54. You're welcome, lonestarnot! They're OUR educational posts.
My main point in putting together the original post is to get others aware of the "problem" and invite additional information and comment. My inspiration for the idea are the DUers, writers, authors, academics, journalists and the rest who've done the yeoman's work of compiling information on these criminals who've hijacked our country. Thanks to Al Gore's Internets, we can share the info, links and spread the truth.

BTW: DId you hear about the big symposium on CIA-drug connection? Most people, I'm sorry to write, probably haven't. The fault isn't with the organizer's PR person, but the nation's "free press."

cia-drugs symposium: a glimpse behind the veil

by Preston Peet ( - March 11, 2001

"Whatever system we are living under, it is not a democracy, and we are not protected by the Rule of Law", said Catherine Austin Fitts, the former US Assistant Secretary of State for Housing & Urban Development.

The US Government has known about drug trafficking among its assets, protected those assets helpful to whichever cause the US Government was backing at the time, and will never legalize any of the currently illicit substances as there is too much money being made from the War Against Some Drugs.

These were the overall messages at the CIA-Drugs Symposium in Eugene Oregon (June 10th, 2000). "I'm just really tired of the situation we've got here, and I really don't want my children to have to deal with it," said organizer Kris Millegan in his opening remarks. With a showing of the film Secret Heartbeat of America, by Daniel Hopsicker, detailing America's secret history during the later half of the 20th century setting the tone right away. This was not an event for those who didn't want to know the truth, or who believe what they don't know won't hurt them!

Speakers included Millegan, Hopsicker, Mike Ruppert (former LAPD narc and publisher of the newsletter From the Wilderness), Dedon Kamathi (former Black Panther, and still-outspoken activist), Catherine Austin Fitts (former Assistant Secretary of State for Housing & Urban Development under President Bush from 1989 to 1990), Cele Castillo, 12 veteran of the DEA, Rodney Stich (author and former FAA flight accident investigator), and Peter Dale Scott (former Canadian diplomat, Professor at University of California, Berkeley, and prolific author).

"This report is full of lies, flat out lies, in terms of what they've already admitted," remarked Scott, about the report released by CIA-man Rep. Porter Goss (R-FL). The US Select Committee on Intelligence (May 11, 2000) found "no evidence" of any involvement of any CIA employee or assets in the narcotics trade, at any time.
