Newstrack in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Ann Bradley and Christie, and others in Stephen
Jones' office, D'Ferdinand Carone, the clerks in the Oklahoma county and
federal courts, and scores of others who have selflessly provide information
from their own research and investigations into this and other scandals.
My publisher, Adam Parfrey, who instinctively understood the
significance of this crime, and, took a chance on me when none of big
State Representative Charles Key, who became a good friend. A man whose
humor, faith, and courage to stand up and publicly question the governments'
official line, putting his life and his career on the line, became an anchor
for us all.
Jayna Davis of KFOR, the original lead investigator on the Middle
Eastern angle, eventhough the New York Times Broadcasting Company shut down her
investigation and took away her helicopter and cell phone.
David Hall of KPOC-TV, who gave me most of the leads I wouldn't have
gotten anywhere else. Last I heard, the IRS was screwing with Hall because of
his courageous work on the Waco case.
Craig Roberts, whose patience and generosity proved invaluable. Craig
was a staunch ally whose tenacity and good humor proved an inspiration when I
became frustrated (which was pretty often).
Craig's cop friend Randy, who sneaked into the NCIC now and then when we
Leslie Jorgensen, (Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report
) a great gal with a marvelous sense of humor, who kept me up to date on
the latest gossip and straightened me out about certain lawyers.
Gene Wheaton, who took me for a circuitous ride through the desert to
talk to me in a scene reminiscent of Mr. "X" in the movie JFK, then regaled me
mostly with personal stories about his interesting life.
Bill McCoy (may he rest in peace), who provided humorous translations
for Wheaton's conspiracy theory theories, and was instrumental in keeping
"scribblers" like me on the path.
Ace Hayes (may he rest in peace), publisher of the Portland Free
Press, and my main mentor, who helped me to understand how the system
really works, or at least the system according to Ace.
Sherman Skolnick, my other main mentor, who never let me forget how many
years he's been in the business, and reminded me that I have a long way to go,
Will Northrop, "Matzo-Ball Charlie," who claimed to work for every
Israeli intelligence agency except the Mossad, then took me for $1600 to
sip Margaritas in Florida.
Mike Johnston, who accused me of stealing his book, Abu-Nidal: A Gun
For Hire, when he knows full well that it was stolen by Chinese cleaning
ladies and used as Won Ton wrappers.
James "Jimmy" Rothstein, whose openness, patience, and selflessness
proved to be a guiding light in the murky and confusing world of spooks and
Mien Furher, Al Martin, Iran-Contra "insider extraodinaire," whose still
waiting for his $100,000 retainer fee.
Bill Jasper of the John Birch Society, who is convinced it really is all
a Communist plot.
George Wallace who introduced me to Jasper and kept the Commie hunters
off my back.
Roger Cravens, Dave Rydel, Claire Wolfe, Jon Roland, and other Patriots
who posted important and much-needed information on the state of our nation on
the Patriots' Information Mailing List (PIML); and Ian Goddard, Bob Hall, and
others who did the same on the OKBOMB mailing list.
Laurie Mylroie of the Foreign Policy Institute, for her in-depth
analysis of the Iraqis and the World Trade Center bombing.
Terry Cook, for his videos and books, and his excellent and
comprehensive research on the staggering new technology that is taking control
over our lives.
Jim Levine, and Terry and Kelly, who handled our account and especially
Jim's mother, who made me Chicken soup when I was sick.
And finally, Mr. "M," without who's generous financial support, none of
this would have been possible.
And I can't leave out all those people who, although aware of the
efforts of the authors and others in attempting to bring this information to
the public, were either indifferent, or actually obstructed these efforts. The
first of these honors goes to the so-called "Justice" Department and the FBI.
And to the state Attorney General, Drew Edmondson, and the local District
Attorney in Oklahoma City, Bob Macy, who has an annoying tendency to talk out
of both sides of his mouth. Oh, Bob, what is that stench?!
And the supervisors of the business office of Southwestern Bell and
specifically Mr. Edwards and Mr. Dave Lopez, President of SWB, whose cold,
callous, indifference and lack of empathy when I became behind on my phone bill
resulted in the termination of my phone service for three weeks, my poor old
mother thinking I was dead, and the interruption of our investigation, which
they were fully aware of.
And the kind and generous folks of M.C.I. Communications, who not only
refused to sponsor our investigation, they never even sent a reply to my
inquiry. May they and the principals of SWB get what they deserve.
And ultimately, all my friends who have kept me [partially] sane
throughout the years, even though conspiracies have a way of making one come
unglued: Ron Ulfohn, Joe Williams, John Flores, David Wills, Lorenzo, Jon and
Lisa, and all those helpful souls I've undoubtedly missed, including my parents
(although I'm not sure they've helped me keep sane).
