[Here's something interesting from the "Something in the water department." When discussing paranoid conspiracy beliefs one of the most common themes is the claim by the believer that he or she has made heretofor "startling discoveries" of which only he or she knows anything about. The individual then proceeds to try to convince others using every trick in the book. The lack of ability to convince others and the lack of credibility prompts futher "startling discoveries" which attempt to rectify the lack of credibility resulting in a spiral of decline which results in an increasingly paranoid world belief. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank] -=- CLINTON.BD: Thompson text begins unedited -=- Coincidence or the Kiss of Death? Copyright (c) 1993 by Linda Thompson, All Rights Reserved In investigating events surrounding the massacre at Waco, I have made some rather startling discoveries. For instance, I discovered that three of the four ATF agents killed during the initial seige at Waco had been Bill Clin- ton's bodyguards during his presidential campaign. Film footage from the initial seige (which can be seen in the video tape, "Waco, the Big Lie"), shows an ATF agent throwing a grenade and shooting a machine gun into the room where three other ATF agents have just entered a window. In other words, this footage appears to show that these agents were assassinated. In the March 3, 1993, Dallas Moming News, all three of the agents who went into the window on the roof of the Branch Davidian house at Mt. Carmel were reported by the ATF to have been killed inside. This certainly seemed curious, as did the connections to Waco of numerous highly placed government officials. Curiouser and curiouser. A former CIA agent and a former FBi agent both told me to begin checking into the body count around Hillary and Bill Clinton, during Clinton's rise to governor of Arkansas and since he has become President. With just a little preliminary research of the period just prior to the election through the present, I found 21 people who Clinton knew personally, many of whom he knew intimately, and several who had been his escorts or bodyguards, all of whom had died under mysterious circumstances or been killed in "accidental" airplane or helicopter crashes: CLINTON BODY COUNT (Not including 96 Branch Davidians murdered in Waco, Texas, Feb. 28, 1993 through April 19, 1993.) PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHERE THE MONEY COMES FROM: <<+2>> July 30, 1992, C. Victor Raiser II, 52, the national finance co- chairman of the Clinton for President campaign, and his son, R. Montgomery Raiser, 22, were among five (5) people killed July 30 in a crash of a private plane near Dillingham, Alaska. Vincent Raiser was a past national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and he served on the boards of the Democratic Business Council and the Center for National Policy and the board of advisers of the Democratic Leadership Council. A native of Indianap- olis, he graduated from Princeton University and received a law degree from the University of Virginia. He worked in Buffalo before moving to Washington in 1979. He was a special- ist in communications and corporate law and consultant to the law firm of Jones Day Reavis & Pogue until l991. He was chairman of the American Mobile Satellite Corp., a telecommunications development company in Washington, and vice-chairman of Mobile Telecommunication technologies Corp. of Jackson, Miss. , a paging and voice messaging company. It's main subsidiary in Washington is SkyTel Corp, a paging company. {Reported in obituaries, "D.C. Lawyer C.V. Raiser II and Son Die" The Washington Post, August 01, 1992, FINAL edition, Section METRO, p. b07} <<+1>> July 21, 1993 (UPI): Vincent Foster, A top legal aide to President Clinton was announced to have "committed suicide in a park outside Washington," by the White House. In a statement, White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers said Vince Foster Jr., 48, the White House deputy counsel, was found dead in a suburban Virginia park, apparently killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Foster, originally from Hope, Ark., like Clinton, had come to Washington from the law firm of Hillary Rodham Clinton. No note was found near the body, which was discovered by local authorities in Fort Marcy Park, near Fairfax, Va., officials said, nor was any possible reason Foster might have taken his life put forward. Foster most recently was involved in the administration's so-called Travelgate scandal, involving the abrupt firing of seven longtime employees from the White House travel office and the hiring of a distant cousin of Clinton's. An internal investigation by White House chief of staff Thomas Mclarty docum- ented Foster's involvement in the process, which included contacts with the first lady on the subject of possible crime and wrongdoing. But Foster was not among the four White House staffers reprimanded for their roles in the dismissals. Foster was among those responsible for initiating a private audit, then an FBI investigation of the matter. [Also reported in "Park Police To Conduct Inquiry 'Routine' Probe Set On Foster's Death," The Washington Post, July 27, 1993, FINAL Edition By: Michael Isikoff, Washington Post Staff Writer, Section: A SECTION, p. aO8.] Foster was Purportedly speaking with an Editor at a Washington newspaper prior to his death. He was found shot in the back of the head with a 1913 Colt .38 revolver which he did not own. The revolver had no serial number, even though all Colt revolvers since the late 1800's have had serial numbers except a special series issued to the CIA. Foster advised the Clinton's on their finances. There are presently at least two bank scandals that are emerging from Little Rock Arkansas, involving banks in which the Clintons have an interest. <<+1>> June 22, 1993, the partially decomposed body of Paul Wilcher, a 49 year old investigative lawyer was found on a toilet in his Capitol Hill apartment in Washington, D.C. At the time of his death, he was investigating the "October Surprise" conspiracy during the 1980 federal election campaign. He had been interviewing an inmate who claimed to have piloted George Bush to Paris so he could secretly seek to delay the release of 52 American hostages in Iran. Not mentioned in this article are other facts. Prior to his death, Wilcher had recently spoken with John Parsons, a producer of syndicated television programs, about making a documentary of his findings. He had also spoken with John Vassillos, the attorney for CIA operative Mike Riconosciuto. Riconosciuto claims he was involved in a web of underworld, CIA, and Depart- ment of Justice dealings, revealed in allegations brought by a computer company called Inslaw Inc., that the Justice Department had stolen its software product, "Promis, " then driven the firm into bankruptcy and that the program had been sold to countries all over the world by persons afilliat- ed with then attorney-general Ed Meese. Riconosciuto says that the program was provided to Wackenhut Corp. of Coral Gables, FL, and that Wackenhut hired 50 of the world's top programmers to modify the code of the software at the Southern California Cabazon Indian reservation. Riconosciuto also has detailed his involvement in gun running and drug dealing conducted out of Mena, Arkansas. Danny Caselero, 44, a reporter who was investigating the Inslaw scandal and had spoken with Riconosciuto, was found murdered in a hotel bathtub in Washington, D.C. in 1931, the day after telling friends and family that he was about to receive material that would provide him with documentation linking Inslaw to October Surprise and the Iran-Contra scandals. Paul Wilcher was also investigating these same links, as well as their connection to the deaths of the ATF agents and Branch Davidians at Mt. Carmel at the time of his own death. THE USS DEATHSHIP (A/K/A USS ROOSEVELT): Both the Carrier Roosevelt and the 1st Armored Division figures prominently in a "Nato Peacekeeping Plan" for Serbia/Bosnia. Both also figure prominently in three separate crashes, killing more than a dozen people associated with Clinton [Reported in "All Plans Include Key Navy Role Virginian-Pilot" (Norfolk , VA) (VP) - Saturday, May 9, 1993, By: Phyllis W. Jordan, Edition: FINAL Section: FRONT Page: A8.] And interestingly, the commanders of both the Roosevelt and the 1st Armored Division either died or were replaced in late February or early March, 1993, ar did personnel involved in escorting or guarding Clinton on the Carrier Roosevelt: <<+4>> February 23, 1993: Maj. Gen. Jarrett J. Robemon, 52, the deputy comm- anding general of V Corps, died when an Army UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter crashed as it attempted to land at Wiesbaden air base February 23, 1993. V Corps is an armored force headquartered in nearby Frankfurt, and is the U.S. Army's chief combat component in Europe which currently has troops in Somalia and a medical unit in Croatia. Also killed were Col. William J. Densbeger, 47, the corps' chief of operations and plans; Col. Robert J. Kelly, 49, its chief of intelligence; and Spec. Gary L. Rhodes, 23, the helicopter crew chief. The officers were returning from a meeting at the U.S. European Command headquarters in Stuttgart when their Blackhawk fell suddenly to the ground not far from the Wiesbaden air base's control tower and burst into flames. {Reported in "U.S. General, Aides Die in Helicopter Crash in Germany," The Washington Post, February 25, 1993, FINAL Edition, By: Special to The Washing ton Post, Section: A SECTION, p.a14} And we now have the entire U.S. 1st Armored Division, in this same European Command, under the direct control of a German general. On March 2, 1993, Rear Adm. L.E. Allen Jr. relieved Rear Adm. Frederick L. Lewis as commanding officer of Carrier Group 4 and Commander Carrier Striking Force on March 2, 1993, in Norfolk, Va. (which includes the USS Roosevelt). Allen was formerly stationed in Washington, D.C., where he served as deputy director for operations on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Lewis was reassigned to a land job as commander of Naval Doctrine Command, which later became operational on March 12. {Reported in "COMMAND CHANGES." VIRGINIAN- PILOT (Norfolk, VA) (VP) - Tuesday, March 2, 1993, Edition: FINAL Section: LOCAL Page: D4.} <<5>> March 25, 1993 : Five Navy aviators were lost at sea at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 25, 1993, when their E-2C Hawkeye early warning plane crashed into the sea while attempting to return to the aircraft Roosevelt, Navy officials said yesterday. Hours earlier, the Roosevelt had arrived in the Ionian Sea on a six-month European deployment. The carrier's air wing had just completed its first operational mission, flying night combat air patrol off the Yugoslav coast, while Germany-based U.S. cargo planes dropped food to besieged muslims in Bosnia. [Reported in "Five Navy Fliers Lost at Sea, " The Washington Post, March 27, 1993, Final Edition, By: Barton Gellman, Washington Post Staff Writer, Section: A, p. A24.] These five men had been escorts for President Clinton when he visited the Carrier Roosevelt. <<+4>> May 19, 1993: On May 21, 1993, the Marine Corps grounded its entire presidential fleet of nine VH-60N helicopters pending the outcome of the inve- stigation of a crash involving one of the presidential fleet helicopters, a VH -60N Blackhawk helicopter that went down in a heavily wooded area near the Potomac River about 31 miles southeast of Washington on May 19, 1993. Killed in the crash were Maj. William S. Barkley, Jr., Staff Sgt. Brian D. Haney, and Sgt. Timothy D. Sabel, and Capt. Scott J. Reynolds. Maj. Barkley, 27, of Hickory, N.C. became a naval aviator in 1977 and was assigned to the presidential squadron in January 1990. He was one of only eight pilots in the squadron authorized to fly the President, according to Betty Jo Bragg, longtime secretary to Barkley's father. Sgt.. Timothy D. Sabel, 27, of Ripon, Wis., was "responsible for the maintenance of the airplane. He goes on all flights, "said Master Sgt. Paul Earle, a Marine spokesman at Quantico, Virginia (which is also FBI head- quarters). Staff Sgt. Brian D. Haney, 32, of North Ridgeville, Ohio, was the quality assurance representative on the helicopter. Carolyn Haney, his mother, said her son had flown with President George Bush to Europe and in the presid- ential campaign "all over the United States." Capt. Scott J. Reynolds, 33, of Wausau, Wis., joined the Marines in 1984, was designated a naval aviator in 1987 and was a veteran of the Persian Gulf War Clinton had flown once on that particular craft, according to White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers. That flight took the president to the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt off the Virginia coast in March, she said. {Reported in "Marines identify crash victims," Washington Times, Saturday, May 22, 1993, Edition: Final Section: METROPOLITAN LOCAL ROUNDUP MARYLAND, page A11; "Charles County helicopter crash kills 4 Marines, " Thursday, May 20, 1993, By: Jim Keary, Washington Times, Edition: Final Section: Notice, above, that the President's escorts during Clinton's one visit to the Carrier Roosevelt on March 12, 1993, were all later killed in a plane crash, too. More Bodyguards: <<+4>> Februrary 28, 1993. In the initial assault on Mt. Carmel in Waco, Texas, four agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were killed. Those killed in the attack were : Steve Willis, 32, of Houston; Robert J. Williams, 26, Little Rock, Ark.; Conway LeBleu, 30, New Orleans; and Todd McKeehan, 28, New Orleans. {Reported in "UPDATE: AT LEAST FIVE DEAD, l5 INJURED IN TWO SHOOTOUTS AT TEXAS CULT COMPOUND WACO,TEXAS." MARCH 1,1993, UPI} President Clinton himself revealed that these men had been his bodyguards in a speech on March 18, 1993, before employees of the Treasury Department: "My prayers and I'm sure yours are still with the families of all four of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents who were killed in Waco -- Todd McKeehan and Conway Lebleu of New Orleans, Steve Willis of Houston, and Robert Williams from my hometown of Little Rock. Three of those four were assigned to my security during the course of the primary or general election." {Remarks by the President to employees of the Treasury Department, March 18, 1993, 11:48 A.M. EST} 21 - Total confirmed deaths of persons connected to Clinton in the past year. (I have not included people who were also killed in the crashes with whom there is no confirmed Link at this time, such as the three persons who were killed in the same crash as Vincent Raiser and his son). All of these people died of unnatural causes. Four were shot, 17 were killed in crashes of helic- opters or airplanes. The statistical probabilities of Clinton knowing 21 people, all of whom died either in accidents or under mysterious circumstances in less than a year's time, is virtually zero. And Where Do These Guys Fit In: <<+3>> Did these people have any connection to the flame-throwing tank that was brought in from Ft. Hood, Texas and used to set the fire at Mt. Carmel, in Waco, Texas on April 19, 1993? July 21, 1993, (AP): Three Texas National Guardsmen, reportedly mistaken for pop-up targets, were shot to death by fellow soldiers Wednesday during a night vision training exercise. "They were hit by fire from other soldiers," said Lt. Col. Ed Komandoshy, a spokesman at Guard headquarters in Austin. Komandoshy said the victims were members of the 3rd Battalion, l41st Infantry of the Texas National Guard in McAllen, had experience in the training exercise and "had been in the Guard for some time." Killed were Spc. Daniel F. Benitez, 27, of Donna; Spc. Jose C. Ramos Jr., 42, of Weslaco; and Sgt. Raul Cardenas, 27, of Weslaco were pronounced dead at Darnall Army Community Hospital in Killeen. <<+1>> Could John A. Wilson have known too much about insider politics? John A. Wilson, for 16 years a City Councilman in Washington, D.C., was found dead from a supposed suicide. His wife had already left for work and he was found in his underwear, hanging in his basement, later in the moming as if he had awakened, gone to the basement and hung himself. No suicide note was found. What is emerging from the research I have conducted is a clear picture that those who know too much or those who interfere with the one world government plan, die. Did any of these people know too much? And what is it that they know or saw? As the information develops, I will provide updates. Stay tuned. [Linda Thompson is an attorney in Indianapolis, Indiana.
