminant. The anthrax powder wasn't as fine as the powder that was sent to two US senators in Washington, and it really caused a tremendous amount of havoc.

JAY: So the question is: why don't they follow the track and find that contaminant, 'cause you might find out who made the anthrax?

GORDON: And they did at the beginning, but they pulled off, partly because they had zeroed in on a separate genetic trail that pointed to a flask that was in Dr. Ivins' laboratory at the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick, Maryland. And that flask had mutations in the anthrax, and those mutations matched letters that were sent by the perpetrator.

JAY: How unusual were those mutations?

GORDON: Those mutations were considered to be unique. So--but at the same time this was kind of developing, the lab scientists discovered this separate track, what was considered by an outside panel of scientists to be perhaps the best clue that had been developed in the lab to date. And this clue showed a particular strain of a contaminant called Bacillus subtilis. Anthrax is known as Bacillus anthracis. So here you have [incompr.] something that sounds very similar [crosstalk]

JAY: So when they checked where Ivins was working, did they find any of that trace of this contaminant?

GORDON: They searched Bruce Ivins. As they closed in on him in late 2007, they searched his lab. They took hundreds of samples from his lab, his office, his car, his home, and they did not find traces of anthrax or of this B. subtilis that I mentioned. They also checked a couple of other labs. The law enforcement officials spoke to me, and I was allowed to talk with four people involved with the investigation. They wouldn't say how many labs they checked for the B. subtilis, but it's clear that they pulled off once they zeroed in on Ivins. And the question is, and a lot of scientists who knew Dr. Ivins and insist that he is innocent, there was a clamor: why didn't they follow, why didn't they take this B. subtilis clue to ground?

JAY: Which means go to every lab that's making anthrax and see if they can find this [crosstalk]

GORDON: And the question is: you know, what was the security? Okay, there was a genetic trail leading to Bruce Ivins' flask. But was the security around the samples that were shared with other microbiologists at other weapons facilities in the United States, for example, the Dugway Proving Ground out in Utah, which is a big bioweapons lab, was the security adequate to ensure that somebody didn't take a tiny, microscopic drop of the anthrax and then grow it? 'Cause you can culture it.

JAY: So, in other words, you can't do a complete chain of possession of that flask and what's in that flask. Someone else might have had some opportunity to get at that [crosstalk] Ivins' flask.

GORDON: Before the FBI and the Justice Department declared flatly that Bruce Ivins was the killer after his suicide in 2008, which occurred after they told him they were going to charge him with capital murder, five capital murder counts, the question is--they say that they had eliminated all of the other suspects. There's a lot of doubt cast about that. And the question is: you know, if you had this clue and you didn't test everywhere [incompr.] among the labs and work areas of scores of microbiologists across the country and in Canada and in Europe that were using the same strain of anthrax that was in these envelopes, did you cover all the bases? You know, is it possible that one of those researchers somehow was able to get [incompr.] piece of the anthrax that Ivins was shipping around?

JAY: And the significance of all this is not just that Bruce Ivins committed suicide. If it turns out--and it's not clear that it wasn't Bruce Ivins, but it's also not completely clear that it was. If it turns out it wasn't, it means whoever did do it is still out there.

GORDON: That's absolutely correct. But bearing in mind, you know, the FBI didn't have to--and the Justice Department, when he died, it didn't have to say that this is the perpetrator. They could say he was our leading suspect and we have a huge amount--and they did have a load of circumstantial evidence that pointed at Bruce Ivins. But did they have it nailed?

JAY: For example?

GORDON: Well, for example, they allege that he gave them samples from his--that were purportedly from his flask but weren't really from his flask in 2002 when they first canvassed all of the microbiologists [crosstalk]

JAY: Which, if that's true, suggests he's trying to mislead him.

GORDON: That's what they believe--he tried to mislead them. They say that he had been working for a long time, really, for most of his 27-year career, on an anthrax vaccine that was in trouble because of clerks from Congress and elsewhere, and that he was, you know, motivated to seek revenge on those who were threatening the program that he was working on. They say he was a night owl, in the weeks before the attacks, in his lab, and that he liked to take nocturnal, long drives. And these envelopes were mailed from a mailbox in Princeton, New Jersey, they eventually discovered by taking huge numbers of samples at all the mailboxes near where they were postmarked. And so the FBI did some tremendous work, cutting-edge work on this investigation. They got--if they didn't get the right guy, they sure got close. But the question is: is this a big lead here that wasn't totally followed to the point where it was airtight, where the case was airtight?

JAY: And given what's at stake, it should have been airtight.

GORDON: And once he committed suicide, some people say that the FBI was really under a lot of pressure, because, you know, if it wasn't Bruce Ivins, then they've driven an innocent man to his death. And so we have this pronouncement, flat-out pronouncement that he's the guy and that's the end of it. But there is a lot of questions, there are a lot of questions that still persist.

JAY: Thanks for joining us, Greg.

GORDON: Thank you very much.

JAY: And thank you for joining us on The Real News Network.

Gang Stalking = COINTELPRO = STASI decomposition


The FBI and all law enforcement agencies are currently using a psychological warfare protocol like "COINTELPRO" which is almost identical to the STASI "decomposition". This is what people are referring to as Gang Stalking.


The earliest forms of this that I know of are from Egypt, Greece and Rome. Each of these societies had pervasive spy/informant networks that were spying on each other as well as looking for spies inside of their own empires. Anyone who did not feel that their own respective empire was the most perfect society could be considered a traitor. In other words they were looking for anyone who had thoughts beliefs and attitudes that were not approved of by the state that could instigate revolt or subversive activity or otherwise make them a danger to the empire. This obviously created a snitch culture and there were bound to be abuses. If a person was not liked by another then it was easy to persuade others to make a complaint and get that person killed or exiled. No one dare say or do anything that was politically incorrect and thus the rulers were able to maintain power and control over the people. Blatant execution or exile is common in an empire but in a democracy it is not as easy to accomplish these punishments so modern psychological operations were developed to accomplish these goals and in this way an empire can masquerade as a democracy.


The STASI decomposition protocol is an excellent example of how these modern psychological operations work. The STASI decomposition is almost identical to the FBI’s COINTELPRO. Here is a link to a document that shows an overview of the STASI decomposition.

Law enforcement agencies in concert with government and corporations are using bribery, deception, coercion & blackmail to create an informant & saboteur network out of criminals of all kinds, extremist groups, cults, patriotic zealots, the poor, the homeless, friends, family, neighbors, repair men, fire men, police, military personnel and agents to target individuals and groups that have beliefs and attitudes (such as civil rights and animal rights.) that may cause them to commit acts of terrorism at some future time or motivate others to commit terrorist acts or incite revolt. This pre-crime approach has existed numerous times throughout American history but has reared its ugly head again due to 9/11.

Unfortunately, according to former FBI agent Mike German, many post 9/11 targeted individuals are nothing more than a training exercise.

Here is a lecture by Noam Chomsky that uncovers the root mindset in America that predicates the targeting of groups and individuals.



The real power behind gang stalking and many other terrible things is the minority of the opulent but the front group making all the policy changes these days is the neoconservatives. Neoconservatisim is a cult ideology that has been bankrolled and nurtured by the opulent just like all of the other cult ideologies created or co-opted by the opulent for their machinations.

Stalin and Hitler were fanatical leaders inspired by a gang mentality and by the concept of "historic mission." They believed that intolerance and large scale brutality were necessary ingredients of social order. Each of them was also supported by the “cult of personality.” The neocons are strikingly similar.


What are the components of gang mentality?



·         Extreme concern with reputation both inside and outside of the ideology. Neocons are this way.



·         Extreme concern with respect both inside and outside of the ideology. Neocons are this way.



·         No challenge will go unanswered. It is so with the neocons as well.


What is the concept of “historic mission”?


In a well documented conversation, Adolf Hitler berated the Austrian Chancellor Schuschnigg and stated…

"That is what you say!...But I am telling you that I am going to solve the so-called Austrian problem one way or the other...I have a historic mission, and this mission I will fulfill because Providence has destined me to do so...I have only to give an order and all your ridiculous defense mechanisms will be blown to bits. You don't seriously believe you can stop me or even delay me for half an hour, do you?"


Prominent neocon Michael Ledeen stated…

“Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace. Seeing America undo traditional societies, they fear us, for they do not wish to be undone. They cannot feel secure so long as we are there, for our very existence—our existence, not our politics—threatens their legitimacy. They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission.”


What is the cult of personality?


The cult of personality is explained pretty well here…

·         http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_personality


The Straussian philosophy is a cult of personality and the neocons follow the Straussian philosophy

If you select 1 percent of a population (Whistle blowers, dissidents, artists, those that look funny, and act or dress funny) and punish them severely for little or nothing, then you will gain the compliance of the other 99 percent either through fear or because they’ve been conned by the COINTELPRO/STASI type propaganda in to believing that the TI’s must be removed from society for the common good. Then you can implement the social, political and financial changes you want on a grand scale in a relatively short period of time. I.E. advance your historic mission. This has been done enumerable times throughout history.


When the average person considers what the Nazis or Stalin did, they are naturally horrified. When a banker considers what the Nazis or Stalin did they have dollar signs in their eyes. MONEY is the real reason this is happening!!! The bankers know that a one world government is not possible. Empire building has been going on for centuries and a global empire has never been realized. But if you understand finance, history, politics and the military industrial complex, then it is clear to see that it is the EXERCISE of building empires and large scale wars that redistributes the wealth of nations into the hands of the banking elite and keeps the masses under control.


Unfortunately most human beings don't understand how their own minds work nor are they well educated in multiple disciplines. Most of the people that perpetrate these crimes against humanity aren't fully aware that there is such a big conspiracy going on. It’s just that most human beings have so many inherent psychological weaknesses and such a deep lack of education that if you alter the socioeconomic landscape in just the right way, you get what you see here in America today.

·         http://metanoia-films.org/human-resources/#watch










One of the biggest mistakes people make when they become TI’s is to attempt to create a counter spy network against those that are surveilling them. This is something that the neocons and the banking elite are OK with. A global spy counter spy network is much like the cold war and the cold war was extremely profitable for the banking elite not to mention a powerful pretext to control people. The global war on terror needs a global terrorist network and since there really is not one, many targets will be manipulated into acting out in ways that can classify them as terrorists thus creating the impetus for law enforcement agencies to demand more tax payer money to fight the war on terror. Targets are all better off contacting a civil rights group and explaining that they have reason to believe they have been placed on the terrorist watch list.


Do yourself a favor and learn as much about economics and finance as possible. It will help you survive. This is all the info you will need to be an educated investor. It’s not a get rich quick thing, just a solid economics and investing education.

Also, listen to as many lectures by Professor Noam Chomsky as possible. They are all over the internet. He is brilliant and has been exposing the machinations of the opulent (Rothschild, Rockefeller etc) for decades. His research is very credible and will help you to separate the facts from the propaganda and give you a measure of mental clarity and peace. Utilizing his research will also help you gain some of your credibility back with others.


Try to explain all of this to your friends and family. Usually when people see the mission statement of the neocons from their websites (PNAC & FPI) they start listening.


According to anti-communist author Ludwik Kowalski

“Mass murder occurs when brutal and sadistic criminals, to be found in every society, are promoted to positions of dominance, when propaganda is used to dehumanize the targeted population and when children are inoculated with intolerance and hatred. It occurs when victims ("inferior races" or "class enemies") are excluded from the norms of morality, when ideological totalitarianism is imposed and when freedom is suspended. Fear and violence, the preconditions of genocide, are likely to be found in societies with large numbers of thieves and informants.”

Court To Shield Undercover FBI Operatives During Mohamud Trial OPB

| Dec. 19, 2012 3:43 p.m. | Portland, Oregon Share 0 Email Contributed By: April Baer FBI operatives will be protected as they testify in a prominent counter-terrorism case early next year. Federal attorneys are in final negotiations about what evidence the jury may hear. Mohamed Mohamud Multnomah County Jail Mohamed Mohamud Judge Garr King has signed an order stating undercover FBI operatives will be protected as they testify in the case of Mohamed Mohamud. The 21-year-old was raised in Beaverton. He's accused of attempting to set off a dummy bomb at Portland's annual tree-lighting ceremony, in a 2010 FBI sting. Investigators say he had to be drawn out before he got in touch with Al Qaeda or similar groups. But his attorneys plan to argue he was entrapped by the FBI, with a series of interactions and surveillance that began when Mohamud was 17. Two undercover operatives will testify. They met with Mohamud a half dozen times before the day the hoax plot spooled out. Prosecutors convinced Judge King the operatives need protection -- they'll be allowed to wear light disguises, and use fake names they assumed during the operation. Also, most observers will be cleared from the courtroom.

I have recently talked by phone with Harry Cooper author of Hitler in
His book details how the US Government allowed the German/Corporate
government to continue and grow in Argentina at the end of WW2.


“The Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal convicted 24 of the I.G. Farben executives for mass murder, slavery and other crimes against humanity; however, in less than 7 years, every single murderer was released, and began consulting American corporations. From 1950 to 1980, Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst filled their highest position, Chairman of the Board, with convicted mass murderers. Fritz ter Meer, convicted of mass murder, served just 5 prison years, then “conveniently” became the chairman of Bayer’s supervisory board. Kurt Blome, who admitted to killing Jews with “gruesome experiments,” was hired in 1951 by the U.S. Army Chemical Corps to work on chemical warfare. Today, these companies send lobbyists to Washington D.C. with millions (if not billions) of dollars to influence regulatory decisions made by the FDA and the CDC. These companies today are more powerful in and of themselves than I.G. Farben ever was during WWII.”

From Maryland to the Caribbean to Asia, Record-Hot Ocean Waters Give Extreme Weather Potentials a Big Boost
The forecasts began coming in this morning: Heavy rainfall expected over the next two days. Possible flash flooding. Turn around, don’t drown.

These advisories buzzed up from local news media for the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia metro areas as a crazy, wavy Jet Stream spawned an upper-level low that’s predicted to gorge on an insane amount of moisture spewing up off the record-hot Atlantic Ocean.

Forecast GFS model guidance shows an upper-level low-pressure system situated over the Great Lakes region in association with a big trough dipping down from the Arctic. Over the next 24 to 48 hours, the low is expected to shift south and east. Becoming cut off from the upper-level flow, the low is then predicted to set up a persistent rainfall pattern over DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

(NOAA’s precipitation forecast model shows extreme rainfall predicted for the DC area over the next seven days. Note that record global heat and, in particular, excessively hot sea-surface temperature anomalies off the U.S. east coast are providing an unprecedented amount of fuel for storms. Should such storms fire off, they could produce rainfall totals in excess of those currently predicted. Image source: NOAA.)

Easterly winds are expected to be drawn into the low from a record-hot Atlantic Ocean. These winds will bear upon them an extraordinary burden of atmospheric moisture which has been continuously evaporating up from a very warm Gulf Stream. Such moisture is fuel for powerful rainstorms. Given the destabilizing kick provided by the upper-level low, it is expected to deliver some pretty intense downpours on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

NOAA model guidance shows rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches over the area for the next five days. However, given the high atmospheric moisture content and the record atmospheric and ocean heat that’s spiking storm energy potentials, there is a possibility for locally higher amounts.

Extreme Ocean Heat Contributes to Severe Weather

As the DC area prepares for what could be another record or near-record rainfall event, various other regions over the Atlantic and on the other side of the world are also facing the possibility of intense weather.

FBI Director James Comey appears Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he’ll get another chance to explain his agency’s double standard regarding Hillary Clinton. His probe of the former Secretary of State’s private email server is looking more like a kid-glove exercise with each new revelation.

House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Friday disclosed that the FBI granted immunity to Mrs. Clinton’s top aides as part of its probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information. According to Mr. Chaffetz, this “limited” immunity was extended to former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and senior adviser Heather Samuelson, in order to get them to surrender their laptops, which they’d used to sort through Mrs. Clinton’s work-versus-personal emails.

Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico. He’s right. The FBI merely had to seek a subpoena or search warrant. By offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.

CIA Director: I Was a Supporter of Communist Party in Mid-1970s

CIA Director John Brennan

By Steve Neavling

CIA Director John Brennan revealed that he was once a communist sympathizer in the mid-1970s because he was disgusted by Watergate and the political landscape that helped produce it.

Brennan was in college at the time and voted for Communist Party nominee Gus Hall, New York Magazine reports. 

By 1980, Brennan said he was no longer a Communist sympathizer and realized that capitalism was a far better system.

Brennan said he “froze” when he was taking a polygraph test when entering the CIA.

“This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate.”

CIA found ‘convincing evidence’ Chilean dictator was behind 1976 D.C. attack
By Missy Ryan September 23 2016



Independent Investigative Journalism Since 1995
George H.W. Bush, the CIA and a Case of State Terrorism
September 21, 2016

From the Archive: Forty years ago, a car-bomb exploded in Washington killing Chile’s ex-Foreign Minister Orlando Letelier, an act of state terrorism that the CIA and its director George H.W. Bush tried to cover up, Robert Parry reported in 2000.

By Robert Parry (Originally published on Sept. 23, 2000)

In early fall of 1976, after a Chilean government assassin had killed a Chilean dissident and an American woman with a car bomb in Washington, D.C., George H.W. Bush’s CIA leaked a false report clearing Chile’s military dictatorship and pointing the FBI in the wrong direction.

The bogus CIA assessment, spread through Newsweek magazine and other U.S. media outlets, was planted despite CIA’s now admitted awareness at the time that Chile was participating in Operation Condor, a cross-border campaign targeting political dissidents, and the CIA’s own suspicions that the Chilean junta was behind the terrorist bombing in Washington.

Then-Vice President George H.W. Bush in a meeting at the White House on Feb. 12, 1981. (Photo credit: Reagan Library)
In a 21-page report to Congress on Sept. 18, 2000, the CIA officially acknowledged for the first time that the mastermind of the terrorist attack, Chilean intelligence chief Manuel Contreras, was a paid asset of the CIA.

The CIA report was issued almost 24 years to the day after the murders of former Chilean diplomat Orlando Letelier and American co-worker Ronni Moffitt, who died on Sept. 21, 1976, when a remote-controlled bomb ripped apart Letelier’s car as they drove down Massachusetts Avenue, a stately section of Washington known as Embassy Row.

In the report, the CIA also acknowledged publicly for the first time that it consulted Contreras in October 1976 about the Letelier assassination. The report added that the CIA was aware of the alleged Chilean government role in the murders and included that suspicion in an internal cable the same month.

“CIA’s first intelligence report containing this allegation was dated 6 October 1976,” a little more than two weeks after the bombing, the CIA disclosed.

Nevertheless, the CIA – then under CIA Director George H.W. Bush – leaked for public consumption an assessment clearing the Chilean government’s feared intelligence service, DINA, which was then run by Contreras.

Relying on the word of Bush’s CIA, Newsweek reported that “the Chilean secret police were not involved” in the Letelier assassination. “The [Central Intelligence] agency reached its decision because the bomb was too crude to be the work of experts and because the murder, coming while Chile’s rulers were wooing U.S. support, could only damage the Santiago regime.” [Newsweek, Oct. 11, 1976]

Bush, who later became the 41st president of the United States (and is the father of the 43rd president), has never explained his role in putting out the false cover story that diverted attention away from the real terrorists. Nor has Bush explained what he knew about the Chilean intelligence operation in the weeks before Letelier and Moffitt were killed.

Dodging Disclosure

As a Newsweek correspondent in 1988, a dozen years after the Letelier bombing, when the elder Bush was running for president, I prepared a detailed story about Bush’s handling of the Letelier case.

The draft story included the first account from U.S. intelligence sources that Contreras was a CIA asset in the mid-1970s. I also learned that the CIA had consulted Contreras about the Letelier assassination, information that the CIA then would not confirm.

The sources told me that the CIA sent its Santiago station chief, Wiley Gilstrap, to talk with Contreras after the bombing. Gilstrap then cabled back to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, Contreras’s assurances that the Chilean government was not involved. Contreras told Gilstrap that the most likely killers were communists who wanted to make a martyr out of Letelier.

Chilean diplomat Orlando Letelier, who was murdered along with co-worker Ronni Moffitt, when right-wing terrorists blew up his car in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 21, 1976.
My story draft also described how Bush’s CIA had been forewarned in 1976 about DINA’s secret plans to send agents, including the assassin Michael Townley, into the United States on false passports.

Upon learning of this strange mission, the U.S. ambassador to Paraguay, George Landau, cabled Bush

Montana Standard
... pass things that are extremely bad for Montanans.'' -- Montana State Rep. David Howard, R-Park City, a former clerk with the FBI and fierce critic of marijuana.


The most compelling evidence of conspiracy to kill Kennedy is the nearly identical effort to do so in Chicago three weeks earlier. Historian James W. Douglass (JFK and the Unspeakable) describes a scenario resembling Dallas. Four snipers were to be positioned in tall buildings along the presidential motorcade route. An informant named “Lee” provided a tip to the FBI and, a day later, an alert rooming house landlady warned the FBI about four men in possession of rifles, scopes and a newspaper clipping describing the president’s route. While two of the men escaped, the other two were taken into custody and interrogated by the Secret Service. Their names have never been revealed.

But the most dramatic link between Chicago and Dallas was the arrest of an ex-marine who, like Oswald, had been stationed at a CIA-operated base in Japan. His name was Thomas Arthur Vallee and, like Oswald, had been positioned to take the blame for the assassination. It was further learned that the license plate on Vallee’s car was restricted to U.S. intelligence agencies. Dramatic developments in Saigon caused Kennedy to cancel this trip to Chicago.

On Oct. 11, 1963, President Kennedy signed National Security Action memorandum 263, under which U.S. forces would gradually be withdrawn from Vietnam by 1965. Four days after he was assassinated President Johnson signed National Security Memo 273, reversing Kennedy’s withdrawal plan.

Apparently Ebola, like Tuberculosis or Lyme bacteria and many known viruses, can remain in your body for years after infection

Ebola Virus RNA detection in Semen More than Two Years after Resolution of Acute Ebola Virus Infection
Among 149 men who survived Ebola virus disease (EVD) and donated semen 260–1016 days after EVD onset, Ebola virus (EBOV) ribonucleic acid (RNA) was detected in 13 (9%). Of 137 men who donated semen 2 years after EVD onset, 11 (8%) had an EBOV RNA-positive specimen. The mechanism underlying the persistence of EBOV RNA in semen is unclear, and it is unclear whether the detection of viral RNA represents the presence of infectious virus."

As case reports have emerged of Ebola virus persisting in the eyes and genitourinary tract, people began to wonder if there were 'privileged sites' that allowed the Ebola virus to remain intact but dormant in people who had had earlier infections. Now there is additional strong evidence this occurs.

 Ebola RNA was detected in semen in 8% of 137 men who survived an Ebola infection--two years later.  Presumably, like the organisms which cause Lyme Disease, TB, chickenpox and other infections, people may develop recurrent illness if their immune system fails to control persisting, live organisms.

While the presence of RNA is not absolute evidence that live, infectious Ebola virus remains in the bodies of recovered victims, as culture of the virus would be, it is hard to imagine any other scenario to explain this finding.  Especially since shedding of Ebola virus was known to possibly continue for months after an infection, even prior to the 2014 Ebola epidemic.

It’s hard to credit anything about a movie whose ruthless Medellin Cartel Drug Lords wear powder-blue leisure suits.

Still, when a “based on a true story” movie spreads egregious falsehoods about a man who will someday be of vital interest to future historians,  attention must be paid.

Because of that, the “Sex and videotape” promised in today’s headline will have to wait anther day, just until we can get through the lies.


In-flight turbulence in the Zeitgeist
Reports DAILY VARIETY, “Tom Cruise (as Barry Seal) is a devil-may-care playboy in TWA uniform… bored of his domestic flight path, keeping himself amused with the odd bit of cigar smuggling and faked in-flight turbulence, when he’s approached in 1978 by the CIA.”

Everything about this statement is wrong.  The big questions is: why?

Were filmmakers Tom Cruise, director Doug Liman, and screenwriter Nicholas Spanelli just being stupid or careless? Or were they acting in pursuit of a hidden—and possibly more insidious—motive?

Start here: Today Barry Seal is famous for being a CIA pilot. Full stop.

Do current Agency honchos find that fact uncomfortable?  Probably only if they were still controlling drug trafficking into the U.S., right ?

When the movie finishes tanking—its already more than halfway there, placing 4th in Australia, just behind the comedy ‘Girl Trip,’ which is probably not an indication of sizzling box office—maybe one of them will talk.

But  a number of earlier “escapades” of Barry Seal’s would have called him to the attention of the CIA long before he got desperate enough to  fly Cuban cigars into the U.S.

Here’s a (brief) look at two.


Centurions of ‘The American Century’  
Ten American men were out on the town in a night club in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa that night—January 22, 1963—wearing black suits, black skinny ties, drinking, smoking, and generally slouching around at ringside. At some point, probably later in the evening, the nightclub’s photographer wandered over to their table.


When I first showed this photo to someone who should have been there, but wasn’t, his response was sharp and immediate.  “There weren’t—there aren’t supposed to be any pictures.”

Yet there they are, ten men, wearing loopy grins and raising their glasses at the camera like they’re posing for a picture at a Senior Prom. Maybe its almost closing time. Most of the other tables are empty. It looks like the kind of night which began much earlier in a restaurant whose name no one now remembers.

The shutter snaps. The flash-gun goes off. The moment—even as it happened—probably means nothing to anyone there. But today it is the only-known photograph of the CIA’s super-secret assassination squad known as Operation 40.

There’s Barry Seal, plain as day, you can’t miss him, sitting third from left. And right beside him, second from the left, that’s Porter Goss, future head of the Central Intelligence Agency under George W. Bush.

And front left, leaning on the stage, that’s Felix Rodriguez, famous for a dozen reasons, like killing Che Guevara in the mountains of Bolivia in 1967, or helping out his friend, then Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush, twenty years later doing ‘God-knows-what’ at Illopango Air Base in El Salvador.

Does it look like Barry Seal will have to resort to cigar smuggling to catch the eye of the CIA?


Barry Seal & The Mexican Connection
FAST FORWARD to July 1, 1972.

It’s a Saturday.  It’s just ten days after the arrest of burglars in Washington’s Watergate Complex.

The musical “Hair” is closing on Broadway, and Sammy Davis Jr’s single “Candy Man” and “Song Sung Blue” by Neil Diamond are fighting it out for No.1 on the charts.

The TV series Bewitched is airing it’s final episode. And, as if by magic, also on that day, because of the brewing Watergate scandal,  Attorney General John N. Mitchell will resign as chairman of President Nixon’s re-election committee.

It’s still six years before the ‘based on a true story’ movie “AMERICAN MADE” says Barry Seal first caught the eye of the CIA… for smuggling cigars.

And then this happens: Pilot Barry Seal is arrested in Shreveport and indicted in New Orleans for conspiracy to export enough C4 plastic explosive to blow the island of Cuba half-way up the Florida Keys.


“That’s now what transpired”
From Barry & ‘the boys'”:


“It was,” pilot James Miller, who was busted with Barry, explains, “part of an ongoing CIA plot to overthrow Castro in the 70’s.”

“Barry Seal,” Miller begins, picking his words carefully, “was led by someone that he obviously had a lot of faith in to believe that Cuba was going to be overthrown with the backing of the United States Government, through the CIA.”

“We were offered support from the Mexican Air Force. We flew in to an Air Force Base in Mexico. We met with some people who had uniforms on–I had no idea what their rank was–and we were assured by them that we would have their full support if we needed it and wanted it.”

“Then we returned to the United States with the understanding that we had the full support of the U. S. and the CIA. But….that’s not what transpired.”

Authorities swoop in as Barry Seal’s DC-4 is being loaded in Shreveport and arrest everyone involved in the operation.  Seal is very publicly busted, for illegally attempting to fly  C4 plastic explosives to Mexico.

Authorities don’t know it, but they have just temporarily shut down what will soon be known, with the release of the Nixon tapes, as “The Mexican Connection.”


Seal was flying a specialty airline:  weapons-for-heroin
Barry Seal’s 1972 arrest occurred during the Watergate summer of 1972.

On July 3, 1972, The New York Times reported:

“Federal officials have arrested seven men in Texas and Louisiana on charges of conspiring to smuggle munitions to Mexico. A DC-4 was seized at the Shreveport Regional Airport loaded with almost seven tons of plastic C-4 explosive, 7,000 feet of explosive primer cord, and 2,600 electric blasting caps.

Among those arrested were Richmond C. Harper, 48, the brother of Tito Harper, a rancher and Director of the Frontier State Bank of Eagle Pass, Texas, and Marion Hagler, a former Inspector with the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Murray Kessler and Alder B. Seal were also arrested. Kessler, who was a house guest at the Harper ranch last June, had a record of six convictions in Federal and state courts on charges of interstate theft, transporting stolen property, bookmaking and conspiracy to possess heroin. Federal authorities described him as an associate of the Gambino organized-crime family.


The CIA v. Richard M. Nixon
It was part of a larger war between the CIA and Richard Nixon over the newly-created apparatus the President had devised to bring control of all drug intelligence into the White House. The CIA, to put it mildly, did not approve.

Former military pilot James Miller, who was arrested with Seal that day,  described it as a weapons-for-heroin flight.


In an interview for “Barry & ‘the boys'” Miller stated it was by no means the first such CIA-sponsored mission that he and Barry Seal had flown.   Had Miller, an ex-military pilot,  known he was involved in a weapons-for-heroin transaction?

He did.  “This was not the first time this pipeline had been used,” said Miller, matter-of-factly.  “That was why it was such a shock when we were arrested.”


Seven tons of plastic explosive buys a lot of heroin

Barry’s co-conspirators were a rich assortment of people connected with everything from organized crime to the White House’s new drug enforcement czar.

Murray Kessler  was an associate of the Gambino Family. He was also a “known associate” of Barry Seal, Guy Banister and David Ferrie in the 1960’s.  And he was a frequent house guest  of another defendant, Richmond Harper, at his ranch on the Mexican border.

Richmond Harper, the trial showed ,was the middle-man in the weapons-for-heroin deal.

“Harper,” Barry Seal told James Miller,  had “deep deep ties right in to the White House.”

Richmond Harper was described as a “tall lean guy wearing a cowboy shirt with the monogrammed initials “RCH,” a string tie and cowboy boots,” according to author Pete Brewton.

Kessler’s rap sheet included six convictions on charges of interstate theft, transporting stolen property, bookmaking and conspiracy to possess heroin.  A Customs agent tailing him through an airport described Kessler in his report as “50-ish and Jewish-looking, wearing a open-collar gray shirt with a gray sports suit, accompanied by a “bleached blond in white slacks and a red polka-dotted jacket.”

She must have made quite an impression.

So how far back does Murray Kessler go?  “Murray Kessler had been an anti-Castro guy, since his days with Guy Banister,”  according to retired DEA agent Dick Gustafson, who knew him. “It was like a mantra he carried around with him.”

The explosives, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Louisiana, “were headed to Cuban exiles in Mexico, who were going to use them in an effort to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro.”

And no one was the wiser.

Barry Seal’s 1972 bust was big news only in Texas and Louisiana. And it was never connected to Watergate in the press.

How deep into the “deep state” did Barry Seal go?  Listen to the clip from the actual White House tapes below, and draw your own conclusion.

From what it sounds like, Barry Seal didn’t need to impress the CIA because he was bored with TWA, partly because he was already one their most valued assets, and also by 1978, Barry Seal hadn’t been working for TWA for years.


How much money do you need?”
Reported the The Washington Post on May 1 1974:

One transcript, which later became known as the ‘smoking gun,” shows Nixon and Dean discussing accommodating blackmail demands by the Watergate burglars.

“The transcript reveals, Mr. Nixon repeatedly discussed different methods by which as much as $1 million could be paid to the burglars without the payments being traced to the White House. The purpose of such payments, in the President’s own words, would be “to keep the cap on the bottle,” to “buy time,” to “tough it through.”

“How much money do you need?” the President asked Dean early in the March 21 conversation, according to the transcript.

“I would say these people are going to cost a million dollars over the next two years,” Dean replied.

“We could get that,” the President continued. “On the money, if you need the money you could get that. You could get a million dollars. You could get it in cash. I know where it could be gotten. It is not easy, but it could be done.”

When Nixon tells John Dean that he knows how to get a million dollars,  it is probably Barry Seal’s operation he is talking about.



 Welcome to the online home of The Expert Witness Radio Show!

For those wondering… after nearly 16 years of volunteer work and fundraising on our part, WBAI unceremoniously cancelled the show.  No prior notice, and no opportunity to say goodbye to our longtime listeners.

This is not particularly shocking – WBAI has been a circular firing squad for a long time now – we loved them, and loved being part of them just the same.

Mike and Mark are working on doing a no-holds-barred web-only version of the show.  Updates as they occur.

Thank you to all who have listened and supported us.



The Expert Witness Radio Show primarily centers around issues of government ineptitude and media complacency – with a particular focus on politics and the intelligence community.

Not to say that the show is limited to those subjects… for over a decade, we have covered a wide range of topics, both unusual and un-mainstream. With a great array of knowledgeable guests, the show covers stories that aren’t being covered elsewhere.

Hosted by Michael Levine – one of the most highly decorated DEA agents in that agency’s history, and co-hosted by Producer / Engineer / Webmaster Mark Marshall.

If you’ve never been here before, the heart of this site is the archives. It contains audio from shows dating back over a decade … front-line testimony on government & police corruption, the “war on drugs”, and covert operations worldwide – and much, much more.

Those archives are currently being rebuilt in this new format, and being added to a master RSS feed that will allow you to access ALL of those shows.  Your patience is appreciated – we’re an all-volunteer unit here, and there are well over a decade of shows to post.

Those of you who feel intrepid can browse the raw folder of audio files while we reconstruct.

The 100 Years Episode

One of our most important episodes, from 1997 – 4 Federal Agents, with a total of 100 years’ experience, gathered to talk about the state of Security and Intelligence both in the U.S. and around the world – and warned of our vulnerability to impending horrific terrorist acts, due to the ineptitude of CIA and FBI. Sadly, much of what they warned would come true came to pass.

Boston, Mass - 9/1/2001

A Boston FBI agent charged with forging a credit card application to
scam Home Depot out of a $4,700 yard tractor has been suspended, the
FBI said.

Jonathan True was arrested Aug. 24 on forgery, credit fraud, and other
charges. The FBI said he used the name of one of his Haverhill
neighbors when he applied for credit at a Home Depot in
Fredericksburg, Va., to buy the tractor.

Fredericksburg police said True was driving a U-Haul that had been
stolen from a parking lot in Quantico, Va. He also had a stolen
license plate on the car he was driving, according to police.

True, a two-year FBI veteran, was attending a training session at the
FBI Academy in Quantico, said FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz.

In an unrelated case, another Boston FBI agent was charged Sunday with
threatening his wife.

Gary John, an agent who has been assigned to the Boston office for
more than 12 years, remains on the job as the FBI reviews the
circumstances of his arrest in Charlestown, R.I., Marcinkiewicz said.

John, 52, was arrested at his Rhode Island home after his wife went to
the police station and said she had a fight with her husband, police
said. John refused to let his wife use the telephone to call for help,
police said.

``She indicated she was in fear for herself,'' said Sgt. Patrick
McMahon. ``There was no physical assault. It was a big screaming,
yelling threatening incident.''

The arrests shook the FBI's Boston office, which is reeling from dual
investigations by a Justice Department Task Force and a congressional
committee into corruption involving its handling of informants,
including gangsters James ``Whitey'' Bulger and Stephen ``The


Marshals arrest former FBI agent in Connecticut for jumping bail

CHARLESTOWN, R.I. U-S Marshals catch a former F-B-I agent in Connecticut after he violates bail in Rhode Island.
Charles Wayant, a supervising deputy with the U-S Marshals in Rhode Island, says they arrested Gary John at an apartment complex in Stratford, Connecticut, Thursday after a two-month search.

John, who lived in Charlestown, is charged with violating his bail and several court orders barring him from contact with his ex-wife. He worked for the F-B-I for 29 years but has been in and out of jail since separating from his ex-wife in 2001.

Wayant says the marshals pursued the 57-year-old surveillance specialist at his probation officer's request. He says John made unspecified threats that were taken very seriously.

FBI agents illegally donate US equipment

FBI donates $1m to Beirut forensics
Web posted at: 12/10/2005 2:13:39


BEIRUT: The United States donated more than $1m worth of forensics equipment and training to Lebanese police on Thursday during the first-ever visit to the country by a Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

“As a symbol of cooperation and investment in Lebanon’s future, the FBI is donating over $1m in equipment to the Lebanese government’s forensics labs, and will also provide technical training for criminal forensic investigations,” said a statement from the US embassy in Beirut.

The announcement came as FBI head Robert Mueller met in Beirut with Interior Minister Hassan Sabeh, Justice Minister Charles Rizk and chief of Internal Security Forces Ashraf Rifi. The goal of the trip was for “Mueller to learn about Lebanese government efforts to improve their criminal investigation capabilities,” after numerous politicians and anti-Syrian figures were killed this year by unknown assailants.

However, the move drew condemnation from Hezbollah. “It is not enough for FBI teams to carry out missions in Lebanon. The FBI director came in person in a move loaded with provocation,” said an anchor on the Hezbollah television channel Al Ma

When will men for sake of peace
And for democracy
Learn no bombs a man can make
Keep men [and women] from being free?. . .
And this he says, our Harry Moore,
As from the grave he cries:
No bomb can kill the dreams I hold,
For freedom never dies!
— from “Ballad of Harry T. Moore” by Langston Hughes

“On Christmas Day in 1951, Harry T. and Harriette Moore had just finished celebrating their silver anniversary when a bomb blew up their home in Mims, Fla. The explosion killed the couple,” explains investigative reporter Jerry Mitchell in an article in the Clarion Ledger. Both had been teachers and civil rights activists.

Harry Moore died on the way to the hospital; Harriette Moore died nine days later, leaving behind two daughters, Evangeline and Annie Rosalea. Evangeline Moore dedicated her life to seeking justice for the death of her parents.

Biography for Harry T. and Harriette Moore

Written by students at DeLaura Junior High School to fill the gap in the textbooks. As the students explain in this 1995 essay: “The Moore’s battle for equality continues today. A step towards that goal is the rightful and long overdue recognition of the Moore’s in our schools history books. We, the students at DeLaura Junior High School therefore dedicate this supplementary history book to Mr. and Mrs. Moore. The Moores were not violent people, but people who did not let the fear of financial or bodily harm control their lives. The fear that kept them going, was that if they did not stand up and speak out that nothing would ever change. Because of their valiant efforts, changes have been made for the better. They are true heroes and an inspiration to us all.”

Former James Madison High School Teacher Charged With Possession Of Child Pornography
Posted on September 17, 2017 by admin
Acting U.S. Attorney William F. Sweeney Jr. announced Thursday a former New York teacher had been charged with possessing child pornography.

Forty-one-year-old Craig Roffman of Manhattan, New York possessed electronic and hard copies of child pornography, which was recovered during a search warrant of his residence. Law enforcement officers recovered several thumb drives that contained about 3,000 files of child pornography, including images prepubescent children and infants engaged in sexual activity with adults, according to court documents.

Craig RoffmanRoffman was charged with one count of possession of child pornography. He faces a maximum 20-year prison sentence for that charge.

“As alleged, Craig Roffman, a former teacher, was arrested yesterday in possession of thousands of electronic files containing child pornography,” said Sweeney. “Together with the FBI, we are committed to protecting children by prosecuting those who sexually exploit them.”

“How anyone can view a toddler or a baby in a sexual manner boggles the mind. Speaking as a parent to all other parents, we are the first line of defense for children who are barely able to feed themselves, let alone speak up when an adult abuses them in such grotesque ways,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. “If you believe your child came into contact with this subject, please call the FBI immediately at 212-384-5000.”

FBI agent, professor arrested on child  ponography
May 15, 2012
A former Federal Bureau of Investigations agent and professor at a Tulsa college has resigned following his arrest on child pornography charges.

Federal agents arrested Donald Sachtleben in Indiana, after which officials said Sachtleben resigned his position as a visiting professor at Oklahoma State University's Center for Health Sciences where he has worked since October.

Investigators said they found dozens of pictures and videos of child pornography on his computer and believe he was trading those images online.
