Waco + 25 Years

On February 28, 1993 seventy-six ATF agents, accompanied by three helicopters, attempted to conduct a surprise raid on the Branch Davidian’s home and church. We now approach the 25th anniversary of that raid.

A documentary film, Waco: The Rules of Engagement, includes infrared video taken by a surveillance helicopter which clearly shows sniper fire, as well as tanks firing incendiary devices into the building on “Day 51” of the Waco siege, April 19, 1993. [1]

How did the documentary film manage to obtain the secret infrared video footage? It is widely believed to have been leaked by William Colby, former director of the CIA. [1]

William Colby had revealed matters deep and dangerous, and he paid a price: On April 27, 1996, Colby set out from his weekend home in Rock Point, Maryland on a solo canoe trip. His canoe was found the following day on a sandbar in the Wicomico River, a tributary of the Potomac, approximately a quarter mile from his home. On May 6, Colby’s body was found in a marshy riverbank lying facedown not far from where his canoe was found. [2]

Carlos Ghigliotti also delved into matters deep and dangerous. He too paid a price. The police discovered his corpse in an advanced state of decomposition at the office where he worked alone–Infrared Technologies Corp. His specialty was analyzing videotapes made during the infamous 1993 Waco siege. [3]

The Washington Post ironically titled its report on Ghigliotti as “The Man Who Knew Too Much.” This is ironic because an earlier book about Richard Case Nagell, first published years before the Post article, was also titled The Man Who Knew Too Much. Richard Case Nagell did not pay the ultimate price suffered by Colby and Ghigliotti, but author Dick Russell, in the chapter of his book titled “The Railroading of Richard Case Nagell,” describes the legal hell he endured.

In his recent book, Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination, Richard Belzer’s findings are absolutely staggering; some cases were clearly linked to a “clean-up operation” after the murder of President Kennedy, while others were the result of “other forces”.

Matters Deep and Dangerous

“We unfold a dangerous chronicle,” wrote Francis Bacon in a coded message, “and by starts unclasp a secret book to your quick conceiving, and read you matter deep and dangerous.” [1]

This warning message from Francis Bacon is from his letter to the decipherer, found by means of a “Bi-literal Cipher,” which contains instructions dealing with other codes within the so-called “Shakespeare” plays. [1]

Corroboration on the controversial “Shakespeare” was provided in 2004 by Peter Dawkins, in his book, The Shakespeare Enigma. Bacon had gathered around himself a team of “good pens,” including Edward de Vere, Ben Jonson, Mary Sidney, Christopher Marlowe and others. It was these persons, with Bacon as their leader, and NOT the “Spear-Shaker,” who wrote the immortal plays. [2]

We unfold matters deep and dangerous. Alleged shooter in the Parkland Valentine’s Day Massacre Nikolas Cruz “was a member of the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program, and was also part of a four-person JROTC marksmanship team at the school…” [3]

It is a dangerous time to ask questions. To do so is perilous. Stoneman Douglas High School student Connor Dietrich said live on CNN, “I thought it was a drill because they told us police officers would fire blanks, like scare us, so we could, you know, train for this.” [4]

Why did the school resource officer, Deputy Scot Peterson, remain outside the high school during the shooting? A possible answer is that he had been previously informed it would be “just a drill.”

Another student said that there were “three shooters.” [4]

How did Army Junior Reserve cadet Nikolas Cruz escape the scene of carnage? He was later found taking a stroll in Parkland, Florida, similar to how Lee Harvey Oswald had taken a stroll into The Texas Theater on November 22, 1963.

Dangerous Questions

Around when Dick Russell began researching his book, The Man Who Knew Too Much, in September 1975, he received an anonymous letter: “… You are now part of the great game of solving the JFK assassination riddle. The danger to those involved is immense, tantamount to playing Russian Roulette…” [1]

Professor James Tracy asked questions about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting of December 14, 2012 and paid a price: He was hounded by the State/Corporate media and eventually lost his job.

As Senator Chuck Schumer warned: “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

There are Dangerous Questions. If you raise them about the Parkland Valentine’s Day Massacre of February 14, 2018, you risk being misunderstood at the least.

In the letter received by Dick Russell in 1975 there was an enclosure. The stationery on which it was written bore the letterhead, “King Edward Sheraton Hotel, Toronto, Canada.” The enclosure had been penned ten years earlier, in 1965. Canadian computers analyzing the assassination of John F. Kennedy had developed leads to one Adolph Tscheppe-Weidenbach, born in 1892 in Heidelberg, Germany. Computer analysis showed him to have been the mastermind. [1]

Sitting above Adolph Tscheppe-Weidenbach in the power structure, the hit on JFK had been approved by “the man who could do no wrong in American history.” [1]

Russell discovered that Adolph Tscheppe-Weidenbach had changed his name shortly before he’d arrived in the United States, just before the First World War. His chosen American name was Charles Willoughby. [1]

Charles Willoughby was a major general in the U.S. Army, serving as General Douglas MacArthur’s chief of intelligence during most of World War II and the Korean War. [2]

Author J.W. Lateer used statistical factor analysis with a database containing 1500 JFK-connected names and came up with “three barons” as assassination kingpins. One of these three barons was Adolph Tscheppe-Weidenbach, a.k.a. General Charles Willoughby. [3]

Lame Stories From Parkland

Every big tragedy deserves a good conspiracy tale. In the Parkland Valentine’s Day Massacre of February 14, 2018, we have aspects of the Hindu deity: There are SHIVA, the destroyer and BRAHMA, the creator.

Shiva the destroyer is represented by alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz. Brahma the creator is represented by the ensuing folklore which follows such horrifying events.

But the folklore coming out of the Parkland incident is mostly pretty lame. Trying not to take sides, I merely point out that the Democrats are not in touch with Brahma in their Parkland narratives. That is to say, they keep telling the same story about evil guns. It is like watching the X-Files over and over. At first it is interesting. But have you ever tried watching the same X-Files over and over? I have, and let me tell you even the X-Files can get boring after awhile.

On the other side we have the Republicans, somewhat more inventive but still, in the Parkland folklore, caught in a cul-de-sac: “Crisis actors” is the re-run story emerging. An aide to a Florida lawmaker was fired after falsely suggesting that student survivors of the mass shooting in Parkland were “actors”. [1] That is not Brahma – not creative – since it only repeats folklore first created by Professor James Tracy after the Newtown/Sandy Hook incident.

My point is that victims of the Parkland incident deserve more than re-runs. They deserve Brahma – something new and creative – to counter-balance the forces of Shiva. Sorry to toot my own horn here, but I at least have come up with something different: that the FBI has been experiencing an existential crisis due to its not having a charter. Maybe its not a great story, but at least it’s not a re-run. (Background: Existential Crisis at FBI, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, February 20, 2018.)

Existential Crisis at FBI

A sense of ennui pervades the halls of the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, DC. There, in their cubicles, listless agents go through the motions of answering telephone calls.

In one such cubicle, the phone rings. It is September of 2017. The FBI agent, let us call him Squibb, half-heartedly lifts the phone and wearily says, “FBI. How may I help you?”

“Hello, FBI?” says the caller. “This is Ben Bennight. I am a ‘Vlogger’, a Video Logger on YouTube.”

“Fascinating,” Agent Squibb groans to himself.

“Anyway,” continues Bennight, “I wanted to report something which might be important. Someone called Nikolas Cruz left a comment on my video. He commented, ‘I’m going to be a professional school shooter.'”

Agent Squibb sighed. Why did he exist? Ever since he had realized that the FBI has no charter, troubling thoughts such as “What is my legal basis for being?” kept pouring through his mind.

But Squibb went through the motions and filed a report. The next day, two local FBI agents knocked on Bennight’s door. They were very professional and conducted the requisite interview. But in their heart of hearts lingered doubts about their raison d’être.

Still, lethargic FBI agents made superficial attempts to figure out, “Who was this Nikolas Cruz?” Then it came time to punch the clock and go home. In the end, the FBI decided it was unable to identify Cruz.

The Man Who Knew Too Much

The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 created the Assassination Records Review Board as an independent agency to re-examine for release the assassination-related records that federal agencies still regarded as too sensitive to open to the public. The Board finished its work on September 30, 1998, issued a final report, and transferred all of its records to the National Archives and Records Administration. [1]

“All of the records described are open for viewing and reproduction, but ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON LINE,” advises the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB). “To view the records at the National Archives at College Park, Maryland, or to order copies of the files, please contact the Special Access and FOIA Staff at the National Archives at College Park, Room 5500, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, call at (301) 837-3190, or e-mail: specialaccess_foia@nara.gov.” [1]

ARRB later adds, “The Review Board actively encouraged private citizens and organizations who possessed assassination records to donate them to the JFK Collection… The Review Board also received countless essays, interview transcripts and books… These, too, will become part of the JFK Collection. Below is an overview of materials donated by private citizens.” [2]

Then later comes item 14: Richard Case Nagell. [2]

“In his book The Man Who Knew Too Much, author Dick Russell wrote about Richard Case Nagell, a former Army Counterintelligence Officer who told Russell he: (1) had conducted surveillance on Lee Harvey Oswald for both the CIA and the KGB…” [2]

Nagell (pronounced nah-GALL) was a double agent, or even a triple agent!? As explained in Russell’s book, the CIA “dangled” Nagell to the KGB. Lee Harvey Oswald also might have been dangled: he seemed like a defector on the surface, but really it was a Spy vs. Spy trick to insert a “mole” into the KGB.

Nagell, continues ARRB, “(2) had been recruited by a KGB agent (masquerading as a CIA operative) to persuade Oswald not to participate in a plot against President Kennedy…” [2]

Whew! So Nagell thought his secret contact was a CIA controller, but really the “CIA controller” was a KGB spy!

Russell does not say that Oswald shot JFK, but that Oswald was part of the plot yet did not know that his important role was to be the fall guy, scapegoat, or “patsy.” [3]

In its 6th point, ARRB reports that Nagell “had sent a letter, via registered mail, to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover in September 1963, warning of a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy…” [2]

FBI received a prior warning!? Where have we heard this lately? I know, it was involving the PARKLAND Valentine’s Day Massacre of February 14, 2018.

FBI Has No Charter

More than ten years ago, my late friend and mentor Sherman H. Skolnick wrote that “unlike the American CIA set up by a charter, the FBI HAS NO STATUTORY BASIS TO EXIST. It was simply created out of the mists and vapors swirling around the Justice Department, considered by some, a nest of vipers.” [1]

I don’t think the CIA has much of a legislative charter, per se. Although it came into being due to the National Security Act of 1947, its duties were supposed to be limited. There was no specific provision for covert political operations spelled out in the 1947 Act. And certainly the CIA was never envisioned as operating domestically. And yet, in 1963, the CIA’s “domestic division” had the audacity to appear. [2] [3]

So not just the FBI was created out of the mists and vapors.

For awhile many years ago Mr. Skolnick emphasized in several reports that the FBI has no charter. Now, subsequent to the Valentine’s Day Parkland Shootings, with the FBI being criticized for ignoring warnings about alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz, Skolnick’s reports about the FBI not even having a legal charter to exist came to mind. Could this be true, that the FBI has no charter? I decided to look into it.

Confirming Skolnick’s reports is an article from Newsweek dated May 17, 2017: “The FBI has no legislative charter setting out its mission or responsibilities.” [4]

For decades, during the reign of J. Edgar Hoover, the original “FBI” Director, the prowling organization had no charter! This embarrassment was bandaged by President Jimmy Carter in 1979. On July 31st of that year, Carter transmitted to the U.S. Congress “the FBI Charter Act of 1979, which will provide the first comprehensive Charter for the functioning of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” It was a “legislative proposal” from Carter. [5]

However Carter’s legislative proposal apparently was not enacted, since Newsweek reported in 2017 that the FBI has no legislative charter. [4]
