The mainstream press is deliberately ignoring critical information about a missing Washington intern and covert espionage infiltrating Washington’s highest officials.

The mainstream press has concentrated on the titillating details of Chandra Levy’s sexual relationship with Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.) while studiously avoiding or obscuring the most important aspect of the missing intern’s brief career in Washington.

Levy mysteriously disappeared 19 weeks ago.

Levy’s connection with intelligence, her work as an intern at the Bureau of Prisons and her role in the execution of Timothy McVeigh, the confessed bomber of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, have been ignored in the mainstream media.

The Intelligence Committee, of which Condit is a member, manages the nation’s nuclear and military secrets including the actual budget of the CIA. In this position Condit has, for example, access to the information contained in the sealed evidence files of the Oklahoma City bombing and government case against McVeigh.

The parents of Levy are also represented by Billy Martin, a former federal prosecutor, who represented Marcia Lewis, Monica Lewinsky’s mother, during the inquiry into her relationship with President Clinton.


“The Israeli Mossad’s primary modus operandi is to work through high-level appointed and elected American Jews in the U.S. government,” says Sherman Skolnick, a Chicago-based writer and researcher.* “They also work through the ‘U.S.A. Government Internship Program’ to place personnel in key positions.

“Young, bright, and well-educated American Jews are first indoctrinated, trained and then placed in key U.S. government agencies in order to carry out specific intelligence operations.”

According to Skolnick, the acting deputy chief for the Mossad in North America is Rahm Emanuel, who was a senior adviser to the Clinton White House for six years. Emanuel, a Chicagoan who served in the Israeli army, is now reportedly considering running for Congress in Illinois.

“If you understand ‘spook’ work, black bag operatives, and such,” Skolnick says, “you can comprehend our assertion that Rahm was both a Clinton loyalist and a contributor to his scandals by way of manipulating him, all at the same time.”

After leaving the Clinton White House, Emanuel became a managing director of an investment bank, Wasserstein Perella.

According to Skolnick, Wasserstein Perella specializes in “laundering funds of the Red Chinese Secret Police through the Chicago markets.”

Levy studied criminal justice and journalism in college and was a graduate student at the University of Southern California, working on a master’s degree in public administration. As a teenager, she had done volunteer work for her local police department and reportedly aspired to work for the FBI or the CIA.

Levy had apparently visited Israel shortly before she became missing. While Washington police scoured area parks looking for her corpse, an independent Israeli journalist, Uzi Cohen, reported that Levy was seen on July 14 entering an Israeli government building in Tel Aviv which houses the Institution for Intelligence and Special Assignments.

The Institution is the official spy agency for the Israeli government, commonly known as the Mossad.


Cohen has also apparently now disappeared without a trace, according to Ernesto Cienfuegos, the editor of La Voz de Aztlan, a Los Angeles-based newspaper that carried the Cohen story on July 15.

“Mr. Cohen is from Tel Aviv and it is now very difficult to communicate with anyone there concerning the spotting,” Cienfuegos says. “There has been a total blackout of any information from Israel concerning Chandra Levy and her connection to the Mossad.”

The mainstream media has scrupulously avoided any serious investigation of Levy’s position as an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons, part of the Department of Justice, where she worked 40 hours a week for six months prior to her disappearance.

The press has generally not covered the details of her workplace, interviewed her managers or co-workers, or discussed the nature of her assignments.

Law enforcement investigators have little interest in investigating Levy’s workplace either, Skolnick says. “They seem to be treating it as if it were radioactive. For example, they talk about her email account at home, but show no interest at all in her email account at work.”

Levy, who reportedly had a boyfriend in the FBI, became an intern in the press affairs office of the BOP at the very time the logistics of the McVeigh execution were being arranged. Levy worked in this position during the winter and spring leading up to the original execution date, May 16, for Timothy McVeigh, “the lone bomber” of the federal building in Oklahoma City.

The FBI was the lead agency in the McVeigh case and the Federal Bureau of Prisons was the agency that arranged McVeigh’s execution.

While she worked at the BOP, a friend introduced Levy to Condit, whose district includes Modesto, Levy’s hometown. Her internship at the BOP ended on April 23. On April 30, Levy cancelled her membership at a local health club, which was the last time she was seen in public, according to authorities.

On May 6, 10 days prior to the original date set for McVeigh’s execution, her parents, unable to reach her, reported her missing. Although Levy had talked with her mother about her return trip to California, she had not provided any details of her travel plans, something her mother thought odd.

The Washington Times published a story entitled “Who is Chandra Levy?” on July 29, which discussed Levy’s assignment at the BOP.

The article noted that “her job at the Bureau of Prisons information office required her to do internet searches and scan newspapers to prepare daily news summaries, answer telephone calls and mail, and help with special projects. In one, she coordinated media attendance at planning sessions for the execution of Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh.”

The McVeigh matter was not the only thing Levy “handled” using her position at a key place in the Federal Bureau of Prisons apparatus. She reportedly unearthed details tending to incriminate former President George H. W. Bush and his sons George W. and Jeb, among others.

During her internship at BOP, Levy was inquiring into “a great little-mentioned secret,” the unexplained disappearance from the federal prison system of Carlos Enrique Lehder Rivas, also known as Carlos Lehder, according to Skolnick.

Lehder is the only drug cartel baron to have been extradited to the United States where he was put on trial on federal criminal charges, convicted, and originally sentenced to more than a life term.

“With the aid and blessings of the elder Bush and his sons, and the American CIA, Lehder was the co-founder of the Medellin Dope Cartel in Colombia,” Skolnick says.

The Medellin Drug Cartel, co-founded by Carlos Lehder, a Bush family business partner, was headquartered in the United States rather than Colombia, according to Skolnick.

It was part of the whole CIA operation to the southern states of the United States, headquartered, in part, through an airport in western Arkansas, at Mena,” Skolnick said. “The elder Bush, his sons Jeb and George W., and Ollie North, and Bill Clinton, were all part of the operation.”

The “tiny First National Bank of Mena, Ark., was purchased by the Riady family, ethnic Chinese tied to Bill Clinton and the Bush family. The bank reportedly was a transmission point for the huge dope cash flow which went up to Garfield Ridge Trust & Savings Bank of Chicago.”

Chandra Levy, through her sensitive position at the BOP, their computers and facilities, and human intelligence contacts, unearthed “dangerous details,” according to Skolnick.

“Did Chandra Ann Levy know too much about the real background of the Timothy McVeigh matter? Did she run for her life? Was she caused to disappear?” Skolnick asks.

“Who can make a person disappear without a trace, manipulate the media into framing a patsy and take control of a criminal investigation?” he asks.
