MP3 One Seg­ment

The broad­cast begins with a Byzan­tine tale of indus­tri­al (and per­haps polit­i­cal) espi­onage. A “colonel” (alleged­ly with the U.S. Air Force) suc­cess­ful­ly nego­ti­at­ed with lead­ing elec­tron­ics firms to pro­cure some of their ‘lead­ing edge” tech­nolo­gies. Osten­si­bly to be used by the mil­i­tary as part of their “black bud­get,” devel­op­ment pro­gram, the equip­ment dis­ap­peared, along with the “colonel”. (For years, the U.S. mil­i­tary has uti­lized a “black bud­get,” appro­pri­at­ing bil­lions of dol­lars worth of mil­i­tary equip­ment under a cloak of secre­cy so tight that not even Con­gress knows how the mon­ey is spent.)

It appears that anoth­er coun­try, or some pri­vate orga­ni­za­tion received the equip­ment secured by “the colonel”. Mr. Emory spec­u­lates that Ger­many or the Under­ground Reich” may have been the authors of this scam.

Next, the pro­gram focus­es on Euro­pean pres­sure on the joint NSA-British instal­la­tion at Men­with Hill and the relat­ed Ech­e­lon net­work, a sub­ject that Mr. Emory has dis­cussed in the past. Act­ing at the insti­ga­tion of Ger­many, the Euro­pean Union has been attack­ing the NSA for alleged­ly intrud­ing on the pri­va­cy of Euro­pean cit­i­zens and cor­po­ra­tions. A Euro­pean Par­lia­ment “inves­ti­ga­tion ” of Ech­e­lon is stalled for a pre­dictable lack of con­crete evi­dence.

A spec­u­la­tive item of dis­cus­sion involves an arti­cle about a for­mer Army major snared in an anti-child pornog­ra­phy sting. A res­i­dent of Sand­point, Ida­ho, this for­mer offi­cer was in charge of con­tin­gency plans to evac­u­ate the Pres­i­dent in case of a nation­al emer­gency. He resigned in 1994. (Mr. Emory spec­u­lates about the pos­si­bil­i­ty that he may be linked to the white suprema­cist move­ment and that he may have been sub­ject to black­mail and con­se­quent polit­i­cal con­trol.

The pro­gram then turns to a Clin­ton Jus­tice Depart­ment inves­ti­ga­tion of the assas­si­na­tion of Orlan­do Lete­lier (for­mer Chilean ambas­sador to the Unit­ed States under Sal­vador Allende.) Part of an inter­na­tion­al assas­si­na­tion pro­gram known as Oper­a­tion Con­dor, the Lete­lier assas­si­na­tion took place in Wash­ing­ton D.C.

Fur­ther­more, it took place under the nose of then CIA Direc­tor George Bush (the father of George W.). Oper­a­tion Con­dor appears to have been con­duct­ed with the con­nivance of the Rea­gan-Bush fac­tion of U.S. intel­li­gence. An unim­ped­ed inves­ti­ga­tion of the Lete­lier killing could very well prove indi­rect­ly embar­rass­ing to George W. (“Dubya” is trad­ing on his father’s name for much of the polit­i­cal influ­ence he wields.)

The pro­gram con­cludes with a look at a report­ed plot against the life of Pres­i­dent Clin­ton while he was vis­it­ing India and Pak­istan in the ear­ly Spring of 2000. That report­ed attempt was attrib­uted to ter­ror­ist Osama Bin Laden, an indi­vid­ual whose fam­i­ly appears to have busi­ness ties to George W. Bush. (Record­ed 4/16/2000.)
