This true story of a Special Forces officer in Vietnam in the mid-sixties will acquaint you with the unique nature of Special Operations Forces and how covert operations are developed and often masked to permit — even sponsor — assassination, outright purposeful killing of innocents, illegal use of force and bizzare methods in combat operations.

Challenge for the Media – Truth When it Hurts (cont.)

28 July 2003
Is the Media Complicit in Stonewalling about portable Atomic Weapons??
If they are not complicit – Why have none come forward?

It is yet a fact: I have attempted to excite the interest of Governor Tom Ridge, John Scanlon, Congressman Boehlert, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX TV, NY Times, Time Magazine, The American Enterprise Magazine and the Syracuse Herald-American, but have thus far received not so much as an acknowledgment of receipt of the information I provided them from any of the aforementioned persons or entities.
Conversely NPR appears to be interested in the truth and I will be discussing this and other matters live on the NPR’s Leonard Lopate radio show (FM 93.9 and AM 820) beginning at noon on 7 July 2003 from his studio in New York City. I believe that Senator Hillary Rodham-Clinton is considering active involvement of her office to inspire the publication of the truth related to those covert matters of which I have personal knowledge as they do affect national security.
Perhaps the most curious fact that continues to disturb me is that I have not yet heard from Governor Tom Ridge in response to my 28 Oct 01 and 2 Nov 01 letters regarding the Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM), all of which have been noted as being of significant interest in this series of articles.
In Part 22e of this series I asked you readers: Will you take the time to write your own Senator or Congressman and one or more of the above and demand an answer? I have found it incredible that none have thus far done as I requested OR they failed to provide this website a copy. However, three men have come direct to me expressing their willingness to tell the truth about those weapons of mass destruction (SADMs) that constitute a valid concern with regard to extra security precautions to assure they do not get in the hands of saboteurs or terrorists.

Next, on 11 August 2003, Part 22g Challenge for the Media – Truth When it Hurts.
A final report by this author on the stonewalling of Congress and the Media with regard to the SADM, listing new witnesses who can be called to testify before Congress regarding the SADM. New corroboration of the weapon’s existence and a statement on the difficulty, if not impossibility, of bringing the truth to the American People due to the reluctance of the media to enter the dangerous ground of reporting on sensitive materiel will be forthcoming in that same report.
