Spy trap' probe now tied to U.S. and Britain
Murdered pair may have links to software plot
DISINFORMATION IS RAISED TO A NEW LEVEL
When information that is going to cause powerful people and governments lots of problems is about to be released, the powerful people and governments have to do something to siderail it before it is taken too seriously. One of the best ways is to spread disinformation that will trivialize or discredit the story. It appears this is now being done to the investigation that is currently breaking in Canada.
For 8 months, Rumor Mill News has know about an investigation that will knock the lid off ALL the crimes and treason that has been committed over the last 50 years.
We have hinted and hinted -- but we have said absolutely NOTHING that would compromise the investigations in any way
However, there are other people, who either at the direction of their government handlers or by the direction of their own large egos, have decided to add their two cents to the mix. In so doing, they not only have taken-in the Toronto Star, but they have muddied the waters so badly that other newspapers may choose to drop this story.
That's okay -- because when the investigation is complete -- I assure you, It WILL be released -- if not in North America, there are newspapers in Europe who are still brave enough to print the truth. When the truth is finally released -- the Rumor Mill will definitely let you know.
I am enclosing an article that muddies the waters so badly that many people in media are now dismissing the story. It has been thrown in the category of conspiracy theorists, along with Al Fayed and Oswald LeWinter.
Rumor Mill News knows who is responsible for contacting the Star and muddying the waters. We have known for many years that this woman works with our government. We have chosen to say nothing about her and not even mention her name. She is dangerous. Oswald LeWinter and Les Coleman will vouch for this, as will Rodney Stich and Michael Riconosciuto. I have wanted to ask all four of them to write a short opinion of this woman, but I was advised to keep quiet and stay out of the line of fire.
I would not even have said this much, if her disinformation had not muddied the waters of the Canadian investigation. She may have muddied the waters -- but given time -- the water will clear and the truth will out.
I will add more on this later -- here is the article that appeared in the Star

Toronto Star Ottawa Bureau
OTTAWA - RCMP investigators probing allegations spies hacked into top-secret Canadian intelligence files are working with at least two foreign police agencies, The Star has learned.
Sources say the Mounties have joined officers from Britain and a tiny police department in California in interviews connected to their spy probe.
Those revelations add to the intrigue surrounding the investigation into claims a secret ``trap door'' in doctored computer software allowed foreign spies to hack into Canadian files and download sensitive intelligence information.
Software debugged in `94
Oddly, the interest of the other police agencies connects the Mountie spy probe to a double homicide and - coincidentally - to the aftermath of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Two Scotland Yard detectives travelled to Canada in late February to interview a former Israeli intelligence agent.
A father and son who were murdered apparently knew one of the key players in the alleged plot to alter the software program.
That ex-spy, Ari Ben-Menashe, has said he was involved in a scheme to sell rigged software - known as Promis - around the world.
The British were interested in talking to Ben-Menashe, now a Canadian citizen, about what police have described as ``an allegation of attempted deception.''
Sources say Ben-Menashe once met with Mohamed al-Fayed - father of Princess Diana's lover, Dodi, and billionaire owner of the Harrods in London - and that Scotland Yard detectives wanted to talk to him about that exchange.
Two Mounties investigating the possible breach of national security in Canada, Sean McDade and Randy Buffam, sat in on that interview.
A Scotland Yard officer insisted the computer spying allegations ``wasn't anything to do with our case whatsoever.''
Neither Scotland Yard nor the RCMP would explain why members of the RCMP's National Security Investigations Section were present.
The Mounties have also co-operated with the police department in Hercules, Calif.
Hercules police are investigating the 1997 deaths of a father and his 12-year-old son.
Neal and young Brendan Abernathy were each tied up with electrical cable and shot execution-style in the back of the head. They were found dead on their living room floor.
The Abernathys apparently knew one of the key players in the alleged plot to alter Promis, a computer software program first developed to help the U.S. justice department track cases.
Hercules police Detective Sue Todd, who is investigating the slayings, didn't return The Star's messages.
But a source
(RMNews -- Does anyone suspect this source is the one to whom I referred in the above article?)
who requested anonymity said Todd has interviewed him and told him she was investigating an allegation the murders were ``somehow connected to the scandal involving Promis.''
Todd joined the RCMP's McDade at an interview earlier this year with Michael Riconoscuito, an American computer whiz who claims he helped prepare the Promis software for sale to Canada.
Both Todd and McDade visited Riconoscuito in prison, where he's serving a drug-related sentence, confirmed Louis Buffardi, Riconoscuito's lawyer.
Buffardi declined further comment about what was discussed during the interview, saying he'd need his client's permission to do so.
The RCMP confirmed last week they are investigating a possible breach of national security after a story about it was published in The Star.
