  •  I'm not the 'tin hat' type, but be careful (4.00)
    After reading your diary, it reminded me pretty quickly who the last guy was that managed to have an investigation veer into the right wing closeted gay community.

    Jim Garrison.

    I'm not remotely suggesting anyone Garrison investigated was innocent or guilty of anything. I'm not going near that. However, they most certainly did destroy the reputation of Jim Garrison. These guys have been keeping secrets their whole lives. I imagine they've gotten pretty good at it. Be cautious.

    •  I was thinking the same thing... (4.00)
      New Orleans, Texas and the CIA, military industrial complex, KBR... hunt oil, who backed Nixon's return form political exile to run in 69.. the southern strategy....

      down that rabbit hole goes everything... ONI, kicking Saddam back into Iraq after the first failed Ba'athist coup attempt he led in 55...  installing the Shah in Iran, IBEX, IT&T, Rockwell... the fall of the Shah, the Iraq/Iran war back-burn... the escalation of Jihad and the mujahedeen via BCCI, Iran/Contra which again ties back to anti-communist proxy wars and the drug cartels...

      you could do laps and laps on how that can all tie and feeds back and grows.

      cheers,

      Mitch Gore

    •  er, actually Jim Garrison wasn't destroyed.... (none)
      Important to remember that despite all the attempts to smear Garrison that he remained DA until 1973 and that he rose to become a judge on Louisiana Appeals Circuit Court until his death.
      •  Yeah, it was the JFK things that hurt him... (none)
        He lost re-election as DA to Connick (Harry Connick's father) not over the JFK situation but over corruption involving (I think) his office's investiagtion of illegal gambling.  His office appeared to have real corruption in it.  And Connick was to Garrison's left (Garrison had a long standing practice of conducting investigations by blackmailing closeted gay men, long before the JFK trial).

        If it had been a rightwing vendata against him, he would never have been elected an appeal
