Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 61

("Quid coniuratio est?")


By Sherman H. Skolnick

Some military flag officers and Vice President Al Gore are closely watching Bill Clinton. Is a crisis coming? Part of it revolves around the crash, off Long Island, New York, of TWA Flight 800 which had been enroute to Paris. Some background:

More than 60 French nationals died in the crash. Two top officials of the French Secret Police were scheduled to be onboard Flight 800 but, at the last moment, took another flight. Five or more of their assistants, however, died in the crash. By the way, what were the French CIA brass doing so much in the United States? Were they trying to determine if there is a U.S. military coup in the works against Clinton?

The Clinton White House blocked the French government's efforts to send 300 of their own divers and experts to scour the ocean bottom for what really happened. It was only then that Clinton ordered a supposed full-scale U.S. ocean search for victims and pieces of the crashed plane.

Since at least the early 1960s and DeGaulle, France has not trusted the United States. At the time, they withdrew from NATO and turned their missiles to face the U.S. Undercover operatives of the French CIA infiltrated the plot to assassinate President Kennedy in 1963. Their explosive details of a high-level American CIA and military cabal were in a European best-seller in 14 languages and published in English in Belgium in 1968, and written under a pen-name. Then and now the Washington government forbids U.S. bookstores to sell the book, called "Farewell America."

Only two Americans were able to smuggle the books into the U.S. I was one of them and gave away copies at college lectures in the 1970s in return for small donations. No copies are left now.

Like with the book "Farewell America," the Paris government again has the smoking gun that this time could topple the Clinton White House. The pilot of a French civilian airplane here says he swerved his plane to avoid a missile. French airlines are equipped with a special onboard video taping system. French TV has the video tape and so far has embargoed it. (French TV also beams to Chicago via satellite. Their up-link and down-link are on top of a public access cable TV facility in Chicago.) The French CIA also has the video tape which, if aired, could wreck the Clinton White House efforts to stonewall Flight 800 details.

A former ABC News correspondent stationed in Paris, Pierre Salinger, says he has inside data from French intelligence as well as the U.S. Secret Service showing that Flight 800 was shot down by a U.S. Navy missile. (Was the shoot-down by accident or otherwise? Some contend the plane had onboard hundreds of billions of dollars of counterfeit bonds, so well made they could be used to topple either the U.S. or a foreign government. Which? Apparently, every other effort to stop the circulation and transport of the bonds has met with failure. Was the situation also like Pan Am Flight 103? Which had onboard, when it was bombed and crashed, somewhere between 8 and 50 CIA personnel returning from a failed hostage rescue mission; some of them subpoenaed to testify before a Congressional committee of treasonous meddling by George Bush. The Flight 103 was brought down 6 weeks after Bush was elected President in 1988.)

By the way, some contend an American publisher suppressed a book by Salinger about the treason of Bush in a Paris suburb and elsewhere in Europe, in October, 1980, arranging to delay release of U.S. hostages held by Iran. Bush's treachery was to make Jimmy Carter appear to be a wimp and to benefit the Reagan/Bush election ticket. It is called the "October Surprise" scenario. The hostages were released in January, 1981, a few moments after Reagan was inaugurated the new President. (And who all was it that shot at Reagan some weeks thereafter?)

Clinton could have avoided the apparent crisis about Flight 800 by quickly, after the crash, apologizing to the families of those who perished, stating [that] by accident a U.S. missile downed the plane. But: how would he apologize to the families of the French nationals who perished? And to the families of the French Secret Police?

Note: The TWA Flight 800 crash was in July, 1996. In July, 1988, in a similar mishap, like with Flight 800 (assuming Flight 800 was just an "accident"), an aegis-class missile cruiser downed an Iranian civilian airplane killing, like with Flight 800, several hundred people. (Some use the analogy to posit an Iranian terrorist missile scenario against Flight 800.) On the Iranian crash, see: the book "The Line of Fire" by Admiral William J. Crowe, Jr., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

In published accounts, Pierre Salinger is quoted as saying that he had the document on Flight 800 five weeks before he disclosed it a few days after Clinton's 1996 re-election. Salinger says some "very important people" had advised him not to reveal it until after the November 5th election because "officials won't tell the truth until after the American election." (Chicago Tribune, 11/9/96). {1}.

The French are apparently aware of a U.S. military coup against Clinton -- several attempts since 1995 have been violently snuffed out -- such as the planeload of generals and such, killed in a sabotaged plane crash in Alabama on April 17, 1995, two days before the Oklahoma bombings (which some contend was an ATF "sting" that went wrong.)

In this crisis, Al Gore reportedly is joining with the flag officers -- Admirals and Generals -- to remove Clinton: (1) as provided under the military code, with flag officers and others arresting and charging Commander-in-Chief Clinton with treason and sedition (which would be their defense if Clinton charges them with mutiny.) And (2) under the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Gore as Vice President, joining with other Executive Department officials, to unseat Clinton, making Gore the Acting President. Gore reportedly plans to name John D. Rockefeller IV, called Jay, the appointed, not elected, new Vice President. Does Gore have enough life insurance? Jay itches to be the unelected President.

---------------------------<< Notes >>--------------------------- {1} Or did Salinger wait until after the election because releasing the info before the election might be perceived as just "dirty politics," in other words, just political propaganda? Releasing the info after the election removes the stigma of pre-election propaganda.
