Skip to comments.Vince Foster: What the Media Won’t Tell You
Posted on 12/04/2003 4:33:52 AM PST by kattracks
Major media outlets reported Wednesday on the Supreme Court hearing of California lawyer Allan Favish's case that government photographs of Vincent Fosters death scene be released for public viewing. The media report that no fewer than five investigations have found that Foster committed suicide because he was depressed. But despite 10 years of denial by the major media, the Foster case has not closed as the Supreme Court hearing Wednesday demonstrated.
The case wont close because of the failure of authorities to make full disclosure and to conduct a full investigation into the case, including a complete autopsy.
Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
On the night of Fosters death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their investigation of Fosters office and strange death.
Since Fosters July 1993 death, the facts of his death have been obfuscated by friends of Bill and Hillary in the major media, but heres the undeniable truth:
There werent five investigations into Fosters death, as the media report. The Park Police, best known for their meter and horse patrols around Washington, were put in charge of the initial death inquiry of the most important federal official to die suspiciously since President Kennedy. The Park Police, contradicting standard procedure, declared the death a suicide before launching their inquiry.
The FBI never officially investigated the case but simply signed off on the Park Police probe. The bureau had little choice. The day before Fosters death, Bill Clinton hurriedly fired the director of the FBI, William Sessions. Sessions later charged that Clinton had politicized the bureau.
Later, Robert Fiske, selected by Clintons counsel Bernie Nussbaum and Janet Reno, quickly confirmed the Park Police probe as a suicide.
But when Ken Starr entered the investigation, he reopened the case. His chief prosecutor in the case, Miquel Rodriguez, later quit the Starr investigation, claiming that Starrs staff was engaging in a cover-up of Fosters death.
Rodriguez, a Harvard-educated federal prosecutor, argued that one of the Polaroid photos taken of Foster at the crime scene indicated an additional wound on Fosters neck never noted on the autopsy report. Favishs suit before the Supreme Court is seeking to release this photo, among others.
No fewer than three of the paramedics on the scene indicated in reports or testimony that the crime scene was consistent with a murder scene, not a suicide.
A careful FBI microscopic investigation of Fosters shoes found not a trace of soil or grass stains on them, though he supposedly walked several hundred yards through wooded Fort Marcy Park to where his body was found. [Years later, Starrs investigation found plenty of soil and grass stains. Rodriguez charged that the shoes were tampered with to produce such evidence.]
Foster was found with little blood around his body and despite claims that he fired the gun into his mouth, practically no blood was found on the front of his shirt.
Foster was found with a 1913 revolver no one in his family could claim, with two serial numbers, made from the parts of three or more guns. None of Fosters fingerprints were found on the gun.
The bullet that supposedly killed Foster was never found, despite intensive searches.
Despite claims to the contrary, no one who knew Foster, including Hillary, Web Hubbell and his own wife, saw signs of depression.
A so-called suicide note was found in an office briefcase that had been searched and found to be empty after Fosters death. The note was torn into 27 pieces. Yet an FBI examination found no trace of Fosters fingerprints on the note and a top Oxford handwriting expert found the note to be an obvious forgery.
Despite the enormity of the case, Fosters autopsy lasted an astounding 45 minutes. The coroner in the case had previously been overruled in other cases he declared suicides that were later found to be murders.
All of the X-rays taken during the autopsy are missing.
Complete crime scene photos dont exist. The Park Police said all the photos were accidentally overexposed. A series of close-up Polaroids, which Favish is suing for, remain. This is just a brief summary of the dozens of inconsistencies in the case. Two New York homicide investigators who looked into the case concluded that Fosters body had been moved to the crime scene and that murder could not be ruled out.
Despite overwhelming evidence of a cover-up, the media wont question the official ruling.
Ken Starr, who could find no criminal wrongdoing on the part of the Clintons during his intensive probe, confirmed a ruling of suicide. Starr even hired O.J. Simpsons defense expert to prove his case.
If ever there were a case for public disclosure of government records and photos, its the Vince Foster case. The high court should decide in Allan Favishs favor.
Livingstone and Kennedy went to the Fairfax County morgue to "identify" the body. They arrive in separate cars from some twenty miles, I believe. Previously, there were no keys found in Fosters pant pockets at the Park. No keys.
After Livingstone and Kennedy finished their "identification", magically there were keys in Foster's pocket. Go figure! Now here's the kicker. Livingstone and Kennedy, however, left the morgue in only one car. Anyone want to guess why they had to leave in just one call leaving one car behind?

Janet Reno hadn't yet gotten her little red truck. Couldn't have been her. ;)
There's a rumor that she's going to be indicted in the case against Hollywood fund-raiser and self-described witness against Bill and Hillary Clinton, Aaron Tonken after the first of the year.
We'll see. No one has nabbed the sleazeball yet, but timing is everything.
Another person, Hugh Sprunt also wrote extensively about the murder of Vince Foster, and there were others. Others like Mrs. Foster have been successfully silenced as to the circumstances of her husband's untimely death. Mr. Foster was obviously in the possession of knowledge that could lead to the demise of not only the Clinton's but also others who couldn't allow some truths to be told. Just as with JFK, crime and criminals are at the bottom of this; it couldn't be more clear!
Americans need to know WHO was really in charge during the Clinton years. Arkansas still harbors some very shady people who had come to Washington with the Clintons.
Does anyone know if George Soros is a US citizen?
As far as Vince is concerned, he didn't do himself.
I have always suspected Ken Star was thrown the Lewinsky bone, to throw everything else off track - knowing Americans love titillating stories and hoping Monica would cinch that letting Fosters and Browns deaths die quietly leaving the Clintons and their shady cronies in place. Enormous bribes must have changed hands...some one out there knows the whole story...what would it take to get it out?
Have you read Ambrose Evans Pritchard's book, The Secret Life of Bill Clinton? He has a great (and believe it or not humorous at times) chapter (Street Fascism). You have to read that. It's right out of a great spy novel. Pritchard, Chris Ruddy, and Patrick Knowlton sparring with the FBI and others, excellent.
