FTR #106 Mike Ruppert on the Subject of The Intelligence Community and Drugs

Lis­ten: Side 1 | Side 2

For­mer LAPD nar­cotics detec­tive Mike Rup­pert has devot­ed his life to expos­ing and coun­ter­act­ing those ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty that have been involved in the drug trade. This pro­gram access­es infor­ma­tion from his newslet­ter From The Wilder­ness and fea­tures a short inter­view with Mike about a recent­ly filed law­suit (recent as of Sep­tem­ber of 1998.) After a dis­cus­sion of some of Mike’s for­mer LAPD col­leagues who fig­ured in the “inves­ti­ga­tion” of the assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy, Mike presents the cas­es of a num­ber of mil­i­tary vet­er­ans who ran afoul of ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty. First, the pro­gram presents the case of Bill Tyree, a for­mer Green Beret who par­tic­i­pat­ed in “Oper­a­tion Watch­tow­er” (designed to direct plane­loads of drugs into Pana­ma for ele­ments of the CIA) and “Oper­a­tion Orwell,” designed to sur­veil, intim­i­date and black­mail polit­i­cal and law enforce­ment fig­ures who were attempt­ing to inter­dict the drug traf­fic stem­ming from “Watch­tow­er.” The dis­cus­sion also focus­es on: Marine Colonel Jim Sabow (mur­dered after he moved to halt cocaine ship­ments of as much as 2,500 kilos into bases com­mand­ed by Sabow); Albert Carone (who served the CIA, Mafia, U.S. Army and the NYPD in a capac­i­ty that involved major nar­cotics traf­fick­ing); the CIA back­ground of J. Porter Goss (chair of the House Per­ma­nent Select Com­mit­tee on Intel­li­gence) and the dis­ap­pear­ance of vet­er­an CIA heavy­weight Chip Tatum (who had been mak­ing the drug-traf­fick­ing ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty very uncom­fort­able.) The broad­cast con­cludes with a live inter­view, in which Mike dis­cuss­es a 62 mil­lion-dol­lar law­suit recent­ly filed by Bill Tyree (see above) against George Bush and the CIA, among oth­er defen­dants.
