“I suppose it’s a bit much to expect the FBI to admit its own complicity in a crime of this magnitude, but that is what the evidence suggests”--Jim Fetzer
Newtown has been given $50 million to build a new K-4 elementary school, even though the average cost nationwide is only $7 million. And the families of the alleged victims have received more than $27 million in donations from a sympathetic public.
Moreover, there are reports that “gag orders” were issued to residents within 25 miles of the school, apparently including the use of National Security Letters (NSLs) from the FBI, which recipients are not even allowed to acknowledge they have received.
The highly unusual letters have been used to direct residents to “cease and desist” from talking under threat of prosecution, says Dr. James Fetzer, former U.S. Marine Corps officer, a professor emeritus and journalist for Veterans Today, who has been investigating the case.
Not only were no children killed, Fetzer said, but the school was closed by 2008 and appears to have been used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to run exercises in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the past.
Francis A. Boyle, a Constitutional lawyer and expert on human rights at the University of Illinois School of Law, has characterized NSLs as “totalitarian”: “They violate and nullify the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. They are totalitarian.”
