I saw a very disturbing and enlightening video on drugs, the CIA, and American government corruption last night. The title is CONSPIRACY, THE SECRET STORY, THE SECRET BEAT OF AMERICA – The CIA and Drugs. New Science Ideas is the producer. Every American should see this video.
It seems that people abroad know more about the CIA than most Americans. Of course there is a reason for this. Our media is censored in the name of “national security” matters. National security, as you will learn, is an issue that pops up in the strangest places.
America’s drug trade costs us more than $ 16 billion a year and has killed more people than the Vietnam War. Who benefits and who is responsible? Follow the money.
Ironically, when First Lady Nancy Reagan said, “Just say no to drugs.” the CIA and Barry Seal brought them from Medellín, Colombia. The agency used the money from the cocaine it once sold in the US to buy and bring weapons to the counterrevolutionaries in Nicaragua. Oliver North was very involved in the fiasco.
Anyone in Mena, Arkansas who tried to expose this ring of corruption, including the chief prosecutor, was threatened or killed. When two young men saw a drug fall along the railroad tracks in Arkansas, they were immediately run over. The cover-up ran through state and local government. President Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas at the time. He played along by keeping quiet and then got a lot of drug money donated to his presidential campaigns.
President Bush was no less guilty as a former CIA director. His watchful eye and his reading of CIA reports, which he, as a former president, still reads on a daily basis, make him equally responsible during his tenure as vice president. At least they understood that word vice, right?
The people who caused the cocaine epidemic that swept the nation during the 1980s were not the African-Americans from the ghetto. Many of them in those days could barely cash a paycheck, much less smuggle drugs by plane into the country. When the US has satellite technology capable of reading what is written on a golf ball, there should be no difficulty in tracking down drug traffickers and Bin Laden. That is unless you are covertly working with them.
A three-year investigation into the life and times of Barry Seal, one of the most famous CIA agents and successful drug dealers in American history, revealed the extent of government corruption across the United States.
When Mena, Arkansas was discussed during Oliver North’s trial, everything was suddenly locked in confined spaces away from public view. Why? What does the government know that it does not want the American people to know?
When international drug distribution organizations are vertically integrated throughout our government, there is room for concern. Dan Harmon was involved in obstruction of justice locally in Saline County, Arkansas. He was charged and found guilty on 5 of 11 counts. Sucking on the tit of shameful government undercover operations, Harmon was never charged with murder in the two train deaths. After his release from prison, Harmon was promoted. I guess it pays to stay connected and play along.
New Orleans attorney Sam Dalton said poignantly: “When the government gets involved in activities like the CIA and begins to warn about natural events and the natural course of history, that’s where the government itself becomes the criminal. All of this is hidden in plain sight. ” If you want a scandal, investigate the net worth of retired DEA agents and fix it.
With Barry Seal and the CIA working the drug trade, they found some obedient and cooperative governors in the Deep South. Hence the list of subsequent presidents elected from the south.
The FBI went to the New Orleans police office and seized the trunk and left with it, when Barry Seal was killed. The state judge had to back attorney Sam Dalton and hold the FBI in contempt of court to obtain the evidence he needed for the discovery. Sam Dalton also wanted to subpoena the CIA, but was unable to do so.
Jaws isn’t done until the sheriff meets the shark. Mena, Arkansas proved to be the largest drug delivery point in the entire country, a $ 130 billion dollar industry. Apparently, it’s easy enough to fund a government sting operation, when the entire airport staff is willing to play along. Woodward writes about the CIA’s secret wars from 1981 to 1987. The Clintons were partners in power.
To see the real culprits look around the periphery, not the smoking gun, but the bent twigs. Be aware of deaths, layoffs, threats, and attacks on people in the know. Dan Lasater, a convicted drug lord, was a huge Clinton supporter. Jerry Parks, the head of Governor Clinton’s security detail, was shot dead after telling associates he was a dead man a month after Vince Foster’s death. Arkansas criminal investigator Russell Welch had military grade poison anthrax sprayed in his face to investigate the cover-up.
Arkansas State Coroner Bobby Malick (an Egyptian) played along stating that he never made a mistake in 7000 autopsies. When the two young men who were killed on the train tracks for seeing a drug fall, Malick claimed it was suicide. When the parents didn’t believe it, he decided to tell them that the children had high amounts of marijuana in their systems. However, the second autopsy revealed that there had been stabbings along with a bruise to the face from what appeared to be a rifle butt. The children’s lungs had 3 times the normal amount of blood, indicating that they were not killed by the impact of a train.
Sheriff Jim Stead, another participant in the cover-up, called it a thorough investigation. The boy’s mother did not agree considering that her son’s foot was left lying on the train tracks for 2 days. The green tarp seen by many after the train crash also cast doubt on a government cover-up.
Prosecutor Jean Duffey was one of the few who didn’t play along. They threatened her and she finally ran out of town. She thought her life was in danger and moved to Houston, TX, where she now teaches geometry in high school. Duffey was appointed to head a federally funded drug task force in Arkansas. The day she was named, Gary Arnold came in and told her that she should not use the task force to investigate any public official.
Duffey was put in charge of half a dozen undercover agents. They couldn’t buy much more than on the street, but when they began to connect public officials with the protection of drug traffickers, Dan Harmon’s name appeared immediately and more frequently. The train deaths became the most famous unsolved mystery in Arkansas history. It received national attention and 1,000 newspapers wrote about it. However, possible witnesses were found dead.
The drug drops from low-flying planes, which local residents reported hearing many nights, were never investigated by any law enforcement agency in the district. The drugs were being dumped in the same neighborhood where Kevin and Don had been killed along the train tracks.
The prosecutor Jean Duffey was the target of a smear campaign. Basically, he was getting too close to the seventh judicial district. Hence they fired her to cover their asses. In 1991, drug task force secret agent Scott Loellen resigned and said, “There is too much dirt behind the scenes.” Served in Saline, Grant, and Hot Springs counties. He later spoke ill of the anti-drug task force saying: “That district is immersed in a reign of corruption that has important and powerful connections with political, judicial and law enforcement officials.”
As an undercover officer, Scott gathered evidence of illegal activity, but for whatever reason, the drug task force decided to ignore him. He resigned due to the firing of Jean Duffey, the administrator of the anti-drug task force.
In June 1990, Dan Harmon became an elected district attorney. Harmon’s first press conference and interview was used entirely to discredit Jean Duffey, who was eliminated and forced to flee to Houston, TX, as her life was in danger.
Prosecutor Dan Harmon was on the trail the night the boys were killed. The state police weren’t doing their job either. The mothers of the deceased children were promised convictions in the 1990 federal investigation, when suddenly Chuck Banks closed the investigation in June 1991.
Another piece of evidence that ties it all together was the fact that in the 1980s a former senior CIA official had a second home in Medellín, Colombia.
Some other juicy information tidbits. Oliver North’s first national program office was at Laguna Airfield, where 1,400 pounds of cocaine were found on the runway.
CIA-owned and operated Southern Air Transport provided the agency with a subcontractor for plausible denial while they were engaged in the drugs and arms trade. The privatization of American intelligence is the way the agency works.
The 60-minute British version, The Big Story, showed the trail of drug smuggling and arms trafficking leading to the door of the White House. He exposed the government’s clumsy cover-ups spanning seven investigations and a few long and frustrating years. The program revealing the cocaine connection was immediately banned in the US within hours of its launch.
During the days of Oliver North’s trial, about 500 documents were shredded in 3 days. All of our enemies knew it, but North wanted to hide it and keep it from Congress. Even surfers in Nicaragua named a surf spot after the agency’s base there. As for Mena, Arkansas was home to Operation Black Eagle, the most massive covert operation in United States history.
1101 Mena St. is the location of the secret history of our life and times as a drug and arms trafficking nation. It is a dark little town in western Arkansas with a population of around 5,000 people. With no tower and with flight monitoring, Barry Seal found that Mena was the perfect place to fly in and out without being checked. Barry brought up to $ 5 billion worth of cocaine to the US during the 1980s. Mena was where he based his cargo airline and parked his one of three C123 jets making trips to Colombia and Nicaragua.
The mere mention of Mena has chilled government propaganda officials for years. It’s good to see the Democrats and Republicans working together on something. America’s doping is truly a bipartisan cover-up.
