1. Sup­ple­ment­ing the dis­cus­sion and analy­sis from ear­li­er broad­casts on the sub­ject of the ter­ror­ist blitzkrieg of 9/11, this pro­gram derives its title from the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk. It is posit­ed here that, like The Turn­er Diaries (also pub­lished by Nation­al Van­guard Books), the book is actu­al­ly a blue­print for what is going to take place. It is a nov­el about a Nazi takeover of the Unit­ed States in the mid­dle of the 21st cen­tu­ry. The book describes the Third Reich going under­ground, buy­ing into the Amer­i­can media, infil­trat­ing the U.S. mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, and tak­ing over the coun­try.  “It assumes that Hitler’s war­rior elite — the SS — did­n’t give up their strug­gle for a White world when they lost the Sec­ond World War. Instead their sur­vivors went under­ground and adopt­ed some of their tac­tics of their ene­mies: they began build­ing their eco­nom­ic mus­cle and buy­ing into the opin­ion-form­ing media. A cen­tu­ry after the war they are ready to chal­lenge the democ­rats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Amer­i­cans, who have begun to have their fill of gov­ern­ment-enforced mul­ti-cul­tur­al­ism and ‘equal­i­ty.’ ” (From the back cov­er of Ser­pen­t’s Walk by “Ran­dolph D. Calver­hall;” Copy­right 1991 [SC]; Nation­al Van­guard Books; 0–937944-05‑X.) In the book, the Nazi takeover takes place after a bioter­ror attack on the Unit­ed States that kills much of the Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tion. Fol­low­ing the attack, mar­tial law is declared and the Under­ground Reich takes over.

2. This pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of the FBI’s search for a pos­si­ble infil­tra­tor in the U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram.  (“FBI Expands Anthrax Probe to Fed­er­al Labs” by William J. Broad and Judith Miller [New York Times]; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 12/2/2001; p. A14.)

3. Some experts believe such an infil­tra­tor is the most like­ly cul­prit in the bio­log­i­cal war­fare attacks. (Idem.)

4. Many jour­nal­is­tic sources have not­ed that the 9/11 attacks have result­ed in sweep­ing changes in law and civ­il lib­er­ties statutes.  One of the most deter­mined crit­ics of Attor­ney Gen­er­al John Ashcroft’s response to the attacks has been Sen­a­tor Patrick Leahy.  (“Pow­er Strug­gle over Civ­il Lib­er­ties” by Robin Ton­er [New York Times]; San Jose Mer­cury News; 12/2/2001; p. 6A.)  It should be not­ed in that con­text that Leahy has been the recip­i­ent of one of the anthrax-laced let­ters, appar­ent­ly con­tain­ing the same strain and qual­i­ty as the weapons-grade anthrax sent to Sen­a­tor Tom Daschle.

5. Next, the pro­gram high­lights a CDC plan to respond to a bioter­ror attack.  (“Health Bill Jeo­pradizes Civ­il Rights” by Bernadette Tansey; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 11/25/2001; pp. A1-A22.)

6. Crit­ics have voiced great con­cern over the plan’s dis­re­gard for civ­il lib­er­ties.  (Idem.)  The plan might be viewed as a plan for “bio-mar­tial law.”

7. Next, the pro­gram excerpts FTR#271.  Attor­ney Gen­er­al Ashcroft him­self has con­nec­tions to domes­tic extrem­ist and racist groups.  The broad­cast deals with Ashcroft’s liaisons with ele­ments of the neo-Con­fed­er­ate move­ment, as well as his sup­port for a white suprema­cist accused of plot­ting to mur­der an FBI agent and a fed­er­al wit­ness. Ashcroft has expressed sup­port for Con­fed­er­ate gen­er­als Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jack­son and Con­fed­er­ate pres­i­dent Jef­fer­son Davis. (“Unseem­ly Alliances” by Bob Her­bert; New York Times; 1/18/2001; p. A31.) The peri­od­i­cal in which he expressed this sup­port (South­ern Quar­ter­ly Par­ti­san Review) has also endorsed white suprema­cist David Duke. (For more infor­ma­tion about Duke and his appar­ent con­nec­tions to the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, see also: RFA#13, Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M‑52 and FTR-97.)

8. Ashcroft has been vocal in sup­port of an ultra-right­ist accused of plot­ting to mur­der an FBI agent and a fed­er­al wit­ness. (“Why Did Ashcroft Try to Help Dr. Sell?” by Joe Cona­son; New York Observ­er; 1/18/2001; p. 5.)

9. Con­vict­ed of defraud­ing Med­ic­aid, Dr. Charles T. Sell alleged­ly plot­ted to mur­der the FBI agent who arrest­ed him and a fed­er­al wit­ness. (Idem.)

10. Sell counts both Ashcroft, and the white-suprema­cist Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens’ Coun­cil among his sup­port­ers. (Idem.) The lat­ter is an overt­ly racist and pro-fas­cist group that regards African-Amer­i­cans to be infe­ri­or, glo­ri­fies the Con­fed­er­ate States of the Amer­i­can Civ­il War. The CCC inter­faces with a num­ber of fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions, includ­ing the Nation­al Alliance.

11. The CCC has also enjoyed the sup­port of promi­nent repub­li­cans, such as Sen­ate Major­i­ty Leader Trent Lott. (Idem.)

12. High­light­ing white suprema­cist activ­i­ties inside the med­ical com­mu­ni­ty, the pro­gram sets forth the back­ground and activ­i­ties of Steven Col­bern, an asso­ciate of Tim­o­thy McVeigh and a blood and DNA spe­cial­ist.  (Blood Oath: The Con­spir­a­cy to Mur­der Nicole Brown Simp­son; by Steven Worth and Carl Jaspers; copy­right 1996 [SC]; Rain­bow Books; ISBN 1–56825-058–4; pp. 215–216.)

13. The broad­cast con­cludes with dis­cus­sion of the dis­ap­pear­ance of a spe­cial­ist in dead­ly virus­es, such as Ebo­la.  (“Har­vard Pro­fes­sor’s Dis­ap­pear­ance Baf­fles” by Fox But­ter­field; New York Times; 11/27/2001; p. A10.)  The pro­fes­sor was based in the Boston area, the geo­graph­i­cal epi­cen­ter of the Bin Laden fam­i­ly in the Unit­ed States.  The Bin Ladens have invest­ed in a bio-tech­nol­o­gy firm in Cam­bridge.
