To have the ability to predict the future, but not be able to act when
serious damage to oneís country is so obvious a potential, truly can be
Unlimited Access, page 38: "In the Clinton Administration,
we had a major problem with interns walking off with Laptop computers."
Page 36: "Federal employees were trying to find more than $150,000
worth of equipment lost or stolen from the (Clinton) inauguration"
Washington Post headline May 5, 2000: "State Department Missing
2 More Laptop Computers; Top Aide Involved."
Unlimited Access, page 67: "A related risk came from the
new administrationís total disregard for the security of classified information.
Just as they ignored the need for FBI SPIN investigations, so too did
they deride the idea of needing security clearances to handle or read
Alternatively, consider what is written on page 152: "I wonder if
the Department of Justice or Congress knows that what this administration
is doing is illegal? To me, itís a clear violation of national security,
established standards of conduct, and Executive Orders of the president."
Insight Magazine article dated May 8, 2000: "FBI Probes Espionage
at Clinton White House." The article details an investigation that
was begun in late 1996 or early 1997 when the FBI received a tip from
the CIA that a local telephone manager was acting suspicious. Before too
much time had gone by, the FBI "discovered enough information to
make it believe that, somehow, the highest levels of the State Department
were compromised, as well as the White House and the National Security
The FBI did not have to wait for a tip from the CIA! One of their own
agents, working inside the Clinton White House, had warned them of a most
serious security breach. The warning came in plain English, easy to understand:
"The new phone system was a security nightmare. The old system was
self-contained, manned twenty-four hours every day. The new system was
computerized and, therefore, not self-contained." Page 47, Unlimited
Many more details of the new, seriously flawed telephone system appeared
in the manuscript of my book, submitted to FBI Headquarters for their
review in the winter of 1995! The FBI forced me to redact important information
that detailed the White House Telephone System national security weaknesses,
citing concerns for national security. Apparently, their only concern
was about the relationship between the FBI and a flawed, corrupted Clinton
White House, because the FBI waited until the CIA discovered actual evidence
of espionage before they conducted any investigation.
The FBI Director and his entire executive board decided that the best
thing to do about my "embarrassing" book was to copy it, and
to send a copy down to Bill Clintonís White House counsel, Jack Quinn!
Insight Magazine: "This is a very serious security failure
with unimaginable consequences. Anyone could have accessed that and gotten
into the entire White House phone system, and obtained numbers and passwords
that we could never track!"
Call, e-mail or write to your congressman or senators, and local media
outlets, today! Tell them that you think national security is vital, and
that more attention should be given to this issue!
