Iowa Congressman Jim Leach was the last guy to try untangling this knot. Its safe to say it had something to do with the Clintons.

"Seems like this same account is in Terry Reed's "Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA."

Most likely is. This is the Washington Weekly article that they (Wash. Weekly) did the investigating for.

There's also extensive Court Transcripts available wherein Welch outlines Hutchinson's part in the coverup. Want that copied to this?

I'm puzzled because it sounds like he had pulmonary anthrax and there hadn't been a case of that since 1976, until the recent cases. I don't think he had anthrax, though I agree there was plenty of funny stuff going on in Mena.

"Jim Leach was the last guy to try untangling this knot"

I and several others talked to Leach's folks about his report on Mena that was NOT released. We paid for it, but we don't get to see it.

Must be National Security, or sumpthin' , huh? :-)

I recall Leach saying "something's happened at Mena...we just don't know what it was."
Altho Leach tends to stand on the progressive side of Republican politics, I still like him a lot. He generally calls em right.

Leach's folks were about as frustrated as we were that it couldn't be released. Nothing against Leach, I just believe he chose to continue Living.

He said that "Something Happened in Mena" before the report was complete. Now he knows what.

Of course, "We Can't Handle It!"

I think leach got whiplashed when they put that muzzle on him.

Welch's padded envelopes were returned to him with the tops torn off. When he complained to the secretary, Kim McBride, in Hope, Arkansas, she told him that the padded envelopes were not torn when she mailed them. Welch told his supervisor, Lt. Finis Duvall. Rather than do an investigation to find out who was tampering with official state police mail, some of which was sensitive, Lt. Duvall just said, "Well, I'll be damn... wonder who's doing that."

Evidentally the envelopes did NOT travel through the mail in a torn condition, hence no poisoned postal workers. It's also pretty evident that the the Bill-Clinton-corrupted Arkansas state police force wasn't going to do anything about it. IMO it's not too much of a leap to think that the worst among the corruptees could have tampered with the envelopes right there in Welch's office and cleaned them up after the exposure was accomplished, hence no poisoned co-workers. Welch himself is proof that there are members of the Arkansas State Police who are NOT corrupt, but who do they turn to when something like this happens? The fish rots from the head down.

Investigator Wiley wrote down the names of Welch's medication and later confirmed that he was, in fact, being treated for anthrax. Other state police officers went to the hospital room, periodically, to help Debbie Welch, who stayed in the private room with her husband day and night for the entire 14 days that Welch was hospitalized. Investigator Charles Lambert and Investigator Bobby Walker were among those that heard the doctor discuss Welch's circumstances and the anthrax.

These men are further examples of integrity and personal loyalty within the Ark. State Police. Think for a minute what is meant by these officers 'helping Debbie Welsch' by periodically going to the hospital room where she was basically standing guard over her husband. Yeah, it helps emotionally to have friends drop by, but IMO they also posed a risk to anybody who might have happened by to be sure the 'job' on Welch got finished.

Remember?

It was the first thing I thought of when we were told there'd been no such cases since 1976. It makes me wonder if there have been other such cases that a) never got diagnosed or b) had the reports suppressed.

There was a case in Oklahoma where a perfectly healthy man (Miller?) was going to present evidence in that case that involved the Lums, Ron Brown's son and McLarty. He suddenly came down with a mysterious disease and died within a few days. Remember, if Welch had not been taken to a doctor who had military experience and knowledge of Anthrax, his poisoning would never have been diagnosed either, let alone cured.

I'm going to be off-line for some time now so if you flag me on something and I don't answer right away, that's why. I like this new system for self search because we can find posts to us even if we can't log on for several days.

Died October 12th 1997 ----- Ron Miller

Ron Miller, investigated by authorities over the sale of his company, Gage Corp. to Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. was the man who tape recorded Gene and Nora Lum and turned those tapes (and other records) over to congressional oversight investigators. The Lums were sentanced to prison for campaign finance violations, using "straw donors" to conceal the size of their contributions to various candidates.

Reportedly a healthy man, Ron suddenly took ill on October 3rd, and steadily worsened until his deah 9 days later. (This pattern fits Ricine poisoning or Anthrax) Owing to the strangeness of the illness, doctors at the Integris Baptist Medical Center referred the matter to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office.

The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office promptly ran tests on samples of  Ron Miller's blood, but has refused to release the results or even to confirm that the tests were ever completed.

I believe it's that old sad story about going to the outhouse and the Hogs got him.

Good catch - and don't forget Carlos Ghigliotti.

BDD and OKCS, any chance you guys know somebody local who might have some info on this one? IF this was anthrax, it can be hung directly around the Clintons' necks, or at least their henchmen. Thanks to your and several other Freepers' efforts, WE know the links to M.E. terrorists and the Clintons via OKC bombing (and other events).

At the very least we KNOW that they knew about and covered up the M.E. connection. Obviously many of us also believe it went far beyond stifling the truth in order to use the atrocity for their own gain.

Lots of people are awakening to the fact that the Clinton administration had foreknowledge of the atrocity. Some of those people still try to pretend it was a sting gone bad. More of us understand that it was AT LEAST allowed to proceed for the Clintons' benefit. Some of us believe the connection is tighter than that, but this is hard to PROVE.

If the Clintons or "their people" can be shown concretely to have used a terrorist tool like anthrax, it will be easier for the more uninformed to make the next steps in understanding just how much of our trouble comes from enemies BOTH foreign and domestic. One step at a time. Many people already blame the Clintons at least in part for the 9/ll atrocity because of their weak and cowardly responses to Bin Laden's other terrorist attacks.

The Ghigliotti case probably is never going to be questioned because it's been tidily and publically put away. But if the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office has refused to make their diagnosis public, they must have some reason (public panic?) for concealing it. MAYBE someone there had too much integrity to make a false diagnosis, but was willing to keep it quiet for the "public good".

If the letters to Daschle "poofed" anthrax in the post office prior to being delivered, a mailer would do the same. Anthrax spores would inescapably be on the outside of the envelope just in the process of adding it.

Which brings us to our present attacks. Whoever is sending the anthrax mail has probably infected themselves. What the FBI needs to check into recent deaths of young Muslim men. If they slammed into skyscrappers, I wouldn't be surprised if those who volunteered to do the mailings were silently allowed to die a warrior's death, then had funerals quietly within the Muslim American community.
