Re: Bush Crony Caught with Videos That Show Him Having Sex with Children, Feds S
- My first question would be, does Lawrence Scott Ward know through what
layers of obfuscation FBI shared in crime of kidnapping children for its
blackmail videotaping at the Seattle APEC conference?
I guess Tim White would ask a no-win Jon Benet question to replace the
obvious FBI Lindbergh question, along with a personal controversy we
have come to know and love as sock-puppeting. Did Tim White really just
show up when Kris said pedophile? I'm sure Bill Bottoms used to have his
pager hardwired to the name of Barry Seal in deja usenet keyword
monitoring. Then we had Duncan show up to defend Ruppert, or, attack
three of us with unpredicated dead messenger labels, right on time. Here
is Tim White, right on time.
But what I really want to know is when and how did FBI get into the
child kidnapping business. J. Edgar Hoover in a tutu, how far wrong were
