(By Chip Tatum) I have chosen to republish this article from “The Intercept”, as it somewhat represents how the CIA and others of our government agencies and proprietary companies can come together and cover one another’s misdeeds. Gary Webb was in fact the target of government retribution. The story of Oliver North’s direct involvement in the manufacturing of cocaine during the 80’s in Nicaragua is well documented in the media, congressional testimony, and federal court testimony. The error in the charges and ensuing investigation was so slight that most of us would not realize the cover-up. The scope of the investigation outlined is as follows: “Was the CIA complicit into introducing “crack” cocaine into the United States?” By restricting the scope of the investigation as such, the results were predetermined. The CIA was not complicit in introducing “crack” cocaine into the United States. We shipped Cocaine!
Oliver North oversaw the production and shipment of cocaine into the United States. Utilizing the assets of the United States government at his disposal, i.e. the United States Army flying support missions in Honduras and Nicaragua, the United States Air Force flying support in Honduras, the Enterprise, a group of companies formed by North and his accomplices, the Nicaraguan Contras, infamous drug pilot Barry Seal among others including myself, shipped tons of high grade cocaine and other drugs into the U.S. They did not ship “Crack” cocaine to the U.S. To most there is not much difference, but in legaleaze it is a huge difference.
Gary Webb’s investigation was in error as he erroneously stated that the CIA was introducing Crack Cocaine into the inner cities instead of the high grade coke that was being manufactured by Oliver North’s Contra’s in Nicaragua. If you have not read The Tatum Chronicles, you should. In this book I have published the flight plans of various military flights delivering Cocaine and government personnel to various locations in Central America. The Chronicles are available on Amazon or from my office Click Here However this use of Central and South American assets was in place thanks to the deployment of a young man into Venezuela in 1977. While assigned in Venezuela, he was key in building an organization which continues today. The Assets name, John Ellis (Jeb) Bush. ….
The 9/11 narrative in the mainstream media has taken on a new slant. The FBI is now accused of whitewashing Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
The alleged Saudi involvement in supporting Osama bin Laden, not to mention the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 joint Congressional inquiry pertaining to the insidious role of Saudi Arabia in supporting the hijackers is part of a propaganda ploy.
When the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it was met with considerable skepticism. That skepticism grew for a period of time but then was reduced to speculation about what was contained in the 28 pages that had been redacted by the Bush White House.
Various U.S. government leaders have since suggested that the missing 28 pages point to Saudi Arabia’s complicity in the 9/11 crimes. However such musings fail to discuss other important issues, like the links between the Saudi regime and the Western deep state, or the fact that, from the start, even the Saudis were calling for the 28 pages to be released. Discussion of the missing 28 pages also omits mention of the highly suspicious nature of the Inquiry’s investigation and its leaders. (Kevin Ryan, The 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry and the 28 Missing Pages, Global Research, March 14, 2014 ….
And now agencies of the US government including the FBI are being accused of protecting the Saudis. This alleged Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks has served to precipitate segments of the 9/11 Truth movement into an erroneous and contradictory discourse. On the part of the US government and its intelligence apparatus, the objective is to ultimately to build a narrative which will weaken the 9/11 Truth movement.
The purpose of this new propaganda ploy is ultimately to sustain the legend that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks and that Saudi Arabia relentlessly supported Al Qaeda, namely that Saudi Arabia acted as a “state sponsor of terrorism”.
In this regard, the media reports intimate that if the Saudi connection is confirmed by the 28 classified pages, this “would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government.”
There is, however, an obvious hiccup in this reasoning: if the Saudis were indeed the State sponsors of 9/11, why on earth did the US and the Atlantic Alliance (under the doctrine of collective security) choose to wage a “Just War” of retribution against Afghanistan. Did they get their countries mixed up? ….
The key figure behind this new wave of propaganda is former Senator Bob Graham, who led the joint inquiry of the Senate and the House intelligence committees together with Rep. Porter Goss, a career CIA official who was subsequently appointed Director of National Intelligence (DNI) by the Bush administration. Graham coordinated the drafting and editing of the report including the 28 classified pages on Saudi Arabia.
While Graham is now heralded by the mainstream media as a 911 Truther, the evidence suggests that immediately in the wake of 9/11, he was involved (together with Porter Goss) in a coverup on behalf of Bush-Cheney. …
The Washington Post published a story so horrifying this weekend that it would stop your breath: “The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.”
What went wrong? The Post continues:“Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far.” The shameful, horrifying errors were uncovered in a massive, three-year review by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Innocence Project. Following revelations published in recent years, the two groups are helping the government with the country’s largest ever post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.
Chillingly, as the Post continues, “the cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death.” Of these defendants, 14 have already been executed or died in prison. …
