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 for 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 Geo. Bush.

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 credits.

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.

He won.

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 crashing down.

ALERT! 1-1-99
CIA-Drug Report Now A Part of the Impeachment Battle

 Michael Ruppert Receiving Death Threats

There 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,  Volume II, released October 8th is a virtual confession by the CIA that it criminally conspired, with premeditation, to traffic in cocaine during the Contra war.

Long 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) were 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 years 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.

Evidence 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):

I.                 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.

II.               The 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".

III.             The 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.

IV.            Direct links to George Bush's staff arising from investigations into Barry Seal.

V.              The 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.

VI.            Gary Webb's magnificent book, Dark Alliance.

VII.          Terry 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.

VIII.        The 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.

XI.            The 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.

Even the CIA report itself describes special briefings for then Vice President Bush which indicate his culpability.

CIA 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.

In 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 in China.

Note 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 Manuel Noriega.

George 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.

For 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.

For 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.


I 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".

For 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.

When someone shows me a more outspoken leader in Congress on the issue of CIA and drugs than Maxine Waters then I will support them.

What 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.

In 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.
