Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 97

("Quid coniuratio est?")


                 By "Mr. Mercedes" (Pseudonym)


By the way, the Washington Post supposedly paid many thousands of dollars to Roger Morris and Sally Denton for their story on Mena, but after 11 weeks of delays they pulled it because they felt they were getting jacked around and got Bob Guccione to publish it in Penthouse 7/95. Also, Terry Reed has a book coming out on Barry Seal/Mena, Arkansas. Another book project now underway is the story of the CIA's drug op in New York with NYPD cop and "made man" "Big Al" Carone, former Colonel in Army Intel. Carone was the "bagman" for NYPD, friend of DCI Bill Casey, and "banker" for the CIA's drugs op from 1946-80 (died of "CIA flu"), along with other "bagmen" associates, Russell Herman (also died of "CIA flu") and "fixer/briber" Al Hobert and NYPD "dirty" cop Gene Howard who were all "on the take."

Two more CIA drug smuggling ops reports were broadcast on TV. One program was done by Mike Wallace of "60 Minutes" which re-broadcast his 2-year-old report on 9/3/95 about a Venezuelan Cartel/CIA supposed cocaine smuggling sting operation. Unfortunately, this CIA op allowed many millions of dollars of powder to hit the streets of America, without ever busting anyone. The other one was a British TV Ch. 4 broadcast of the suppressed "The Maltese Doublecross" documentary on Pan Am 103's heroin smuggling operation which presented witnesses and evidence which showed that this may very well have been the real reason for the bomb explosion which killed all passengers on board.

As for the CIA/NSA computer operation, it would appear that it is relatively new and extremely lucrative. Estimates of just how profitable this operation is range into the hundreds of millions of dollars, which goes to funding "off the books" Black Ops, now that Congress, with only a slightly higher degree of scrutiny, has cut back on their funding.

James Norman, Bill Hamilton and many others state that in the early 1980s the government expropriated Inslaw's revolutionary and proprietary PROMIS software after Bill Hamilton had created an advanced version of PROMIS which was originally developed while he was at the NSA. It was based on computer aided software engineering technologies which used software to create and modify software, thus enabling PROMIS to be modified to a multitude of applications because of its inherent versatility and adaptability. The government realized its numerous applications such as applying it to the secret purpose of tracking down terrorist money in international banking.

The CIA, with operatives such as Oliver North and Ted Shackley, purportedly used this very "adaptable" PROMIS to create secret bank accounts through "computerized money laundering" for the purpose of financing CIA covert ops, such as Iran-Contra and Iraqgate. This led to another application, wherein the NSA/CIA used it to create a compromised universal banking system which could be secretly accessed by their bugged software, sold by NSA "front companies" to unsuspecting banks, which allowed them [NSA/CIA] to access secret accounts anywhere around the world.

Additionally, specially designed NSA chips have been placed in computers, along with Inslaw's stolen PROMIS Plus, which are then sold through these NSA "front companies," such as Systematics, Boston Systematics, Hadron and Israeli Systematics and agents, such as Robert Maxwell, to strategic and highly sensitive ally and enemy customers alike. (Related articles and info: Time 8/19/95 "Onward Cyber Soldier," New York Times 8/19 "Citibank Fraud Case Raises Computer Questions," Wall Street Journal's and Wang Laboratories' John A. Dean 3/3/95 letter to DCI John Woolsley.)

Purportedly, these bugged computers are set up to transmit their sensitive information within by data bursts up to low-flying NSA satellites. Inslaw and their Atlanta law firm, with the assistance of attorney Eliott Richardson (Pres. Nixon's former Attorney General who resigned in protest over Watergate), are preparing to go back into the Court of Federal Claims in December '95 after a more than 10-year battle to seek a multi-hundred million dollar judgement for non-payment of royalties. A number of knowledgeable people state that if PROMIS's advanced software was stolen and used since the early 1980s for numerous applications such as in our nuclear subs and nuclear missile defense system, Inslaw should be owed in excess of half a billion dollars.

Some politicians and journalists privately, with only a few publicly, have supported Inslaw's position that the government stole their PROMIS software, but almost all have been unwilling to really investigate and go public with the real facts. Seymour Hersh, one of a few to attempt to get the whole Inslaw story out, recently researched and proposed an article for the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, and Atlantic Monthly, but unfortunately they all passed.

Even a House investigation and retired Federal Judge Nicholas J. Bua's grand jury 1993 investigation in Chicago didn't get to the bottom of this government scandal, possibly because of the magnitude of the situation. Attorney General Barr appointed Bua as a Special Counsel, but he was really a "dependent counsel." Even though Chuck Hayes, who secured many of the witnesses (such as Ari Ben-Menashe) did testify, Michael Riconosciuto along with many [other] witnesses didn't in person or at all. The Judge was sued for not conducting a proper investigation by Chicago investigative journalist Sherman Skolnick and Michael Riconosciuto. Bua submitted a "whitewashed" report to Attorney General Reno, who turned it over to the White House who did nothing... except send Inslaw information in a secure envelope to Vince Foster shortly before his death.

Debra Gorham, former secretary to Vince Foster and William Kennedy, her prior boss, secretly testified before Senate Whitewater Committee on 6/23/95. In addition to Webster Hubbell, William Kennedy was another Rose Law Firm partner who resigned at the White House under a scandal and, also as Jackson Stephen's attorney in 1984, he filed incomplete information with the Federal Reserve about Stephens's family holding in Worthen Bank (New York Times 5/9/95 "Fed Ends Inquiry Into an Arkansas Family").

In her confidential testimony, Debra Gorham disclosed a key point wherein she stated that Vince Foster gave her two NSA 1-inch ringed binders (Ambrose Evans-Pritchard's London Sunday Telegraph 8/6 article and Debra Gorham's excerpted confidential transcripts) which she put in Bernard Nussbaum's safe. Debra Gorham described one binder as blue; it may well have been our nuclear missile launch codes which control the entire U.S. missile defense system -- the ultimate power. These codes access any missile and can launch it wherever programmed.

Also, at a later public Whitewater Senate hearing on 8/1/95, Senator Faircloth's aide confirmed that Debra Gorham was instructed by her counsel to say, "I do not recall," when he passed a hurriedly written note before her to respond to the Senator's question, "Did Foster ever get any documents on Systematics or Inslaw?" In direct contradiction to her sworn testimony, through a confidential friend, Gorham admitted receiving and even reading some of a secure letter on Inslaw from Webster Hubbell. Although it might be hard to prove, since she only admitted through her friend that she was familiar with Inslaw from the previous Washington, D.C. law firm employer, there can be no doubt that Gorham lied to Congress about not receiving a letter on Inslaw.

Chuck Hayes and other highly placed confidential sources have stated that Vince Foster, as a NSA secret operative since the late '70s and a partner at Rose Law Firm, worked on secret and clandestine matters at Systematics (owned by Jackson Stephens). Larry Nichols, a former Arkansas friend of Clinton's, has stated that a Systematics employee, who is afraid of being fired, confirmed to him that Foster came in shortly before his death, flashing NSA credentials, and demanded that this person run a secret program for him, which he did. After Foster's death, this same Systematics employee asked Larry Nichols if anything he did for Vince Foster could have been a reason for his death. In a significant development, Rep. Leach, Chairman of the Whitewater hearings, may be prepared to subpoena this person and therefore force him to testify when the hearings commence around the end of September, but don't count on him being called or showing up.
