“The government aligned themselves with Epstein, working against his victims, for 11 years,’’ Edwards said. “Yes, this is a huge victory, but to make his victims suffer for 11 years, this should not have happened. Instead of admitting what they did, and doing the right thing, they spent 11 years fighting these girls.’’

How I Learned Not to Love Big Brother

Defeated in the public arena, the CIA retreated to the shadows and retaliated by tugging at every thread in the threadbare life of a graduate student. Over the next few months, federal officials from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare turned up at Yale to investigate my graduate fellowship. The Internal Revenue Service audited my poverty-level income. The FBI tapped my New Haven telephone (something I learned years later from a class-action lawsuit).

CIA / MEDIA COLLABORATORS DESTROYED GARY WEBB

The CIA watched these developments closely, collaborating where it could with outlets who wanted to challenge Webb’s reporting. Media inquiries had started almost immediately following the publication of “Dark Alliance,” and Dujmovic in “Managing a Nightmare” cites the CIA’s success in discouraging “one major news affiliate” from covering the [Contra Cocaine] story. 

Congressional committee:

…Contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers. In each case, one or another agency of the U.S. government had information regarding the involvement either while it was occurring, or immediately thereafter.”

The chief of the CIA’s Central America Task Force was also quoted as saying, “With respect to (drug trafficking) by the Resistance Forces…it is not a couple of people. It is a lot of people.”

What is it with Americans and torture?  For a movie that does a lot right, the ease and familiarity it has with the good guys resorting to torture is evidence of a pervasive sickness in this society.  We’re a technological level up on the Romans, reveling in bloodlust in cinema, rather than at the coliseum.

A lot of the world rejected this barbarism a long time ago, including our own nation, as the statutes against torture show.  World War Two and a lot of real torture changed minds on this medieval savagery.  Torture was outlawed, and the world was better off as a result.  The film had a chance to address this and failed.

Of course the bad guys resort to torture, but that’s not the problem here.  As with a long and frustrating list of other Hollywood mainstream product, this film says it’s okay to torture people — in this case water boarding and beating — when the joking jovial lead actors get on board.

So Marky Mark and Denzel want to know something from their captured drug lord.  Torture, of course.  Jokes wash away moral concerns.

It sounds like I had a terrible time with this film, but I didn’t.  It was a short segment.  More torture flows from the very same drug lord in a reversal, and more torture still from a CIA guy.  That’s three, lots of torture.  Do Americans care about much else?

Oh yeah, money.  There’s lots of that too.  Money, torture, bullets and explosions.  It’s not high art — but damn if they didn’t get the CIA drug smuggling partnership right.  So, we actually have some real shit up on screen to discuss, the real state of narcotics trafficking, the real impunity of CIA and their despicable record of partnering with the worst scum on the planet.  That might ring a note for some out there.  It should have been explored more deeply, but I’ll take it.

In the special features Denzel called it escapism, with no meaning whatsoever, that he could discern.  Not so.  It never is.

Here’s your Holy Shit moment of the day:

That’s because the detailed 35-page affidavit supporting the request for a search warrant of Don and Bill Whittington’s air charter company filed at the United States District Court in Grand Junction Colorado has been sealed.

But not, thankfully, before it was discovered and leaked onto the Internet in an exclusive story by reporter Joe Hamel from The Durango Herald in Durango Colorado…

““On September 24, 2007, a 1975 Gulfstream II turbo jet bearing tail number N987SA crashed in the Yucatan Peninsula while carrying 3723 kilograms of cocaine, which was recovered by the Mexican Government, as documented by DEA Mexico City.”

“N987SA was owned by Donna Blue Aircraft Inc, which was subsequently identified as a front company for a Tampa Florida-based ICE undercover operation named Operation Mayan Jaguar.” (emphasis Hopsicker.)”

Hopsicker and MadCow on the case — earth shattering stories you will never, ever find on controlled corporate news…

“Another recent example is Juan Carlos Abadia. The DEA called him the biggest drug cartel boss since Pablo Escobar, the leader of the world’s biggest drug cartel, and the man responsible for exporting more than 500 tons of cocaine—worth in excess of $10 billion to the United States.

Yet when Abadia pled guilty to drug trafficking and racketeering in a US Federal Court in 2011, not one newspaper in America covered his conviction. It went completely unreported. The DEA didn’t didn’t even issue a press release.”

Hopsicker makes some connections, and he claims that Barry Seal may have been the getaway pilot in Dallas.

I wish he hadn’t mentioned the World Trade Center, with an unfounded dismissal of thermite (a valid theory with some supporting evidence).

Still, Barry Seal is a key figure in decades of CIA blessed drug trafficking, other conspiracies that need to be exposed.

Almost 12 weeks after the terrorist atrocity at New York’s World Trade Center, there is at least one fire still burning in the rubble – it is the longest-burning structural fire in history.

silencer

Illegal silencers manufactured by mechanic / linked to mercenary firm CACI:

In an interview with The Washington Post, Robles said he was stunned to learn that Landersman had re-sold the silencers to CACI and the Navy for $1.6 million. “Are you kidding me?” he said. A CACI spokesman did not return phone calls or an email seeking comment. Soon after CACI paid for the work, the recently bankrupt Landersman went on a shopping spree, according to charging documents and affidavits filed by federal investigators…

In February, the silencers were delivered to a Naval Research Laboratory warehouse in Chesapeake Beach, Md. NCIS agents seized the silencers two months later.

The silencers were unmarked and untraceable, despite a federal law requiring all firearms manufacturers to imprint them with a serial number and the name of the maker.

Why the silencers were ordered at all remains unclear….

The intelligence official said that the silencers were designed for the “AK family of firearms,” a reference to Kalashnikov rifles such as the AK-47.

Cocaine Jet That Crashed in Mexico Part of Cowboy Government Operation, DEA Sources Claim

Mexican Officials Fear the Case, if Exposed, Could Jeopardize US Funding for “Plan Mexico”

By Bill Conroy
Special to The Narco News Bulletin

December 19, 2007

The Gulfstream II jet that crash landed in the Mexican Yucatan in late September carrying close to four tons of cocaine was part of an operation being carried out by a Department of Homeland Security agency, DEA sources have revealed to Narco News.

The operation, codenamed “Mayan Express,” is an ongoing effort spearheaded by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the sources claim. The information surfaced during a high-level meeting at DEA headquarters in mid-December, DEA sources familiar with the meeting assert.

Those sources have requested anonymity out of fear they will be retaliated against by the government for revealing the information.

The operation also appears to be badly flawed, the sources say, because it is being carried out unilaterally, (Rambo-style), by ICE and without the knowledge of the Mexican government — at least it was up until the point of the coke-packed Gulfstream jet’s abrupt impact with the Earth.

“This is a case of ICE running amok,” one DEA source told Narco News. “If this [operation] was being run by the book, they would not be doing it unilaterally” – without the participation of DEA – “and without the knowledge of the Mexican government.”

“British people have lately witnessed a tragedy, and we lived through it together, when right in the streets of London a British army serviceman was brutally murdered outside his barracks,” Putin said.

“Is it these people that the Europeans want to supply arms? What happens next with those weapons? Who will control in which hands they end up? They could possibly (end up) in Europe.””

“”We are supplying weapons under legal contracts to the legal government. That is the government of President Assad. And if we are going to sign such contracts, we are going to deliver,” the Russian president said.”
