The following is a fairly standard paranoid right-wing conspiracy rant, but
is notable in that the top secret high-level "source" communicates under the
name of a dog. I guess there's no point worrying about credibility if your
words speak for themselves! I especially like the part about the cover-up
of flared tempers at a Washington party, and the nefarious conclusions drawn

Subject: The Still Before the Storm
Media Bypass - December 1995
By all appearances, things are business as usual in Washington. There
is the traditional budget bickering this time of the year, the
partisan sniping and the backstabbing among Republican presidential
hopefuls angling for pole position next year. Meanwhile, President
Clinton and his ambitious wife manage to hold a comfortable approval
rating in the polls, enjoy favorable press and seemingly have managed
to shrug off persistent "Whitewater" allegations that have dogged his
But don't be lulled by the mainstream media, which has been hard at
work pooh-poohing these corruption charges and doubts about the
official "suicide" of former White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W.
Foster. This is just the eerie still before a storm. A hurricane lurks
just over the horizon. Thunderheads are gathering and looming darker.
Distant lightning can be seen but not yet heard. Straws are starting
to blow in the wind.
This government may be on the threshold of upheaval unprecedented
since the Civil War. That is the cryptic message coming from multiple
well-connected sources close to the intelligence community, who say
big things are quietly afoot that could fundamentally shuffle this
country's political deck. And that may be just fine with Speaker of
the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who sources say is quietly
maneuvering to use this impending turmoil not just to "re-engineer
government" but to purge both political parties and effect what
amounts to a bloodless coupe d'etat.
Swept away will be not only a raft of big-name Democratic senators and
congressmen, but also many prominent, oldline Republicans who have
been feeding at the trough of corruption for years. It won't stop with
politicians, either. Prominent Wall Streeters, bureaucrats, military
officers and a slew of intelligence bigshots are also said to be about
to take a fall. Well over 300 names are said to be involved in the
"Apocalypse soon!" predicts P.P. Willie.
P.P. Willie is actually a dog. But it is also the pen name for a
legendary World War II military intelligence veteran, now living in
St. Petersburg, Fla., who writes for a semi-weekly newsletter called
WASHINGTON REPORT. It is a pithy, irreverent Capitol gossip sheet with
a penchant for pink paper. But it is read with considerable interest
by its 5,000 subscribers - mostly in Washington and overseas - because
Willie is known to be well-connected within the intelligent community.
In the past he has been uncannily accurate about goings-on in the
spook world. And times there now are very troubled.
"Remember reading about TEA POT DOME? How about WATERGATE? Then came
IRAN-CONTRA. Not bad. All the past WASHINGTON political SCANDALS are
ITTY BITTY compared to one that should surface next year, about early
"You don't suppose a few GOOD GUYS in the CIA, FBI, IRS, and NSA (they
are not many, but they exist) are fed up with tucking their tails and
running in the face of WHITE HOUSE pressure? What if they went public
with TRUE DOCUMENTED stories of ESPIONAGE, MURDER, TAX EVASION, DRUG
DEALING, MILLIONS OF DOLLARS STASHED IN OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNTS AND
OTHER BIG TIME HANKY PANKY at the very TIP TOP of the WASHINGTON
manure pile? The MAJOR MEDIA would not want to embarrass the LIBERAL
DARLINGS. But WHAT IF A LONDON newspaper and PINK newsletter broke the
story? Talk RADIO would then spread the word across the nation...The
odds are this scandal will break. We hear it's a DONE DEAL."
Whispers of such a spilling of the beans are being heard from
multiple, separate intelligence sources. Specifically, as reported in
the August and October editions of MEDIA BYPASS, a small, vigilante
team of CIA computer hackers dubbed the Fifth Column has managed to
penetrate Swiss and other foreign banks to quietly withdraw what is
now an astounding $2.5 billion in illicit money from coded accounts
they have identified as belonging to government figures.
Starting in 1991, this five-man Fifth Column team has been using its
own Cray supercomputer to break into foreign bank computers, download
vast libraries of data and trace this money to a wide range of illegal
activities, from kickbacks on drug and arms deals to insider trading
profits, software piracy and the sale of state secrets. Oh yes, don't
forget tax evasion.
The money has been moved to a U.S. Treasury holding account at several
Federal Reserve Banks, escrowed for use by the CIA if and only if the
CIA gets rid of its own bad apples. How could the government hide that
much money, denying under Freedom of Information Act requests that it
even exists? Just ask the National Reconnaissance Office, the
government's spy satellite agency, which recently fessed up to having
$1.7 billion stashed in secret accounts.
More important then the money, however, are the NAMES. Who had these
accounts? Are they still in office? Who has the list and the proof?
Are they using this information to extort political blackmail? Will
the bad guys be able to buy their way out of exposure? One thing is
certain: Whoever controls this phantom roster of corrupt politicians
and money men has this government's private parts in a tightening
vise. One man who may know is Charles S. Hayes, an irascible Kentucky
computer salvage dealer and recently-retired CIA contractor believed
to be part of, or closely involved with, this Fifth Column.
Hayes, corroborating P.P. Willie's report, does declare that all the
names will come out. Eventually. "When we get good and ready," Hayes
says. The Powers That Be can do little to stop him. Any move against
the three remaining Fifth Column compatriots (one has died and another
is disabled) would be certain to unleash the information in a flood.
At least one big name has already been revealed: Vince Foster.
Multiple sources say one of Foster's several Swiss accounts was raided
just before his death of $2.73 million in proceeds from the sale of
sensitive codes and other secrets to Israel's Mossad. Which may
explain why the government is so anxious to portray Foster's death as
a simple suicide. In reality, it could be the loose thread that
unravels a massive tapestry of corruption.
That suicide cover story is rapidly fraying, despite intense efforts
by the White House and Washington establishment to hold it together.
For instance, credible independent handwriting analysts concluded in
late October that Foster's supposed suicide note is a forgery. Indeed,
there are a number of recent tell-tale events that suggest that
something very big is at hand. Among them:
- CIA briefings. Beginning in late October, high-level CIA officials
began sensitive one-on-one briefings with key members of Congress and
those with intelligence committee assignments. No staff members are
allowed. All parties are sworn to secrecy. Less than a dozen lawmakers
are involved. The subject, according to two sources: Espionage
activities of Vincent Foster and his alleged partner - First Lady
Hillary Rodham Clinton - on behalf of Israel's Mossad and perhaps
other foreign governments.
The purpose of these briefings appears to be to prep key leaders for
cataclysmic political events ahead, including the likely indictment
and possible flight to a foreign country of the First Lady and what
would surely be the inevitable removal of Bill Clinton from office.
- Resignations. There has been an unusually large number of veteran
congressmen and senators announcing their resignations, retirements or
switching parties. Among them, Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), former chairman
and now ranking minority member of the powerful Armed Services
Committee. Another is Rep. Norman Minetta (D-Calif.), former chairman
of the pork-laden House Transportation Committee. The official
explanation: It's no fun now that the Republicans control Congress.
But sources claim the real reason is that some of these departees have
been quietly confronted with evidence that they took bribes or payoffs
through Swiss or other offshore bank accounts. Rumor has it that about
30 current members of the House and Senate ahve been identified as
having such foreign slush-fund accounts and that Gingrich is trying to
weed them out before the names become public.
[Since this article was written, three more senators have announced
their retirements. Schroeder of Colorado; Hatfield of Oregon; and
Simpson of Wyoming. This is now the most retirements in Congress since
1896. Jim Norman was on several radio talk shows recently stating that
Schroeder and Hatfield have been presented with evidence of these
secret Swiss accounts. The Simpson retirement was announced after
these radio appearances- krc]
- Curious denials. Multiple good sources have confirmed a report by
veteran Washington correspondent Sarah McClendon that over the Labor
Day weekend, Gingrich attended a "party" at the home of Vice President
Al Gore that included Sen. Bill Bradley, Attorney General Janet Reno
and some other prominent Democrats, after which Gore and Clinton had a
But everyone said to be involved in the meeting claims it never took
place. Is it because Gingrich was there to deliver the bad news: a
mountain of hard evidence of high-level corruption? Gingrich declines
to be interviewed by MEDIA BYPASS.
This Fifth Column team apparently began its work in the late 1980s.
Their primary assignment was to break into foreign intelligence agency
databases by a variety of physical and electronic means. But the main
means of entry was via secret "back doors" programmed into the
modified "PROMIS" tracking software which our government, under the
direction of CIA spymaster William Casey, managed to market all over
the globe, even to our enemies.
This initial phase of the computer spy effort succeeded in downloading
data from more than 50 foreign intelligence services, including the
KGB, the Mossad and most of Europe's spy agencies, according to
various CIA-related sources. Contrary to boastful claims by the FBI,
this is apparently how Russian mole Aldrich Ames was identified as a
double agent more than two years before his dramatic arrest in
February 1994. Is is also how the CIA found out Foster was working for
the Mossad, after learning that someone in our government was
delivering highly sensitive computer codes to the Israelis; Foster had
been a long-time handler of sensitive computer spy deals and covert
money-laundering for the NSA (MEDIA BYPASS, Aug. 1995). Found along
with Foster's name in the Mossad data base was that of Hillary
Clinton, whose name also cropped up as an operative for at least two
other European intelligence services, as yet unidentified.
At the time of his death, MEDIA BYPASS has previously reported, Foster
was under close counter-espionage surveillance involving members of
the CIA, FBI, Secret Service as well as an IRS team. Two good sources
say they have heard that Saudi Arabia also had agents surveilling
Foster. He knew he was being investigated and was apparently under
pressure to cop a plea to prevent the probe from bringing down others
in the White House. The FBI apparently also knew that Foster's life
was in danger: According to two reliable intelligence sources, on the
day of his death, FBI agents used a pair of bomb-sniffing dogs to
inspect Foster's Honda in the White House parking lot - and probably
planted a transponder on the car so they could track the movements.
White House videotapes of the parking lot, which would have shown that
inspection, have allegedly disappeared, according to this intelligence
source. But sources say the surveillance teams have still photos and
videotapes of Foster's activities on the afternoon he died, July 20,
1993, showing him entering an apartment. It is here that Foster was
apparently killed, after a sexual encounter with a brownish-blond
woman photographed leaving the apartment afterwards. Also
photographed, these sources say, was the hit squad, apparently
"assets" contracted by the Mossad but not including any agents of the
Mossad itself. Foster's body was apparently rolled up in a rug and
deposited at Fort Marcy Park - which is still closed to visitors as
the FBI supposedly searches for the bullet that killed him.
Doggedly, the White House and offical Washington, aided by a blinded
mainstream press, continue to claim it was just a suicide, despite the
seriously flawed and widely discredited report to that effect by
original Whitewater Special Counsel Robert Fiske, and a cursory Senate
Sources say it is the continuing coverup, now more than two years
after Foster's death, and the brazen nature of Foster's assassination,
that has soured CIA professionals and has prompted them to consider
going public with what they know. Adding to their frustration was the
resignation of reform-minded CIA director James Woollsey last year and
his replacement by John Deutch.
Deutch's job appears to be to keep a lid on things and to protect the
Clintons and the massive, ongoing illegal drug and arms trade that
provides the agency with billions of dollars in revenue completely out
of view of Congress and government watchdogs.
Deutch's recent attempt to use the Aldrich Ames case as a club to
attack the CIA and its past directors has brought the agency's
simmering revolt to a boil. "Deutch had better watch his altitude and
attitude," said one veteran CIA man. "He'd better get off his soapbox
before he gets indicted himself."
Rumors of CIA involvement in drug trafficking go back to before the
Vietnam war, with heroin trade from Laos' Golden Triangle. But in the
late '70s or early '80s, the agency virtually took over and
nationalized the wholesale importation of cocaine into this country
through obscure airfields like the one at Mena, Ark., on the grounds
that it was the only way to control the drug trade. In other words:
"If you can't lick them, join them." The operation was soon generating
vastly more money than ever imagined - which has come back to line the
pockets of top government officials from the Reagan, Bush and Clinton
administrations. The money-laundering operations have likewise drawn
in major banks and brokerage houses. By some accounts, the revenues
still run upwards of $7 billion a year.
Details of government involvement in this society- wrecking drug trade
are now emerging from various sources. Bits and pieces emerged during
the Iran-Contra and Iraqgate hearings of the 1980s, which produced a
million pages of documents but only a handful of indictments, and
fewer convictions. Perhaps the biggest fish caught was Reagan Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger, charged with lying to Congress. He was
pardoned by President George Bush just as Bush was leaving office in
1992. Curiously, Weinberger's right-hand-man through most of that
period was would-be presidential contender Gen. Colin Powell, who
Weinberger had brought up to be a top military advisor, out of Casey's
intelligence empire where he is said to have served with the NSA and
to have been intimately familiar with the drug and arms flow.
There is also a growing court record of sworn testimony in the
wrongful prosecution case of former CIA contract pilot Terry Reed.
Reed claims in his book, "Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA,"
that Bill Clinton, while governor of Arkansas, was well aware of the
drug trafficking there but played along with the game to earn himself
the status of an "approved" candidate for the presidency. With that
would come plenty of financing.
Another source now openly discussing the massive drug business is
retired Navy Lt. Commander Alexander Martin. Martin was, in effect,
the chief accountant for the Reagan/Bush drug operations run by Marine
Lt. Col. Oliver North, through an obscure arm of the White House
National Security Council called the Natinal Programs Office. In a
radio interview with talk show host Tom Valentine last July, Martin
spoke not only of drugs and money, but death. "Out of roughly 5,000 of
us who were originally involved in Iran-Contra, approximately 400,
since 1986, have committed suicide, died accidently or died of natural
causes. In over half those deaths, official death certificates were
never issued. In 187 circumstances, the bodies were cremated before
the families were notified." Martin then said he was lying low.
Not low enough. In late October, Martin was arrested and jailed
without bond in Broward County, Fla., for supposed violation of his
probation on a 1990 bad-check charge. Such small-time charges are a
common device used to squelch and discredit former players in this
government-run drug and arms racket.
Corruption. Most Americans like to think their government is somehow
immune to the kinds of bribery and abuse of public power rampant in
"Third World" countries. The emerging reality is that the exact
opposite is true. The more wealth and power at stake, the greater the
incentive to subvert and corrupt. Sources say the dark truths
predicted to be unveiled by P.P. Willie will be utterly damning.
