Yes I did see his preposterous post stating that and I called him out on it.
His reply was that he was going to do a big post on it and how the CIA got Whitlam out.
Totally ridicuous and outrageous claims. I was friends with Gough Whitlam in the early 70's through music and have a bit of knowledge about how
Whitlam was bounced out of office and it had nothing to do with the CIA, more to do with the Governer General, Sir John Kerr. That fact alone shows
that the US did not 'own' Oz as Oz had a Governer Generel who technically had more power than poor old Gough and reported directly to the Queen.
I feel our Mr Lear makes these outrageous claims just to promote controversy.
