THE CHANDRA LEVY AFFAIR, Part two
by Sherman H. Skolnick 08/20/01

The story I posted about Chandra Levy, 6/22/01, should be considered as Part One.

At that time I was about the first to raise questions as to how she somehow wiggled her way into the press office, in Washington, D.C., of the FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS. The oil-soaked, spy-riddled, war-mongering monopoly press seemed to spend all their time raising only tidbits of sexual matters about Chandra and Congressman Gary Condit.

The District of Columbia authorities and the FBI, at least according to press accounts, had not taken an interest in or interviewing fellow employees of hers in that press office. Notice the time-line, tending to show the importance of where Ms Levy was an intern.

===Late November, 2000. Having earned at a California university a Master's Degree in criminal justice and journalism, Ms Levy was given a job as an intern in a very sensitive place. [And what domestic and/or foreign intelligence agencies arranged THAT?] That was about the time Timothy McVeigh decided not to appeal further the murder conviction as to the bombing of the Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995.

In December, 2000, the Federal trial Judge Richard Matsch in Denver set the McVeigh execution date as May 16, 2001. That piece of data got lost in the press shuffle as it occurred on the same day that the "Gang of Five" on the U.S. Supreme Court installed George W. Bush as the "occupant" and "resident" of the White House. Albert Gore, Jr., having won the popular vote nationwide by some 600,000 votes, became the un-inaugurated President of the U.S. That was historically similar to the 1876 Presidential Election when U.S. troops blocked Tilden, who won the popular vote, from approaching the inauguration site where Hayes was sworn in as "President". The Hayes forces, like with George W. Bush, stole the White House through an Electoral College vote using a corrupt U.S. Supreme Court Judge as well as corruption in the FLORIDA voting. [Visit our website stories on the year 2000 Election and Gore Vidal's book called simply "1876".]

===As the time ticked away toward the execution date, Ms Levy reportedly had taken a great interest in unearthing details through her press office connection. After all, as a child she used to volunteer to assist the local police in her home district. At an early age she hoped to have a career reportedly in the American CIA. The McVeigh affair was a repository of numerous secrets tending to incriminate George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, and then White House occupant George W. Bush. Such as the suppressed and concealed Iraqi connection to the multiple bombings in Oklahoma City. Such as, the publicly-undisclosed FBI surveillance tapes showing in the month before the bombings, McVeigh in the company of Iraqi military officers, supposed "defectors" (actually double agents) brought into the U.S. by the Elder Bush. Two thousand such Iraqi military officers, some from intelligence units, since the end of the Persian Gulf War in 1991, have been settled, financed, and housed in OKLAHOMA CITY. Making the arrangements was the Elder Bush as President, and continuing the same with Clinton as President and then George W. Bush as White House resident.

[Visit our website related stories, such as "The Secrets of Timothy McVeigh".]

===Some weeks after her disappearance on the afternoon of May 1, 2001, the FBI contends Ms Levy was last in her apartment in the District of Columbia that afternoon using her computer. [Could someone else having been using her computer, somehow knowing her password?] The FBI announced that they had retrieved, from her hard disk drive, from that afternoon, some 38 websites viewed by her. They proclaimed that none of them was important. REALLY? They said she [or was it her alter ego and ghost] had clicked on GoFrance.About.com. It is a website for those wishing to visit France. Maps, travel guides, and such,are given on-line. The site is reportedly also used by the French CIA to track those interested in visiting France who should, in their view, be surveilled. In our original story, we raised the questions of Ms Levy with The Mossad, Israeli intelligence, comparing the situation to that of Monica Lewinsky. A section of The Mossad has long collaborated with a unit of the French CIA, sort of an open secret.

Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff, in a supposedly exclusive story, claimed Gary Condit had an alibi for the early afternoon of May 1, 2001. Condit was supposedly in the office of Vice President Richard Cheney. And that Cheney supposedly was trying to win Condit over to the GOP position as to the electric mess in California. [Newsweek website 7/20/01.] Going back to the time Isikoff was with the sister publication, the Washington Post, he seemed to always be a reputed front for foreign intelligence and the American CIA, poo-pooing any real information as merely the ravings of "conspiracy theorists".

Knowing a lot about him and the Washington Post as a front for the American CIA, we call him Michael ISAFRAUD. [Visit our website story, "The Late Grand Dragon of The Washington Post".]

===A few days after her disappearance, the FBI sheepishly admits on May 10, 2001, that they somehow "forgot" to give McVeigh's lawyers some three thousand documents. [Caused by details Ms Levy uncovered through the Bureau of Prisons?] So, the execution date is changed to June 11, 2001. There are ten media people selected to be at the death house window at the Terre Haute, Indiana, prison, to witness the execution of McVeigh. One of them, not contradicted by the others, says that "he appeared to be still breathing or what appeared to be shallow breathing, even after being pronounced dead and his eyes remained open". Video interview on MSNBC, (video streaming,6/11/01), of Susan Carlson, reporter for WLS-AM Radio, Chicago. [Story was suppressed by most other media, including all mass media in Chicago, including apparently her own radio station.] Some doctors ridiculed the way the prison people put the go-to-sleep sedative in McVeigh's leg, not a major upper body vein. In the leg, the sedative would take, some doctors claim, four hours to act. Hey, isn't a go-to-sleep sedative supposed to make you do that, that is, close your eyes and go to sleep?

===July 29, 2001, some five weeks after I raised the Levy-Bureau of Prisons issue, the Washington Times publishes a story entitled "Who is Chandra Levy?" In it they state, "Her job at the Bureau of Prisons information office required her to do internet searches and scan newspapers to prepare daily news summaries, answer telephone calls and mail, and help with SPECIAL PROJECTS. IN ONE, SHE COORDINATED MEDIA ATTENDANCE AT PLANNING SESSIONS FOR THE EXECUTION OF OKLAHOMA BOMBER TIMOTHY McVEIGH." (Emphasis added.)

The owners of the Washington Times reportedly are the Korean CIA by and through Rev. Sun Myung Moon who ostensibly launders billions of dollars from tax-dodging and illegal dealings of heavy industry in South Korea. It is more or less an open secret that Americans are seldom reminded of that. [The Elder Bush has been a paid lobbyist and consultant for Rev. Moon's propaganda activities in South America.] By raising the McVeigh-Ms Levy issue, is the Korean CIA trying again to blackmail the American government for an advantage for South Korea? Some years ago, there was a tremendous scandal in Washington. The Korean CIA reportedly bribed or attempted to bribe, key members of the U.S. Congress. Have we all forgotten about this event? [For some years, crusading reporter Robert Parry has written stories for his newsletter exposing the clandestine dealings of Rev. Moon and his gang.]

In a moment of sarcasm, we call him REV. SUN EARTH MOON.

For some months I have been discussing this time-line on various radio talk-shows.

The McVeigh matter was not the only thing Ms Levy did using her position in the key place in the Federal Bureau of Prisons apparatus. She unearthed reportedly details tending to incriminate George Herbert Walker Bush and his sons George W. and Jeb, among others. Ms Levy was inquiring into a great little-mentioned secret. That is, the disappearance reportedly from the U.S. prison system of Carlos Enrique Lehder Rivas, also known as CARLOS LEHDER. With the aid and blessings of the Elder Bush and his sons, and the American CIA, Lehder was the co-founder of the Medellin Dope Cartel in Colombia.

Lehder is the only drug cartel baron to have been extradited to the U.S. where he was put on trial on federal criminal charges, convicted, and originally sentenced to more than a life term.

Some background. In the late 1970s, Jeb Bush was installed as the head of the Venezuela unit of Texas Commerce Bank, a principal owner of which was his father, George Herbert Walker Bush. The bank unit reportedly became part of the money laundering of proceeds from the Colombia Medellin Drug Cartel co-founded by Carlos Lehder as a Bush Family business partner. The Drug Cartel was moreso headquartered in the U.S. than in Colombia. It was part of the whole CIA operation to the southern states of the United States, headquartered, in part, through an airport in western Arkansas, at Mena. The Elder Bush, his sons Jeb and George W., and Ollie North, and Bill Clinton, were all part of the operation. Guns were smuggled by CIA airflights to Central America with side-trips to Colombia to pick up huge shipments of cocaine which supported the Colombia economy moreso than coffee.

The tiny First National Bank of Mena, Arkansas, was purchased by the Riady family, ethnic Chinese tied to Bill Clinton and the Bush Family. The bank reportedly was a transmission point for the huge dope cash flow which went up to Garfield Ridge Trust & Savings Bank, Chicago. The Chicago bank for many years had as a principal stockholder Cong. Dan Rostenkowski. For years a Chairman of the Board of the Chicago bank was a reputed former U.S. Secret Service official, Dan Shannon. Rostenkowski, called Rosty for short, was closely aligned with the Chicago markets, the next transmission point of the dope loot from Rosty's bank. That is, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade, and a sort of basement, step-sister operation called Chicago Board Options Exchange.

Rosty, as the long-time head of the tax-writing committee of Congress, got many "speech fees" and other benefits from the Chicago markets. He in turn pushed through almost private laws, favoring the Chicago markets with tax loopholes on straddles and hedging. So from Rosty's bank in Chicago the huge dope cash flow reportedly was transmitted to the Chicago markets and disguised as soybean and currency trading. Assisting this in all the years was international swindler Marc Rich tied to both the Bush Family and Bill and Hillary Clinton. [Visit our website for stories on Marc Rich.]

Rosty was eventually defrocked and sent to federal prison for defrauding the private bank of the U.S. Congress.

The Medellin Drug Cartel operating through Mena and the Chicago bank and the Chicago markets, has other collaborators. On occasion when the huge shipments of Colombia dope somehow became an issue in Chicago's highly corrupt federal courts, the Drug Cartel had corrupt federal judges to aid them. One such has been Chicago Federal Appeals Judge Iliana D. Rovner [(312)435-5608] Rovner has been part of the Jim Thompson gang of public office criminals. "Big Jim" formerly Illinois Governor has had Rovner as his legal advisor. In recent years he has been the head of the Winston & Strawn Chicago-based law firm octopus, with worldwide offices. Some years ago on our one-hour public access Cable TV Program, "Broadsides", we told how Winston & Strawn reportedly has an inner unit, walled off from the rest of the law firm, engaging not in lawfirm work but in dope cartel matters. Several employees of the firm after the show was aired confirmed the validity of our charges.

As in the historical example of 1876, the year 2000 election was corrupted in the Electoral College phase through FLORIDA. Cocaine money from the Medellin Cartel, with Carlos Lehder and his business partners the Bush family, was the principal corrupting force. Tens of millions of dope dollars were used to work a malign influence reportedly on DEMOCRAT officials in southern Florida, to have them stop the recounting of the ballots which would have put Gore over the top on the Electoral College vote. Gore was done in by corrupt members of his own party. In politics as a reality, can you talk publicly how your party's OWN KEY PEOPLE, by bribery, stabbed you in the back and helped the Bush Family steal the White House after also corrupting part of the U.S. Supreme Court [just like in 1876]?

The dope cartel loot used for these purposes was laundered for them by at least two Chicago-based commodity brokers funneling the dirty money through the Chicago markets. [The disguised accounts are known to some.]

You can see the tie-in to the Bush family. In the late 1970s, about the time just after the Elder Bush was the head of America's secret political police, the CIA; a major espionage agency operative, Barry Seal operated the airplanes to bring in dope from the Medellin Cartel, with the collaboration of the Bush family, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Ollie North. The co-founders of the drug cartel were Carlos Lehder, originally from Germany, and Pablo Escobar and his two brothers. To control matters in later years, the Elder Bush arranged to have Pablo assassinated, disguised as an "arrest" situation. [For related details, see "Killing Pablo" by Mark Bowden, 2001.]

The links of Barry Seal to the Bush family and the Medellin Cartel is evident in the recent book, "Barry & 'the boys'---The CIA, The Mob, and America's Secret History" by Daniel Hopsicker. Carlos Lehder fought extradition to the U.S. For that purpose, he arranged to shoot up the Colombia Supreme Court Building. The Justices there were considering the extradition issue. Assassinated on Lehder's orders were eleven high court justices and many other people. Lehder also reportedly arranged to have assassinated the Minister of Justice in Colombia.

Carlos Lehder was finally arrested and extradited to the U.S. He became a key witness in the dope trial against Panama strongman Manuel Noriega who had been seized by the Elder Bush as President and his Miliary/CIA. In his own trial, Lehder was convicted and sentenced to more than a life term. BUT, because in his testimony against Noriega, Lehder had evaded mentioning that the Bush family were implicated with Noriega in the dope business, Lehders's sentence was reduced to 55 years in prison.

On occasion, the U.S. federal prison system can be as corrupt as the press tells us the justice system is in Mexico. Why is the monopoly press always pointing to corruption ELSEWHERE instead of right here in America? For a price, we are often told, a major criminal in MEXICO can walk right out of prison and disappear. Is the same true in the U.S.?

Chandra Levy, through her sensitive position in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, through their computers and facilities, and human intelligence contacts, reportedly unearthed a dangerous group of details related to the foregoing. For example, that the Bush Family, to protect themselves from jail, arranged for their business partner, Carlos Lehder, to disappear from the U.S. prison system. Is Lehder in Germany, courtesy of German counter-intelligence? Note, a key witness in the Oklahoma bombings, Andreas Strassmeir, part of German counter-intelligence, reportedly played a role in the bombings. He was allowed to be unlawfully in the U.S. and to disppear from the U.S., thanks to the corruption and connivance of the highest level of the U.S. government. And remember, German counter-intelligence in Frankfurt [tied to Strassmeir], had advance knowledge of the team on the way to the U.S. to assassinate Clinton White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., and make some think it was a "suicide". [Visit our website series, "Greenspan Aids and Bribes Bush" Part Four.]

For the American Gestapo, that is, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to say they have no idea what happened to Chandra Levy is simply ridiculous. A deep down FBI secret is that they, early on, suspected she was being used by foreign intelligence agencies, the French CIA and The Mossad, to blackmail the Bush White House. So, the Counter-Intelligence Division of the FBI was tapping her phone. [Hey, does anyone realize that while all this is happening, the Hanssen spy case unfolds. We contend he is actually a CIA official who penetrated FBI counter-intelligence to expose a high-level mole. Hanssen somehow fell between the cracks. Visit our website story on this.]

As of now, there seem to be two possibilities. Either Ms Levy has been snuffed out to protect members of the Bush Family and their partnership with drug cartel baron Carlos Lehder and his disappearance from the Federal Prison System. With the Bush Family members if this opened up widely publicly, being subject to federal criminal prosecution for dope money laundering and treason. OR, Ms Levy is parked somewhere overseas, Paris or Tel Aviv, where her details would suddenly surface starting in some major foreign press outlet. In Europe, top officials mumble that George W. is incompetent on financial matters and foreign affairs. Overseas there has started an attack on the so-called U.S. Dollar. Are the profound secrets of McVeigh and Carlos Lehder in some small part, involved in the attack on the U.S. Dollar which some say started with the French Rothschilds?

More coming as it develops. Stay tuned.
