A DU collaborative investigation: Thelma Colbert, Shannon Ross and other deaths at DoJ
Without creating any controversy and within DU's rules let's begin this new collaborative investigation using George Oilwellian's archived thread that was started 4-26=2007 as a reference.

1. Yes this should be easy to investigate without controversy
I mean anybody who doubts the Bush Administration would kill a pair of US attorneys is probably a Freeper anyway.

from the posts contributed. The two archived references and all the hyperlinks are for those researchers that may want to add something of their own.

Tenet Healthcare Corporation just took on John Ellis Bush (yep, Jeb former Florida Gov) as a Director-and I am working through the many others connected to Tenet Healthcare during the 2000-2006 timeframe especially James A. Unruh.

"General Electric Faces Ruling as Novation Medicare Co-Conspirator"

The General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is defending its relationship with Novation, Inc. in a cartel to exclude Medical Supply Chain, Inc.

KANSAS CITY, MO (PRWEB) August 26, 2004 -- In final briefs submitted to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals last Friday, The General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is defending its relationship with Novation, Inc. in a cartel to exclude Medical Supply Chain, Inc. from entering the $1.3 Trillion dollar hospital supply industry which is in a desperate need to lower costs. On August 21st, the day following the final brief, the New York Times revealed that the US Department of Justice (DOJ) had issued criminal subpoenas in a broad inquiry into hospital supply purchases. The companies named in the NY Times article to receive a criminal subpoena with GE are Merck (NYSE:MRK), Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY), Becton Dickinson (NYSE:BDX), Cardinal Health (NYSE:CAH) and Genentech (NYSE :DNA); the G.E. Healthcare medical equipment unit of General Electric, all of which are members of the cartel Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) founded by GEs CEO Jeffery Immelt and alleged by Medical Supply Chain, Inc. to have been formed for the purpose of artificially inflating hospital supply costs.

Medical Supply Chain, Inc.s case against Novations investment banking partner, US Bancorp/Piper Jaffray (NYSE:USB)(NYSE :PJC) for participating in the hospital supply cost inflation scheme through antitrust prohibited practices involving Neoforma (NYSE:NEOF), Novations e-commerce subsidiary is also being heard by the same court and Medical Supply Chain, Inc.s president Samuel Lipari expects a decision on his three year battle to reform healthcare purchasing from the Denver court before the antitrust subcommittee of the US Senate meets again to consider new regulations to protect Medicare and Medicaid funded hospital supply purchasing.

About Medical Supply Chain
Medical Supply Chain, Inc. (MSCI) is a Health System service center providing supply chain resources and technology to the health system (hospital) and their trading partners. MSCI supports and complements the work and goals of the supply chain professional in their pursuit to strategically direct supply-chain activities and relationships. When this occurs real supply-chain value will find its way into healthcare and only then will the layers of cost and inefficiencies be removed. MSCI transforms health systems with empowerment to control their own supply chain costs.

10. Mob connections
What specific crime gangs- and their connections- had she prosecuted earlier. Names. Possible connections in Florida to Jeb or Abramoff might be an example of where you go from there. Connections to foreign drug cartels. These would supply the first layer of the conspiracy and the hit so that, if anything, it might appear revenge or connected to simple drug cases. The fact that nothing is breathed about this does not necessarily mean it is not being investigated, but if any of the possible direct enemies has a connection to Bushes or Bush buddies, you can bet nothing is being done.

Guilt by any association is not a bad start for the Bushistas.

15. it was noted in his early
days by people trying to protect him that Bush's fair haired boy was "naively" associating with mobsters and dangerous people. Poor, trusting Jeb. That un-sourced concern was never investigated in the media of course, but it was not that much a secret either.

14. This from TPM post about Barry Schlozman has more detail..
from a commenter on a post:

http://www.pressrelease365.com/pr/government/federal/al...

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Sandbagged Novation LLC Prosecution

Kansas City, MO 04/16/07 - Novation LLC a hospital supplier in Irving, Texas admitted in a Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals filing dated April 9th, 2007 that it was identified as a co-conspirator in a 2002 scheme to use US Bancorps trust division to prevent Medical Supply Chain from entering the market for hospital supplies by withholding escrow accounts and misusing the USA PATRIOT act as a pretext...

After Alberto Gonzales became Attorney General on February 3, 2005, the investigation of Novation was suppressed even though insider Novation executives came forward to the US Department of Justice with evidence of laundering hospital funds through the publicly traded electronic hospital supply marketplace Neoforma, Inc. that was then controlled by Novation, Volunteer Hospital Association (VHA), and University Health System Consortium (UHC) and is now owned by the electronic hospital supply marketplace GHX, LLC.

In an April 18, 2005 affidavit, Medical Supply Chain founder Samuel Lipari complained about FBI misuse of USA PATRIOT Act surveillance powers. The affidavit described interception of electronic communications and searches by law enforcement officials being used to interfere with and obstruct Liparis civil prosecution of the Novation defendants in Medical Supply Chain, Inc., v. Novation LLC et al, US District Court for the W.D. of Missouri No. 05-0210-CV-W-ODS

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales confirmed the existence of the program for warrantless surveillance, first reported in The New York Times, on December 19, 2005. However on January 25, 2006 Gonzales wrote that there has not been a single verified abuse of any of the provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act.

Samuel Lipari again complained on October 12, 2006 in the US Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit in St. Louis, Missouri that US District Attorney Bradley J. Schlozman failed to investigate evidence of public corruption brought to his office and permitted obstruction of justice to continue despite the injuries to Samuel Lipari, his family and associates.

On January 16, 2007 Attorney General Gonzales responded to criticism of his misuse of the USA PATRIOT Act by announcing John Wood would be taking Bradley Schlozman's place in Kansas City two days before he gave his previous testimony to Congress.

On March 22, 2007, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales met in St. Louis with U.S. Attorneys Catherine L. Hanaway and Bradley J. Schlozman of Missouri districts to conduct an undisclosed discussion related to the conduct of US Attorney Bradley J. Schlozman.

After Alberto Gonzales became Attorney General on February 3, 2005, the investigation of Novation was suppressed even though insider Novation executives came forward to the US Department of Justice with evidence of laundering hospital funds through the publicly traded electronic hospital supply marketplace Neoforma, Inc. that was then controlled by Novation, Volunteer Hospital Association (VHA), and University Health System Consortium (UHC) and is now owned by the electronic hospital supply marketplace GHX, LLC.

and the Northern Marianas that former acting USA Frederick Black brought up and which the Inspector General of the DoJ issued a Special Report about last June. Here's a link to that Special Report. Jack Abramoff had many LA connections.

That is what I meant by not causing "controversy"-whatever the reason was for removing that thread there are several others that we can all use to follow-up on these profoundly disturbing questions.

It is still unresolved even though Senator Grassley and others have looked into the mishandling of it. I wasn't aware of it until I reviewed some of the links in the referenced threads.

Ethan Brown has followed this case for years and his work on it "Criminal Intent" was published by Mensvogue.com.

23. DoJ's Thomas Crane Wales shooting death of October 11th 2001
Edited on Tue May-08-07 11:38 PM by bobthedrummer
is still unsolved.

There are other unsolved law enforcement related cases like the missing (since 2005) DA from Pennsylvania Ray Gricar and the Federal Bureau of Prisons intern Chandra Ann Levy murder.

These are all different from the rulings in the deaths of Thelma Colbert and Shannon Ross yet something is horribly wrong about all of these cases.

I'm still looking at the Boards and Executives of all these companies and private equity groups. Carol Lam and other DoJ employees were prosecuting Tenet Healthcare-many citizens had brought forth their stories and a group setup a website called Welcome to the Tenet Shareholder Committee.

A page from June 1, 2006 is numbing to review in the context of what we know about the criminals and the corruption of the administration of George W. Bush et al Jeb just became a Director at Tenet etc.

Here's that page from The Tenet Shareholder Committee.org

Tenet Healthcare agreed to a $900,000,000 False Claims Act settlement in June 2006.
One of the people at DoJ making that announcement was Debra Yang.

25. The Alice S. Fisher DoJ connection.
Alice S. Fisher was indoctrinated and programed like all loyal Bushies long before she was inserted into the DoJ via a recess appointment. She was put in charge of the Jack Abramoff criminal investigation even though she lacked the experience needed-but she has that one necessary requirement, she is a programmed, proven, vetted loyal Bushie.

Alice was a former lobbyist for the largest healthcare group, HCA, prior to her Decider's appointment. Alice was mentored by others and she passed through all the gatekeepers with ease.
She is ok with torture as long as it isn't called torture, she is ok with taking part in confiscating the pluder of other corrupted folks and loyally giving it to her Decider's chosen ones in the arbitrary non-linear chain of command.

Alice was put into positions of authority to prosecute those that had fallen out of favor with her Decider, and she is very good and loyal in doing that, it is highly rewarding work. She is really nothing more than another enforcer for a mob that thinks outside the box.

The majority of people that had performed their tasks and made careers as well as they could without the advantage of being loyal Bushies and true believers in whatever belief system loyal Bushies share at any given moment continually get purged, even loyal Bushies get that when they wake up and speak out-thus breaking the evil bonds of loyalty to their Decider.

That's my editorial this morning, here are some facts to consider and expand on.

Alice S. Fisher profile from SourceWatch (dated but valuable-most of her loyal Bushie career assignments become much clearer as well as the politicized professional and social networks)
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Alice_S._Fis...

Alice got appointed to co-chair the National Procurement Fraud Task Force, along with loyal Bushie Paul McNulty-this is another example of consolidation of a politicized crime family as people that did their jobs like the IG of loyal Bushie Lurita Alexis Doan's GSA, Brian Miller did as noted upthread yet he was slated to be purged.

National Procurement Fraud Task Force PR
http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/npftf /

Gee, the False Statement Acts $900,000,000 agreement of Tenet Healthcare announced by loyal Bushie Debra Wang was like Procurement Fraud only civil, not criminal in the corrupted DoJ-and Alice was a lobbyist for Tenet's competitor HCA.

Not to mention the DoD contactors and mercenaries-owned by the giants like GE, which is involved in the Lipari case against Novation LLC.

What a tangled web.

Finally, the backlog of cases and a chronology against Tenet have been noted by the good people at The Tenet Shareholder Committee.org, and the title of their page fits so well

"After Enron: Tenet?"
http://www.tenetshareholdercommittee.org/After_Enron_Te... (Medicaid and Medicare, people harmed, dying and victimized yet told they must pay for that-that's healthcare to a culture of death like the loyal Bushies).

Add what you have to this thread and others. Share it and pass it around-demand accountibility and prosecution.
