Whistle-blower calls out government in Facebook posts, gets threatened by the DOJ
Oct. 7, 2013
William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot who flew arms and ammunition for the agency during the Cuban Project of the 1950s, has been targeted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for directing hard-hitting questions toward the Senate, Congress and the president on his Facebook page.
Plumlee has appeared as a guest on the Alex Jones Show several times and is highly respected for his whistle-blowing efforts, particularly in exposing a coverup in which the CIA was facilitating transactions of weapons in exchange for drugs and in support of the Iran-Contra effort in Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
“Numerous field reports have stated Plumlee flew arms to Nicaragua during the Iran-Contra Scandal,” conspiracy researcher and author Jim Marrs wrote last month.
Plumlee testified to the US Senate that “he had returned to the US with loads of cocaine during the Reagan years,” and has since blown the whistle on the clandestine operations and also on similar operations being conducted presently in the Middle East.
“He reported to federal officials large shipments of ‘High Impact’ weapons as well as small arms and ammunition being funneled through a network of clandestine CIA safe houses in Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, Pakistan and other Middle Eastern locations by hired civilians and mercenaries financed by private US corporations and the CIA’s ‘Black Budget,’” wrote Marrs.
Plumlee affirms that for several years the US government has aided in the sale of arms to the Syrian rebels with American intelligence agents operating from safe houses inside the Middle Eastern country.
The former CIA contract pilot, along with other researchers, allege that the CIA was smuggling arms seized from Libyan warehouses and shipping them to the Syrian rebels even before the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Plumlee says his trouble with the DOJ and DHS began when an agent from one of the investigative committees in D.C. requested he meet with them at the Peterson Air Force Base to discuss the information he received from his sources in the Middle East.
Apparently, the representatives from the D.C. investigative committee wanted Plumlee’s information regarding the arms smuggling taking place in the Middle East, but canceled their meeting after Plumlee released what he knew to media outlets (including Infowars, see below for his two full interviews with Alex).
The representatives told him they canceled the meeting due to pending government cuts and layoffs, but that the limited information he provided to them was being turned over to the DOJ and DHS for their own independent investigation concerning the leaking of ‘National Security Matters’ to the media.
On Oct. 3, Plumlee posted 14 questions directed to the government in which a simple “yes” or “no” would have sufficed. Plumlee received no response to his questions, but did, however, receive a threat from the DOJ demanding to know where he got his information. When he replied that he was a journalist and refused to divulge his sources, he was threatened with “We’ll see about that.”
Following the threat, Plumlee went to Infowars to expose what he knew. Below are his two full interviews.
