Former Reagan, Bush I, Bush II Staffer Found Murdered

COMMENT: John Wheel­er III, an expert on the U.S. mil­i­tary who served in the admin­is­tra­tions of Rea­gan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush was found mur­dered in a Delaware land­fill.

Who killed him and why remains to be seen.

In this con­text, it is worth not­ing that Wheel­er was very afraid of the pos­si­bil­i­ty of cyber war­fare. Is his death in any way relat­ed to the Wik­iLeaks imbroglio? Might the U.S. be in for an act of cyber-ter­ror­ism? Richard Clarke, among oth­ers, has warned about this.

Might Wheel­er have been mur­dered by a Fifth Col­umn ele­ment in this coun­try, not unlike the theft of sen­si­tive data which got John O’Neill dis­missed as the head of the FBI’s inves­ti­ga­tion into Bin Laden? [1]

“Body of U.S. Mil­i­tary Expert Found in Del. Land­fill” by Ran­dall Chase [AP]; comcast.net News; 1/3/2011. [2]

EXCERPT: The body of a mil­i­tary expert who served in three Repub­li­can admin­is­tra­tions was found dumped in a land­fill and inves­ti­ga­tors said Mon­day they were try­ing to retrace his steps in the days lead­ing up to his death.

John Wheel­er III, 66, who had not been report­ed miss­ing, was sched­uled to be on an Amtrak train from Wash­ing­ton to Wilm­ing­ton on Dec. 28, but author­i­ties say it’s not clear if he ever made that trip. His body was found three days lat­er, on New Year’s Eve, as a garbage truck emp­tied its con­tents at the Cher­ry Island land­fill. His death has been ruled a homi­cide.

Wheel­er served as an Army staff offi­cer in Viet­nam and lat­er worked in the Rea­gan and both Bush admin­is­tra­tions. . . .
