The US Government: Misinformation vs Disinformation

Researching this case, I have become aware of a few different observations.  a. People will believe in an Elvis or extra-terrestrial sighting before they question press statements of the local government. b. Even with proof of the civil rights and privacy violations of the NSA, people don’t believe their corrupt city council member would ever lie to them. c. If the government can’t simply explain something, they use ambiguous terms to confuse the masses. ex: The Fast & Furious debacle is officially called a “gunwalking” operation. Gunwalking? It almost makes it sound like the guns themselves are in control of walking to the bad guys, doesn’t it. Another good set of terms are “disinformation” & “misinformation”

This is good. I had to dig into this to understand. Misinformation is used to describe the intelligence info that is inadvertently incorrect. Disinformation is used to describe intelligence info that has been intentionally laid out to deceive.

It appears the cases of intelligence with respect to covert government actions like the Fast & Furious are wrought with misinformation as well as disinformation on the organizations that are supposed to be at the heart of the intelligence (or lack there of) coup that was supposed to track the guns.

Enter Hugh Wiggins, a known gun runner, caught with a small arsenal of weapons and known connection to Los Zetas as well as the Gulf Cartel. In order to try to save their asses in this misinformation & disinformation faux pas, the feds cut him a deal for the correct info he is able to give them about his associates.  The catch is the man is a murderer.

This is the dilemma of the law enforcement agents in this case, FBI, DEA, and local officials. The FBI & DEA have what they want out of this set of circumstances.  Now what do prosecutors and sheriff supposed to do? They have made too many statements to national news outlets. They have released all the evidence in press releases. Search warrants, transcripts of the statements given to police by a number of people.  The biggest issue is that just about every statement wording to the effect of  “Patrick was the shooter” or “Patrick planned and killed those people”.  Now these documents were accessed by a number of people within the county. There is no question that Patrick is the shooter based on these forms. Here’s the problem. These are ALLEGATIONS. It was presented to the public as fact. The prospective jurors are being told that Patrick is the murder without a doubt.

This nullifies the jury pool. They are presented with non-facts as facts. Then you have Sheriff Morgan shaking jurors’ hands saying “I did my part. I trust you will do yours in putting these people away.” This is another thing that sounds like the Sheriff is directing the jurors as to what they “should” do. This is all tainting the opinions of the jurors. This is highly improper.

Is there any wonder why Patrick was convicted in just 3 days??

“We’re all mad here!”

It boggles the mind that this case could be so engrossing and yet depicted as so simple. Pensacola is corrupt. It is rotten to the core. This murder is less than 3 degrees of separation from any one there. But I have to say I was surprised at some of the people in the mix. Doctors, lawyers. The connection of the Billings to Sheriff David Morgan is a “humdinger”.  He is associated to Arety  who is a “colleague” of Billings. We can trace that influence to the spat with County Administrator, George Touart, then you get links to W.D. Childers & Willie Junior. Everyone remembers Willie Junior, right? Committing suicide under a house? THIS IS ALL SO BIZARRE!

 

 

 

I half expect Capone descendants to come out of the woodwork! The murders of the Billings’ is just needle in the pine. It is small event in a larger picture. The two major cartels were battling over territory that inevitably resulted in only one standing. Then we have the guns. The guns are the guns linked to an Homeland Security investigation…..which investigation might that be????  Oh, the one where we allowed “gunwalking”  We let suspicious  people buy guns with paper bags of cash. So we could “track”  those guns.  But those guns showed up in the murder of  DEA agents.

 

Let’s look at the timelime:

    •  July, 2009-Billings’ murder. Hugh Wiggins is caught with an arsenal of guns. He receives an immunity deal that covers multiple federal, state and local crimes.
    • August, 2009-the official “gunwalking” begins under Project Gunrunner; guns were tagged & recorded to follow up on where they “turn up”.
    • September, 2009- June, 2010- Three major DEA operations make huge arrests involving guns and narcotics coming from Mexico.
    • Early 2010- Los Zetas officially severs ties with the Gulf Cartel. By most accounts, the Gulf Cartel ceases to remain an organization.

Is it possible that Hugh Wiggins’ dropped a dime on someone in July that resulted in the events mentioned above?  Absolutely.

 

Where does that leave Escambia County?  We have 2 murder victims. It has made national news. Sheriff Morgan states repeatedly in the press that Patrick Gonzalez Jr. is the mastermind and the murderer. He says it to newspapers, national news syndicates, local news. Everywhere you look you see David Morgan’s face less than 10 days after the murder claiming this has all been wrapped up in a nice little “home invasion robbery”.  What happens when an FBI evidence report puts Hugh Wiggins’ DNA with Byrd Billings blood on a pair of gloves? The report is tossed aside.
