PETER'S NEW YORK, Wednesday, July 3, 2013--The "Whitey" Bulger trial would appear to be a huge coverup scheme for the FBI. How can one tell this? By reverse engineering National Public Radio (NPR) coverage. The premise being promoted by that news outlet is that Bulger, allegedly a career criminal, singlehandedly corrupted the FBI, and not visa versa. The FBI itself would seem to be demonstrably into murder, mayhem and more. Its agents just off'ed for no apparent reason a young fellow they were interviewing in relation to the Boston Marathon bombing. Strong evidence indicates the FBI orchestrated the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Its agents murdered the Chicago-based Islamic cleric Luqman Abdullah a number of years ago, but publicly lavished love on a dog who died in the raid. These are very sick people.

FBI agents listened in on what should have been confidential conversations between counsel and the blind Islamic cleric Omar Abdel Rahman, who has been stewing in jail since 1995 for scratching his nose the wrong way. Rahman's attorney, Lynne Stewart, is also in prison, a victim of the FBI's policy of disabling jurisprudence wherever and whenever possible. And the No. 2 FBI official at the time, Mark Felt, claimed to have orchestrated the ouster of U.S. President Richard Nixon.

Bulger was a natural ally for the FBI and its shenanigans. After doing the heavy lifting for a number of the agency's schemes, Bulger laid low for a good many years, after which the FBI figuratively dug him up and is now using his trial to bury its own skeletons, which can be found scattered far and wide beyond anything having to do with Bulger. The key question of the corrupt condition of the FBI remains virtually unasked by talking heads at the networks. There is no need to go into the details about Bulger, what he is said to have done, and what the FBI is known to have done, because the over-spin of practically every article written about it is lethally boring. The agency must be delighted by a book on the subject that magically emerged just as the trial was getting underway and that seems to take the FBI's side.

Apparently the Bulger trial is bought and paid for lock stock and barrel by the agency, which, according to NPR, managed to broker deals with the numerous witnesses facing charges related to the murders Bulger is accused of committing.

NPR did manage to churn out something of merit yesterday. On one of the network's daily features, The Writer's Almanac, the suicide of Ernest Hemmingway was broached. Hemmingway believed he was being stalked by the FBI. After his death, according to the program, it was verified that agents had indeed been trailing him. Did this contribute to his suicide? It brings back memories of the Bruce Ivins case. Ivins, a government scientist, was being trailed by the FBI when in 2008 he allegedly killed himself with an overdose of Tylenol. Few who knew him believed he had created the anthrax virus that was disseminated in the wake of 9-11 and killed several people. But the FBI, after pinning the blame on Ivins immediately following his death, declared the case closed. Congressional hearings on the matter? Nah. The FBI's blackmailing teams have paralyzed our representative government. Spitzer, Blagojevich, et al are all casualties of the FBI's lavish intelligence gathering, stalking, and selective prosecution schemes. If an elected official does not step down at its behest, the FBI will pounce on that official and send him or her to jail. Who is it that gave the FBI the power to negotiate resignation of an elected official as a tradeoff for non-prosecution of a crime? That's meddling with the electoral process. Can we charge the FBI with that crime?
