Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 1 Num. 24

("Quid coniuratio est?")

[From an interview with Linda Thompson on the For the People radio show, Feb. 11, 1994. Host is Chuck Harder.]


CHUCK HARDER: Linda Thompson is our guest. And Linda, you were talking about FINCEN and O-S... OSEDEF?


HARDER: OCDETF [Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force], and the Treasury, and how it ties to who?

THOMPSON: Scott. And some of these other cases.

HARDER: Well, let's hear it.

THOMPSON: All right. FINCEN is the 92 computer data bank center that has all this information about all of us. They're using... Government agencies are supposed to all hook into it. Every single state has a liaison officer for FINCEN who works for the state patrol. So the first thing anybody investigating this should do...

HARDER: Um-hmm. [Understands]

THOMPSON: find out who their liaison officer is with the state patrol in their state. Um... But... What I found most interesting was that both of these organizations operate under Treasury, not under the Department of Justice. Treasury is not a law enforcement body. It never was intended to be. It got that way only through the corruption that has occurred with the ATF. Originally the ATF was formed as a tax enforcement agency for bootleggers. They were supposed to enforce payment of liquor taxes,...

HARDER: Um-hmm. [Understands]

THOMPSON: ...that's all. They're a tax collection agency. Same thing for the IRS.

Well we all know how now the IRS and ATF, both, have goon and thug squads that go out, break in people's doors, and essentially commit mayhem across the country as if they are some sort of law enforcement agency -- which they are not!

Um, but in any event, this OCDETF interested me quite a bit and I found out that they have agents of the IRS that fly with OCDETF that first identify assets of people -- for instance, drug dealers. They use the FINCEN computers to identify assets; they have IRS go with them, to point them out when they make the raid.

The first time FINCEN was used was to identify all the assets of Iraq in this country. And then those assets were seized. You might remember that from a few years ago.

HARDER: Um-hmm. [Affirmative]

THOMPSON: So I would think it's very important to the understanding of the Scott case to realize that we have a government that is targeting assets that they want, first, before they do raids on people!

HARDER: Well now we know also, there's been some investigation in the Scott case, and I believe it was a newspaper out there was amazed that they found out that the multi-jurisdictional forces even had gotten a property appraiser to tell 'em what Scott's property was worth before they went in and raided him!

THOMPSON: Well OCDETF is the multi-jurisdictional task force.


THOMPSON: Because they are the primary agency of that. Because they're under Treasury department. They do fly the black helicopters. They have IRS agents on the helicopters with them and, apparently, Drug Enforcement Agency agents.

HARDER: All right, all right. So they killed Scott.

THOMPSON: Um-hmm. [Affirmative]

HARDER: And what's the bottom line with that case now?

THOMPSON: No apologies. They killed him.

HARDER: That's it.

THOMPSON: That, and the property is in limbo. His wife has had a lot of problems trying to fight what has gone on around it in terms of seizure. They originally seized the property as if it was a drug asset.

HARDER: Um-hmm. [Understands]

THOMPSON: Um, and so far as I know, they haven't been successful in keeping it. Because they didn't... Now we have a Supreme Court ruling that says you must first convict the person of a crime before you can seize their property as a drug asset.

HARDER: Right. Right.

THOMPSON: You also have the "innocent purchaser" protection, which I think his wife would fall under. Because that property was in her name as well.

So. But what you're seeing is a government agency that's using this FINCEN to target properties that they want to steal, essentially. And then coming up with some sort of bogus way to raid the property.

This is applicable to the Branch Davidians as well. Their property is in the middle of property owned by a guy named Perry(?). Perry has wanted their property for years, and in fact was able to get -- before Koresh came there -- he was able to get about 900 acres of it. There is supposed to be a "bullet train" that runs through that part of Texas, through Waco, directly through the Branch Davidian's property, that would essentially make it worth millions of dollars when that goes through.

So there were a lot of potential profit motives involved as well in targeting the Branch Davidians.

HARDER: In other words: These people are in the way; let's get rid of them.

THOMPSON: Uh-huh. [Affirmative]

There were a lot of people after David Koresh for different reasons. He had disgruntled former members that were trying to oust him. He had government people that wanted his property. He had a neighbor that wanted his property...

HARDER: In other words, this is kind of a new method of "eminent domain."

THOMPSON: Um-hmm. [Affirmative] Absolutely.

HARDER: [Bursts out laughing]

THOMPSON: And you know, the king is sovereign. It's not really new. They used to do this in feudal times. If the king wanted property, he'd send his henchmen in to, you know, cut your head off and take your property.

HARDER: So that's what we're doing now, only we're calling it "justice."

We'll be right back with Linda Thompson and more on Waco. Don't go away.
