Subject: warning to free-born Americans of the next millennium.
English Reporter Reveals Depth of Media and Government Treachery in the U.S.
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the London Telegraph's Washington reporter who
arrived an admirer of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and became their nemesis
and target, leaves America with a warning for the American people.
Evans-Pritchard's relentless investigative reporting began shortly after
Bill Clinton was inaugerated as president in 1993 and was a constant
thorn in the side of the
Clinton Administration His factual reports became so upsetting to the
White House that he was singled out by the Clintons' as a problem
journalist in a 300 page
White House report. He was also condemned by the establishment U.S.
media (such as the Washington Post) for revealing facts about the
government which the
"mandarin class" have decreed are not to be reported.
Here is his farewell address to the American people at the end of April,
Rouse and Guard your Liberty! by Ambrose-Evans Pritchard
Let me state for the record that I was not sent to Washington as part of
a British government plot to destabilize the Clinton Administration in
revenge for US meddling in Ulster. Or at least, I don't think I was. Contrary to
assertions made in a Congressional hearing, I have never worked for
British military intelligence, or MI5, or MI6, or for that matter MI7.5 - the fabled Welsh branch!
No, I found my own way into a spitting match with President Clinton. It
was the last thing I expected upon arriving in Washington, for I had
succumbed to the Clinton charm years before at a meeting of the Democratic Leadership
Council. As for Hillary, I was rather taken by her image of flinty
Disappointment was swift, however. I was stunned when the new President
- barely installed in the White House - repudiated his campaign promise
for a tax cut. It was downhill from there.
The Clintons look good from a distance. As Yale Law School graduates
they have mastered the language and style of the mandarin class. It is
only when you walk through the looking glass into the Arkansas underworld they came from
that you begin to realise something is horribly wrong.
You learn that Bill Clinton grew up in the Dixie mafia stronghold of Hot
Springs, and that his brother, Roger, was a convicted drug dealer who
was once taped during under-cover surveillance saying "got to get some for my brother,
he's got a nose like a vacuum cleaner". You learn about sworn testimony
that links Clinton to cocaine smuggling in the early 1980s. You learn that Clinton's chief of
security in Little Rock was gunned down in 1993 by assassins who seem to
be enjoying immunity.
Let us not forget the allegation that Bill and Hillary helped empty a
bank called Madison Guaranty - but I will leave that to the special
prosecutor, Kenneth Starr.
Bill Clinton is not the first president with the skeletons of the mob in
his closet. Harry Truman, for instance, was a protege of the Pendergast
crime machine in Kansas City. All you have to know about Bill Clinton is that he chose
Patsy Thomasson - top lieutenant of convicted cocaine dealer Dan Lasater
- to be his White House chief of personnel.
Once that has sunk in, you can start to understand how seriously this
president has been compromised, and how much of a threat he could pose
to the democratic system if allowed to get away with incremental abuse at a national
The Clintons wasted little time taking charge of the US Justice
Department. All US Attorneys were asked to hand in their resignations.
It was a move of breath-taking audacity, one that gave the Clintons control over the
prosecutorial machinery of the federal government in every judicial
district in the country.
They then set about eliminating the Director of the FBI, William
Sessions, who was known for his refusal to countenance White House
interference in the affairs of the Bureau. The post of FBI Director is supposed to be a 10-year
appointment that puts it above politics. But Sessions was toppled in a
Washington putsch, without a murmur of protest from America's press, and replaced by the
hapless errand boy Louis Freeh. And I almost forgot, the Clintons
installed their friend Webster Hubbell as "shadow" Attorney General- until Hubbell was jailed
for Arkansas crimes.
When you are living through events day by day it is hard to know whether
you are witnessing a historic turning point, or just mistaking the usual
noise of politics for something meaningful. But there is no doubt that strange things have
been going on in America.
The Clinton era has spawned an armed militia movement involving tens of
thousands of people. The last time anything like this occurred was in
the 1850s with the emergence of the southern gun clubs. It is easy to dismiss the militia
as Right-wing nuts: it is much harder to read the complex sociology of
civic revolt. At the very least the militias reveal the hatred building up against the irksome
yuppies who run the country.
It is under this president that domestic terrorism has become a feature
of life in America, culminating in the destruction of the Oklahama
federal building on April 19, 1995. What set the deadly spiral in motion was the Waco assault two
years before, and the cover-up that followed.
No official has ever lost a day's pay for precipitating the incineration
of 80 people, most of them women and children, in the worst abuse of
power since Wounded Knee a century ago. Instead of shame and accountability, the Clinton
administration accused the victims of setting fire to themselves and
their children, a posthumous smear that does not bear serious scrutiny. It then compounded the
injustice by pushing for a malicious prosecution of the survivors.
Nothing does more to sap the life of a democracy than the abuse of
power. Public trust is dangerously low. According to polls, barely a
quarter of the American people now feel that they can count on the federal government to do the
A majority refuse to accept that Vincent Foster committed suicide, and
they have good reason for their doubts. The paramedics and crime scene
witnesses in Fort Marcy Park on July 20, 1993, tell a story that flatly contradicts the
official findings. A police Polaroid shows a .22 calibre bullet wound in
Foster's neck that the autopsy somehow failed to note. Are Americans to believe that Hillary
Clinton's closest friend shot himself twice, with two different guns?
The Washington press corps has chosen not to report on this sort of
thing, of course, because it always gives more weight to the utterings
of an "official" source, with a title, than it does to the testimony of a common citizen. It has
the matter backwards, in my opinion, because the "official" usually has
the greater interest in
Even so, the truth is getting out. Unauthorised stories are reaching the
public through the samizdat links of the Internet and talk radio. From
there it disseminates by word of mouth, spreading a thick layer of cynicism across the country.
Of all the bad things that Clinton has done to America, the worst is
turning the FBI into a federal replica of the Arkansas State Police.
Whether it is the persecution of dissident investigators in the air disasters of Pan Am 103 and TWA
800, or allowing the White House to peruse the secret files of political
opponents, or the alledged intimidation of key witnesses in the Foster case, the FBI is
starting to look like the enforcement arm of a police state.
The latest shocker is the decision to punish Frederic Whitehurst, the
whistle-blower who first came forward with tales of corruption at the
FBI crime labs. An internal inquiry has conceded that the lab tilted evidence "to
incriminate the defendants" and cooked up the theory that a fertiliser
bomb blew up the Oklahoma federal building after it found fertiliser at the house of a suspect,
Terry Nichols. But the Justice Department seems more interested in
denigrating Whitehurst, the lone hero of this sorry tale, than flagellating itself.
Look at the treatment of Carol Howe, the undercover informant who
tracked the early stages of what appears to be the Oklahoma bombing
conspiracy. The moment she surfaced as a threat to the "lone bomber" case against
Timothy McVeigh, this January, she was indicted on criminal charges.
The FBI claims that she was dropped as an informant months before the
bombing, but debriefing reports show the Bureau continued to receive her
intelligence weeks after the blast. They also show that she named members of a
neo-Nazi terrorist cell who had cased the Oklahoma federal building in
December 1994 with the intention of bombing it. Yet the FBI did not follow up her reports.
It conducted 26,000 witness interviews, most of them irrelevant, but
could not find time to pursue the suspects who were specifically named by a paid informant.
This leaves the nasty suspicion that the FBI is shielding this neo-Nazi
group in order to cover its own tracks. If it turns out that the bombing
was a bungled sting operation by the FBI, as some of the victims are now alleging, the only
fit response is to send bulldozers down Pennsylvania Avenue to flatten
the Hoover Building once and for all.
A monument should be raised on the rubble of the FBI headquarters that
reads Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? (Who Shall Guard the Guards?) as a
warning to free-born Americans of the next millennium.
Is Bill Clinton to blame? Of course he is. Degradation spreads from the
top down... Perhaps it is impolite for a London newspaper to say such
things about a president of the United States. Many people think so...Critics tell me
that I have invested too much emotion in my quarrel with the Clintons.
To that I plead guilty. It comes from befriending so many of their victims. I am content to be
blacklisted as the "mad scribbler" - as the Washington Post called me
this week - for I am confident that one day historians are going to view Clinton as a the
last great cad of the 20th century, or worse.
To the American people I bid a fond farewell. Guard your liberties. It
is he trust of each generation to pass a free republic to the next. And
if I know you right, you will rouse yourself from slumber to ensure exactly that.
