Bob in Portland nails Mueller at Consortium News

In the comments to a good article by Daniel Lazare, asking why Mueller didn't investigate the Seth Rich murder, the writers provide a fascinating discussion about Rich, and Bob in Portland does his best work. This series of comments is one of the best things I've read at Consortium News.

Why Didn't Mueller Investigate Seth Rich?

Konstantin Kilimnik now, along with Joseph Mifsud, are two characters with western intelligence links whom Mueller has misidentified as Russian actors. I mention this because when Mueller investigated Pan Am 103 he didn’t notice the McKee Team, a joint US intelligence team returning back to the US from Beruit against orders. One would think he might have wanted to clear that up before he went on to blame the two Libyans. He also might have wanted to find out if Monser al-Kassar, identified by Barron’s based on an insurance investigator’s report, as being the person who supplied the PFLP-GC cell in Frankfort the bomb which brought down the plane. Unfortunately. al-Kassar, besides being responsible for 20% of the heroin coming into the US, was also an arms dealer providing weapons at the Middle Eastern side of Iran-contra. The first big story on Pan Am 103 in the NY Times also identified the PFLP-GC cell as the source of the bomb. Initially. All that was forgotten with Mueller’s incurious investigation.

Mueller managed to prosecute Manuel Noriega without noticing how Ollie North, the CIA and others moved weapons and drugs through Noriega, nor the money-laundering our secret services did.

Ask Colleen Rowley what happened to numerous investigations the FBI was running pre and post-9/11 while Mueller was in charge there. He also charged two different scientists at the Fort Detrick labs without any proof and without the ability or equipment to produce military-grade anthrax while overlooking that Battelle Memorial, which was responsible for producing military-grade anthrax, had an office within a mile of where the anthrax letters were mailed. And he discounted the fact that two of the letters just happened to be sent to two Democratic politicians opposing the Patriot Act.

Finally, I once again point out that Mueller married his childhood sweetheart, Ann Cabell Standish, in 1966, three years after the JFK assassination. Not coincidentally, his great uncle was Richard Bissell, who had been fired by Kennedy after lying to him about the Bay of Pigs. Kennedy fired three executives from the CIA over the Bay of Pigs: Bissell, director of operations, Allen Dulles, the Director of Intelligence, and Charles Cabell. Cabell was Mueller’s bride Ann’s grandfather and second in command at the CIA. Her grand uncle, Earle Cabell Jr., was the mayor of Dallas and hosted JFK’s assassination there in 1963. Recently declassified documents show that Mayor Cabell was also a CIA asset at the time.

There is absolutely no reason to believe that Robert Swan Mueller III was ever an honest prosecutor. He protects the Agency. That is his role in life. Ask yourself why the MSM never seems to string these things together.

Perhaps he was of good character while in the Marines, but seemingly this vanished when he became a civilian. The linked quotation is eloquent. Similarities between the current Müller Report and the dark past--sins of glaring omission and distortion are obvious in motivation and intended effect. Herr Müller (sieg heil) has been a good fascist brown shirt his entire life from what I can tell. He is a vainglorious, spiteful, hate-filled man--an out and out psychopath. Should anybody be surprised?

@dkmich The MSM is paid not to help the citizens. They are paid to support the powers that be.

in the discussion about Daniel Lazare's article was this one that addresses one of my own questions about whether Assange and/or Craig Murray even know who their original sources are. I mean, I've all along wondered whether Assange may at times work with intermediaries so as not to know his sources. The bold type in this comment is my emphasis:

Craig Murray denies that the person he met near American University on September 25, 2016 passed any emails to him. Many share this misconception due to the Daily Mail story of December 14, 2016, but we need to finally get that idea out of our head and look at what Murray has actually said. Posts of mine at Lee Stranahan’s new discussion forum (stranahan [dot] com) provide details on this mistaken story and many links regarding what Murray has actually claimed.

Actually the [Podesta] emails were already safely with WikiLeaks by the time Murray met the [Podesta] whistleblower for some purpose he characterizes as “administrative” in nature. It is fairly clear from his descriptions that this person, an American, had had access to the NSA database, and that is the origin of that trove. He says that US intelligence specifically monitored the Podesta brothers communications due to their status as highly paid lobbyists for Saudi Arabia. (Horton, Credico interviews)

Murray implies in the Scott Horton interview (December 13, 2016), that the DNC email leak (as opposed to the Podesta one) was from an American source from within the Democratic Party or DNC. He specifies “DNC” in his interview with David Swanson on the same day. With Horton, he also discusses Assange’s statements regarding Seth Rich as reflecting concern that Rich may have been killed by someone who _thought_ he was the leaker, whether correctly or incorrectly. Stated this way, he avoids confirmation or denial that Rich was the DNC source, but the statement would arguably assume the existence of _some_ rational basis for so thinking. And Murray does seem to know the identities of BOTH leakers, in the DNC case presumably because Assange has told him.

One problem may be that Aaron Rich may have also been involved in the DNC leak, and so far has not released (according to Ed Butowski’s attorney Ty Clevenger) Assange or others from confidentiality obligations.
