UPDATE MARCH 11, 1999
THE TIMELINE TELLS THE STORY
OF HOW THE CIA-DRUG CONTROVERSY
WAS CLINTON'S HOLE CARD IN THE IMPEACHMENT!
1982 - Ken Starr, part
of French-Smith special staff which negotiates the smoking
gun memorandum letting CIA off the hook for reporting narcotics
violations. Anonymous source in Justice tells me that Starr
actually wrote the memo. Starr's own confIrmation hearings
as Independent Council confirm that he worked directly
Smith. MSNBC last week ran footage of Starr walking and
joking with Casey. The CIA report says that the MOU was
negotiated with Smith's special staff.
Late 1994 - Ken Starr appointed IC to investigate Clinton.
Summer 1995 - Coral Baca contacts Gary Webb with nearly
impossible to get Fed. Grand Jury transcripts given to her
by a US Attorney from Texas reportedly connected to contra
era drug shipments. He got a reprimand for giving her the
material. It's in Gary's great book. Coral Baca is irrefutably
connected romantically in an ongoing relationship with Carlos
Lehder, co-founder of the Medellin cartel, imprisoned by
Bush Admin in 1988 or so and later forced to testify against
Noriega - a Medellin ally. I have law enforcement records,
recently unsealed from a court case, in which the IRS believes
that Baca has a child with Lehder.
Lehder is now out of prison, living in the Bahamas and hates
As Starr investigations nail people like Hubbel and McDougal
the Webb stories break to resounding public attention which
baffles the doo doo out of people like me who have been
out here for nearly twenty years trying to garner a sideways
glance. This is especially true after what we knew from
the Kerry report eleven years ago. The single loudest screaming
out about CIA and drugs is Maxine Waters who, for whatever
reason, has still said more publicly than any member of
Congress. Even John Kerry. But, as of now, to no avail.
The CIA visit to So. Central, the IG investigation by Fred
Hitz, the March release of the Starr memo via mail to Maxine
(showing Republican premeditation) and the declassification
of the utterly damning Volume II all take place at the hands
of Clinton appointees, Fred Hitz and George Tenet who take
their orders from no one else.
Maxine Waters becomes Bill Clinton's
irrationally exuberant cheerleader.
March 1998 - About a week after the surprise hearing on
Vol. I on March 16, Maxine gets the smoking letter implicating
Starr in the mail She's surprised that she got it. But it
came from another Clinton appointee either George Tenet
or Fred Hitz - I'm not clear which. At the same time she
does a walking tour of South Central LA with the Federal
Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan. Shortly thereafter her
district receives several hundred million dollars in investment
The declassified version of Volume II is released to the
public on Oct. 8th by George Tenet, one hour after Henry
Hyde's committee votes to begin an impeachment inquiry.
(No doubt at the President's direction here). I know this
because I was talking to Mike Schmitz in Maxine's office
less than an hour after it happened.
Maxine turns really quiet after the revelations in Volume
II. She has issued only one press release and sponsored
one small event in LA at which Gary and I both spoke. Gary
was the featured speaker but community activists raised
a stink and got me time after Maxine's aide said he didn't
want me on the program. She has refused to attend two events
sponsored by the Crack The CIA Coalition since the release
of Volume II and she has done nothing to turn out the tens
of thousands she did at town hall meetings when Gary's stories
first broke. She has withheld her support from other events
around Vol. II in South Central.
Mike Levine who crystallized it for me when I heard him
talking about how the Dems were so angry because they had
let the Republicans off when the Kerry Committee had them
by the cojones eleven years ago and could have impeached
or jailed the whole Reagan-Bush administration.
Feb 11, 1999 - The day before the Senate caved in on the
impeachment vote (Feb. 11) my web page and the published
story on Volume II and the impeachment had four visits from
the US Senate. Subscribers to my newsletter, From The Wilderness,
have seen the proof of this. The Senate had no other business
on Feb. 11 other than the impeachment.
March 1999 - Manuel Noriega's sentence is reduced allowing
him to walk a free man within the next three years. It will
probably be sooner.
If I am right then Maxine will continue to be silent about
Volume II. If I am wrong then she'll turn her energies back
to the unbelievable revelations therein contained. My guess,
sadly, is that since the deal had been made and Clinton
saved his job, the House Intell. Committee under retired
CIA officer Porter Goss may never hold hearings at all.
But that works to our advantage because Volume II is still
on the table and the House must dispose of it.
I have e-mailed back and forth with Gary Webb on this. He
was very skeptical that he had been used. But we all feel
that way when it happens the first time. This is exactly
what the Central Intelligence Agency does. It is their business.
They plant stories in countries overseas to engineer political
events and crises. Anybody who thinks the CIA just gathers
intelligence and sells drugs is a big fool. This is right
out of their manual.
Bill Clinton basically said that if he was going anyway
it wouldn't have mattered what came out about Mena. So he
was going to take everyone else down with him.
But another round begins as leaks surface about Israeli
moles in the White House, Chinese Intelligence penetration
of the White House and Los Alamos and missile technology
sold to the Chinese.
Stay tuned because Vol. II, by design, can be played again,
and again and again... Our job is to heat things up so that
the next time it gets played the whole house of cards comes

is now no doubt that Volume II of the CIA Inspector General's
investigation of Contra Drug trafficking is a part of the
impeachment calculus. Various sources are reporting on the
net that Bill Clinton is threatening to bring down the entire
government with Volume II hearings which are supposed to
occur within the next three weeks. As described in the October
and November issues of my newsletter From The Wilderness,
released October 8th is a virtual confession
by the CIA that it criminally conspired, with premeditation,
to traffic in cocaine during the Contra war.
time Clinton critic, Larry Nichols, released a newsletter
yesterday in which he acknowledged this scenario and attempted
to cut the issue off from reaching former president George
Bush. In that newsletter he stated that although Oliver
North and John Poindexter (both implicated by Vol. II)
guilty of dealing drugs, they were, "rogue elements
who were not a part of the 'racquet club'." This is
a patently false and absurd statement intended to separate
George Bush (hence his sons) from guilt in CIA's fifty
of drug dealing. Nichols is reportedly aligned politically
with Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell who are both supporting
George W. Bush for president in the year 2000.
linking George Bush, the National Security Council and the
White House directly to Contra era drug trafficking is abundant
and irrefutable. It includes (just to list a few items):
Executive Order 12333 and National Security Decision
Directives 2&3 which placed Bush directly in control
of all national security operations including drug interdiction
and the contra war.
fact that Special Forces personnel including
Bill Tyree were ordered to participate in CIA drug mission
during the 1970s when George Bush was Director of Central
Intelligence. Direct evidence of this is contained in a
1998 $63 million federal lawsuit filed in Boston, Tyree
v. CIA, Bush et al. This suit can be referenced at "Tyree".
fact that George Bush was Director of Central
Intelligence when I was first exposed to CIA drug trafficking
and CIA attempted to recruit me through my (then) fiancee
who was a CIA agent.
links to George Bush's staff arising from
investigations into Barry Seal.
investigation by former Federal Public defender
John Mattes which located the phone number of Bush aide
Col. Menarchik in the possession of an alleged gun runner,
Jesus Garcia, connected to drugs.
Webb's magnificent book, Dark
Reed's book Compromised and his witness
statements to the effect that Bill Casey (i.e. George Bush)
had anointed Clinton to become president if he behaved himself.
written testimony of Celerino
Castillo (DEA retired) in which Cele was told by U.S.
Ambassador Edwin Corr that CIA drug dealing out of Ilopango
airfield in El Salvador was a "White House operation."
IX. The written testimony
of Michael C. Ruppert in which I was told by a former
NSC staffer that decisions to deal drugs were made at the
NSC (White House) level.
X. The investigation
of Col. Albert Vincent Carone which shows that Oliver
North's and George Bush's chief bagman had direct links
to both Geo. Bush and Bill Casey.
written record of Senator John Kerrey's investigation
into CIA drug trafficking of eleven years ago which produced
mountains of evidence linking directly to Donald P. Gregg,
Geo, Bush's national security adviser.
the CIA report itself describes special briefings for then
Vice President Bush which indicate his culpability.
drug dealing is not an isolated or rogue event. In the U.S.
v. Roy Reagan, Tucson (1998) former CIA pilot and special
independent counsel Gary Eitel testified that CIA was flying
drugs into Mena, AK as far back as 1972-5.
my opinion Bill Clinton is threatening to scorch the earth
and to bring down the entire government. This becomes even
more likely as Rep Chris Cox's House Committee looking into
technology transfers to China raises the specter of treason
in connection to the Clinton administration. It should be
remembered that many of these transfers began under Geo.
Bush and that the Bush family has extensive business investments
that Volume II of the CIA's Inspector general report In
reviewing the events of the past four years, since Gary
Webb's magnificent stories in The San Jose Mercury News,
I notice a pattern which indicates that the Webb stories
may well have been planted, without his knowledge,
in preparation for just the scenario we see being played
out now. Ken Starr, who authored a memorandum between Reagan
Attorney General William French-Smith and Bill Casey showing
premeditation on the part of CIA and the administration
to deal drugs, was appointed Independent Counsel in late
1994. In the summer of 1995 source Coral Baca showed up
at Gary Webb's doorstep with documents which started his
whole CIA investigation. Coral Baca is now married to the
infamous drug dealer Carlos Lehder who was at one time the
number three man in the Medellin cartel and who was imprisoned
by Geo. Bush and later used as the chief witness against
Bush overthrew the Medellin cartel in favor of the Cali
cartel at the end of the Contra war. That is a motive for
revenge against Bush.
the record, I will restate my belief that William Jefferson
Clinton is guilty of a great many crimes including drug
smuggling at Mena, illegal fundraising and the illegal and
treasonous transfer of technology to China. But Bill Clinton
did not begin this treason and his removal will not end
it. Bill Clinton is a side of the same coin as George Bush
and although they may be feuding with each other they must
both go down, in measure for their crimes, if the truth
is to win out and the American people are to be served.
the record, if I had my choice as to which one of the two
represented the greater evil, I would say George Bush -
without the blink of an eye. I'll give you just two reasons
for that: George W. and Jeb.
have made a number of radio appearances in which I have
discussed parts of the above and my support for Maxine Waters
who has been the single most significant Congressional voice
on the issue of CIA drug dealing. It is possible for me
to support her without saying that I endorse Bill Clinton.
On Dec. 30, I was a guest for three hours on the Sightings radio
program of host Jeff Rense in 35 cities nationwide.
Several of my writings have been posted at various places
on the web. As a result I have received a number of death
threats and other intimidating messages calling me a "nigger
lover", "traitor to my race" etc. and stating,
"We have ways of dealing with your kind".
the record I am proud to have received the endorsement of
a number of African-American groups including the Baptist
Ministerial Conference of Southern California, The National
Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, Kwanzaa,
The Mount Zigurat Baptist Church, Maddads, 1800 Unite-Us,
yes, and even the Panther Vanguard Movement. I will be proud
to die, if necessary, claiming them as advocates of the
truth. We have been pitted against each other by race, sex,
political affiliation, geographic location for too long.
Just as evil knows no color, neither does virtue.
someone shows me a more outspoken leader in Congress on
the issue of CIA and drugs than Maxine Waters then I will
I need now is money and support: money to get to Washington
for hearings and cover the thousands I am spending on mailings
and the web page, and support to distribute this message.
a subsequent message I will tell you of a meeting on January
12 at 46th and Main which will begin the process
of organizing a protest March at the intersection of Florence
and Normandie on April 29, 1999, solely on the
issue of CIA and drugs. We expect 10,000. This March will
include all races, sexes and political viewpoints and it
will demonstrate that the American public does have a voice
and is capable of using it.
