Part 1: Jim Norman sends a memo to the White House, which leaks it to a Starr assistant.

On April 17, 1995, James R. Norman, Senior Editor at Forbes Magazine, sent the following letter to Michael D. McCurry, Press Secretary at the White house:

"Dear Mr. McCurry:

"Forbes Magazine is preparing an article for immediate publication. We would like to offer the White House an opportunity to comment on the following assertions.

"1.) That Vincent W. Foster, while White House Deputy Counsel, maintained a Swiss bank account.

"2.) That funds were paid into that account by a foreign government, specifically the State of Israel.

"3.) That shortly before his death and coincident with the onset of severe and acute depression, Vincent Foster learned he was under investigation by the CIA for espionage.

"4.) That this information was made available to him by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"5.) That while he was White House Deputy Counsel and for many years prior, Vincent Foster had been a behind-the- scenes control person on behalf of the National Security Agency for Systematics, a bank data processing company integrally involved in a highly secret intelligence effort to monitor world bank transactions.

"6.) That Systematics was also involved in 'laundering' funds from covert operations, including drug and arms sales related to activities in and around Mena, Ark.

"7.) That through Systematics' relationship with E-Systems, Vincent Foster may have had access to highly sensitive code, encryption and data security information of strategic importance.

"8.) That both prior to and after his death, documents relating to Systematics were removed from Vincent Foster's office in the White House.

"9.) That the meeting at the Cardozo (Landau) estate on the eastern shore of Maryland on the weekend before Vincent Foster's death was attended by, among others, George Stephanopolous.

"10.) That Hillary Rodham Clinton was also a beneficiary of funds from Foster's Swiss account.

"Thank you very much for your prompt attention to this matter. Please fax your written response before end-of-business Tuesday, April 18, to Forbes at 212-620-2417. If you have questions, please call me at 212-620-2215.

"Respectfully yours,

"James R. Norman, Senior Editor"

The White House did not respond until April 25, 1995. However, on April 20, 1995, a copy of this letter was leaked by White House counsel to Mark H. Tuohey III, an assistant to Kenneth Starr, a prosecutor leading an "independent"; investigation of events related to Whitewater.

Why was the letter forwarded to a Starr assistant?

Did the White House have reason to believe that the death of Vincent Foster was related to Whitewater?

Was the letter forwarded to Mark Tuohey so that he could investigate and comment on the allegations in the letter? Or was the letter leaked to Mark Tuohey by the White House because Tuohey is the White House point man for spin control with respect to any evidence "uncovered" by the investigation?

On April 25, 1995, Michael D. McCurry replied as follows:

"Dear Mr. Norman

"This letter responds to your April 17, 1995 request.

"The allegations contained in your request are outrageous. Publication of these false allegations will discredit Forbes, maliciously tarnish the reputation of Vincent Foster, and cause great pain to Mr. Foster's wife and family.

"Should Forbes insist on publishing these baseless allegations, we insist that the Editor of Forbes have a pre- publication meeting with Jane Sherburne of the White House Counsel's Office and the personal representative of the President and First Lady, David E. Kendall of Williams & Connolly. Ms. Sherburne can be reached at (202) 456-5116 and Mr. Kendall's number is (202) 434-5145.

Part 2: Charles O. Morgan threatens to sue anyone who says Systematics has a relationship with the NSA.

Upon hearing of the alleged connections between Vincent Foster, the NSA, and its subsidiary Systematics--since renamed ALLTEL Information Services (4001 N. Rodney Parham Rd., Little Rock, Arkansas 72212-2496, phone 501/220-5100)-- ALLTEL Corp. (1 Allied Dr., Little Rock, Arkansas 72202, phone 501/661-8000) hired a San Francisco libel attorney named Charles O. Morgan (450 Sansome Street, 13th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94111-3382, phone 415/392-2037) to threaten journalists who made such allegations.

ALLTEL feared the economic consequences of the charges made against its private subsidiary: "Banking and financial institutions are clients of ALLTEL. The irresponsible and false statements . . . have and will cause my client substantial damage" (letter from Charles O. Morgan to Agora Inc., March 28, 1995).

Published news articles in the American Banker and elsewhere show that Systematics' (ALLTEL Information Serivces') customers have included Home Bank, Manufactuers Hanover (now merged with Chemical), Vboss, Southwestern Bell, various overseas military bases, City National, California Federal Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, Guaranty Federal Savings Bank, River Forest Bankcorp, First Busey Corp, Decatur Federal Savings and Loan, Republic National Bank of New York, Anchor Savings Bank, Integra Financial Corp, Banc One, Nations Bank, Citicorp, Vermont National Bank, CNB Bancshares, Liberty Bancorp of Oklahoma City, First Union, First National Bank of Maryland, Amcore Financial, Horizon, Oxford First Corp, Navy Federal Credit Union, People's National Bank, Drung Thai Bank Ltd., Bank of Commerce Berhad, Unisys Corp, Corestates Financial Corp, Novorosiysk Industrial Commercial Ecobank, Royal Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, United Overseas Bank (Singapore), Soneri Bank Ltd (Pakistan), Banco National Ultramarino SA (Macao), BMJ Financial Corp, Security Bank (Arkansas), Hiberia National Bank, Glendale Federal Bank, First Alabama Bancshares, Union Bank of Manila, First Pacific National Bank, Pine Bluff National Bank, Consolidated Bank (Miami), Citibank of Australia, Savings Bank of the Russian Federation, Family Bank, Sabine State Bank & Trust, Central Bank, Chemical Bank, Citibank, Moscow Savings Bank, National Home Mortgage Company, Barclays Bank PLC, Keycorp, Bank IV Kansas, Borel of California, Dime Bancorp, and Bellsouth Cellular Corp.

According to John E. Steuri, Chief Executive Officer, President, and Chairman of the Board of Systematics: "Today, we have banking, financial services, cellular telephone and hospital clients in thirty-six (36) countries outside the United States" (memo from John Steuri to Jim Norman, March 8, 1995, with the subject listed as "Systematics").

Attorney Charles O. Morgan sent threatening letters to, among others, Agora Inc., publisher of Strategic Investment (824 East Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21202-4799), to David Fondiller and Jim Norman of Forbes (62 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10011), and to Bill Hamilton of Inslaw Inc. (1125 15th St. N.W., #300, Washington D.C. 20005-2707, phone 202/828-8600).

In denying various allegations, Charles O. Morgan makes personal claims of knowledge that border on the supernatural. For example, Strategic Investment had written in its March 22, 1995, issue: "Several years ago, investigative reporter Danny Cassalario [sic] spent many months investigating the Inslaw case. He told associates that his probe had revealed an astonishing tale of corruption that he intended to reveal in a story entitled 'The Octopus.' He was days away from completing his story when he was found dead, allegedly a 'suicide.' "

In his March 28, 1995, letter to Agora, Inc., Charles O. Morgan makes the blanket assertion:

"Systematics was not in any way involved in any investigation by Danny Cassalario [sic]" (page 2).

How could Charles O. Morgan possibly know what topics Danny Casolaro, a private journalist, was investigating at the time of Casolaro's death?

Was Charles O. Morgan in close communication with Danny Casolaro at the time of Casolaro's death?

Did Charles O. Morgan examine Casolaro's papers and notes following Casolaro's death, to determine if there were any references to Systematics?

Or did Charles O. Morgan rely on statements by the FBI/Justice Department regarding the topic of Casolaro's investigations? If so, he was relying on a biased source, for according to the "Executive Summary" of a document supplied by Inslaw to each member of the House Judiciary Committee:

The Office of Special Investigations' (OSI's) "publicly- declared mission is to locate and deport Nazi war criminals. The Nazi war criminal program is, however, a front for the Justice Department's own covert intelligence service, according to disclosures recently made to INSLAW by several senior Justice Department career officials. ....

"According to written statements of which INSLAW has obtained copies, another undeclared mission of the Justice Department's covert agents was to insure that investigative journalist Danny Casolaro remained silent about the role of the Justice Department in the INSLAW scandal by murdering him in West Virginia in August 1991. INSLAW has acquired copies of two relevant written statements furnished to a veteran investi- gative journalist by a national security operative of the U.S. Government, several months after Casolaro's death. ..."

Finally, did instead Charles O. Morgan simply rely on Sytematics' assertions that it was not the subject of investigation by Danny Casolaro? If so, why would Systematics make such an assertion? Who would suppose there was a connection between Systematics and the death of Danny Casolaro?

Charles Morgan's denials suggest to me that an important part of the Kenneth Starr investigation into matters related to Whitewater should focus on the relationship between the death of Danny Casolaro and the death of Vincent Foster.

And Kenneth Starr should question Charles O. Morgan with respect to his personal knowledge of the topics of Danny Casolaro's investigation which led to Casolaro's death.

Part 3: Vince Foster oversaw covert money laundering by Systematics.

The sequence of events leading the banking software company Systematics (ALLTEL Information Services) to hire a libel attorney to deny it was operating on behalf of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) began more than a decade ago.

In the early 1980s, the War on (Some) Drugs and the War on (Some) Terrorists led to various U.S. government initiatives to "follow the money."

A Senate subcommittee recommended that the Treasury Department should work with the "Federal Reserve Board to develop a better understanding of the financial significance and use of currency repatriation data as well as information about foreign depositors' currency deposits." (U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, *Crime and Secrecy: The Use of Offshore Banks and Companies*, U.S. Government Printing Office, February 1983.)

Over at the National Security Council, Norman A. Bailey, an economist who understood the electronic flow of money through SWIFT, Fedwire, and CHIPS, urged the involve- ment of the National Security Agency (NSA), the Ft. Meade-based Defense Department agency for signals intelligence and communications security.

Bailey "confirms that within a few years the National Security Agency . . . had begun vacuuming up mountains of data by listening in on bank wire traffic. It became a joint effort of several Western governments with the Israelis playing a leading role, since they were the main target of terrorism" (James R. Norman, "Fostergate").

The NSA proceeded to jack into Fedwire, CHIPS, and Swift. Doing so would be a priority if the aim was to monitor banking transactions. But even while essential, this in itself would be of limited utility without further information. What is the use of monitoring interbank transfers that are DES-encrypted? And even if you break the code, or have the keys, what remains is a money amount transferred from one account number at one bank to another account number at another bank. Who owns the accounts?

One way of finding out was the CIA method: to sneak agents working under cover as computer hardware or software suppliers into computer rooms. Sometimes a lowly computer programmer has more access to banking information than does a senior executive, so this method could enable one to piece together account names and customer information with account numbers. But such an approach is not efficient. Efficient spying implies access at all times.

The evidence indicates that at some point NSA made the logical decision that continual access meant the NSA had to become a major provider of banking software.

James R. Norman, Senior Editor at Forbes--in an article entitled "Fostergate," an article scheduled to appear in the May issue of Forbes, but killed at the last minute by Steve Forbes, apparently through the persuasive urging of Casper Weinberger, the former Defense Secretary who is Publisher Emeritus at Forbes--makes specific allegations about several companies which may have become part of such an NSA operation, and about the role of Vincent Foster:

"Forbes' sources say that since at least the late 1970s, Foster had been a silent, behind-the-scenes overseer on behalf of the NSA for a small Little Rock, Ark., bank data processing company. Its name was Systematics Inc., launched in 1967 [ 1968? ] and funded and controlled for most of its life by Arkansas billionaire Jackson Stephens, a 1946 Naval Academy graduate. Foster was one of Stephens' trusted deal- makers at the Rose Law Firm, where he was partner with Hillary Rodham Clinton, Webster Hubbell and William Kennedy (whose father was a Systematics director). Hubbell also played an overseer role at Systematics for the NSA for some years according to intelligence sources.

"Systematics has had close ties to the NSA and CIA ever since its founding, sources say, as a money-shuffler for covert operations. It is no secret that there were billions of dollars moving around in 'black' accounts--from buying and selling arms to the Contras, Iran, Iraq, Angola and other countries to paying CIA operatives and laundering money from clandestine CIA drug dealing. Having taken over the complete computer rooms in scores of small U.S. banks as an 'outsource' supplier of data processing, Systematics was in a unique position to manage that covert money flow. Sources say the money was moved at the end of every day disguised as a routine bank-to-bank balancing transaction.... ....

"Systematics' money-laundering role for the intelligence community might help explain why Jackson Stephens tried to take over Washington-based Financial General Bankshares in 1978 on behalf of Arab backers of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. BCCI's links to global corruption and intelligence operations has been well documented, though many mysteries remain.

"According to a lawsuit filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Stephens insisted on having then-tiny Systematics brought in to take over all the bank's data processing. Representing Systematics in that 1978 SEC case: Hillary Rodham Clinton and Webster Hubbell. Stephens was blocked in that takeover. But FGB, later renamed First American, ultimately fell under the domination of BCCI through Robert Altman and former Defense Sec. Clark Clifford. According to a technician who worked at First American in Atlanta, Systematics became a key computer contractor there anyway.

"In the 1980s Systematics' business boomed. When it first sold stock to the public in 1983, revenues were $64 million. That had risen to $230 million by the time Stephens arranged Systematics' sale to Alltel Corp., a telephone holding company which then moved its headquarters to Little Rock. Last year Systematics sales hit $861 million--a third of Alltel's total. Stephens now owns more than 8% of Alltel and wields significant influence over the company. ....

"Another curious company is Arkansas Systems, founded in 1974 by Systematics employee and former U.S. Army 'analyst' John Chamberlain. Located just down the road from Systematics, Arkansas Systems specializes in computer systems for foreign wire transfer centers and central banks. Among its clients, Russia and China, according to Arkansas Systems president James K. Hendren, a physicist formerly involved with the Safeguard anti-missile system. Arkansas Systems was one of the first companies to receive funding from the Arkansas Development Finance Authority, an agency created by then Gov. Bill Clinton that is now coming under congressional scrutiny.

"What does Alltel have to say about all this? 'I've never heard anything so asinine in all my life,' steams Joe T. Ford, Alltel's chairman and the father of Jack Stephens' chief administrative aide."

Charles O. Morgan, on the other hand, claims omniscience with respect to what did not happen with respect to Systematics.

Re: Allegations Regarding Vince Foster, the NSA, and Banking

Part 4: Hillary Clinton and Web Hubbell represented Systematics during the BCCI takeover of First American.

In an April 5, 1995, letter to Michael Geltner (10 E Street, S.E., Washington, D.C. 20003)--an attorney for Agora, Inc.-- Charles O. Morgan asserts;

"6. Webster Hubbell never served as an attorney or in any other capacity for ALLTEL Corporation, or for any of its operations or subsidiaries, other than a single instance in 1983, when Systematics, Inc., engaged Mr. Hubbell to pursue a competitor that was using Systematics, Inc.'s propriety software without authorization; ..."

In his admirable zeal to defend his client Systematics, Mr. Charles O. Morgan apparently forgot to do any research regarding the allegations he was denying. For his denial is mistaken. Web Hubbell (along with Hillary Rodham Clinton) represented Systematics in a 1978 lawsuit.

In 1978 Jackson Stephens tried to take over Financial General Bankshares (FGB) in Washington, D.C. (FGB was later acquired by BCCI, renamed First American, and run by Robert Altman and Clark Clifford. Robert Altman was later acquitted of misleading regulators, and the case against Clifford was dropped due to his age and infirmity.) In the Stephens' takeover attempt, FGB sued--among others--Systematics. Briefs for Systematics were submitted by C.J. Giroir, Web Hubbell, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The essential details may be found in the article "Who is Jack Ryan?" (Wall Street Journal, Monday, August 1, 1994):

"Attorneys for Mr. Clifford and Mr. Altman included independent counsel Robert Fiske and Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, as well as Robert Bennett, president Clinton's attorney in the Paula Corbin Jones case. And, of course, Arkansas investment banking giant Stephens Inc., which says all connections with the BCCI front men ended in 1978, does acknowledge it handled their initial brokerage for the purchase.

"Indeed, in the early takeover maneuvers Financial General Bankshares, First American's predecessor company, brought a 1978 lawsuit naming 'Bert Lance, Bank of Credit & Commerce International, Agha Hasan Abedhi, Eugene J. Metzger, Jackson Stephens, Stephens Inc., Systematics Inc. and John Does numbers 1 through 25.' The suit was ultimately settled, but intriguingly, briefs for Systematics, a Stephens property, were submitted by a trio of lawyers including C.J. Giroir and Webster L. Hubbell and signed by Hillary Rodham."

First American was subsequently used by the CIA to manage and launder money for covert operations. As noted in a U.S. Senate report:

"After the CIA knew that BCCI was as an institution a fundamentally corrupt criminal enterprise, it continued to use both BCCI and First American, BCCI's secretly held U.S. subsidiary, for CIA operations. ...

"Kamal Adham, who was the CIA's principal liason for the entire Middle East from the mid-1960s through 1979, was the lead frontman for BCCI in its takeover of First American, was an important nominee shareholder for BCCI, and remains one of the key players in the entire BCCI affair." (Senator John Kerry and Senator Hank Brown, *The BCCI Affair: a Report to the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate*, GPO, December 1992.)

The Arkansas connection to CIA covert operations and First American may help explain why "independent" counsel Robert Fiske failed to find much evidence of wrong-doing in his investigation into Whitewater.

And perhaps it also helps explain why Charles O. Morgan does such sloppy research, for as we have seen, Web Hubbell represented his client Systematics Inc. five years prior to the "single instance in 1983" that Charles O. Morgan claims. Does Charles O. Morgan have a blind spot where intelligence activities are concerned?

Surely he has thought about the issue, for in his April 5, 1995, letter to Michael Geltner, Morgan sweepingly asserts:

"4. None of ALLTEL's operations or subsidiaries has ever had any connection in any capacity with the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, or any other similar agency in the United States Government; ..."

How can Charles O. Morgan possibly know this about his client, given that he doesn't even know about that Systematics Inc. was a defendent in a lawsuit brought by Financial General Bankshares, or that Systematics was involved in a takeover attempt of FGB/First American even prior to BCCI's? The BCCI affair was hardly a minor political story.

So what does Charles O. Morgan deny about Vincent Foster?

James R. Norman, Senior Editor at Forbes, writes:

"Vince Foster a spy? Actually, it is much worse than that, if the CIA's suspicions are confirmed by the ongoing foreign counterintelligence probe. He would have been an invaluable double agent with potential access to not only high level political information, but also to sensitive code, encryption and data transmission secrets--the stuff by which modern war is won or lost. That is because for many years, according to nine separate current and former U.S. law enforcement or intelligence officials, Foster had been a behind-the-scenes manager of a key support company in one of the biggest, most secretive spy efforts on record: the silent surveillance of banking transactions both here and abroad." (James R. Norman, Fostergate.)

Part 5: Philosophical musings on the meaning of this investigation.

But before we continue with the litany of Charles O. Morgan's denials, it is time for intermission, for soda and popcorn, for stretching cramped legs. The following screen fodder is a meditation, an illumination, and none of it is factual.


This is not a story about who actually pulled the trigger on Vince Foster. For in any case, Vince Foster is dead.

This is not a story about any specific company, such as the allegations against Systematics, for if no such company existed, then the NSA would create one. Or several.

It is not a story about money-laundering in Mena, Arkansas, because money-laundering doesn't alarm me. Anyone who has read my essay "The End of Ordinary Money" (currently in two parts) knows that I think the money-laundering laws are an odious intrusion into financial privacy, and should be abolished.

It is not a story about Charles O. Morgan. But the accuracy of Morgan's assertions is relevant to understanding what has happened and is happening. Even though Morgan is a fine lawyer and a man of impeccable character, his research mistakes could lead some to erroneously conclude that he is a fool or a paid liar.

This is not a story about any particular foreign power: whether Russia, China, France, Germany, Israel, or the United Kingdom. But any country that has shit on the carpet deserves to have its nose rubbed in the evidence. There are no privileged foreign powers.

This is not an attack on the NSA monitoring of foreign missile and nuclear programs. The acquistion of information for self-protection is a fundamental human right, and those who don't exercise this right often end up dead. But I just want to know what the fuck NSA's doing in my checking account.

This is not a story about Cap Weinberger, BUT HOW AND WHY DID HE GET JIM NORMAN'S STORY KILLED?

This is a story about the uses of propaganda, whereby appeals to "terrorism," "money-laundering," "child pornography," and other handy bugaboos are cited by the Overlords of the Surveillance State as an excuse to send jack-booted thugs to "protect us," to monitor our every action to make sure we toe the current political line, and to create vast financial data bases to ensure we get taxed to pay for all of the above.

This is a story about hypocrisy, whereby the friends of Bill Clinton and George Bush may launder millions of dollars at will, but the hoi polloi are prosecuted for "structuring" two $7500 cash payments.

It is a story about a corrupt and evil judiciary system that has filled 60 percent of prison space with minor drug offenders, with a resultant overcrowding causing early release of murders, rapists, and other violent criminals in order to make more room for marijuana smokers.

It is a story about a "war on drugs" conducted to increase monopoly profit margins, to provide a cash flow for widespread political payoffs, and to provide continuing employment for psychotic law enforcement officials.

This is a story about a political equation which says "investigative body" = cover-up commission whereby one conducts a thorough investigation into the evidence or witnesses that have been left laying around, so that the evidence can be burned, and the witnesses silenced or killed.

This is a story about the media participation in this process, whereby promoted stories are referred to as "well-researched and well documented" while suppressed stories are labelled "conspiracy theories." In a recent extreme case, a major news organization elicited witnesses and video-taped them for "an expose on Mena," then later killed the story. Meanwhile, copies of the video tapes were turned over to goons who subsequently killed some of the same witnesses.

This is a horror story that made me toss and turn at night, until I recalled the words of my friend Jack Wheeler, who told me: "We created a doctrine to do in the Soviet empire. And it worked. It's now time to do in the Washington empire." And reflecting on these words, I fell peacefully asleep. And I had a dream.

Part 6: The curious tentacles (and strange denials) of Systematics.

In February 1995, having heard some of the malicious rumors regarding Systematics (ALLTEL Information Services), I posted on the Internet a bibliography of news articles regarding Systematics, so that researchers could see for themselves that Systematics was just another hard-working software company that provided banking software.

In that post I mentioned some of the rumors and stated:

"Of course these allegations are FALSE. However, for those who may [be] interested in doing their own private research on SYSTEMATICS, and verifying for themselves the utter FALSEHOOD of these malicious lies, I have compiled a brief bibliography on the company."

But now the heavy-handed tactics of ALLTEL Information Services (formerly Systematics) have made me reconsider. Could it be that at least some of the rumors are true?

Why did ALLTEL Information Services, based in Little Rock, Arkansas, hire a lawyer way over in San Francisco to threaten journalists who chose to investigate these rumors? Charles O. Morgan claims that "Banking and financial institutions are clients of ALLTEL. The irresponsible and false statements . . . have and will cause my client substantial damage."

Well, I assert that I know much more about the banking environment than does Charles O. Morgan. And I assert that what Charles O. Morgan claims is nonsense.

The banking environment is a communication-based environment, where rumors about companies spread quickly and die quickly. Banking people are up to their necks in rumors. Given the environment, they have to take rumors with a grain of salt until they have hopped on the phone and spoken with six colleagues who can help them evaluate the purported facts.

ALLTEL Information Services has nothing to fear from a bunch of pissant rumors that are false. But if ALLTEL Information Services has nothing to fear, then WHY HAVE THEY REPORTEDLY HIRED A NEW YORK-BASED PRIVATE INVESTIGATIVE FIRM CALLED PROUST AND KILLMAN TO MONITOR THEIR CRITICS?


Of course, such an archive probably doesn't exist. But ALLTEL Information Services can't be too sure of this.

As for myself, I personally could care less what it is that ALLTEL Information Services didn't do. I just want them to stop not doing it.

The Systematics bibliography is repeated below. But so that researchers don't waste their time, I want to relay some helpful information provided by John Steuri. John Steuri is CEO of ALLTEL Information Services (formerly Systematics), and--unlike Charles O. Morgan way over in San Francisco--is right there in Little Rock, where he can keep an eye on what's going on. In his memo to Jim Norman, dated March 16, 1995, titled "Systematics", Mr. Steuri makes the following statements:

"1. Hillary Clinton was never on ALLTEL's or Systematics Boards of Directors.

"2. Beryl Anthony was never on ALLTEL's or Systematics' Boards of Directors. Further, if Mr. Anthony was somehow related by marriage or otherwise to Mr. Vincent Foster, I was not aware of it. As I told you, I never met Mr. Foster. I was introduced to Mr. Anthony once on a trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with federal bank regulatory agencies.

"3. Until your inquiry and meeting with Joe Ford and me on March 1, 1995, we had never heard of Boston Systematics and/or Systematics Ltd. and Systematics Technology in Israel. We found them in public Dun and Bradstreet data-bases after you contacted us. We don't know who they are or what they do or who they may associate with, and we don't know their principals who are listed in D&B or others whose names you've provided me. Simply put, we have no present or past relationship with or any knowledge of these organizations.

"4. We have no present or prior relationship whatsoever with any company called E-Systems.

"5. We do not do any 'private bank-to-bank transfers' of funds or operate or provide any software for wire transfers. Our clients do transfer normal debit/credit transactions via the Fed ACH system or via the other networks like SWIFT, etc., which I listed some of in my fax to you of March 8, 1995.

"6. If Webster Hubbell has called Systematics at least 'twice' since being in Washington to obtain 'data on foreign companies', I am unaware of any such inquiries, and I have not learned of anyone here who is aware of or took any such calls.

"7. If Vincent Foster had 'several Systematics documents in his files', we are totally unaware of any such documents. Very likely, if they in fact exist, they may somehow be related to one of the more than fifty (50) other companies who use the name 'Systematics' who have absolutely no relationship whatsoever to our Company. I provided you with a list of these companies we found in public databases since you contacted us on March 1, 1995.

"8. I don't know anything about companies named Atlantic Research or Mitek?(sp). We know of Computer Sciences as we have on occasion competed with them for bank outsourcing projects.

"9. If Systematics is or was in line for any big (or small) healthcare contracts with the U.S. government as part of healthcare reform, we are totally unaware of it. We were never asked to participate in or provide input to any of the Clinton Administration's healthcare task forces, study groups, hearings, etc. Your comments and questions on that front come as a total surprise to us.

"10. We do not request or use the U.S. government or any officials of same to solicit or assist us in obtaining favorable consideration of any domestic or foreign contracts for our banking software (or bank processing services in the U.S.). If we are required by law to obtain approvals or export licenses to do business in certain countries, we will, of course, seek to obtain same from the appropriate federal agency.

"11. There is absolutely no correlation or connection whatsoever between any domestic or foreign business or contracts we've signed and the election of the current Administration in Washington or any prior Administrations."

Thanks, Mr. Steuri, for the helpful information.

I am a little confused about point #3, however. Is this the same Boston Systematics which Jim Norman, Senior Editor at Forbes, alleges is "headed by former CIA officer Harry C. Wechsler, which controls two Israeli companies that also use the name Systematics" and from which "Inslaw claims it got two inquiries in 1987 from Wechsler's Israeli company seeking marketing data on PROMIS"?

Is this the same Harry Wechsler, whose daughter is also a Senior Editor at Forbes?

Well, this is all too confusing for me. I think I'll take a break. I think I'll take my Mellon Bank credit card and treat myself to a nice dinner.

Re: Allegations Regarding Vince Foster, the NSA, and Banking

Postby admin » Mon Apr 25, 2016 5:38 am

Part 7: Virtual realities in the media and banking. Israel as a virtual nuclear power.

It has come time to talk of Vince Foster and virtual realities.

1. One type of virtual reality immersion takes place every evening with respect to network news. One sits in a familiar chair, and watches familiar faces on familiar channels telling soothing or alarming things about other parts of the world--other realities--of which the viewer has no experience, all of it demonstrated by reality-simulating sound bites and video clips.

The virtual reality construction is good if the story sounds plausible. That is, after all, the job of a TV reporter: to tell a plausible story and to entertain our eyes by looking good while telling it.

The pulp magazine reporter, on the other hand, must tell a plausible story and keep it lurid enough to grab our imagination. Take the allegedly important question of "child porn on the Internet," recently paraded forth by Time magazine. To the computer-impaired, pedophilia might serve as a plausible explanation why anyone would sit for hours in front of a computer screen. Never mind that the neighborhood Internet-user says differently: you can't take the word of a pedophile can you?

The Internet-user, on the other hand, may believe that rock videos are a more reliable guide to reality than Time magazine. And even if he were actually interested in porn, he might find life easier by going to the local video store where a single video tape could store as much graphical inforation as could be stored on 2000 digital compact disks.

2. Another type of virtual reality is found in the banking world. Money is data stored in a computer. This money is "transferred" place to place by changing the ownership labels associated with the data. Once the computer receives the proper transfer authorization codes, the money can be "launched" from one bank to another, from one account to another. All that is necessary is that one properly emulate the reality that is important to the bank computer.

If you include all the right digital indicators that make it plausible to the computer that you are the authorized transfer person for, say, the account owned by C. Jefferson, the computer will believe you. It won't care about non-virtual reality--what C. Jefferson looks like, or what her tastes in clothes are-- nor will the computer have metaphysical doubts to cause it to hesitate in its actions before sending the money on its way. "You" are nothing more than a preselected set of codes.

In the version of Jim Norman's article Fostergate published in Media Bypass (August 1995), it is stated:

"For months, a small cadre of CIA computer hackers known as the Fifth Column, armed with a Cray supercomputer, had been monitoring Foster's Swiss account. . . . Foster was just one of the first of scores of high level U.S. political figures to thus have their secret Swiss accounts looted of illicit funds . . . . Over the past two years . . . more than $2 billion has been swept out of offshore bank accounts belonging to figures connected to the U.S. government with nary a peep from the victims or their banks."

Where did the money in the accounts come from? Jim Norman doesn't say. I assert that some of this loot is defense and arms dealing payola; some of it is drug dealing profits or payola; and some of it is payola from the floating fortune left by a forgotten oil man-- whose money moves from bank to bank in a merry-go-round to keep its location hidden from the potential heirs.

And some of the loot was paid in an attempt to allow one nation to become a VIRTUAL NUCLEAR POWER.

3. Missile launches take place in a virtual reality. Given the proper launch code, the missile will attempt to go to its programmed destination without further theological debate.

A country possessing the launch codes and also targeting information for another country's nuclear missiles could become a virtual nuclear power. (The targeting information would be as important as the launch codes. For before you launched a missile, you would first want to know where it is going. After all, it could be aimed at you.) Getting your nuclear arms this ways would have obvious economic advantages: someone else would foot the military bill.

Jim Norman states in Fostergate:

"According to a heavily-redacted New Mexico FBI counter- intelligence report, Maxwell was apparently allowed to sell two copies of PROMIS back to the U.S. weapons labs at Sandia and Los Alamos, for what Inslaw claims was a hugely inflated price of $37 million. That would have allowed Pollard, if he was using the rigged program, to obtain U.S. missile targeting data long before Israel had its own satellite capability, thus making it a real nuclear threat to the Soviet Union."

Well, yes, it could make Israel a real threat to the Soviet Union. But not from Israel's own puny missile program. Rather, Israel could be a threat to the Soviet Union because it would be able to launch our (U.S.) missiles at the Soviet Union. Being a virtual nuclear power would mean not having to say you are sorry. If a U.S. missile were launched at Russia, the defense system of Russia would, in its virtual view of the world, see the missile as coming from the U.S. It would launch a retaliatory strike against the U.S., because in its reality only the U.S. could be responsible. It wouldn't be programmed to recognize "Missile from U.S. not U.S.-intended action."

Being a virtual nuclear power means you could blackmail people in both directions: you could blackmail the targeted city or area. More importantly, you could blackmail the U.S. If the U.S. doesn't go along with your demands, why, you could involve it in a nuclear war in which you would be a spectator, not a participant. The U.S. would know it has more to lose than you do, so it would give in to your demands.

Vince Foster's NSA connections wouldn't give him access to such launch codes and targeting data. Not even with the help of Jonathan Pollard. It would take the cooperation of a small circle of friends--friends with Defense and Intelligence connections. People with access. People with authority.

Would any of the U.S.'s own Defense Department or Intelligence personnel in the 1980s or the 1990s, people other than Jonathan Pollard, have been involved in such a transfer of information to a foreign power--whether to Israel or to anyone else?

Surely not anyone connected to the account numbers KPFBMMBODB or KPFBMMBODE held at the Union Bank of Switzerland? Please, say it ain't so.

For if they were, the U.S. may now be facing its greatest National Security threat since the Cuban Missile Crisis. And that's why everyone has an interest in covering up the various threads connected to the death of Vince Foster. Some are scurrying around, hoping no one will realize how bad things are before the mess can be cleaned up. Others are scurrying around, just covering their asses. It's showdown time, with no space for killing all the remaining witnesses or burying all the remaining evidence. It's showdown time, and the money people thought they had for ammo is missing from their Swiss accounts.

The levels of disinformation have already been prepared. The first level says Vince Foster was just a political flack who committed suicide. The next one says, yeah, he was into some nasty stuff like money laundering, but had no intelligence connections. The next one beyond that allows him to work for the NSA, but not for long or in a very important position. The next one allows Foster to sell some nuclear secrets to Israel, but that was just to accelerate their own nuclear program, as a bulwark against the Soviet Union. And anyway, Foster acted alone. And so on, spin control all the way. Foster, being dead, will have nothing to say about his many potential roles.

But underneath all this the Powers That Be have begun to comprehend that some of their own have threatened their very survival. And the Powers That Be are going to clean house with a vengeance.

Part 8: Caspar Weinberger's Swiss account. Israel's nuclear spying.

Did our former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, like Vince Foster, have a Swiss Bank account? Does he still? Is his name on account number KPFBMMBODE at the Union Bank of Switzerland? Was that why Caspar Weinberger, Publisher Emeritus at Forbes, became so gung-ho to get Jim Norman's article Fostergate killed?

What is the relationship between Caspar Weinberger and Vince Foster?

What does Ron Perelman, an equity owner of Forbes and Revlon, have to say about all this? (Is there lipstick all over the Pentagon?)

Don't get me wrong. I think the Swiss banking system is the finest in the world, and we should ALL have Swiss banking accounts. We should ALL have the right to hide our assets from prying eyes. Just as long, of course, as those assets were fairly earned--and they don't represent payola from public defense projects. Or proceeds from the sale of bona fide national security secrets. Or payola to keep the knowledge of such sales secret.

Were Caspar Weinberger's Swiss assets simply savings from his paycheck and profits from his investments?

Are U.S. nuclear secrets for open sale on the world market from one of our alleged "allies"?

Bobby Ray Inman graduated from the Naval War College in 1972, became Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence of the Pacific Fleet in 1973, Director of Naval Intelligence in 1974, Vice Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1976, Director of the National Security Agency in 1977, and Deputy Director of Central Intelligence under Ronald Reagan in 1981. He left that post in March 1982. In December 1993 he was nominated by Bill Clinton to be Secretary of Defense. ("Bibliography of Bobby Ray Inman," Office of the Press Secretary, The White House, December 16, 1993.)

"After Admiral Inman's announcement that he would not serve as Clinton's Defense Secretary, the Hebrew press devoted a fair amount of space to the implications of that affair for Israel. . . . Most important among these writings were the articles by Amir Oren (Davar, January 28) and Yoav Karni, published the same day in the newly founded weekly Shishi. . . . Oren's article in particular stressed the incompatibility between Inman's past policy recommendations and Israeli political aims, especially in regard to nuclear developments. Both authors, who usually are mildly critical of Israel's policies but never of its nuclear build-up, were emphatic in their hostility toward Inman. Furthermore, Oren discussed in depth Pollard and Israeli espionage in the U.S. as having something to do with Israeli objections to Inman as a person and to his policy recommendations." (Israel Shahak, "Involvement of the pro-Israel lobby in the Inman affair," Report No. 133, February 11, 1994.)

Shahak goes on to note that: "When Yoel Markus (Haartez, December 31, 1993) spoke of the recent 'courtship' of Israel by various states, he concluded that 'this courtship has nothing to do with the peace process . . . When the U.S. is being ruled by an administration as favorably disposed to Israel as the present one, conviction spreads in every state that the only way to America's purse leads via Israel.' "

A chief objection to Inman was he might implement U.S. inspections of the Israeli nuclear production process at Dimona:

"Oren mentions a number of reasons why Israel loathed and feared Inman. But as the main of those reasons Oren projects the Israeli expectation that, if appointed the U.S. Defense Secretary, Inman would be able to put into effect independent American inspections of Israeli nuclear armaments and their production process in Dimona. It needs to be recalled that by virtue of a secret agreement with the U.S. reached during the first year of John F. Kennedy's term of office as president, the U.S. to this day receives only such information about Israeli nuclear power as Israel is pleased to convey. After the Bay of Pigs fiasco Kennedy needed the support of the 'Jewish lobby'. In order to get it, he okayed this curious agreement." (Israel Shahak)

Shahak cites evidence that much of Israel nuclear capability had been acquired through espionage directed against the U.S. (The following reference to "Critical Mass" is to a book called Critical Mass by William E. Burrows and Robert Windrem.)

"Yediot Ahronot's correspondents Tzadok Yehezkeli and Danny Sadeh (January 30), write in their review of the book "Critical Mass" . . . that 'Israel solicits money from wealthy Jews from all over the world for financing its nuclear weaponry programs. This fundraising drive is directed by a committee comprised of 30 Jewish millionaires'. . . . .

"[Tzadok Yehezkeli and Danny Sadeh] write that 'Israel is ever ready to launch its nuclear missiles on some 60 to 80 targets. Those targets include the sites in the Gulf, the capitals of all Arab states, some nuclear bases on the territory of the former USSR and some sites in Pakistan'. (I am convinced this is accurate.) It means that Israel must very much want to obtain the U.S. satellite information about the entire targeted area, a not so negligible part of the earth's surface. The existence of a so formidable nuclear power in Israel's hands can not be convincingly attributed to its own Research and Development efforts nor even to its role as a tool of American policies. On the contrary, a nuclear power of that magnitude must be presumed to run counter to U.S. imperial interests. The only plausible explanation is that Israel has acquired its nuclear power with at least some help of its 'Jewish friends' in the U.S. Yehezkeli's and Sadeh's information about 'the nuclear bases on the territory of the former USSR' fits well with what Geoffrey Aronson, relying on State Department sources, reveals about the Pollard affair ("The Christian Science Monitor", January 27). He writes that according to 'unanimous response' from these sources, what Pollard has been always said to have betrayed, were 'this country's most important secrets', namely the 'information relating to U.S. targeting of Soviet nuclear and military installations and the capabilities and defenses of these sites'. This seems to accord with Israel's global aspirations based on its nuclear power. Aronson also quotes his sources to the effect that much of intelligence passed on by Pollard 'was unusable to the Israelis except as bargaining chips and leverage against the United States and other countries' interests'. In view of this fact Aronson conjectures that Pollard's intelligence was used by Israel for deals with Moscow consisting of 'trading nuclear secrets for Soviet Jews'." (Israel Shahak)

Shahak goes on to quote Oren with respect to Jonathan Pollard: ". . . 'a Navy Intelligence employee, Jonathan Pollard, was caught red-handed while passing on to Israel precisely this kind of information which Inman had decided to withhold from Israel. . . . And interpreted likewise as coincidental were the links connecting Rafi Eitan, then the chief of the 'Office for Scientific Contacts' (LEKEM [also transliterated as LAKAM]), who employed Pollard, with the [Israeli] Defense minister, Ariel Sharon, who had appointed Eitan and who rushed to Washington in order to complain against Inman and his orders.'.... Eitan ran Pollard with the explicit approval of four Defense ministers and Prime Ministers, concretely Arens, Rabin, Shamir and Peres.'"

Rafi Eitan's reward for the Pollard affair? "After helping sell Iraqi oil all over the world, he now oversees the Israeli trade with Cuba" (Shahak).

Let me ask again: Are U.S. nuclear secrets for open sale on the world market from one of our alleged "allies"?

Are U.S. nuclear secrets for open sale by the Defense Department personnel who allegedly guard them?

Why did Mike McCurry, Press Secretary on the White House, spent time trying to convince Sarah McClendon, veteran White House journalist, that Jim Norman is a fruitcake?

If Jim Norman is a liar or a fruit cake, why did an editor at Insight magazine receive a visit from the Pentagon? Why was Jim Norman's in-progress interview with Jack Christie on the USA Radio Network today (July 23, 1995) interrupted for reasons of "national security"? If lying is a national security problem, what is Bill Clinton doing in the White House?

Why is it that the sale of bona fide national security secrets is tolerated, even rewarded with lucrative payments to Swiss accounts, while journalistic reports about THE LOOTING AND SALE OF U.S. NUCLEAR SECRETS are quashed as "national security"? Is the Pentagon run by lunatics and thieves?

Part 9: Cover-up by House Banking Committee investigators.

July 23, 1995

Gregory Wierzynski
Assistant Staff Director
U.S. House of Representatives
Committee on Banking and Financial Services
2129 Rayburn Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Mr. Wierzynski:

Thank you for email letter, a copy of which is attached.

I am not sure why you think my quoting selections from Mr. Jim Norman necessarily implies endorsement or acceptance of them on my part. I have, of course, quoted many, many selections from Mr. Norman, so perhaps you could be more specific with respect to the ones you are concerned about.

Perhaps I could be of assistance to your inquiries among the spooks, if only you could describe to me which points you have investigated, and how you have investigated them. I certainly wouldn't want to promote anything that, as you say, "flied in the face of facts."

On the other hand, I am greatly concerned about the use by Alltel Information Services (formerly Systematics) of a libel attorney, Charles O. Morgan, in an attempt to intimidate journalists and destroy the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

And I am also gravely concerned about the possible leak of U.S. codes and nuclear secrets to a foreign power, which is an issue of real national security concern to the U.S. (Of course you and I both know that "national security" is often used to hide the truth about sell-outs of national security from the American people, by clamping a lid on the discussion or reporting of things that are common knowledge among U.S. military and security agencies, and even common knowledge to the general public of the foreign power to which these secrets have been compromised.)

Before reading my email, and your letter, I sent you a copy of "Part VIII: Allegations Regarding Vince Foster, the NSA, and Banking Transactions Spying". There you will see from the quotes that the theft of U.S. nuclear secrets by Israel is openly discussed in Israeli newspapers, so I am sure that this is not one of the "off-the-wall" issues to which you are referring. (With respect to that issue, I suggest that you do some investigation in Tel Aviv.)

With respect to money laundering I am not concerned, for reasons I have indicated in my essay "The End of Ordinary of Money", Parts I and II, a copy of which I previously provided the Committee. The money-laundering laws ought to be abolished, but in the meantime I do find the selective enforcement of these laws troubling.

With respect to "Chuck in Kentucky", I know more than one Chuck in Kentucky, so perhaps you could be more specific which Chuck you refer to. What stories did he tell you, and how is it that they didn't pan out?

Since you have already spoken to both Jim and Chuck, I am taking the liberty of sending a copy of this letter (and your letter) to Jim Norman, and to one possible Chuck you may be referring to, so that perhaps they can explain to me their failing to satisfy you as to the accuracy of their information.

Now, Mr. Wierzynski, I would like to bring up an issue about your Committee's behavior that is troubling me. I am sure that there is an innocent explanation that I am missing. You will recall the meeting that I had with you and Mr. Stephen Ganis, the Counsel to the Committee, at the Four Seasons in Georgetown on Monday, June 12, 1995. Two days previously I had been playing volleyball in the Mall with Dana Rohrbacher and Jack Wheeler and some others, and I had pulled most of the muscles in my right ankle. So I asked everyone I was meeting to come over to the hotel, and you and Mr. Ganis graciously consented. We met in the Four Seasons lounge, where I was the only person not wearing shoes.

You told me that, more than money laundering in Mena, Arkansas, you were interested as to whether there were any documents connecting Vince Foster to Systematics, or whether I knew the name of any Systematics programmers that may have worked to modify the PROMIS software to spy on banking transactions. I told you I couldn't recall seeing any such documents, and that I had come across the name of one programmer, but I had subsequently forgotten it. It was a pleasant meeting, so to be helpful I gave you a copy of Jim Norman's Fostergate that had been spiked from Forbes. "Why would Steve Forbes kill the article?" you asked. I said I didn't know, but that--since you appeared to know Steve Forbes--you should call him yourself.

Now, much to my surprise, I find that the following happened: Just as Media Bypass was about to run Jim Norman's article Fostergate, they received a letter from Charles O. Morgan, indicating grave consequences if they were so foolish as to print the article. Mr. Morgan claimed to know what was in the article, because, he said, he had received a copy from Mr. Stephen Ganis of your Committee!

I am bothered by the fact that while you alleged to me you were investigating Systematics that at the same time you are passing along information to Systematics. I am sure there is an innocent explanation. But consider this: what if I had given you Foster-related documents and the names of Systematics programmers? Would these have been passed along to Mr. Morgan also? As you know, a number of people connected to this whole business have died violent deaths in Arkansas. (Of course, I understand some of them had already been paid off to keep their mouths shut, and didn't, and so--under any standard of morality--deserved what they got.)

Well, things are never what they appear, so perhaps you can clear things up for me. Please pass along my concern to Mr. Ganis, and tell him I will be glad to sit down with him and have a drink, or share a line, and have a frank discussion about this issue. (I have nothing against the use of any drug, if used in moderation, and in the appropriate context.)

Orlin --

We're reading your stuff with interest. Thank you for including me in your
list of recipients; I pass the material on to my boss and my colleagues on
the Committee.

I am somewhat surprised, however, that you accept the Norman piece without raising any questions about its sources. We've talked to Jim and tried to check out the sources he thought he could share with us. We have also done a fair amount of investigating on our own using the resources available to us--by which I mean officials inquiries to the spooks. So far we draw a complete blank. Worse, the preponderance of the evidence suggests that Jim's piece is pretty much off-the-wall. Worse still, it appears to fly in the face not just of facts, but simple logic as well.

I haven't, by any means, given up on this subject, but pursuing a trail grown cold is difficult to justify when you're paid by the taxpayer.

Do you have suggestions on how we could verify some of the elements in the Norman story? I've talked to Chuck in Kentucky and am still in touch with him. But his stories have not panned out, even partially. I would be most interested in your ideas.

Best regards.
