Thank you for your reply Jim. Thanks also to scientist and St Udio for their input.
I have indeed read 'The Franklin Coverup'. It was the book that started me on this very strange and frightening trail. I'm sure we all remember the
cases that were given air back in the '80's on 'Geraldo', 'Oprah' et al. Then came Mr. De Camps book.
I find it very curious that the SRA furor of the 1980's was quickly stamped out and ridiculed into silence just as publications like 'The Franklin
Coverup' hit the presses. It seems that as long as people were searching for Satanic Covens in their towns (à la 'Race With the Devil') and not
looking at the involvement of their own government in these horrendous crimes the speculation and revelations could continue.
Once pieces of the puzzle were starting to be put in place with serious research, in came the (self-professed) professional nay-sayers. We have El
Paso reporter Debbie Nathan, who seemed to prefer the idea of locking up the children that gave testimony at McMartin and went on to publish work
debunking the whole idea of SRA.
At times it is difficult to tell whether Nathan is a "skeptic" or an apologist of sexual abuse. "Most pedophilia," she contends, "consists of
caressing and fondling. for most children, these experiences appear to be at best confusing, at worst traumatic. But others seem to willingly
participate, and some adults recall that while still legally minors they accepted, even welcomed, sex with grown-ups." Nathan doesn't condemn the
abuser. After all, "compared to the abuses of a child protection movement gone mad, could incest be any worse?" Alex Cockburn is a Nathan supporter,
and has on occasion gotten caught up in her pro-pedophilic obfuscations, as in this diatribe from The Nation for March 8, 1993:
As a Miami-based anthropologist, Rafael Martinez, consultant to the Dade County Medical Examiner's Office, told Nathan, in traditional Latin
American cultures "kissing and hugging is common with children up to three or four years old. It is common for females to kiss children all over the
place including on the genitals.
The practice of kissing children on the genitals may be traditional in some cultures, but it is frowned upon by the Manhattan Beach preschool
We Have Alex Cockburn another journalist who vigorously supports Nathan is the son a British spy and a defender of the Warren Commission. We have
Elizabeth Loftus, member of the infamous False Memory Syndrome Foundation, who continues to try and prove to the world that false memories can be
implanted into children with great ease (Telling children that they saw Bugs Bunny at Disney World is a far cry from memories of excruciating abuse).
We had the Paul and Shirley Eberle who were definately professionals in the field of child abuse as they published the seedy 1970's child porn rag
Finally we have the insidious False Memory Syndrome Foundation itself. Staffed by an assortment of accused paedophiles and CIA spooks.
Martin T. Orne, CIA researcher, an original board member of the FMSF. A man who had his fingers in many MK ULTRA pies. Hypno-programming experiments
(the elicitation of "anti-social" behaviour, dissolving memory etc...) funded by the CIA while he was at Cornell University.
The infamous Louis Jolyon West another past board member whose CIA career runs all the way back to his inteview with Jack Ruby.
The "Amazing" James Randi, professional debunker and CIA consultant.
Then we have the illustrious founder of the FMSF, Ralph Underwager, a man who just couldn't keep his mouth shut to Dutch paedophile magazine
Peter and Pamela Freyd (Pamela's name being the only one now mentioned on the FMSF's website) were accused of abuse by their daughter, Jennifer.
Peter Freyd was known to tell people that his daughter was brain damaged. I guess she proved him wrong when she went on to become a professor of
psychology at the University of Oregon. Pamela sought the intervention of Dr. Harold Lief, a former major in the Army Medical Corps and a member of
the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania (He became a member in 1968, when federally funded behavioural modification experiments at Holmesburg
Prison were in full swing). Lief and Orne had collaborated in the past in the field of Hypnotic Programming. Needless to say Lief went on to become an
advisor to the FMSF.
The FMSF brings me, naturally, to the McMartin case.
Scientist, the case at the McMartin Pre-school was a classic example of a media white-wash, with the involvement of people like Debbie Nathan,
Elizabeth Loftus, Abby Mann and (unbelievably) Oliver Stone.
We must remember that the McMartin trial ended in a hung jury. The jurors were left in no doubt that the children at McMartin had been abused. But
defining who exactly was responsible for the abuse was undetermined.
According to researcher Alex Constantine, Charles Buckey, the man that built the Pre-School was an operative with Air America
. He was also the
father of the key defendant, Ray Buckey.
The main issue that forced the collapse of the case in the public's eye was the failure by the DA's office to find the "tunnels" that the children
maintained they were abused in. The media was strangely silent when evidence of these tunnels was found.
The results of the survey by Ground penetrating Radar proved consistent with discoveries of the subsequent excavations, all of which confirmed not
only the basic descriptions of children but also specific details of location, interior features and putative function.
The McMartin Tunnel Project confirms that a functional pattern of tunnels once existed under the McMartin Preschool, that the tunnels provided access
outside the walls of the structure, that they must have been constructed after the structure was built in 1966, and that they were subsequently
completely repacked with extraneous soil and implanted artifacts at some time prior to May, 1990. While this project had no way of determining who dug
these tunnels, or for what purpose, the discoveries stand in stark contrast to the skeptical position that the children only imagined what they
described as activities underground.
What I wonder is; Are the cults involved in this abuse the construct of the Intelligence wing of the US Government. Cooked up when George Estabrooks
did his research into the creation of "Super Spies" and discovered that the shattering of the human mind was the best method in reaching his goal of
the perfect "Manchurian Candidate".
"We will see that emotional shock produces exactly the same results as hypnotism!"
- George Estabrooks
"multiple personality [can] be both caused and cured by hypnotism. Remember that war is a grim business. Suppose we deliberately set up that
condition of multiple personality to further the ends of military intelligence"
- George Estabrooks
everyone [can] be thrown into the deepest state of hypnotism by the use of what [I] termed the Russian method - no holds barred, deliberate
disintegration of the personality by psychic torture... The subject might be left a mental wreck but war is a grim business
Or are they something that has been with us for many centuries? What Freud referred to:
"we may have before us a residue of a primaeval sexual
Something that the Intelligence wing of the Govt tapped into for their own nefarious ends.
Besides John DeCamp, I must acknowledge Alex Constantine and David McGowan for their tireless work in this field.
