I suggest that we send a copy of the main ideas of the article to local news stations and congressional representatives, letting them know that the cat is out of the bag and ask them to investigate and make public the truth, what ever it is.

Interesting info.

I almost missed it, though. This link should go directly to the page:

Doing a google on Leo Wanta revealed in part the following:

At http://www.apfn.org/apfn/wanta.htm among many others


A very small portion of the info on Mr. Wanta:

"Assistant Attorney General Douglas Haag, who prosecuted the case, and
attorney Steven Epstein, who represented Wanta, disagreed mightily over who
Wanta was and what he should get for a sentence.

''As tax fraud cases go, this one is big-time,'' said Haag, who established
during the trial that Wanta made $ ?166,000 in 1988 and claimed to have
made nothing, and made $ ?63,000 in 1989 and claimed zero on his taxes.
Haag said that money came from a $ ?500,000 scam in which Wanta got people
to invest in a currency exchange deal.

[color =red]''Mr. Wanta is in fact a con man, nothing more and nothing less,'' he said.
''He is a con man who cons con men.'' [/color]

Haag said Wanta was arrested in Switzerland in 1993 for attempting an $ ?81
million bank fraud. Wanta claimed diplomatic immunity in that case,
contending he was the Somalian ambassador to Canada. The Swiss deported him
to the United States, where he was arrested in New York on the Wisconsin
tax fraud charge.

Wanta is also described in the book, ''A Thieve's World,'' as being
involved in an attempted scam involving Russian rubles.

" A con man who cons con men," wow

Since the situation heavily implicates the Clintons and their ilk, I don't
think the U.S. liberal press will do much. They are still into protecting
that bunch

Default More Cheney

PBS had an excellent Frontline program last night about Cheney's
and Rumsfeld's rolls in engineering and initiating the Iraq War.
Cheney touted as being the most powerful Vice-pres the US
has ever had. :x

Another Exposee of sorts
