NOTES OF MEETINGS/CONVERSATIONS ON INSLAW & FOSTERGATE (10/21/95)
By "Mr. Mercedes" (Pseudonym)
[CN: The rest of this essay, as typed by CN, omits portions of
the original which seemed redundant. Also, the claims made by
"Mr. Mercedes" are his own; much of what he says is beyond my own
knowledge. Be assured, however, that I have spoken with "Mr.
Mercedes" many times and that he is not a dilettante in these
In addition to acting as an NSA agent, James Norman stated that
Vince Foster was also selling NSA and other high-level U.S.
government and military secrets to Israel's Mossad with the
assistance of another former Rose Law Firm partner, Hillary
Clinton (she was the attorney of record for none other than
Systematics once in 1978 and later in (1981 or 82?))
James Norman stated that Dee Dee Myers, former White House Press
Secretary, reportedly set up Foster by getting him out of the
White House where he was killed in a not very professional and
hurriedly arranged mafia-style hit, made to look like a suicide.
Her recent drunk driving arrest was a cover for an intense CIA
interrogation about her involvement in Foster's death.
In a completely different, but interrelated vein of the
Inslaw/PROMIS situation, CNN broadcast an excerpt of a
one-and-a-half hour taped interview on 12/12/91 with Canadian
John Belton who described how former California Gov. Reagan's
Secretary of Health, Financial News Network founder/former owner
and secret intelligence operative, Earl W. Brian, was involved in
funding October Surprise. Additionally, Belton told CNN just how
Earl Brian defrauded Nesbitt Thompson, the Canadian investment
company where Belton worked, of $50 million through stock
manipulation of Brian's public companies. Despite the
significance of Belton's CNN interview, which aired worldwide and
even with front page coverage in Canadian newspapers, there's
been no coverage in the U.S.
James Norman stated that Caspar Weinberger, Forbes' Chairman
Emeritus, has also been implicated [by Chuck Hayes checking] out
encrypted code number found by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Barry
Seal's car trunk after he was murdered by Colombian hitmen when
DOJ/DEA hung him out to dry. Evans-Pritchard gave Norman the
number, who in turn had Hayes run it and see who and what he
could come up with. Hayes found that the number turned out to be
a secret Swiss bank account for Caspar Weinberger through which
he pulled out several million dollars.
Some sources even believe it was possible that the whole
NSA/Foster operation was a policy decision under Reagan/Bush to
pay back Israel for their help with Iraq by providing them with
our nuclear missile defense system. It is unknown if Caspar
Weinberger had applied any pressure to kill Norman's story at
Forbes, but he certainly feels that his continuing investigation
into Weinberger's involvement in the "Fostergate" story was the
real reason for his being fired.
Other journalists who were fired for writing or attempting to
write stories on Vince Foster/Inslaw include Christopher Ruddy
formerly at New York Post (1/27/94 article, "Doubts Raised Over
Foster's Suicide," and 2/10/94 article, "Fumbling Feds Change
Story on Foster's 'Suicide'" and Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
9/20/95 "Police Failed to Find Keys to Foster's Car at Park" and
9/26/95 "Clinton Security Chief's Murder Still Unsolved") and
Tony Kimery (Media Bypass 9/95, "Penetration: Fostergate II"
follow-up to Norman's 8/95 article and upcoming 10/2/95 Insight
Magazine article on the NSA's Fin-CEN, Financial Crimes
Enforcement Network) at a Washington, D.C. wire service.
Since Presidential hopeful Bob Dole is reported to have Jackson
Stephens as his Campaign Finance Chairman, even if he doesn't
have a secret Swiss bank account like many of his Congressional
colleagues, the damage to his campaign could be terminal if and
when this scandal breaks and he is linked with one of the central
figures with [Stephens'] Systematics company.
Quite possibly, since many are involved in both parties and
independent counsel Ken Starr appears to have been involved in
some way, early on in the Inslaw matter, recusing himself as
Solicitor General, nothing about this Vince Foster scandal may
ever come out in either the House or Senate Whitewater hearings
or Starr's investigation and final report if they all can help
keep it buried with Vince Foster, especially if there is no
serious media scrutiny and reporting.
If nothing is done we can almost certainly expect a huge
"blowback" as described by Robert Friedman (New Yorker Magazine
3/17/95, "The CIA's Jihad"), a term which describes how the CIA's
covert ops many times wind up causing more problems than their
ops are worth. One of these CIA "blowbacks" presumably resulted
in the bombing of the World Trade Center after the CIA trained,
armed, and financed Arab terrorists and Afghan rebels to fight
our former enemy, the Russian occupying army.
Hopefully though, sooner or later serious journalists will decide
to truly investigate this story; only then will "Fostergate" and
Inslaw be prime time news, despite all the efforts of government
officials, business leaders, and major media, to avoid, suppress
and/or write dis- or misinformation on this blockbuster story.
Who knows, maybe Safire had a point when he wrote, "Sometimes
conspiracy theories uncover conspiracy." But poet Robert Frost
really said it best: "...But I have PROMISes to keep, and miles
to go before I sleep."
