RE: Journalist Suing CIA for 5,000 Records Regarding Wikileaks, Judicial Watch Suing CIA in Relation to the Mena Arkansas Airport and You Can Too!

in #foia2 years ago

I hope that Ms Best prevails, but this is one rabbit-hole that often has fatal consequences. A friend and I got chased into the woods in Nella AR back in 1985 while hitchhiking up to Ft Smith by a couple of guys in a pickup truck (they were armed with pistols).

I've been diving into Mena for decades... I've hitched all over the country and this is the only place I ever had a problem. Seals was CIA, that's why he ran his operation with impunity. Everybody that's investigated the "Mena Connection" has either been killed or, as was the case with several state investigators and the IRS, were completely discredited and their careers destroyed.


Thanks for adding your piece here Rich. Arkancide is a terrible affliction. I think the Mena story is one of the most interesting and explosive conspiracies out there. There are so many facets to it. Perhaps the craziest one is Clinton's coroner (Malak) who would rule just about anything a suicide, it's incredible what powerful can get away with. I'm just listening to Corbett's episode on Gary Webb again, such a tragic ending and his death too was ruled a suicide with two gun shots to the face. Unbelievable.
I hope that Best successfully gets her hands on the Wikileaks docs, that would be interesting. However, it would probably be redacted to shit...


Malak was an incompetent idiot who was rewarded for his "loyalty." Bill's mother was a nurse (equally incompetent or just careless) who had several patients die unnecessarily on her watch. Malak covered up for her and his loyalty (and trustworthiness) was rewarded

One of the educational experiences in my youth that proved durably formative was the death of a coke dealer the police claimed had shot himself in the heart with a lever action rifle. Twice. I learned right afterwards that the police sold coke. One of the most educational aspects of the story was the division between those that believed, or claimed to believe, the police, and those that knew better.

I knew better, and shortly thereafter left town. I didn't think anyone really believed the police. I believed those that claimed to were also corrupt, and protecting their thugs, or were afraid. I still do. However, I'm not sure leaving town increased my safety, as I have seen similar sentiments and stories of such covert acts in every jurisdiction I have resided in subsequently.

Accordingly, I have come to believe that government is primarily a vector for corruption, and taxation is more important as a means of creating enforcement power and financial need than even it's eventual provision of kickbacks once bureaucrats dole it out to cronies. You can call me cynical. I am. However, I suspect I am not cynical enough.
