Drugs, CIA and the US – Ore, Arkansas Cover-Up
I watched a very disturbing and insightful video about drugs, the CIA, and US government corruption last night. The title is CONSPIRACY, THE SECRET STORY, THE SECRET BEAT OF AMERICA – The CIA and drugs. New Science Ideas is the producer. Every American should see this video.
It seems that people abroad know more about the CIA than most Americans. Of course there is a reason for this. Our media is censored in the name of “national security” matters. National security, as you’ll learn, is a topic that pops up in the strangest of places.
Doping America costs us more than $16 billion a year and has killed more people than the Vietnam War. Who benefits and who is responsible? Follow the money.
Ironically, when First Lady Nancy Reagan would say, “Just say no to drugs.” the CIA and Barry Seal brought them from Medellín, Colombia. The agency used money from the cocaine it once sold in the US to buy and bring weapons to counterrevolutionaries in Nicaragua. Oliver North was heavily involved in the fiasco.
Anyone in Mena, Arkansas who tried to expose this ring of corruption, including the lead prosecutor, was threatened or killed. When two young men saw a drug drop next to the train tracks in Arkansas, they were immediately run over. The cover-up ran through the local and state government. President Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas at the time. He played along by keeping quiet and later got a lot of drug money donated to his presidential campaigns.
President Bush was no less guilty as a former CIA director. His watchful eye and his reading of CIA reports, which he, as a former president, still reads on a daily basis, make him equally responsible during his tenure as vice president. At least they understood that word vice, right?
The people who caused the cocaine epidemic that swept the nation during the 1980s were not African Americans from the ghetto. Many of them in those days could barely cash a paycheck, let alone smuggle drugs into the country by plane. When the US has satellite technology capable of reading what is written on a golf ball, there should be no difficulty in tracking drug dealers and bin Laden. That is unless you are covertly working with them.
A three-year investigation into the life and times of Barry Seal, one of the most famous CIA agents and successful drug dealers in American history, has revealed the extent of government corruption across the United States.
When Mena, Arkansas, was discussed during the Oliver North trial, suddenly everything was locked in enclosed spaces away from public view. Because? What does the government know that it doesn’t want the American people to know?
When international drug distribution organizations become vertically integrated throughout our government, there is room for concern. Dan Harmon was involved in local obstruction of justice in Saline County, Arkansas. He was charged and found guilty on 5 of 11 counts. Sucking on the teat of shameful secret government operations, Harmon was never charged with murder in the two train deaths. After his release from prison, Harmon was promoted. I guess it pays to stay connected and play along.
New Orleans attorney Sam Dalton poignantly said: “When the government gets involved in activities like the CIA and starts warning about natural events and the natural course of history, that’s where the government itself becomes the criminal. This is all hiding in plain sight.” If you want a scandal, research the net worth of retired DEA agents and fix it. If the American people don’t get the government to start behaving soon, we’re going to reach the point of no return.”
With Barry Seal and the CIA working the drug trade, they found some obedient and cooperative governors in the Deep South. Hence the list of subsequent presidents elected from the south.
The FBI went to the New Orleans police office and seized the trunk and left with it, when Barry Seal died. The state judge had to back attorney Sam Dalton and hold the FBI in contempt of court to get the evidence he needed for discovery. Sam Dalton also wanted to subpoena the CIA, but he couldn’t do it.
Jaws doesn’t end until the sheriff meets the shark. Mena, Arkansas, proved to be the largest drug delivery point in the entire country, a $130 billion dollar industry. Apparently, it’s easy enough to finance a government sting operation when the entire airport staff is willing to play along. Woodward writes about the CIA’s secret wars 1981-1987. The Clintons were partners in power.
To see the real culprits look around the periphery, not the smoking gun, but the bent twigs. Be aware of deaths, layoffs, threats, and attacks on people you know. Dan Lasater, a convicted drug dealer, was a big Clinton supporter. Jerry Parks, the head of Governor Clinton’s security detail, was killed in a hail of gunfire after telling his associates that he was a dead man a month after Vince Foster’s death. Arkansas criminal investigator Russell Welch was sprayed in the face with military-grade poisonous anthrax to investigate the cover-up.
Arkansas State Coroner Bobby Malick (an Egyptian) played along by claiming he never made a mistake in 7000 autopsies. When the two young men who were killed on the train tracks by seeing a drug drop, Malick claimed it was suicide. When the parents didn’t believe him, he decided to tell them that the children had high amounts of marijuana in their systems. However, the second autopsy revealed that stabbings had occurred along with a bruise to the face from what appeared to be a rifle butt. The children’s lungs had 3 times the normal amount of blood, indicating that they did not die from the impact of a train.
Sheriff Jim Stead, another participant in the cover-up, called it a thorough investigation. The boy’s mother disagreed considering that her son’s foot was left lying on the train tracks for 2 days. The green tarp seen by many after the train crash also cast doubt on a government cover-up.
Prosecutor Jean Duffey was one of the few who did not play along. They threatened her and she finally ran out of town. She thought her life was in danger and she moved to Houston, TX, where she now teaches high school geometry. Duffey was appointed to head a federally funded drug task force in Arkansas. The day she was appointed, Gary Arnold walked in and told her that she was not to use the task force to investigate any public official.
Duffey was put in charge of half a dozen undercover agents. They couldn’t buy much more than on the street, but when they started connecting public officials to protect drug dealers, Dan Harmon’s name popped up immediately and more frequently. The train deaths became the most famous unsolved mystery in Arkansas history. It received national attention and 1,000 newspapers wrote about it. However, potential witnesses turned up dead.
The drug drops from low-flying planes, which local residents reported hearing many nights, were never investigated by any law enforcement agency in the district. The drugs were being dumped in the same neighborhood where Kevin and Don had been killed along the train tracks.
Prosecutor Jean Duffey was the target of a smear campaign. Basically, he was getting too close to the seventh judicial district. Hence they fired her to cover her ass. In 1991, drug task force undercover agent Scott Loellen resigned, saying, “There’s too much dirt behind the scenes.” He served in Saline, Grant and Hot Springs counties. He later badmouthed the drug task force saying, “That district is mired in a reign of corruption that has significant and powerful connections to political, judicial and law enforcement officials.”
As an undercover officer, Scott gathered evidence of illegal activity, but for some reason the drug task force ignored him. He resigned due to the firing of Jean Duffey, the administrator of the drug task force.
In June 1990, Dan Harmon became the district’s attorney-elect. Harmon’s first press conference and interview was used entirely to discredit Jean Duffey, who was eliminated and forced to flee to Houston, TX as her life was in danger.
Prosecutor Dan Harmon was on the trail the night the boys were murdered. The state police weren’t doing his job either. The mothers of the deceased children were promised convictions in the 1990 federal investigation, when Chuck Banks suddenly shut down the investigation in June 1991.
Other bits of evidence that tie it all together was the fact that in the 1980s a former top CIA official had a second home in Medellin, Colombia.
Some other juicy tidbits of information. Oliver North’s first national program office was at Laguna Airfield, where 1,400 pounds of cocaine was found on the runway.
CIA-owned and operated Southern Air Transport provided the agency with a subcontractor by plausible deniability while they were engaged in the drug and arms trade. The privatization of US intelligence is the way the agency works.
The British version of 60 minutes, The Big Story, showed the trail of drug smuggling and arms trafficking that led to the door of the White House. He exposed clumsy government cover-ups spanning seven investigations and some long, frustrating years. The show revealing the cocaine connection was immediately banned in the US within hours of its release.
During the days of Oliver North’s trial, some 500 documents were shredded in 3 days. All our enemies knew it, but North wanted to hide it and hide it from Congress. Even surfers in Nicaragua named a surf spot after him at the agency base there. As for Mena, Arkansas, it was home to Operation Black Eagle, the most massive covert operation in United States history.
1101 Mena St. is the location for the secret history of our life and times as a drug and arms trafficking nation. It is a small obscure town in western Arkansas with a population of around 5,000 people. With no tower and flight monitoring, Barry Seal found that Mena was the perfect place to fly in and out without being searched. Barry brought as much as $5 billion worth of cocaine into the US during the 1980s. Mena was where he based his cargo airline and parked his one of three C123 planes that made trips to Colombia and Nicaragua.
The mere mention of Mena has sent shivers down the spine of government propaganda officials for years. It’s nice to see Democrats and Republicans working together on something. America’s doping is truly a bipartisan cover-up.
