FBI James Casey

FBI James Casey

Like Richard Sherrow, Casey does not mention the presence of a CIA person. Collective amnesia?

Casey states that he saw the timer on a table inside the hut. The timer? Yes, ONE timer!What about the second one then?

I remind you that Casey has given his good friend Fred Burton a completely different account of the Togo event. See STRATFOR, FRED BURTON & the Togo Timer

  1. Craig says:

    With reference to the US representatives;

    It is now obvious to even a casual observer of these matters, the aforementioned folks have knowingly concealed and omitted material and relevant information with regard to this case.

    As previously noted, their individual / collective information is completely contradictory, even with numbers of timers that were supposedly present in Lome, Togo 1986.

    Of the three professional investigators;
    One persons says 2
    Two people say 1

    Also, apparently two people were taking multiple photographs of said timer[s] and at no point now, during trial, or to date have any photographs been produced of said timer[s] in situ, Lome, Togo 1986.

    Now we also learn of previously undisclosed, CIA representative was present on the trip.

    Why was the CIA presence not declared or disclosed ?


    Q Do you remember when in 1986 it was that you went to Lome?
    A It was the end of the year, I believe, October —
    Q About October —
    A September, October, the end of the year.

    Q Thank you. Did you go on your own, Mr.
    A No, I didn’t. I went with a delegation of another person from our department and a gentleman
    from the State Department.

    Q Was there a gentleman by the name of
    Mr. Owen with you?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q Was he the gentlemen from your own
    A Yes, he was.
    Q And did you also go in the company of a
    gentleman by the name of Mr. Casey?
    A Yes, I did.


    This immediately raises a number of concerns at various levels not excluding the Crown knowledge and conduct.
    When the Crown Advocate presented these questions, the Crown had in its possession a completely differing account issued and submitted by James Casey which was his 1986 report, vouched 6th December 1999.

    Also, It could be too simplistic to arrive at the theory James Casey et al provided false information due to concerns of CIA representatives who already had, by agreement, been noted and called.

    The whole matter with these folks seems to be of lies, more lies, disinformation and deception.

    Togo 1986
    There are two [2] conflicting reports with regard to matters in Togo 1986;
    Togo Says It Foiled Plot on U.S. Embassy
    August 12, 1986 – From Times Wire Services

    LOME, Togo — The Togolese government said Monday that it has thwarted a plot by leftist extremists to blow up the U.S. Embassy in the tiny West African nation using explosives believed to have been supplied by the Libyan Embassy in neighboring Benin.

    The Interior Ministry told reporters that nine people were arrested July 23 for planning the attacks. It said two briefcases containing plastic explosives, a grenade and a pistol were seized, but it did not give details as to where they were found.

    Interior Ministry officials said the suspects confessed to having planned to blow up the embassy and an open-air market in the center of Lome using the explosives smuggled from Benin, a radical Marxist state with close ties to Libya. Togo has not formally protested to Libya because it is not totally certain of Tripoli’s involvement, the officials said.
    Togo Accuses Ghana of Attack
    September 24, 1986 – United Press International

    LOME, Togo — Commandos from Ghana crossed into Togo and fought with security forces in Lome today in an apparent bid to topple President Gen. Gnassingbe Eyadema, officials said. At least 14 people were reported killed.

    A radio report said the commandos were repulsed in a counterattack led by Eyadema himself. Eyadema took power in 1967 in the west African country when he deposed President Nicolas Grunitzky. He was elected to a seven-year term in 1979. The first comment from the Ghanaian Marxist government of Flight Lt. Jerry J. Rawlings was broadcast on Radio Ghana, which made no mention of an attempted coup but said its border patrol personnel had been fired upon by Togo.

    Noted: The commandos were repulsed in a counter-attack led by President Gen Eyaderna himself !

    With reference to the Casey report;
    Apparently an attempt to bomb the US Embassy, Lome, Togo, July 1986 supposedly with individuals arrested and materials seized but no enquiry was initiated and no-one from the US investigated and no investigation took place ?

    Why would that be ?
    Are these matters invented and/or purposely introduced ?
    Target QADDAFI
    Published: February 22, 1987

    This is an extensive journalist article of US et al policy with regard to Libya in the 80’s.

    Note page 5 of this article;

    “Inman soon resigned from the C.I.A. and Casey continued to handle the intelligence briefings to Clark on Libyan terrorism. Some task force members were convinced that Clark’s aides, including McFarlane and Michael A. Ledeen, then a State Department consultant, were leaking Casey’s reports. One task force official eventually concluded that Casey was in effect running an operation inside the American Government: He was feeding the disinformation into the intelligence system so it would be seen as separate, independent reports and taken seriously by other Government agencies.”
    October 02, 1986 BOB WOODWARD The Washington Post
    WASHINGTON — In August, the Reagan Administration launched a secret and unusual campaign of deception designed to convince Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi that he was about to be attacked again by U.S. bombers and perhaps be ousted in a coup, according to informed sources and documents.

    The secret plan, adopted at a White House meeting Aug. 14, was outlined in a three-page memo that John M. Poindexter, the President’s national security affairs adviser, sent to President Reagan.
    It was an elaborate plan, “a series of closely coordinated events involving covert, diplomatic, military and public actions,” according to Poindexter’s memo.
    Beginning with an Aug. 25 article in the Wall Street Journal, American news media reported as fact much of the false information generated by the new plan.
    Published articles described renewed Libyan backing for terrorism and a looming, new U.S.-Libya confrontation.
