BOGGS WAS SUPPOSED TO GIVE A SPEECH THE NIGHT HE WAS KILLED, SPILLING THE BEANS ON THE WARREN COMMISSION'S LIES? BILL CLINTON, A CIA ASSASSIN? COULD IT ALL BE TRUE? TOO JUICY FOR WORDS: ENJOY!

New info on CIA COVER-UP OF 1972 DEATH: HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER HALE BOGGS
"As Congress wound up its business yesterday, a gloom pervaded the traditional
end-of-school atmosphere as searching parties reported no progress in their
search for a plane which disappeared in an Alaskan rain storm Monday.
Aboard the plane were:
*HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER, HALE BOGGS (D-LA)
*REPRESENTATIVE NICK BEGICH (D-AK)
*RUSSELL BROWN,(Administrative Aide to Representative Begich)
"On Wednesday, search planes skimmed over the rugged Chilkat mountain range
south of Juneau (Alaska) where an emergency RADIO BEEPER was heard earlier...The
Cessna 310, piloted by veteran bush pilot DON JONZ, left Anchorage for
Juneau Monday on a 560 mile flight, and was equipped with an EMERGENCY
BEACON...which activates on a crash. The signal can also be activated manually.
Search planes were combing a 60 mile wide corridor along the flight coastline
path of the lost airplane..
The two-engine Cessna 310, carrying Boggs and Rep. Nick Begich disappeared
in a rainstorm Monday on a flight from Anchorage to the State Capitol of
Juneau near the southern end of the glacier-dotted Alaskan panhandle.
Air Force, Coast Guard, and Civil Air Patrol planes, and 400 salmon fishing
boats battled rough weather and the short Alaskan day searching the choppy seas of the Gulf of Alaska, and the rugged, snow-covered mountains along
its shore, for the missing ORANGE-AND- WHITE AIRCRAFT.
"Boggs and his colleagues disappeared about 800 miles south of the polar
regions where comedian Will Rogers and pilot Wiley Post crashed in a heavy
Alaskan fog on August 15, 1935. The two men died in that crash. Boggs,
58, the number-two man in the House hierarchy, as Democratic House Majority
Leader was in Alaska, campaigning for Begich, a freshman Congressman representing
the entire 49th state..."*- "ROLL CALL" 10/19/72
"The day after an airplane carrying House Majority Leader Hale Boggs (D-LA)
and Rep. Nick Begich (D-Alaska) vanished in Alaska...the U.S. Coast Guard
received a mysterious report that a RADIO CALL from the downed plane had
been picked up and that TWO of the plane's four passengers were STILL ALIVE.
"The story of the report, which has never before been revealed, is contained
in FBI DOCUMENTS obtained last week (July, 1992) by 'Roll Call' under a
Freedom of Information Act request. The source of the report, whose identity
was censored, was deemed credible, but there is evidence that the Coast
Guard may NOT have followed up the report quickly, IF AT ALL.
"Former Rep. LINDY BOGGS, (D-LA), the widow of the Majority Leader and
his successor as House Member from New Orleans from 1973 to 1990, and TOMMY
BOGGS, the son of the former Congressman said last week they do not recall
ever being told of the report. A search of the NEXUS database also found
no mention of the report, in press accounts of the plane's disappearance.
"According to an URGENT Oct. 18, 1972 TELEX from the Los Angeles office
of the FBI to acting FBI Director Patrick (unintelligible), on October
17 - the day after Boggs, Begich, pilot Don Jonz, and Begich's aide, Russell
Brown disappeared - the U.S. Coast Guard station in Long Beach, California
received a mysterious phone call from a man who 'advised his company is
engaged in electronic experimentation.'
"The man claimed he had been 'notified by associates that THEY HAD PICKED
UP A SIGNAL from downed aircraft in panhandle region of Alaska, and TWO
PEOPLE WERE STILL ALIVE.' The man provided U.S. Coast Guard with DETAILED
DIRECTIONS on the location of the craft, 'but vehemently refused to identify
his company or type of equipment used,' because of 'security reasons' and
the protection of patents. The Coast Guard requested details about the
type of radio signal received, the wording of the message, and the type
of equipment used to receive the message, but the man refused to reveal
"He was 'evasive about background and declined to give name of firm where
employed,' the telex says. The man claimed he received the call from 'friends'
who 'are involved in working with highly sophisticated experimental, electronic
surveillance equipment.' a section of the telex that appears to give details
the FBI learned about the identity of the man and his company was censored
in the FOIA version delivered to 'ROLL CALL' - for reasons of privacy and
to protect confidential sources.
"Another individual, whose identity was also censored by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation in the document, apparently vouched for the first man's
credibility, stating his opinion 'that source aforementioned information
is reliable.' But GARY HYMEL, who was Boggs' AA, was extremely skeptical
of the report when informed Friday by 'Roll Call.' 'Believe me, that wasn't
the only one,' he said. 'There were a lot, and it went on for a long time...and
the Air Force would check out each one.' He added, 'I find it hard to believe
that wasn't followed through with, because everything else was, certainly.'
Hymel is now vice chairman of Hill & Knowlton, the public relations
"The telex indicates that rescuers INTENDED to search the area named by
the man beginning at dawn on Oct. 18, two days after the plane disappeared.
It is unclear from the document whether the Coast Guard followed up on
the report, but at least one piece of information indicates a delay...NO
OTHER DOCUMENTS INCLUDING THE FOIA REFER TO ANY ACTION IN RESPONSE. According
to an...internal FBI memo, the Coast Guard in Juneau advised the Coast
Guard station in Los Angeles 'that the validity of information should be
resolved before USCG, Juneau would attempt any further effort in the location
of the coordinates given because of the extreme weather conditions.'
"At 1:28 p.m. on Oct. 18, the Los Angeles office of the FBI sent a SECOND
URGENT TELEX to Washington. The source of the report followed up with more
detailed information on the location of the downed aircraft DERIVED FROM
TARGET UNIT' - an apparent reference to the mysterious surveillance equipment..'Draw
a stright line from Anchorage to Juneau; head West from Juneau two hundred
and (?) six and one-half miles across Yakutat Bay and the Malaspina Glacier,
draw a line from that point to the coast, go back north along that line
six point forty-three miles to the downed airplane.' The source told the
FBI that 'tracking equipment now being used is tracking the MEN and not
"According to the telex, the source 'stated his information may be significant,
and suggests PASSENGERS HAD DEPARTED DOWNED PLANE. At this time, inquiry
made of (blank) if he would submit to personal interview for all details
and he replied quote 'No' unquote.' Agents gave the new information to
the Coast Guard immediately. FBI headquarters received ANOTHER TELEX on
Oct. 20 - four days after the crash - detailing additional contacts with
the same man and another source. The two men again refused to provide any
other information concerning their source other than to state that 'as
of AM today at least two persons were still alive at the crash site.' The
men also said the downed plane was WITHIN A QUARTER MILE of the directions
they had given, but that 'there was no radio signal emanating from the
crash that could be used to locate it.'
"The Oct. 18 internal memo suggests that, despite the mysteriousness of
the men, FBI AGENTS BELIEVED THEY WERE CREDIBLE. Working around the clock,
FBI agents repeatedly attempted to persuade the men to reveal more about
the source of their information. The original source was contacted by an
agent and, he 'appeared rational, extremely intelligent, but somewhat strange.'
The heavily censored memo indicates the man had a U.S. military background...
"According to an Oct. 26, 1972 article in 'Roll Call,' the U.S. Air Force
reported at the time that it had 'completed checks of reports from HAM
RADIO OPERATORS who said they heard DISTRESS CALLS from an aircraft going
down in the vicinity where Bogg's plane disappeared.' 'Roll Call' at the
time reported Air Force Major Henry Stocker saying, 'We have done all we
can with the spurious beacons and radio reports...We are 99 percent sure
the plane didn't carry that type of equipment.' No trace of the 58-year-old
House Majority Leader and the other three men was ever found...
"THE MEMBERS WERE EVENTUALLY DECLARED DEAD, and Hale Boggs was succeeded
by his wife Lindy, while Don Young (R) was elected in a 1973 special election
to succeed Begich. Then-Rep. Tip O'Neill (D-Mass) succeeded Boggs as Majority
Leader, eventually ascending to the Speakership in 1978...'Roll Call' has
sent a letter to the FBI appealing the Bureau's censorship of the name
of the source of the crash report and other information contained in the
FBI files. Jonathan Ringel contributed to this report." - "ROLL CALL" 8/3/92
"...Hopes of finding the four missing men began to dim by the weekend,
though they were by no means extinguished. (Alaska is full of stories of
men walking out of the wilderness weeks after becoming lost, and every
plane is required to carry a survival kit including food, Arctic sleeping
gear, and a stove.) Still, many small planes are swallowed by the bleak
terrain and never found. That possibility left the voters of Alaska and
Louisiana with the haunting prospect of casting their ballots next month
for two men whose fate may be cruelly and indefinitely concealed..." - "NEWSWEEK" 10/30/72
interesting sidenote: Boggs' DRIVER on the day he took off was none other
than a young BILL CLINTON. - OL]
"...in October 1972, McGovern having won the nomination to run against
Nixon, one of the senator's aides, Sarah Ehrmann, drove out early to the
airport in San Antonio, Texas, to meet the candidate as he arrived for
a rally at the Alamo. She was surprised to find someone already there on
the tarmac, eager to greet the campaign plane, 'a tall young fellow dressed
in a white linen suit,' as she remembered him, 'standing at the foot of
the stairway.' That's Bill Clinton, another aide said. He was one of the
campaign's state coordinators in Texas and would be briefing McGovern personally
on the events and politics at hand...
"Bill Clinton 'loved the game,' [Taylor] Branch remembered. He moved from
faction to faction, audience to audience, with an instinctive and utter
fluency, paying every obeisance, telling each just what they wished to
hear. 'He seemed fully at home in a roomful of county chairmen or a roomful
of radicals,' according to Branch. 'Look, we've got to expand our base
to appeal to people who don't see the world the way we do,' Hillary remembered
his 'always saying' in 1972. But in sprawling oligarchic TEXAS, he made
expedient campaign allies rather than converts to McGovern..."*- ROGER MORRIS 
[NOTE: *It was to be a short turn-around trip for Boggs - he had to return in time
for the Democratic National Convention. He had a very special speech to
make. A member of the Warren Commission, was he planning to expose evidence
they had suppressed? According to comedian Richard Belzer, "Member GERALD
FORD was an FBI informant, who (illegally) leaked information about the
Warren Commission to J. EDGAR HOOVER" (Boggs' sworn enemy) and "House majority
leader T. HALE BOGGS (journalist Cokie Roberts' father) went so far as
to accuse the FBI of Gestapo-like tactics (See April 22, 1971 supra) and
publicly expressed doubts about the Warren Commission's findings.
My personal theory is that it was a CIA hit - and the hitman was BILL CLINTON.
Remember, the CIA are the ones who handle political assassinations and
Clinton was a CIA asset from his days at Oxford. Anybody even slightly
familiar with his mentality knows he would sacrifice anybody to his ambition
(and has - repeatedly). In addition, plane crashes are Clinton's trademark.
There have been many of them surrounding him. And in almost every case,
someone who posed a possible threat to him has died. Coincidence?
Boggs had to be stopped before he gave that fatal speech at the Convention.
WHY WAS CLINTON DRIVING BOGGS THAT MORNING? He was supposed to be in TEXAS,
working for the McGovern campaign. There is only one possible answer: he
was there UNDER ORDERS. But from whom? Hoover? Probably. But only INDIRECTLY.
Over two- and-a-half years earlier, on February 26, 1970, Hoover broke
off liaison with the Central Intelligence Agency: "...I want direct liaison
here with CIA terminated & any contact with CIA in the future to be by letter only. H." - CURT GENTRY 
McGovern? Again, unlikely. He was on Boggs side, pushing for a senate investigation
of the FBI. Warren? Possibly. Ford? More likely. He was a friend of Hoover's,
in his debt - who had played a strong role in the final fraudulent decison
of the Warren Commission. He - like Hoover - stood to gain a great deal
by the silencing of Boggs. And conversely, to LOSE a great deal if Boggs
LIVED TO TALK. I guess we will never know precisely who was behind Boggs'
death - but it is a fairly safe bet (especially with Clinton involved)
that it WASN'T an accident. It certainly wasn't because the pilot couldn't
deal with rough weather. After all, he was a seasoned Alaskan bush pilot
- who had survived much worse than this. In addition, they had everything
necessary for their survival on the plane - including food, stove, communication
equipment, etc; and the authorities even knew EXACTLY where they were -
and how many were still ALIVE! Why was the FBI so interested in covering
up the information about those radio calls - and WHY ARE THEY STILL DOING SO TODAY?! - OL]
