Re: “Ron Howard to direct movie about Arkansas's most notorious drug smuggler, Barry Seal

RADICAL CENTRIST - I saw the excellent little doco on Mena back in mid 1995??? Are you saying that it was a crock? I dont think so. As for Roger - I am relating what Roger told me. Roger is many things - but he is not a liar. He spoke with Barry about it personally. Barry told him what happened. That the Sherrif shot the boys and laid them on the track. According to Roger Barry was so upset he could'nt fly for a while. So, who to beleive? I am not "anti-Clinton". As for "links" between Seal and Clinton? Who says there has to be "direct links"? The link is cocaine profits and a long line of corruption all the way to the top of the state establishment. Do you think its any different here in little old Western Australia? The police run the drugs here. They are deeply linked in with the banking and finance sector. The financial markets cant survive without that liquid cash - the restaurants, car dealers, real estate etc. They all rely on drug money. The Clintons were into it up to their necks. They all are. Hell, in the mid 90's the Australian Federal Police were running a Casino for the Indonesian Suharto clan to launder their drug money and embezzled IMF funds through on Christmas Island. Look it up. It's funny becuase its true - and hidden in palin view. A contact wroked there at the height of the money laundering. AFP were running the show.

Re: “Ron Howard to direct movie about Arkansas's most notorious drug smuggler, Barry Seal

My name is Brendon O'Connell. I spent time in jail (in Western Australia) with Barry Seals best friend and EMPLOYER, Mr William "Roger" Reaves. I was in Acacia Prison when I first met Roger. Prisoners told me about him and I found out he had smuggled in 1 ton of cocaine into the states sparsely populated north west. His co-accused was famous NFL footbal star Joel Parrish.

Roger was sentenced to 18 years to life.

Two Columbians were sentenced to 20 years to life and 25 years to life respectively.

Last I heard Roger was about to be approved for an international prisoner transfer but I cannot find out what happened because WA authorities are not telling me where he is in the system.

Roger asked me to help him get his book published. It is excellent. Called "Smuggler" and WAY better tan "Blow" or "Mr Nice". In fact I have a letter from Roger wit a copy of the letter having Mr Howard Marks admitting his book is "made up".

Roger told me about Mena. How Barry was very upset when the local Sherrif shot those two 12 year old boys in the head and then lay their bodies on the railway tracks where they were chopped up. Hillary Clinton's mother covered it up when she was the coroner. Roger said the Clinton's were deeply involved in the drug trade - then again, to be fair, so were the Bush family :-)

Roger said Barry was a very nice man and his best friend even though Barry cost Roger jail time. Roger met Barry on a plane flight in the early 70's when he was explaining to his wife about what certain noises were - Barry Seal spoke up and asked if Roger was a pilot? Roger replied yes and Roger then EMPLOYED Barry Seal. Roger was the Ochoa clans number one pilot. Roger saysd the stuff written about Ochoa is garbage - that he was a nice respectful man - but if you snitched - well, you knew the consequences.

Roger got his co-accused off (Joel Parris) by getting two written references by SITTING Supreme Court Justices! Beat that! Joel went home after three trials.

Roger is a gentleman. Everyone likes him. The Crown appealed his first sentence of 14-25 years and got him life. The judge said he was but a "mule" rather than the brains but on appeal the sentence was raised to 18 to life.

I have Rogers manuscript. If anyone knows Ron Howard I will be glad to give it to him.

James Cameron (Hollywood Director) sent a representative to see Roger at Acacia Prison in 2008 but nothing happened.
