Mae Brussell: How to Distinguish a CIA Plot from a Workaday Atrocity
By Mae Brussell
Exeropt from "Why Was Martha Mitchell Kidnapped?" by Mae Brussell, The Realist, August 1972
Mae Brussell uses the examples of the Watergate break-in and Martha Mitchell abduction - widely misinterpreted as rogue executive branch "horrors" - but the deconstruction applies to any CIA covert operation. - AC
How can you recognize a CIA espionage plot as opposed to a "third-rate" burglary? The methods of operation include:
• The Cover Story
• Dummy Front Corporations
• Communications, Radio Control
• Migratory Birds, Job Changes
• Local Police, Military, Treasury Dept., Justice Dept., FBI
• Dirty Tricks
• Cities and Countries
• Witnesses Never Called, Questions Never Asked
1. The Cover Story
Every CIA operation, secret in nature, must have a cover story in the event one or more agents are discovered going about their dirty work. The immediate excuse for their presence must conceal the actual circumstances and divert attention from larger plans or co-workers.
The cover story for the Watergate arrests fell into four categories:
(1) Intelligence gathering - "Boys will be boys," we all sneak up on each other. The importance of the boys was ignored.
(2) Exile Cubans curious about Democratic attitude toward Castro -- The Bay of Pigs veterans involved at the Watergate, with high CIA officials, did not need such an elaborate plan to get this information for the exile community in Miami.
(3) Robberies at the Watergate -- The breaking in at the Democratic offices was explained as one of many robberies. If there were so many recently, why didn't they hire more guards instead of letting one go home sick that night without being replaced?
(4) Amateurs, Mickey Mouse, Mack Sennett, Keystone Kops -- The men arrested were made to look like silly fools with 1950 tools. But McCord was Chief of Security of all CIA headquarters at Langley, Virginia, Chief of Security for the Committee to Re-elect Nixon, and Chief of Security for the republican Convention! Ronald Ziegler, Nixon's Press Secretary, called them "third rate burglars." The news media that print this foolishness also print facts. Read both and figure out what kind of fools were arrested.
The Pentagon Papers offers a wonderful view of CIA "deniability." From August 24 until November 1, 1963, our CIA and State Dept. were arranging the coup d'etat that would remove Diem. Lieut. Col. Conein, CIA agent, was working with General Don from Vietnam. Their instructions were:
"Make security fully deniable."
"Issue instructions orally, to provide plausibility to denial."
"At last minute have cut-off with Conein and designee of Don, this officer completely unwitting of any details."
"If coup aborts, disavow, CIA agent Conein at any time it may serve national interest."
When James McCord and the other four men were arrested, friends, associates, exile Cuban community, all started their denials. Listed here are several out of more than 20 different denials given to the press during the two weeks following the arrests:
Cuban exile group in Miami. When Bernard Barker was arrested, the group that heard him attempt to recruit demonstrators for the republican Convention said, "He came to our meeting uninvited."
McCord Associates needed three members of a Board of Directors to become incorporated. Dorothy Berry, sister of James McCord and one of three directors of the agency hired by Mitchell for Security of the Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon, said: "I didn't know I was on the Board of Directors."
Ameritus: Reservations for the nine men at the Watergate Hotel were made on stationery from this organization in Miami. Barker's friend, Suarez, heads the group. When the men were arrested, Suarez said the letterhead was stolen." He knew nothing about reservations.
Martha Mitchell: Martha was emphatic there were five men with her in California. The White House and the Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon said: "Mrs. Mitchell only has one guard, and you know she always has problems at night."
Howard Hunt: 21 years with CIA, White House consultant on payroll of White House at the time he skipped out on the FBI. Also worked for Robert Bennett. When Bennett learned that two men arrested at the Watergate Hotel had Hunt's name and telephone number in their address books, Hunt was "fired if he didn't show up for work the next day."
Robert Bennett, fund-raiser for Nixon's secret $10 million. When asked about Hunt a few days later, he said, "The only comment I have from him is a flat denial that he was anywhere near the Watergate. (His gun was in his White House desk along with his walkie-talkies.)
Special Unit 16: Emergency and Contingency Plans, connected to White House. James McCord met with them every month. When McCord was arrested, they announced he "left the unit four months ago."
McCord fired too. As soon as president Nixon and John Mitchell discovered their Security Chief was arrested, they gave an indignant, "Mr. McCord is off our payrolls as of Monday morning."
Robert Odle can't speak. Robert Odle was fingered as the man from Mitchell's Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon who hired James McCord for their Security Chief. The White House would not let Odle be interviewed.
"He is not available because he is not a public figure."
Nixon and Mitchell discount responsibility for the Watergate Affair. Their employees are protected because they are important enough to hire agents but not important enough to be responsible for their decisions.
(The entire affair was CIA-staged for the purpose of removing Ted Kennedy as Democratic candidate. Pages 262-3 of Jack Olsen's Book, The Bridge at Chappaguiddick, indicate that the water pressure would have made it impossible to open the car door, so that Ted Kennedy could not have been driving, or even inside. The National Safety Council has not a single case in its records of any person ever escaping from a submerged automobile.)
The White House ordered Ms. Schleicher to stop giving out information. She then denied the first conversation took place. After giving the name of the book and material Hunt was reading, she changed the story and said she had never had any borrowing requests from Hunt, referred the reporters to the press office, saying she did not know who Hunt was.
3. Dummy Front Organizations
McCord Associates, Inc. -- When James McCord "left" the CIA after 19 years, he opened his own security agency that was hired through Robert Odle for security of the Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon.
At the time of his arrest, information about this agency was revealed. The Maryland Secretary of State's office showed they were not incorporated until November 19, 1971, several weeks after a contract had been signed with the Republican National Committee.
Incorporation requires three individuals on the Board of Directors. McCord, his wife and his sister, Dorothy Berry, were listed. Ms. Berry, employed by an oil company in Houston, was not aware of being on the Board of Directors.
McCord Associates was not licensed to perform security services, as required by law.
Their charter mentions nothing about security work. The agency is listed as "Business service, studies, analysis, reports in connection with business, industry, academic institutions."
This company filed no 1972 tax returns with the Secretary of State by the April 15 deadlines.
The entire CIA is called the "Fairfax Highway Research Station" and conceals its purposes. If James McCord is not listed for security work, was this the headquarters for planning a contingency to the elections without it being part of the regular CIA opertions?
Ameritus -- Ameritus was described as a secret Cuban revolutionary group. Hotel reservations were made in their name. Federal officials never heard of this group, even though it was a corporation. Hector DeLana, Miami accountant whose name was listed as Treasurer, was not on the Board of Directors. There was no record of Ameritus in Dade County Business Transactions.
Barker Real Estate -- Bernard Barker's real estate office in Miami was a mystery. He had the license for only one year before the arrest. Source of income for Barker is money from Latin America. Where does he invest it? What taxes are paid on money like the $89,000 cash he had since April 1972!
Barker and Howard Hunt were supposed to be business partners in Nicaragua and Santa Domingo enterprises that "fell through." Were they CIA fronts or contacts because all the time they were together Hunt was in the CIA, and Barker was a conduit of funds with Hunt during the Bay of Pigs.
Mullen and Company, public relations -- This office is a nest of CIA agents: Hunt, Bennett, Mullen, Caddy. Robert Bennett admitted that his 75-90 organizations which raised money were "dummy fronts." This is what the CIA is all about. They create false organizations to fund their operations, through foundations and other names which mean nothing at all except that CIA money passed through the doors to selected agents.
Interprogress, Washington, D.C. -- Robert Bennett, president of the public relations fun at which Hunt works, said the firm also has an affiliate called Interprogress that is attempting to increase American trade with communist countries. The secret funding for the Watergate gang now comes from Chile; secret funding for Nixon comes from Bennett's office; and the question of ITT financial connections is related to Chile. What countries does Bennett's office contact, and do they include Chile!
All State Investment Fund, Inc., Panama -- Michael Suarez, head of Ameritus, described All State as a subsidiarv of Ameritus. Bernard Barker is associated with Suarez and used Ameritus stationery for reservations at the Watergate. Is All State Investment Fund one of the many Pan-American CIA fronts for operations between Florida and Central America?
Pan-American Aluminum Havana -- Frank Sturgis was owner of a salvage company, and concealed from the court his part-time employment with a corporation called Pan-American Aluminum. What kind of organization is this aluminum company?
Houston Oil Company -- Many people from the CIA were associated with Houston and various other oil companies at the time of John Kennedy's murder. John Connally is closely tied in with oil interests and CIA foundations in Houston, and is politically lined up for a very important Washington position again. Because of the conspiracy that killed Kennedy, and the close-knit group of people that worked together through those years, any possible source of funds or contacts into McCord Associates should be investigated.
Robert Bennett, Mullen public relations -- Robert Bennett admitted setting up "dummy" front organizations to raise $10 million for Nixon's re-election; 75-90 organizations were supposed to donate this money. John Mitchell refuses to reveal sources of the money.
All of the men in those offices at one time -- Howard Hunt, Douglas Caddy, Robert Bennett and Robert Mullen -- were part of the CIA. Bennett's office, The American Dream, collected cash before the legal date stipulated to declare the donor.
James McCord's salary from this Nixon fund could have come from the CIA.
The fund-raising committees that Bennett formed bearing names such as "Supporters of the American Dream" -- were established in 1971 as a means of legally collecting Nixon campaign contributions without reporting them under the Federal Corrupt Practices Act.
Among the contributions sent to the organization was $325,000 given to 68 different committees by the political arm of the Associated Milk Products, Inc., a cooperative with more than 30,000 member farms in 20 states.
The contributions led to a suit filed by Ralph Nader's Public Citizens, Inc., which charged that the Nixon administration raised government milk support prices as a payoff for the donation.
Everybody needs milk.
Even Richard Nixon's.
Bernard Barker-- Known money man, conduit of funds for CIA-planned Bay of Pigs; worked with Howard Hunt, planner of the operation. April 24, $89,000 from an unknown Mexican bank was put into Barker's account at the Republican National Bank in Miami.
Barker said that Mexican money came from Chile, where he "can't get people involved because of fear of retaliation from the socialist government in Chile." Is this the ITT money, CIA into Chile through ITT, that goes to Mexico, then Miami, then Washington?
May 8, Barker took $89,000 cash out of the bank in $100 bills. When arrested at Watergate Hotel, the men had $6,500 of those bills from Miami, Mexico and Chile. McCord and others at Watergate were paid from this Miami bank.
If James McCord's money, both from the Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon and the Watergate Hotel robbery, is from secret funds, how can we find out if the CIA supplied the provocateurs in Washington as well as the security for the conventions?
Would any of the secret money raised by Bennett's office go into Chile, to Mexico, to Miami, to the Watergate? If so, the White House would be paying to institute martial law as in the "Squad 19" plan because of the provocations that could follow if enough people were paid in Miami.
Does a share of all tax money that goes into security, or the CIA, appear in the Nixon-Agnew fund while the Democrats have to raise their cash with barbecues and telethons?
Do "good Democrats" like Hubert Humphrey get CIA money if they are candidates?
5. Communications, Radio Control
James McCord, hired for Security of the republican National Committee, was assigned his own radio frequency on May 7, 1972.
Does the Democratic Party have their own radio frequency?
The Watergate arrests revealed sets of walkie-talkies. Taken from the White House desk of Howard Hunt were two walkie-talkies that could connect with the others.
After five men were arrested and four escaped, police said that "Other persons staying at the Watergate Hotel could use hotel rooms for listening posts to monitor conversations beamed by transmitters." John Mitchell lived at the Watergate Hotel. Could Martha have found men listening through the walls?
Ken Clawson, Deputy Director of Communications in the White House, was giving out interviews about Charles Colsen and Howard Hunt. Did he work with these men?
Robert Odle, the man who hired McCord for Security, was staff assistant with Communications in the White House.
Howard Hunt, CIA 21 years, worked with developing and guiding media operations.
James McCord did radio operation work for the FBI 3 years.
The importance of radio and communication control at the time of martial law and the cancellation of elections is described in Stephen Rousseau's Death of a Democracy, Greece and the American Conscience.
A coup d'etat was possible in Greece because all communication was limited to a few people. The regular sources were cut off, and taken by surprise.
The suit against the five arrested may charge them with "unlawful interception of wire communications" and "unlawful possession of wire devices." Is there any way the Democratic National Committee offices could be cut off in case of an emergency, whereas the republicans, through their own radio frequency, could continue to communicate?
Methods of control by fascists in Greece, achieved by our CIA, must be examined now.
All nine men registered at the Watergate Hotel used names from CIA novels by Howard Hunt. They also used code names from Bay of Pigs days, and other identification. Some of the names were not revealed except to mention the fact they were used.
Howard Hunt -- "Eduardo"; Writing pseudonyms: Robert Dietrich, John Baxter, Gordon Davis
James McCord, Jr. -- James Martin
Bernard Barker -- "Macho"; Frank Carter
Frank Sturgis -- Frank Fiorini, a dozen aliases, including Joseph Hamilton; at the time of arrest, Sturgis had a birth certificate, two driver's licenses, Social Security card with the name of Joseph Hamilton.
(When James Ray, the alleged killer of Martin Luther King, left Missouri State Penitentiary April 22, 1967, he was given Social Security card 318-24-7038, alias John Larry Raynes, gift of the same CIA-FBI printing office.)
7. Migratory Birds, Job Changes
In the course of my research on political assassinations, I noticed a moving pattern of agents from the time of their assignments until delivery. Cross-filing the witnesses before the Warren Commission, I labeled them "Migratory Birds."
The large majority of people who testified had certain professions; living patterns. They moved into Dallas, changed occupation and housing. After the assassination, by the time they were asked to testify, they had new jobs that revealed a lot about the military-type conspiracy involved.
From that time on, I followed job changes and contacts until the shooting. Just from the brief news of the Watergate boys, it is obvious there was a shifting of positions. Here are a few examples:
James McCord, Jr. -- Chief of Security, Langley, Virginia, CIA, for 19 years. Left in 1970. What other clients since he left? If McCord Associates not formed until November, 1971, where did he work until that time? Special I6-Man Emergency Unit for radicals; military officials said he "left there four months ago."
Howard Hunt -- Worked with CIA 21 years, left same time as McCord, in 1970. Went to Mullen & Company, worked as White House consultant, every reason to believe those were still CIA jobs but he was severing from large CIA institution, like McCord. Was it for 1972 plans?
Al Wong -- Was secretive when asked how long he worked for Secret Service. This is important because he supposedly hired McCord for the all-important Miami assignment, and did not investigate Louis Tackwood charges.
The time of service is important to the life of the president. Winston Lawson, responsible for Kennedy's life in Dallas, never was in charge of a trip like this before. He was only in Secret Service school at the time Kennedy was inaugurated. For his dangerous journey to Texas, Kennedy needed the best, longest, most experienced security.
Ken Clawson -- White House aide, interviewed about Howard Hunt and others - "new in the White House" and "used to be a reporter."
Robert Odle -- The man who hired James McCord for Security Chief of Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon. Worked in Communications with Herbert Klein from January 1969-May 1971. In 1971 he left Communications to work for Mitchell's committee.
Bernard Barker -- Real estate office in Miami. Described as being a realtor only a year, no mention of occupation before that time. Co-partner of CIA agent Howard Hunt in Nicaragua, other countries, in Latin America.
Frank Sturgis -- When he was arrested, he was hesitant to talk about Pan American Aluminum in Havana where he was a "part-time employee." Employed by Hampton Road Salvage Company, but on the move, in Mexico; travelled. Referred to as "soldier of fortune" which simply means being paid money by the CIA to do various jobs which we don't want to admit arranging.
There is not enough information yet on the homes or apartments these various men live in.
In all CIA work, with Oswald, Ray, Bremer, the men kept homes away from home, isolated from everyday activities. James McCord had two apartments in Miami. Was one to meet for security arrangements needed for the convention, while the other apartment arranged the provocations?
9. Local Police, Military, Treasury Dept., Justice Dept., FBI
Police -- In order for a CIA operation to be successful, it must achieve desired goals without being detected. This requires planning and assistance from many law enforcement agencies and government agents.
Louis Tackwood describes in The Glass House Tapes the Los Angeles Police Department, and how it plans conspiracies that will eventually lead to fascism and a police state.
In the Watergate Affair, like all CIA activities, local police could assist by many methods. They didn't disclose the names of other men registered at the hotel, which could help find the suspects. There was a total absence of information about the Watergate Hotel staff. The FBI ordered the hotel manager "not to speak" after it was learned that his name and telephone number were with one of the men arrested.
The accounts of the arrest, and information that came as a result of the arrests, shielded the suspects. If the police and FBI were looking for members of the Black Panthers, the police would give out detailed information and have an all-out description of the missing agents.
In Dallas, Memphis, Los Angeles and Maryland, all suspects were allowed to get out of town by the local police while the FBI narrowed in on one chosen patsy for the crimes. The Watergate Affair had the same similarity.
James McCord, arrested while wearing rubber gloves with his fine dinner suit, addressed the Police Association this year on "security." Did he give them a lesson on what to do if they get caught in the act? Police Departments are to provide security. As Tackwood illustrates, some members of police departments are allowed to create chaos.
Military -- Every one of the five arrested at the Watergate had close contacts with branches of the military service.
James McCord, Lt. Col. in the Army Reserves, worked with the Army and Navy and on the Emergency Contingency Unit.
Bernard Barker worked with Ex-Combatientes Manuel Artime, and served in the U.S. Army in World War II.
Frank Sturgis was a Lt. Reserve in Civil Air Patrol. Named in connection with the John Kennedy assassination, along with Frank Sturgis, was David Ferrie, Civil Air Patrol. Lee Harvey Oswald, before joining the Marines, worked under Ferrie in Civil Air Patrol.
Eugenio Martinez and Virgilio Gonzales were closely associated with Fort Jackson troops, the exile Cuban veterans.
Also, Howard Hunt was in the Navy Reserves and the U.S. Army Air Corps.
And Angel Ferrer was offering Washington "direct combat troops when needed."
Treasury Dept. -- The Treasury Dept. is responsible for Secret Service protection.
Al Wong, Secret Service agent who hired James McCord, was described as "secretive" about his experience or length of time with the Secret Service.
Howard Hunt, "consultant to White House on Narcotics Intelligence," works through the Treasury Dept.
Larry Shears, intelligence agent for the Treasury Dept., revealed plans to kill Cesar Chavez and Eldridge Cleaver through the Narcotics Department. Evelle Younger, now Attorney General of California, named as a planner in the "Squad 19" tapes, denied the charges. If Howard Hunt and Charles Colsen, who works in the "dirty tricks department" in the White House, are connected with Narcotics Intelligence, could they be part of those plans?
The Justice Department and the FBI -- There is a web that connects the CIA operations, the FBI that investigates them, and the Justice Dept. that prosecutes the selected agents.
Only carefully selected agents examine the evidence, represent the men arrested, or interview the men convicted if and when they are ever found.
The Nixon-Mitchell Justice Dept. consists of an agency that hires assassins; plants evidence against the innocent; pays informers or offers parole from narcotics or other arrests if they will lie about a suspect; creates conspiracies; designs special Tactical Squads for further repressions.
John Mitchell, after the Watergate arrests, decided to "retire." That is the style of the Nixon administration to avoid arrests. The My Lai officers, Abe Fortas, Will Wilson, General Leavelle, John Mitchell -- all just step down from office.
A group of black republicans, hoping to win Nixon nazi smiles upon their faces, were planning a pro-Nixon dance called Do the Nixon. The only step they needed to learn for the dance troupe is how to "step down" when the heat is on, run and get out while you are still ahead.
How can the FBI or Justice Department begin to investigate the Watergate Affair? John Mitchell and Patrick Gray III, both organizers for Nixon's presidency many long years, are not about to expose any plan to keep their power from the hands of the electorate.
10. Dirty tricks
The CIA has a "dirty tricks" department. Richard Nixon has a "dirty tricks" consultant. Martha Mitchell said she witnessed "dirty tricks" that caused her to become "a political prisoner."
The president of the United States should be above these kinds of games, but that is not the way Nixon came to power.
Colson was reported to have written a smear article about Senator Tydings of Maryland just before his last election that was printed in Life magazine. After Tydings lost the election, all charges were proven false, but the vote of one more member of the Senate was assured for whatever votes were needed by Nixon.
11. Cities and Countries
CIA conspiracies are complicated. They involve a network of cities; geographic areas that are used often for espionage agents to lose their past associations.
The Watergate Affair centers around Washington, New York, Miami, Texas and California.
Countries the agents visited were Chile, Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Spain, Panama and the Dominican Republic.
Missing Link Key Shop -- Virgilio Gonzales, arrested at the Watergate Hotel, worked as a locksmith at the Missing Link Key Shop in Miami.
The same week the five men were arrested in Washington, all keys to the convention centers for the Miami halls were stolen. Fifteen keys on one ring, removed from an attache case inside a locked room, were missing. They opened all the major locks at the convention hall complex that included three buildings.
"Balderdash, no conspiracy" -- Jack Anderson, who carefully ignores any facts or evidence of conspiracies that killed President John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy or Martin Luther King, put down research author Don Ritey last summer for attempting to link a high level plot of the CIA, FBI, Dallas Police; Anti-Castro Cubans, and the Syndicate.
When Frank Sturgis was arrested at the Watergate Hotel, Jack Anderson went to court immediately to vouch for his longtime friend and source of information. Sturgis had been questioned by the FBI about his connections to the John Kennedy murder.
The widow of Drew Pearson, Jack Anderson's former boss, could have in her husband's files important information that was passed to JFK on October 28, 1963, saying, "Cancel Dallas trip. Arrest Lee Harvey Oswald." Anderson refused to help find this memo, passed it off as "too far-fetched."
Blueprints and Air-Conditioning Plans: Bernard Barker asked architect Leonard Glass for plans of the floors, exits, entry at the Democratic Convention headquarters.
Eight months later, Bernard Barker was arrested at the Watergate Hotel after illegally entering the Democratic National Committee.
13. Witnesses Never Called, Questions Never Asked
The FBI, Justice Dept., and police agencies conceal clandestine witnesses and evidence that would prove conspiracies exist. Many questions important in trials or investigations are never asked.
Included in my research on cases where I believe the CIA is involved are hundreds of questions never asked -- if and when the carefully selected attorneys go to trial. Here are a comparatively few questions about the Watergate Affair. There are dozens more that need further investigation to unravel the relationship of the arrested persons to our espionage establishment.
McCord, CIA, Houston, Dorothy Berry (sister of James McCord)-- Is Ms. Berry, on Board of Directors of McCord Associates, Inc., hired for security of the republican Convention and the Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon, associated in any way with any CIA foundation in Houston, such as the Hobby Foundation, the M.D. Anderson Foundation, the J.M. Kaplan Fund?
What other clients did McCord Associates serve as security services? Names, countries, contracts? What taxes were paid on those services? How many employees? If James McCord is not still CIA, he should have a large organization in order to be hired by the White House and John Mitchell.
What taxes were paid by Ameritus? Who are the actual Board of Directors, since one of the supposed signators -- Hector DeLara, a Miami accountant -- did not even know his name was on the incorporation papers? How long has Ameritus been in existence? For what purposes?
Hector DeLara was surprised when informed that records in Tallahassee list him as Treasurer of Ameritus. One of the firm's officers told him the group intended to hire him as Treasurer, then apparently decided against him and forgot to tell him his name was used.
Why has the FBI delayed publication of the source of the $89,000? The money made an around-the-world trip to the Republican National Bank. If $89,000 was sent from Chile, to Mexico, to Miami for "investment purposes," why was it used for provocateurs? Who put it into the Chilean bank?
Investment business of Bernard Barker -- How many land investments and properties were transacted through the Barker real estate firm?
Which businesses of Barker and CIA Howard Hunt in Central America were legitimate "failures" - or were they all CIA fronts? Does Howard Hughes' new interests in Nicaragua have any connections to Hunt and Barker's investments?
Why does the FBI and the White House prohibit investigators from speaking with persons who could provide clues on where to find suspects?
How many more guns are in White House desks? If Howard Hunt, White House consultant, kept a weapon in his desk, how many of them are allowed?
Investigation of the break-in -- The Committee to Re-elect Richard Nixon "is conducting its own investigation of the alleged break-in and bugging of the Democratic National Committee Headquarters." Mr. DeVan Shumway said the "inquiry has been going on for some time." If John Mitchell, Mr. Justice Department, and Patrick Gray III, appointed by Mitchell and Nixon, can't do a good enough investigation on their own, what agencies will the Committee use to investigate?
What were the last security jobs Al Wong, Secret Service, had before coming to the White House? How long has he been with the White House?
Is there a conflict of interest in having U.S. Attorney Titus prosecute James McCord and his friends? Titus was the author of the controversial D.C. Crime Bill of 1970, and is a known conservative. The group arrested at the Watergate had direct involvement in ways to handle "radicals." Harsh laws were put into effect after provocateurs created the circumstances supposedly necessary for them.
Frank Sturgis said he joined Bernard Barker in order to aid Cuban exiles from Spain to enter the U.S. He wanted the importation of 30,000 to 40,000 Cubans in exchange for certain services. The Cuban population in Miami and the U.S. has a greater income, more mobility and better job opportunities than blacks in Florida.
Why do we keep bringing refugees from "communism" to the U.S. before taking care of our own? Why are the ex-communists used and trained to turn against the blacks or students of this country? What percentage of paid CIA provocateurs are from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America?
Did any of the Young Republicans being imported by Sturgis have contact with the organization CUSA (Conservatism U.S.A.) that helped the John Birch Society in Dallas in 1963?
Where are Larry Schmidt, Bernard Weissman, Volkar Schmidt, Dale Davenport, Norman Baker, Larry Jones, Bill Burley, Ken Glazebrook, and the group from CUSA that were in Dallas Nov. 22, 1963? What have they done the past nine years?
How much contact does Claude Kirk of Florida, and his Wackenhut Organization -- a private police agency, made up of retired military and FBI -- have with Frank Sturgis, Bernard Barker or Michael Suarez, the head of Ameritus?
Why did Richard Helms, Chief of the CIA, and William Buckley, editor of National Review, recommend Howard Hunt as a White House consultant? After 21 years with the CIA in every possible position, Hunt needed no "introduction."
It is difficult for most Americans to imagine that certain persons, even members of their own families, could have any part in a conspiracy to end the democratic process. Rationalizations for political assassinations vary. The most inclusive umbrella is the excuse that violence always existed and political systems are accustomed to murders.
This fact of violence is used to conceal planned violence.
Germany, like England, Italy, France, Austria and other conservative, authoritarian and militaristic ruling class, changed its political system after its World War I defeat. Behind the back of the public ruling class developed an illegal, secretive, sadistic, well-organized second government.
This group of clandestine agents moved upwards into political power systematically, strategically and secretly. They manipulated the Supreme Court, lower courts, police departments, the media and electoral processes.
Hours after their agent Adolph Hitler was "elected" into power, the team surfaced for what they really were: fascists.
The world had never known such a large number of sadistic, cruel, inhuman things since life began on this earth.
Those Germans who realized that defeat was imminent near the end of World War II, were incorporated into our State Department, FBI and the White House. They formed our CIA with their Chief of Intelligence, Gen. Reinhard Gehlen. Richard Helms, acting head of the CIA today, is part of the original team of clandestine operatives.
The Watergate Affair gives a clear view of how that secret government was operating, their chain of command, and their determined intent to do "something with the Democrats" as well as people at the republican Convention.
This article was completed for The Realist on July 11, 1972, the same day that Richard Nixon and John Mitchell wanted to put off investigation of the Watergate Affair. According to Associated Press: "The Committee for the Re-Election of the President is worried that a hearing on a suit involved in the break-in and bugging attempt could cause 'incalculable damage' to president Nixon's campaign. The Committee asked U.S. District Court to postpone suit against [them] until after the November 7 election. To hear the suit before the election, the Committee said, could deter campaign workers and contributions, force disclosure of confidential information and provide the Democrats with a reason to hold a news conference."
President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964. Parts of that Act were violated at the time of Martha Mitchell's abduction, and in the way she was handled.
Her telephone was pulled from the wall, five men silenced her, and an unknown substance was injected into her body against her will.
As a friend of the court and a citizen, I have a right to charge that there has been a violation of her civil rights by those in responsible positions. It is in the national interest that she be permitted to talk freely before a responsible group.
We want to know what she saw. Martha Mitchell is the wife of one of the most responsible men in this nation. When she is treated in this manner, all of us are involved in having a right to know who is doing these things.
What happened to her could happen to any of us.
Those guilty of making her a prisoner are subject to $10,000 fine and 10 years in prison If a conspiracy is proven, each and every person involved is subject to the same penalties.
